Dawn Bierker, Associate Broker, CRS, SRES, ABR
I began my career in real estate by becoming an owner of investment property while working in another field. I wanted to be involved in the management of my property, too, which rapidly led me to an understanding of some of the complexities involved in being an investor and a landlord. Owning real estate opened up a whole world of choices, decisions and exciting projects! I found that I spent increasing amounts of time talking to people about their own homes and plans.
As a result of these early experiences, I acquired my license as a Realtor in 2002, and began working as an agent. I found that I loved the field! Working as a Realtor allowed me to help others to dive into owning their own homes, and I could provide them with the support and information that I lacked as a buyer early in my career.
I achieved my Real Estate Broker license in 2009, through the required years of transactions and additional coursework and examination. This level of licensure is held by only 10% of agents in Pennsylvania. I’ve also attained other designations and training, including Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and Accredited Buyer’s Representative. My training and experience has strengthened my belief that buyers and sellers each have different needs and will benefit from being represented by a professional with experience working only for their interests.
I later became a Team Leader, starting The Bierker Group, and in 2017, I took the exciting step of becoming the owner of RE/MAX 360, a brokerage located in Ross Township. This step will allow me to support professional agents who are passionate about our industry and about serving clients’ needs.
My overarching goal has always been to develop and offer very solid skills in negotiating deals for clients of the Bierker Group- from the first call to the closing table- and I truly enjoy serving as a guide for every step of the process. I most enjoy seeing clients who are happy with the outcome, content with the decisions that they’ve made, and sure that they got the best deal possible.
On a personal note, I have been married for twenty years and my husband and I have two school-aged daughters in North Allegheny School District. When I’ve got some free time (and I’m not at a school event or sports practice), I enjoy playing golf, hiking and camping, and traveling. I’m the proud mom of a great rescue dog and support Animal Friends in the North Hills.
