The Reed Pirain Group group was an outstanding agency to work with. We were provided many services in addition to selling our home such as staging and a storage pod. His photographer is highly skilled. Reed made sure every detail was taken care of and took much stress off our family. Our home was sold in just 2 days.

We've completed two successful transactions working with Kirstin Rockenstein with the NextHome PPM Realty. She's responsive (and will work with you over text, which is a huge plus!), very friendly and easy to work with. Her negotiation skills were particularly impressive, and she truly went above and beyond to ensure our needs were met throughout the process. We'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Pittsburgh area. She has a deep knowledge of the area and takes excellent care of her clients.

My wife and I couldn't be happier with The Reed Pirain Group at PPM Realty! From start to finish, the personal attention, quick responsiveness to our questions, guidance, knowledge and overall friendliness of everyone involved! We would highly recommend Reed and his group of staff for all of your real estate meeds!!

Reed and Leslie did a fantastic job selling our home. The inclusion of staging and short-term storage to de-clutter our home and make it really show well was a huge plus! Additionally he was very detail-oriented, we didn't need to go over the same things multiple times. He kept the buyer and buyer's agent on task as well, and we seldom had to follow up to make sure things were getting done and we were staying on schedule. Reed also helped us with being familiar with services in the area to help with minor repairs after inspection, and locate moving help in a pinch when a moving company cancelled on us the day before closing! As we were sitting at closing, my wife and I were baffled that other realtors can hold the same title and make the same amount on the sale of your home when they don't work nearly as hard as Reed and his team. I don't think you could find a more dedicated, friendly, and knowledgeable realtor and would recommend Reed and his team without reservation.

Michelle was invaluable to our search for a home. She did a wonderful job finding a home that was right for us. She is a great communicator, and made the process very easy for us.

Estate Trustee
Reed Pirain and his group were outstanding. They helped us accurately price our home. After meeting with us, Reed assembled a very creative narrative that helped us understand why our house needed to be priced the way it did. Within the narrative they also offered advice on how the house should be staged to sell. Agreeing to all their recommendations and executing the plan, we then put the house on the market. BOOM! House sold in two days for over asking price. At that point, Reed and his team guided us to the closing table. If you need someone to help you sell your home that actual knows the craft of selling a home, please call the outstanding team of PPM Realty and Reed Pirain.

Data Analyst, Sales
We had the pleasure of renting an awesome, super updated 2 bed/2 bath apartment in uptown Mt. Lebanon for almost four years! Dave showed us the apartment, which was newly renovated by PPM with all new appliances, granite countertops, and new hardwood flooring. It was the perfect spot for us and so hard to leave! We never had any issues with maintenance, as any issue or fix needed was addressed very quickly and their auto pay system was easy to set up & use.

We took advantage of PPMs renter to buyer program, where we used Casey as our broker. She was extremely helpful, patient and thorough through the entire process. She helped us understand the legal documentation and helped us find our first home in Upper St. Clair! I highly recommend Casey as an agent and PPM NextHome for your next rental or purchase / sale!

Michelle did a fantastic job helping us to find our forever home. The quick and thorough process was a joy to go through instead of a nightmare! From finding the listing, to viewing the property, to submitting the bid, and through to closing, we couldn't have asked for a better team to work through. Highly recommended!

Educator - Client of Next Home
I had an extremely positive experience with Next Home. They made everything SO EASY. I have always heard of experiences with home buying being arduous, but they made it a pleasant experience. Jen would try to set up home times as soon as I sent her places and did a thorough job of giving honest, quality critiques of the home. She looked beyond the visual appearance of the home and investigated structure and moisture for us. After we chose a home, the most amazing thing Jen did was fight for us. She helped us negotiate and get what we wanted and deserved. She looked up costs for fixes and potential people who could do them, she recommended inspectors, and even paint colors! She was great. She also kept an open communication line with the other realtor and our financing company so everyone was on the same page. Towards the end we had an issue with our closing company which would’ve pushed our closing, but Jen came to the rescue. She drove ALL over Pittsburgh - to the tax offices, closing company, etc. to deliver paperwork to each building that was needed to execute the sale. Needless to say we closed ON TIME for her hard work. We are so happy with our choice to use Next Home and we hope that everyone can have as positive of an experience as we did.

From start to finish Reed and his group make the process easy on you. This is the second time we have used them and have been happy. Reed is knowledgeable and thorough, and we would recommend him and his group.

Casey from the Reed Pirain Group did an awesome job helping me find a house. She never took longer than an hour or so to get back to me either via text, email, or phone call. During closing, she went above and beyond helping me go over documents and helped me understand exactly what was going on. She is a great employee for RPG and I would (and already have) absolutely recommend her.

I cannot praise the excellence and professionalism of The Reed Pirain Group enough. Reed has assisted me in several real estate searches, offers, and successful closings. Very pleased throughout all my experiences working with Reed and his team.

The Pirain Group were wonderful. From the first preliminary meeting through our home closing, Casey and Reed were happy to help and answer, in a timely manner, any questions we had. Initially, we thought the home buying process was going to be daunting, but they made it very easy and understandable. Casey was extremely available to accompany us to open houses. Casey worked closely with our mortgage broker and our closing company to make sure the deal went through smoothly. We were difficult to deal with at times, and they handled us well. We are extremely happy with the outcome of our purchase, and we would definitely use them again.

I highly recommend the home buyer program for current renters with PPM! Casey Smith was my agent and I couldn't be happier with the job she did. We finally found the house that was a fit for me! The transition went smoothly and no problem breaking my lease early!
