About Us


We sell real estate, and we’re good at it. We listen carefully and talk straight – believing that’s how we can best serve you.

The SIMMS Team is led by Sharon Simms, a full time REALTOR® in St. Petersburg, Florida, since 1986. She is joined by son Rob Johnson, daughter Tami Simms and supported by Strategic Execution Officer, Amy Dinovo.

Education and active participation in professional organizations are very important to us (see details below). Each team member has real estate designations as well as a college education. Sharon and Tami are often quoted by the media, invited to speak around the country, and Tami is a Trainer for the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.

As an extended family, we bring unique talents to the team, but each of us is familiar with every client and the status of their search and transactions. Sharon, Rob and Tami work directly with buyers and sellers, each offering unique talents and personalities to match our clients’ needs. (All sales production is reported under Sharon’s name, in case you’re looking.) Amy keeps all of us in line, managing our technology and making sure that every deadline is met and every detail is taken care of.

Where We Live Is Where We Work: We enjoy living in this beautiful waterfront community, which encompasses small towns with unique character; cities with dynamic activities, arts, entertainment and recreation; a warm climate with lots of sunshine, and a thriving business community. Our office is in the heart of vibrant downtown St. Petersburg, and we cover areas that are within a 45 minute commute of the main work centers of Pinellas County, from the Gateway / Carillon area to downtown St. Petersburg.
