About Me About Me

Jeff Loholdt is a highly regarded Realtor covering Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, and Hamden Counties in Western Massachusetts. With deep ties to the area, strong negotiation skills, and a just-plain-friendly persona, he always aspires to exceed client expectations and make buying or selling real estate as straightforward, easy, and ultimately successful.

Jeff’s a seasoned professional when it comes to both real estate and the Western Mass area. He’s spent decades in the sales, marketing, and real estate fields, with experience representing properties in over 15 states as well as in new home construction and land development. 

But he’s spent even longer in his “office,” Western Massachusetts itself. Born in the Berkshires and raised in Williamstown, he’s thrilled to be back near his roots living the country life on his family’s working solar and hobby farm in Adams, MA. In his expert opinion as a true local, Western Mass is a great place to live, vacation, retire, or raise a family. (And even if you’re selling instead of buying… that’s still great news knowing how popular Western Mass has become to so many seeking our country and cultural lifestyle).

Jeff believes any good client relationship begins with being a good listener. He seeks to understand a buyer or seller’s wants, needs, and desires first before jumping in and executing a strategic plan. Because when you’re making a major move or investment, you need a seasoned, business-minded professional in your corner that clearly understands what you’re looking for and is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. 

To further step outside the box for his clients, Jeff also offers a direct connection to a premier building solution for those seeking to acquire land and build their dream home rather than settle when inventory is challenging.  Introductions to the area’s premier general contractors and master carpenters is part of the service to ensure they have the ability to assess and choose the best solution for their situation.  

As a consistent top-producing agent, Jeff is diligent, competitive, and creative – as a human being, he is laid-back, supportive, and willing to take on all the difficult stuff so you can focus entirely on making the best decision for you and your family. Though all client relationships start as a business partnership, most turn into friendships that endure long beyond closing. 

Jeff prides himself on having a tenacious and competitive mindset while staying true to his core beliefs: putting the needs of others before his own, working both smarter AND harder, and maintaining integrity in all his interactions. Beyond that, he gives back and pays it forward through a charitable initiative that donates a portion of all sales to causes close to him and his clients.  After losing his father in 2019 to Dementia, he wanted to find a way to make a difference and through much thought and reflection, Jeff plans to launch “The Dragonfly Affect” in the summer of 2022.  A very special and beautiful creature, which remains symbolic to his father and now this effort.  Jeff will be sharing a portion of his success in concert with his client’s donations for the charitable cause of their choice.  In Jeff’s own words, “I want to make a difference in the world and create a pretty special ending to my story...  I hope my legacy will be one my children will be proud to share.  Similar to the feelings I hold for my dad”.

When he’s not working, Jeff loves spending time with his family, working on his farm, running their 501(c)(3)-recognized Great Dane Rescue, fishing, and riding through the Berkshire hills with his wife on their motorcycles.

Between Jeff’s local expertise, his corporate-style business approach, and Sotheby’s International Realty’s world-class marketing and global reach, you won’t be disappointed.

Testimonials (33)

