Great Barrington, Mass. (October 6, 2016) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that Elle Villetto, a sales agent with a background in fashion and merchandising, has joined the company and will be based in the firm’s Great Barrington brokerage.
Prior to her real estate career, Villetto was involved in fashion and merchandising, with over 20 years of sales experience. She attended Santa Fe College of Art and Design in Santa Fe, N.M., where she studied art history and computer graphics. Villetto eventually opened several successful fashion boutiques throughout Austin, Tex. and its surrounding areas, using her prior knowledge of working with high-end luxury retailers to effectively bring buyers and sellers together. Carrying these valuable skills with her, Villetto returned to the Berkshires, Mass. in 2008, making an easy transition into real estate sales.
“I look at real estate not only as an investment but as a personal statement of an individual’s style and soul,” said Villetto. “Long after a closing, I make sure to help my clients find architects, designers, landscapers and even pet sitters, as they explore and discover all the offerings of the beautiful Berkshires, and make their new house truly feel like home.”
“Elle’s background in fashion and sales, as well as her inquisitive energy, make her the perfect agent to help narrow down the home search process,” said Kristine Newell, manager of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Great Barrington brokerage. “She tirelessly works to always put her clients’ needs first, and recognizes the importance of excellent service—a trademark the brand aims to constantly uphold.”
Villetto is a member of the REACT committee for the Berkshire Board of Realtors, a charitable group that organizes fundraising events for local community needs. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, running and hiking. Villetto currently resides with her family in Lenox, Mass.
