Company History

When you choose our Dickens Mitchener team, you are putting your trust in the most talented, experienced and technologically savvy Realtors® in the Charlotte region. We are committed to setting new standards for extraordinary customer service as well as providing our clients with intimate community knowledge and expertise. We’ve spent more than 20+ years perfecting our unique and effective business method to become your best source for residential real estate.

In 1991, our founders Vicky Mitchener and Al Dickens set out to create a real estate agency unlike any other in the Charlotte region. Already highly successful agents in their own right, they wanted to create an agency that would simplify the entire transaction process, while simultaneously providing clients with the ultimate real estate buying or selling experience. After assembling a team of the area’s most knowledgeable professionals, our leaders then integrated the use of the latest technologies and most advanced marketing concepts to create a business platform based on shared information and team communication. They installed computers for data management, a revolutionary upgrade in 1991, and they also implemented a shared marketing program that each agent could access for self-promotion. This thoughtful approach to agent support quickly translated into sales success and established Dickens Mitchener as Charlotte’s best source for residential real estate.

Today, our Dickens Mitchener team is comprised of more than 85 experienced real estate professionals who have mastered the latest trends of the ever-changing market and are dedicated to making every transaction as seamless as possible. In June 2016 we proudly opened a second office in South Charlotte to better serve our trusted clients and to meet the increasing demand. Our agents are full-time experts who set the region’s standard for innovative practices, client satisfaction and outstanding results. With diverse backgrounds in business, law, sales, interior design, finance, and even nursing, each one of our agents bring a unique skill-set to the table. We are true neighborhood specialists, who have intimate knowledge of the region’s most outstanding properties in Charlotte’s most sought-after neighborhoods—from Ballantyne and Belmont to Myers Park and Lake Norman. When you choose our team, you get access to more than 6,000 resale listings through the Carolina Multiple Listing Service as well as an up-to-the minute database of new listings, home developments and homes for sale by owner.
