If you are looking for a real estate agent that can get the job done, then Lee is your realtor. I have had him sell three homes for me in the last few years and most took two weeks or less. He is easy to work with, professional and a concerning person. He takes care of it all: signs, photos, video of home, an expert in the real estate world, great guy and a true friend. Oh, did I mention the last house only took a weekend? We were done with another smooth deal.
Poul N March 2021
We have used Lee services for buying/selling our homes over the last several years. Lee is very professional and has great integrity. He’s knowledgeable, attentive, and communicates very well through the process. Never any surprises.
We highly recommend his services. You won’t be sorry.

"Lee Schmidt is a miracle worker! Selling a commercial property like mine, a 2-parcel pair of San Jose fourplexes, in a Covid market dealing with all the challenges of California’s rent collection rules, seem like it was not possible. Not only was the impossible possible, Lee was able to help our Buyer understand the value of our property and our agreed upon sales price left us thrilled! Lee navigated complex transaction issues and our property closed escrow just 5 months after listing it! If you need someone to sell your property with experience and skills to close a deal that makes you smile, Lee Schmidt at Realty World-South County should be your next call!"
Evelyn and Robert M March 2021
Dear Future Clients, After meeting with several real estate agents, & a sleepless night, we contacted Lee Schmidt at the recommendation of our neighbors, whose home he had recently sold. Halfway through our consultation, we were so impressed that we immediately signed Lee as our agent. Best decision ever. One week later, we left on vacation – yes, we were that confident in Lee’s expertise – all inspections completed, sign on front lawn, photos & virtual video posted, & our home listed on the MLS! We found Lee to be a man of his word, keeping every commitment & responding to our many questions in a timely manner (usually in 5 minutes or less!). He was so easy to work with, the perfect combination of professionalism, warmth, care, & concern. He was thorough & efficient, often anticipating our needs & offering solutions before we asked! Lee’s attention to detail, from his initial suggestions to prepare our home for market, through the sale, & closing of escrow, was impeccable! Lee sold our home in record time, in the middle of a pandemic, for more than we could have dreamed, & considerably surpassing the asking price! He went above & beyond, in every aspect, exceeding all our expectations. Under the expert guidance of Lee Schmidt, everything concerning the sale of our home, from start to finish, was smooth as glass. There literally were no missteps, oversights, or glitches. Mark & I could not be more pleased with our experience, & would, without reservation, unequivocally, recommend Lee to represent you as your Real Estate Agent, whether selling your current or buying your next home. Sincerely,
Mark & Dottie S Jan 2021
“Austin is a fantastic realtor! He told us from day one that he wouldn’t let us settle and I am so grateful for that. In a high demand market we became tempted to make potential offers on houses that didn’t check all of our boxes, but Austin reminded us that we shouldn’t settle and would continue to dedicate his time to find our forever home. Not too long after looking we found our forever home! It wasn’t the highest offer, and were competing against 10 other offers! But because of how strategically written our offer was, we ended up getting the house. All thanks to Austin! He not only listened to our needs and our wants (no matter how many we had), but was able to translate the list of items we were looking for into something that would actually work for our family. Austin is a genuine guy and cares deeply about all of his clients. He won’t let you settle, and will do everything he can to make sure it’s the best offer to find your forever home!”
Michael & Kaitlin Nov 2020
“Austin helped me through the whole process of buying my home from beginning to end. From looking up homes to look at all the way to the final paper work. He was very responsive to any question I had and always followed back up with me which I appreciated.”
Austin C October 2020
“Austin helped my husband and I find a cabin over 3 hours away. He traveled up there to helps us find our perfect place and continued to make this trip through inspections and when we received our keys to take ownership. He was on top of every aspect of the sale/ purchase and provided great communication and set expectations. I can honestly say he is the best agent I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs.”
Ted & Lisa P July 2020
“Austin did a wonderful job selling our first home. We needed to sell quickly and as painlessly as possible. We had a strict timeline to follow. We asked if it was possible and Austin assured us we would sell quickly. He suggested some small improvements that made a big impact in showing our home. We put our home on the market and we had a buyer within the week. Austin is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home hassle-free.”
Nathan & Bonnie S July 2020
"In the home buying process, the most valuable asset you can have is a knowledgeable and transparent agent. Lee Schmidt and his team are the epitome of knowledgeable and transparent. This is the second time my husband and I used Realty World South County (buying our second home), and the process was made so much easier with Lee as our partner in it. We never felt pressured to purchase a particular house, and we ended up finding our dream home. On both our first and second home, Lee made sure to explain all terminology and the pros and cons of all decisions. Where something would benefit us, he would explain why, but let us know it was our decision. He also saved us a ton of money by catching clerical errors from another company that overstated fees. We would have never caught that, but we were relieved he did. Lee is also very clear about what you need to do to get the best out of a situation. He also represented us in the sale of our first home in order to purchase our second. The walkthrough in order to get the house prepared was thorough and effective. We followed his guidance on how to stage the house for showings, and it WORKED. Our house sold fast and at a great price. One last thing to note - Lee is accessible. There are some agents out there that are hard to get ahold of - not Lee. We communicated via phone, text, and email, and he would respond on each in a very reasonable amount of time. We STRONGLY recommend partnering with Lee Schmidt and the Realty World South County team. Heed the advice, and you will not regret purchasing or selling your home with them."
Laurie A October 2020
"Lee Schmidt is by far the best agent I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve worked with 4. He always had our best interest in mind and communicated every detail necessary to make the transaction happen. Even after the house closed escrow, he is still working for me diligently on a situation that arose because of a mistake that I made. Most importantly though, after this transaction, he is likely the most experienced agent in the Bay Area when it comes to helping you transfer your solar contract to the new buyers, especially when it comes to dealing with Tesla and their lack of customer care. He already knew Tesla would be difficult so he started the paperwork process well before we even put the home on the market. If you have a solar contract, or you just want the best overall agent, I would use Lee without a doubt. Thanks for everything Lee. You’re the best."
Brian T September 2020
"My wife and I had a great experience with Lee and would highly recommend him. When we were looking for a home, we didn’t realize what kind of learning experience it be. Lee graciously walked us through everything. Took calls at odd hours and provide great advice. He really helped us understand a lot. He was very present and active in our purchase. Really enjoyed him as our real estate agent.
Josh T August 2020
"Angelo, thank you for your outstanding real estate service. I appreciate your commitment and high level of professionalism for the real estate market. You showcased our home properly to make it more marketable and developed a creative MLS listing to attract the right buyers. Your tenacity, work ethic, and attention to detail, will ensure your clients get the best price for their property. Our home was priced right and sold over the listing price. Thanks again for your great services Angelo.
Eric & Constance T July 2020
"So difficult to choose words that encompass what an amazing job Lee did. Simply put, Lee made us feel like family. There wasn't a single moment when I felt that his advice and guidance was anything other than what he would have given to his own family. That meant so much to us, as real estate is not our expertise, and there was an array of questions we needed help answering and many we didn't even know to ask. His accessibility, punctuality and knowledge level far exceeded our prior experiences in this industry and what we've come to expect in this era of customer service. He is honest and trustworthy. He went above and beyond walking us through the steps of prepping and selling our house as well as the finer points of signing on our new home. Again, I don't know what else captures our experience better than to say it was like having a caring father by our side, who truly represented our best interests, and worked tirelessly to help us find our dream home. Thank you Lee! What a blessing it has been to know you and work with you. Josh and Heather "
