We are thrilled to kick off this partnership as the Official REALTOR® of the Pittsburgh Penguins®.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 20, 2016
Northwood Realty Services, one of the region’s largest real estate services providers, has been named the Official REALTOR® of the Pittsburgh Penguins®. Northwood Realty’s partnership with the Penguins includes brand integration throughout PPG Paints Arena and the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, broadcast and online inclusion, and the launch of the “Hockey Mom of the Year” contest.
“We are thrilled to kick off this partnership as the Official REALTOR® of the Pittsburgh Penguins®,” said Tom Hosack, president and CEO of Northwood Realty Services. “The Pittsburgh Penguins® and youth hockey are vibrant elements of the culture in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio neighborhoods -- where 1,000+ of our agents live and work. We have always been proud supporters of the team, and now it is official.”
In addition to dasherboards, LED ribbons, and backlit signage around the Penguin’s home ice, Pittsburgh Penguins® fans will see Northwood’s presence in concession areas at PPG Paints Arena. Fans will also see and hear Northwood inclusions online and in radio broadcasts.
In the coming weeks, visitors to the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry will be able to search and find homes and real estate agents easily, via a convenient Northwood Realty interactive kiosk located in the lobby of the building. The kiosk will feature MLS listings, Northwood agents and its new Find Buyers program. Northwood’s Find Buyers program enables consumers to find property value estimates for their home or any property, track local real estate search activity, and measure potential demand for properties.
As part of their partnership, Northwood and the Pittsburgh Penguins® are excited to honor local youth hockey moms together with a “Hockey Mom of the Year” contest. Northwood first initiated an award for hockey moms independently last year. The company’s agents wanted to find a way to recognize their friends’ and neighbors’ dedication and support of youth hockey programs across the region.
“So many of our most successful agents are moms – and moms have always been special to us,” said Tom Hosack, president and CEO of Northwood Realty. “The combination of career flexibility and unlimited earning potential as an agent is a win for moms looking to enter the workforce. Just like our Northwood agent moms, who are smart, savvy multi-taskers with compassion, the moms of youth hockey illustrate our values, including passion, experience and integrity. These awards recognize and honor all that they do.”
Northwood’s partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins was a natural next step for continuing the Mom’s award on an even broader scale. "Anyone who's ever played or coached youth hockey knows that it's the moms who make everything happen," said Terry Kalna, Senior Vice President of Sales and Broadcasting for the Penguins. "We're excited to join our friends at Northwood Realty in celebrating the efforts and achievements of our local hockey moms."
