Deb Reddick, Broker, SRES
It was a natural transition for me to enter into the real estate industry. I graduated from Clarion University with a degree in accounting,joined my father’s Century 21 agency as a staff accountant, but quickly moved into managing his office. I continued my education, obtained my agent license, and started representing clients. It’s still hard to believe I’ve been in this field since 1979!
In 1984, I obtained my broker’s license, becoming the second-generation of brokers in our family. My father retired, transitioning the agency to me and I continued to operate the firm using values he always espoused: treat people with respect and value relationships; work hard and handle business interactions with integrity; always strive to be your personal best and let those expectations come through in your work.
In 2001 we merged our agency with Coldwell Banker, and I stayed on for several years as their manager. I decided to try something new in a different industry, but after a few years, I genuinely missed working with my clients and the triumphant feeling that comes when a property transaction goes exactly the way my clients envisioned. When the opportunity arose, I joined a RE/MAX office in 2012 as their Broker.
By 2015, I joined my colleague Dawn Bierker, inThe Bierker Group,at the brokerage. I found that I enjoyed the new dynamics of being on a team and helping newer agents to develop their skills. Dawn purchased a brokerage in 2017, and I’ve moved that venture, serving as the Broker for the new office.
I’ve been in this business a long time, and I’ve seen many changes in the market...the good, the bad, & the very ugly in 2008. What hasn’t changed in real estate in all these years are the fundamental values I learned from my Dad. Serving as the broker of RE/MAX 360 is a natural fit because those same standards are the founding principles of the team and the brokerage.
And, on a personal note…I’m a lifelong resident of Pittsburgh, I’ve got two grown sons in the area and I love spending time with them and with my first grandson, whenever I get the chance. I also like to work out, love to travel and enjoy checking off things on my lengthy bucket list!
