Carmel Realty Company was founded in 1913, predating the incorporation of the City of Carmel. For four generations since then, the Mitchell family has been a leader in the real estate market in Carmel and Pebble Beach. When they sold their billion-dollar real estate company, The Mitchell Group, to Sotheby’s International Realty in August 2005, Dan and Shelly Mitchell Lynch purchased Carmel Realty Company in order to continue its century of quality and rich tradition as local, luxury real estate experts. The goal was to remain local business owners and to maintain the family’s impeccable position in the local real estate market. Carmel Realty Company is the oldest real estate company in Carmel with a rich history and heritage of being family-owned and a reputation for integrity, longevity, and excellence. Our longevity is no accident. It is an incredible brand and brand name.
