Debra Pettit

“your front porch is waiting”

Debra Pettit, founder of the PETTIT GROUP and TOWN CENTER REAL ESTATE started her real estate career when her youngest daughter went to college in 2010. Specializing in farm and ranch and country subdivisions in North Texas, 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 Group in Van Alstyne, Texas. The Pettit group is a cohesive team of dynamic agents who all live in the Van Alstyne area. Debra stands firm, “We are stronger together.”

Debra and her family moved to Van Alstyne (north of McKinney) 16 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 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. She is a constant student of the market. It is helpful that her husband is a realtor as well as a real estate appraiser. His knowledge and perspective of the market has been invaluable. Debra's online resources have assisted in both securing and selling listings. Her unique personalized virtual tours have influenced more than one family to fall in love with a property before they actually visit. Those same virtual tours along with her Facebook page have proved valuable in introducing out of area buyers to the North Texas market. Her online promotion has been key in making her the top listing and selling agent for several years in the Grayson County area, as well as Top Producer recognized by D Magazine. 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 currently serves on the Van Alstyne ISD Education Foundation Board and is an officer of the Van Alstyne Chamber of Commerce. She is a member of CCAR and has her GRI designation. 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.
