REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE COLDWELL BANKER THE AMELIA GROUP JOINS SCHMIDT FAMILY OF COMPANIES - ONE OF NATION’S LARGEST REAL ESTATE FIRMS
AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. (September, 2022) – Coldwell Banker The Amelia Group has announced today that it has merged with the Schmidt Family of Companies, one of the largest, independently-owned Coldwell Banker franchises in the world, and one of the nation’s largest real estate firms, with over 90 offices and approximately 2,000 agents on both coasts of Florida, western and northern Michigan, northeast Ohio and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Schmidt Family of Companies, led by Ken and Mike Schmidt, is a fifth generation, full-service real estate brokerage firm that was founded in Michigan in 1927. The company is one of the nation’s top real estate firms with a combined 19,858 transactions and $5.521 billion in sales volume in 2021. The firm already has a presence on Florida’s east coast based in St. Augustine as Coldwell Banker Premier Properties serving more than 100 miles of beautiful coastline along northern St. John’s county, south to Daytona Beach and all points in between and as Coldwell Banker Paradise serving the Space and Treasure Coasts. They also serve the Gulf Coast through their Port Charlotte based firm Coldwell Banker Sunstar Realty.
Coldwell Banker The Amelia Group will retain its name and continue to be led locally by Bruce and Pat Jasinsky. The full-service firm provides residential, luxury and commercial real estate sales, property management and relocation services. Bruce, Pat and Justin - The Jasinsky Team - will continue to work with their past clients and future customers serving the citizens of Nassau County for all their real estate needs.
Bruce began his real estate career in 1976 after moving to Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach from Virginia after college. He opened his own real estate company, Jasinsky & Associates, Inc, in 1983. Bruce and Pat purchased the Coldwell Banker franchise in October 1988 realizing that the real estate industry was moving in the direction of national branded companies. The company quickly grew to be one of the top producing real estate companies in Nassau County. In 2010 they modified their business strategy to become a boutique real estate company, affiliating themselves only with top producing agents offering the most exceptional service to their clients. That strategy has allowed them to consistently rank in the top brokerages in their area.
“Our decision to affiliate with the Schmidt Family of Companies evolved as a result of our desire to really focus on our clients and to provide our agents with all the advanced resources that the Schmidt family has to offer,” said Bruce Jasinsky. Pat Jasinsky added, “Joining forces with this real estate powerhouse is a bold and exciting time for us. The level of sales and marketing resources and support that we will receive from our new relationship will only enhance the outstanding customer service we currently provide to our agents and our seller and buyer clients.”
“This is a joining of two firms with similar beliefs,” said Ken Schmidt, CEO of Schmidt Family of Companies. “Focusing on our core values of family, trust and a deep commitment to community, Bruce and Pat Jasinsky and Coldwell Banker The Amelia Groups’ legacy goes beyond their decades of service and good name.”
“Our expanded east coast presence with Coldwell Banker The Amelia Group allows us to integrate our value proposition in a collaborative effort to serve our agents and their clients who look to do business with us,” said Steve Carr, Regional President, Florida Operations for Schmidt Family of Companies.
Ken Schmidt’s son Mike, President of Schmidt Family of Companies added, “We are very excited about our company’s further development on the east coast of Florida. We are clearly in growth mode and today’s announcement is another positive sign and shows how bullish we are on the region’s future. Bruce, Pat and their exceptional team of agents are a perfect fit for our culture. We are committed to growth in the most desirable areas with the right companies to ensure that all home buyers and sellers receive the best imaginable service and that our agents and brokers are afforded every opportunity to maximize their business potential.”
