Kevin Schmidtchen

A native of Santa Barbara, Kevin Schmidtchen has been a real estate professional with Sotheby’s International Realty in the Santa Barbara and Montecito areas since 2001. Kevin grew up involved with local sports that he continues to enjoy today, including surfing, climbing, skiing, and snowboarding.

While attending UCSB, Kevin went to Europe to play on the professional tennis satellite circuit. He returned to UCSB and then studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria. Both of these events changed him greatly, and led him to have one immediate major goal in his life: to travel around the world.

After graduating from UCSB, Kevin returned to Europe, where he spent the next four years working abroad in Austria, Germany, Japan and New Zealand, while traveling to over 50 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, South and Central America, and the South Pacific.

Kevin returned to the U.S. and lived in Telluride, Colorado and Lake Tahoe, California before attending Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management, where he received his MBA. Upon graduating, he returned home to Santa Barbara, where he is now married to a wonderful Dutch woman, whom he met while doing an internship in the Netherlands. They have 2 sons named Jan and Bodhi.

Because he enjoys selling real estate and loves Santa Barbara, Kevin is committed to the highest standards in the profession. Kevin's clients receive his expertise, professionalism, integrity, honesty, loyalty, service, and knowledge of Santa Barbara and its real estate market.

The majority of Kevin's business is through referrals, from people whom he has helped to buy or sell a home in Santa Barbara. As the result of satisfied clients, he has succeeded in building a referral base of single individuals, couples and families who are happy to recommend his services.
