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?
My husband and I along with two other friends recently purchased a second home in Highlands. Julie Osborn came to us highly recommended and never let us down throughout the entire process. Julie forwarded listings to us but where she truly excelled was having a true understanding of what we wanted which at times was not easy, even for us! She really took the time to listen to all of us and to educate us as well since none of us had ever owned a second home. There had to be times she was frust…
I’ve come to know Pat as a professional who is determined and dedicated throughout the entire process of selling a property in a market that’s not fully recovered. She’s also a person who’s just plain enjoyable to work with.
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!
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.
We had been looking for property in Highlands for years. Our experience with other agents had been to see a property only to have them suggest something else beyond our price point. When we called Pat and told her we had found this particular property listed with her, she immediately told us all of the particulars of the property and was so very knowledgeable and very honest and straight forward! Pat submitted our bid and was in touch with the sellerâ€™s acceptance response the very next da…
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 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.
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…
