Although only officially having her real estate license for a few years, as a second generation REALTOR® Katie Mahla says she has been in Real Estate for most of her life!  Growing up the daughter of a successful real estate agent, Katie was immersed into the real estate world from a very young age.  When it was time for a new chapter in Katie’s life, real estate was a very natural fit.

The oldest of five, Katie is a native of the South Hills of Pittsburgh.  After earning her Bachelor’s degree at West Virginia University she then attended Marymount University where she received a Masters of Elementary Education. Inspired by her elementary school principal, Katie pursued a career in teaching hoping to have a similar motivational effect on children that this principal had on her.

After living away for over 10 years in Northern Virginia, the call of Pittsburgh was too loud to ignore, and Katie ultimately decided to return to her roots to start a new chapter in the place she has always called “home”.

Even though her early career started in education, she never fully let go of her interest in all things “home” and decided it was time to explore her other interest—real estate. As her career in real estate blossomed, it quickly became apparent that there was a strong connection between real estate and her career in teaching. Her desire to educate people is put to work every day in her role of realtor.  Katie tries to take every opportunity to instruct her clients on the in’s and out’s of buying and selling real estate.

As a new agent, Katie has won the Second year “Cheer” award for Coldwell Banker, Pittsburgh for the highest gross income for a second year agent. Having recently started her own family and growing up in the area herself, Katie is uniquely in tune with other families and first-time home buyers.  With a keen grasp of the local markets and communities, Katie is able to direct clients to the areas of Pittsburgh that suit their needs and aspirations. Whether buying a first home, upgrading to a larger home to accommodate a growing family, or looking to downsize for the next chapter, clients will appreciate Katie’s strong work ethic, exceptional communication style, and attention to detail.

As part of the Monica Mahla Team, Katie is excited to partner with her mom, Monica Mahla. Serving the South Hills and all of Pittsburgh, together they bring a wide range of talents providing Experience With Results.

When working with her clients, Katie is focused on their goals keeping their best interest at the forefront at all times.  She epitomizes hard work, integrity, and high energy in doing what it takes to get the job done.  Katie’s approach is founded on building lasting relationships grounded on commitment and trust.

Katie loves spending time with friends and family exploring Pittsburgh from patronizing the countless fantastic restaurants to cheering on any one of the teams wearing Black and Gold.  A self-described foodie, she loves finding new restaurants, new recipes, new wines and sharing them friends.

Having taken piano lessons for years as a child, Katie has a strong appreciation for music and loves to attend any live music concert. She likes to travel and tries to get to Hilton Head regularly.

Along with her husband Teal, Katie feels very fortunate to find herself raising her daughter in a city she loves, surrounded by family and friends she adores while doing a job that allows her to fill her passion of helping other families on a daily basis.
