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.
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.
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!
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…
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!
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…
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!
‘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
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…
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…
