Long-time South Park resident and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Realtor®, Lori Maffeo was recently recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Presented by the Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh and given to agents with 25 years in the real estate industry.
While 25 years is quite a milestone in any profession, Maffeo is most proud of Berkshire Hathaway’s Chairman’s Circle Gold award she received as one of the top 2% agents nationally. This is a tremendous accomplishment considering there are more than 1,300 offices of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, with over 43,000 active agents.
Maffeo is quick to note that her quarter of a century success as a Realtor® is the result of all the help and support from a lot of people.
“I could not have done it without plenty of help from family, friends and even strangers who I have sold homes to. Now, I’m finding a home for their children. The vast Majority of my business is based on referrals, about, 95%,” Maffeo states proudly. That’s a sign of great trust in a Realtor®
It’s this type of loyalty that makes for a successful career in real estate. “I have the passion and insight for helping folks fulfill their dream of homeownership. “It’s never about just selling houses, it’s all about building relationships and trust on both sides,” Maffeo adds. “And, it’s the same process whether I’m listing or selling a home.”
When quizzed about future plans. Maffeo quickly quipped, “Stay the course. I have two children in college and another one starting next September.”
