Little more than a week after he was hired by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, ties between luxury Realtor William P.D. Pierce and the brokerage were severed, The Real Deal has learned.

As of Friday afternoon, Pierce was out at ONE Sotheby’s. Daniel de la Vega, ONE Sotheby’s president, could not be reached for comment, but the company issued the following statement through its spokesperson: “William Pierce is no longer working for ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. That is all we are authorized to say on the matter.”

According to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the super broker was licensed with ONE Sotheby’s from Jan. 26 until Friday afternoon. Previously, he was with Coldwell Banker for about eight years until his departure for undisclosed reasons on Jan. 20, records show.

At noon on Friday, TRD broke the story of ONE Sotheby’s waffling over Pierce’s hire, saying at one point he was hired, then that he wasn’t, and then eventually confirming that he was on board with the brokerage. The article included mention of Pierce’s imminent criminal trial as well as separate pending criminal charges. After the story was published, ONE Sotheby’s contacted TRD with the news that he was no longer with the firm. Pierce’s exuberant announcements of his hire on social media were subsequently deleted.

This was not Pierce’s only short-lived term of employment this year. From Jan. 20 to Jan. 22, Pierce was licensed with Piquet Realty, according to state records. 

Pierce declined to comment to The Real Deal about his departure from ONE Sotheby’s, referring TRD to his attorney, who could not be reached via phone or email.
