    Client Testimonials

    "“However, more than anything else we want you to know how much we appreciate your attitude and professionalism. You always had our best interest in mind throughout the entire working relationship. When most realtors would have encouraged a sale - any sale, you actually talked use out of a bad contact and quickly found us a better and more conducive contract that was form fit for our situation. Patti you really made a difference and we can testify to how important a dedicated, knowledgeable, and experienced realtor truly is.” -Buyer and Seller, Lafayette and Orinda

    "“After a fairly exhaustive search, we made offers on 2 houses, eventually purchasing our current home, but not after extended and sometimes acrimonious negotiations compounded by the fact that ½ of the sellers lived on the East coast and we were in Southern California. There were a number of instances that Patti kept the deal together and we are happy that she did…there are no agents with whom I have dealt that have exhibited more professionalism or tenacity as Patti. She always went out of her way to make herself available and promptly responded to all my inquiries, day or night. She represented us extremely well during negotiations and closing.” -Buyer, Lafayette

    ""We had heard that Patti Camras was an exceptional realtor and now we can attest that it is true! She began actively selling our home so that we had an offer even before the open houses. We so appreciated her professionalism and honesty about selling a home in Lamorinda. It can be a stressful time, but with Patti, we were confident and at ease during the entire process. Thank you, Patti Camras!" - Seller, Lamorinda

    ""Patti Camras is a true professional. Excellent communicator, organized, and responsive. More importantly, she had out trust. We loved working with her. We highly recommend her." - Seller, Orinda

    ""I cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from Patti. We were moving from the UK and consequently had limited opportunity to view properties. Patti soon worked out what we wanted better than we did! We completely trusted that she would find us a great house and she did not let us down. On top of her ability to work out what was important to us, she negotiated like a demon and guided us through the whole house buying process with great care from start to finish. We are so pleased we met Patti." - Buyer, Lafayette

    ""In a world of many real estate agents, Patti is phenomenal. She knows the Lamorinda area, and as a former teacher in the Orinda elementary schools, she knows people. Warm, caring, understanding, and at the top of her game, Patti is a great choice of realtor." - Buyer/Seller, Lamorinda
