Schadt is participating in Long & Foster’s Success Path program, which offers extensive training and resources for agents at any stage of their career.

“The dynamics of today’s residential real estate market are constantly changing. Participating in our Success Path program has provided Erika with the right tools to meet those changing dynamics,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “We welcome Erika to Long & Foster, a company that has helped local buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals for nearly 50 years.”
Schadt was born in Virginia Beach and moved to Emerald Isle, North Carolina, when her parents bought a restaurant in 1988. She grew up in the restaurant business and has worked in hopsititaliy for as long as she can remember. Schadt graduated from Carteret Community College with a degree in hospitality management and certificate of veterinary assistance before she attended the Alpha College of Real Estate this past September.

They have two boys, Fisher and Mattix. Schadt’s personal motto is, “All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.” In her spare time, Schadt enjoys cooking, exercising, going boating and fishing with her family.