Josh and Heather C July 2020
"On April 1, in the midst of shutdowns, uncertainty and market instability, I did the most logical thing and accepted a job transfer out of the Bay Area. Our Morgan Hill home was the first home that my wife and I had purchased, and after 15 memorable years, we were now faced with selling it. We contacted Lee through a family member’s recommendation. From day 1, Lee never rushed us or pressured us into selling. When we sent him our timeline, he stuck to deadlines and answered all of our questions and concerns along the way. His market estimate was consistent with the appraisal and his photographer really showcased our home. At times, we (me) were very anxious and nervous about being able to sell our home. Lee was always reassuring and confident and in 9 days, our home sold for top dollar with multiple offers! Thank you, Lee, for sharing your knowledge and working tirelessly on our behalf!"
Joshua K July 2020
"I would highly recommend Lee Schmidt. We sold our home with Lee, he was upfront with the realities of the neighborhood sales in our area. He then began to give us advice on how to get our home ready to sell so we could get the best price. Then he watched the comps in our area, gave us a number and we sold our home in 2 days for more than we were expecting. He is diligent, keeps you informed, and works for and with you during the bumps that occur. We have had two other real estate agents in our past, Lee Schmidt acceded them by far. "
Mitchell T July 2020
"My husband and I have known Austin for several years since he grew up in the same area where we lived for 29 years. We have always been impressed by Austin as a person, but seeing him in action as a real estate agent opened our eyes, especially now during the Covid-19 pandemic. We moved out of our San Jose home in February shortly before the Shelter in Place status took place. Austin was literally our eyes and ears for us during the time our home was up for sale. He handled the open house and bid offers seamlessly, along with the necessary closing documents for the title company. Austin was exemplary about staying in contact with us relating to the progress of the sale and reassuring us he was staying on top of issues that needed to be addressed and completed. I would highly recommend Austin as a real estate agent since he has the 3 P's to get the job done.....promptness, persistent and professional"
Dennis and Claudia M April 2020
“Our home sale in Dec 2019 marked the third time we have gone to Lee for help in buying / selling a home. He has always put our best interest at heart and is not driven by maximizing the commission he will earn on any given purchase / sale. Lee has made himself available for questions / concerns 7 days a week and he is happy to take the time to explain some of the more confusing parts of the home buying process. Lee has earned a client for life; we would highly recommend to friends & family without hesitation.”
Scott M December 2019
I had a great experience with Austin while purchasing my condo. He made the whole process go very smoothly, and always took my interests into consideration. Whenever there was obstacle during the process, he was able to resolve it to my satisfaction. He was very responsive to texts, calls and emails, and I was able to rely on him as an advisor as he was able to answer all of my questions as a first time homebuyer. I came to appreciate his diligence even more when a colleague of mine was going through the home buying process and did not receive nearly the same level of professionalism or hard work that Austin provided me!
Scott M January 2020
Austin was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. He had good market data and provided good guidance to keep us informed during the process of purchasing the home. We will definitely use him again in the future!
Rob V October 2019
Amazing! I came to Austin after my agent was not really helping me. I was doing all the work to find a house. I found Austin and after that, my house hunting was breeze. He brought many options to the table and was always a call/text/email away. Austin always responded right away, made meetings happen, and provided above and beyond service (helping sellers pack) to make sure we got into the house on time! If it were not for him, we would not have found our first family home. I truly recommend him, and have already given his name to others. We will definitely be working with him again down the road!
Janelle G October 2018
Austin helped us buy our first house in the SJ area. Negotiations went quick and soon we were scheduling appraisal and inspections. He was always responsive and did his best to accommodate what we wanted. He even helped arrange sign offs with the neighbors after closing, for the fumigation. Austin did a great job, is a great guy, and we would definitely do more work with him in the future!
Shang T August 2019
Selling our home was much more stressful then I anticipated but Cindy was there for every call, every step, every question & made it a smooth and easy experience. She was a wonderful person to have on our team. Thank you, Cindy!!
Theresa October 2019
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AUSTIN SIMON!
Austin was simply INCREDIBLE and provided over the top customer service for my husband and I. As First Time Home Buyers, we had many questions and concerns and Austin was always quick to answer them professionally and in a timely manner. He reassured us throughout the whole process. His confidence and knowledge gave us comfort and peace of mind! Our transaction went so smooth because of his communication and passion to help us achieve our goal! He went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. We are so grateful for him and so pleased to see his dedication to help make others dreams come true! Thank you again Austin!
Aisha S October 2018
Thank you so much Austin! Selling for the first time was a scary process for us but with your patience and knowledge of all aspects of real estate helped us immensely. You always had time to answer any questions and or clarify them so that we truly understood. All the paperwork was explained thoroughly before we signed them. Your excellent advice on preparing the property for sale was very helpful. We will forever be grateful for the guidance you provided in making smart decisions! We would definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for an agent!
Juan and Celia R July 2018
“We have known Lee Schmidt since 2011 and he is the only one I will call for real estate. He helped us with the purchase of our primary home and investment properties. Lee will give you great suggestions according to your liking and financial situation. He is honest, straightforward, organized, punctual, and well informed. “
Anil October 2019
“Lee had great ideas and staging resources to market our property effectively and achieve top dollar in the sale. From time of listing to close of escrow was just a matter of weeks. I’ve sold many properties over the years… This was one of the simplest, best managed transactions I’ve ever dealt with. Kudos to Lee and his Realty World – South County team! “
Bill B September 2019
“Lee was very professional and got things done in a timely manner. He kept us up to date on any new offers and gave good advice on which offer was the right one for us. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone buying or selling a property.”
Tom R. June 2019
“Cindy was absolutely wonderful to work with! We were referred to her and she did not disappoint. Her and her team made the whole home buying process a breeze and taught me my fiancé a thing or two as well seeing as how we are first-type home buyers. She was very knowledgeable and patient with us since we had a ton of questions. We felt nothing but confident in her ability to get the job done. I’ll recommend Cindy to anyone ready to buy or sell!”
Kaitlyn K June 2019
“I have had two homes sold through Lee Schmidt and both transactions went smoothly. He’s the best real estate agent, as he took care of my interests. It was a pleasure doing business with him. Very knowledgeable about pricing and he knows the area well, you can’t go wrong with Lee. He has become a good friend and I would recommend him to anyone needing to sell or buy real estate. “
Poul N June 2019

“Cindy Dalla did an outstanding job for us with listing and selling our home in Gilroy. She went up and beyond with her service. She provided insight and suggestions with how we could achieve our goal of getting top dollar with our sale. She helped us paint, clean and sell the furniture in the house. She made the process a lot easier and we will utilize her services again when needed. I would highly recommend Cindy! Thanks Cindy! You were great!”

