Barbie Schmidt Office Manager




Barbie's smiling face is the first you are likely to meet when you visit our office in Historic Downtown Winter Garden. As our excellent Office Manager, Barbie provides The Real Estate Collection’s agents and customers with first contact to close coordination, business operations support, event organization and so much more. She is a hard-working professional woman yet always has time to share her sweet love, incredible wisdom and kind words with clients, colleagues and guests of The Real Estate Collection and our Winter Garden offices.


Barbie is our very own California Girl. While living in this western sunshine state she worked for ABC Studios as the assistant to the Vice President of Children's Programming. One of her most memorable responsibilities included choosing the Saturday morning cartoon/tv episode line-up for the studio!


Barbie befriends and makes time for everyone who crosses her path, from the homeless gentleman who regularly visits and serenades her at the office, to Hollywood stars, American heroes, and every one of The Real Estate Collection's customers.


Barbie and her husband Troy have lived and been actively involved in their Windermere and Central Florida communities since 1993. They have three (very tall) grown sons, two beautiful daughter-in-laws, and look forward to becoming grandparents to Penelope this April.
