Gretchen Schmidt

Managing Broker
Helping clients achieve their real estate goals

With over 10 years experience in real estate and over 15 years in finance and operations, I am not your typical real estate broker. I am not a salesperson. I see my role as a facilitator, helping my clients do something they really want to do. My service philosophy is that I treat people as “clients for life”. 

When I'm not working with clients, I love cycling and travelling. Weekends you will find me riding around the area with my boyfriend or dad, or mountain biking in the surrounding trails. We usually plan our routes around good fries and beer (my two vices). I've got two great kids who are a lot of fun. My family did a month long bike tour from Canada to California with three generations of Schmidts. I also love cooking, eating, reading and being with friends.

A home is a big investment. I take pride in investing myself in you as much as you are investing in your home. Getting to know you, using my intimate knowledge of Seattle and the Eastside to help you, advocating and protecting you in negotiations and closing is what I do. I provide information every step of the way and provide guidance so that you can make sound decisions.  Building relationships with my clients is a lifelong endeavor. I believe that service continues long after the sale has closed. I look forward to working with you now or in the future.