Kevin K December 2018

Yuvaraj T March 2018
” I (we) have known Cindy for some time and finally had a reason to use her services. And we have not been disappointed. Cindy is tenacious when it comes to her business and her customers. A great detail person. Honest and trustworthy. she will not let you down. Her attention to detail could annoy a person who is not detail oriented but we liked that in her. Our home sold for the asking price in less than a month. we couldn’t be more pleased.”
Kathi & Jim July 2018

“Lee was recommended to us by a friend and coworker. Lee was very personable and approachable from the beginning and drove home the point that selling a home is a stressful time but his job was to make it as stress free as he could. Boy did he live up to that promise. Lee took care of all the background paperwork and worked tirelessly to make sure we understood the process and our needs were taken care of. Lee has a phenomenal grasp of the south county real estate market and an excellent working relationship with other realtors to get the best deal possible. Would definitely recommend Lee to anyone and will continue to use him as a valuable resource for home projects to come!”
Dan S June 2018

I ask a lot of questions and he was very patient with me and willing to explain things in detail each and every time I would ask. He made himself available when we would ask for last minute requests. His knowledge and experience made us comfortable with the buying and selling process. He genuinely cares about his clients and that is why we recommend Lee and would definitely ask for his help with any future buying and selling needs. Thanks Lee!”
Kristy D January 2018
“Lee is simply the best of the best. My particular purchasing situation was very unique in its nature, but Lee made it happened. He was punctual, consistent, and overwhelmingly supportive in every way. Lee has a way of making a very complicated process simple. In football terms, Lee is the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time). I was honored to work with him and I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
When we started looking to selling our home, we were told it was probably going to sell for around 850,000. We met with Lee, he gave us a list of recommendations for improvements that we could make, and even suggested vendors we could work with. In just a matter of weeks our home looked like a model home. It had literally never looked better. Plus, the staging and photography teams he uses are top notch. Within a couple of weeks, we had multiple offers and sold for over ask at 950,000. The deal was quick, painless, and we were in our new home in less than 30 days. If that’s not what you’re looking for in a broker – I don’t know what is. Thanks, Lee, you’re the best! “
Justin and Erica J.
“Cindy is not only extremely knowledgeable about the Bay Area but knows the great area’s and not so great area’s where you may be looking. She will be upfront and honest with you. She will call you and text you to communicate, so that you will never be alone in this venture. She will go along with you in the process from beginning to end, all the way. “
|“This is long overdue thank you from Carol and I for all your help in quickly selling our home in Morgan Hill CA. You have been incredibly gracious to us through the process and we are grateful for your kindness, understanding, patience and expertise. The experience at each phase of the sales effort was great, such as useful insights on pre-listing staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a great degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace. Thanks again for all you’ve done for us. Best regards, Iraj and Carol “|
My wife and I were (notice I said were) first time home buyers in need of some guidance for our first purchase. We were fortunate to find Lee, whom actually worked with a few of my coworkers that had nothing but fantastic things to say. Lee helped us understand the process, find a home, and work with us even past the purchase of our house. I never felt uninformed and he never let me down with getting the little things done. Once we are willing to sell, I have no doubt we will work with Lee again.
“I was very pleased to have Lee Schmidt as my realtor. He was very timely with all events and helped follow a challenging timeline to close escrow before I left for vacation. We had many factors impacting the sale and he handled them all and kept me updated quickly. He worked well with the title company making my paperwork very fast and easy. He also worked well with the other realtor getting the closing date adjusted and everything quickly finalized. Thank you Lee.”

