Next Step Realty is excited to announce the addition of four new agents to their brokerage: Matt Pivec, Scott Travers, Michael Celmer and Ceit Leslie with the Cokas Group! The brokerage is continuing to grow at a rapid pace and is proud to welcome new people to their family.
Next Step is excited to see how the following agents bring expertise to their brokerage!
Baltimore born and bred, Matt’s blend of blue collar work ethic and sophisticated taste make for an exceptional customer experience. Matt Pivec is always hustling on behalf of his clients no matter the situation. Since beginning his real estate career in 2003, Matt has led real estate teams large and small and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide his clients through all aspects of real estate markets and transactions. Matt’s philosophy of ‘Clients for Life’ is a testament to his commitment to his clients’ experience. Aside from residential real estate, Matthew also has several years of experience guiding his clients through investor transactions and property management. Matt graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. When not selling real estate Matt can be found spending time with his children and family, taking in a local sports game, “downey ocean”, or at his Crossfit gym. Next Step is excited to see where this attitude takes Matt!
Scott Travers embarks on his career as a real estate agent, and is no stranger to the real estate world. For the last six years, Scott has developed a thorough understanding of the real estate landscape in Maryland through his work as a property manager. During this time Scott’s primary focuses involved coordinating property maintenance, overseeing and upholding lease agreements, as well as helping to establish financial assistance for affordable housing communities dedicated to our aging population. Scott embodies a “how can I help” attitude in his daily life, and is eager to bring this passion for helping others to his career. Scott looks forward to helping those who trust in him to reach their goals, buyers and sellers alike.
Michael Celmer grew up on the beach in Toms River, New Jersey before moving to Maryland to attend college and play lacrosse at Mount St. Mary’s University. After completing his bachelor’s degree and M.B.A., he moved to Baltimore and quickly began to develop his knowledge in both residential and commercial real estate through Property Management. Michael brings a wealth of experience and fresh eyes to the table and is ready to assist his clients through every aspect of the largest transaction of their lives. What drew Michael to the City of Baltimore is the incredible juxtaposition of large city amenities with the feel of a small town, most aptly captured by the nickname “The City of Neighborhoods”. No matter what you are looking for, whether it be a Federal style row home in Canton, the perfect starter home in Lutherville, or the chic downtown loft, Michael believes there is no better city to buy or sell real estate.
Ceit Leslie, new to the Cokas Group, was born in Baltimore and acquired her real estate license in 2021. She has years of experience in the hospitality industry, and is passionate about serving her clients. Growing up, she would tag along with her father at open houses when he was a real estate agent, and has been fascinated with the industry since. She decided to pursue a career in real estate so that she can help clients have a memorable & enjoyable home buying & selling experience. Her positive energy and determination are a perfect fit when it comes to helping her clients find exactly what they are looking for. In her free time, she enjoys trying new restaurants, going to the beach, and spending quality time with friends and family. Ceit is looking forward to delivering a professional experience for clients when buying, selling, or renting.
Next Step Realty is ecstatic about the continued growth and how these new four agents will impact their brokerage!
