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 engaged Steve to list my cabin at Mirror Lake this year. I am an agent in Atlanta, so I am very familiar with the industry. He is very knowledgeable and very patient. I would recommend him without reservation. Five Stars! Kathy McLean’
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…

Pat and her team of brokers helped with every aspect of selling my home in Highlands. Emails or phone calls following the showing of the house was very much appreciated along with recommendations for marketing the house.
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!

Thanks to Steve, our house sold quickly for close to asking price. Additionally, he was very helpful in scheduling the home inspection and assisting in locating a professional to …
Pat is a real go-getter. She does not take too many listings and really works to sell the ones she takes. She thinks strategically and then executes. What more can I say?
