Aricha Smith is a Eugene native. She knows this peaceful, yet dynamic city and the greater Pacific Northwest intimately. She grew up with parents in the the construction and real estate industries so becoming a Realtor was a fitting choice. Her educational and professional background has taken her to Wyoming and Arizona, enabling her to experience the beauty of the mountains and the desert. She obtained a BA in English from the University of Oregon and is an E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher, especially versed in Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra meditation. For leisure, she enjoys running with her dog Maple, hiking, reading, and thrifting. She prides herself on her love for organization, having a personable nature, and her ability to hold space for clients--just as she does in a yoga class.
She loves to travel and considers moving an exciting variation of it, recognizing that though it is often considered a commonplace experience, it is far more than that, as it marks the beginning of a whole new chapter. She understands that it is a mixed experience--sometimes invigorating and fresh, sometimes disorienting or even grief-inducing. Thus, she is dedicated to being fully present with clients to allow for all shades of the experience to exist if need be. Her ultimate goal is to escort Buyers or Sellers to the next phase of the journey with compassion and guidance unique to their needs.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Aricha as our Realtor as we bought our first home. To say that Aricha goes above and beyond is an understatement; Aricha supported us through every question, every moment of anxiety, and every point of excitement. Anytime we had a question, Aricha always got an answer back to us, including after the purchase of the home was finished. This experience would not have been possible for us without her soothing presence, vast knowledge, and proactive nature. We are so thankful we had Aricha as a Realtor, and would highly recommend her to anyone who asks!

People tell you that buying your first home is stressful but we were completely unprepared for just how intense the process would be. That’s why I am so grateful we had Aricha as our agent. She provided a soothing, level-headed approach to each one of our concerns throughout the entire buying process. From navigating the complexities of the mortgage agreement to handling various conflicts, she was grace under pressure so we didn’t have to be. I would certainly hope to have her as our agent if we buy again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking themselves.

I decided to work with Aricha because she was a friend, and I was pleased to experience the fact that she's also a dedicated and driven professional. She was right on top of every step and she kept things moving smoothly. Her guidance through the new-to-me process of home buying made it easy and understandable.
