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!

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.

Luz Campbell
Coldwell Banker
About Luz

When it comes to choosing a Realtor, finding someone who actually grew up in the area they represent is a rarity. I not only grew up in Pittsburgh, but I still live there with my family. I went to North Allegheny, live in Pine and have children in the Pine-Richland School District, so I know the Pittsburgh market better than most. Prior to becoming a Realtor® nearly ten years ago, I previously spent many years working in new construction. I pride myself on a thorough understanding of my clients needs and desires. Another key to my success is my ability to make my clients feel as though they are my only client. My real estate background is exceptionally diverse, I have extensive knowledge about the construction industry as well as the real estate market. Bridging both, my strengths also include understanding all aspects of the business and the various financing options available to homebuyers. Adding to my diversity, I am also fluent in Spanish. I have a genuine interest in the needs of my clients. I always take the path that’s going to make them happy. I’m patient and understand that finding the right home takes time. Due to my targeted searches I am able to keep your home search focused and efficient, thus making the process quick and easy. But sometimes it's a little more difficult to find that perfect home, which is where my patience and diligence benefit you. I have had several clients that I worked with for years before they found the perfect home. It all comes down to that I first look to do what’s right for my clients. On the selling side, my attention to my clients is just as detailed. I do extensive market research to make certain the home is appropriately priced. A key to my success in getting my clients the best value from their home, which means a need to present your home in the best possible light. A complimentary part of my service is that all my listings benefit from the expertise of professional stagers and photographers. This makes your home more desirable and is extremely crucial in generating traffic and getting top dollar. I market my homes in media outlets best suited to each individual property - not just in generic online ads

Adam Slivka
C21 Fairways
About Adam

Adam's background is in mathematics and education. Holding a bachelors in math and a master's degree in education Adam has always felt his role in real estate was to educate inform his clients, not "sell" them. With this in mind Adam has spent much time learning himself. Having earned a broker's license Adam has a better understanding of the ins and outs than most agents in the marketplace. In addition Adam has mentored under and has been coached by several top industry coaches and marketing consultants. All of this Transends into the client service and expertise he offers clients during a transaction. Buying or selling a home is a huge monetary investment and Adam believes that the standard to get licensed is just not enough to properly serve his clients. Utilizing marketing tactics for 2020 and beyond Adam's sellers on average have a higher list to sell ratio than the marketplace as a whole. In other words, Adam's clients net more money. In addition, Adam has helped numerous buyers navigate the obstacles of lending, selling to buy, or overcome the current level of competition. Over the last several years Adam and his team have helped hundreds of clients meet their real estate goals. He has consistently been ranked in the top of production in Westmoreland county and the Pittsburgh Metro as a whole. At the end of the day Adam's goal is to innovate the process of buying and selling and always improve the client experience.

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)

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Pittsburgh?
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.

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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Pittsburgh?
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 in Pittsburgh 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 in Pittsburgh 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.
