Agent Spotlight: Mary Michelle Mitchell

In her fourth year with the brokerage, Tomlin St Cyr Realtor Mary Michelle Mitchell focuses on helping buyers connect with the best home and mortgage broker that fits their situation and needs.


“My most valuable tool is communication,” she said. “I always, always talk to my buyers, sellers, and everyone involved in the transaction on a regular basis. I have been told by buyers, sellers, and even other agents that I interacted with how patient, kind, and organized I am. This is extremely helpful for a smoother transaction.”


Mary Michelle enjoys advocating for buyers and sellers to ensure they get the best care, resources, and as little stress as possible during their transactions. Recently, she was able to get an earlier closing date on a new build for a buyer, as well as extra closing credits, by using her skills as a certified Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE).


She regularly goes above and beyond for her clients. A recent example of this was helping out-of-state buyers who were arriving at their new home but didn’t get in until after midnight. “I shopped for them and filled their fridge with milk, water, and snacks, and purchased a coffee maker and coffee, bagels, and other quick fixings, along with an extra set of silverware, plates, cups, and napkins so they didn’t have to worry about food when they arrived or breakfast the next morning,” said Mary Michelle.


Here are some pro real estate tips from Mary Michelle:

  • For buyers and sellers: “I always encourage an inspection. No matter what.”
    • For sellers: “This will prevent any surprises during the inspection period.”
    • For buyers: “Even with new builds, they will have a clear understanding of what they are buying.”
  • For new agents: “It’s OK not to know an answer right away. Use your broker’s and your team’s experience and knowledge.”


Originally from New Jersey, Mary Michelle moved to Sarasota in 2000, where she lived for six years, married, and started a family. While there, she received her AA degree in Business Administration while working for a high-end custom home builder as a customer liaison.


In 2005, she and her family moved to Lutz in the Tampa Bay area, where she continued on in the construction industry. From there, she opened her own little coffee shop until it was time to relocate out of state. After a brief absence from Pasco County, she has returned to the area where she truly feels at home. Mary Michelle has worked in the customer service industry for over 30 years and joined Tomlin St Cyr Real Estate in early 2020.
