We worked with Derek Pittmon and Lauren Dunaway when buying our home, and they were the best! We were re-locating from another state and they helped us navigate an abroad search seamlessly. The customer service from this winning duo was unparalleled, and they truly made us feel like we were their only clients. Very responsive and felt like they immediately stopped everything they were doing to get a video of a house we were interested in or any other request needed. We would highly recommend this team and this professional firm to seek, show and close your dream home. Not to mention, invest in some stretchy pants around these two, you’ll be laughing until your stomach hurts! Great experience!!
Derek is the lead buyer’s agent with Godwyn & Stone. Born and raised in Magnolia, Texas, Derek graduated from the University of Houston. A born conversationalist, history buff, and avid sports fan, Derek’s interests led him into the world of sports and talk radio. From producing some of the top-rated sports and political talk radio shows in Houston, to sideline reporting and covering the Olympics and other major sporting events, Derek has done a little bit of everything. He followed his heart to the hometown of his wife, Elizabeth, just outside New Orleans and has worked in real estate since 2016.
Derek brings comic relief to the team and the industry. He makes things happen, but he also keeps things lighthearted and fun. Derek appreciates the history and architecture of New Orleans, its food and its people, and enjoys connecting with others and helping them find their home sweet home.
Derek is also a star on the hit HGTV show “Selling the Big Easy” which premiered in 2020 on HGTV. The show follows Brittany Picolo-Ramos and her team as they help clients find the home of their dreams by showing them high-end properties with the right amount of history and charm.
