Black Excellence in Real Estate is a movement created by Mary Hester, Founder and Owner of LifeVenture Real Estate Solutions, and Tammy T. Thompson, Founding Executive Director of Catapult Greater Pittsburgh.


As Black women who have been working in the real estate and non-profit industries for decades, they always wanted to be intentional about creating intentional opportunities for Black families in Pittsburgh to obtain homeownership.


In 2021 they decided to join forces and establish an entity that promotes collaboration, partnership, and advocacy for the benefit of increasing Black homeownership in Pittsburgh.

Let’s Work Together

We look forward to working with you!