LEE SCHMIDT is the best real estate agent who takes care of all your buy/sale property activities from start to end through out the process.
|“I needed to purchase a commercial property. I hired Lee as my agent. He was a pleasure to interact with. He was extremely courteous, knowledgeable and professional. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a real estate professional to guide them on their next purchase or sale transaction. “|
Thanks so much for all of your help. We couldn’t have done it without you! My mom was looking to sell her house of 25 years and downsize to an apartment. We were overwhelmed with the prospect of cleaning out and editing her things and getting the property ready to be listed, particularly as we live out of state. Your professionalism and patience in explaining all aspects of the process was greatly appreciated. Your team was extremely helpful in assisting my mom with organizing and getting the house ready for sale, all at a pace that was comfortable for her. Your recommendations for contractors for the various projects were reasonably priced, and the projects were all completed in a timely manner. Importantly my mom’s house sold for the asking price! Thanks again Lee. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who’s looking for a realtor in the area!
Cindy was a pleasure to work with. She was always available when we had questions or concerns . Cindy is very professional and courteous but will fight and go to bat for you when it comes down to business. She got us 10k over asking price. My husband and I really enjoyed working with Cindy and would highly recommend her to sell your home.
I wanted to share with everyone how great experience I just enjoyed in working with Lee as he helped finalized the short sale of my home. If it wasn’t for his vast knowledge & experience in the real estate business and his tenacious desire to finish what we started, I probably would have lost my home to foreclosure. There is no question that Lee is the best in what he does and my experience with working with him not only left me feeling like a valued client but a friend too. Lee should be the first person you call for any real estate needs you have!!
“We used Patrick for buying our house in Morgan Hill and for selling my house in San Jose. For the first transaction, he ably represented both buyer and seller; we had no concerns whatsoever about a conflict of interest. In both transactions he stayed on top of the progress of the marketing and the escrow period, and always in a friendly, calm, and professional manner. I would recommend him highly.”
“As a first time home buyer, I was completely overwhelmed. Lee was absolutely amazing. I had a lot of questions, thought some may have seemed silly to most, but Lee was patient with me and explained all details. I felt respected. He gave experienced advice and always kept me in “the know.” He showed me homes that he knew would work for me. He made the process fun, and worked so hard to get all the details sorted. He worked diligently to make my dreams become a reality. I would definitely recommend Lee Schmidt to help you in your house hunting.”
Lee helped make the selling of my house as smooth as I could have possibly conceived. I appreciated the numerous resources he had, from home update suggestions to vendors (I even hired his very reasonably-priced landscape guys). If you engage in something you’re unfamiliar with, always get the assistance of a pro–which is who Lee is. My house sold for above asking price. I highly recommend Lee.
We highly recommend Patrick Bedley for any real estate transaction. We thank Patrick for a fantastic job he successfully reached in selling our home. His hard work and dedication proved successful. He found right client for our property in a tough market and worked hard to negotiate a contract to purchase another property. Patrick is an agent to be valued. We are extremely thankful with the manner Patrick engineered the entire process of initialing the contract, advertising the property through a virtual slide show, via internet, news ads, fliers, giving up weekends for numerous showings, and multiple listings. Patrick gave us suggestions for preparing the house for showing and pricing the house. His patience, professionalism, expertise of the real estate business and courtesy are very impressive. Patrick’s attitude and willing disposition greatly helped us through the process even during hard times. Phone calls and questions are always answered promptly. Most of all we greatly appreciate the personal care we received.
Bob & Joanne
Cindy Dalla is extremely knowledgeable and worked hard to help me sell my condominium. She was always available to answer questions and made the whole process easy and worry free.
“Lee was referred by a neighbor who sold their house through him. I was VERY glad i took the recommendation. Lee is the best! He worked hard to get our house perfect for sale. He made the process super easy, and FAST! Best of all we got much more than we were asking on the house! Lee is highly recommended if you want speed, efficiency and honesty. “
“I was a first time home buyer and uneducated to a lot of facets of the process. Angelo was easy to work with , very knowledgeable and made the buying process smooth, while being extremely prompt with return calls. He went above and beyond to keep the deal moving and worked very hard at making the deal succeed. 10 out of 10. I would highly recommend working with Angelo.”
Lee and his team did an excellent job in selling our home in Santa Clara. Lee was able to get the highest price in our community by $100,000 even though we had the smallest house. He walked us through the steps in the sale and made sure we understood all of the aspects. He also recommended companies to do work on our house to get it ready for a sale. We are thrilled with the result and would highly recommend Lee to anyone selling or thinking of selling their home!
Eric and Karen M.
“My wife Rebecca and I have found Cindy Dalla to be the most comprehensive realtors we had ever met. She indeed went above and beyond what most realtors would do for their clients. Even tirelessly holding a beautiful open house to make sure we got the best offer out there. Cindy was always concerned for our loan and never dropped the ball. More importantly she is a good communicator and kept us in the loop through the entire process of selling and purchasing a new home. In fact she went the extra mile with her finance degree and got involved especially when the going got stressful! Cindy was in it to produce and follow thorough on our loan every step of the way! We highly recommend her as a realtor because her ultimate goal was putting our needs and wants first. If you are looking for a Realtor with a personal touch that gets the job done, Cindy Dalla is the realtor for you. ”
“We decided to put our home up for sale and was referred to Lee by our daughter who had just bought a home from him, and by a good family friend who has known Lee for many years. They highly recommended him so we set up a time to meet with him and have him check out the house which needed a lot of love. He gave us some great suggestions on fixing it up to get more money for it and we are so happy we listened to him! We listed the house for $585K and accepted an offer for $635K!!! Took just about 6 weeks for everything to be settled and to have cash in hand. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to go with Lee as our agent and we absolutely recommend him too!”
“The minute she started to work for me, I knew I had chosen the right person. Cindy’s professionalism, enthusiasm and efficiency throughout the entire real estate transition surprised me every day. I was under the pressure of selling the house, moving to another state, and yet still working. With Cindy’s help everything was much easier. I recommend her as a best choice if you are going to sell your house. “
” Cindy has professional and friendly service. I like her and am happy to deal with her.”
“I am pleased to recommend Cindy Dalla. She was our real estate agent when she sold our condo. She was very thorough and so personable. Cindy explained every step of the process and made sure everything went smoothly and quickly. I would certainly ask Cindy to represent us again if the need ever arises. She is terrific!”
Cindy Dalla is the ultimate professional in real estate and mortgages. I was recently involved in the sale of my mother’s home of 30 years. My mother was quite elderly and had serious health problems. The decision for her to sell her home was difficult for her. We had many questions and concerns. What was the home’s value? How long might it take to sell? It would take too long to list every question!
Cindy stepped in and was able to clarify the ‘big picture’ for us. We talked about many factors that determine a property’s value. We discussed the current market environment. We talked about estimated fees and costs. Cindy explained everything to our satisfaction, and when escrow closed there were no surprises.
Cindy works tirelessly for her clients, whether its explaining documents, questions about inspections and appraisals, OR rolling up her sleeves and helping people clear out, clean out, stage to show the home to it’s best advantage – you could not ask for a better professional to represent you! Cindy was there EVERY step of the way, available in person or by phone whenever I needed something.
This was a very difficult time, and I couldn’t have gotten through this without Cindy. She made it as easy as it could be, and could be counted on no matter what. If I decide to sell my home, guess who I will call?
Awesome job, excellent service. Lee Schmidt always answers his phone or will call you right back. He will work hard to sell your house. I would recommend him as one top realtor. Everything went so smooth. He is a honest realtor and I appreciate the help he gave me.
thanks Lee your friend Poul N.
“Angelo is truly professional, skillful and a pleasure to do business with. He helped us sell our home, and I can’t imagine any one doing a better job than he did. He kept us closely informed, gave us great ideas for staging the house, helped us with details, and gave us intelligent advice. He was consistently responsive. I highly recommend him.”
Cindy did a tremendous job helping us sell our home and find our new home. She went the extra mile from helping us stage the home to cleaning up on move out day. Her experience was on full display and it definitely made the process easier for us. We highly recommend Cindy and would definitely use her again (had she not helped us find our “final” home)!
Lee put our house on the market the last week in April, open house on mothers day, His method of marketing was brilliant! We were in contract by Tuesday evening. If Lee were a baseball player, he would be the ace pitcher with a 0.01 era! I have to make it clear, a leader is only as good as the team behind him. Angelo did an excellent job with the open house, and the office team also did a great job with the paper work.Did I mention Lee is not only a starter, he’s a closer too! In the realty game he is the best there is! He also set us up with an excellent realtor to buy our new home, which we love! Your the BEST Lee!! Thank You Keven and Kathy White.

