Originally from Madison, WI, William Schmidt is a man of many experiences, having lived and worked all across the country. William is a third-generation real estate agent following in the footsteps of his grandfather, mother, aunt, uncle, and sister. William credits his upbringing attending open houses and the invaluable lessons passed on from his mother for his passion for real estate. His varied work experience has led him to travel the country pursuing creative endeavors and extreme sports in Flyboarding and ultimately finding fulfillment in real estate where he held a top ranking at the #1 sales office in Nashville.
Currently a resident of the West Village, William's first love affair with NYC began at age 18 after moving cross-country to pursue a career in the performing arts. An artistic shift to directing led William to Los Angeles, where he honed his videography and production skills. William’s director's experience enables him to organize teams with ease and project calm leadership through any stressful situation. William says he has always been lucky enough to be with his clients on the best day of their life, and their joy in closing a deal is what keeps him going.
Watching and predicting the real estate market, William is always looking for the next up and coming neighborhood. Imagination is critical, he says, when looking for what is coming down the pipeline. Whether that's a neighborhood or a specific home, looking beyond the surface and picturing a lifestyle is a skill William credits to his realtor mother. It's not just about his own vision, though. William says his greatest strength is being able to listen to his clients and breakdown precisely what they are looking for and infusing it with his expertise and experience.
William spends his spare time pursuing a myriad of hobbies, from 3D design and printing to writing music, and jet skiing.
If I could give William 10 stars, I would! He helped me (a first-time homebuyer) purchase my co-op from start to finish and was so knowledgeable, professional, and friendly the whole time. William made a long, complicated process so much easier and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch broker!!Melissa G.
My partner and I were first home buyers and William helped us purchase the absolute best place for us earlier this year. He was so patient and knowledgeable - he showed us many places, answering all of our questions and hand-holding us every step of the way. We randomly connected with him through a listing and because he is very personable and didn't feel sale-sy we only wanted to work with him. I truly felt that he wanted to help us find the perfect place for us, and he did. Couldn't recommend him enough!Erin B.
