Only one real estate brand has it all: a centuries-old heritage of expertise in treasured possessions, a proven referral network connecting qualified buyers and sellers locally and globally, a reputation for consistently delivering the highest level of service, a marketing strategy that achieves exposure through exclusive media partnerships and unique proprietary publications, and a team of agents with a consistent track record in handling the sale of distinctive property at all price points. At William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, we bring a number of advantages that are ours alone.
The William Pitt Company was founded in 1949 and built on a commitment to extraordinary customer service, community expertise and maintaining an entrepreneurial spirit, the same principles that Julia B. Fee was founded upon in 1953. In the following decades William Pitt and Julia B. Fee, each named after their founders, grew into household names and established themselves as the premier brands in their respective marketplaces of Connecticut and Westchester County, New York. The two firms expanded their reach by becoming Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates in 2005, and finally joined forces under the same leadership in 2009.

Our brand’s white glove referral program is a key differentiator, allowing network members to connect qualified buyers and sellers globally. Orchestrated by a dedicated team of professionals, thousands of these connections are made every month — from broker-to-broker to auction house-to-broker.
