Meet Barbara Schmal, Broker Associate

Thank you for reading my bio. I hope you will enjoy all the information I have provided.

I have had a love for real estate all my adult life. My father-built homes and I was always helping him, so I decided to obtain my real estate license and help people to obtain their dream homes. I became a realtor for Indiana and Illinois in 1990 and worked with a company named McColly Better Homes and Gardens from 1990 to 1998. I had great mentors and learned a lot about the real estate market for existing homes and new construction.

I moved to Florida in 1998 and started rehabbing homes in the Clearwater area. I enjoyed taking tired sad homes and making them come alive once again. When I completed a house, I needed to find a family to make the house a home. I went back to real estate state school to get my Florida Real Estate License. I received my license in 2012 and I continued to take classes so I can be the best to make sure I provide the best customer service possible. I received the GRI designation (Graduate Realtor Institute), RSPS certification (Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist), and PSA certification (Pricing Strategic Advisor). Received my Brokers License in 2016, and I have been a Florida Real Estate Instructor since 2014. I was awarded the Five Star Professional Award for Tampa Real Estate Agent 2018. In 2020 I received the CAM License (Community Association Manager License). I am a Florida Certified Real Estate Instructor and own Real Estate Training School. In the past, I taught real estate licensing classes for Bob Hogue and the Tampa School of Real Estate.

I was born in Harvey Illinois and at age 13 moved to South Holland, Illinois where I lived for 25 years. I graduated in 1970 from Thornridge High School, in Dolton Illinois, home of the Falcons. Then in 1990, I moved to Crown Point Indiana, and back to Dyer Indiana in 1994.

Owner and Certified Real Estate Instructor for Real Estate Training School. I offer real estate Pre-License, Post License, and Continue Education Courses.
These courses can be taken via Livestream, or Online. – Phone: 727-386-4862 – Email: info@realestatetrainingschool

My other passion is decorating cakes. I love to use my talents in creating specialty cakes and cupcakes for any occasion. I lobbied to get the Cottage Food Law passed and on July 1, 2010, Governor Scott signed it into law. This law allows people who have a baking or cooking passion to have a home-based business and sell to the public. Here is the link for more information about the Cottage Food Law
