What Our Clients Are Saying

“I went through the process of interviewing 3 agents and picked the best! Patty was honest and forthright. She has a complete and thorough knowledge of the real estate business. I WOULDN’T USE ANYONE ELSE.”
— Andy Stojkovich (Orinda)

“I found Patty to be very competent, and that’s the first time I’ve experienced competency in the real estate field. Her attention to detail, to understanding our needs, to taking responsibility for every part of the transaction – she’s the best.”
— George & Anne Birdsong (Orinda, now Diablo)

“Looking back on our transaction Patty listened to our likes and dislikes, she did not try to sell us anything but looked for the perfect house, she was patient and returned our telephone calls. We would definitely recommend her to our friends as we now have a Realtor®, much the same as we have a physician, an attorney and a CPA.”
— George and Madeline Swartz (Lafayette)

“Patty handled the sale of our former residence in Clayton. We were very pleased with her level of professionalism and service, her creativity in advertising, and we appreciated how adeptly she kept us informed of all aspects of the transaction. Patty listed our Walnut Creek property and sold it in 5 days when nothing else had sold in our area in over 8 months. Patty is a top notch professional. You are honored or should be to have her on your staff. She is an extremely hard worker…I wonder when she sleeps!”
— Wayne and Marie Rezab (San Ramon)

“From the very first day we met, your personal warmth, sincere enthusiasm, and professional expertise, meant so much to us. This feeling of complete confidence in you continued until the day we closed the sale of our home of twenty eight years and purchase of our new home. Your presence and focus made positive things happen. You did it all!” As a side note we have since used Patty and Gene to sell our new home and have purchased through them our Rossmoor property.”
— Paul and Elsa Rechenbach (Danville, now Rossmoor)

“We have worked with numerous agents in the area selling various rental homes and no one compares to Gene and Patty when it comes to the time and effort spent into selling our home on King Drive in Walnut Creek. Their marketing plan was exceptional! Patty was recommended to us by a past client and when we interviewed Gene and Patty we told them we were interviewing 4 agents. After meeting them we cancelled the other appointments and called them the next day to list our home.”
— Jim and Dianne Janis (Walnut Creek)

“We interviewed 3 agents and concluded that Patty and Gene had the best communication and marketing skills and her results stood above the rest. The double team communication provided by Gene and Patty was very comforting, they always kept us well informed and were very responsive to all of our inquiries.”
— Michael and Patti Raymond (Lafayette)

“Patty quickly met our challenges. She not only returned ALL of our calls in a prompt and professional manner, but she had a communication network that could put any small business to shame. Patty not only offered us keen professional advice, but quickly spotted potential problems and cleared them up before they became issues. Patty represented us completely in every sense of the word, she was genuinely concerned about OUR needs and concerns unlike any agent we had ever worked with. Please feel free to use our names as references, as you can see our advice will be to look no further because the best agent for the job is sitting in front of you.”
— Chris & Karen O’Rourke (Lafayette)

“Patty exceeded all our expectations for service. She is a true professional. Patty always went the extra distance to insure things got done, she called us all the time and was very committed to us. She worked extremely hard in an extremely difficult situation. We would definitely use her again.”
— Dennis and Ann Merideth (Walnut Creek, now Lafayette)

“We couldn’t be happier with the handling of our house sale on Quail Ridge Road. You and Gene were superb! You showed a high degree of professional expertise and we particularly appreciated the attention you paid to all the detail including the inspections. You are the best and we would highly recommend you to anyone in the area.”
— Warren and Ellie Petersen (Lafayette)

“From the time we met Patty and Gene and saw their sales presentation (this is the first house we have sold in many years) to the close we really enjoyed working with them. Positive, professional, enthusiastic, trustworthy, and fun. I feel we have new friends.”
— Don and Rosalee Songey (Lafayette)
