Real Estate Services

Are you planning to buy or sell a home? Are you a new employee relocating to Pittsburgh? As a Carnegie Mellon employee, you are eligible for financial rewards, discounts, and other real estate and relocation assistance.

Coldwell Banker Real Estate Services is pleased to offer you a Real Estate Assistance Program that could reward you with hundreds — possibly thousands — of dollars when you buy or sell a home. All employees of Carnegie Mellon University are eligible to receive this benefit.

The savings come from a credit or cash back equal to 20% of the commission earned on the listing or buying side of the transaction (whichever side of the transaction you are on).

To receive your cash rewards:

  • Register for the Real Estate Assistance Program by calling 877-304-2862 or online at
  • Either sell or purchase a home with the REALTOR® / Broker assigned to you.
  • Assistance Program cannot be combined with any other program, e.g., relocation benefits, or other Affinity or Assistance Programs, etc.

For information about how the program works, view the Real Estate Assistance Program Flyer [pdf].