“Lee’s professionalism, work ethic and knowledge were outstanding. He was courteous, accommodating and was always available to answer my questions. His knowledge and experience says it all. I would highly recommend Lee. “
“Wow ,Lee is such a remarkable person. Lee has done SOOOO much for me in every way he could to assist us in searching, discussing and finding our dream home. I couldn’t be more happy with Lee and all he has done for us during the entire process of finding a home and buying it. I must say if anyone needs help buying or selling a home, I believe you can’t find anyone that can match Lee’s experience, qualification, and true sincere effort in making you feel comfortable,confident and elated when working with Lee and get the results you really need. Thank you so much Lee for all you have done for Chrissie and Me in purchasing our new home and the whole process of doing that!!!!!!!”
I would highly recommend Angelo Gorgulho to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. If you want a realtor that won’t leave anything out, this is your guy! I understand some people want to be political when they hire a realtor, I just want the facts. I got just want I asked for. He’s a great person going up to bat for you, and a very hard worker. Thanks again for our beautiful house Angelo!
I would recommend Lee if you are looking to buy or sell your home, he is very knowledgeable and understands your needs. Lee made my buying and selling process smooth and seamless. His advice was very valuable as he made recommendations that made a huge impact when it comes to selling my house. Lee demonstrates to care so much about your happiness that he makes your house a real home! After moving he is still following up to make sure I am happy! Thank you Lee, I am very happy in my new home!
Good Morning Cindy,
I would like to extend my appreciation and Thank You for all hard work, dedication and guidance in the sale of our home!
It’s always difficult to close chapters of our life and Hollister represents our most important one, the birth of Christopher and Jaqueline. I appreciate the care and understanding you provided Gloria during the, thankfully, quick listing, sale and closing.
All My Best!
“Angelo, we went from thinking we’d have to pay someone to buy the house, to you far exceeding our expectations in price, transaction and timeline!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all your hard work and above and beyond efforts to make this a successful transaction.
YOU ROCK !!! “
Patrick and Annalisa W
“I am pleased to recommend Patrick Bedley. He has done a fantastic job in marketing, and providing several open houses and getting a fair market price for our home. Patrick is a personal friend, who loves his work and is always conscientious about meeting our needs, even when he has had some very difficulty circumstances in his own personal life. We give him our highest recommendation because he is honest, and straightforward and just got the job done. I so value his commitment to his faith and relying on God’s grace to provide answers to the most difficult questions. Three cheers for a job well done.”
“Buying a house is painful task. And you really need someone, who is expert in realty, who is hard working and available for you 24/7 and who thinks like a family member for you. Thank god we found Angela who has all these qualities. She is not just an agent but the best teacher as well. We were in the process of buying our first house and as I look back now, I can’t imagine going through it without Angie. She does not just understand your needs but feels them and help you get exactly what you are looking for. I hope she can help more and more people the way she helped us. ”
“Excellent service! We’ve used plenty of realtors in the past, and Angelo knew our particular needs and worked hard to meet them. His honesty and communication skills helped speed things up. He’s not afraid to speak his mind, which he does so tastefully. We appreciate the help Angelo and will be happy to use you again.”
To Whom It May Concern,
I recently became a first time home owner and Patrick Bedley was my agent. Since day one, he made the process seamless and hassle free. He explained everything to me and set realistic expectations of how the process would look like and what to expect. I was very pleased with the level of service that Patrick provided during the very quick month process. I would be happy to recommend Patrick to my family and friends. He is very professional, courteous and efficient. Thank you Patrick for all your help and support during this great new journey!
It was a pleasure to have such a great agent, Angela Lazrovich, help us sell our house. She was willing to take the extra steps to sell our home fast. I consider her to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. She was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our house to attract buyers quickly, and her advice worked like a charm. We are pleased to recommend Angela Lazrovich to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents. If you want to discuss our experience in more detail please feel free to ask Angela for our number or email, we’d be thrilled to talk to you.
“Cindy is the kind of Real Estate person you want to have on your side. She’s highly energetic, creative, thoughtful, a great communicator but most of all…she’s got your back! She truly cares about her clients, and there is no limit to what she’ll do to ensure you get the right home. She’s got an eye for details, is super-knowledgable about her markets, knows all the other players (and some of them are real players in every sense of the word…watch out, unless Cindy is on your side) and she works her buns off. We went through several real estate people before we found Cindy, she’s the best! She showed us quite a few homes (we’re picky), and even made a few offers before finding success. She’s successfully found us and helped us negotiate our new home! I highly recommend that you get Cindy Dalla on your side!”
“Lee Schmidt has recently helped me sell my mobile home in Sunnyvale, CA. I have found Lee to be a reliable, trust-worthy professional with integrity, competence, high ethics, and one who does whatever it takes to get the job done right. He is also eager to adopt progressive work methods to continue to improve the efficiency of the sometimes tedious, time consuming, processes required in real estate. I have no reservation in recommending my friends and the people I know to entrust their realty needs to the good hands of Lee.”
Selling our home and understanding the process has never been easier! Angela Lazrovich went the extra mile! Besides being professional she was so flexible with our schedule and was always willing to meet us after working hours. I recommend Angela Lazrovich and her office personnel without reservations. I have plans to buy a home in a year or two and without a doubt I will be calling her.
“If you are purchasing a home in the area, you have to go with Lee Schmidt. He is BY FAR the best realtor I have ever dealt with. He has been in the business for a long time and knows the local market better than anyone. Lee definitely has his clients’ best interest in mind and was very patient with our family as we carefully selected the home that was right for us. He answered every question we had, addressed every concern, and was unbelievably prompt with his responses. Lee continued to take great care of us after the closing. When we discovered that not all the windows were double-paned (as advertised), Lee negotiated a deal with the sellers and their realtor to take care of it. All I had to do was pick a date for installation and Lee took care of everything else. His contractor did a great job and I paid NOTHING for the upgrade. I am amazed by Lee’s dedication, patience, professionalism, and honesty. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
Frank and Denise H.
“We had gone through the full gamut of realtors with disastrous results!! Then along comes Lee with Realty World to the rescue!! Destiny, he proved. He is extremely knowledgeable, fanatic with detail, articulate, caring and just darn good! He excelled at selling our unique country property. Much obliged, Rene and Sandy G.”
Rene and Sandy G.
“Lee was outstanding throughout the selling and buying process. He made himself available to field calls and emails every day of the week. Lee was able to answer our questions which gave us peace of mind as we navigated through our journey into our new home. We would highly recommend Lee to anybody who wants a knowledgable, caring and hard-working agent. “
Scott & Kayla M
“I have bought and sold real estate both for investment and for my residences in two states. Angelo was able to give me all the tools I need to make the right decisions. He knows the market well, and he is an excellent guide through the entire transaction. I trust his advice and would recommend him to anyone.”
“Cindy did an awesome job for us! She was caring, efficient, and very on top of the entire process. She even visited our home after hours when we had time-sensitive documents to sign. Cindy has great contacts in the industry for home inspection and other services. She already knew our loan banker because of her vast experience, and that made the process even easier. Amazingly, our purchase closed within 17 days! “
The Wilkinson Family
This review is long overdue. Angie helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first home together. We were her first home buyers since becoming an agent and she was awesome. She was always available to answer questions (because we sure had a TON!) and made it such an easy process. We had difficulties (not any reflection on our agent) from the sellers and Angie helped us through the whole process and reminded us that there was an end in sight and it would be worth it. She was right. Also, if she didn’t know the answer or wasn’t familiar with something in the process, she always asked and never told us an answer just because we wanted it. She is great to work with and will do her best to get you what you want. We have been in our house now 4 months since remodeling it and I am so thankful for Angie and Lee’s help in getting our home!
Lee helped us get our first home. As first time home buyers we did not have much knowledge about process and he helped us understand process very nicely and gave us valuable advice. He is very professional and patient and explained the process step by step whenever we had any doubts. We posted a message on his website and got a call in less than 15 minutes after the contact. After that it was a smooth process to buy our house.
We would highly recommend Lee without any reservation.