We were well represented by one of Sotherby International's best realtors in the Berkshires. Jeff Loholdt was professional, responsive and in every regard was our "trusted advisor". We would gladly endorse and recommend Jeff and plan on working with him again when we buy or sell real estate in the region. Hoosac Range LLC
Jeff was exceptionally persistent in securing a buyer for our property. He was, at all times, professional, knowledgeable, and responsive to any questions or concerns we had through the process. Trust was essential to us and without reservation Jeff became a trusted agent and friend. We thank him for never giving up, for his patience, and for his help in bringing this listing to a smooth, successful conclusion. Well done! Nancy Garton Barry Garton
Jeff did a great job, perfect result, couldn’t ask for more. Thanks! Steven C. Lunau, Jr
We were referred to Jeff Loholdt from our friend Jared Parker. From day one to our day of closing Jeff was our trusted advisor. Jeff can look at a property and see what the owner sees. He then works selflessly to make sure you find the right buyer and helped us get what our property was worth. The other thing that Jeff has is the respect and reputation of those he recommended to us to help us with this sale. We are so thankful to Jeff and William Pitt/Sotheby's  Francis Sullivan-Willett
Excellent work -- George devoted concerted attention to taking care of myriad details that we were not able to take care of from a distance. Thanks for solid, efficient work and strong communication throughout. Harwood Fisher Helene Fisher
Jeff was terrific to work with! We certainly weren't his most lucrative listing but he always made us feel like we were his top priority. Without his attention to detail, wise counsel around negotiations and extensive knowledge of comps the sale would not have happened. Thank you Jeff! Gerard Smith
Jeff immediately understood our complex buying criteria and found intriguing properties. He admirably helped negotiate a deal. Micheal Barbehenn Jacinda Barbehenn
I can't speak generally about William Pitt/Julia B Fee because I only worked with Jeff Loholdt , a broker with William Pitt/Sotheby's and did not have personal interaction with anyone else. I can say that the marketing done by the firm was very good, reaching potential buyers from other states, and undoubtedly responsible for the sale. I would like to comment about Jeff Loholdt . He was extremely helpful and always available. He suggested a solution that enabled me to sell the property and remain in it for the 9 1/2 months I need to be here before moving out. I was able to sell the property for cash at the price Jeff had proposed, despite the fact that it is in a very remote location and housing prices have been falling. Jeff is incredibly hard-working, very obliging and personable, and very familiar with the hilltown area where my house is located. Plehn RE Trust & Residury Trust
Hi, Jeff was a great agent. He followed through on everything we needed. He never complained about extra work or the ordeal of our house not being correctly documented as a three-family. He did a huge amount of work for us and was professional throughout the experience. He was a very good communicator and kept me up to date with information. I would highly recommend him to a friend. My husband and I decided to divorce mid-way through the sale. Jeff was very professional through what became a tense situation. He acted in both our best interests, staying above the fray. I appreciated his seeing this sale through to the end. Julia Suor
Not only will I recommend Jeff Loholdt in the future… but already have!! Jeff is absolutely fantastic! Cheryl A. Beattie
Jeff was superb: clear-thinking and adroit, he managed so to transform the property that he realized a sale price fifty percent above that anticipated by other real-estate agents -- and on just the second day that the property was shown! On top of that, he's a genuinely nice (and interesting) person. You couldn't do better than to retain him as your own agent. R. W. Storm
Working with Jeff Loholdt on our recent purchase of a home in North Adams was an excellent experience. We were recommended to him by a Sotheby's agent we have worked with in Boston. Jeff made the daunting process of searching for homes from three hours away a painless process. He got us into a competitive listing which we were most excited about an hour before the first open house and provided us with helpful guidance as we crafted a winning offer for the property. Jeff recommended top notch local inspectors and other professionals which made the due diligence and closing process a breeze. We cannot recommend Jeff highly enough! Aubrey Tyner Lawrence Laura Aberle
We recommend-without reservation-Jeff Loholdt from Sotheby’s to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in western Massachusetts. Jeff is an outstanding real estate agent. We worked closely with him for six months, during the challenges of the pandemic, and saw firsthand his remarkable skill set. Jeff is essentially a talented ambassador for western MA and the Berkshires in particular. He has a deep knowledge and affinity for Pioneer Valley, the Berkshires and the areas in-between. He is a quick study, analytical, organized and an excellent communicator. Additionally, he is calm under pressure, resourceful (he has so many contacts and shares those resources), and a creative problem-solver. Jeff is a rare professional - ethical, hardworking and driven by the needs of his clients. We will be raising a glass to his guiding hand from the comfort of our new, beautiful home! Liz & Lindsay Beaman
Jeff worked diligently to point out the extraordinary features of our home to prospective buyers. He was on time for appointments and relayed feedback after each showing. His experience was important to us especially in negotiating an offer and purchase and sale agreement for our home. We highly recommend Jeff! Kristin Harvey
Jeff did a great job! High level of personalize communication, found a buyer quickly, helped facilitate this long distance sale and got us a better price than we thought was possible! Thank you Jeff! Charles Lyman Anne Mezzo
Jeff was fantastic through every aspect of both my purchase and sale of my properties. His knowledge and expertise were invaluable. I really can't express in a note how happy I am with the service and personal attention that I received from my realtor. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property. Pitt/Sotheby's International had all the tools available to my realtor to make a smooth and seamless transaction. I really couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Ken Hodgdon Kenneth Hodgdon
Jeff Loholdt's representation of Sotheby's was terrific. Great demeanor and guidance through out the sales process. Marie Stella 2012 Revocable Trust
Jeff Loholdt is a gentleman, knowledgeable, respectful, thoroughly informed on the house and property, gets answers to questions immediately and always works for the purchaser to have comfort and happiness with their choice. Eric Shapiro
I was in an unusual situation with an unusual house to sell. My husband had died one year prior, I had sold our primary residence of 35 years in upstate NY just months before. This house, in western MA, was unusual and truly magnificent, but not completed, still requiring work, lacking a Certificate of Occupancy. I contacted Sotheby's/William Pitt and briefly described my situation. I was soon contacted by Jeff Loholdt. Jeff, Herb Butzke and I met within days. THEY GOT IT. THEY GOT "ME"... They understood. This was going to be more than a sale of property. There were feelings involved, my feelings... grief, fear, indecision, confusion, second-guessing... Jeff and Herb dealt skillfully and warmly with my every question, every concern, every worry. I knew- from the moment we met- that i was in skilled, experienced and caring hands. Despite my emotional distress, once the decision was made, all of my ambivalence was gone. I had the guidance, support and kindness of experts in the realty arena. We had a short and effective timeline. After several months of discussion, it took less than two months from listing to closing, which was particularly impressive considering the impact of Covid. I don't have words to express my profound gratitude for Jeff and Herb's endless investment of themselves in assuring the most ideal match in a buyer (which soothed my broken heart) and the most seamless process through closing, literally until the moment i walked out the front door. They are wizards, comedians, strategists, therapists. They are new friends who became old friends. They are my heroes. Helene Steiner Copp
From start to finish, our broker Jeff Loholdt was fantastic. I first met Jeff while touring forested properties in the middle of winter. He was friendly and helpful and knew exactly what we were looking for. When we finally found the property that was the best fit for our company, Jeff did an amazing job of keeping a good line of communication open for all parties involved. Due to the nature of our company, we had a long contingency period in which we were pursuing permits through the local jurisdiction. Even through countless unexpected delays, Jeff was incredibly patient through the long and complicated process and was also instrumental in much of our local outreach. We highly recommend Jeff for his friendly and professional service. Better Forest Places
Overall very pleased. For the record, we primarily dealt with Herb Butzke as our agent with Jeff running back-up. They were both great!!! David and Nancy Patteson
I found Jeff easy to work with and understanding our needs as we worked together. He was able to foresee the needs of selling our rural “unique property”. He marketed out property beautifully and I would recommend Jeff. William Meyers
Every aspect of our work with Jeff Loholdt, our agent, was professional, friendly and supportive, and backed up with excellent communication at all hours, 7 days a week. Stephen and Odett Klass
Jeff was very easy to work with a very knowledgeable. Douglas Williams
Jeff Loholdt is an outstanding broker. I was a very picky client, with definite requirements of what I wanted in my home purchase. Jeff was very patient, only selecting properties that fit my criteria. While it took two years for me to find a home that met what I was looking for, I am very happy with my purchase, and the information and assistance Jeff provided me in the purchase process (as this is my first home). Jeff also offered connections to inspection and other necessary services, both through the purchase process and afterwards. I can 't say enough about the level of service provided by Jeff. I heartily recommenced him to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. Based on my experience, I am sure that the same level of service would be provided by Jeff to anyone looking to sell their property. You cannot, in my opinion, go wrong having Jeff as your broker. Mark Silverman
Jeff was a huge help in selling my house. I don't live in the state the home was located in and Jeff helped bridge that gap. He was always available to facilitate repairs/inspections, etc. In the end I think Jeff's hard work got the deal done. Much appreciated and highly recommended. Britton Shinn, Princeton, NJ
This guy deserves 10 stars or more!!! He single-handidly saved our house purchase when things got tough. Incredible mix of professional know-how in the real estate process, plus Jeff is tenacious for his client's best-interest. Top down, this guy wears his clients' interests on his sleeve and  uses all the tools at his disposal (professional and personal) to get things done successfully. Take it from me, get Jeff as your agent and you will love the results! Paul and Karen Dufraine, Riverview, Florida

