Ruth Weigers and the team at Schocker Weigers REALTORs at Berkshire Hathaway in the South Hills are extraordinarily competent. We just purchased a new home in Mt Lebanon listed by Ruth. From the first viewing until the closing a few weeks later, Ruth was prompt, responsive, helpful, honest and ethical. There is no shortage of real estate companies or agents in this area. After dealing with several, my husband and I have found Ruth to be head and shoulders above the rest. We have listed our old house with Ruth, and the great service continues.
From start to finish, we had a wonderful first-time home buying experience working with Krista Pratley. She was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process - and ALWAYS available to answer any questions we had. We also did not feel any pressure to purchase a home - she was very honest about the houses we saw and stuck with us until we found the one that was right for us. We would highly recommend working with this company - especially with Krista!
I had a wonderful experience working with Michelle Schocker and Kelly Rackley at Schocker Weigers of Berkshire Hathaway while searching for and purchasing my home. Both Michelle and Kelly are so willingly to go above and beyond for you. They are both highly knowledgeable and a great resource. Both ladies are are readily available via e-mail, text, or phone, and they make the client's needs their number one priority. They communicate with the client as well as each other so everyone is always on the same page and knows the next step. Michelle is great in pointing out every detail when showing a home so you know what you are in store for. She is very honest and has a wonderful rapport and builds trust with her clients. Kelly is very organized and develops a timeline in order to ensure clients make all the necessary arrangements by the set deadline. She also follows up with reminders and is available to take any questions or offer help. She even helped me with questions I had after the closing had been completed. They are an awesome team and I highly recommend their services to anyone.
Michelle Schocker and Schocker Weigers of Berkshire Hathaway team did an outstanding job helping our family to sell and purchase another home. Ruth Weigers and Kelly Rackley also spent a lot of time following up and filling in on the many details regarding both selling and buying a home. Michelle is extremely knowledgeable, honest and hardworking. Without a doubt, we would definitely recommend her to any friends, family or co-workers.
As a first time homebuyer I had a million questions, but with Krista Pratley as my realtor I often had answers before I even knew I had a question! She was knowledgeable, available, and FUN! The process is certainly stressful at times, but with Krista and the entire Shocker Weigers team, I felt confident that they always had my back. Krista always kept me in the loop and negotiated a deal that I was more than happy with for my first home. She was always in contact with not only the seller and their agent, but the mortgage broker, closing agent, and insurance agent to keep everything on track and headed to a smooth close! There is a reason this team is a household name in the Pittsburgh area, professional, experienced, and just damn good at what they do!!
Upon moving to the Pittsburgh area, we were recommended Ruth Weigers as a realtor, and we couldn't have lucked out more. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, the homes, and the process of buying a home in Pittsburgh. She was on top of everything from day one before we even knew it needed done! She also was sure to keep us informed about everything that was going on or that would be coming up, and we were always able to get ahold of her for questions or requests, regardless of the time. She really made the process as stress free as possible. We couldn't be more thrilled with our choice to use Ruth as our realtor, and we'll definitely be using her for all our future realty needs.
Ruth and her team were fantastic. Ruth was well prepared for our first meeting, assisted at choosing the right price to sell. Their network of advertising was outstanding! We sold our house in 2 weeks at a price higher than expected! Kudos to Ruth, Kelly and the rest of the team!! Would highly recommend them for all your home needs!
Michelle and her team are absolutely fantastic! She listed, sold, and closed our house in Pittsburgh in under 30 days total. Very very highly recommended.
When I bought my house 4.5 years ago, Michelle and Ruth helped me to find the house, and to also sell my previous house. So, when the time came for me to sell again, there was no question in my mind - I was going to go with Michelle and Ruth! They and their team are extraordinarily responsive! And in this case, we listed our house on 1/12/15 and closed on 2/27/15! Talk about a quick turnaround! They're the best!
Exceptional experience throughout the entire sales process. The team is extremely professional, knowledgeable and responsive. We were very pleased with the outcome and appreciated the team's enthusiasm and commitment!
