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!
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.
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!
We have purchased a home and sold 2 with Darlene. She always puts forth the extra effort to sell a property or help you purchase a home regardless of price or location. On one of our sales she planted flowers to help enhance the property as it was not a full time property for us. I have owned a dozen homes in several states and she has been the best agent in all aspects. ‘
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…
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.
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…
All I can say is what an awesome team Pat Allen Realty has. We live in Florida and were selling our family home in Highlands. From the moment we met Julie we knew that we were in good hands. She personally staged our home and took some fantastic pictures. She was constantly keeping us up to date on any showings, feedback from the showings and suggestions based on that feedback. We never felt pressured to do anything that we were not comfortable with. We also felt that she was always honest and u…
I have worked with Pat Allen selling my mother’s home and have only good things to say about her. She is personable, professional and highly knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in the area.
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!
