Hi! My name is Sarah Madia. I've been a real estate agent for nine years and enjoy helping buyers and sellers in the city of Pittsburgh and in the north suburbs. I work full-time at RE/MAX Select Realty. RE/MAX is an international company. We're in over 90 countries!

"Real estate is your birthright."

Well, that's what my father, Frank Madia, says to me. He started as a realtor in the 1970's at RE/MAX in the north side of Pittsburgh. He has since been building high-end custom luxury homes for over 30 years with his company Madia Homes. My mother also has her realtor license and assists my dad with keeping the family business in check. My brother Luke also is a real estate agent and broker and works for Madia Homes building pretty amazing houses.

As a result, I have a unique real estate background. I grew up surrounded by blue prints. This has transferred to my personal career as a new construction specialist. I help buyers work the build process from obtaining financing, picking finishes, and finding a builder. I also have a lot of experience helping builders market their properties whether they have a completed model or will be designing a custom build for a new client. I've built two homes myself and understand the process from permitting through construction.

In addition to new construction, I help buyers and sellers find and seller existing homes throughout the Pittsburgh area. I like to be creative and network to find houses for my clients before they are listed or use unique marketing approaches to help sellers sell their homes. I also help sellers put a game plan together for staging their homes. It helps homes sell faster and for an optimal price!

Prior to becoming a real estate agent, I worked for nearly ten years in design and advertising. I graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor's degree in graphic design. I have worked on advertising campaigns for large companies such as Nestle and Time Warner while living in California. My background working in advertising and as a web designer translates into my marketing for my seller's properties. I understand how people interact with marketing pieces and I can help make your property shine!

In addition to selling real estate, I enjoy going to art gallery crawls and doing outdoor activities such as bike rides and paddle boarding at North Park. I'm a people person and try my best to make my clients relaxed and understand the buying and selling process.

I have worked with several realtors in the past and home buying can be stressful and complicated. Because Sarah thinks outside the box and asks the right questions she found me a beautiful house in a great neighborhood. She made the whole process low-stress and fun, it was a pleasure to work with Sarah.