“Excellent communication, very straightforward, excellent expertise, indisputably THE real estate expert for South Bay Area. Worked with Lee on three deals. Lee understands the “standard” and the non-trivial situations. “
“Lee assisted in my purchase of a condo in Morgan Hill. I moved in last month and love it! Lee made my purchase of this home so much easier with all his support and all the extras that he did to make sure that I was satisified. I highly recommend Lee if you are looking to purchase a new home!”
“My wife and I were first time homeowners that had a limited timeframe to relocate from California to Texas. We researched, found Lee and immediately liked that he lived in, worked in and just really understood the town and market of Morgan Hill. We asked what we thought was the impossible, to sell our house in basically a month. He came to our house, toured it, gave advice including stop spending money to finish upgrading it, and asked us what we wanted for it. Within about three days, house was listed, and every weekend Lee was persistent in holding open houses looking for the right buyer for our townhome. Low and behold, 35 days after listing, Lee sold our house for close to $10k over list price. He saved me so much time, working with me over the phone and making documents electronic for processing when I couldn’t physically be there to sign. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone looking to sell or buy a house. I didn’t know Lee at all before, and now I highly trust him. “
Phil and Chelsea Y.
Angela is wonderful! She is extremely dedicated to making her clients home buying experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible. She never failed to answer the phone even when we called late in the evening and on weekends and was quick to answer any questions we had. Once we found the home we wanted she worked hard to make our dream a reality. We can’t thank her enough for all she has done for us and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home without any hesitation.
We can’t thank Angelo Gorgulho enough for the job he did for us. He sold our home in San Jose and found us a great house in Morgan Hill through a short sale, which he maneuvered through smoothly. He spent a lot of time guiding us through the process and had great knowledge of both markets and we were able to get a fantastic deal on both due to his hard work and expertise. The most impressive thing was that we were able to close both at the same time which made our lives so much easier. Thank you Angelo for your hard work and your attention to detail. We would not hesitate to strongly refer you to anyone we know.
Chris & Michelle K.
Angelo Provided excellent service going beyond what would be expected. He found us a home that was quite far from his home base, since my work as a Contractor is all over the bay area this allowed us to get a much nicer home than we would have been able to afford in Morgan Hill. Even when we were moving in to our new home the service did not end. WOW! I would refer him to anyone and will use him again in the future.
Roy and Katya M.
We sold our house through Cindy Dalla. She is very professional. We highly recommend her.
Cindy did an excellent job for my family both finding us the perfect home and also selling our home. The connections that she had in the South County region of the Bay Area were definitely a plus. Cindy has that energy that is just contagious and she makes things happen. I would definitely recommend Cindy Dally without hesitation.
We “accidentally” came across Lee a few months back. We had spoken with a few Realtors before him and had uneasy feelings about all of them. They were pushy, more concerned with their “sale numbers” than our feelings etc… Therefore, we put off the sale of our house for another year. There are many good Realtors out there, we just had not found one we were comfortable with. Then came Lee. (Sounds like a song!)
Not only was he knowledgeable but he was personable too. We also found out from inspectors in our area that Lee was highly thought of as an honest person with integrity. Yup, they were right. He helped us through a nerve wracking sale. We are now HAPPILY retired on the great sale he brokered for us.
John and Nancy R.
I would definitely recommend Lee Schmidt for your Real Estate needs. Lee was very helpful when he visited my home and proposed repairs/upgrades that were economical and made a significant impact in selling my home quickly. Whether you are looking to buy a home, or selling one, Lee Schmidt will be able to help you.
Lee is and experienced Realtor located in Morgan Hill and he has a thorough knowledge of the area. I will be using Lee Schmidt to help locate and inspect my next home in the Morgan Hill area.
It is my pleasure to recommend Patrick Bedley for your real estate needs. Patrick is a knowledgeable professional who made our recent purchase and sale a smooth and pleasant experience. His experience and grasp of the market helped us close both transactions in a short period of time. My wife and I were novices in the real estate market and relied Patrick’s experience to help us formulate a strategy to accomplish our dreams. He was always promptly responsive to our questions and needs, and more than helpful in every step of the process. In addition my wife and I both feel we have gained a friend.
Jerry and Virginia
My wife and I have known Patrick for almost five years now. When we first met at an open house in Morgan Hill we knew this is the realtor we wanted to be working with. At the time, we weren’t too serious about buying a home but I wanted to keep his contact information for when we were ready. We are so glad we did! He worked tirelessly showing us homes we were interested in. Patrick always listened to what our needs were and treated us like a good friend. He’s very personable, accommodating and easy to work with. Patrick’s professionalism made our home purchase smooth. We highly recommend him! Thank you again Patrick!
Matt and Winnie
I just wanted to let you know how happy we are in our new home! Also for us since it was our first home there was some anxiety getting into the market. You could not have been more helpful on all fronts working with us, the seller’s broker and our bank.
I know we could not have done it without you. Your vast knowledge of not just the area, but the market in general was invaluable.
Making sure we saw everything that was a good fit and steering us clear of ones that were not. As well as your excellent due diligence when we were set to put an offer in.
Your guidance and assurance all along the way made the biggest purchase of our lives as smooth and easy as possible!
We are so glad we did it and as I said couldn’t be happier.
As you say and you are so right “everyone is buying real estate you just might be buying it for someone else”.
Mike and Kat T.
We give Cindy a big two thumbs up! After 2 years of showing us numerous pices of properties, all in rural areas, we finally found the perfect property. Because the property was actually two separate parcel, there was an easement and surveys that needed to be handled by someone knowledgeable. We are so thankful we had Cindy. She did an excellent job. She is extremely thorough, addressing all our concerns, putting us at ease, and keeping us updated. Because there were numerous people involved with the purchase of this property, Cindy really did a wonderfully job keeping it together. We highly recommend Cindy Dalla and will continue to use her for all future transactions.
Cindy recently sold our home and some adjacent land. She was a tireless advocate and always did more than expected. In spite of complexities with the land sale, she worked vigorously to both understand and explain the land in a coherent manner. Cindy obtained multiple offers and was professional in the execution of her duties. We would have no hesitation recommending Cindy to any prospective buyer or seller of real estate. Thank you Cindy!
Jim and Ann
You meet a few good genuine people in your life and Lee is one of them. He went out of his way to help us sell our house and buy our new home. We don`t say this lightly because having a good relationship has to be earned. His patience, experience and simply put “easy way of making everything make good sense” helped us to succeed in a very aggressive market. Thanks Lee you are truly one of the good guys.
Garry and Trina C.
Lee Schmidt is definitely the BEST realtor out there. He is very professional, highly experienced and knowledgeable. Lee takes the time to understand the exact needs of his clients and will always go above and beyond to achieve great results to the satisfaction of his client. I have been very impressed with his skills, excellent follow up and his genuine approach to handle the needs of our family.
Lee did in fact exceed our expectations and made the whole process a very smooth and pleasant experience for us. He acted as a true advisor and a great expert. I know that I will always call for his services.
Let me tell you about Cindy Dalla. She is caring, conscientious, bubbly, kind, warm, energetic, outgoing go-getter lady. If you want a friend or realtor, Cindy is a perfect choice.
I met Cindy after the death of my brother. It was a very hard time for me. A friend recommended Cindy to sell my brother’s house. Upon meeting Cindy, I felt so at ease and knew she was the realtor I wanted.
Cindy is not a game player. She kept me kept the loop and returned my calls promptly. Sorry to say, I have had prima-donna realtors previously and Cindy is surely not one.
Cindy comes high in my book as she exceeded any and all expectations. She was not afraid to work and she did so much beyond the call of duty in getting my brother’s house sold. She is amazing. By the way, his house was in a run down condition and she kept us all up by her ideas of what could be done and what needed to be done to bring this house up to a clean sale-able home.
You would be doing yourself a big service and simplifying your situation by giving Cindy the opportunity to sell your property. I am so grateful to her for all she took on and freed me up from worry. Bless her!
Very truly yours,
I would like to let you know how happy and satisfied I am with my realtor, Cindy Dalla.
I started looking for a house in Silicon Valley in May 2013. I had gone through 2 realtors before I met Cindy in October. She is very professional, very knowledgeable, gives sound advise and has a very realistic outlook on what I can expect in a home within a specific price range.
Cindy is very responsive to my emails and phone calls. She is easy to reach by phone, and calls back right away when I leave a message. She eased my frustrations and stresses when it came to “bidding wars” and buying a not so-perfect house. She is a realtor that one can trust and depend upon to do the best for them.
Through her hard work, I finally found a house in Santa Clara that was quite perfect in terms of price and location. I have bought and sold homes before and have not seen any realtor negotiate like Cindy. She has exceptional negotiating ability. If I have to buy another property again, I will choose Cindy with no doubt.
I will recommend her to anybody who wants to purchase a home because she is outstanding and works very hard for her client’s best interest.
To whom it may concern,
