About Mickey Arruda

Mickey Arruda REALTOR® A true Florida native, Mickey grew up in Ruskin (just south of Riverview), fishing Tampa Bay’s flats and golfing at some of Florida’s premier courses. Mickey pursued a degree in Industrial Engineering and graduated from USF in 2003. Instead of continuing down the engineering path, Mickey found the career (and girl) of his dreams in the world of real estate. From there, it was only a matter of time until he found a way to marry his knowledge and passion for Tampa’s real estate market with his love and experience for true Florida living. He found a way to marry the girl too. Of all his passions, commitments and loves, there is none greater to him than his relationship with God—to whom he gives all glory, honor and praise, and his family. He is a proud and patient papa of three girls and a husband to his business partner, fishing bud, golf caddy and personal chef, Erin. Erin Arruda REALTOR® Born and raised in Brandon, Erin’s knowledge and experience in the Tampa area is a rarity. Erin literally watched Brandon grow up around her. When she was born, Highway 60 was just a two-lane road with only one flashing streetlight! Like Mickey, Erin is also a proud USF alum, graduating with a degree in English. From there she landed a job in real estate, and found her niche! She and Mickey were business partners with their former employer, where eventually a better partnership blossomed. And as the saying goes, first came love, then marriage, then, of course, babies! Love and marriage led her from the exciting and fulfilling world of real estate, to the exhausting (yet far more fulfilling) world of wifedom and motherhood. While her priority is to stay at home with their three girls, she is grateful to take a break from folding laundry and wiping noses to partner with Mickey in their ever- growing business.
