Pleased to debut Talk Diva on News Radio 1020 KDKA in Pittsburgh Saturday mornings at 8 AM. It will be a little bit of Real Estate, a little bit of fashion and a whole lot of fun!
I am so excited to let you all know that the new issue of Maniac Magazine is on newsstands today! I love reading this great Pittsburgh publication every time it comes out, but this one is especially exciting because…I’m in it!
Several months back, Maniac Magazine invited me to be featured for my work as the Pittsburgh Property Diva. I even got a cover shoot out of the deal! It was a great honor AND a total blast.
Chris went with me to the photo shoot at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex. What a gorgeous facility! I had an amazing time with the folks at Maniac, as well as my fellow cover subjects. Chris captured some fun behind-the-scenes shots. As you can see, we celebrated accordingly when the shoot was done!
I’m grateful to April Hubal and all the fine people at Maniac Magazine for featuring me in your fantastic publication. Maniac Magazine is all about celebrating Pittsburgh and its renaissance as one of our country’s most interesting, stylish and cultural cities. I’m proud to be a part of it. I hope you will pick up a copy if you have a chance!
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!
It’s not hard to be proud of Lauren and all of her hard work as the Pittsburgh Property Diva. Every day I am amazed by her commitment to her clients and to top-notch customer service. Client after client gives Lauren the highest marks and compliments. Check it out for yourself here and here.
In 2015, Lauren was designated a Top 10 real estate agent in client satisfaction by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals (AIOREP). This is an award that is given only to those real estate agents with a 10-out-of-10 client-satisfaction rating and NO negative feedback. Winners are nominated by their clients and/or peers and go through a rigorous review process, wherein the AIOREP considers their awards, sales volume, industry reputation and associations. They must be determined to be an industry leader and top-rated not only by clients but peers, as well.
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.
Finally, thank you to all of Lauren’s clients for reviewing her so highly and for nominating her as a Top 10 real estate agent in client satisfaction.
