Knowledge of statistics and research expertise helps me price your home right!

JP Simpson (sold three of his houses under difficult conditions):
"I really appreciate the work you are doing... I just left looking at houses all day today. I told several different agents about you! I told them how I found you through your postings on the web. I told them about what you are doing.
Between you me and the brick wall, you're in the top 1% of agents I have ever met."

Communities I Serve
Long-term Shadyside resident, though I also cover the North Hills (Ross Township, Allison Park), South Hills (South Park), West Mifflin, and Mt. Washington.
The office focuses on Shadyside, CMU, Point Breeze, Highland Park, and Squirrel Hill, though I'm a "generalist" who ranges much further afield. In additional to geographical range, I have experience in varied areas of real estate: vacant land, condo, co-op, and multi-unit investment property, as well as single family homes.
