About Jackie Cargnoni
I was introduced to the concept of hard work when I was just seven years old. My uncle, who owns a flea market, would have me work the concession stand alongside my grandmother & do clean up every weekend starting at 6AM – and I loved it. I stood on a milk crate proudly representing my family business and was paid just $5 a day, getting tipped occasionally, for going the extra mile which I always strive to do. By age 12, I made it to $25 a day. Years passed and I began managing a pizza shop at 16 while working another job at Subway. My uncle always told me that “hard work is a talent” – and I took that with me everywhere that I went.
Helping people has always been in my blood. About 2 years ago, I was on a flight with a woman and we began to chat. She informed me that her granddaughter had down syndrome. I was touched by her story and I offered a helping hand in holding a fundraiser to support the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh at the local restaurant that I worked at. The woman was ecstatic about it and in just four short months, we put together our first event. The feeling that I had after we did this was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before – with just one event we were able to bring the community together and raise awareness for something that affects so many. After 3 years and with a ton of success, we are looking to turn “Get up for downs” into an official non-profit organization.
The real estate industry has always held my interest and as life moved on, I’ve finally decided to dive into the industry to do what I love most – helping people. Being an agent is much more than just “being an agent”. It’s being a counselor, an advisor and a hand to hold – this is why I find passion in what I do.
When you’re looking for representation in what may be the biggest investment that you may make in your life – you need someone that cares. You need someone that is going to fight for you while also keeping your best interest. Anyone can list or show a home. A true real estate professional focuses on what their client wants and does everything in their power to help them achieve those.
Here are some short reasons as why to consider me as your agent:
· Not a stranger to hard work
· Caring and compassionate
· Backed by two teams of real estate professionals that have a combined 27 years of experience
· Availability, consistent communication & having the time for you