I was provided all of the information, guidance and support to feel comfortable in my decision to purchase my home. As a first time buyer at 60, I didn't think I was a candidate for home ownership. The team of Ruth Weigers Michelle Schocker and Krista Pratley, worked together supporting each other and me in this life changing decision. I didn't expect the feeling of success that I have experienced as a home buyer. I would recommend this team. Always positive, patient and accommodating, I will be recommending them to my friend who will be selling her home in the near future.
Ruth was right on the number for the pricing, and thus was able to present us with multiple offers within a week! She goes above and beyond expectations, which was especially helpful for me. I am uncomfortable with showings, and she stepped in and made sure everything was easy. Ruth was actually the agent who sold us the home in the first place, as well as having sold our previous home in the South Hills. I would highly recommend both of them, they are a great team!!
My Schocker/Weigers agent, Karen Coyle, created a presentation that was a perfect match for the property that my wife and I had worked so hard to prepare for the market. We feel that her outstanding enthusiasm and energy were an accurate representation of the dedication of the entire Schocker/Weigers team. We highly recommend Schocker/Weigers for the valuable services they provide.
I had an excellent experience working with Karen of Schocker-Weigers on purchasing my new condominium in Shadyside. Karen was extremely helpful, understanding and accommodating. I would recommend her for anyone interested in buying a home in the Pittsburgh area.
Great agents. Very knowledgeable. Always steered us in the right direction.
The Schocker Weigers team is the best! I've bought and sold 14 properties in many cities and have plenty of experience with different realtors. Without hesitation, hands down the best realtors I've done business with. If I ever make it back to Pittsburgh, the added bonus will be my first call to Michelle and Ruth. What a team! No need for all the details, just let them do their thing, take care of your needs and be ecstatic with the purchase or sale of your home.
My fiancé and I worked with Ruth and Michelle in purchasing our first home. They were professional and pleasant throughout the entire process. I specifically appreciated their willingness to show us any many houses as we wanted to see while offering up their professional opinions on certain costs associated with owning the types of homes we were viewing. All together it was an excellent experience and I would/will recommend them to home buyers/sellers in the future.
If there were more than 5 stars available these wonderful ladies would definitely deserve a 10! The best in the business. Sincere, honest, reliable, professional and determined are just a few ways to describe their work model and ethic. If you want to find real estate or sell some - they are the ones to work with!
My wife and I worked with Michelle Schocker last fall to buy our first house. Michelle has extensive knowledge and experience in the Pittsburgh real estate market. She was very patient and worked closely with us throughout every step in the process (submitting the offer, renegotiating the contract, etc.) I would personally recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Her office is located in the South Hills.
I am not usually one to write reviews but I have to say that my husband and I would highly recommend Ruth Weigers and her team! Ruth helped us buy our first home in a new city and we could not be happier with our experience. From the very first time we contacted her to the day we picked up our keys, we felt confident, comfortable, and happy to be working with her. Ruth was always professional and prompt to respond and she answered our endless questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. Ruth was accommodating to our schedules, flexible and patient. What stands out most about Ruth is that she genuinely cares about her clients and it shows! We were thrilled to have Ruth Weigers by our side through the home-buying process as our agent, and would definitely recommend her to anyone relocating to Pittsburgh as well to those who are familiar with the area. We love love love our house and our neighborhood.
Michelle is a professional. Easy to work with and always pleasant. Highly intelligent with excellent negotiation skills. She was attentive to our needs and wants. She always had a team to of experienced realtors for the rare occasion, when she was not available. She made the process of buying a home go smoothly.
