Canfield, OH (August 5, 2020) It is no secret that as a member of the Burgan Bunch, we like to have fun. From Mystery Bus Rides to Commissions and Cocktails, we work hard and we play hard. At some point, we've all been at a local watering hole in the Valley and thought, "I want to own a bar…that'd be fun," but we go back to our passion of finding better doors for people to open in the form of new homes we deliver. But for Haley Luckage, having worked in the craft beer industry for the past three years, she interacted with customers from all over the world and she thought, "I want to offer people more than just great craft beer recommendations. I really want to make a difference in the lives of people I know." So, instead of just saying what she wanted to do, she did it – and she is now the newest addition to the Burgan Real Estate team.
Luckage, a native of the Mahoning Valley, is a graduate of Austintown Fitch High School. Upon graduating from Fitch, she went on to earn her B.S. degree in General Business from the University of Pittsburgh. After several years of traveling the country, she returned to her roots here in the Valley and eventually rose to becoming the Vice President of Operations for Whistle and Keg, Ohio's premier self-service brewery and beer hall located in three cities in the state, including it's first location in downtown Youngstown. Her success and oversight into effectively running the operations of this establishment inspired her to seek an opportunity offering more flexibility, freedom and ownership in her already extensive and successful career. She found the perfect fit by putting her talents to use as a Realtor® and becoming the latest member of the Burgan Bunch.
"Aa a real estate agent, the operational processes and steps that go into selling or buying a home for our clients are not only vast but complicated," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and broker at Burgan Real Estate. "It is important to find people who know how to multi-task and can manage the unexpected with a positive attitude that keeps our clients calm, happy and confident. Haley is an individual who brings these characteristics and much more to our team. We are excited to see the impact she will have on our Valley and raise our glasses to her joining the Burgan Bunch."
While Haley has worked relentlessly on crafting her own skills in management, operations, communications and customer service – skills that will undoubtedly help her excel as a Realtor® – the support of her boyfriend, Dan, her friends and her family, especially her mother, Jane, has helped her immensely along the way and serves as a constant reminder that success is a team effort.
When she's away from her career, Haley likes a quieter approach to life. Whether it be gardening, reading books, or tasting the latest concoctions from local microbreweries, she finds time to unwind with the people she loves. A smile is constantly on her face and we are still trying to figure out if that is because of the three adorable pets she comes home to each day or if it is because she is still glowing over her favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, winning the Super Bowl last year. We actually think it is just because of her excitement to be with us!
"When you run a bar or brewery, it is important to remember that people are not just coming for the products you sell, they are coming for the experience – to try new things, connect with other people and become a part of a community. I saw how Burgan Real Estate does more than just buy and sell homes. They strive to make their client experiences better and to build genuine, lasting connections with members of our community," said Luckage. "As a Realtor® at Burgan Real Estate, I know I have found a place where I can not only leverage my skills to help others, but I can do so with a company that celebrates life, success and the satisfaction of their clients."
Haley, the entire Burgan Bunch raises our glasses to you. We welcome you to our family of real estate agents and look forward to seeing the impact you will have on our community, our company and the clients who will always be glad they called you to find their new home. And to make you feel at home, we say to you:
"Here's to you and here's to us, as we raise our glass of beer or punch. We welcome you to a better life, career and start as the newest member of the Burgan Bunch!" Welcome to the team, Haley!
