An only child to Coy and Peggy Blackwell, Mitzi will not hesitate to tell you that real estate chose her-she sold real estate while in college and it just clicked-and here we are twenty plus years and THOUSANDS of home sales later. Strongly self-motivated, she is determined to achieve the best that she can at whatever she does. With an inner passion to make a great start for her children in real estate – not so ironically, Blake and Brice already think they sell real estate. All this, combined with a deep love for real estate that is at its pinnacle, and seeing people smile as they reach across a closing table for the keys to their new home sincerely makes Mitzi the happiest.
