“Garla found the perfect Smart Mom to help my company. She personally ensured that several amazing resumes ended up in my hands and ultimately one of those accountants was the right person for us. Robin Whitsett”
“Garla Smith at Smart Moms recently helped us fill a part-time position in our organization. Garla really took the time to understand our needs and produce quality, personalized results. We could not be happier and will definitely reach out to her again! Dawn Lenns ”
“Garla is an extremely personable and well-trained presenter who delivers expert content. She did an excellent job of researching topics and understanding her audience in order to provide timely, relevant information. She was the highest rated presenter and workshop leader at the 2013 Council for Women Statewide Displaced Homemaker Program. I enjoyed working with Garla and would highly recommend her to organizations seeking an engaging business presenter. Mary Williams-Stover NC Council for Women”

“I met Garla in the late 2000’s and listed Smart Moms on teddslist.com because they were a locally-owned independent business. When it came time to hire some local team members, we reached out to her. She made the process super simple and streamlined. We had an in-depth conversation about what type of team member we were looking for and she did all the heavy lifting. She has a huge network of very talented, stay-at-home moms + dads, and simply had to put out the message of what we were looking for, then sort through the ones that would be the best fits. After that, she did 2-3 interviews with them, filtering down to 2-3 candidates for us to interview. The candidates had been filtered and selected so well that it took us one phone interview and one face-to-face interview to make an offer! The time and energy not spent by us in this process was able to remain focused on the business instead of the adding of team members, and is highly recommended for other business owners who are looking for remote / stay-at-home moms + dads to help them in growing their businesses!

“We used Smart Moms for our recruiting in early 2019. Garla’s services were invaluable to us. She vetted all candidates based upon some very specific parameters we provided, and narrowed our search down to three very qualified candidates. We hired one of the candidates, and couldn’t be more pleased. Garla’s services were worth every penny we paid. We would recommend her and will definitely use her services again, should we have a hiring need. Deanna Brocker Brocker Law Firm ”

“I can not express how pleased we are with the work Angel is doing. She has taken on every project we have thrown at her and works well independently. She takes ownership over all that she does and is extremely proactive. We are thrilled with having her here.”
“Thanks so much for your help. Three of the candidates were all perfect for the job and it was hard to choose between them. The fourth candidate was not a good fit just because she doesn’t have the software. She was very professional about letting me know that she was not a good fit for the job. The candidate I chose will really help me. I’m very impressed with how quickly everyone got back to me and how professional they were. Thanks for providing this service.”

I didn’t have worry about advertising, time-consuming interviews, background checks, etc. ..I will continue to recommend them to my business contacts. Thanks, Smart Moms!”
After posting my ad on Smart Moms the emails and phone calls began poring in. It was so easy and required only about 15 minutes of my time. Smart Moms got the word out to the public and I just had to interview the people that responded. Smart Moms is helpful, professional and a valuable resource!”

When I needed an administrative assistant, I did not have the time to undertake the entire hiring process. Smart Moms did everything necessary to find the perfect fit.”
I know the owners of Smart Moms and they are highly ethical, competent recruiters. They place women who want only part time work and they do it well. They found me perfect match for my part time bookkeeping needs. Their screening is meticulous.
I highly recommend Smart Moms if you need a qualified part time or virtual staff member.”

“Smart Moms are exactly what they say they are, and more than expected. They found two excellent candidates for an Executive Assistant position for me and guided me through the decision. I now have a right arm and can focus on the highest return for my time while relying on my Assistant to keep the engine running.”
“I would like to take the opportunity to let you know what a great job Denise did as our virtual receptionist. He always handled our incoming calls professionally and courteously and was thorough and timely in replying to our messages. We appreciate the high level of service provided by Smart Moms.”
