Month at a Glance | September 2017

Hello Friends! 
As summer winds down and the start of a new school year begins, it reminds me of how while growing up, this time of year signified a new beginning of sorts. It meant getting back to a regular routine, going to school and meeting up with friends again, old and new- but it also often meant change. New classes, new teachers, and sometimes a new school.

Coincidentally, these past few months have meant a big change for me as well. Our oldest daughter, Grace just started 9th grade, so we now have a high schooler, and Ava has started 7th grade. Additionally, after much consideration, I recently made a change in Brokers that I represent and I am pleased to announce that I am now part of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.

As I am sure most can relate, when it comes to deciding whether to sell or buy a new home, or to take a new job offer, these are not decisions made lightly and often boils down to what is right for your family. Having recently made these kinds of decisions myself, I can fully appreciate the challenges and excitement that comes with these kinds of new changes.

If you find you are contemplating selling or buying a new home, feel free to reach out to me at any time. I’d be happy to lend my expertise and put a plan together specific to your needs and desires. Give me a call 412.310.7812.

Even though the kids are back to school and the lazy days of summer are behind us, there are still many things to do around town this month.  Check out the calendar for some fun ideas for you and your family.
Stay safe and have a great month!
