Founder, Town Center Real Estate - Pettit Realty Group
Debra Pettit, founder of The PETTIT REALTY GROUP, began her real estate career when her youngest daughter went to college in 2010. Specializing in farm and ranch and country subdivisions in Northern Collin and Grayson Counties, Debra is just as comfortable listing and selling metroplex properties. Clients and others say she is a tireless worker, friendly helper, knowledgeable, caring, and say, "she knows everyone!". She proudly works under the brokerage of Paragon Realtors, and is dba Town Center Real Estate, Pettit Realty Group in Van Alstyne, Texas. Paragon Realtors is strongly established throughout Dallas, Sherman, and Denison, Texas. The PETTIT REALTY GROUP is a cohesive team of active agents who all live in the Van Alstyne area. Debra, Randy, Casey, Charli, Jana, Ginney, Kimberly and Amy are the faces representing PETTIT REALTY GROUP across Collin & Grayson Counties. Debra truly believes that, “We are stronger together.”
Debra and her family moved to Van Alstyne (north of McKinney) 15 years ago after living in the Lake Highlands area of Dallas for 15 years. It wasn't just a move, it was a lifestyle change. Little did she know how quickly Van Alstyne and the resulting relationships would own her heart. Those relationships launched, and continue to cultivate, her real estate career. She enjoys introducing "city folks" to North Texas by connecting them to community and quality country living. Her experience of moving from the city has proved valuable when helping families find "their next front porch" in North Texas. Claiming dual citizenship in Van Alstyne and Dallas, she still loves selling city properties as well. Fun fact, Debra's daughters are 5th generation Dallasites.
Debra is well known and recognizable for her online marketing. She enjoys finding creative and effective ways to promote her listings. Debra's online promotion has been key in making her the top listing and selling agent for several years in the Van Alstyne ISD area, the Top Producer in all of Grayson County in 2018, as well as a D Magazine Top Producer. Her knowledge of local school districts, upcoming building projects and city plans has been instrumental in answering clients many questions when relocating their family. She is a constant student of the market. It is very helpful that her husband is a real estate appraiser, his knowledge and perspective of the market has been invaluable.
Outside of real estate, Debra currently serves on the Van Alstyne ISD Education Foundation Board, the Van Alstyne Chamber of Commerce, VAHS Campus Improvement Board and she is a member of CCAR and has her GRI designation. She and her husband serve as Small Group leaders for young families in their church. She graduated from Lake Highlands High School and Baylor University where she was a Journalism major, a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma and was on the Swim Team. She has taught swimming lessons every summer since 1977.
