About Agent Pitts….43 years and 1000 plus closed sales!
FIRST A LITTLE HISTORY…..In 1976, when I entered the real estate world, women with children younger than high school age could not hold a real estate license. There were no mobile phones (or even answering machines), certainly no computers, MLS online listing service. The new listings were posted in a huge catalog every other week, and we all hung around in the old Board of Realtors parking lot waiting for The Big Book delivery truck.
We agents spent more time with our customers and each other and eventually learned the things that can’t be taught. That a home is so much more than a place to live. And finding the right house for your buyer or preparing and finding a buyer for your listing is just the beginning.
The road to the closing table is paved with pitfalls. Things can and do go wrong, and you need the agent who knows how to recognize a problem, knows the solution, and gets you to the closing table, all the time keeping all parties informed and on track. A sense of humor helps, too. That’s just how I do it and have done it, and why I’m still selling AND closing after all these years!
I’m a lifelong Memphian and longtime life member of the Multi-Million Dollar Club of the Memphis Area Association of REALTORS. Not an easy feat when the average house sold for $50,000. $100,000 house meant the owners were famous! I sell in Downtown, Midtown, East Memphis, and somewhat beyond, and if I can’t find it, you probably shouldn’t buy it!!!
Always active in my profession and in the community, I am a graduate of East High School. I attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where I was on the Dean’s List. I also attended Rhodes College, and, later, University of Memphis, with my major, English. I was granted an Associated Press internship and wrote for the old Press Scimitar evening paper from the summers of my high school years and later full time. I actually worked until the day my first daughter (Molly Adams) was born. She now lives with her family in Los Angeles and is the President of Caleres, an off-shoot of The Brown Shoe Co. Remember Buster Brown shoes? And, Betsy Pitts, a chef/restaurateur, in Atlanta. Betsy’s Urban Pl8 was the first Paleo restaurant in the country!
I have served on the boards of VECA, my neighborhood associations and Concerts International, and I am a Eucharist Minister at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral. I also head up our family’s scholarship program for the winner of the annual Brooks’ Museum’s Junior Midsouth Arts Contest.
My husband, Harmon Dunathan, retired as Academic Dean of Rhodes College. We live with our friends, Zeus the Doberman and Helen Vookles, an elderly Lab, both rescues.
Ten years ago, I had the opportunity to join Marx-Bensdorf, REALTORS, the oldest and most distinguished firm in Memphis……FIRST in real estate since 1868. Their prestige, support, and resources have been terrific for my clients and me.
