Douglas Schmidt - REALTY EXECUTIVES Boston West

 


Doug Schmidt is a Long Island boy through and through. Yes, he is a loyal

life-long Yankees and (no matter how much they lose) Jets fan! He worked in the apparel industry for close to 20 years after attending Wagner College. He worked for Reebok and traveled around the World to places such as China, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Mexico, and India. Prior to his full-time real estate career, Doug owned a successful chain of dry cleaning stores in Massachusetts.

 

He believes he is the luckiest man in the world because he married "the woman of my dreams" and loves his work of getting people in the home of their dreams! Doug is a beloved father of five children who keep him on his toes. In 2006, his youngest daughter at the time Sophia, who had Down syndrome died suddenly. In her memory, Doug and Maria support many wonderful organizations that help people living with special needs. He believes they have much to teach all of us! Inspired by Sophia's death, he and Maria went down to New Orleans with Sherborn's Unitarian Church to help rebuild after Katrina hit and our government abandoned the people there. They are planning to go back because there is still a lot of work there that needs to be done.

 

For many years he has coached local youth teams in soccer, baseball, lacrosse and football. Currently, Doug is the co-chairperson for the Habitat for Humanity project that is in the fund raising stages and will be under construction shortly.

 

At Realty Executives, Doug was named to the Top 20 Agents Dream Team for two years in a row.

 

Doug and real estate are a great mix! He loves negotiating the best deal for his clients,even if they are Red Sox fans!
