Sales: Team Celli, RE/MAX Metro

Renee Celli’s experience in selling new construction in urban settings adds to her team’s overall expertise. She understands the process from top to bottom and is going to be there every step of the way to ensure a smooth transaction. She welcomes the opportunity to work with buyers seeking an affordable downtown lifestyle.

When Renee first moved to this area in 1997 from Fort Lauderdale, she saw the amazing potential that St. Petersburg offered. Through a series of contacts, she was involved in several “firsts” for real estate in downtown St. Petersburg. She worked with local architect Tim Clemmons on Straub Court, one of the first new construction projects in the city’s downtown core. Since then, she has worked with various builders on several new construction projects, such as Delmar Villas, Eagle’s Court, Las Ventanas, Arlington Lofts and Charles Court, to name a few.

She has been a licensed Realtor for more than 27 years and was given a Lifetime Achievement Award from RE/MAX in 2015. She is involved in commercial real estate in downtown St. Petersburg, bringing new businesses to St. Petersburg’s burgeoning retail, office and arts districts, as well. Team Celli is dedicated to providing exceptional service in every transaction they touch.
