That’s why it’s important to have the help of a local Realtor with the expertise to smoothly guide you through your home buying journey.

At Mitchell Real Estate we embrace the free exchange of data that virtual real estate platforms have created for the general public and are more than happy to help buyers acquire these homes through careful negotiation, due diligence and care.  Working with a professional helps you negotiate a better price on your home, and avoid costly mistakes and lawsuits.

Then there is the cost. Sellers pay the Listing Agent’s commission so the seller’s interests are well represented. Buyers whom are representing themselves in a purchase or look to the Listing Agent to write their offer-are not receiving the “fiduciary” care that they should. Mitchell Real Estate advocates very strongly on behalf of buyer clients AND buyers are not charged a commission or Realtor fees for the service. Why would anyone buying a home today do it alone? Mitchell Real Estate is here to help you buy that home, ranch, commercial property, etc. Let’s get going!

If you are looking for an advocate in a real estate transaction, Mary Mitchell is your person. Available extended times of day, thorough in the details, and willing to listen to your concerns or requests and never pushing her agenda, she proved to be the utmost professional. Our transaction ended up being more complicated than we anticipated, but with her help we were able to close and on time. We would recommend her without reservation.

Mary was incredibly helpful from day one and continually offers help wherever she can with the home she found us. As a home buyer she is the type of Real Estate Professional you are looking for. She knows exactly how the market works, she knows the right people and how to get things done in a timely manner. If you are looking for a home in the San Luis Obispo area I HIGHLY recommend Mary! :)

We were extremely pleased with our agent Mary Mitchell of Mitchell Realty. Mary is knowledgeable, consciences, and was responsive to our needs as clients. She not only found us our perfect home, she was instrumental in getting it rented for us. We would be very comfortable recommending her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home in the San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, or Los Osos area.
Morro Bay, CA
Mary was great to work with. Very responsive to questions and concerns. Offered good advice during the negotiations and very helpful throughout the entire closing process. She was very patient with our changing property priorities and kept us well informed of any properties coming on the market she thought we may be interested in and spent a lot of time with us showing properties. We highly recommend Mary for anyone interested in purchasing or selling a property in the Central Coast!
San Luis Obispo, CA
Having spent most of our lives in a hotel in the tropics, we were babes in the woods when we bought our house in California. If Mary Mitchell hadn't taken us by the hand and made it so easy, we probably would still be dealing with a property manager. We knew she was the right one, and she earned our trust when she found the exact house we were looking for. We knew we were in good hands. She obviously knows her business and answered all our questions. She put us at ease. Mary Mitchell has become a part of our family; what more can I say?
Lake Nacimiento, Paso Robles, CA
After reviewing a few real-estate agent profiles, we chose Mary. after exchanging a few emails and talking on the phone once or twice since we live too far to meet her in person. She was extremely attentive to our wishes and requirements. She worked with us diligently to prepare our only available day to visit houses. Once we made our decision, she took care of everything for us. She got us the house for a better price we were hoping for and negotiated all details with great success. She even gave us a list of recommendations for all services (pool, plumber, handyman....) in the area since we didn't know anyone. This whole project was smoother and quicker than we were hoping for!

If you don't have Mary on your side you are missing out! She is truly an expert and can put you at ease. She will help you avoid pitfalls and help you make the best decisions for your situation. She certainly goes "above and beyond" in every step of the way. She is the BEST!!! She uses Docusign which I really liked - but above she is trustworthy. You can relax with her on your side. Mary is the best! She helped me find an investment property and find a renter to fill it as well. She uses electronic signatures service which is extremely convenient. Her hard work, local knowledge, and ethical principles make her the best agent in the area.
Nipomo, CA
Mary was a joy to work with throughout the entire process! Her dedication and thoroughness made the house buying process much less stressful. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a true real estate professional.
Los Osos, CA
We strongly recommend Mary to buyers looking right now. We sort of hurled ourselves into the market seeking more square footage than what we had for family reasons. We found Mary after already having an offer severely rejected on a home we loved via another realtor we cold called last minute to assist us. Unlike the first realtor, the moment we linked up with Mary, we felt steady and steered. She has her finger on the pulse of the market, once she's on the case, she persists on your behalf. Her communication practice is stellar, negotiation skills are magical, really. We came into the market with our cash stuck in our home (which was for sale by owner). Mary not only found us our dream home, but helped us purchase our current home with escrow falling a mere day off from the sale of our prior property, miraculous statistically. The best way I can describe working with Mary is that everything works out. Having her in your court is like working with a family member toward the same goal. She advised us every step of the way with expertise and efficiency. She absolutely reminded us why it's so important to not just have a professional on your team, but to have the best professional. Because of her my family can start a new chapter in the home we really needed. Thank you Mary, We love ya!
Mary was fantastic! She was on top of everything that was going on and kept the process moving quickly. Very knowledgable about the housing market. She goes the extra mile for her clients and made several trips to my workplace for me to review and sign documents. Excellent customer service. She made arrangements for carpet cleaning, was on site when utilities were turned on, took care of minor repairs that needed to be handled. Mary goes above and beyond what I expected from a real estate agent. I highly recommend her.
Morro Bay, CA
Mary Mitchell made buying our future retirement home in Morro Bay a simple and easy experience. She is very knowledgeable of the area and really took the time to understand what we were looking for and then searched for houses that met our requirements. Since we live out of the area, she was extremely accommodating in working with our schedules and was always quick to return phone calls and email. We had not found this at another agency, so Mary was quite refreshing to us. As I told my wife, we learned more from Mary in one day than we had in the past 12 months using the other agent. Mary works predominately with buyers and she did an excellent job looking out for our best interests with the seller, seller’s agent, our loan officer, and our escrow officer. She expeditiously worked with us on the many, many items that must be completed during a purchase and always had excellent advice and recommendations concerning those items. In addition, Mary was very helpful in answering the seller’s questions since the seller often could not reach their own agent once a sale’s price had been agreed to. I felt this helped our interests because it kept the seller happy and the sale moving forward through escrow. If you are ready to become a home owner in San Luis Obispo County, I highly recommend you use Mary Mitchell as your agent.

In December 2008, Marilyn and I purchased the house of our dreams with the assistance of Mary. Prior to obtaining the services of Mary, we had looked at numerous properties with other realtors for a minimum of a 12 month period. We met Mary as we looked at one of her listings in July 2007. For the following 12-15 months, Mary continued to show us properties. Mary accommodated our availability and was always delighted to show additional properties. After identifying the home we wished to purchase, Mary worked closely with the seller's agent and seller to complete our closing. We recommend Mary highly, consider Mary a friend and have confidence in Mary's knowledge of the coastal real estate.
