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.

“Michael was very rude and dishonest. He lied to my wife and I. When I called him out on catching him lying to us he then tried to back out of his statement by lying some more. Very unprofessional. The agent that worked for him and was supposed to help us find a home to purchase did next to nothing...“

“Diana Nastri is unprofessional and has no respect for anyone’s time. We were suppose to meet to look at a home. That was a hour and 20 minutes from me at 2 o’clock. She did not show up, turned off her phone when I was calling. Did not get back to me or give me the common courtesy telling me she would not be able t make it.“

"Having returned to my home town after a long absence, I didn't have any connections to recommend a good agent to help with the sale of my parent's home. HomeLight connected me with a great agent who had the home sold in less than 3 weeks."

Mary W.

HomeLight Client

"II was looking to sell my house in Connecticut and did a quick web search along with web searches for agents. I highly recommend HomeLight from a sellers perspective. From the initial contact to follow up it could not have been more professional."

Ann S.

HomeLight Client

"After contacting HomeLight, I promptly received phone calls from three highly qualified real estate professionals. I was very comfortable and impressed with all three of the agents... Without hesitation or reservation, I highly recommend HomeLight!"

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Branford?
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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Branford?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Branford, CT.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Branford?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
