Burgan Real Estate, the official Brokerage of YSU Athletics, continues to add to its growing list of agents with the addition of Benjamin Bates.

 

"We are always excited to add a new member to our Bunch, but it makes it even more special when that new member is also a veteran who served our country," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and Broker of Burgan Real Estate.  "Benjamin has all of the qualities we typically look for in our agents, and we're confident he'll help his clients find the perfect home for them."

 

Bates is originally from Cabot, Arkansas and graduated from Columbia College of Missouri with a degree in Business Administration. His dedication to serving his clients in real estate was likely rooted in his commitment to service to our country.  Bates served as a Senior Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy.  In his free time, he enjoys working with his hands on anything from carpentry to small engines as well as growing food in his garden. Benjamin is married with two daughters and a son.

 

"Having the opportunity to serve our community here in the Mahoning Valley with such a well-known, established brokerage in Burgan Real Estate is an ideal situation any agent would be grateful for having," said Bates. "It is so refreshing to see how their philosophy has withstood the test of time and how each agent is such an important part of what Burgan Real Estate is all about.  I am honored to be a part of this family and to make a difference by making the lives of those who want to find a new home in Youngstown better!"

Burgan Real Estate, the official Brokerage of YSU Athletics, continues to build its Pennsylvania team of residential real estate experts by adding Thomas Dioguardi.

 

"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.  "Thomas 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 in Pennsylvania."

 

Dioguardi, a native of Beaver Falls, graduated from Bowling Green State University with a degree in education.  However, his career took him into sales and service, where he was a successful automotive sales manager.  While his successes were well earned, there was something more he hoped to have in his life, especially as it relates to finding time for his fiancé, as well as his son and daughter.  It was then that he discovered the opportunity to find a better career and balance in life was with the newest Pennsylvania real estate agency in Burgan Real Estate.

 

"There are many similarities between the automotive industry and real estate. The skills I have developed by working my way to be a sales manager has paved the way for a new opportunity to grow the Burgan Real Estate team in Pennsylvania.  This was the perfect place for me to further challenge myself professionally, while giving me better opportunities to spend time with my children and my fiancé," said Dioguardi.

Burgan Real Estate, the official Brokerage of YSU Athletics, is not wasting any time in adding new agents to their Pennsylvania brokerage, announcing the addition of Brett Green to their growing team.  

"As Burgan Real Estate begins to expand into Pennsylvania, it is imperative that we find agents who are not only accomplished Realtors® but they have sold morals and values that mirrors how we have been successful for the last 45 years," said Patrick Burgan, co-owner and Broker of Burgan Real Estate.  "Brett Green satisfies all of those elements and we are eager to begin building the team alongside him in Pennsylvania."

Green, a native of Midland, Pennsylvania, has not always been in real estate.  After earning his degree in Psychology, as well as masters in both counseling and educational administration, he pursued a career as a healthcare executive.  However, he found a career in real estate that has been rewarding to him, both professionally but also personally, allowing him to spend time with his wife and their daughter and son.  Still, Brett finds time to give back, serving as a Board Member for Buckeye Online School for Success and a Director of Beaver County Association of Realtors®.  

"I am very excited to be a part of the foundation Burgan will build upon here in Pennsylvania", Green said. "I look forward to being able to work with past, current, and future clients and friends in assisting them in all of their real estate ventures in Pennsylvania under the Burgan Real Estate name."

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."

Burgan Real Estate, the official Brokerage of YSU Athletics, continues its mission to Build a Better Burgan by adding its seventh agent this quarter, this time with one of the youngest REALTORS® in the area, Isaiah Padilla. 

"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."

Padilla, a 21-year-old native of Struthers, earned his associate degree in technical studies from Youngstown State University, where he was a proud member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) and took every opportunity to volunteer through the University and on his own.  His pride in the area and love of YSU is only second to his love of his family, something he and his 5 brothers take great pride in, and what attracted him to Burgan Real Estate. 

"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."

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."

"Our company always gets excited when someone decides to start their career in real estate with us," said Patrick Burgan, second-generation co-owner and Broker of Burgan Real Estate.  "The addition of Anthony Marchionda continues to demonstrate how our culture of committing to the growth and success of agents, at any point through their career, makes life better for them and our clients.  We are very excited to add Anthony to the Burgan Bunch."

"Before I officially received my real estate license, I met Sue (Filipovich) and Patrick (Burgan) personally. The way they presented themselves and talked about the culture at Burgan Real Estate, I knew it was the right fit for me," said Marchionda.  "Burgan Real Estate is growing fast and is filled with great people who are team oriented. I am truly anxious to grow in the real estate industry along with Burgan and their mission."
