"We were first-time home buyers and completely new (and nervous!) about the whole process. Patricia made everything extremely easy and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is extremely professional and reliable and really looked out for our best interest. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area where we were buying. We wouldn't think twice about recommending her or working with her again. She's awesome!"

"Pat was so patient with my wife & I throughout the process of buying our 1st home together. We were very picky and were in the market for a very long time. Oak Park was our ideal landing spot and it was critical to work with an agent who was part of the local network. There are a lot of particulars unique to Oak Park and Pat is well versed in them. She always responded quickly to our many questions. Ultimately the last house we looked at was the best and we didn't have to overpay!"

"We engaged Pat after nine months of our condo sitting unsold with another realtor. She had fresh ideas, a candid manner we appreciated and worked with us to strategize the best way to present our unique property. She stayed on top of interested buyers and their agents and she got the job done. Pat is responsive, listens well and worked well with some of our challenges, i.e., trying to sell a property while living out of state. She is a terrific realtor and a delightful person. Recommend her highly."

"Pat was recommended to me 22 years ago when I began my search in Oak Park for a condo. Her real estate industry knowledge, professionalism, honesty and attention to detail were key factors to her earning my trust and continued business."
