My Conversation With Saho Witton: Leading Immigrant Who Made Nashville

Saho Hirose Witton was born in Shimane, Japan. She grew up in the countryside of Japan with her younger brother, parents and grandparents. Her mother and father owned a construction and rock quarry company. She was raised in Japan so her first language is Japanese, but she also speaks English meaning she is bilingual.

She attended Kobe Women’s University for college where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Literature and education. Then she went into teaching and even taught at the school that she attended when she was younger. She met her future husband, who was an American teacher, in Japan.

After she and her husband married, they moved to California in the United States. She then taught in Los Angeles as a teacher to Japanese students. It was in California where she had her first two children. Soon after, her family moved to Tennessee for the safer environment and more affordable living.

At first, she was a substitute teacher, but her children’s godparents recruited her to be a real estate agent. Saho and the kids’ godmother then went to real estate school. Shortly after, she became a real estate agent in 2007 before she gave birth to her third and last daughter. Being a real estate agent proved to work well with her schedule. She could spend time with her family and at the same time have a career for herself. Ever since then she has been working hard as a real estate. Everyday, she works diligently to be fair and give a win/win situation to all of her clients and everyone she works with.

Her hard work and dedication have paid off in the long run and she has received many honors such as being featured in “Nashville Real Producers magazine” in 2017 and in addition to her real estate awards. She also received some recognition from her local chamber of commerce.

She loves her job because it gives her great opportunities to be flexible in order to raise her kids, work with the chamber of commerce and also work to pursue goals and ambitions in her career.
