Bill was very knowledgeable and was always up on his research. He had sources and connections that eased the stress of some tricky moments. He was always willing to run all over the place. He was in constant contact and always laid out our options in a very satisfactory manner. He stuck with us through a couple selling seasons, which comforted us.
I was very pleased with the service I received while working with Bill. Having this be my first home, he made the process simple and stress free. I really appreciated his work.
Bill did an exceptional job and worked through our very “challenged ” buyer that bought our house. Bill was the perfect person to handle all of this and we are very happy how it all came together and closed at the end.
Bill was great when we bought our house 2 years ago and just as good when we sold it just recently, cant wait to have him help us by the next one.
Prior to earning his Realtor License in 2009, Bill Schmidt worked on the financial side of real estate. He earned a Bachelor of Finance Degree in 1990 and a Masters Degree in Business Administration in 1997, both from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. For over 19 years, Bill held positions in consumer lending, commercial lending and bank operations at financial institutions such as US Bank (formerly First Wisconsin/Firstar), Associated Bank (formerly State Financial Bank) and Anchor Bank.
His former experience as Vice President of Commercial Lending has prepared him for the day-to-day details of buying, selling and investing in the real estate market. Bill utilizes this expertise every day to ensure unparalleled knowledge of the real estate market, a thorough understanding of your needs and the ability to ultimately complete a smooth transaction for his customers.
Bill Schmidt guides his clients through each step in the transaction. He takes the approach of a facilitator, providing timely information and thoughtful advice, to allow the clients to make the decision that is right for them. His philosophy is that the transaction is ultimately the choice of the client, not the realtor, and his role is to support and advocate on his clients behalf. He has an easy going personality and likes to have fun at his job but at the same time understands that real estate is likely the largest investment one will make in their lifetime and as such treats his clients with the utmost respect.
Bill Schmidt was born and raised in a small town in Sheboygan County. After graduating from Plymouth High School in 1985 he moved to the east side of Milwaukee to attend college. Upon graduation he spent the next 11 years living and working in and around the Milwaukee area. In 2002 he moved his family to the town of West Bend where they were able to purchase a lot and build their dream home. As a resident of West Bend for 16 years, he has been involved in his community through West Bend Little League, Basketball, Scouting and Our Savior’s Lutheran Church.
Aside from his enthusiasm for real estate, Bill has a passion for travel, especially anywhere warm and tropical. When he is away, he keeps in close contact with his clients by taking his office (lap top/cell phone) with him.
Bill works with buyers and sellers throughout Southeastern Wisconsin in both Residential and Commercial Real Estate transactions, including: Single Family Homes, Condos, Investment Properties, and Foreclosures. His vast market knowledge, advanced education and experience in all aspects of the real estate transaction play a large part of his success in providing a great service to his clients.
