Ed Schmidt - Broker/Real Estate Professional
One of Lake of the Ozarks' top REALTOR and business men, Ed Schmidt, moved to the Lake in June of 1996. His diverse background and numerous business combined with his personal connections in the Lake area, make Ed one of the most sought after agents for buyers and sellers. I understand the market from residential & condos to commercial & land. Understanding market trends and then adding the knowledge of the value of property is only part of the process. True success comes in the negotiation of the transaction between the buyer and seller by giving them all the real facts about their potential purchase or sale for them to make the best decision for themselves.
In partnering with Ryan Gattermeir and Conda Davidson, Ed Schmidt bridges a full service marketing/advertising company with two of the most respected and highest independent producing agents at the Lake. It was a huge risk, considering the housing market economy in 2008, but with proven experience from two of the best Realtors at the Lake of the Ozarks, paired the marketing and advertising expertise of Ed, a wonderful partnership had emerged, which formed Gattermeir Davidson Real Estate, which dominated the market through beginning of 2017.
In 2009 Gattermeir Davidson was named the fourth largest agency in both real estate boards at the Lake of the Ozarks. In 2010 they were named the Largest Independent/Non I Franchise Real Estate Company at the Lake. The Gattermeir Davidson team's aggressive marketing and internet presence has been influential source of their quick growth in the worst real estate economy in our lifetime. In 2010 and 2011, Gattermeir Davidson set records by being the 3rd largest company in The Bagnell Dam Association of Realtors. 2012 to 2016 this real estate company became #1 brokerage at the Lake, privately owned. Also, Ed was proud to have been selected Rookie of the Year by his peers in 2010 and assisted the Real Estate Board at the Lake of the Ozarks with advertising campaign in 2008-09.
For past years Ed Schmidt along with his partners hit new Real Estate heights with breaking over 100 million in total sales and enjoyed being at the Top of the Market. Plus, Schmidt and Associates, LCC Marketing firm has grown and expand to handle over 15 business throughout the state and 7 major events for the entire community as well. The growth through tough market conditions shows the dedication of Ed Schmidt to perform on multitude of levels with his Real Estate company and the Premier marketing firm.
Things never stay the same in business, you either learn to ride the wave or get tossed in turned about in the white water. In 2017 Ed, Ryan and Conda decided to shake up the Real estate world and break up the Premier Boutique brokerage at the Lake to give everyone the opportunity to join the Only Agent Owned National Brokerage in our market, eXp Realty.
