About Barbara

Oh yes, I love real estate! Meeting new people and helping them get what they want in their new home or advising sellers as to how to get the absolute most money... I love it all! You may be looking to "right size" from your current home, build a home, fill an existing home with wonderful new memories or change your Pittsburgh view to a water view in the mountains or beach. Whichever situation you're in right now, I'd love to be your real estate agent--allowing my expertise to guide you to a great experience! With me, you have my commitment to listen, keep things positive, professional, calm, enjoyable & fun. Wanna Buy a New Home? Yes, there is something about meeting with a client, listening to you share how you want your house to live and helping you through the new construction process. I've been fortunate to work with a myriad of builders over the past 20+ years and have a knack of being a great advocate for my clients in negotiating with builders. My expertise with blueprints allows you to benefit from my suggestions about light coming in your home with extra windows or a different type of window suggestion to make sure your furniture placement works, finding ways to get the space or rooms you want, talk through the things that easily could be changed later to keep you in budget, etc. Education is super important to me, so although it wasn't necessary, I hold my Broker's license, stay up-to-the-minute with the most effective marketing for my sellers and am also proud to be a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, which is earned for superior performance in selling luxury homes with excellence. What does this mean to you? I'm committed to represent you exceptionally every time you entrust me to help you when you want to buy, sell or invest. I love helping empty nesters; their parents and their children (& yes, grandchildren) find a home to love & create new memories in. Text or call me and let's get started!

Georgie Smigel
Coldwell Banker
About Georgie

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. That said, in my experience as a Cranberry Twp real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Cranberry Twp areas, please contact me.

Amy Harbeck
Kinlin Grover Real Estate
About Amy

How lucky I am to live and work as a Realtor on Cape Cod! After falling in love with Cape Cod in the 70's, it was inevitable that my family and I would and make it our home. For me, the combination of the pristine coastal setting with the rich history and charming architecture make the Cape a unique and magical place to call home. To hear the creaking of wide pine floors in an 18th century house, watch the crimson spectacle of a cranberry harvest, the sunsets, the cool wet sand at low tide, the smell of salty air as storm clouds move in, the splash of a whale fluke…these are just some of the joys I savor every day on Cape Cod! I moved to the Cape after working in Africa for many years, first with Peace Corps in Cameroon then after graduate school with refugees in the Ivory Coast and Sudan. I have always been drawn to opportunities to listen to people and connect them to the information and resources they need. Being a Realtor allows me to combine the people and analytical skills of my first career with my personal passion for real estate and all things Cape Cod. Serving buyers and sellers since 2004, my professional training is in both residential and commercial real estate. Whether the goal is to buy or sell, I protect the best interests of my clients and work hard to make the process a smooth and pleasant experience for everyone involved. As found in independent surveys of clients, my customer satisfaction rating is consistently 100%. Thanks in part to referrals of past clients, more and more buyers and sellers are entrusting me with their real estate transactions every year. Now ranking in the top 2% of Realtors on Cape Cod, I have been honored to receive Kinlin Grover Awards for production every year since 2012, the highest and most recent being the Crown Club Award! Ready to make a move? I enjoy being a friendly real estate resource for Cape Codders and those “washing ashore!” I look forward to helping you explore your options and take the next step in the process. Sincerely, Amy

Christine Yarosz
RE/MAX Select
About Christine

I understand that buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions in a client's life. Many times it coincides with a major life change - such as marriage, divorce, new job, new baby or retirement. I enjoy working with each client to create a plan that works for their real estate needs. You will receive personal attention through every step of the process including home staging, mortgage questions, contract execution, negotiations and so much more. My customers are much more than a closing to me and I work hard to meet and exceed your expectations! As a commitment to helping our community, I will also donate $100 from each closing to a local charity that I support or a charity of your choice. (The charities I prefer to support are: Pennies From Heaven (www.penniesfromheavenpittsburgh.org) Hope Haven Farm(www.hopehavenfarm.org) and Ingomar Church (www.ingomarchurch.org)

Kelly Fraasch
EXP Realty
About Kelly

Hi, my name is Kelly! I was born and raised in the Chicago area, lived in Utah, Washington DC, and California after college and settled in Pittsburgh in 2005 to raise my children. My family and I have benefitted from all the Pittsburgh-area have to offer over the years and it's a wonderful place to live, work, and play. My work experience prior to real estate was in the non-profit field supporting victims of domestic violence, sexual assault. After moving to Pittsburgh and having a child born very prematurely, I served by helping families in maternal-child health. My past work experience instilled in me the work ethic, quick thinking, problem-solving, empathy, calmness even in the most challenging situations, and on-call mentality to serve my clients in real estate. While living in Pittsburgh, I also served as a Commissioner in Mt Lebanon for 8 years and this gives me a unique perspective of each community in the area in which my clients often pick my brain to figure out a neighborhood or community that's best for them. I enjoy staging and interior design. Just wait till you see the tools I have developed to assist my sellers. I also specialize in serving clients that are Veterans, and Seniors in transition. I have also acquired ample experience in serving those that are facing the challenge of a separation/divorce and through this experience, I have learned how to take such a stressful situation and make the process as smooth as possible for all parties. Often this process means extra steps, and I don't mind ensuring that my clients find the tough situation they are going through is easier by my extra efforts. If you are looking for an agent that thrives on serving her clients with the utmost of care, please consider reaching out. I would like to get to know you and let you get to know me and see if we can work together to meet your real estate needs.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Allegheny County?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Allegheny County?

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Allegheny County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
