 Want to learn more about me?

                Right now, you are thinking about buying your new home, or selling your old house, and you are looking for someone to help guide you through the process.  But with so many real estate brokers and agents out there, who is the right one to choose?  Who can you trust to protect your personal interests?  Let me help you understand why I am the right choice by telling you about myself, and my broker, Howard Hanna.

                Hi there, my name is Daniel Faust, but you can call me Dan.  I spent over 10 years protecting the interests of millions of people as a Corporate Internal Auditor for some of the most highly regarded Pittsburgh based banks and industry.  I am a Certified Fraud Examiner, and above all else, believe the only way to do business is in a highly ethical and moral manner.  No exceptions.  That being said, I will never sacrifice your personal interests for my personal gain.  I also pay very special attention to detail and am helpfully analytical when it comes to determining the best decision on a home.  Who better to help you sell your house or buy your next home?

                 I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and lived there until we moved to Pittsburgh in the mid-90’s for my dad’s work.  Having lived in Mt. Lebanon in the South Hills, and receiving my BSBA in Accounting from the University of Pittsburgh in Oakland, I know how to get from the South Hills to Oakland in under 30 minutes during rush hour traffic; ask me how!  During my 2 year work assignment in Detroit, I lived in Brownstown and attended the University of Michigan for my MBA, so I know the areas in southeast Michigan and can refer you to some of the best agents there and in Ann Arbor. 

                My wife is originally from Hermitage, Pennsylvania and works as a Physician for UPMC here in Pittsburgh, as well as in Greenville, Pennsylvania.  She attended Pennsylvania State University in State College for undergrad, Thomas Jefferson in Philadelphia for Medical school, and completed her residency and fellowship at Duke University in North Carolina.  We lived in Squirrel Hill for a number of years and enjoyed spending our spare time doing fun things all over the city, as well as boating and fishing up on Conneaut Lake and Lake Erie in Northwest Pennsylvania.  We now reside in the Treesdale Community in the North Hills with our son and enjoy visiting all of the parks and other local family friendly amenities. 

                So, are you thinking about moving into the city from the South Hills, or perhaps moving out of the city to the North Hills?  Give me a call and I can help list and sell your old house (and all of the wonderful things it has to offer!), as well as help you find and purchase your new home!  Maybe you are ready to retire, or finally saved up enough to indulge in that weekend getaway lake house up on Conneaut Lake?  Give me a call, and I will be happy to help you find the right place for all of your wants and needs on the lake!  Or, perhaps you are starting a new career in Pittsburgh at UPMC (PNC, U. S. Steel, Alcoa, etc.) and need someone who has made that transition from somewhere else, and understands the nuances of living and working in Pittsburgh and its surrounding suburbs, to help guide you to the right place to live.  Whatever your reason, I am here for you.

                So that’s my story, but what about my Broker, Howard Hanna?  Below you will find a few very impressive highlights of theirs, as well as some great advantages they offer when selling or buying a home:
