Terry Schmida was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and began visiting Key West as a youngster in the mid-1970s. Upon graduation from Concordia University in Montreal in 1995, he moved to Key West permanently, and began working at the Key West Citizen, Monroe County's only daily newspaper.
During his two-decades in journalism Terry covered the police beat, the arts, entertainment, and restaurant scene, social services and education – and real estate. He's also a musician and the author of three books of true crime stories, and occasional contributor to various other publications around town.
Terry has always been an architecture buff, and loves the rich variety of building styles in Key West – as well as the stories they hide within their weather beaten walls. His interest in the town's historic past, and commitment to the zeitgeist of Key West's flamboyant and fun-loving present, led him to follow his father, local real estate broker Walter Schmida, into the real estate business.
Terry enjoys introducing newcomers to his beloved adopted hometown, as they help to build the optimistic and dynamic Key West of the future.
