Lead Buyer Agent for The Kitchell Group, selling 150+ homes – helped 60+ buyer clients find their dream home in the past 3 years alone! Renee is a full-time Realtor and specializes in residential sales throughout Tampa Bay from Tampa to Land O’Lakes to South Tampa, St. Pete, Tarpon Springs, Riverview, Brandon, Parrish and more! She is an expert in NEW CONSTRUCTION and holds multiple certifications, including the New Home Co-Broker (NHCB), Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), Military Relocation Professional (MRP), and Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) certifications. She negotiates many extras for both her resale and new construction buyer clients and has avoided many potential issues.


Renee joined The Kitchell Group in May 2013 bringing with her an impressive 20 years of experience in corporate retail management, including a role as District Sales Manager across several states for a major national retail franchise, where she was nationally recognized for consistently generating double-digit sales growth for over 10 years.

Inspired by her commercial real-estate success in scouting retail locations as District Sales Manager and her award-winning sales results, Renee decided to bring her energy full-time to real estate. A prudent decision, since she ranked among the top 30 agents at her former office of Keller Williams Tampa Properties multiple times since joining the team in 2013 and has closed 170+ homes.

She continues to be top-rated on Angie’s List as well, receiving rave reviews for her customer service and real estate knowledge. When it comes to her clients, Renee puts herself in her buyer’s shoes to find the right house that they can call home. She works enthusiastically on her clients’ behalf to provide the smoothest buying experience possible. A “Go-getter”, as our clients fondly refer to her, she keeps her clients charged and energizes the team with her dynamism and drive.

Renee is an active member of the National Association of Realtors, Florida Association of Realtors, the Greater Tampa Bay Association of Realtors, Gamma Phi Beta Alumni Association, Florida Jeep Girl Club and Alonso Booster Club.

She is a strong advocate for her clients, especially during the contract negotiation and inspection processes – which are paramount to buying clients. She is well versed with area schools and new construction all across Tampa Bay.


A veritable treasure trove of information, Renee has lived in Tampa since 1982, and there is little about this city, or Florida in general, that she does not know. Steve, her husband of 24 years and Kaitlyn, her 16 yr. old daughter, as well as the Team will bear testament to that fact. If you have any questions about schools, restaurants, Girl Scouts, club and school soccer, kids activities or just anything about Tampa that Siri might not know, ask Renee!
