Michael Schmidt, Principal Broker, GRI
office: 503-873-3545 ext 314
Born and raised in Silverton, I worked in the family vineyard and winery business until 1991. After graduating from Silverton Union High School in 1990, I attended Chemeketa Community College for 2 years studying real estate and other various classes. A graduate of the Norm Webb Real Estate School, I have been licensed for 20 years and a Broker with Silverton Realty since 1999. In 2003 I completed additional education in real estate and earned my GRI designation. In 2009 I completed specific education and earned the NAR’s Green Designation. In 2017; I completed additional education, passed my state and national tests, to earn my Principal Brokers license. I’m a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Oregon Association of Realtors, the Green Resource Council, the Northwest Association of Realtors, Portland Multiple Listing Service, and the Willamette Valley Multiple Listing Service.
Over the past 28 years while working in Silverton and the surrounding areas I have met and worked with several of the local builders. I am also a licensed and bonded General Contractor. I have experience with residential remodeling and new construction although, now my primary focus is real estate sales. In 2010, I became a Certified Renovator to comply with the new EPA’s RR&P Rule. I have made several real estate investments in Silverton and have a commitment to the community as well as an interest in the policies of the local government. I feel my experience in real estate and construction along with my relationship with local builders, other Realtors, and City Staff compliment my knowledge of the area to provide top quality service.
Married in 1998, Leslie and I have renovated three older homes in Silverton. Our most current projects are Sage, age 15 and Gavin, age 12. We enjoy trips to Devil’s Lake on the coast, Central Oregon, and Klamath County.
