Get to know Bridget Schmidt

It is always difficult to write about yourself, but that is what this section requires.  So, let me tell you a few things about me.  First, my family is my greatest asset and the joy of my life.  I am married to a great guy, Jerry, and we have four children, 7 grand children and 5 great grand children.  Spending time with my little ones (7 are under 7) brings us great joy and laughter.  Holidays have a special meaning to me, as this is a special time to share in our love for each other.  My other love with my family is COOKING!  I am a Foodnetwork lover, recipe collector and I am always working to create outstanding meals and gourmet buffets for my family.  My biggest challenge in my cooking is how to create these wonderful meals with so many picky eaters.  So far, I have had little or no complaints.  Do you have a recipe that you would like to share with me?  Send it to my email!

My other challenge is making sure that every one of of my clients is very satisfied after they accomplish their goals; whether it is selling a property or buying a new home.  I hope that each of them has felt my honesty and integrity in the transaction and will refer others to me.  A great majority of my business over the last 19 years has been by referral and local recognition in my community.  I have tried to play an active role in the the last 7 years that we have lived in the small town of Osakis, MN.  When I meet a client, we must first set down and put a solid plan together to figure out exactly what they are trying to accomplish.  Sometimes it is as easy as list their home and get a sign in the yard or show them a house they saw via my website and write an offer.  However, most of the time it is really taking the time to understand and listen to their goals, put a solid plan in place, and then take the steps to getting the job done. 

I also have found a great love of social networking expecially with Active Rain and now Facebook.  It is wonderful to find agents who look me up and refer their clients to me so that they know they get exceptional care and follow-up.  Send yours my way!  Also, if you have anyone for NW Arkansas, I have an awesome connection there for you as well.

I look forward to hearing from your, your friends, relatives or anyone else that you know that could use my expertise to help them obtain their goals of a home getting sold or buying a new one!
