About WGAR



Charter: June 22, 1925

The purpose of the Washington-Greene Association of REALTORS® is to serve its members by providing and promoting programs and services to enhance members’ freedom and ability to conduct their individual business ethically and successfully, with integrity and competency, and through collective action to promote the extension and preservation of the private rights to real property.


The Washington-Greene Association of REALTORS® (WGAR) has proudly served the real estate professionals of Washington and Greene counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania and the public since 1925. WGAR is The Voice of Real Estate in our counties, and on behalf of our more than 350 members and affiliates, we welcome you to our spectacular website!

What a truly unique community we represent. Washington County was born amidst the throes of the American Revolution, established in 1781 and named for the honorable “father of our country” George Washington. Greene County ceded from Washington County in 1796. We are rich in history, education, recreation and opportunity. Within our boundaries you will find Meadowcroft, the oldest archeological site in the North American continent, as evidence of the timeless attraction to our beautiful land.

Today we are pleased with our strong economic growth. Southpointe business and residential park, Tanger Outlet Mall, the Casino and Racetrack expansion, Trinity Pointe shopping area, countless new restaurants and hotels continue to pop up. The discovery of the rich Marcella Shale and natural gas exploration along with our coal reserves yet untapped have allowed Washington and Greene counties to continue to prosper.

If you want to find a home for your family, or you want to find a new location for your business, there is a REALTOR® who can help you by providing a number of professional services. The REALTOR® you select will help you determine a value of real estate, evaluate the variety of real estate loans available in today’s market, and in the case of commercial or industrial properties, analyze investment opportunities.

Please use our Membership link to find a REALTOR® to guide you through the process. We stand ready and able to serve you.

I am a full time real estate professional committed to satisfying my clients and exceeding their expectations. Customer satisfaction is my top priority. Having over 20 years’ experience in marketing and real estate industry made my decision to become a licensed real estate agent easy. Specializing in residential and commercial properties in the Pittsburgh market has contributed to my success as a multimillion dollar producer. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from West Virginia University (Go Mountaineers!) and am originally from Weirton, West Virginia. I currently call Pittsburgh home and reside in McMurray.


Becky has been a full-time Realtor for the last 19 years, serving Washington, Greene and Allegheny counties with pride.  Prior to her real estate career she has worked in Washington,DC  as the sales and marketing manger for an Asian tour company with which she travelled the world extensively.  She has earned her Bachelors of Social Work from East Tennessee State University and worked as a social worker directly after college graduation.  Becky currently resides in Washington with her son Jake.


Having been a licensed real estate sales associate since 2004 and a member of the Jim Dolanch Team since 2005, Jeff knows what buyers want. He’s a dedicated professional who really listens to the needs of our clients. Jeff’s 12 years of golf course management experience means he knows how to handle all the details of the buying process to ensure complete client satisfaction. Whether buying residential, new construction, vacant property or commercial, Jeff is the expert. Let him help you make the best buying decision possible with your most important investment.

Jeff also understands the significant details and steps required to reach a successful closing. His goal is to provide superior customer service to our clients and enable a worry-free closing.


Dr. Mike Hanlon has been serving the South Hills, Washington and Greene for over 10+ years starting with his chiropractic practice and women’s health   centers.  For the past 3.5 years he has held his real estate license and decided to jump into the profession full time in February of 2016.  Dr. Mike is very active in his market center, Keller Williams Real Estate Professionals, and is honored and excited to join the Board of WGAR and help advance and promote our wonderful profession.
