A Vision of Quality
When Alan Schmidt, Sr. was nine years old, he told his father, Gerhard, that he wanted to be a professional baseball player. “That’s probably not going to happen,” said Gerhard, who had been building homes since 1954. “So I will teach you how to be a builder.”
Gerhard taught, and Alan learned — so much so that he was able to build his first house in 1974, just one year after he graduated high school. That first home sowed the seeds for Schmidt Builders, a company that Alan started with his wife, Judy, based on the simple idea that you should do what you say you are going to do. Originally, that meant he did all the work himself, from framing to hanging drywall to installing flooring. But Alan always had a vision to scale the business — while still keeping the same degree of quality and personalized service. These days, we are truly a generational operation: Alan Schmidt, Jr. began working with the company when he was in junior high, and he now runs the West Chester office.
Through the years, we’ve won several awards and been featured in prestigious home shows. But the thing we’re most proud of is that we’ve never missed a closing date. The Schmidt word means something: Alan, Sr. learned this from Gerhard, and in turn taught it to Alan, Jr. — and it has filtered down to every Schmidt employee.
Bringing WOW Moments to Buyers
It seems that building is just in our blood — and while technology, trends, and floorplans may have changed, what we promise hasn’t: a stunning, solidly-built home, backed up with unmatched customer service and guaranteed by our word. A Schmidt choice is a choice about quality.
Schmidt homes of today are designed for what modern homebuyers most want: great amenities, superior craftsmanship, a smooth and efficient process, and the ability to customize floorplans — all in beautiful neighborhoods in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton area. We also build in Northern Kentucky, operating as Alan Schmidt Construction.
Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop once we hand over the keys. We stand behind our product for the long haul. It doesn’t matter how many years have passed: when you call Schmidt with a question or an issue, we always do our best to find answer.
A house is a vehicle for dreams. So when you build one, it should be truly worthy of those dreams. Schmidt Builders is here to make sure that happens.
