Don Schmidt

First off, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  I’m Don Schmidt and I’m both a realtor and a loan officer based in La Jolla, CA.  I’ve worked various aspects of both the title and mortgage business and have been both a loan officer and realtor for the last two years.

Not that this is news, but we are probably experiencing the most challenging economic times since the 1930’s.  I know you’ve already heard that, but it is not an exaggeration.   We are all getting bombarded with information that makes it seem like  the industry is changing almost on a daily basis.

Because of this  constantly changing industry, I want this blog to be informative, a place where people can share ideas and provoke thought regarding the real estate and loan business.  Along with talking real estate and loans, I’ll be blogging on different aspect of living in Southern California.

It’s can’t always be serious 24/7/365, so I will also blog on some “off-topic” topics, ie my favorite show is “The Office”.  One of my favorite fall topics is college football. 

One compliance piece of business, the CA DRE now wants your license number on everything so here it is, CA Real Estate License #01347868

So welcome, and I hope you’ll visit here on a regular basis.
