“Though now a close friend, when I first met Pattie our relationship was expert and client, a state of affairs that rapidly changed to mentor and acolyte as she guided my wife and I through the turmoil of buying and selling property. Her sound and clear-headed advice kept us sane throughout the entire process, and no matter what roadblocks appeared, Pattie was always able to come up with rapid solutions, and always with a sunny and optimistic point of view. These days I don't even think about anything to do with property without first consulting Pattie. Many real estate agents know their market and have years of experience, but few combine that with the ability to genuinely know and understand their clients, often (as was the case with us) better than they think they know themselves. The evidence is clear every time I dine at Pattie's house - rooms full of clients that are now friends, friends that will again be clients, and all of us very happy with our homes.”

“My wife and I are happy to enthusiastically recommend Pattie Lawton as a real estate agent. It would be hard to overemphasize her skills and her doggedness. Pattie was smart, energetic and dedicated to getting us the price we wanted on three separate multimillion dollar property sales. She is exceedingly sharp about the property markets and we found that her relationships with just about every other broker/agent in San Francisco helped us in getting the right kind of buyers in to see our properties. Pattie is a seasoned negotiator and she was scrupulously honest and transparent in our dealings with her. She remains our agent and we continue to call on her expertise for insight into the shifting marketplace. We highly recommend her---Pattie is a winner.”
