I made the mistake of not hiring Pat first! I had a nice and "shinning" agent at first. Meaning looks great on the outside, but horrible and unknowledgable on the inside (if that is even a word), just a bad agent. Pat is a great communicator, if she does not know the answer, she will find out. She fights for her clients to get the best deal, and is upfront on the BS! She has the knowledge in the realtor business, and knows when someone is trying to get over on her clients. As a first time buyer, Pat really help me out on the ends and outs on buying a property. She was always available to any questions I had, and got back with me in a short time period. Me being overseas (12 hours ahead local time) was not a problem. If and when I sell, buy, hell even window shop for a new property, I will contact Pat first. You can't go wrong with her in your corner!
