I highly recommend; and have done so numerous times; Julie Osborn and her whole team. We have bought two homes and sold one the same day we listed it; all using Julie. Her work ethic is above par, she treats everyone empathetically and professionally. Her advice and knowledge has always proved to be correct and we have found her to be a valued source for local trades. Both my husband and I have been involved in real estate both as Realtors and a lender since the mid-eighties in other stat…

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…
I have known Julie for 12 years and she is the ultimate professional real estate broker. She is very thorough in the representation of Buyers and Sellers, and leaves no stone unturned in finding the right opportunity for those she represents. I would highly recommend her for any challenge in residential real estate, and she will pursue her endeavors with a high degree of enthusiasm, credibility, and resolve.
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…
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!
Pat Allen Realty Group was a fabulous choice we made to sell our home – and sell it unbelievably fast – in 9 days!! They did not waste one minute, as soon as we contracted with them, and never stopped working on our behalf. They were tireless and unrelenting – to every detail; e.g., a great showing. Pat Allen Realty did 99% of the work needed, to prepare for a showing, and did not leave it to us. And Pat’s negotiation skills are next to none, I am sure. She guided us perfectly. I could tell imme…
‘Pat has an amazing wealth of knowledge of the Highlands area and the homes that are for sale. I could not imagine using anyone else to find our mountain home. Pat is very patient and is always so responsive and helps with many other aspects of finding a home. ‘ Kelli and Robert Bowker
Pat helped us locate the acerage that we ultimately built our cottage. The negotiations were long and difficult due to many factors including the land owner was not local. We would use Pat again and highly recommend her!
