A little about me

and why I love real estate

A little about me

Hello there! Mike Mitchell here, REALTOR® and Principal Broker with South and Company Properties. I’m a God-fearing man, husband, father, and veteran of little league ball games, show choir performances, and beauty pageants.

My hobbies and time away from work are a direct compliment to my career as a land professional. I spend a lot of time on my farm and in the woods while filming and photographing wildlife, raising a garden, making improvements to the land, and anything that involves a tractor, chainsaw, and a good fire.

My love for the outdoors goes back to my childhood of running lines on the river and trying to keep up with my Papaw and big brother while chasing deer, squirrels, and rabbits through the Pascagoula River bottoms and the piney woods of south Mississippi. I still love to deer hunt and have recently found myself addicted to quack with a growing passion for duck hunting. There is something about calling them in and watching my Yellow Lab, Drake work the retrieves. Although big bucks and greenhead ducks get me fired up, my greatest enjoyment in the outdoors is spending time with my son, Riley where we experience memories that will last a lifetime.

Why I love real estate

Real estate is a second career for me. Before diving in as a profession, I invested in land as a means of retirement savings while traveling throughout the southeastern United States providing network design, consulting, and engineering services in the Telecommunications industry. Truth be told, the land investments turned to hobby where the hands-on improvements became my pastime. The pastime turned to passion and now passion to licensed profession where I am truly blessed to enjoy a successful career in real estate with a great team of folks here at South and Company Properties!

So that is me in short

You can get to know me a little better through Facebook and Instagram. I hope you find that we share some common ground and that I am the perfect fit to assist you and your family with all your real estate needs. When you finish snooping me on social media, please know there is a personal invite waiting. Texts are great, but I would genuinely love to meet you. Pick up the phone and give me a call, so I can get to work for you!

Highly likely to recommend

“My wife and I were very pleased with South & Company Properties. When we were looking at making a land purchase but had no idea where to start, Mike was very helpful and walked us through the process, made it much less stressful, he tended to us and made time for us with the smallest of details. Even up until the closing date, he kept in touch and made sure everything was to our liking and understanding. He made recommendations for any/all areas we might would need. Between South and Company & our lender, they made it a seamless transition for an otherwise "scary and complicated" ordeal. I have and will continue to recommend South and Company to others, very professional, and hopefully in the future we will be able to conduct business with them again.”

“My wife and I bought a home through South and Company. With buying a home, it can be very stressful but the people with South and Company were so helpful and accommodating that it turned out to be a very nice experience. The knowledge and openness made us feel confident in our transaction. Also, there was never any pressure to purchase indicating to me that they were as much concerned about you being happy with your decision as closing the deal. They earn an A+ report.”

“Michael is “Top of the Line” in my books. My family (Daughdrill Farms) had 400 acres for sale in Jefferson Davis County, and Michael worked like it was his property he was selling. This man goes above and beyond the call to take care of his clients. I highly recommend him if you are in the market to buy or if you’re selling. GREAT JOB.”

“This has to be said. This realtor is certainly the best you can ask for. Michael Mitchell acts like the property is his very own. He is careful, thorough and knowledgeable. He finds the right buyer if he is working for the seller. If he is representing the buyer, he is watching out for your best interest. If he represents both, he makes sure everyone is treated fairly and again like it is his property. Michael is professional and patient as well. In my case he was working with 5 Sellers. There was never a bump in the road. He works hard and you can tell he truly loves what he does. His customers mean a lot to him. If you want someone who will work hard for you and truly care about you and your property, he is the one to call. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family. This could have been a very daunting experience but you made it easy. God bless you and your family.”
