Marti Tyler can claim a real estate gene dominates her DNA, thanks to a grandmother who sold homes in the 1940’s, and a mother who opened her own realty firm in 1960, where, as the first woman accepted into the Durham Board of Realtors, she worked until her death. Marti’s sister is still running the shop. For 17 years Marti worked with a local firm and in 2011 founded Tyler, Redhead & McAlister with two partners. Marti can’t help it: with three grown children living elsewhere, she tends to “adopt” her Greensboro clients as family, and buyers and sellers become close friends. Marti’s guilty pleasure? Pretty Woman. She’s seen the movie 13 times. And counting.
