Hello, I am Ophelia Angelone. As a Florida native and a daughter of Florida pioneers, I have found Indian River County to be the best place to live and raise a family. This is due to its top rated school system, pristine beaches and quiet countryside. I have always been very involved in our community, and enjoy all the pleasures it has to offer. Presently, I am involved with several local charities including Sebastian Rotary, Sebastian Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Council of Realtors, and The Chum Bucket as well as an all around soccer mom. I have three wonderful children and three grandchildren. My daughter is a graduate of FSU, and a Realtor in my office, my oldest son is a graduate of UCF and currently at Stetson University in Law School, and my youngest is at Sebastian River High School.
As a former health care provider, I have learned the value of being compassionate and attentive towards others. This, along with many dedicated years of being a real estate professional has placed me in the top 10% of all agent in the county when it comes to helping clients buy or sell property. I hold multiple professional certifications furthering my dedication to helping and assisting you. Whether buying or selling, I promise to be as committed to you in servicing your real estate needs as I am to my family and career. It is my goal to become more than just your agent, as it would be an honor to become your friend and help in any way that I can. My friends call me “Opey”, so let’s start now by giving me a call.
Tiffany Buckels, Realtor
Born and raised in Florida, graduated from Florida State University and called Fort Lauderdale home for over a decade after college. As a graduate of the Dedman School of Hospitality, service has always been at the center of everything I do. I truly believe service is the price you pay for the space you occupy.
After purchasing our first home and relocating to the Treasure Coast, where my husband and I both grew up, I have found my passion in helping others do the same. I am a busy Mom of three small children and serve at their school, our church, and in our community. As a Florida native I have explored countless miles of our beautiful state and I am always excited to discover new places. I have been a licensed agent in Florida since 2007.
I am a Kappa Kappa Gamma Alumni and an active member in our alumni association here in Indian River County. I recently joined our Sebastian Chamber of Commerce and Women’s Council of Realtors. The treasure coast is HOME to me and my family and I look forward to helping you find your HOME here too!

Kathy Pickering, Realtor
Originally from Long Island, New York, I have been a Realtor in the south Florida real estate market for almost two decades. We relocated from Fort Lauderdale to Vero Beach seeking a more tranquil, tropical location to finally plant roots—deep roots. I am in love with this particular slice of paradise and am excited to serve my buyers in acquiring the perfect home to enhance their lifestyle and our neighborhoods. I believe that communities thrive with happy residents, and happiness begins at home.
Living on the east coast of Florida for twenty years, I have a tremendous appreciation for the lure and mystique Florida living holds for its residents and individuals who come from all compass points to either increase their financial portfolio with the perfect real estate investment(s) or pursue their dreams while improving quality of life for themselves and their families. The Treasure Coast offers an outstanding relaxed, resort lifestyle environment for achieving these ideals. I take pride in my ability to quickly assess my buyers’ criteria while creating an atmosphere of unquestioned comfort and confidence in targeting the exact residence to suit their needs.
I have two, wonderful grown sons in whom I take tremendous pride. My goal (and they know it and humor me) is to eventually get them to relocate from the northeast to live closer to “Momma”. Meanwhile, I continually pinch myself for living this amazing vacation lifestyle in Vero Beach while working alongside my neighbors. I love the adventure of matching buyers from all walks of life to their perfect Florida home. It’s a win-win situation for buyers, sellers and our neighborhoods.

Specializing in residential and rentals, her real estate career began in 2003. Let Mariela share all of her knowledge with you and show how amazing Indian River could be for your family!

I relocated to the Midwest expanding my real estate services to include all three states for a span of 18 years. Offering my customers and clients both old and new knowledge with their choice to relocate. I’m a mother of three adult children and a grandmother. I enjoy reading, water activities, cooking and spending time with my family. I joined Action Realty because of their dedication, passion and loyalty to each other, customers and clients. I list, sell, rent and manage real estate as if it was my own…never for the sale, always from the heart.

Chip Powers, Realtor
I consider myself a true Floridian. While my children and grandchildren can make that claim, I take a small liberty in saying it. I relocated to Florida at a very young age and have enjoyed fishing and playing golf while living in paradise.
As a successful business owner the majority of my life, I have learned that the key to my success was to work hard, truly listen to my client’s needs, as well as providing consistent communication and follow through. I have carried these building blocks over into my real estate career which began in 2002 when I obtained my real estate license.
Buying or selling a home is one of the largest financial decisions one makes in life and I am here to help navigate you successfully through that process whether you are a first time home buyer or are in the luxury market. I recognize and value the trust my clients put in me and strive every day to exceed their expectations. As a full service Realtor, I have the integrity, knowledge and ability to make your home buying or selling process as fun, easy and stress-free as possible. Whether you are selling, hopefully to stay in the area as my neighbor, or buying your piece of paradise as a new neighbor, we as a team will meet or exceed your goals and that will create new smiles in paradise.
I look forward to working with you!
