"Pat was absolutely the most resourceful agent I could have possibly envisioned, especially considering the unforeseen bumps on the road we came along that she was fully prepared to wrestle into alignment. Simply the best!"
-Bradford B.May 5, 2012
"If it were practical, Pat would be my real estate agent for life. However, I now live in Georgia and regrettably am not likely to ever see her again.
I typically do not respond to program or people evaluations. It is because I do not believe them to generally be an effective method for determining or judging satisfactory performance. Most of us are average, but we wish to be judged exceptional simply for doing what we are paid to do, i.e., our jobs. In my judgement, one must perform above and beyond standard job performance expectations in order to exceed expectations or to be judged exceptional.
I have purchased and sold 10 homes in my lifetime. Pat's performance measurably exceeded that of any prior agent. On several occasions I would ask Pat about something I thought might be helpful and she would respond that it was already done. When problems arose, Pat did not just inform me of the problem, she also presented a meaningful solution for resolving the problem that adequately and fairly satisfied not just me the seller, but also the buyers.
Baird & Warner is fortunate Pat is their employee and not a competitors for she is without question consummate professional. As I said to her when the transaction was finally completed, words cannot adequately express my appreciation for her efforts in selling my home. She accomplished in 5 months what my prior agent could not accomplish in 18 months. i admire her greatly. She has earned my highest esteem and praise."

"Pat was absolutely the very best Realtor we have ever used. If there was a score higher than "5" Pat would have received it. Her knowledge of Oak Park made the difference plus her helping us find the house that met our expectations was challenging but she never lost focus. She definitely had our best interest in mind. We will miss our daily interactions with Pat!"
-Rob P. & Joe B., Oak Park
"Pat is the best, I have used her to buy and sell 4 of my personal properties along with my sister's 2. She is well known in the community. I always refer Pat to friends and family. She always has made me feel like I am her only client. She is the greatest"
-Francesca P., Oak Park
"We have worked with Patricia McGowan several times the last few years. She always provided top-notch service."
-Laura FMarch 3, 2013
"I have worked with Pat on the sale of two homes and the purchase of two homes. Always the best service and a very good friend."
-Francesca P.July 7, 2011
I love working with Pat. She is one of the most knowledgeable people I know. I appreciate her professionalism and her dedication to making sure my goals are met.
It is my pleasure to recommend Patricia McGowan for all of your real estate needs. Patricia was patient, intelligent and extremely knowledgable about the housing market in Oak Park. She had a very keen attention for detail and communicated every update through out the process of selling our home. This was a stressful time in our lives but with Patricia's guidance, we were able to sell our home above asking price in just two days! We attribute much of this success to the time she put into every detail of our listing and her reputation as the premier agent in the Oak Park area. We have since relocated out of state but if we were to ever return to the Chicago area, we would 100% contact Patricia to work with her again. Just an overall true professional!

"Pat is simply the best agent I have ever worked with. She is professionalism incarnate, yet personable as well. If I am ever buying a house in this area, I would use Pat. But we have moved to Germany, so this is not likely in the near future."
-DavidMay 1, 2013

"Very knowledgeable with the local area, very good in the process management of the transaction. Even while on the road, Patricia always managed to return my phone calls or responded to emails in a more than reasonable time. This transaction was pretty clear and obviously I was the one selected and all because of the high level of negotiating skills Patricia has. "
