QUALITATIVE QUOTES & BACKGROUND INFO
Through John Petrack, our association's executive vice president and principal spokesperson, we tap the knowledge of our 2,500 members and their "in the trenches" view of real estate trends in and around Allegheny County. From the latest national housing trends to the story about Tudor architecture in Shadyside, we have the resources and expertise to provide insightful content for your article or broadcast.
