Ole Schmidt

Co-Owner | Managing Broker

With over a decade of real estate experience, Ole has earned a reputation as a local award-winning real estate expert and business leader. Ole is co-owner of Duttons, and holds licenses in Sales and Rental Property Management, as well as his Broker’s license. With a keen understanding of the real estate market and acumen for sales and negotiation, Ole leads our successful boutique Sales Division. His exceptional marketing skills and forward-thinking business strategies are invaluable when working with David Logan on the strategic planning of the Property Management Division, which has an active portfolio of almost 500 properties.

Ole’s patient, detail-oriented and knowledgeable approach to real estate, makes him endearing to both clients and fellow real estate colleagues. He is skilled at finding out what makes people tick and how they really want to live. Clients admire his talent for detecting even subtle assets or defects of a property, and his ability to solve problems creatively and sensitively. Ole knows business is about getting the details right and this is why there is no one you’d rather have in your corner when making a real estate move.

Ole’s local upbringing affords him an intimate knowledge of the neighbourhoods, cultures and buildings that make up our great city. He is a graduate of St. Michaels University School and the University of Victoria, from which he holds a Bachelor of Science degree. It is his education in urban planning, as well as his passion for design and architecture, that originally sparked his interest in real estate. Ole is also comfortable in a world of cultural, ethnic and economic diversity, having worked in South Korea for five years. In his free time, he loves exploring new destinations and spending time with his wife Genevieve. You might also find him training at the local gym, enjoying the sunny patios in Cook Street Village or planning his next renovation.
