The housing market has been in a slump the last few years. Apparently, no one told Mark Lee’s team over at Levin-Rinke Resort Realty. And they have run away with top-seller accolades for the past five years.

Lee’s team consists of himself, Cherry Fitch and Gary Michaels. They know how to sell a house.

“It’s kind of basic,” explained Michaels. “You just take care of your customers.”

After years away, Lee returned in 2000 to practice realty in his hometown. He had grown up in East Hill and on Pensacola Beach. He is now the managing broker for Levin-Rinke.

Fitch began working with Lee in 2006. It was a second career after 35 years in the Gulf Breeze school system. She had been a teacher, a guidance counselor, an assistant principal and, finally, a principal. In her final year working in education, she was named as Principal of the Year.

“The two of them are like best friends, brother and sister,” Michaels said of Lee and Fitch. “They just compliment each other. Sometimes they’re like twins.”

Michaels joined Fitch and Lee in 2007 after retiring from the health care industry. He worked in numerous elderly-care facilities throughout the state.

“I think I left a record of 5-Star facilities,” Michaels said.

Michaels said that both his and Fitch’s former occupations were geared toward caring for others. He said that both had similar values when it came to contributing to one’s community.

“It gets tiresome, but it’s so rewarding,” he explained.
