As a sellers’ realtor, my job is more than putting numbers together, making homes look really really pretty to captivate the buyers’ eye. It is working with the client in achieving their end goal, that of selling their home with nice pricepoint and sending them off on their new journey in good spirits. Not as easy as it appears.
I work very diligently toward ensuring my sellers’ pursuits are met. Each client has a different story, a different perspective, and a different end game. It is knowing and translating those entities into tangible outcomes that make my job intense yet truly satisfying.
At the closing table I can look at them and know we have attained all those goals, and they are ready to move forward. And that is my reason for being in this business. I so enjoy the satisfaction it brings.
As I stated it’s not easy. But at the end of the process I know that I have done my job, done it well, and onward to then next client.
I just sold home on Washington’s Landing for a very nice price. Those folks decided to build their dream home on the water in Oakmont. They did an outstanding job in designing it in every detail. The exuberance was definitely evident at the closing table. They are well on their way on their new adventure.

Hello Friends! I received this beautiful message today from a couple of my favorite clients. Tiffany & Jamie are really special people to me. I met them last winter in a bluster of icy-cold, stormy weather. We took a magical mystery tour of the City, ala snow boots, with ‘heal toe’ footwork, so as not to break our necks. They became part of my family and now refer to my mother as ‘Grandma.’ I love them dearly. It’s folks like Tiffany & Jamie that make my ‘job’ a dream come true! As the fall air is turning crisp, I want you to know that my business doesn’t stop, just because the weather conditions aren’t ideal. Please take a minute and read what my clients have to say, about working with me.
“Maggie Jayson is simply the best. I emailed her about a home in Rosslyn Farms that we fell in love with via Realtor.com. She responded almost immediately. After three months of emailing with Maggie we were finally ready to house hunt. I asked her if she would be our agent, regardless of the original house I contacted her about. She said she would, but that the original home had just gone under contract two days prior. We were going to be relocated here from Atlanta, for my husband’s job. We would be in town for 4 days and I had never even seen the city. Maggie planned for us to see as much of Pittsburgh as possible. She wanted us to get a feel for the city, and what it has to offer. We toured Sewickley, Mt. Lebanon, Oakmont and everywhere in-between. In three days, we saw over 25 homes! At the end of our trip, we put an offer on a 110 year old Victorian in Oakmont. We call it ‘our forever home.’ We couldn’t have picked a better realtor. Maggie went above and beyond for us. She even had snow boots and socks in her car, in case I needed them. We came from the South, after all. Her attention to detail and love of being a realtor shows in everything she does. She took such care with us through the process and continues to do so even after we moved in. She will always be a part of our lives — a dear friend. She truly is simply the best! – Tiffany St. John | Oakmont, Pa
Thank you for reading. Check out my latest listings here. And remember I’m yours in gettin’ it SOLD!
Many times folks selling their homes are very sentimental after living in their home for many years. We find ourselves attached to memories of laughter, love, holidays, growing pains in property. Those gardener extraordinaires have an especially hard time in passing the torch to the new buyer in hopes that they too will tend to the flowers they way they did.
Jim & John recently sold their home on Washington’s Landing to a wonderful young lady Carol. Jim is one of those gardener extraordinaires. He took Carol by the hand before closing on his house and showed her all the perrenials, explained in detail what special care each needed, and hoped for the best. Carol, rather a novice took note. Two years later Jim & John came back from Ft. Meyers FL to visit. Carol has definitely taken on the task for keeping the garden beautiful. Jim was very impressed and most of all grateful. It was a very happy reunion.
Bequething love & affection transcends into the real estate world. Sellers are so appreciative when buyers take on the task of keeping the beauty alive the original owner created. I have seen that repeatedly in my business. And it is very rewarding as a realtor.
