As a former VP of Marketing for a privately held company for 12 years, I have a deep background in marketing and sales. I chose to be a real estate professional because of two reasons: I am very entrepreneurial and I get the opportunity to be a part of the most important investment that people will make; the purchase of or sale of their home. Although I am based out of the Fox Chapel Office, I have been a part of transactions all throughout western Pennsylvania. I have done deals from North Versailles to Murrysville, from Ohio Township to Peters Township; there is nowhere I will not travel for my clients! On a personal note, I am the son of the former Pirates great Bob Friend and I played on the PGA tour for a number of years.
