About Bethany Burt

Bethany Burt’s passion for real estate developed early. Growing up in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania she adored the traditional Dutch Colonial house of her childhood. With its expansive porches, hardwood floors, high ceilings, deep window sills, and detailed moldings, she learned at a young age to recognize quality architecture and construction. Sundays were often spent touring open houses with her mother, an activity they still enjoy.

Bethany attended Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and received her B.A. with a major in Sociology and minor in Fine Arts. She was aiming to become a lawyer, however, a brief stint interning at her father’s law office deterred her from that path. She just couldn’t envision a future where the highlight of the day would be microwave popcorn.

She decided to go back to school at night to study interior design. Living independently, she got a job as a manager of a graphic design studio to pay the bills.
