"Through multiple seven digit transactions over several years, Patti has been an incredible partner. And on the one occasion when I thought I could execute a transaction on a direct buy/sell transaction without her, I came to regret the decision. Work with Patti and don’t look back." -Teri and Tony L.

"We could not have asked for a more positive experience in finding our new home. Patti’s knowledge, patience and attention to detail were second to none in representing us. Her deep knowledge of the North Shore led us to our perfect home, one we could not have found without her. Patti made the home buying process what it should be; enjoyable and relaxed. We would highly recommend Patti for any real estate need!" - Sarah and Colin R

"Patti went above and beyond for us throughout the home buying and selling process. She worked tirelessly to sell our home in record time and was quick to act on the purchase of our new home. With Patti’s expertise, knowledge, commitment and guidance, our transactions were smooth and flawless at a time when the market was uncertain. Not only was Patti extremely professional and passionate about her work, but she was also very friendly and personable in our countless interactions. Patti is an outstanding realtor and I am honored to also call her my friend now!" - Susie and Rob B.

"Patti worked with us to downsize homes a few years ago. We wanted to stay in the same NORTHSHORE area...and it wasn’t easy to find something smaller, and as nice as we had. She was patient, professional and realistic in our search. The good news is – we found a great house that has worked wonderfully for us! She has helped other friends of ours too, and all have been pleased!" -Suzanne and Chuck O

"Patti Skirving was instrumental in moving us from the city to the suburbs and again when we moved to our recent home. Moving up from the city was a challenge as neither of us grew up in Chicago. She was extremely knowledgeable about the various suburbs and truly figured out what we needed and wanted. When we needed more room, Patti was patient and successful in selling our home in a difficult market and finding us a beautiful home with everything we needed. She was upbeat and a fabulous negotiator. She kept us calm and informed throughout the process even when things became challenging. I knew we were in excellent hands! She is really more of a realtor, she is a family friend. My kids still wave to her house as we drive by. I miss working with her but she is so successful at what she does I won’t need a realtor for a very long time. She found us the perfect home!" -Molly and Jerry H.

Luxury Buyers, Listings, and Developments
Patti and Greg are immersed in the luxury market, viewing homes in the million-dollar and up range every week as a team. They stay “in-the-know” on the trends and tastes of the market. At a time where many have struggled in real estate, Patti has adapted with the changes in the market with resilience and continues to get listings sold, which accounts for her solid position in the top 1 % of real estate brokers on the North Shore. In addition, the team offers to their sellers and developers customized and creative marketing plans, individually designed to highlight the home and maximize its exposure to the right buyers. Patti has had the honor of having her listings featured in some of the City and North Shore’s most prestigious publications including the Chicago Tribune. Ultimately the team’s business philosophy all comes down to one very important thing: work ethic. The Skirving Team does not give anything less than one hundred percent of themselves to every client. They want to achieve the goals that you have laid out and sell your home. With Patti and Greg you will know you have not one but two Realtors with experience, professionalism, skill, and extreme dedication.

Committment to Buyers
Patti is going to say something controversial, “I will not sell you a house unless you absolutely love it. It is not me selling a home because that’s my business and getting a quick check. It is me finding a home for my clients. A home that they are going to be able to be in for years; love, grow, make lifetime memories, that’s what’s important.” This philosophy is what gives Patti satisfaction in her job and keeps her clients coming back.

Patti's Community and Passions
Patti and her husband raised their three beautiful children in Kenilworth and Winnetka in the New Trier school system. Patti has enjoyed involvement as past president of Rush St. Luke's Women's Auxiliary, Chairman of Newborn Hope, Board Member of Women’s Winnetka Community House, Adhoc Member of the Village of Winnetka, and the Evanston Junior League. Patti loves all sports and is an avid golf player, and recently adopted a Leonberger (yes that’s a dog) from PAWS. Fun Fact: Patti was once asked to try out for the Olympic swimming team.
