Diane Mitchell


St. James, Southport, NC has truly captured my heart—it’s the perfect blend of living and working that made me choose to call it home.

Originally from CT, NY, and AZ, my family and I leaped to North Carolina, enticed by the warm, welcoming community, stunning sandy beaches, and the plethora of amenities that St. James and its surroundings offer.

Relocating can be a whirlwind, whether it’s across town or the country. But fear not—I bring over 35 years of experience in real estate to the table, ready to tirelessly work alongside you to achieve your home buying or selling goals.

Real estate isn’t just a job for me; it’s a passion. Over the years, I’ve honed my skills in listing, selling, renovating, and managing homes, consistently delivering stellar results in the ever-evolving real estate market. During my tenure with an international firm in AZ, I clinched several accolades, ranking among the top performers statewide and regionally in both sales and listings. My secret sauce? Listening intently to my clients’ needs and desires, then leveraging my expertise to find them their perfect abode.

When I’m not busy helping clients, you’ll likely find me whipping up delicious meals and hosting gatherings at home, orchestrating neighborhood shindigs, or indulging in my newest passion: cruising the ICW with my husband and our beloved Goldendoodle, Winnie. Let’s make your real estate dreams a reality!

  • My husband and I worked with Diane Mitchell when buying our home in St. James. We thought she was terrific - she was professional, very detail-oriented about St. James itself and the properties we were considering. and gave her opinion honestly. She was always responsive to communications. She made the purchase/closing extremely easy, managing the paperwork and set up of inspections efficiently, and taking some of the pressure off of us. Without hesitation, we would ask for Diane’s help in the future if we decided to buy or sell another property in the area. We highly recommend her.

  • Diane Mitchell served as our real estate agent for our recent purchase in St James. Her support, knowledge and attention was superb! Even after we moved in she provided us support as we were still living in Virginia. It was a pleasure working with Diane and all the great folks at St. James Properties.
