Company History

Memphis real estate pioneers Majorie Coleman and Fran Etter formed Coleman-Etter Realtors, one of the first women-owned real estate agencies in the nation, in 1951. Fontaine Taylor became a full partner in 1985 and owner in 1987, and has been maintaining those standards ever since. Fontaine ensured high expectations in both ethics and practices for the company, and brought cutting-edge technology applications to maintain the company’s standards. Her day-to-day involvement in the company’s management and her philosophy of customized service form the cornerstone of Coleman-Etter, Fontaine’s operation.

In Taylor’s words, "Whether you are buying or selling a home, you are represented by our entire company, not just one agent. We are a strong team." Approximately thirty professional realtors make up this team, and most of these associates are multi-million dollar producers who have been with the company for over fifteen years. We are powerhouse agents who consistently surpass our clients’ expectations. In addition, our team is supported by the finest marketing, web management, and bookkeeping staff in the region. This strong base helps Coleman-Etter, Fontaine Realtors consistently rank among the top real estate companies in Memphis, while maintaining a smaller, family-like atmosphere.
