Here’s what Realtors have to say about joining Schmidt:

When joining Schmidt, I knew that I would be joining a team with a high level of integrity and professionalism that put client needs first.  Clients are the number one priority and every realtor provides the same consistent level of service.  I value the team approach that we have at Schmidt and the resulting balance that I am able to have in my life.  The entire team at Schmidt  is so positive and awesome to work with!
– Roxane Tiessen, REALTOR®

There are two things that made Schmidt stand out to me while I was searching for a place to call “home”.

  1. The team at SCHMIDT is transparent about what your journey will be like. They’re open and willing to talk about the struggles you’ll face as a new Realtor, but are also very eager to share the victories and why choosing a career in real estate and at Schmidt is worth while.
  2. Most new Realtors look for a training program when they’re choosing the brokerage they want to work for. SCHMIDT goes an extra mile when it comes to training; it’s almost like you get put into a mentorship program, which offers direct working experience with management and senior agents. Because of this, the environment is supportive and genuine, not competitive like you’d expect in a traditional sales atmosphere.

Why did I choose Schmidt?  I was looking for a strong team dynamic. A place with a work/life balance and coverage so my clients are always served first and foremost.
– Tahnee Botten, REALTOR®

I think we all hear stories of someone we know deciding they want to get into real estate, and only lasting a few months before realizing that it’s not at all what they expected. I tend to be a planner, so when I decided that I wanted to move into a career in real estate, I wanted to make sure I was going to do everything I could to succeed and be prepared. One night, while researching what a career in real estate was REALLY like, I stumbled on to a Kijiji ad for a realtor information session and I was quick to RSVP. When I met with Kathy and Sabrina, the session was so much more than I could have hoped for – it gave me the real information – not all of it pretty, and a chance to ask all my questions. The session really gave me the assurance that I was making the right career choice and I left the session elated and inspired, and wanting to equip myself with the best chance for success and knowing exactly what I needed to do. As a result it was another two years of planning, saving and studying before I moved into my successful  real estate career. There was never any pressure at the session to join Schmidt – they are passionate about education and really want to raise the bar for real estate professionals joining the industry no matter the brokerage they choose! However, when it came time for me to choose a brokerage, Schmidt was an obvious fit for me and I couldn’t see myself anywhere else. I really feel like the information session set me up for success!
