At Schmidt Luxury Homes, we do not simply build houses, we build homes.
Andrew Schmidt has been a custom home builder since 1982. As President of Schmidt Brothers Executive Homes (1982-2003), Andrew and brother Randall built over 1,100 custom homes throughout Hillsborough County, most notably in the Brandon, South Tampa, Tampa Palms, and Apollo Beach area. He and his teams have received over 10 Grand Awards and numerous others in the TBBA’s annual “Parade of Homes”.
In 2003, Andrew formed a new company with sons Aaron and Gabriel. This new venture was highly successful throughout the real estate boom years (2003-2008), again proving his ability to build high-quality, award winning homes in two major subdivisions: The Vineyard in Brandon and Bimini Bay in Apollo Beach.
With over 30+ years of custom home building experience Andrew Schmidt knows what it takes to run a successful custom home building company. He has seen the ups and downs of an industry that has become extremely volatile in recent years. In the future, Andrew’s priorities have become more focused on his children and their ability to continue the legacy of building beautiful homes for Tampa Bay residents.
At Schmidt Luxury Homes, Andrew enjoys a renewed focus with his eldest son Aaron, seeking to further build a company founded on faith, service, and an outstanding product. Always looking towards the future, Andrew looks forward to many more years, awards, and homes to come.
Aaron graduated from Jesuit High School in Tampa, FL, where he excelled in academics and sports. He then graduated from the University of Central Florida with both his Bachelor Degree in Business Administration and his Real Estate License.
After college Aaron worked under his father Andrew and uncle Randall for their building company in Brandon, FL. In 2003 Aaron obtained his Certified Residential Contractor’s License, and by 2004 he also earned his Real Estate Broker’s License and opened up Schmidt Real Estate.
Born and raised in Tampa Bay, Aaron has grown up in the building industry his whole life. By working as a young man through summer jobs as a block mason to weekends as a sales agent, Aaron has seen first hand what it takes to both design & construct custom homes. In 2003 Aaron — along with brother Gabriel & father Andrew — founded Schmidt Brothers Homes. Aaron was soon managing The Vineyard, a booming subdivision in the city of Brandon. After three years of great success in that subdivision, Aaron joined his partners at Bimini Bay, another highly successful endeavor, and together they built approximately 100 custom homes in under 7 years.
By late 2010, Aaron and Gabriel moved to North Carolina to launch a highly successful roofing company. In its first year, Carolina Shingle became the largest residential roofing contractor in the Charlotte area, with 500+ roofs installed in 2011 and 500+ in 2012. Aaron was the working general manager for the company, responsible for all setup and management of most aspects including direct sales, construction supervision, and hiring / training new employees.
In early 2013, the improving home building landscape in Florida convinced Aaron to rejoin his father. Guided by faith, Aaron, his beautiful wife Rhea, and their three young sons left behind family, work, and a tremendous church to return to his first passion: Building custom homes. Together they look forward to the resurgence of the Florida real estate market and building industry and continuing the legacy through Schmidt Luxury Homes.
