Anita Nieves


Client Services Director
Licensed Realtor®

B.S., Criminal Justice

As Director of Client Services for The Kitchell Group, Anita has been instrumental in the growth and success of the team since she joined in April 2012. The glue that holds the team together, she does whatever it takes to ensure our clients have a positive and successful transaction. From managing the all-important role of compliance for the buyer and seller transactions (meticulous with contract paperwork!), office management for our brokerage, to easing the concerns of our clients and getting their questions answered, she takes a personal interest in each client from the initial contact right until the close of the deal. Anita has closed 360+ files in the past 9 years for our clients. She is a licensed Realtor® , a great resource and always available to assist our staff and clients in any way possible.


As a Legal Secretary and Paralegal, Anita focused on Criminal Law, Civil Law, Personal Injury and Family Law for 10 years until she changed tracks in 2001 when she helped run a family-owned, local mortgage company. As the Compliance Manager, she was in charge of making sure all of the loan applications and files met strict federal requirements. She was also in charge of training and assisting new loan officers. As a Real Estate Investor, she has experience with both the purchase and sale sides of the business.

Her friendly and peaceful demeanor has a calming effect on clients at a time that can be very stressful and challenging – the buying or selling of their home. No small wonder that she is so highly rated on Angie’s List and highly regarded by her fellow Realtors® as a compliance resource as well.


Born in New York City, Anita moved to Tampa when she was 18. She is engaged to Dave and they have three daughters – two at Florida State Univ. (Go Noles!!) and one at the Univ. of Central Florida (Go Knights!!). Anita was Co-troop leader for many years, leading their troop to #1 in cookie sales out of 38 troops in the region through her motivational and organizational skills. A role model and mentor for many young girls, her impact will carry with them throughout their lives. If you need any inside scoop on any of the above, she is a terrific resource!
