GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty has announced that Tim Donnelly will assume the role of brokerage manager for the firm's two Berkshire County brokerages in Great Barrington and Lenox, Mass.

Donnelly previously served for nearly three years in the position of assistant brokerage manager for the Berkshires as well as Litchfield County in Connecticut.

During those three years, Donnelly helped to facilitate William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty's significant growth in the region, including nearly tripling its sales force. The firm became the Berkshires' No. 1 residential real estate company in dollar volume for 2017, according to the FlexMLS, and also led the market in sales over $1 million. The company was involved in the highest residential sales of 2017 in five towns county-wide, including Chesterfield, Lenox, Richmond, Tyringham and Washington.

This year William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty continues to rank No. 1 in dollar volume year to date according to the FlexMLS. The company's successes in 2018 also include overseeing the sale of several new condominium offerings at the luxury spa and wellness resort Canyon Ranch in Lenox.

In addition to his involvement in the firm's sales growth, Donnelly has also played a key role in strategic expansion efforts, including the opening of a second Berkshires brokerage in Lenox and relocating to a larger office in Great Barrington in 2017. In Litchfield County, Donnelly helped with the recent move of the firm's Lakeville office to a more prominent location in Salisbury. He will remain involved in this region as co-manager in Salisbury alongside Litchfield County brokerage manager Kristine Newell, who manages four offices county-wide.

Before stepping into management, Tim consistently ranked a top producing agent in the Berkshires.

"Tim has proven instrumental to our success in the Berkshires," said Paul Breunich, president and CEO of William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty. "He has always brought the same passion, hard work ethic and commitment to service that helped him achieve top producer status to his role on our leadership team. I am thrilled to welcome him now as brokerage manager."

In his work Donnelly places an important emphasis on giving back to the Berkshires community. He recently entered the Berkshires offices into a "Battle of the Bartenders" charity competition, which the company won. All proceeds raised during the benefit were given to Construct, Inc., an organization dedicated to developing housing solutions for people in need in the Southern Berkshires.

Berkshires Beat: CATA to Break Ground on Future Home

CATA groundbreaking

Community Access to the Arts will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at the organization's future home at 420 Stockbridge Road on Monday, June 10, at 11 a.m. The new arts center will establish a permanent home for CATA and allow the organization to expand its innovative arts programs for people with disabilities.

"After 26 years of renting space, CATA will now have a true home--one that will double our existing space for artists with disabilities," said Margaret Keller, CATA's executive director. "With the growth we've achieved in recent years, we have been bursting at the seams. Now, after intensive planning, we are ready to take this pivotal step forward to give our CATA artists the space they deserve. We can't wait to share our plans with the wider community at the groundbreaking and in the months ahead."

The two-story, 6,400-square-foot facility will double the organization's existing studio space, with two new art studios— one for visual arts and writing, the other for dance and performing arts. CATA's new arts center will also embody the principles of Universal Design, making the facility accessible to every person. For the first time, the building will bring the organization’s studios and offices under the same roof.

Formerly the Renaissance Arts Center, the building will undergo an extensive renovation to prepare for its new life as the CATA Arts Center. Architects Clark & Green are leading the design of the renovation and Allegrone is managing construction. Construction is slated to begin in July, with the building opening in early 2020.
