I feel extremely fortunate to have been very successful. As a matter of fact, my team and I have been sales leaders in our office every year. I am in the top 1\/2 of the top 1% of sale agents nationwide in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. Hard work, organization, attention to detail, education and really wonderful clients have all contributed to the yearly sales production. I think, most of all, my success may be due to realizing that life isn\u2019t just real estate.\nLife, for me, has been a coming together of all kinds of opportunities and terrific people, starting with my wonderful husband, Tom, my three super children, John, Chris and Susan, my beautiful grandchildren, Iris, Phoebe, Teddy, Gus, Will, Beatrice and Olive and a coterie of warm and caring friends. Taking a break with family and friends is very important. It\u2019s what makes it possible for me to give the sustained professional attention to your real estate transactions when you need me. And it makes it possible to look outside myself, as we all must do, to give back to my community whenever I can.\nAnd I love Philadelphia! What a marvelous city offering so many opportunities! How lucky Tom and I have been to be able to raise our children here. Philadelphia is full of the gritty realities of a northeastern city. It has its share of urban blight, poverty, and crime. But it also offers neighborhoods with character and tradition, great museums, a world-class orchestra, innovative theatre, extraordinary educational institutions, the vitality of cultural diversity, a rich texture of history and architecture, and, amazingly, more sylvan parkland within its borders than any other city in the country. Not to mention some of the best restaurants in the country! This is a city of extraordinary accomplishment, and it is full of promise. It is a place where a person can make a mark. It is a place where the rewards of reaching out are without measure.\nSo, no, life isn\u2019t just real estate. For me, it is also family, friends, my wonderful team, the Germantown Friends School, Habitat for Humanity, Historic Germantown and Chestnut Hill Historical Societies, my block of Pulaski Avenue, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Lyric Fest, Preservation Alliance, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Germantown Relief Society and more.\n","area_of_expertise":"REALTOR\u00ae, Associate Broker, Team Leader","team":false,"office_cpt":false,"awards":false,"languages_spoken":"","facebook":"https:\/\/www.facebook.com\/lorettawitthomes\/","twitter":"","instagram":"https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/lorettawitthomes\/","pinterest":"","google_plus":"","linkedin":"https:\/\/www.linkedin.com\/in\/loretta-witt-0376576\/","youtube":"","region_heading":"My Regions Of Expertise","region_description":"","agent_regions":false,"neighborhoods_heading":"My Neighborhoods Of Expertise","neighborhoods_description":"","agent_neighborhoods":false,"hide_properties_section":false,"agent_properties_section_heading":"Featured Listings","agent_properties_section_description":"","use_default_settings_for_agent_listings":false,"disable_search_with_me":false,"testimonial_section_title":"What My Clients Say","testimonial_section_description":"","testimonials_data_source":"testimonials-cpt","testimonial_data":false,"enable_agent_press_section":false,"agent_primary_menu_id":"","agent_footer_menu_id":"","agent_custom_logo":false,"agent_featured_properties_settings":{"display_listings_in_tabs":false,"show_sales_tab":false,"show_sold_tab":false,"show_rentals_tab":false,"show_rented_tab":false,"show_commercial_sales_tab":false,"show_commercial_rental_tab":false,"listing_type":["residential_sales"],"listing_status":["active_all"],"limit":"10","must_have_photo":true,"min_bedrooms":"","min_bathrooms":"","min_price":"","show_only_my_properties":true,"office_ids":[{"office_id":"B61010"}],"ids":false,"sort_by":["listing_date_desc"],"backfill_properties_settings":{"agent_properties_count_less":"10","show_only_exclusive":false,"es_filter_properties_by_teams":false,"more_backfill_criteria":{"listing_type":["residential_sales"],"listing_status":["active_all"],"must_have_photo":true,"min_bedrooms":"","min_bathrooms":"","min_price":"","sort_by":["listing_date_desc"]}}},"title":""}
