History of the Ft. Pierce Office:
In 1949, Hoyt Campbell Murphy began Hoyt C. Murphy REALTORS that grew to include more than 50 Sales Associates and three offices with prime locations in Fort Pierce, South Hutchinson Island, Ocean Village and Port St. Lucie. Their son, Hoyt C. “Pat” Murphy, Jr., and their daughter, Margaret “Peggy” Murphy, joined the business and continued the family heritage. Since 1949, the firm has sold over $1.5 Billion of local real estate transactions including groves, hotels, residences, condominiums and commercial properties. In 2012 the Hoyt family joined their long standing family business with that of their neighbors up the road, the Schlitt’s.
Ed and Marguerite Schlitt opened Ed Schlitt Real Estate in 1953 serving Vero Beach, Florida. They were joined by their daughter, Linda Schlitt Gonzalez in 1972 and by their son, Steven Schlitt, in 1998. They were later joined by two of Linda’s children, agents Andrew and Melanie Gonzalez as well as their sister Barb Schlitt Ford who serves as Head of Operations. Human Resources, and Legal. Following the tradition of their parents, Linda and Steve have grown the company into nine offices covering over 100 miles along Florida’s east coast. Now known as Coldwell Banker Paradise, the company has a sales force of over 230 sales associates and 48 staff to meet real estate needs for Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce, South Hutchinson Island, North Hutchinson Island, Vero Beach, Sebastian, and Melbourne, Florida.
