Testimonials

My rating and likelihood of recommending William Pitt Sotheby’s are specific to Don and Kathy Shannehan. They were exceptional at preparing my property for listing. Consequently, we had a very strong offer within the first week of listing! They were thoughtful and realistic with their approach yet vigorously represented me to make the deal happen. I intend to make referrals to them in the future!
