Indiana County’s Trusted Real Estate Team
Get to Know Oak Grove Realty LLC
In August 2013, Oak Grove Realty LLC opened its doors on Philadelphia St in Indiana, PA. Kari DeStefano and her now-retired former partner began the company after working for 15 years in property management. Together they built the company from the ground up, pouring themselves into Oak Grove Realty LLC every day. Our personal commitment to providing quality service became the foundation for our business. We have since moved to 39 South 6th St and have expanded to a larger team that travels throughout Indiana County and Western PA, providing rental, commercial, and residential real estate services. Meet the Oak Grove Realty LLC team below!

Tammi Lovejoy is the Associate Broker of Oak Grove Realty. Tammi works with all aspects of customer service: communications, tours, and scheduling; daily dispatch of contractors for tenant maintenance requests, and administration of property repairs and improvements. Tammi handles tenant accounts and rent collection, banking procedures, as well as oversight and coordination of nearly every other task and procedure our office requires. Tammi brings to our team a prior 20 years of experience in property management. When not working in property management, Tammi was also very dedicated to her son and stepson’s extracurricular activities while they were growing up. She traveled all over Western PA to her son’s track meets as well as volunteered to work the concession stand at all her stepson’s football games from elementary school up through high school. She and her husband attended all sporting events (track, football, baseball, and basketball) that their children participated in not only to show support for them but also for their teammates. In her spare time, Tammi now enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, since her own children are grown, as well as traveling with her husband. Their favorite states to visit are Kentucky, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.

“Oak Grove Realty is a wonderful company to sign with. The ladies in the office are incredibly kind and amazing! They are very helpful and professional. When we went to sign the lease, they went through every section of the lease and explained it in detail to ensure we understood everything. They answered every single question we had! They are an amazing company with an office full of amazing women! I would highly recommend if you are looking for an apartment, to go through Oak Grove Realty!”
