"I LOVE the house I live in. Bob Schmitz properties are wonderful older homes that have been restored... He takes pride in his properties, doing things such as planting flowers and trees or building a deck off the back of your house to add a feeling of home to the rental properties. I have been very pleased with my living situation and would HIGHLY recommend looking at Bob Schmitz Properties...The price is right, the location excellent, and the staff very friendly and ready to fix any problem or concern you have..."

Pet Of The Week
ADOPT ME! This is Zadie and she is currently being fostered by one of our tenants. She is available for adoption through Independent Animal Rescue. Zadie is a Pointer Mix and about 8 months old.  She loves to play fetch, and then snuggle on the couch. Watch out though, Zadie snores! She is working on being housebroken, and already has good leash manners. She is very eager to please! Check out www.animalrescue.net for more information on Zadie and other animals in search of their forever home!

Truly Personalized Service

We own every one of the homes that we offer for rent. For you, that means a personalized, flexible experience. Because we are the property owners and not property managers for multiple owners, we can be fast and flexible with responses to your requests.

Need flexibility with negotiating a lease? Need to call us from Ikea to personally measure the width of the living room to ensure that your favorite furniture will fit? No problem, you can count on the Bob Schmitz Property team to help make your home experience enjoyable.

What’s Your Idea of the Perfect Home?

Because we have so many floor plans and properties, we can help you find a place that’s exactly what you’re looking for. Looking for an east-facing bedroom with sun, a fenced yard for your pet, or a serene view with trees where you can listen to the birds chirp while drinking your morning coffee? Whatever your fancy, one of our properties is almost certain to have exactly what you envision as the ideal living experience and we take pride in helping you find it.