Our experience with Lee Schmidt as our Realtor was superb! He was very knowledgeable and informative throughout the entire process of selling our home. He placed our home on the market and four days later, we had two offers above asking price!!! He got us more money for our home than we thought we could get and had the entire escrow closed in about a month. He also kept us informed and was easily accessible throughout the selling process of our home. He is very knowledgeable in what he does and definitely looks out for your best interests. We recommend Lee to anyone who is serious about selling their home. He will guide you and help you get more money. We highly recommend Lee. Thank you for making the sale of our home very pleasurable!
Manny and Alyise T.
We highly recommend Lee Schmidt for all your real estate needs. He is professional and also very wise and knowledgeable in all areas of the real estate market. He helped us sell our Manufactured Home at a time when none were selling in our park. We were starting to think maybe we should lower our price, but he said to stand firm, our home was worth every penny – so we took his advice and held tight and prayed and waited and it sold in less than 3 months – we actually had 2 people bidding at the same time and we got a little over what we had originally told Lee we were hoping to get. He is a great man to work with, he is honest and a man of integrity and also has a great sense of humor. It is evident that he is working in an area that God has gifted him in. We plan to be work with him again in all our future real estate needs.
Patrick & Leslie W.
I would Highly Recommend Lee Schmidt if you are looking for a Good Realtor. He sold my mother’s house at a good price, Quickly efficiently! Took care of all the groundwork for the cleaning & Repairs, as we were not in the area. Lee is a Highly Knowledgeable & well qualified Senior specialist. Can’t thank him enough for the thorough Job he did!
I wanted to thank you for the outstanding real estate services that you provided. The services we received went above and beyond the call of duty. You were always available when we called and changed your schedule to meet our needs. You walked us through the process and made decisions to protect our interest.
When the purchase was completed you recommended the contractors who made the changes to the property that we wanted. After we partnered with those contractors you checked in with us to ensure my wife and I were satisfied customers. You also took time out of your schedule to meet with contractors when we were not available.
Once again Angelo, I want to thank you for doing an outstanding job and for your friendship and high level of professionalism.
Eric and Constance T.
I was fortunate to have Angelo Gorgulho represent me in the purchase of my home, Angelo was professional and a master negotiator. He always seemed to know what would happen, and was prepared. It was a very pleasant experience to purchase a home with Angelo working for us. I refer my friends to him, knowing he will take care of them!
I can’t say enough good things about our experience selling our condo with Lee Schmidt. He’s an absolute professional with a deep understanding of the Silicon Valley housing market. He went out of his way to help us figure out what we would need to make out of the sale and made sure we got it. Throughout the whole process, he was unflappable and talked me down when I started to get anxious. We would have probably accepted less for our condo and found ourselves struggling to afford our next home if it hadn’t been for him.
He even found us a great agent in Portland. He was always in our corner and I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a great real estate agent. If I wasn’t moving out of state, I would use him again myself without a moment’s hesitation.
Thanks so much for everything,
Deb and Dan
We worked with Lee to move from our home of 20 years in Grass Valley to San Jose to be closer to our granddaughter. It was a difficult process, and Lee was absolutely instrumental in getting everything to work out perfectly. He not only found us a wonderful condo in the Villages development, but worked with our realtor in Grass Valley, as well as the realtor of the woman selling the condo. He coordinated everything, and made sure everyone involved was on the timeline that we needed. He was patient, thorough, and made sure to explain every step of the process. He has followed up with us on several occasions, even though the sale was complete several months ago to make sure we were adjusting to our new area. We thank Lee for all of his hard work, and caring nature. We would recommend him highly to anyone trying to buy or sell a home!
Tom & Sally R.
We are really excited we hired Lee to be the realtor to sell our home. Within one week of Lee listing our home, we received an offer. Lee followed responsible processes and procedures to properly qualify the buyer and the offer was efficiently and properly administered to successful closure of the sale. Thank you Lee for working hard and efficiently.
Gregg and Karen K.
I retired a couple of years ago and had been thinking about selling my home here in California to move to another state.
I started by contacting realtors on-line. I have received several responses from different realty companies. During the next three months which it took me to “de-clutter” and get my home ready for the market.
Lee stayed in contact and took the time to understand why I was looking to selling my home and trying to relocate. When he completed his market research I was pleasantly surprised at the listing price for my home, which was more than I thought. Lee explained the selling process and reassured me that my home would sell. Lee kept me informed during the entire process.
Lee was very instrumental in helping me understand the multiple offers I received. Why some stood out and seemed to be much better than other offers.
During the entire process I felt that Lee always put me first. His dedication and reliability are without question. I would have no hesitation recommending Lee to my friends and family.
In the springtime of this year, my wife Raylene and I had the occasion to look for a new home as a replacement for the one we were selling in Gilroy, CA. Within this process came the search for a realtor. We interviewed a few prospects, some of which had been suggested by friends of ours. Once the interview process was complete, we decided on Lee Schmidt. Having met previously, we were no strangers but we had not had the opportunity to interact professionally. Getting serious about the purchase of a home represents something which one doesn’t treat lightly. Reviewing Lee’s history in the business wasn’t too difficult since he has been involved in the business for a number of years, especially in the South Bay Area which was our primary area of interest.
After making our choice and relating to him what our primary criteria were, the search began. Several leads were developed as well as a number of visits to prospective purchases. Lee was really our eyes and ears and represented our interests the way I felt an agent should. I wanted an agent that would be my “go to guy” for everything related to the purchase. That individual was Lee. He kept us unformed, gave valid suggestions, pointed out various areas of concern relative to individual houses, and generally guided us to the home we eventually purchased. He knew what we wanted and separated the wheat from the chaff. Where Lee was most helpful was during the final offer process. He was able to virtually anticipate the sellers’ reaction to our offer and zero in on an offer that was accepted. This takes experience, foresight, and Intuition. Fortunately for us, Lee has these qualities in his realtor “tool kit.”
Lee put us first. His integrity, dedication, and reliability are without question. I have had the occasion to use a realtor in the past on two or three occasions and Lee is at the top of the list. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends, family, or colleagues without hesitation.
Curtiss and Raylene N.
Being a first time homebuyer, I was nervous about the home buying process. Luckily my lender set me up with Lee Schmidt. After my first meeting with Lee, all my nerves and fears were gone, and I knew I was in good hands. I felt like Lee really listened to our cares and concerns, and took them into consideration when showing us homes. He had our back during the entire process and continuously updated us as things evolved. I loved that Lee was constantly sending updates about new homes on the market, which made my life much easier. He was always available by phone and quick to respond to my many emails. With Lee, we found the perfect home for us, and with very little stress. I would definitely recommend Lee to my family, friends, and co-workers.
Buying a home in the bay area is a challenge and being a first time home buyer in the area is an even bigger challenge, after about a year of looking and putting in offers and 3 different realtors we were about to give up. That is when our loan agent referred us to Don Rock, not only did Don help us to successfully buy our first home but his insight and positive attitude made an intimidating experience much more comfortable. We cannot begin to say how much we appreciated the number of hours he spent with us in person, and by phone, keeping us totally informed every step of the way – morning and night. Don showed extraordinary professionalism and we could not have had better support. Don is obviously in real-estate because he likes people and made us feel like we were working with a friend and not just a realtor. We will definitely recommend Don Rock to our colleagues and friends looking to buy or sell a house in the bay area.
Ben C & Mia F.
We could not have been happier with our experience working with Lee on the recent sale of our home. Our home was on the market for 7 months with another agency before we signed on with Lee. With his excellent marketing skills and positive upbeat attitude he was able to sell our home in less than 4 weeks at a great price. Lee was on top of every detail throughout the entire selling process and made sure everything went smoothly and efficiently. His communication skills are excellent. He kept us updated every step of the way and whenever we called or emailed, he always responded quickly. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Lee and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Lee Schmidt is a very respectable person and looks out for the best interest for the client and not his commission. I have bad experiences in the past and they have put me in a bad sittuation. Lee is definitely not that way he will make sure that it is best for you as the client. He also makes everything very smooth and as little hassel for you so that way you are not inconvienced in any way. He is very quick at responding and has a lot of knowledge on what he does. Thank you Lee!
Our experience with Lee Schmidt spanned over several months with him representing us both with selling our home and the purchase of a new home. Our home sold quickly and for more than the listing price, primarily due to Lee’s expertise with the Market. He is very knowledgable with the process for either side of a transaction, is very responsive, patient and tenacious. He listens to the needs of his clients, is very flexible and thinks “outside the box”.

