Kristine Newell

LITCHFIELD — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced that Kristine Newell, manager of the firm’s four Litchfield County brokerages and regional manager for the Hartford County regional brokerage, has been named the company’s 2019 Manager of the Year. Ms. Newell was chosen from among 16 brokerage managers for the honor, winning the award for the second consecutive year. With 19 years of expertise in real estate, Ms. Newell has served as a brokerage manager with the firm since 2015.

Under her leadership, the company has been a consistently dominating force in Litchfield County, holding number one market share in sold dollar volume for each of the past five years.

Ms. Newell led the charge to relocate the Washington and Kent offices in the past few years into more visible high-trafficked locations, and she doubled the size of the Litchfield office.


“I am grateful for this award but also extremely humbled,” said Ms. Newell. 

“My colleagues on our leadership team are the most talented and passionate leaders I have ever met. They continue to inspire me to be my best for the agents of Litchfield County. I am thankful to be able to live and work in this special corner of the world. 

“My agents are simply amazing and work tirelessly for our clients.”

Ms. Newell served as president of the Litchfield County Board of Realtors in 2019.

She additionally focuses on strengthening the company’s ties to the local community and organized several initiatives with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty in 2019 that benefited the Litchfield Historical Society, local food banks, women’s support services and the Litchfield Community Center.

She is also on the board of directors for Prime Time House, a non-profit that supports adults with mental illness.
