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’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 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. ‘
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…
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 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’
Patricia was exactly the right agent for my recent purchase of a home in Highlands. She was expert in determining what available properties would fill my needs. She was always available for questions and advice and I would recommend her services without qualification. She’s the best in the Highlands area real estate market.
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.
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!
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…
