Help us welcome broker, Kristie Schmitt who recently joined our team. She has lived in Bend since 2015 after moving with the intention of living close to family temporarily. After a few weeks, it was clear Bend would be her long-term home. Shortly after, she earned her broker’s license and has worked in residential real estate for the last couple of years. Prior to that, she worked successfully managing teams and projects for various business to business and direct to consumer companies.
Kristie’s skills set is in building a rapport with clients and maintaining strong relationships. Her experience in business development and a high-level of customer service fits well with the culture at Compass Commercial where core values focus around the client and their needs. Kristie will be working with Pat Kesgard, CCIM to assist in deals as she learns to navigate the nuances of commercial real estate.
Since arriving in Bend, Kristie has been working with a couple of organizations, serving on their committees. She currently serves on the selection committee for Building a Better Central Oregon and on the PR committee for the Central Oregon Association of Realtors (COAR). Kristie enjoys the community Bend has and the access to outdoor activities, and she greatly enjoys being close to her family and spending time with them.
