Prudential Fox & Roach Loretta Witt Philadelphia Realtor
Loretta Witt

For 34 years, I have been selling real estate in northwest Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. I feel extremely fortunate to have been very successful. As a matter of fact, I have led my office in sales almost every year. Hard work, organization, attention to detail, and education have all contributed to the yearly sales production. I think, most of all, my success may be due to realizing that life isn’t just real estate.

Life, 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. Maybe that’s why I chose the picture you see on this web page. That’s me in front of a stone ruin in Ireland. My dear friend, artist Alice McEnerney Cook, snapped me in Donegal holding my business card for fun. Taking a break with family and friends is very important. It’s 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.

And 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.

So, no, life isn’t just real estate. For me it is also family, friends, 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.


When it comes to real estate, here’s what you need to know about me. I am a full-time REALTOR© licensed in Pennsylvania as an associate broker and a broker appraiser. I work with the Delaware Valley’s top real estate company, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach Realtors in the best little office in Chestnut Hill. I am a graduate of the national Realtors Institute. I am among a select 5% of the country’s realtors who have the coveted Certified Residential Specialist designation, and I am an accredited Buyer Broker. In 2003, with Janet Lippincott, I established the Witt-Lippincott Team to give service to the many buyers who sought our help. All this has led to my selling more real estate every year than anyone else in my office, to my award by the Greater Philadelphia Association of Realtors as the realtor in northwest Philadelphia who sold the most real estate in 2003 and 2005 and the team in northwest Philadelphia who sold the most real estate in 2006, and to the national Prudential organization's giving me their highest award: "Top of the Rock". Our team also won that award in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. And in 2013 we received the Berkshire Hathaway HomeService's Chairman's Circle Diamond award. And I've been awarded the 5 Star Professional Real Estate Agent award since 2012. Most importantly for you, I list and sell properties successfully in good times and bad, and I pride myself in giving extraordinary service to all of my clients.

Here’s what a few of those clients have had to say:

“Mrs. Witt did an exceptional job in working through the sale of our home. She is thorough, clear and pleasant."

“I cannot recommend Loretta more highly. She always goes above and beyond.”

“As a real estate lawyer, I know a good and knowledgeable and ethical agent when I see one. They’re rare, and Loretta Witt is in a class by herself."

“She is wonderful. Honest, frank, good salesperson, good strategy, I can’t say all the good things about her."

“Most pleasant, well informed about the market, handles herself professionally. If I were still in business today, I would steal her away from you.”

“Loretta Witt was outstanding in every way possible. She helped us sort through a raft of information–about neighborhoods, housing values, negotiations, financing–and we reached a decision we were happy with.”

“I wish I had used Loretta from the beginning. My house had been on the market before, rented, and then sold by Loretta.”

“Absolutely fair, honest, and level-headed.”

“Loretta was knowledgeable, patient and had my best interest at heart. She understood what I was looking for and found the perfect house for me.”

“The market analysis by Loretta Witt was outstanding and helped us get the best possible price.”

“Loretta Witt turned a very difficult situation into an agreeable one! Nothing was too much trouble. You should think about duplicating Loretta.”

“Without a doubt, the most helpful realtor I've worked with in buying a house.”

“Loretta Witt is one of the most professional people I have ever dealt with in any profession. She was very smart in all aspects of our sale–screening for financially qualified buyers, negotiation advice, and market analysis/pricing. Offer her a partnership! She is too good to lose.”

“Our sale had some difficult problems which I thought, at times, were going to be insurmountable. Loretta brought it all to the table on schedule and to everyone’s satisfaction.”

“We just thoroughly enjoyed and were impressed by Loretta Witt’s professionalism–understanding, without ever pushing, of our goals, needs, etc.”

AND SO. . . .

Life and real estate have something in common: there are always new challenges, new things to learn, new ways to live and work, new people to meet. As long as that's the case, I’m very excited about being your realtor.
