Welcome Home, Donald Schmitt!

Donald Schmitt, REALTOR®, has joined the Palm Springs Main office of Bennion Deville Homes, located at 850 North Palm Canyon Drive. Donald is a resident of Cathedral Canyon Country Club and works with buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in Palm Springs and Cathedral City. Donald moved to the Greater Palm Springs Area full time in 2000, giving him nearly two decades of familiarity with the cool SoCal desert lifestyle.

Real estate has always been a personal passion of Donald’s. Even before he earned his real estate license, he conducted many transactions, buying and selling several properties in the Coachella Valley. He also loves to explore homes and see the different styles of architecture unique to the Greater Palm Springs Area. “I see real estate as an incredible opportunity to build my own business and help others achieve their own financial independence and lifestyle goals,” Donald says. “I have always embraced the motto of ‘home is my happy place’ and endeavor to find that ‘happy place’ for each of my clients.”

Prior to earning his real estate license, Donald was in the securities industry where he supported a stable of financial planners. In that role, he sharpened his professional skillset and developed a strong brand of high-touch client service. Donald’s experience and inherent ability to read people key his success. “I have always been able to connect with a variety of personalities and talk to a broad spectrum of people. Service is my calling card and I want to help any way that I can. I always aim to under promise and over perform, and I only commit to things that I know I can deliver,” continues Donald.

Beyond helping clients accomplish their real estate goals, Donald has a passion for helping others, founded on the basic need of food. “I love to cook and create different dishes at home. The Food Network is constantly on in my house. My goal is to get more involved in serving delicious meals to our community and ensuring everyone has access to a healthy, wholesome, home-cooked meal by volunteering at the food banks and soup kitchens,” he adds.

Bennion Deville Homes is the place for Donald to call home because of the brokerage’s exceptional support of its agents. “My friend Guy Prehn, who is also an agent with Bennion Deville Homes, suggested I interview here. I always want to align myself with the best, so after doing my due diligence with other opportunities around town, I came back to Bennion Deville Homes. The name-recognition and market share give me a better platform to run my business than anywhere else. I also appreciate the opportunity to work with a non-competing broker and have their guidance and help in my corner,” Donald concludes.

Adds David Cantwell, Managing Broker, “Donald Schmitt is a solid addition to our Palm Springs Main office. He is very approachable, kind, and responsive to client needs. Between his local market knowledge, commitment to ethics, and genuine personality, I know his career will continue to shine brightly with us. On behalf of everyone, welcome home, Donald.”
