Hand built of love and passion
When asked, “Why I decided to join the family home building business?” I often reply “Because I had no choice – how could I not be a part of this tremendous organization that was hand built of love and passion!” I can’t imagine not continuing the legacy that was started over sixty years ago by my grandfather, Gerhard. Schmidt Builders is an heirloom home building company. It’s been a treasured gift that’s been passed on from generation to generation and a trusted community brand. And while it’s not expected for my son or daughter to continue this tradition, I sure hope it’s one they’ll embrace!
Through the years, we’ve held highly visible positions (and still do) on Boards and Committees. We’ve won prestigious awards and have been featured in numerous home shows. But our proudest moments have come when we’ve received letters of thanks from the hundreds of families we’ve built homes for across the greater Cincinnati area and northern Kentucky since 1958.
It seems that home building is just in our blood – and while technology, trends, and home plans have changed, what we pledge to our families hasn’t – build a stunning, solidly-constructed home, backed by unmatched customer service and guaranteed by our word.
Today, as in the past, Schmidt homes are designed to meet the changing needs of today’s home buyers – great trend setting designer features and options, superior craftsmanship, a smooth and efficient process, and the ability to customize home plans in beautiful neighborhoods in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas.
At Schmidt Builders we understand the significance of your financial and emotional investment with us. Rest assured that our commitment to you doesn’t stop once we hand over the keys. From our extraordinary customer care to our exceptional home warranty, we are honored that your family’s traditions will begin with Schmidt Builders!
Schmidt Builders. Traditions begin here.
