Download the article A Legacy of Service in a printable PDF format.
When real estate pioneer Judge B. Fite founded his real estate, mortgage and insurance company in 1937, he launched a tradition that spans over seven decades of service and commitment to the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex.
Throughout its rich history of growth, expansion, mergers and acquisitions, the Judge Fite Company has remained consistently true to its founding ideals.
In 1962 Dene Fite joined her husband Judge in the company and in 1975, two of Judge and Dene’s children, Jan Fite Miller and Jim Fite, started managing the company using the values taught to them by their parents. At the time, Judge Fite Company had one office and eight people (including Jim and Jan). In 1977, Judge Fite Company opened a second office, and by 1986, the company had grown to thirty associates and staff. During the worst eight years in the Texas real estate industry, 1986-1993, Judge Fite Company continued to grow and prosper.
