Schmidt Family of Companies has experienced phenomenal growth since its inception in 1927. Founded by Harold F. Schmidt, the company is now led by his grandson and great-grandson.
H.F. Schmidt Real Estate, as the firm was originally known, was based on the principles of honesty, integrity, and an unwavering commitment to outstanding service. Harold Schmidt’s adherence to these standards of excellence earned him the trust and confidence of his clients, building a solid foundation for what was to become one of the most respected and largest real estate brokerage firms in the Midwest.
Harold’s son, Joseph Schmidt, joined the company in 1946 and under his leadership the company experienced unparalleled growth. His sons Fred and Ken entered the company in 1962 and 1968, respectively. Today, Ken Schmidt is the CEO of the firm, Mike Schmidt is President, Tom Gray is the COO, and Steve Bell is CFO. The firm joined Coldwell Banker Corporation as a franchisee in 1983 and Century 21 in 2017. Schmidt Family of Companies is now a fifth generation real estate firm and is one of the largest and most successful real estate affiliates in the country.
