Steve Fithian formed Visions Realty and Investment in California in 1988, while still holding the position as Controller for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Operation for California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Texas. Steve Fithian began dabbling in real estate in 1979, realizing that wealth-building through ownership and managing a portfolio of income-producing properties was tons of fun and financially rewarding, Fithian “flew the coop” from the corporate world and began concentrating on brokerage full-time. When the Fithian family moved from California to Texas in 1990, his brokerage business moved with them. Now operating as Visions Realty and Investments, Inc, the brokerage company “gave birth” to the very important sister company, Frontline Property Management, Inc. Together, these companies work in conjunction with one another to offer a unique “turn-key” service to any level of investor across many different product lines. Steve and his family love to travel. While on vacation, Steve fulfills his love for an adventure through scuba diving, skiing, and hiking. He also has a need for speed! He loves racing go-carts and is an avid runner. He completed his first marathon in Fort Worth in 2010; followed up by running 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 events as well.
