Tish Kanat has been in real estate most of her life. Born and raised in Oakland, she started her career right out of college while looking for a teaching job. Tish’s father, Dick Murphy, bought one of the first Century 21 franchises back in 1976 and opened it across from Mills College. It was called Century 21 Murphy & Associates and, in that office, Tish learned the ropes from a professional — it was a perfect match.
Five years later, after meeting and marrying Marc Kanat of Fox & Carskadon, Tish and Marc worked in Montclair and together sold real estate for Mason McDuffie.
Home prices and job opportunities encouraged a family move to Contra Costa County. Mom to four, Tish worked part-time for Century 21 Hosking & Associates in Walnut Creek. After raising the children and facing an empty nest. Tish decided it was time to pursue a job in the mortgage business as her husband, Marc, had done previously.
A background in wholesale and retail lending has proven invaluable to her real estate business. The lending rise and crash that took real estate values up and down in the early 2000’s is not news to Tish. After realizing the market had changed, it was time to decide if mortgage or real estate was the path to take. Tish joined Keller Williams Realty to hone her skills, and then moved to Dudum Real Estate Group, already a well-seasoned agent.
