After an impressive 25 years in real estate and 15 years working and living in Coconut Grove, Mitzi Mitchell Burns, Coconut Grove sales director for Cervera Real Estate Inc., knows the area’s community and families better than anyone. In her time serving buyers and sellers across single-family, land and condominium sales, Mitchell has seen this “hippie town” and its surrounding areas transition to high-dollar luxury while still maintaining the feel and vitality that made her first fall in love with them.
“I wanted to be in a sales position where there is no ceiling to what you’re able to accomplish,” Burns explains of her initial driving force to get into real estate. “It has been a marvelous journey and an incredible learning experience.” She believes that as a result of the growth and evolution of the region, Coconut Grove has so much to offer in terms of activities, restaurants, parks and other amenities. And with her friendly, warm and informative business style that’s 100% tailored to clients, Burns is another marquis feature of Coconut Grove, which she serves along with other areas like Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Sunny Isles.
“I am professional, but I love to have fun, too,” remarks Mitchell of her style of communication. “I like to jump right into what they’re seeking without delay, and I follow up.” Now a leader of a team of four real estate agents, Burns says she has built a clientele that is largely referral-based, with her team working together beautifully to make dreams come true for each of those clients. “Our greatest accomplishments,” she says, “are helping families find a place they love living in.”
