SPONSORED CONTENT BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT SPONSORED CONTENT Northwood’s Dave Bryant Always There for You W ith more than 21 years in the real estate business, North- wood Realty’s Dave Bryant has been around long enough to know that what homebuyers and sellers are looking for from a Realtor isn’t a glitzy website and flashy presentations, it’s hon- esty and hard work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And, as a retired Navy veteran who was a Readiness and Personnel Analyst and a Master Training Specialist while in service to his coun- try, Bryant mastered the skills required to help him guide people looking to buy and sell homes every day. “People want someone who’s going to work hard for them no mat- ter when they call, and help them understand the complexities of the real estate market,” he says. “What I learned in the Navy helped me teach others about situations that I had analyzed, which was a natural fit for real estate. It’s true that today’s consumers are more educated than ever before, but there’s still so much in real estate that needs the guidance of a Realtor in order for them to become successful home- buyers or sellers.” In that regard, Bryant loves working with first-time homebuyers to help ensure that they have a positive experience, and his nearly 80 percent referral rate is a testament to his success in helping clients make their move the rewarding and celebratory event that it should be. A native of Millvale and Shaler Area graduate, Bryant has dominat- ed the Millvale market—selling more homes in the 15209 zip code than any other real estate agent since 2006, although he serves the entire metropolitan Pittsburgh market. (Source: West Penn Multi-List Inc. - 5/1/17) Part of the reason he’s had such success in Millvale is that the com- munity is head and shoulders above what it was when he was a child. “It’s very affordable and it’s been on the rebound for years, getting better and better as a community,” he explains. “Lawrenceville prices people out of the market, so they look across the river and see a good community, a great school district and a really good house at bargain prices.” Dave was thorough and made sure everything was taken care of. Even when I didn't know what questions to ask, he was making sure everything was safe and reliable. He was prompt with communication and the communication throughout the buying process was smooth and coordinated. — M.R. (Feb. 1, 2017) Bryant has a team comprised of a licensed real estate agent per- sonal assistant and two buyer agents working alongside him who can handle any real estate transaction, no matter how complicated. He has been elected by other Realtors in the region to sit on the Board of Directors for the Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pitts- burgh for a 3-year term. And, when he’s not serving clients, he’s an avid supporter of the Northwood Charitable Foundation, which helps raise financial support for local housing-related charities like the Fish- er House. “Helping people is what I do,” Bryant says. “I always tell my clients, ‘I’ll always be there for you when you need me most,’ and I live by that.” For more information on Dave Bryant, go to his website at davebryant.northwood.com, where you can see all the houses he’s currently listing.
