Pittsburgh Business TimesCongratulations to Acero Realty’s newest agents: Managing Director Emily Murphy and Senior Sales Agent Michael Koklarinis who are featured as “People on the Move” in the latest issue of the Pittsburgh Business Times.

Both Emily and Michael joined the Acero team in January as part of the agency’s planned growth. Located in both the North Hills (Emily) and South Hills (Michael) the Acero team is now poised to more easily address the needs of buyers and sellers throughout the Greater Pittsburgh Region.

That flexibility is a key factor in the Acero team’s ability to keep pace with what is currently a fast-moving real estate market. Because there are fewer homes available, buyers are facing a competitive environment and sellers are benefiting from the increased demand. Those in the market can expect the brisk activity to continue in the coming months as signs of spring slowly erase the last remnants of winter. Now is definitely the time if you, or someone you know, is looking to buy or sell. Reach out to Emily and Michael and they will gladly lead you through the process.


Acero Realty Adds Two Agents and Expands Reach Into The North Hills

South Hills-based Acero Realty has added two agents to its team, expanding the agency’s size and reach from Pittsburgh’s South Hills through the city and into the Northern suburbs.

Emily Murphy has assumed the role of Managing Director and will focus primarily on helping the company expand and fully develop a footprint in Pittsburgh’s North Hills communities. With more than a decade of industry experience, she will rely on her extensive market knowledge and passion for customer service especially when it comes to advocating for clients on both sides of the table.

As the Senior Sales Associate, Michael Koklarinis will primarily serve Pittsburgh’s South Hills, an area with which he is well-familiar as a lifelong native. A licensed real estate agent, he has an extensive background in both sales and marketing which will serve him well in establishing relationships and guiding both individuals and families through the process of home buying and selling.

Consistently recognized by major travel and financial organizations as one of the most livable cities with one of the most viable economies in the U.S., Pittsburgh is a market where real estate professionals see consistent demand for the great values it provides, according to Acero President, Marc Schein. As such, the strategic growth of his team will serve to meet that demand and serve a wider audience.

“As a resident of Bethel Park, the South Hills is a community that I know well and am proud to call home,” he said. “No matter the specific location, potential homeowners will discover that a strong sense of community centers Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods, offering a unique personality and style of living with tremendous schools, great parks and incredible families. With major news and travel organizations heralding our region, its assets are no longer a secret. The addition of Emily and Michael to our team is an exciting step for us and an important response to market demand.”

The Homeless Children’s Education Fund (HCEF) is very pleased that Acero Realty has chosen to support our organization and the children experiencing homelessness that we serve. HCEF’s mission is to advance the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County. HCEF is a private not-for- profit organization that receives no government funding. Our out-of-school time educational programs and awareness efforts are supported completely by businesses like Acero Realty as well as individual donations and our fundraising events. In addition to the financial support that Acero Realty’s effort will provide to HCEF their work will also help us create greater community awareness of the plight and promise of children experiencing homelessness.

Allegheny County school districts reported over 2000 school age children who experienced homelessness during the 2013/2014 school year. HCEF along with Acero Realty and our other community partners can make sure these children get the education they deserve and need to grow up and have productive lives as contributing member of society.
