Ryan Williamson recommends Laurie Stevens

This was my first time buying a house. Laurie went way above and beyond to help me out in every step of the process. She was very on top on things and I always felt like she had my best interest in mind. If you're in the market, I would 100% recommend working with Laurie.

Rita Martha Smochko recommends Liz Forrester

I thought my condo would take months to sell, but Liz priced it properly. We had 6 offers in 1 day and accepted an offer more than 10,000$ over the asking price.
Super easy to work with and her knowledge and attention to details were so helpful.

Ashley recommends The Reed Pirain Group

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.

Antonella Recchia Holt recommends Laurie Stevens

Medical Intensive Care Unit Registered Nurse

Laurie was the best!!! We decided on trying to get a house and inquired the night before actually meeting to see a house together! She was so helpful on understanding taxes and things that you don’t necessarily pay attention to or think about when you’re looking for a home and deciding on an affordable monthly payment. Laurie was flexible with my ever changing work schedule and still managed to get us in to see lots of homes. We’re so lucky we met Laurie!!

LaCree Parrish recommends Alex Wroblicky

Alex was great to work with and I will be working with him again as well as referring friends to him. What I appreciated the most was his attention to detail when gathering information about comps so my offer was just right. Thanks again Alex, I'll be in touch soon.

Fr Albin McGinnis recommends Alex Wroblicky

Pastor of St Matthias Parish

Alex has walked us through the sale of three buildings so far and is helping to market three other buildings. In all of this he has been very helpful in maneuvering through the mine field of Diocesan rules for sales, that has been the biggest difficulty for me. Now he is doing a great job in helping us market the other properties we are trying to sell. I would strongly recommend Alex, as he has continually kept us in the loop of the legalities and has been most helpful at every stage of this process.

Steve McCarron recommends The Reed Pirain Group

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.

Kristina Waltman recommends Rick Brown

Happy Home Owner

Rick helped us find our first home in 2013, and went to bat to get us an incredible deal and a home we absolutely loved. When we were ready to move 7 years later, we immediately thought of Rick. He was just as patient and caring with our questions as he was the first time around, and easily navigated us through critical conversations to help us determine our budget, the area in which we wanted to live, and more.

We ended up finding the home of our dreams, selling our home, and moving all during the COVID-19 pandemic, and while I think that some of these things worked themselves out by chance, I do believe the transitions would not have been nearly as smooth, and would have been much more stressful without Rick by our side.

We plan to stay here until we get tired of doing steps, but when the kids go off to college and we're ready to downsize, we will call Rick to help us! He's more than our realtor. He's a friend forever.

Kathy Sikora recommends Alex Wroblicky

Alex was very professional. He was helpful and informative as we worked through the sale during covid 19. Our closing was changed, moved back almost 3 months due to bank delays. He kept us on target and calmed our worries. He would be a perfect agent for all.

Evan Dunham recommends Rick Brown

Hardware Tech

I am highly recommending Rick Brown to anyone who is looking to buy a new home, especially if you’re a first time home buyer like I was. He is super friendly and down to earth and will always keep your best interests in mind. Buying a new home can be stressful at times but Rick will always make sure you feel at ease. He is very knowledgeable and will guide you through the entire process step by step while answering any and all of your questions. I knew right away that I was in good hands with him and even after closing on my new home, Rick has followed up with me and continued his support. He will always go out of his way to make sure you're satisfied with your home buying experience. If or when I buy another home, it will be Rick by my side again. Thanks Rick!

Kelly DeFrancisis recommends The Reed Pirain Group

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!

Moira Kaleida recommends The Reed Pirain Group

Home Buyer

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!

Dara Braitman recommends Rick Brown

I would recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy a home. Rick conducts himself in the most professional of ways. He explains things well, is 100 percent reliable, is
a good communicator, in touch when he says he will be, and just a generally really nice guy. He is more than willing to help arrange things such as an inspection and closing company particulars, etc., was incredibly helpful explaining things to me about the process as we went along, and negotiated on my behalf. He loves what he does which makes it that much more of a pleasure to work with him. Highly recommended.

Yuet Komisars recommends Rick Brown


I stumbled upon Rick when I requested an agent to contact me for a house on sale in Fineview, Pittsburgh. Rick returned that call. I have been interested in purchasing a rental property for over 7 years. My interest started with attending many Pittsburgh Historical Landmark neighborhood tours. During that time, I have also worked with a few realtors from different companies. Somehow, they were not a good fit due to lack of knowledge, narrow focus, etc. When Rick drove me around the different neighborhoods and gave me an overview of the market, demographics and rental opportunities available, I immediately knew he knows "his stuff". Having bought my principal home 20 years ago, I had thankfully forgotten the purchasing process involved. Rick took the time to simplify the steps and patiently guided me along the way, providing helpful advice and encouragement where needed. His real estate knowledge over a wide area, upbeat demeanor, professionalism and attention to details were much appreciated. Thank you Rick. Yuet

Ashley Brooks recommends The Reed Pirain Group

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.

Samantha did an excellent service by facilitating the purchase of my rental property. Her attention to detail and knowledge of real estate was extremely advantageous to successfully accomplishing the acquisition of the property.
