Angela Young Loves Real Estate
For Angela Young of Century 21 Covered Bridges Realty Inc., a career in the real estate industry was nearly inevitable. As a second generation Realtor, licensed as a full-time agent in 1987, she began her career assisting her mother, Kitty Eves, a well-known broker in the Bloomsburg area for three decades. Eves and Young worked together daily, providing professional and high quality personal service to their clients. They often partnered to offer creative solutions to their clients’ real estate needs. It was through this partnership that Young came to truly love helping buyers find their dream home and helping sellers get the most value from their homes.
In February 2016, Eves lost her battle with esophageal cancer. This was truly devastating to Young, but it was her love of real estate and passion for helping her clients that helped her find her focus and motivation to continue her trade. Her mother cared deeply about the clients and the families that she served, and Young continues that family tradition with pride.
Throughout her 30 years, Young was affiliated with several firms, and in 2005, she joined Century 21 Covered Bridges, where she now, more than ever, is dedicated to providing the highest level of professional service to her clients.
Young has helped hundreds of buyers and sellers reach their real estate goals and dreams. In the past year, she has achieved the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation, achieved by less than 4 percent of all Realtors nationwide; her PSA (Pricing Strategy Advisor) designation, making her an expert in properly pricing property; and is currently completing her e-PRO certification.
“By continuing my education, I can stay on top of the swiftly-changing real estate market and providing professional results for my clients,” expressed Young. Being a part of the Century 21 system gives her access to cutting-edge programs, technology and marketing materials to offer the most personalized and professional service to her clients. “It’s not just a house, it’s your home! I never lose sight of the fact that buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions that my clients will make in their lifetime. I consider it a privilege to guide my clients through their real estate transaction!” emphasized Young. She uses her experience and expertise to connect her clients with the area’s best contractors, vendors and service providers to ease their transition from home to home. Making a high stress situation more tolerable for her clients is her highest priority.
Last year, Young sold $4.7 million in volume and is one of the Top 100 Century 21 Agents in Eastern Pennsylvania. She has also received the Quality Service Award for several years, an award that is given based on client feedback to Century 21. She currently serves as Second Vice President of the Central Susquehanna Valley Board of Realtors, providing leadership at the local board level. “For the past two years, I have coordinated Realtor Ring Day, where local Realtors in a five-county radius man the kettles for the Salvation Army to provide financial assistance to needy families in the communities where we live and work,” stated Young.
Yound is also a wife and mother. She has been married to her best friend, Dennis, since June of 1999. Both she and Dennis grew up in Bloomsburg and chose to stay and raise their children there because of the affordable cost of living and the quality of life in Columbia County. They are raising two daughters; their oldest, Kate, is a senior at West Chester University, their youngest, Liz, is a junior at Central Columbia High School. According to Young, “We love the close-knit feeling of small community.” Young said her hobbies include working out at a local health and fitness center, spending time with family and friends and remodeling their 1930s farmhouse. She is quick to add that they purchased all of their materials from locally owned and operated businesses.
As Young says, “I love real estate!” and she is certainly looking forward to the opportunity to put that love to work for buyers and sellers in 2017.
