Hello Friends! 

The busy real estate season started with a bang. We recently had four new listings that went under contract within days with one listing selling within a matter of hours.  With this kind of activity, if you are looking to sell your home, please get in touch with me soon! At the moment it is a seller’s market for sure!

Oftentimes I am asked what is the current “Must Have” buyers are asking for.  Although there are several that have remained on that list for a while, you might find the current trend I’m seeing a little surprising. In the past they tended to be more utilitarian and were often overlooked when it came to decor, but today’s “Must Have” is oh-so-practical making life for all families so much easier.  

Pittsburgh has reached a milestone as 2016 marks the 200th Birthday of our great city.  Throughout the year there are many events planned to celebrate the Bicentennial in grand Pittsburgh style!  Check out the Pittsburgh Visitors Guide for all details.

March is full of fun things to do with family and friends!  Have a great month!
