My wife and I are relocating to Pittsburgh in a month and are looking to buy our first home. We are looking in the Mt.Lebanon area. Does anyone have any recommendations on an agent who can be patient with first time buyers?

Mt. Lebanon, PA is a wonderful community.... I know, because I have lived in Mt. Lebanon for over fifteen years. Mt. Lebanon has a wonderful community magazine, MtL, that is published monthly and distributed free of charge to all residents. Plus, Mt. Lebanon is conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, major transporation arteries, and ten minutes to downtown Pittsburgh. I am a full time Realtor with RE/MAX Premier Group, with office in Upper St. Clair, and represent sellers and buyers of homes.

Hi Derek,

My wife and I bought our first home in Mt. Lebanon five years ago. The seller's agent was great. She really made us feel comfortable during the whole process. In short, she's a pro. We are actually considering a job-related relocation in the next month or so and will use her as our agent without a doubt.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about her or our experience. I would be glad to help!

I highly recommend Carri Czyzewski (Northwood Realty). My husband and I worked with her and had a wonderful experience. A long-time resident of the South Hills (read: very familiar with the region), she is patient and knowledgeable. Two thumbs up!

Look into the Mt Lebo Howard Hanna office. They definitely have the most listings in the area. Whoever you use, make sure they know the area. Interview them. We bought a house in Mt Lebanon several years ago using an agent who was not able to give good advice about the best locations, streets, busy areas, etc because she did not know the area, Mistake. We just sold that house!

I will do one better than throw my name in, I will throw in reviews written by my former clients as I am the most positively reviewed Realtor in Pittsburgh. Search for me on Zillow.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Brian your friends with Ryan Ireland, right? I think I remember your name when he was buying his house. We went to high school together.

You have several agents already offering to assist you with your first home purchase and you will no dobt have more. I suggest you contact at least three, interview them and get references.

Also I highly recommend you contact a mortgage lender for a pre-approval (unless you are paying cash) to determine your buying power and what type of financing best suits you best and a good faith estimate of the costs involved in purchasing. I have been helping people find and purchase homes for 35 years and one of the best mortgage people I have ever dealt with is Jim Franco owner of Welcome Home Finance 724-772-3333 extension 2114.

Good luck and welcome to Pittsburgh,

Most agents in my company work in the South Hills. Here is our website: http://www.ppmrealty.com. You can find info on individual agents under the "meet our team" tab under "contact us". I suggest you start by speaking with Reed Pirain. He is definitely an expert in that area.
