2018 DHRE Year In Review!

DHREA 31/12/2018

2018 was an exciting year for Deacon Hoover Real Estate Advisors. Alex Deacon and Ian Hoover started with a vision to change the industry. A company that doesn’t hire any agent, we hire motivated hungry agents who want to learn and enjoy being taught the business of selling real estate.


Co-Owner & Associate Broker Alex Deacon and
Broker of Record & Co-Owner Ian Hoover address the crowd at the 2018 Holiday Banquet, held at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino.

In 2018, our team of Advisors worked tirelessly to produce numbers we never would’ve expected in our first year. We’re proud of our fantastic team and their hard work, which was truly the cornerstone of our success this year. In fact, DHRE finished in the top 15% of Western Pennsylvania brokerages (44th out of 308), and produced more than 16 RE/MAX Franchises, 17 Howard Hanna offices, and over 20 Berkshire Hathaway offices!

Speaking of our wonderful team of Advisors, let’s take a look at this year’s award winners:

2018 Pinnacle Award Winner and Multi-Million Dollar Producer Tony Angotti.

Tony Angotti was on fire in 2018! Tony earned the Deacon Hoover Real Estate Advisors Pinnacle Award recognizing the brokerage’s top producer, was a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Producer Club (grossing over 4.5 Million Dollars), and was also featured in Top Agent Magazine!

Along with his professional accolades, Tony married his wonderful wife Anna in October, and finally got to witness his Philadelphia Eagles win a Super Bowl. All was well with Mr. Tony Angotti in 2018!

2018 Multi-Million Dollar Producer Chris Ciccarelli.

Chris Ciccarelli had an amazing 2018. Always on the grind, Chris produced over 2.6 Million dollars to cement his place in the Multi-Million Dollar Producer Club!

Million Dollar Producer Jeremy Taggart receives his 2018 DHRE Rookie of the Year award.

Jeremy Taggart is an Advisor to watch out for! Jeremy finished strong in 2018, producing over 1.7 Million Dollars for the year. His hard work and dedication earned him the 2018 Deacon Hoover Real Estate Rookie of the Year Award!

Million Dollar Producer Ashley Johnston receives her award.

Ashley Johnston had one of the busiest years we’ve ever seen, and was still able to produce over 1.5 Million Dollars in 2018! Along with joining the Million Dollar Producers Club, her and her husband Blaine welcomed a new child into the world! Congrats Ashley!

Megan Clancy receives her Million Dollar Producer award.

2018 was an exciting year for Megan Clancy! When she’s not serving our country, Megan is landing in the Million Dollar Producer Club with over 1.1 Million Dollars produced! Megan also married her wonderful husband Matt this past September. Congrats on all your success this year!

(Applause break for all of our 2018 Award Winners!)

2018 was a fantastic year for Deacon Hoover Real Estate Advisors, but none of it would have been possible without the hardest working team in the industry! From our top-notch team of Advisors, to all of our fantastic partners, to everyone behind the scenes and in the offices, and to everyone we were honored to do business with this year…our successes would not have been possible without all of you! Here’s to an even bigger 2019!

DHRE Advisor Spotlight: Ashley Johnston

DHREA 21/03/2018

Every Wednesday we’ll be spotlighting one of the fantastic advisors we have at Deacon Hoover. If you missed our debut installment last week, the spotlight was on Co-Owner and Broker of Record Ian Hoover. But let’s not let the fellas have all the fun. In honor of Women’s History Month, we’ll be focusing on the women of DHRE for the rest of the March. This week we’re highlighting Ashley Johnston!

Ashley graduated from Everest University in 2007, and has owned her own business since 2009. With a strong knowledge base in construction, Ashley has an advantage when helping her clients make the smart decisions on their dream home or investment property. So let’s get to know her a little better!

 

DHRE: Ashley, there’s a million professions and career paths in the world. What drew you towards real estate?

AJ: Real estate offers versatility in a work environment that I crave. There are endless opportunities in this career. You can work as little or as much as you like because essentially you work for yourself.

I feel as if real estate provides a path to financial freedom, a flexible schedule, and the personal fulfillment of helping people own their dream homes. Few careers can offer that much!

DHRE: What do you feel is the most rewarding aspect to real estate?

AJ: I gain so much satisfaction in knowing I helped people through a major time in their lives. From a new couple buying their first home together, to a bachelor/bachelorette buying a fabulous new pad, or helping a friend in embark on purchasing their very first investment property. I truly get to help people through each stage in their lives and just to see the smile or joy on their face after is priceless.

DHRE: Fill in the blank and explain your answer. If I didn’t go into real estate investing, I would probably be __________.

AJ: I’d have to say something in the medical field. I am a giver and I have a true passion for giving back. I find it very rewarding to make a difference in someone’s life. As well as the opportunity and growth is almost unlimited.

DHRE: Time to answer the question we always ask ourselves when convincing our friends and family Pittsburgh is the greatest city on the planet: Why Pittsburgh?

AJ: The “BURGH” Is a great city to live, work, and play! It’s rich in history and gives you that hometown feel. It’s affordable, the people are so friendly, has great healthcare, there is so much educational and cultural opportunities, and an unlimited number of recreational things to do with family and friends. Cant forget that we have the best sports teams! Pittsburgh is a physically beautiful place. There’s just so much to love about the city!

DHRE: Let’s see if you’re a true Pittsburgher. Do you prefer PGH or PIT?

AJ: PGH! 

DHRE: Everybody has a favorite quote they reference for motivation, inspiration, laughs, etc. What’s your favorite quote?

AJ: “Your best teacher is your last mistake.”

DHRE: Then I’ve had a lot of really good teachers in my life. In fact, teach me something. Ask yourself a question!

AJ: Are you waiting for your agent?

DHRE: Lesson learned. I mean…interesting question! Ashley, are you waiting for your agent?

AJ: I can’t tell you how many times I get asked this question daily. I love when I show up to a listing and sellers or other agents ask if “your agent is here with you”? After telling them I am the agent. I can tell that they feel as if they have insulted me, but truth is I take it as a compliment! I do look very young. I get the same look all the time when I say I have children as well people can’t believe it. I’ll embrace that now, because one day I won’t be so lucky.  😊 😉
