Holly Pita

Realtor®

Real Estate has always been a passion of mine. So after being a stay at home mom for many years, the time came when all my kids were in school and I could pursue my love for real estate.

I moved to Avilla in 1999 and graduated East Noble High School in 2003. I now live in Kendallville with my amazing husband and 6 kids. Singing, gardening, interior design, watching my kids play soccer, and spending time with my family are just a few of my favorite things to do.

I’m truly thankful and excited to be to be part of a great team here at Hosler Realty and serving our great community.
