The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the top real estate team in the state of Maryland, and #2 in the United States, announces today their expansion into a new division, Corporate and Military Relations. Northrop team member Karla Pinato will be appointed to head this division as director of the Corporate and Military Sales Division. Formerly the Executive Director of The Creig Northrop Team, for the past 4 years, Pinato has been a Top Producing member of the sales team and has built strong relationships with many government agencies & corporations like WR Grace.
This expansion in service offering by the top-rated Northrop Team represents a growth in the Team’s services as well as their ability to meet and serve customers in new areas, as the Baltimore/Washington, DC region continues to grow and develop. In her new role, Pinato will be dedicated to helping families who are buying or selling homes in the Baltimore/Washington, DC region. She will also focus on meeting the needs of government agencies like Cyber Command and DISA, NSA, and military families moving to this region as a result of the BRAC movement. Military instillations, like Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Ground, are expecting thousands of new hires in the years to come.
As larger corporations continue to move headquarters or open new offices in the Baltimore/Washington, DC region, the workforce is continuing to increase, spurring needs for housing among these new hires and their families, as well as offering great opportunities for residential real estate. Pinato will be leading the Northrop Team in partnering with Human Resource Departments throughout Maryland to educate their employees on the best ways to buy and sell real estate, how to secure the best financing, and sharing her extensive knowledge of the market and current conditions. The most valuable benefit to corporations with this new division, is that Karla Pinato will be the single point of contact for Human Resource Executives who want to extend real estate services to their employees, whether they are interested in moving across the street, across town, or into other parts of the country.
“I am thrilled to be expanding my expertise into these new service areas,” Pinato says, “This is an exciting and dynamic time in our area and I am looking forward to helping both corporate hires and military families find their dream homes.”
Pinato holds the prestigious ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designations of advanced real estate education. Prior to joining The Creig Northrop Team, Pinato worked as a national account manager selling computer systems to Fortune 1,000 companies and holds a degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Originally from Ohio, Pinato has lived in New Jersey and currently resides in Dayton, MD.
