Coconut Grove Cervera Real Estate
Mitzi Mitchell Burns considers herself an overnight success 23 years in the making. “The key to success in real estate is persistence,” says Burns, sales director for Coconut Grove at Cervera Real Estate, Inc. “There are challenges in every transaction.”
Working with both local and international clients, Burns assists sellers, buyers, investors and renters in the Coconut Grove, Brickell, Key Biscayne, Coral Gables, South Beach, Surfside and Sunny Isles markets. “My biggest sales accomplishment each year is helping families find a place that they love and enjoy,” she says. “When my clients are happy, I am happy too! Whenever possible, I plan a celebration with my clients after they have moved into their new home.”
Prior to joining Cervera, Burns spent nearly 14 years in pre-construction sales, including development projects such as Grand Bay Tower Residences, Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, Bellini Bal Harbor and Grovenor House, building up an extensive client base that has remained loyal to her. “I had one family that said they were not intending to buy in Miami and just happened to be staying at the Ritz-Carlton in Coconut Grove on their way back to Puerto Rico from Paris,” she explains. “We met and they ended up buying an apartment. Whenever they saw me in the following years, they reminded me how they would not have bought an apartment had they not met me and fallen in love with the property I showed them. That kind of feedback is so very touching.”
Burns has ranked as a Cervera Real Estate Top Producer for the last five years in a row and is a member of the Master Brokers Forum and the Condo Experts Group. She volunteers at Christ Journey Church and is a supporter of World Vision.
