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, won prestigious awards and have been featured in numerous home shows. But our proudest accomplishment is that we’ve never missed a closing date – not once since 1958. Our on-time delivery promise means everything to us because it means everything to you.  It’s a value that’s been handed down from Gerhard to Alan, Sr. and in turn to me and every employee (many who’ve been with us for over 20 years) of Schmidt Builders.
