Pittsburgh Property Diva - Welcome home!

Congrats to Dawn – Winner of my Holiday Steelers Tickets “Give Back”

Posted by Lauren Klein on December 22, 2016  /  in Awards, Blog, Holidays In Pittsburgh  /  Comments off

Thanks to all who liked, shared and commented on my Giving Back For the Holidays post! It’s always great to have a little fun with my clients and followers, and always exciting to give a great big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people in my life.

A special congratulations goes to Dawn… the mother of Ben and Carl, from Squirrel Hill.  She is the winner of the Steelers/Ravens tickets to see the game at Heinz Field on Christmas Day.  I met Dawn at Starbucks to present her with her tickets… and to my surprise she had some small gifts for me as well.  Talk about grateful!  We spent about an hour together and it was indeed a charming and enlightening experience.  Dawn explained to me that she was especially grateful for this Christmas because she was finally going to have both of her sons with her at the same time… only to find out she won the tickets.  So what does a mother do…?  Ben and Carl are now going to the Steelers game while mom cheers them on from the comfort of her living room on Christmas day.

A mother myself… it brought tears to my eyes.  It’s what we do.  Thanks, Dawn, for a wonderful time and being such a great mom!  And thanks again to everyone for helping me help YOU achieve the dream of home ownership in Pittsburgh.  The pleasure is always mine.

 

Giving Back for the Holidays

Posted by Lauren Klein on December 13, 2016  /  in Awards, Holidays In Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Things To Do in Pittsburgh  /  Comments off

By now you’ve seen my post on my favorite holiday activities in Pittsburgh.  And by now I hope you’ve realized that I am so very grateful for all of the blessings in my life… my family, my friends, and my wonderful clients.

There are so many different ways to express my gratitude that I worry at times that I don’t do it enough.  You can only say “thank you” so many times.  You hope that everyone in your life realizes you really mean it… and for the most part, if you’re sincere, they do.

The tough part is coming up with different ways to say thank you… that people will remember.  Well… here’s another one…  how about giving tickets to the Steelers game versus the Ravens on Christmas Day?  Hmm… that sounds like a “real” thank you… doesn’t it?  But I’d have to give out hundreds of tickets… and… well… I don’t have hundreds of Steelers/Ravens tickets.

I only have two.

I can’t play favorites… that just wouldn’t be fair.  I can, however, have a contest!  So… here it goes… Win 2 tickets to see the Steelers play the Ravens on Christmas day this year!  All you have to do to enter  is “Like” my Facebook page, share this post and tag your date.

I’ll pick the winner on Monday, December 19th and deliver a big “Thank You” in the form of 2 tickets to the game at Heinz Field.

Happy Holidays… and THANK YOU to all my friends, family and real estate clients for an incredible year!

 

An unforgettable evening with The Icons of Pittsburgh (vol. 2)

Posted by Chris Klein on October 18, 2016  /  in Awards, News, Pittsburgh, Press  /  Comments off

Lauren and I had a fun opportunity to get all dressed up and out on the town with some of Pittsburgh’s greatest earlier this month. We attended Maniac Magazine’s Icons of Pittsburgh event on Oct. 4 at the Andy Warhol Museum. (Of course you know Andy Warhol himself is an undeniable icon of Pittsburgh, and the museum, if you haven’t been, is an absolute must-see.)

The Icons of Pittsburgh is an annual award and recognition program that was created by Maniac Magazine. A panel of judges selects each year’s icons, based on strict criteria, from Pittsburgh’s professionals, entrepreneurs and leaders. These are the movers and shakers of Pittsburgh. They are given Icon status if, in addition to their professional contributions to Pittsburgh, they also bring a high level of style and class to our beautiful city.

As you can imagine, it was a great honor for Lauren and I to meet and mingle with this year’s amazing icons at the Warhol Museum. Lauren was invited as a VIP because she’s being featured next month on the cover of Maniac Magazine, which is Pittsburgh’s premier media outlet for fashion, beauty, travel, style and culture. The story will highlight Lauren’s work as the Pittsburgh Property Diva, and we all know how much style she conducts herself with in that role!

I am, as always, very proud of Lauren. We’ll share more about her story in Maniac Magazine when it hits newsstands!

There was another reason this night was so big for us. As some of you may already know, I created a Facebook page called Pittsburgh Beautiful, which invites people to share their original photos of what makes Pittsburgh beautiful in their eyes. In the last seven months it has really blossomed, garnering about 1,000 new followers every day. We’re up to 67,000 followers so far!

We’ve gained national and international attention, and at Icons of Pittsburgh we announced a new partnership with Maniac Magazine. We debuted Pittsburgh Beautiful on the big screen at the event, sharing hundreds of breathtaking photos of Pittsburgh, submitted by Pittsburghers all over the world. Our website is also off to a great start! It was great exposure for the site, which Pittsburgh Property Diva has supported from the beginning, and I look forward to even more growth.

To say the least, our evening at Icons of Pittsburgh was huge for Pittsburgh Property Diva and Pittsburgh Beautiful. It makes Lauren and I happy to no end, because we are Pittsburghers right down to our core. This work is our passion, but it also helps shine a spotlight on the truly remarkable place that Pittsburgh is. We’re honored to call it home.

If we can ever help you, or someone you know, find a home in this beautiful city, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

Pittsburgh is one of America’s most livable cities

Posted by Lauren Klein on August 31, 2016  /  in Awards, Blog, Buyers, News, Pittsburgh, Trends  /  Comments off

You know, I’m a Pittsburgh native and I love this place. It’s really a great city to call home. But you don’t have to just take my word for it.

Pittsburgh consistently ranks on numerous lists and surveys of America’s top cities. Our economy is a big reason: the job market is strong and the housing is affordable. Check out this 2015 story from Money magazine, which named Pittsburgh the No. 1 city to live in the Northeast. That’s a pretty awesome title, considering the other great cities that are also here in the Northeast.

And in 2014, The Economist ranked Pittsburgh the most livable city in the continental United States. We scored high for stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Read more about it here.

You can also learn more about Pittsburgh on the About Pittsburgh page on Pittsburgh Property Diva’s new website. We’ve compiled some great information there, covering topics from schools to entertainment. And of course, I’d love to be a resource for you. I can tell you much more about my home city as I take you around to look for your perfect new home. Please get in touch if you’re considering or planning on a move to Pittsburgh!

I am so proud of Lauren for all of her hard work that earned her this prestigious award. You can read more about it in AIOREP’s news release.
