I come from a family of realtors, my father and his wife having been in the business for more than 50 years. After graduating from Tulane University with a degree in Psychology, I moved to California and began my work in real estate. Once my husband and kids came along, I shifted focus and began working in childcare so I could be with my children more of the time. I continued working with children, first in a daycare setting and later in child social services, for the next 15 years. My family relocated to Gainesville in 1993, where I began my career in sales. After receiving my Florida Real Estate license, I have not looked back!
The market has been recovering and 2015 has been my clients’ best year yet. So far this year I have helped 47 families achieve their real estate goals and have handled over $6 million in business. Several more family “dreams” are lined up and ready to close!
My greatest joy is finding that perfect match between a family and a home. My clients will tell you I will work tirelessly to make that happen for you. In addition to the regular work-week, my clients can always reach me on evenings and weekends. I realize that buying a home can be stressful, and I work to make the process as smooth as possible. It’s my goal to make purchasing a home a fun and happy time for you, while ensuring all details are handled properly and efficiently.
I would highly recommend Patti! My husband and I worked with her in buying a condo for our daughter and she was great in finding places that met our needs and were reasonably priced. She was always prompt in responding to our questions and made the process as painless as buying a home can be. We would definitely work with her again.
In September of 2016 we began working with Patti and signed a contract to purchased a lot for building a home. We expected to move in to our new home sometime in 2017. However, the builder ran into some issues with permitting and we did not have a house until October 2019. For approximately three years Patti stayed in touch and supported us through three years of frustrations. She was the voice of calm. There was never a time that I reached out to her and not get a quick response. She had wonderful ideas to share also, as we were building a home that needed to meet Americans With Disabilities (ADA) standards. I could not have faulted her had she decided to drop us after the process took so long. She was a trooper and always professional, yet warm, friendly and engaging. I can't say enough about how easy she was to work with and just how helpful she was to our family. After spending three years together, she became more than our realtor, she became our friend and we remain in touch. I highly recommend her services to anyone that is looking for a kind, knowledgeable, honest and caring realtor.
We've used Patti's assistance to both purchase and sell our property. She listened to our needs, provided an initial list of properties to look at and was opened to additional property interests. Her knowledge of the area and resell value was excellent. She negotiated an excellent purchase price for us. She recommended several contractors that assisted us in remodeling and performing preventive maintenance. Even after closing, she was still available to assists us with our needs.
When it came time to sell, we had a set price in mind. Patti was able to find a buyer that offered us what we wanted. She worked through all the challenges of selling our property during the initial outbreak of Covid-19 and we closed on time.
Patti is highly recommended for her knowledge of the area, she is very responsive, listens to you, has excellent negotiation skills and places her clients first.
