As for the “Fite” of Midgett & Fite, Jeneva’s father Dewey Fite was 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 as a broker. Never one to pass on a good opportunity and noting a market need, our successful investment partnership, Midgett & Fite, began offering brokerage services in 2011, and Dewey was our first Principal Broker. After a long and fruitful career, Dewey retired his license in 2014 at the age of 96.

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 was 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 he received other awards and honors for his service to his clients and to the real estate industry.  Dewey passed away in 2017, and we continue to miss his wit, his sage wisdom, and we value the Real Estate training and leadership he proffered.
