I recently had the pleasure to work with Julie Osborn of Pat Allen Realty Group on the purchase of my new Highlands home. And it was a pleasure! Julie is so thorough and thought of things I never would have thought to consider in looking for and purchasing a second home. She was gracious, thoughtful, insightful and accessible! All qualities you dream of in a real estate agent and are so difficult to find. I never felt pressured, and we looked for quite a while until I found what I wanted….a…

I cannot say enough good things about Julie and Pat with the Pat Allen Realty Group. They are Professionals in every sense, and add a personal human element you simply can’t find at other real estate Brokerages. I’ve known and have worked with Julie for over 10 years and consider her a dear friend. One of my close friends was on the hunt for the perfect investment property in Highlands. This was his first residential investment so he was a bit nervous about the process. Julie made him feel at ea…
When we first contacted Julie Osborn of Pat Allen Realty Group about one of her listings, she met us on a weekend at a time that was convenient for us. That particular listing was not suitable for us, but she listened to what we wanted and needed. After showing us a couple of other current listings, she developed an accurate sense of our tastes, and she diligently watched for new suitable listings. When the right house came on the market, she acted quickly to show it to us, and we were able…

Julie did an excellent job selling our house after another agent was not able to do so. We got a quick sale, close to the asking price, and Julie kept us informed all during the process. We would highly recommend her to anyone in the market, buyer or seller!
Pat has assisted my husband and I in the sale of several properties and the purchase of one spectacular property. She is wonderful! She knows her property, knows the community and most of all knows how to match buyers and seller. Her office makes you feel like you have come home to see old friends and her photographer is the best!
After an unsuccessful listing for a year with another realtor, Pat took over and sold my house at a great price in a difficult market in 4 months. Her marketing made the property so attractive its on-line listing had many hundreds of hits per month. I was so pleased I asked her to help me buy another property and she did so in one month. Her emails to me were date stamped at 0730 in the morning and 9:30 at night. It seemed like she did not rest until she delivered! And she evermore did!
When I decided to sell my cabin in Highlands, I asked several long time business people in Highlands for a referral on an agent. Pat’s name came up every time I asked. From the first moment I met her I knew that she was the real deal. She totally lived up to the input that I received from others who know her and have worked with her over the years. My personal selling experience was top notch, very personal and individualized. She cares about the client and their needs, not her own. She is hones…
