Donna Beretta, a veteran agent in the Westport office of William Raveis Real Estate, has been named the company's 2013 top seller among more than 3,000 agents in seven states, the brokerage announced.

Beretta last year closed residential sales of nearly $40 million in Fairfield County, the highest total for any Raveis agent, the Northeast's largest residential real estate company said in a news release.

She has been among the company's top 10 in sales for 11 consecutive years, according to the release.

"Donna has consistently performed at the highest levels of our industry since joining our company in 2001," company Chairman William Raveis said in the release. "Her incredible devotion to client service, market knowledge, and client confidentiality has earned her the trust of her clients and colleagues."

Beretta worked for 16 years in financial markets before entering the real estate industry 13 years ago, the company said. She is a mother of two and has lived in Westport for 18 years.

Raveis has nearly 100 company-owned and affiliate offices in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. It says it is the eighth largest real estate company in the nation.

The Westport office is at 47 Riverside Ave.
