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!
Julie with the help of Sherman did a great job of selling our home. They went way beyond the services of Realtor. They were my eyes there while I was away.
We listened to Pat when she discussed pricing our house and preparing it to sell. We priced according to her recommendation and she brought us a contract in a matter of days. When we encountered a couple of bumps in the road Pat knew where to go to get them smoothed out. She is a knowledgeable professional and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Pat Allen if you are buying or selling property in the Highlands area!
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!
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’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 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
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…
Sheila was a pleasure to work with and a true professional with a wealth of valuable experience to offer. Despite being in the potentially challenging position of representing both the Buyer and us as Sellers, her advice was always sound, unbiased and in everyone’s interest. We were continually impressed by her responsiveness, helpful insights and impressive follow-through on questions we had and issues that arose throughout the process. She kept in constant contact with us the entire time, ev…
‘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’
