Physical fitness and real estate don’t often go hand-in-hand. But when Gretchen left her gig as a personal trainer in Los Angeles to tackle Pittsburgh’s housing market, she held on to the same underlying intention: to give others a chance for a fresh start. High-spirited and strong-willed, the North Hills resident brings to Lifespace a slew of real estate accolades and an affinity for contemporary nests. Gretchen’s inherent aptitude for artistry of all realms is evident in her own abstract paintings, as well as the handiwork she’s extended to her personal living quarters. In spare time, she’s an ardent museum-goer, gallery-crawler, and — accordingly — a fair judge of fine spaces. Form an orderly line, homebuyers.
