David Boland

For more than twenty-five years David has worked in the hospitality industry, coming together with some of the most renowned chefs in the country to provide unparalleled experiences for diners and special event guests in settings both intimate and grand. Customer-service-obsessed and eminently skilled at building relationships, David has met the incredibly high expectations of clients of the finest restaurants in San Francisco, Chicago and New York. In his role as a general manager, whether in a fine-dining restaurant or a high-end event venue, no detail escapes his attention. Maximizing every opportunity for both his employers and his clients has always been the hallmark of David’s career.

David recently joined Realty Network Group and he’s thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of a growing team and a thriving local business. Like his colleagues there, some of whom he’s known since childhood, David adheres to the highest standards of integrity and is deeply committed to building a collaborative culture. His deep roots in the area – including several of his seven siblings, who live and work locally – have resulted in his building a distinct network. His commitment to the growth and prosperity of Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) and its residents is stronger than ever.

While excited to be connecting buyers and sellers throughout our market, David is particularly drawn to the idea of helping people find homes (their first home, their forever home, their investment home, whatever that may be). In prioritizing getting to know his clients and understanding their values, dreams and vision for their lives, David is an ideal collaborator and guide for anyone looking to make a home in NEPA.

David has the ability to see the potential of a property beyond its surface traits, as evidenced by his personal investment in a turn-of-the-century Victorian home and his ongoing efforts, with his partner Patrick, to restore the home’s original character and grandeur, while making it both beautiful and livable. Recently featured on the Lackawanna Historical Society’s Historic Hill House Tour, this beautifully revitalized home is a great example of David’s eye for interior design, his respect for history, while still having a disposition for the future, and his interest in building community and investing in his beloved hometown.

David Boland is native to our region, having been born and raised in Clarks Summit, where his parents still reside, and now as a resident of Scranton’s historic Hill Section. He loves antiques and has a special talent for upcycling vintage furniture and other elements of home décor. A skilled cook and entertainer in his own right, David can frequently be found at the Co-Op Farmer’s Market in Scranton, at one of the area’s garden centers, sourcing great local ingredients, refining his home landscaping and updating the seasonal décor for his wrap-around porch.

Sonia Hegedty

Realty Network Group is expanding into Luzerne county and now further up into Susquehanna county. The Upstate New York-Pennsylvania border isn’t a stretch either with the recent addition of Sonia Hegedty. She’s an outgoing licensed professional who’s eager to serve clients who know what they want in the way of real estate investments in addition to those trying to find their way toward home ownership. She joins our firm with over a year of experience.

“I look forward to connecting buyers and sellers in Susquehanna, Wyoming, Lackawanna and Bradford counties,” exclaims Sonia. “It’s all about bringing value to my clients and helping them reach the places they want to go.” Realty Network Group’s newest addition is a forward-thinker. Her education, her drive to learn more, her networking ability and willingness to help her clients makes her an invaluable resource to them. She understands the power knowledge has in this business – the power to skillfully navigate through transactions with some pretty hefty price tags. She has her eyes set on becoming an Associate Broker over the next four or five years.

“Being part of events in my community is also important to me,” expresses Sonia. In fact, that’s one of the things that led her to a community-conscious company, like Realty Network Group. “This company is a great fit for me,” reveals Sonia. “It’s somewhere I feel comfortable and whose vision matches mine. Realty Network Group has a great network of agents. One of their strengths is the ability to be present and have an up-to-date way of interacting with consumers through technology, social media, while still maintaining that personal touch.” She enjoys working with homebuyers and sellers alike and uses a visual approach, helping them understand their needs. When working with buyers, she loves making suggestions that they may never have considered before: how a room’s layout can function for them or what modifications can transform the house into a home. These strategies inevitably favor sellers too. The visual components of placing a home on the market are some of the most critical when showcasing real estate to potential suitors.

Sonia was born and raised in Susquehanna county and is a graduate of Elk Lake High School. Her two children attend the same school district as she did. She loves Northeastern Pennsylvania, including the Endless Mountain region and all that it has to offer. She enjoys spending time with her family, golfing and reading.

If you’re in need of a positive, friendly REALTOR®, who understands the value of communicating with her clients in a timely manner, contact Sonia now at shegedty@realtynetwork.net or 570.767.1668 (cell).

Alicia Miles

Realty Network Group is pleased to announce that Alicia Miles, a REALTOR® serving the Greater Scranton area, has joined their firm. She recognizes this change will provide opportunities for her clients looking to buy or sell. There are challenges ahead in this market for those Alicia is guiding, for sure, but her optimistic-approach bodes well for anyone she’s representing. Her positive demeanor mixed with a hands on, easy going attitude sets the stage for success in addition to building relationships that will last in this business. “I love making dreams become reality,” underscores Alicia. “And this is a distinct possibility when I first encounter customers looking to take that next big step. Understandably so, it can be intimidating, but some are simply unaware of how close they really are. This is where I come in. As their agent, I’m able to guide them in finding the perfect home or selling theirs or both!”

Prior to real estate, Alicia, with experience in masonry and construction, built commercial swimming pools as well as worked as a full-time preload supervisor for UPS. In addition to presently being employed as an independent contractor for FedEx and being a mother of two boys, she enjoys representing homebuyers and sellers throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA). “Whether it’s being an independent contractor for FedEx or Realty Network Group, I want to continue to challenge myself,” maintains Alicia. “In both of my positions, it’s critical that I heighten my attention to detail and go above and beyond for my customers.”

Alicia believed she needed to join a company who would support her in these efforts and provide further training to be successful. That company? “Realty Network Group is a Brokerage where I get a pervading sense of trust from the Broker, Associate Brokers and many of the other agents I’ve interacted with there,” states Alicia. She thinks it’s easy to talk to agents at this company. She reiterated what some have stated in the past – “You feel like you belong. The support goes beyond what you’re provided with at most other Brokerages.” She’s excited to have made the switch. “We’re happy to have Alicia as part of our family and we look forward to many of the amazing things she’ll accomplish in the months and years to come as one of our professionals,” affirms Dianne Montana, Principal Broker of Realty Network Group.

One of the firm’s satellite offices, located in Old Forge, provides her with the perfect place to meet clients. Growing up in Sunbury, a location with a small town vibe, slightly similar to Old Forge, where she currently resides for over the past six years, has helped her appreciate NEPA and all that the area has to offer. She loves the Greater Scranton community. She also enjoys spending time with her family, being involved in the community, going to the gym, her “Jeep life,” camping, cheering on her boys, just to name a few.
