Real Estate Investment
Tallahassee, Florida is noted as one of the country’s top five rental investment markets. Having inherited business instincts from her mother, a veteran in property management and real estate investments, Mitchell works with buyers to identify properties they can purchase to renovate for long-term rental income. To help buyers avoid potential pitfalls associated with purchasing investment properties, Dedra personally assists clients with navigating the complex and often tedious process of bidding on foreclosures. She guides buyers every step of the way from identifying properties, conducting visual inspections and bidding to ownership, resale or rental.
Mitchell enjoys consulting with buyers searching an ideal community for a house they can purchase at low cost to renovate into the home of their dreams. Working as an apprentice to her father, a master craftsman, Mitchell’s homeowners benefit from her knowledge of rehab techniques, industry insights, and access to trade professionals who deliver quality service at fair prices. Mitchell also has an eye for creative design and décor that maintains the character of a home without sacrificing its charm and style.
