HOME IS WHERE OUR LIVES HAPPEN
I was raised in the Pittsburgh suburbs where my father owned a real estate business. Through that exposure I learned that the best way to build a business is with satisfied clients. Today most of my business is from client referrals as well as other business associates I have met over the years. After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. in Communications I worked as the Director of a large medical practice of 145 physicians for about 11 years. After a stint as a stay-at-home mom, I have been selling real estate for the past 12 years. From my first year in the real estate business I have been a multi-million dollar producer and perennially on a top producer list at another company. I recently make a move to Remax Select which I find to be a wonderful business model with so many tools for me to use for buyers and sellers. My husband and I have lived in Sq. Hill and Shadyside and more recently the Fox Chapel area which gives me a good perspective on city/suburb living and private/public schools. My two daughters have graduated from both. I love Pittsburgh and the way it has developed in the post-steel era. Our housing is affordable, traffic is tolerable and there is so much to do here; bicycle trails and boating, sports teams and restaurants. I never have trouble showing new employee recruits why Pittsburgh is the place for them and their families. I love working with buyers and I have earned a designation as an Accredited Buyers Representative. Likewise I find the strategies required to sell homes quickly and at the highest price a wonderful challenge. I am convinced of the value of home staging and quality, professional photography when listing a home for sale. Often I am asked to take on properties that have other agents have been unable to sell. I find my designation as a Certified Negotiation Expert helps me not only sell properties more quickly but also at the highest price. I sell in the East End, downtown, Mt. Washington, as far east as Murraysville and south to Upper St. Clair. I welcome the opportunity to talk with you either about selling your current home or helping you to find a new one. A home is an important investment - it is where our lives happen.
