November 16, 2020 (Canfield, OH) – If you’re into the art of thrift store shopping, you know that hunting for treasures and “finds” can be very exhausting. From location to location and item to item, each journey presents its own set of challenges and rewards, some of them leaving you empty handed. However, the rewards greatly outweigh the obstacles, as you patiently evaluate, search and, ultimately, find something that is better than you could have ever imagined. As we continue our search for new agents to add to the Burgan Bunch, we discovered a great “find” and are excited to welcome Melissa Birmingham as the latest Realtor® we have added to Burgan Real Estate.

She applied her education to numerous positions, including the medical, banking and retail industries. As she searched for the perfect “find,” each career path left her wanting more. With her husband by her side, Melissa continued to search for the right profession, and, after seeing the treasures Burgan Real Estate has to offer its own agents for their personal and professional lives, Melissa become a licensed Realtor® and joined the Burgan Bunch.

“Being a real estate agent is a challenging career as it requires a great deal of patience in both working with a client and in finding the right home they are looking for,” said Patrick Burgan, broker and co-owner of Burgan Real Estate. “Not every new agent has experience in being attentive and patient to the process, but Melissa has shown that she is not only going to be a welcomed addition to our team but an advocate for people who are looking for a better home to continue their journey in the Mahoning Valley.”
