Jules G. Etes
William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty
About Jules

Top Producer! Diamond Award Winner! Five Star Award Winner for 6 years in a row! Zillow Five Star Agent with over 67 reviews and 374 sales! In 2018, I successfully closed 67 transactions in real estate. In the town of Guilford, I closed 38 deals, representing both buyers and sellers! In 2018, I sold over $20 Million in real estate deals. I am the #1 agent in dollars and units for the Guilford brokerage. I am the #2 in unit sales company wide in 2018. I rank #12 company wide for dollar volume. For more information about my listings and my success, please visit my website: jules.williampitt.com I have earned awards for production in sales reaching the Diamond Level every year since 2009 until present. I have been the recipient of the 5 Star Service Award based on customer satisfaction for 7 consecutive years. I am certified to work with USAA Clients as well as Relocation Programs and Services. I have been ranked #1 for unit sales in the Guilford brokerage for William Pitt Sotheby’s Internatioanl Realty since 2009 until present. I have combined skills, unique strengths and proven results year after year. I sometimes work in conjunction with Schoolside Remodeling, Stephen Etes, when I have a client who needs remodeling work or 203K rehab loans. Our work can be viewed at Schoolsideremodeling.com. It is very rewarding to help a client find the right house, and remodel that space into their dream home! My goal in 2019 is to list, sell and work with buyers to help them find the right home for them, their budget and their family needs. I will bring you through the process step by step. My goal is to make the buying or selling process as smooth as possible. (Although real estate can sometimes be a bumpy ride!). The process should be enjoyable, and with my skills and good relationship with the buyer or seller, the goal is to make it a successful transaction for them. This year will be a difficult year for sellers. The newest reports state that Connecticut is #3 for people moving from the state. Fewer are coming into the state than leaving. It is extremely important that seller’s this year concentrate on a fully updated home or well maintained including mechanicals, basically a turnkey! The Seller’s will have to be as aggressive as they can in the market if the house is dated, or lacks updated big ticket items such as furnace, roof, windows, etc. Buyers today prefer turnkey, but if not, they will want the house as a price reflective of the work needed! I have lived in the shoreline of CT most of my life. I graduated from UCONN with BS in Marketing and Finance. Followed by an MBA from Quinnipiac in Finance and Management. Putting these skills together with the background of owning a remodeling company, provides wonderful skills to sell and buy real estate for any buyer or seller, and any price point! I work with first time homebuyers, move up clients, downsizing folks, as well as investors! Looking forward to working with you! Please check out my reviews on my website, or email /call me anytime with questions!

KD Kling
William Raveis
About KD

After living in New York City for 12 years, Connecticut native KD Kling felt she truly found her home when she moved to the southern Connecticut shoreline in 2002. In 2008, KD translated her deep appreciation of the area's unique characteristics into a stellar real estate career as a top-selling agent and consistent multi-million-dollar producer. With 10 years' experience as a shoreline, New Haven, and Middlesex county realtor, KD connects potential buyers with their ideal property by sharing her extensive knowledge of the newest housing inventory, best financing options and latest market trends. A skilled negotiator, KD prides herself in working tirelessly to find the added value in every sale and giving clients the best results in any financial climate. A luxury properties specialist, KD specializes in exceptional properties and water-area homes. She loves the challenge of taking buyers on the hunt to zero-in on shoreline properties ripe for renovation as a stunning next home or solid real estate investment. KD is also a go-to realtor for local builders seeking properties for new construction and renovation opportunities as either investments or their new home. It's important to KD to get the most she can for each of her clients. As past and repeat clients can attest, KD knows a happy client will refer her to others, or contact her with future real estate needs. They are the foundation of her success. In early 2018, KD took her desire to serve clients to the next level by teaming with experienced local realtor and friend, Stephanie Donegan, to form Kling-Donegan Realty Partners.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Branford Center?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