Michelle Schocker was very professional, energetic, and knowledgeable. She was exceptional in all aspects of the transaction especially in providing professional guidance throughout the sale of our home and answering all of our questions as they arose. She was responsive day and night and on weekends. She provided a thorough home selling proposal package including details of comparable home sales in our area, estimated settlement sheet information detailing anticipated closing costs, and a close estimate of the bottom line proceeds of the sale of the home. Since we were an out of town seller during the listing and sale of our home, Michelle handled all the details necessary to make the home presentable and attractive to potential buyers. She was very technically qualified providing for online computer signing of documents etc. She arranged for final cleaning of the home after it was emptied, removal of old TV's, arranging for a contractor to handle final buyer corrective action requirements etc. The final indicator of her effectiveness is that the house was listed and we had 3 written offers in the first 3 days. Can't say enough about her and would highly recommend her to anyone.
I've known Michele for many years. She’s one of the hardest working people I know. She has sold me two houses now and sold my townhouse for me as well. I would use her again in a heartbeat and I already have recommended her to friends. I don’t really know Ruth. But if she’s Michelle’s partner I’m sure you can’t go wrong!!
Schocker / Weigers is the total package. Their team is comprehensive and supportive. They do their research and can supply you with the tools you need to sell your home quickly and for a price you can accept. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Michelle and the whole team, they helped our house sell in 1 day!!!
This was unique as in the day it was listed, the property was shown and an offer made! Somewhat unheard of but so appreciated. Michelle's initial presentation of our property was what proved that her "home" work was right on the mark. Her approach was that of a professional but she was friendly and down to earth. Calmed our anxiousness, soothed and cheered us on while getting the home ready for listing. The team work was an added bonus that made my family feel we received "special" VIP attention. The buyers were happy and we ALL had a great day at the closing! So would I recommend Michelle/Ruth and team....WITHOUT A DOUBT!!!!
We chose Michelle and Ruth to list our house for sale after interviewing several other agents. While we didn't get the opportunity to meet Michelle, Ruth came to the table with a extensive home report with detailed information about their team and how they function. Only one other agent we interviewed brought a home report and in the end we were most impressed with Ruth's very enthusiastic and bright personality combined with the team aspect. We chose to stage the home ourselves, to which Ruth was very supportive. The process of listing was very pain free. A lot of the signing was done electronically which worked well with our busy schedules. They had a professional photographer for the home as well as a virtual tour. The listing looked GREAT! They also use a system that lets you know when there’s a viewing and if provided, feedback from the viewer. We received an offer within a week, we're not sure if it’s just great mojo or luck, but we couldn't have done it without Ruth. After receiving an offer there’s still a lot of muck to crawl through to get to the closing, Ruth and her associate Kelly really helped us through this and made it so easy. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.
Michelle, Ruth and Kelly really did an outstanding job shepherding my wife and me through the process of selling our house in Bethel Park. Their work breakdown structure for the closing period was enormously helpful as it identified the milestones along the critical path for the project. The bottom line was this: Our house was listed on a Saturday and by the following Saturday, before midnight, we had a buyer. Thanks to all involved with the sale of our house, and especially to St. Joseph.
Krista, Michelle and Ruth did an outstanding job helping my family and I sell our family home in Baldwin. We wanted to sell the house “as is”. We had done the basic upgrades/repairs needed to obtain an occupancy permit, but did not want to invest a lot of time and money making major repairs. This did not stop them from giving us their top of the line service. They prepared a very thorough market analysis and carefully reviewed everything with us, helping us determine an accurate listing price. As soon as we signed the listing agreement, they were there with photos, online coverage, etc. They kept us advised of all showings and provided viewer feedback. Within a few days we had offers from 3 different buyers. After signing a Sales Agreement we had a problem with the sewer line, but the team was right there; they helped find us the plumber we needed, got estimates for everything, and while we were on vacation, Krista was there to oversee the work being done and kept us advised every step of the way. We closed on the sale of the property in seven short weeks and were amazed at how smoothly everything went. Thank you for a job well done.
Contrary to media reports, home values in Pittsburgh are steady - far above the national average. In fact, locally our average sales price has increased over last year. If your are thinking of selling your home there is really no better time and no better place than Western Pennsylvania.
We would be happy to show you what your home is worth in today's market.
