Rooted in Tradition, Committed to the Future

In 1976, when big mergers and franchising were redefining the real estate industry, Lois Schneider made a bold decision to start her own real estate company with a distinct and different focus – one office with one mission. That mission was superb client satisfaction.
For over 35 years, Lois stayed true to that commitment. Her unwavering focus on market knowledge and first class service made her a real estate legend. Lois’s attention to excellence and service was not only recognized in the stellar way that she ran her company, but was seen regularly through her active involvement with the community. If there was a community cause that needed support, Lois would be there to lend a hand. In a recent article in The Collection, Chamber of Commerce Board Chair John Rosellini stated, “Lois was an example to all of us on how to build a successful community-based business. Her hard work, dedication to the Summit community, and philanthropy has raised the bar for all of us to follow.” Her philanthropic endeavors and outstanding service were recognized on numerous occasions throughout her lifetime, most recently in 2011 with the Chamber’s “Silver Service Award.” She always followed her life-long motto: “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
Lois Schneider Realtor is fortunate to have Karen Schneider, Lois’s daughter, serving as our president. Karen grew up in her mother’s business; and although she graduated from Georgetown University and earned her law degree, she has maintained close ties with her hometown and the real estate business. She has been a Director at Lois Schneider Realtor since 1978 and co-CEO since 2010. Karen, like her mother, has the power of the most talented sales professionals in the industry on her team. This talent, along with the commitment to move forward with the vision of professional excellence and community responsibility that has always been the hallmark of Lois Schneider Realtor, is absolute proof that the tradition will continue.
Our Lois Schneider Realtor home, in the heart of Springfield Avenue in downtown Summit, will be forever changed by the passing of our mentor and our friend, Lois. She will be deeply missed, but it is with great pride and sincere commitment that we carry on the vision that she started 35 years ago. Lois believed that the heart of our town lies in the generosity and involvement of those who live and work here, and Lois Schneider Realtor, under the direction of Karen, will continue to be an avid supporter of the community that Lois loved so much.
