Nate and Sarah: Owners
Nate and Sarah both were born and raised in Utah, just north of Salt Lake City. Nate graduated from the University of Utah as a double major (economics and marketing) and Sarah graduated from Weber State University as a Registered Nurse. In the fall of 2011, they moved their family from Utah to Pittsburgh. Shortly thereafter, the doors of Real Property Management Pittsburgh were officially opened.
They have six kids (four of whom they love) that keep them pretty busy. When they’re not trucking them all over Pittsburgh for school, playdates, athletic events, piano, etc. they can be found trying to find a quiet place in the house for a nap. They also enjoy road trips, smoked meats (their Traeger is their 7th child), sports, reading, and serving in their church congregation.
“Our goal is and always has been to provide an honest and quality service to our property owner clients and tenants alike. We realize that when owners trust us with their investment, it is a big deal! We strive to care for the people and properties in our care as if they were our own.”
Colin: Business Development Manager
Colin Pinto-Martin is our Business Development Manager. At a very young age, he worked with a contractor and quickly became about as handy as they come. However, his real passion is music. In 2014 he received his Master in Music from Carnegie Mellon University. In his free time, you can find Colin working with various prestigious organizations (including the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra) to provide a variety of unique concert experiences. Because he is handy, he also has hobbies in woodwork, home improvement projects, and building his own marimbas! (You can find him shredding it on one of his own marimbas here.)
Colin began working for RPM Pittsburgh in 2014 as a Property Manager. In 2017, he transitioned into the position of Maintenance Coordinator. In May of 2019, he began his full-time work as Business Development Manager. On top of expanding the business, Colin provides support to all other departments at RPM.
Colin is happily married with two kids and a fur baby that keep him pretty busy. His wife is a kickboxer. So, he has backup.
Beth: Project Manager
Beth Gates is our Project Manager and brings us a wealth of experience. After obtaining her degree in finance, she fulfilled her goal of becoming a stockbroker. After working as a stockbroker for a time, she realized it wasn’t for her. She went back to school and obtained a degree in computer science. She worked as a programmer/analyst in the banking and finance field, then later became a consultant. Beth had two small children at the time and decided to put aside her IT career to focus on being a mother. She has also worked as a life coach, and eventually got hooked on real estate! She flips homes and also has a few rental properties of her own.
Beth loves hiking, gardening, real estate, reading, decorating, and traveling, but her favorite thing in this whole world is playing with her two grandchildren.
Beth oversees our maintenance department and is the main point of contact for our property owners concerning maintenance.
If you’re looking to profess your appreciation for Beth through gifts, may we suggest chocolate, apple pie, or a skiing trip to Switzerland.
