Client Testimonials

"The property we sold was the family home that needed updating, so what we needed was an experienced agent, an interior designer, a project manager and a therapist. Patrice was all that and then some as we successfully navigated the complicated process of selling our home. What could have been a nightmare was actually a pleasant experience. Thanks Patrice!"

Patrice sold our home at a time when a robust seller’s market had slowed over the months to become a choosy and seemingly casual buyer’s market. My wife and I interviewed three agents after we decided to sell our house. Choosing the right one would be critical. The other two agents certainly had experience, but Patrice had as much experience, if not more, and had distinctive interpersonal qualities that set her apart from the rest. She listened attentively to our concerns and genuinely acknowledged our particular issues. Patrice demonstrated a level of care and attention that we had not experienced with other agents, even from previous sales and purchases. She was always available and responded to all of our calls, texts and emails promptly. Her degree of experience is unsurpassed. As a longtime area resident, she has an intimate connection with the community and knew exactly how to price and present our home. Additionally, she has at her disposal the dedicated staff of a top-notch agency and a remarkable network of skilled tradespeople that performed every function to prepare and stage our house for the best possible outcome. She never pushed us in any direction, but explained to us in a direct and understandable way which options would be more beneficial to us. We recommend Patrice without reservation to anyone looking for the best agent.

Patrice was an incredible asset in both the selling of our previous house and in the purchase of our new home. In selling our house, Patrice knew exactly where to invest in our home to make it as appealing as possible to buyers on a very tight budget. Patrice sold our house in 7 days for well over the asking price in a neighborhood where houses had been sitting on the market for long periods. Patrice helped us purchase a home in an extremely competitive housing market against many other strong offers. She worked with us to prepare a personalized offer that the sellers were extremely happy with. We credit Patrice with helping us stand out in the competitive offer process, and for making it possible for us to purchase our dream home. We highly recommend Patrice. She was always prepared, and was always willing to go far out of her way to ensure we were thrilled with her work. Patrice made both the selling and purchasing processes easy to understand, exciting and fun. If and when we decide sell our current home, we wouldn't consider working with anyone else.

As both buyers and sellers of a home, Patrice exceeded all of our needs and expectations of the process.

She worked diligently to ensure that every small detail was taken care of and that we were more than satisfied with the entire process.Patrice is a true professional, and she will of course, get our highest recommendation to all of our friends and neighbors.”

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Patrice Horvath who represented me in multiple real estate transactions when, as Trustee of my mother’s estate, one of my obligations was to liquidate several properties.I was immediately impressed at our first meeting, as Patrice was well prepared with a presentation that speaks to her extensive experience in real estate sales, her thorough knowledge of the local area market, her marketing plan, and the steps she undertakes to ensure that the transaction is completed without any issues.In addition, Patrice has an extensive network of service providers to help quickly get the property in top shape prior to going on the market. Here again, Patrice’s depth of knowledge of the local area and real estate market conditions were instrumental for a rapid sale and in driving multiple offers.Patrice has a very easy way with people, is an absolute professional, and is a joy to work with. Despite the sudden loss of a loved one and the responsibilities I was then faced with, the process was made much easier with guidance from Patrice.I cannot speak highly enough of Patrice and would be most pleased to provide a personal reference as well.”

We would like to thank Patrice for helping us find the house we were looking for. Amid the craziness of the Bay Area housing market, it is easy to waste time looking at countless homes that are not suitable, and stress out about the process. Patrice was great at helping us with both. On the latter, we were in a particularly difficult situation as we were traveling internationally through the acquisition process, and Patrice took care of everything for us locally. We do not know how we could have done this without her help. She is professional, knows the process inside/out and is there to make the buyer's life simpler.I would absolutely recommend her to my best friend and family, and will use her in my next purchase.Once more, thank you Patrice for making acquiring our home a reality.

“Thank you for your objectivity and great counseling and support throughout our buying experience. We are lucky we got to know you and work with you. I specifically want to thank you for coaching us through the bidding and negotiation process which would have been a maze if it weren’t for you.When we moved to California, we tried to work with other real estate agents with whom our experience was less than optimal. Thank you for being candid and for your honesty (even when it meant that the transaction will not happen).Your guidance post the sale and counseling throughout our significant remodeling efforts and ensuring that our house remains very desirable to future buyers has been a valuable experience for us. You know how to keep a client forever but in our case you have gained true friends and loyal customers.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Patrice on three separate real estate transactions. She has represented me as both a buyer and a seller. In all of the transactions, her professionalism and commitment to customer service, coordination and communication in all phases of the process was exceptional. She made sure the process was smooth and seamless for us. She is a true professional and wonderful to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my friends and family.”

“… After winning the business your professional advice and counsel, pricing strategy, negotiating skill, calendar management, attention to detail and sense of urgency all combined to produce an excellent result in a short period of time in a tough real estate market.Your recommendations and timely access to home improvement resources added value and demand for the home. Your pricing strategy resulted in eight initial offers, all of which were above the asking price. Your negotiating skill enabled me to make multiple counter offers to the top bids, and an even higher final offer.The overall result was a premium price that was offered and accepted within six days of going on the market – excellent work”

“…Once we decided you were the right agent, we handed you the keys to my mother’s home and drove back to Oregon. Your organization and management skills kicked in, and utilizing your vast network of vendors, you managed to prepare the home in a remarkably short period of time. The end result was a welcome surprise to both of us.Because of the fast project management, you were able to get the home on the market within 30 days. But the most incredible part was the number of offers you were able to generate because of your pricing strategy, and the final sale was so much higher than either one of us could have imagined. The escrow was so smooth – no problems whatsoever! Thank you for making what could have been a nightmare of a process very easy for us. We would highly recommend you!”
