Ray Mihara

Broker and President of Mihara & Associates, Inc.

I've been in marketing and sales since I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Roger Williams University in 1990. I played hockey as a kid through and up to my four years of varsity university hockey and pursued my love for hockey into the business arena, where I was first involved in the promotion and advertising of the Buffalo Sabres professional hockey team. I moved to Tampa in 1992 to join the sales and marketing group of the then-newly-formed Tampa Bay Lightning. During my four years with the Lightning, I headed up a sales group that helped establish many national attendance records. I also served as a consultant in other sports-related enterprises, but as long as I can remember I have always had a special interest in real estate, where I found my greater calling.

I became a Realtor in 1996. I consistently performed as a Top Sales Agent with my former brokers from 1998 through 2011, and since 1998, I have maintained my ranking in the top 1% nationwide for sales volume. Now as an independent broker, I am working hard to establish Mihara & Associates, Inc. as the leading brokerage in the Real Estate community.

Perhaps because of my competitive nature, I'm in my comfort zone to do battle for my clients who are facing foreclosures. It takes patience and pure doggedness to deal successfully with banks overwhelmed with foreclosures. I feel I have become an expert in ways of getting my clients' homes sold. These sales have a rather special meaning to me; it feels very good to have helped my clients out of a very tough situation.

I really love selling real estate. I believe that home ownership is still the American Dream and an investment as well, and my knowledge, compassion and dedication are geared to make it happen for my clients. I work hard to have a positive impact on your experience towards the attainment of your home. And you can reach me anytime, day or night. I answer my phone calls and I respond to my e-mails. My cell phone is (813) 240-5255, and my e-mail address is RayMihara@aol.com.

Stephanie Parker

Stephanie is a true Floridian, born and raised in Tampa. She attended Florida State University and remains an avid Seminole football fan. Her first real estate experience began in a local real estate attorney's office in 2003. Being a quick learner, she soon transferred to the attorney's title company where she became proficient at processing. After only a year, she found her niche and began closing transactions. In 2011, she obtained her Title license and continued to flourish in the industry, becoming the Office Manager. Loving real estate, Stephanie changed gears in 2017, when she joined our firm, where her extensive title background and experience, along with her ability to multi-task and organize, make her a valuable asset for our team. With her tech experience and forte in problem solving, she is another go-to person for our office. Stephanie covets her family time, especially with her daughter and furry children. Her love for music is evident whether singing, playing piano or watching musicals at the theater. She enjoys playing basketball and volleyball, watching football and movies, volunteering at her church, camping, kayaking, and doing Math!

Cathy Renwick

Operations Director

A licensed Realtor since 1972, both as a Buyer's Agent and as a Listing Agent, Cathy was a multimillion dollar producer before joining Ray Mihara, P.A., the predecessor of Mihara & Associates, Inc., as Office Manager. Over the years she has assisted me, seamlessly, in implementing the services that we promise our customers and in carrying out our marketing programs. Indeed, because we have created Mihara & Associates, Inc. as a marketing-driven firm, whereby to a greater degree than other real estate brokerages we implement company-wide marketing strategies to increase the productivity of our sales associates, Cathy now focuses primarily on marketing as well as our overall operations. She is also one of our in-house techies because of her many years in the telecommunications and computer software industries as a Senior Documentation Analyst. Having lived in Tampa most of her life, she is familiar with the area's housing patterns, its history, its trends, and also its equine population. In fact, she is a past president of the Tampa Horse Show Association. However, Cathy does not confine her fondness for animals to just horses but is also great with cats, dogs, birds, and even ferrets.

I live and work in Buffalo, New York and was desperately looking to find a property for my parents to spend the Winter. I was telling my colleague Claire at work about my concern for my parents spending another Winter in Buffalo, so she told me about Ray. She said she knew Ray from high school and that they kept in touch. She offered to talk to Ray and from that day on, Ray was there for us! He offered us a lot of options until we found exactly what we were looking for. We were able to rely on Ray and his team for everything. We never even saw the house till after we paid and closed! We trusted Ray because of his professionalism and friendly nature. Ray advocated for us and treated us like family! He went and looked at the house, researched the property.  We were happy with his assessment and signed off on the sale; eventually when we were able to see the house a few weeks after closing we were very pleased! Ray and his team were very helpful and they made it very convenient for us with digital communications that fit our schedules. He even went with the inspector and sent us videos of any possible issues. A truly amazing experience. I still thank my colleague I work with every time I see her, for introducing us to Ray! Thank you Ray and team, we can't wait to buy our next house with you and your team!  Especially since my parents love the house so much now, they say they may never leave, so I need to find another house :-)
