Light UP Night In Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh comes alive tonight! Enjoy the views of the City! If you are new to the City please ask me for a personal tour around the area. Lunch and/or dinner included.
I have lived in Pittsburgh most of my life. As a relocation specialist for over nine years I am familiar with each and every neighborhood.  I’m happy to also make arrangements for your stay.
Pittsburgh is one place special. With the rivers and trails, Cultural District, urban development you will find a City truly in transition. Enjoy the outdoors with boating, the arts with Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Opera, CLO, and the many culinary speciality restaurants in and around the town. Just a wonderful flavor of the old and the new.
Enjoy our City at its finest!

The Lives In The Day of A Realtor: Chapter 33

I am so blessed to know so many lovely folks through my daily mission as a realtor. I was introduced to a dear sweet woman of 95 years young several months ago. She was living in her home of 26 years, two husbands later whom passed away, she found herself unable to stay. While her mind was sound, her legs would just give out. And it was not safe to be there alone. So off she went to lovely Willows near Ohio Valley Hospital.
We met on weekly basis to list the home, work through offer and sale. Each time I visited I learned a lot about this dear soul. And her previous husbands and two outstanding sons, one local and one in Oregon. She had a treasure full of memories, life’s fortunes as well as misgivings, and unmistakable humor.
She collected salt & pepper shakers. When her family traveled they would always bring her back salt & pepper shakers from each and every exotic location. While the sons were clearing out the house I asked the owner if I could have the chicks for remembrance. What a gift!  They sit perched behind my kitchen sink. I think of her daily.
I am blessed…I love my job…I love my clients (most of the time) and I love knowing that each day brings someone whom I can learn from and share while assisting them in buying and/or selling their home.

Takin’ It To The Street

 

I passed Real Estate Networking 101 with flying colors. Yes, to be in this business you must know the who’s and how’s of networking. It is imperative that you have a good working relationship with fellow realtors and professionals. Here’s an example of how I networked and got a listing sold.

This story is about 5904 Stanton Ave., in Highland Park. This listing came to me as a referral from an attorney, who had handled a closing for me earlier this year. As soon as I began marketing this property, I immediately began sharing the news with anyone and everyone. You never know who could buy it. One day when I was getting my hair done, I started talking about Stanton Ave. And would’t you know it, my hair stylist and her husband decided to take a look at it and fell in love. We’ve since closed on the house and the sellers and buyers are all happily situated in their new homes.

Keeping professional relationships and constantly sharing my passion for real estate is what made this possible. Whether it be in real estate or in my personal life, I have created a vast network of relationships. One of my passions is connecting folks with like interests as well as finding them homes where they will be most happy. So ‘Takin’ It To The Street’ is what you will get when you hire Maggie Jayson!
