Our Story

Our story started right here in Pittsburgh. CityLife Residential was founded in the ‘Burgh in 2019 by CEO Casey Ryan Quinn and Chief Real Estate Officer Brian Kirchner. Both natives of the Pittsburgh area, Casey and Brian wanted their business to be more than a real estate investment company. They wanted it to have an important mission, one of giving back to the community they love, the place they were both born and raised.
