Meet Bayshore to the Beaches Team

Water boat icon

Since moving to St Petersburg from Tampa in 2008, where I began my career in 1998, I have been fortunate enough to develop a diverse customer base and a highly experienced sales team of professional agents and brokers here in Pinellas County. We are a group who all share in my vision to give exceptional customer service each and every time, whether you’re a first-time buyer or now ready for that long-awaited dream home. We want to earn your business and keep it. Closing the Sale Does Not Mean Ending the Relationship!

As I tell my clients, “Not all water is created equal.” Our Team focuses primarily on waterfront properties, including Single Family Homes, Townhomes, and Waterfront Condominiums in many of the St. Petersburg neighborhoods, including The Old Northeast, Downtown, The Skyway Marina District, Tierra Verde, Pass-a-grille, as well as the beautiful Gulf Coast beach communities.

Our team's main goal is to make your Real Estate experience as pleasant as possible! Whether you are buying or selling, looking for a second home on the water, or relocating to beautiful Tampa Bay. We have been touted as one of the most highly recommended and competent Real Estate teams in the greater Tampa Bay area!

I am proud to have recently been chosen as one of the “10 Best” Real Estate Agents based on Experience and Customer Satisfaction by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals. I was one of the ABC Action News local area Real Estate experts from 2005-2009, appearing on several news segments through the years, and I also appeared on an episode of House Hunters with relocation buyers from Minnesota.

Since specializing in Relocation for so many years, I still have a vast knowledge of the entire Tampa area, and I Love being a matchmaker for my buyers moving to the Tampa Bay area.

I have earned several designations, including CRS, ABR CNE, SRES, and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist designations, in order to give my clients the best experience and knowledge that can be offered. If you have a buyer coming to the St Petersburg area (aka,” The Sunshine City”), please consider me and my "St Pete Team." I promise we will not disappoint you!

What Our Clients Say

My husband, Jim, and myself, Linda, would to take this opportunity to thank Debbie Zito in the sale of our home in Florida. She assisted us in so many ways and was so very helpful during the process of selling our home. If you are looking to buy or sell your home, we would highly recommend Debbie Zito!!

Linda Kennedy-McLean

Mark and Debbie truly went above and beyond. Hands down best experience I've ever had buying a home. They helped every step of the way. Very communicative and personable. Couldn't recommend using them enough.

Chris Corriveau

As a former realtor, I was pretty selective about choosing a realtor to work with. Deb was very knowledgeable, fun, honest, proactive. We were so happy we chose her to help us find our home. She gets our highest recommendations.

C&P LaRue

Debbie was there every step of the way. She was always available and approachable. Made a, normally stressful experience, much less so. Way to go Debbie!

Jean O Gildersleeve

Debbie was knowlegable and enthusiastic in listing my condo. The sale went smoothlhy and the results were as I expectd--very good.

Barbara Cook

Debbie went above and beyond for us! She showed us a good variety of condos, and pointed out many things to us that we were not aware of in purchasing a condo. She was great in negotiating when we did decide on one, and Karen was also so helpful. We would recommend them to anyone!

Mary E. Lea

Without referrals, I selected the best Realtors! Everything a seller (“snowbird”) needed to know, and more, was presented initially in unhurried detail. Getting crucial documents, for signatures, to me, thousands of miles away was not a problem for you. Thanks for patience answering procedural questions long distance. March to May! That’s great! I’m a very satisfied, happy “snowbird” seller. Thank you, thank you Debbie.  You are really the best.

Marjorie W. Carter

Debbie is the best realtor ever. I was so pleased with the attention she showed when selling our townhouse. She was extremely knowledgeable and proactive. She is a great negotiator.

She also was extremely helpful finding a great rental for me.

Debbie and Mark we're true professionals from the beginning. They put a plan in place and were able to execute on that plan. We had an above ask offer within a week. They ran all around town for us to get inspections and repairs completed and made the process very easy for me. If you're looking to buy or sell, stop looking and use Debbie and Mark. They will take great care of you and you will not be disappointed.
