Doug Mirabelli has joined Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors as a full-time sales associate working out of the 522 East Front Street office.
Prior to joining Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors, Mirabelli played professional Baseball, winning two World Series with the Boston Red Sox. A native of Las Vegas, Nevada, Mirabelli met his now wife, Kristin while both were attending Wichita State, where she was an All-American Softball Player. They have been residents of Traverse City for the past 5 years, and have three children.
Having passed his real estate exam and joined the Traverse Area Association of REALTORS, Mirabelli is now engaging in an entirely different version of spring training than in years past, namely the extensive training that Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors requires of all its new sales associates. Mirabelli expects that his real estate career will allow him to support the youth of the region, and plans to direct a portion of his earnings toward funding his Catch Em All Foundation, which focuses on increasing youth opportunities in the Grand Traverse area.
"We're happy to have Doug Mirabelli join our company," said Ken Schmidt, CEO of Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors. "He obviously has a drive to succeed and a willingness to work hard to achieve his goals." Schmidt first contacted Mirabelli after he retired from baseball, having noted the success that other professional athletes had achieved working with other Coldwell Banker Brokers around the country.
