Burgan Real Estate, the official Brokerage of YSU Athletics, continues its expansion to Build a Better Burgan, this time moving across state lines.  Today, the 45-year-old brokerage, still independently owned by second generation brokers, Patrick Burgan and Sue Filipovich, announced they have acquired their Pennsylvania real estate license.  This feat enables Burgan Real Estate to offer their range of services and expertise now fully to clients in Western Pennsylvania and throughout the entire state.

 

"When we (Sue) took over Burgan Real Estate in 2017, we had a vision that what we did here was special and could be taken outside of the Mahoning Valley to make life better with our help," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and broker.  "Acquiring our Pennsylvania real estate license not only demonstrates the demand there is across the border coming from people who wish to work with our experienced and expert agents, but it also shows how doing business with integrity and transparency has a place in this world.  We are looking forward to seeing how life in Pennsylvania will be better with Burgan as we extend our footprint locally in Western Pennsylvania and across the entire state."

 

Burgan Real Estate, one of the only local brokerages selected to be a part of the distinguished Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, looks at Pennsylvania as the next logical step in the company's growth.  The company plans to invest the same into the markets in Pennsylvania as they have done in the Mahoning Valley, including a branch office, agents and community activation.

 

"While this is a great opportunity for Burgan to grow, it is also a great opportunity for Burgan Real Estate to do its part to help grow the communities we serve," said Sue Filipovich, co-owner and second-generation Broker with the agency.  "By obtaining this license, we fully intend to aggressively form a team of agents in Western Pennsylvania that not only have a home office they can go to and buy in to the values and principles that not only make us so unique, but creates the highest performing and successful real estate agents in the area."

Burgan Real Estate, the official Brokerage of YSU Athletics, continues its mission to Build a Better Burgan by adding its eighth agent in 2022, this time in that of Brian Decoy.  Brian will not only be focused on buying and selling residential properties for his clients, but will also be assisting with multi-unit procurement, as well as managing of properties through Burgan Property Management. 

 

"Real Estate is a great profession that offers opportunities to people from other careers who may not have even considered becoming a REALTOR®," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and Broker of Burgan Real Estate.  "Brian is the latest example of how service and sales industry professionals can find a better career and balance in their lives by joining Burgan Real Estate and we are excited to see Brian already having an immediate impact with his clients and our community."

 

Decoy, a native of Canfield, joins Burgan Real Estate after a successful career in the automotive world.  He earned his way up through the ranks to become General Manager of Bowser Hyundai Chevrolet.  He successfully not only managed the team and inventory, but dedicated his time towards finding a solution to help any client that walked through the door, leveraging trust, integrity and transparency to make his team and customers feel happy.  These traits are cornerstones of Burgan Real Estate and what attracted him to becoming Burgan's latest addition to the team. 

 

"The automotive industry is very challenging and demanding career.  The skills that I have developed by working my way to a General Manager has paved the way for a new opportunity with Burgan Real Estate as a residential REALTOR®," said the Canfield native.  "When I met with Patrick and Sue, I knew that success would not just be defined by the clients I help, but they made it clear it was in the balance I have with my family as well.  This was the perfect place for me to further challenge me professionally while giving me better opportunities to do what I love the most – being a husband and a father."

"The future of the real estate industry will be much different than the last 45 years Burgan Real Estate has been making life better for people in the Mahoning Valley," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and Broker of Burgan Real Estate.  "In order to adapt and adjust, we will continue our rich history of growing and building the top agents in the area and we are looking forward to helping Isaiah Padilla become one of them as a member of the Burgan Bunch."

"All my life, my family has been the most important and influential people that helped me become who I am today," said the Struthers native.  "Finding that same type of atmosphere in a company like Burgan Real Estate is amazing and I can't wait to be a part of the Burgan Bunch as their newest addition to the family."

"Over the past three years, Burgan Real Estate has grown from just being a residential icon in the Mahoning Valley, to establishing itself as the premier commercial property group with the addition of Burgan Friedkin Commercial Group.  By doing this, we saw that we could make the process of owning and managing commercial and residential properties better with over 45 years of real estate experience in the Mahoning Valley," said Patrick Burgan, second generation co-owner of Burgan Real Estate group.  "The addition of Burgan Property Management allows us to assist our clients with the same transparency, honestly and knowledge by taking care of the properties they own."

By being a trusted name in buying and selling their properties, we have discovered we can continue to deliver the same amount of expertise and trust to our clients by helping manage their investments, making their lives and the lives of those who reside in their properties, better."

As the Burgan Real Estate continues to build a better Burgan, they continue to do so by finding passionate individuals with a shared belief in the principles the company was founded upon 45 years ago.  Burgan is excited to announce yet another addition to their Burgan Bunch roster, this time by welcoming Nicholas Seifert to their team.

Seifert, a resident of Poland with his wife, daughter, and son, is moving to a new real estate brokerage.  Prior to earning his REALTORS® license and servicing clients in the Mahoning Valley, Seifert has worked in and continues to work in education, where he helps students become better.  His addition to the Burgan Bunch makes the fifth addition of a new member to the Burgan Bunch in the first five weeks of 2022.

"Building a better Burgan has become a mantra of our team in 2022.  From our agents to our clients, they are telling us about people who share similar character traits and morals that our company was founded upon 45 years ago," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and Broker of the 45 year old independent real estate agency.  "We have always admired how Nicholas embraced our way of doing business as a REALTOR® and, finally, we are happy to welcome him to a place that embraces his approach to doing business with integrity, honesty, and transparency."

When he is not selling or buying homes for clients, Seifert is unapologetically an avid Ohio State Buckeye football fan.  From news updates to blogs and vlogs, Seifert is a "nut" for the Buckeyes.  When he's not posing as one of the letters in O-H-I-O, you can find Nicholas out in nature, as he enjoys hunting and gardening.  The peacefulness of being outside and with nature is a solitude of peace that he looks forward to in his spare time.

"As a real estate agent, it is important to educate your clients on the entire process they are about to embark on with you as their guide," said Seifert.  "When I met with Patrick and Sue, they showed me how the responsibility that I value as a teacher is identical to the responsibilities Burgan agents proudly embrace as trusted advisors to making the lives of their clients better."

Since the New Year, Burgan Real Estate has added a new agent each week to its agent core.  The 45-year old, independently owned brokerage announced to today the addition of Dominic Giudici to their team of award winning agents.  

"As we continue to build a better Burgan, we continue to focus on the values that make us unique and the most trusted brokerage in the Mahoning Valley, but we also need stars ready to shine," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and Broker of the 45 year old independent real estate agency.  To welcome Dominic to our team, brings an expectation from his time on Broadway that he will continue to be in the headlines from his performance for his clients and our team here in the Mahoning Valley." 

A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Dominic is returning to the area after performing on Broadway in some of the industry's most notable and successful shows.  Among his accomplishments are roles in the shows "Wicked," and the iconic, "Hamilton."  While he does not shy away from the spotlight, the roles he is most proud of are those of husband, to his wife, and father to his two sons and dog.  Starting a career in real estate was one that he took time to consider but, once he discovered what Burgan Real Estate offered and had in store for the future, it was a stage he wanted to be on.

"As an actor, you have to be ready to play different roles, doing so with precision, integrity and honesty, so that the audience buys in to your performance," said the Giudici.  "Patrick and Sue shared those same three principles as the foundation of Burgan Real Estate and are providing me a stage where I don't need to act, I can just be me, and do so to make a difference in the lives of people who trust me to help them find a better home and life.  I am really looking forward to this new chapter in my life with Burgan."

I am truly anxious to grow in the real estate industry along with Burgan and their mission."