Jeff is the consummate professional. Attentive and extremely knowledgeable. In my opinion, there are not any realtors better than Jeff. We highly recommend you consider the fine services he and Sotheby's has to offer. Jim Mendelsohn, Scarborough, NY
Great person and Realtor. Jay Virgilio and Nancy Twohig, A.J. Virgilio Construction, Inc.
2017 - Thimble Cottage There are many capable realtors in our region, making it somewhat difficult to know where to go and who to select as a seller’s agent. For our most recent house sale, we asked around for someone who could position our home as a unique property with characteristics that would attract a certain buyer who appreciated its value. We received a stellar recommendation from a business colleague to work with Jeff Loholdt from Sotheby’s International Realty and could not have been more satisfied with the results. There are many real estate agents who will happily list your house without much thought or effort behind the process. Then there are team players, advocates who are looking out for your best interests, who bring with them a perspective that is different from the rest. We found Jeff truly cares about his clients and works hard to ensure an excellent outcome. What was clearly evident in our experience working with Jeff was that, even when acting as a dual agent – representing us as sellers and the buyer as well – he ensured both parties were completely satisfied with the final deal. Jeff was able to list and sell our home in 60 days during a time when the inventory of real estate in our community was fairly high. He made smart recommendations and home improvement suggestions to best position our home. He galvanized the creative marketing force of Sotheby’s International to capture the beauty and noteworthy assets of our property and find an enthusiastic buyer who was looking for exactly those things. Jeff was creative in his selling strategy, deliberate in his intention, and determined to make things succeed for all parties involved. It was a pleasure to work in partnership with him during the entire process. I am hopeful Jeff will still be practicing as a realtor when we decide to sell our current home. I would not want to work with anyone else! -- Angela C., New Marlborough, MA Angela Cardinali and John Kemp, New Marlborough, MA
2017 - Thimble Cottage Jeff was an amazing resource during the entire process, and I couldn’t have been happier. He brought a deep knowledge of not only the house and the property, but also the surrounding community, which was extremely helpful. During the process, he was on top of every detail and always quick to respond. Lastly, he continued to follow up after the purchase to make sure everything went well. I couldn’t have asked for better help and a better outcome. I would strongly recommend using Jeff on any property in the area. Steve Lunau, Williams College 07'
Jeff’s natural strength lies in the area of marketing, sales and customer service. This is a result of his tenacious work ethic, integrity and his contagious positive attitude. Daniel K - Lighthouse Point FL
