Testimonials

    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!

    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 seller’s acceptance response the very next day. Thanks to Pat, our dream of owning property in Highlands is now a reality! We highly recommend Pat to all our friends, and to anyone who would ask, Pat Allen is the “go to” Real Estate Agent for buying, selling, our exploring the potential of either; as well as service beyond the sale in the Highlands area!
    We Love you Pat, and thanks again!

    Pat went above and beyond the role of realtor to explain the community and golf options available to us and was very helpful in every way with the buying process. Always available and personable, she knew the market cold! Would recommend her most highly to anyone seeking real estate in the area.

    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 honest, ethical and knows this market like the back of her hand. Pat is extremely well connected and makes things happen. The professional photographer (and Pat’s business partner), Julie Osborne, did a beautiful job of presenting my property. I cannot say enough about Pat, Julie and the entire staff at Pat Allen Realty Group. If you are looking to buy or sell in Highlands, do yourself a favor and call Pat.

    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.

    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 up front with us. We did have a few hurdles to overcome but her team stepped up and made sure those obstacles were handled professionally and expeditiously. We sold the home in a short time and it was bittersweet, but if we had to do it again we would not change who we entrusted to sell our wonderful family home.

    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 frustrated with us ( although she NEVER showed it) as there were times we were truly frustrated with ourselves. Julie’s dedication to her profession is clear and her knowledge of the Highlands/Cashiers area is superb! We purchased our home in December 2017 and have never looked back! We love our Highlands neighborhood! We love our street! We love our view! We love our home!

    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….and could afford 😊

    Also, I got to know the entire team at Pat Allen Realty Group, and they are all like a family; some of them really are, so it’s just the perfect combination. Someone was always available to answer any questions, give me guidance or just listen.

    I would buy every home for the rest of my life with Pat Allen Realty Group. I hope to be friends with them for many years to come….even after the sale.

    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 ease, identified the best home for him, negotiated the best price, and he is ecstatic with the results.I would never consider anyone else in the Highlands market. They’re simply the best.

    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 to get a contract before other potential buyers.  After the contract was executed, Julie’s help became truly indispensable.  She helped us through the “due diligence” period with the skills of a true professional.  We were definitely not first-time home buyers, but she thought of and followed through on potential issues which we would not have thought to pursue. For example, she made sure that we were aware of all potential road maintenance issues and neighborhood association rules, and she contacted the city government and arranged a meeting to discuss our rights moving forward with future renovations.  She even contacted past contractors who had worked on the home and arranged to have unfinished jobs completed prior to occupancy by us.  Julie also gave us insightful advice regarding an encroachment issue that arose. She continues to work with us following the closing to help us find the right talent to put the finishing touches on our new home.  We recommend Julie Osborn without reservation to home buyers in the Highlands/Cashiers market.
