Missy Wyant Smit
As the fifth ranked agent in San Francisco, Missy’s interest in real estate began early. She spent several summers working for a real estate investment company where projects ranged from analyzing investments and managing renovations to creating marketing materials for rental properties. For the last twenty years, she has served on the board of a privately held real estate company, which develops and manages residential and commercial properties in urban neighborhoods.
Missy has been a San Francisco real estate agent for fifteen years and consistently ranks within the top 10 agents in the city. Prior to being a founding agent of Compass San Francisco in 2016, Missy was the #1 producer at Hill & Company. She enjoys an exceptional reputation both with her clients and colleagues and is known for being hardworking, direct and trustworthy. Her clients will tell you that she goes out of her way to identify and adjust to their needs. Service is the operative word.
Enthusiastic, competitive, and goal-oriented, Missy is a graduate of Princeton University, where she captained a national championship squash team and achieved first team All-American honors four times. She remains an active squash player at The University Club and plays in tournaments across the country. She brings that same exceptional level of performance and a winning mentality to her real estate practice.
Missy is married to Yvo Smit and they have two daughters who attend the Katherine Delmar Burke School. Together they enjoy San Francisco's outdoor lifestyle and the city's restaurants.

A San Francisco native, Sharon was born in Bernal Heights and grew up on both coasts, eventually attending Boston University. She began her real estate career photographing properties during her senior year of college before graduating in 2008 with a degree in International Relations and Spanish Language and Literature. She spent two years traveling through Central and South America, improving her Spanish and exploring the cultures. Upon her return, Sharon lived briefly in Atlanta, Georgia and finally moved back to San Francisco in 2012 and has been focused on her real estate career ever since. In 2014 she began working as an agent on a team with Missy Wyant Smit, where she has worked on over $500 million in real estate transactions.
Having worked in real estate markets all over the country, she is uniquely qualified to work in San Francisco’s dynamic and fast-paced market and has learned through her travels that adaptability is essential to the city’s ever-changing real estate landscape. Her minute attention to detail and organizational skills in addition to her ever-present optimism are the backbones of a well-oiled process that results in the best possible service and outcomes for her clients.
A competitive swimmer, Sharon recently swam the English Channel as part of a Swim Across America relay team in an effort to raise money for pediatric cancer research. In addition to swimming, she enjoys exploring new restaurants and hiking trails all over the Bay Area.
Henry Demasco serves the Missy Wyant Smit Team as Director of Marketing, responsible for all brand and listing-specific marketing efforts. Henry cut his teeth in real estate as a Marketing Advisor to a number of top-producing Compass agents across the San Francisco Bay Area. He started his career in strategy and account management at Godfrey Dadich Partners and Siegel+Gale, working on a variety of brand, design, and editorial projects for clients including Google, Wells Fargo, National Geographic, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco.
Henry brings to the team a considered approach to marketing fueled by a deep-rooted passion for storytelling. As a student of Classics and Classical Archaeology at Edinburgh, Harvard, and Oxford Universities, he was charged with decoding meaning from visual, material, and literary culture. He later gravitated toward marketing because it offered the chance to practice the inverse process: of encoding meaning, connecting people to things. Compass’ mission – to help everyone find their place in the world – is the grandest possible expression of that process, and Henry can think of no other team with (or city in!) which he would rather do this work.
In his spare time, Henry enjoys playing soccer, drinking dark beer, consuming content, puzzles, Rough Collies, and spending time with friends and family. He lives in the Castro.
After almost 10 years living in different parts of the country, Julia is thrilled to be back to her Northern California roots, currently calling Laurel Heights home. Originally from Sacramento, she attended the University of Kentucky where she earned a Communications Degree and enjoyed experiencing everything the South has to offer. Upon graduating, she made the move back to California, landing first in Orange County and eventually Los Angeles. Her real estate path began in Southern California where she worked as the Systems Director for a fast-growing and award-wining brokerage firm. During her four years there, she helped grow the company from 20 employees to a team of over 100 and from one office to five offices across the country. Her focus was to create effective internal systems that provided unmatched support for the brokerage team, ultimately ensuring outstanding service for clients.
Despite daily sunshine that comes with being a Southern California resident, Julia was eager to make her way back to the Bay Area. She spent her first year in San Francisco working for a real estate private equity company, which invests in high-profile developments. In 2018, Julia began working as Project Manager on Missy Wyant Smit’s top-producing Compass team.
Like the rest of the team, Julia’s drive to win started as a high school and college lacrosse player. Julia continues to live and enjoy an active lifestyle, frequently taking advantage of the City’s many spin studios and running trails. She enjoys exploring Northern California’s diversity with weekend trips to Wine Country, Lake Tahoe and Carmel. When she’s not traveling, you’re likely to find Julia spending her weekends in the Presidio with her chocolate Lab, cheering on her Kentucky Wildcats, or exploring San Francisco in search of the City’s best fish tacos.
