Real Living Pittman Properties Celebrates 40 Years in Business
Raleigh, NC-based brokerage is a longtime community mainstay.
RALEIGH, N.C. - May 23, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Real Living Real Estate, one of the nation's leading real estate franchisors and a member of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage networks, today congratulated Real Living Pittman Properties on celebrating 40 years in local business.
Pittman Properties was founded in 1976 as an independent brokerage by George Pittman and his partner Jud Ammons. The brokerage originally operated as Ammons Pittman Real Estate. In 1989, George’s wife of 44 years, Lou Ann Pittman joined the day-to-day operation of the business. Today, the company has more than 40 agents who serve the Raleigh, Wake Forest, Knightdale, Apex, Cary, Holly Springs and Northern Wake County areas of North Carolina.
“We’re proud to survive and prosper for 40 years,” said George Pittman, who credits the company’s strong reputation among clients as a primary reason for its ongoing success. “The two key words that sum up the way we do business are the same today as they were decades ago: honesty and integrity,” he said. “We’ve been through 17% mortgage rates and now 2-3% mortgage rates but we adapt because we always stay true to our core values.”
Lou Ann Pittman added that the brokerage’s longevity is also a testament to the loyalty of its agents and their deep community ties. “A lot of our agents and several members of our staff have been with us more than 20 years, so we’ve built solid, lasting relationships with them,” she explained. “Additionally, George served as president of the Raleigh Board of REALTORS®, and has received many awards such as REALTOR® of the Year in 1989, and his induction into the Raleigh REALTOR® Hall of Fame in 2008. He has also been active as a past North Carolina Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee Chairman among other association positions, so he knows the local real estate community well and they know him.”
George Pittman’s commitment to serving his community underscores the philosophy of the entire brokerage. “Our agents operate on a true spirit of cooperation,” he said. “At our company we understand that if we win, together we all win.”
Robert McAdams Jr., president of Real Living Real Estate, applauded Pittman Properties’ milestone. “This achievement is a testament to a hard-working, honest team that truly cares for and proudly serves the local community,” he said. “We’re honored to call them a member of our Real Living family.”
Real Living Pittman Properties is based at 10224 Durant Rd., Raleigh, NC 27614; 919-277-4622.