Very professional, knowledgeable. Always looking for his customer’s best interest. Honest and was available for me any time I needed to get in contact with him to answer questions. All around fun and good guy to work with. Very satisfied with my experience with him in selling and purchasing a home in a timely manner.

Lee was fantastic. He went above and beyond with a transaction that was complicated and confusing. He explained everything to us in a way that we could understand. I can’t say enough about him and his professionalism. Thank you so very much Lee and hope to work with you again in the future.
My husband and I are first time home-buyers. We are also pretty new to California (2 years). So we were looking for an agent that would be gentle with us, but also be as informative as possible.
As we started to interview agents, we noticed two common traits – they were on their time and wanted to quickly get us in a house at the top of our budget to maximize their commission. We wanted someone who would take the time to understand our needs and wants. In our first meeting with Lee, he sat with us for almost 2 hours figuring out what we were looking for in a home (all the others gave us about 20 minutes), so we knew immediately it was a good fit.
He followed up with suggested homes, answered all our random questions about foundations, roofing, painting, termites, and the whole nine yards. Plus, he’s got some great connections to contractors who can quickly tell you how much something is going to cost to fix or replace.
In our quest to buy a home with great living space and a decent lot size, we decided to go with a fixer upper. There were plenty of homes at higher prices that were move-in ready, but Lee understood that we wanted this one in particular. From putting in the initial offer to pushing the seller to fix problems BEFORE we closed to being present at our signing, Lee was there and on our side.
With Lee’s help, we were able to get the house we wanted at a price that made sense for our budget. We highly recommend using Lee for your next home purchase. You’ll know right away that you’re in great hands.

We began working together in 2004 to find me a place to buy. We bid on several places but because I was unwilling to bid above asking, we kept losing out. I appreciated all your advice but more importantly I really appreciated it even more that you respected my decision to bid within my financial means and that you never gave up on me as a potential buyer. Over the 8 years we worked together on this, you were diligent in sending me information on places for sale in the specific areas I cared about and visited many places with me. I was very picky and you never tried to push me to accept less or accept something different. When we finally had a place within a price target I felt comfortable with, I greatly appreciated your patience in explaining how a short sale would work and keeping me updated as it moved through the ‘slow’ process. As I experienced hiccups in my loan applicationprocess, you were supportive when I changed loan agents even though it might delay our closing and stayed on top of me, the loan agent, the title company and the seller to ensure things kept moving. What’s even more remarkable is that you never focused on your fee but always focused on helping me find a place that would suit my individual preferences and needs. And then after the close, helped me deal w/ finding the respective Utility information to start the process of moving service to me. Thanks for all your support. I’m looking forward to being completely moved in and would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a place, especially first time buyers/sellers. Thanks for positive attitude, flexibleness, diligence and professionalism. May God Bless all that you do!

Hi, Lee just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me with my house, I did not know what to do. You where so helpful and understanding about my problem. With all that I was going through, lack of money and people calling me all of the time, you took care of everything. I couldn’t be happier, nor be in better hands than with you. Thank you again for your wonderfull help. It went really fast too.
I just wanted you to know how happy I am with the place, but most of all I am so pleased with you as our Realtor. You represented both sides and truly took care of both of us. Your follow through was impeccable. You took care of everything you said you would, as I felt you did for Rose also, it was like you took a personal interest. I didn’t expect the hall light to be replaced but it was, you even took care of the opening that bothered my daughter. I really feel you stepped up beyond what a normal realtor does. Thank you for making me comfortable is asking future questions.I will be giving my highest recommendations about you to all my friends and co-workers. It was a real pleasure doing business with you.
My family and I want to thank you for your services in the sale of our homes. Your knowledge in the selling process and relationships with different inspectors saved us money and time. Your persistence and integrity paid off and we will be happy to provide a recommendation if you ever need one.

Lee is a very professional and hands on realtor. In 2004 we wanted to sell our home. Lee came to our house, explained exactly what we should do to prepare, declutter and stage the home for sale. Not only did his strategy help us sell the house, we sold it in 4 days for over our asking price. Then he assisted us in finding a new home. We are fussy people, so this took several months. Lee never gave up on the search and we eventually found the perfect home. That’s why in 2010, when my father passed away, all I had to do is call Lee. He made sure that the sale of his house went as quickly and as smooth as possible. My family and I not only consider Lee a great realtor, we consider him part of the family. To say the least, we trust him completely.

Lee was incredibly helpful to us in both the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home. He listened to what we wanted, and made sure we saw everything that came onto the market as soon as it hit. He made everything easy in a not-so-easy market, and we would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat! Lee even helped us find people to do the work on our new house, we couldn’t be happier!
Tom and Kristin R.
Being first time home buyers, we had multiple questions and concerns regarding the process of both short sales and bank owned houses. Lee was always available to answer our questions and discuss our options. Lee always listened to us and made sure we were comfortable and truly happy with the outcome of every stage of purchasing our home. Lee negotiated with the banks as though his money was on the line, which is a true sign of a trustworthy Realtor.
