Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or looking to find your dream property, Herb Butzke will successfully navigate you through the process. Having recently purchased their dream home, Herb and his wife Donna spent over a year searching the Berkshires and neighboring Hilltowns for the perfect home. Working with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty made the difference, locating our “one of a kind” dream property in beautiful Rowe, Massachusetts. Herb has purchased and sold many homes in the past and knows the importance of being a good listener, having excellent customer service skills, and being a superior negotiator.

Herb has spent the past several decades in the consumer products industry before becoming a full-time real-estate agent, working for several major corporations serving as a Vice President of sales. That corporate background, coupled with a tenacious work ethic and always going the extra mile for his clients, set the stage to transition into the real estate sector.

After working with many real estate companies as a customer, Herb found no other company offered the resources and services provided by William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty and the Sotheby’s Brand, making his career choice in Western Massachusetts an easy one.

Herb is an avid outdoorsman and loves the great mix of cultural, extreme sports and the unspoiled outdoors that western Massachusetts has to offer. His family farms most of their food and continues to expand their homesteading efforts with a boutique Maple Syrup operation. He is active in his community holding several positions in the local town government and a member of his local snowmobile club. Herb attended Syracuse University where he studied Sales Marketing and Personnel /Industrial Relations. Herb also competed at Syracuse playing division 1 football and was fortunate to play against many notable NFL hall of famers and attributes his competitive edge on the field to his success in sales today. The only thing that overshadows his collegiate football memories was meeting his wife Donna at Syracuse University and now having their two children, a daughter, and a son as well as a dog and cat, enriching their day to day lives formerly in New Jersey and now here in the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts.

Giving back to the less fortunate has been a large part of their lives over the years and now more than ever on their 100+ acre country...

Giving back to the less fortunate has been a large part of their lives over the years and now more than ever on their 100+ acre country farm. They host children through The Fresh Air Fund giving kids an opportunity to get out of the city and spend a week in the country to have new and exciting experiences. Herb and Donna have been hosting kids for the past 20 years and feel they get as much out of the program as the kids.

Testimonials

I enjoyed working with Herb Butzke he was very professional and pleasant to work with. My house sold fast Thank’s to Herb.

Deborah J. Travis

Herb was the best realtor I’ve ever had. He understood the positive aspects of my house and presented it well . Most importantly he worked hard to do what needed to be done. He went above and beyond . I highly recommend him.

Sarah Kaye

Herb was an excellent agent.

Waldemar Wronski Barbara Wronski

Working with Herb made the process of purchasing a land lot in the Berkshires a manageable process. Herb was patient, amazing at following up by phone, text, and email regardless of time of day. No doubt Herb is on the all-star team. Thanks again Herb for your concern that I was going to be comfortable with the purchase and the time and energy you spent.

Anthony Bascone

Herb was extremely helpful, always attentive to our questions, and ever prompt with a reply. An excellent communicator - I would absolutely work with Herb again.

Nicole Tebaldi Johnathan Griffin

Very professional. Excellent communication. Got the job done.

Shirley and Eugene Cordes

We have really enjoyed our professional interaction with Herb during our home buying process over the past few months. He was very knowledgeable about the real estate transaction details and responsive to all of our question that we had. We also appreciated his laid back style, which perfectly matched our personalities. For this reason, we were well-aligned in our purchasing philosophy which made the transaction an enjoyable overall experience. Happy holidays!

Claudine Ellyin Mirko Palla

We met our realtor, Herb Butzke, at a listing of his we were interested in. Not only was he extremely professional, he was professional, friendly and not aggressive or hard selling as many agents can be. We found another listing and contacted Herb to be our buyer's agent. Due to the pandemic, we could not fly to the open house but Herb figured out a way to share live video to show my wife the home, barn and related out buildings. After our offer was accepted, due in major part to Herb's shrewd negotiations and persuasive discussions with the listing agent, Herb continued to be a trusted and valued resource all the way thru inspection, closing and post-ownership. On a scale of 1-10 we would rate Herb an 11. We not only would not hesitate to engage Herb again we will be referring anyone else in housing needs in Western Mass to him. Best realtor I have worked with, met or heard of bar none.
