Patty and Doug Johnson combine their many talents into a full-service real estate agent team. This husband and wife of over 30 years offer a knowledgeable perspective that can aid anyone from first-time buyers to veteran investors. Doug, a former home inspector, and Patty, a former teacher, compliment one another beautifully. Originally from south Alabama, they are long-time residents of Hampton Roads by choice and know all the reasons this region is special. It's easy to detect this team's enthusiasm for not only the industry, but more importantly the clients themselves.

Both graduates of University of South Alabama, these two bring educational backgrounds in elementary education, graphic design and marketing to the table. Patty improved her communication and project management skills during her 18 years in the classroom teaching grade schoolers, while Doug worked in graphic design and marketing. The duo worked in ministry too. Patty helped establish a church as a volunteer, and Doug became a children's minister. Doug also flipped homes, and as he completed most of the improvements himself, his knowledge grew exponentially with each property he acquired, renovated and sold. This team now has a creative approach that allows them to look at what a property can become, not just the condition it may be in currently.

Doug ran a home inspection franchise successfully for five years. He says, "I had to develop the business from the ground up, and market myself so people would want me to do their home inspections." Patty began working in a new home community after earning her real estate license. "I learned a lot about new construction, and that there is always room for negotiation," she says. Doug became one of the nation's top 10 producers within the organization while Patty discovered she had a knack for helping buyers choose economical home options that could add the most value. He sums up the team's philosophy, "I like helping people, and want to make their lives better anyway I can."

Clients get a wealth of experience when house hunting with this remarkable team. Doug explains, "I know what pitfalls to avoid, and can see things that may not be readily noticeable to the average homebuyer." The two like showing homes and figuring out what properties can mesh well with buyers' distinct personalities. Patty compares finding the right home to treasure hunting, "Even though it's someone else's treasure, knowing I helped is very fulfilling." They assist many types of clients, but truly enjoy helping those new to home buying. "Patty and I have a way of educating buyers and making them confident and comfortable with the buying process."

As the proud parents of a son who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, this couple has a better understanding of service members and their families on the lookout for new homes. Patty holds our military members and their loved ones in high regard. "I have a great compassion for them," she continues, "I appreciate their service, whether they are actually in the military or the family members of those in the military." Helping these esteemed members find suitable housing where they can feel safe and comfortable is one way Doug and Patty like to give back.

Although these personable agents spend many hours of the day helping clients attain their real estate goals, this team makes the most of any down time. Doug is an outdoorsman who likes hunting and sports, especially college football; he is also known to play a practical joke every so often. Patty likes solving crossword and SuDoku puzzles. She may also be found with her nose in a book if time permits. Spending quality time with family and friends is also important to these devoted grandparents. Doug and Patty live in Suffolk with their family.


Testimonies

FIT Realty is head and shoulders above the real estate competition. My wife and I had our home on the market for 6 months in 2014 with another company and were forced to take it off the market before we moved from the Hampton Roads area. While we realize the market fluctuates over time, we found it was the FIT Realty aggressive marketing and access to buyer traffic that made the difference. Moreover, Doug and Patty Johnson are the best realtors in the business! Their personal dedication and attention to detail made it possible to sell our home in less than two months in 2015, all while we were living in another state. Their knowledge of the area is without equal. They approach the sale of your home as if it was their very own. They were always available, day and night, seven days a week! Our situation was as complicated as it gets since we had tenants in the property. They handled everything personally, to include arranging repairs and preparations for final closing, and their negotiations with the buyer's realtor were critical to final agreement. I would use no other company in the area!
