Here’s a little about my background I’d like you to know… I knew I was destined for sales and service when I was very young. And indeed, right out of school, I spent over a decade successfully working in customer service and sales for companies such as Roadway, Cellular One and PageNet. Then in 1999, driven by my love of music and guitar, I created a design and marketing company called Boogie Street Guitars. For 15 years I had an amazing journey while growing and steering Boogie Street to worldwide success. The highlights were creating amazing relationships with my customers from all over the world as well as working with many international recording artists including Roger Waters, Scott Ian, Dan Donegan, Nick Catanese, Nuno Bettencourt and KISS legend Paul Stanley
As 2012 arrived, I began to revisit my near lifelong interest in real estate and I made the decision to become a Full-Time REALTOR with Howard Hanna Real Estate. I will always be proud to be a ‘Hanna trained’ Realtor. In January of 2017, in order to expand my Real Estate practice, I accepted a offer with RE/MAX Advanced, REALTORS with my office located in Sewickley, PA at 400 Broad Street. My affiliation with RE/MAX Advanced has been nothing short of phenomenal! The professionalism, support and kindess of RE/MAX Advanced, REALTORS is second to none and I’m very proud to be a RE/MAX Realtor.
On the personal side, I’m dedicated to my family. I love my time with my beautiful wife Natalie, my children Gwendolyn Leigh and Austin Major and my step-children Sierra, Saffron and Damian. Fitness certainly plays an important part in my life but my recreational passions remain the guitar, photography and baseball. In the Spring, Summer and Fall I enjoy coaching my son Major’s baseball teams as well taking in a Pittsburgh Pirates game with family and friends. And when I can, I sneak out to the Bay area to watch my favorite Oakland A’s take the field.
In July of 2016, I was approached by Mark Peterson, owner of Beaver County Radio, 1230 WBVP and 1460 WMBA. Mark proposed an idea of my own Call-In Radio Talk Show about Real Estate. ‘Your Personal Realtor w/Eric McKenna’ was born. We started our radio show on Saturdays from 11am to Noon. In November of 2016 we expanded to a 90 minute format and in May of 2017, we expanded to a 2 hour format. We are now heard every Saturday from 10am to Noon. The focus of the show is to provide 120 minutes of valuable listener content regarding many aspects of Real Estate. I take calls and emails ‘On-Air’ and we discuss listener questions and do our best to provide valuable insight. My goal is to help make Real Estate easy to understand and address any misconceptions that may be prevalent in the general public. Each week we broadcast the show on Facebook LIVE (search: realtorericmckenna) and the response and interaction has been tremendous! We also record each show with multiple cameras and every show is indexed and made available for viewing here on our website, CallEric.com, our Facebook pages and our youtube channel. The success of our show is quite humbling and has been so much fun. What a great vehicle to reach people, to help people and to express my views on topics such as Listing homes, Buyer homes, Inspections as well as sharing the positive ways to hire a great Realtor.
Overall, I’ll share that one of the very best things about being a Realtor is my enjoyment of meeting and working with new clients who end up becoming great friends. For me, it’s all about the relationships.
Don’t hesitate to give me a call or text at 412-613-4466. I’m ready and able to help with your real estate needs. Now and in the future.
