Company History

 Midgett & Fite formed in 2003 as a real estate investment partnership and has thrived. In 2011 the firm opened their current offices at 312 South Maple Street, Suite B, Lebanon TN 37087, and offers Full Service Brokerage, Property Management and Real Estate Investment Services to their clients (these services having been formerly offered through another firm). Founded by Dewey J. Fite and Dan E. Midgett, II, Midgett & Fite is always ready to provide you with the best service and the best advice for your real estate needs. 

"Our goal is to provide excellent service and to treat every customer with respect." 

Dewey Fite is a legend in the local real estate industry, having served his clients for over 60 years. In 1955, Dewey and his brother Albert Fite formed the Fite Realty Company in Lebanon, TN. Dewey became principal broker and grew the firm to become a well-known icon in Wilson County. In 1983, Dewey sold his firm to Coldwell Banker, continuing as principal broker. Coldwell Banker eventually merged into Cumberland Real Estate, where Dewey remained a broker until 2011 when Midgett & Fite began offering brokerage services. After a long and fruitful career, Dewey retired his license in 2014 at the age of 96. Dewey continues to invest in real estate with his partners but (in his own words) he is "no longer buying green bananas".

Prior to his well-established career in real estate, Dewey was a chemist and systems analyst with DuPont Chemical. After WWII, Dewey returned to Middle Tennessee where he co-owned and operated the West Side Hotel Coffee Shop and eventually Dewey's Restaurant and Steak House. 

Dewey served as President of the Realtor's Association in 1970, and is a Lifetime Member of the $1,000,000 Sales Club. In 1995, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Board of Realtors. In 2007, he received the 20-year Achievement of Excellence, and has received other awards and honors for his service to his clients and to the real estate industry. 

Dan E. Midgett, II is currently the Managing Partner and Owner of Midgett & Fite. For almost 15 years, Dan is an award-winning real estate agent in Wilson County, having achieved the Gold Award of Excellence multiple times culminating in the Gold Life Award. Dan received his CCIM designation in 2008.

Dan's list of clients includes Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, AAA Self-Storage, and Farm Bureau Insurance Company, among others. Dan co-brokered finding a site for Publix in Lebanon and continues to help many local businesses. Dan has sold property worth over $20,000,000 since obtaining his license in 2003.

Prior to becoming a realtor, Dan practiced engineering for over 15 years with Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., The M.W. Kellogg Company (now Halliburton), and Exxon Corporation, where he designed and constructed cryogenic and processing plants to serve clients such as Woodside Petroleum, Shell Oil Company, Quantum Chemical, Exxon Chemical, ENAMI Copper, JGC Engineers, SIPM, and a host of other firms worldwide.

Jeneva Midgett, Dan's wife and Dewey's daughter, joined Midgett and Fite's team in 2012.  She obtained her real estate license in 2016 and is branching out to help the team. Jeneva is invaluable handling much of the behind the scenes work that has to be done but is rarely noticed by the public.


Jeneva has a background in teaching both in public and private schools. She home-schooled  her children and has helped other home-school families by teaching co-operative science and math classes.  Jeneva has been a great asset to the team so far and will continue to grow in her expanding role.
