Sold a home in 2013.
Pat Kahn has helped me buy and sell real estate in New Orleans for 10 years. She treated my wife, my brother and I as if we were members of her family. I was not in New Orleans most of the time, I could depend on Pat to act in my place and she was willing to do so. Pat would help rent properties during the real estate slump. She would find service people for me in the New Orleans area and pay them herself: I would pay her back later. In general, she did whatever was necessary to assure the success of our real estate ventures.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2008 in Metairie, LA.
Pat Kahn was an exemplary real estate agent. Her knowledge of the area and the entire sales process was outstanding. She knew how to advertise effectively and actively searched for buyers. She helped us "stage" our townhouse and held numerous open houses. Her pleasing personality and patience really helped everything go very smoothly. All questions were answered quickly and correctly. Pat was able to negotiate without alienating which isn't always easy. We have sold other properties in Louisiana, as well as in Illinois, Florida, California, Mississippi and Tennessee. We have never had a real estate agent with Pat's ability.

Showed home in 2013 in Central City, New Orleans, LA 70130.
For the past three years I've been searching for commercial and residential investment properties in New Orleans. I've used Mrs. Kahn exclusively as my realtor due to her knowledge of the local market, ability to understand commercial and residential rental property analysis, and her great courtesy. Mrs. Kahn is probably the best realtor I've worked with.

Helped me rent a home.
I have had two fabulous experiences with Pat that I think really displays her merit. I am an out-of-state academic who worked in the New Orleans area on two occasions in 2009 and again in 2012. I needed to find an affordable short term furnished rental unit in New Orleans while still living and working 800 miles away. I didn't anticipate how difficult this was going to be - but I discovered that realtors do not make much on these sorts of arrangements and so generally do not have a lot of incentive to go out of their way. Indeed, after trying four or five other agents over a period of six-seven weeks, I happened to find Pat and immediately good things started to happen. First and most importantly, she returned my calls quickly and she was very responsive in answering my questions - critical when one is so far away. She worked with me in scheduling for a friend who lived in the area to drive into the city to see some possibilities first hand. Pat was helpful and very knowledgable and within 5 days I had found an apartment that I was extremely happy with (indeed, I ended up staying a year !)

I returned for a 3 month work visit in 2012. At that point, I figured that since I knew New Orleans reasonably well and had many friends in the area at that point, that I would be able to locate a short term rental on my own pretty easily. Not so. The short term rental market was saturated by outside film crews during that period and after a few months of fruitless searching, once again I turned to Pat. In fairly short order she came up with a prospect in a wonderful location in the Marigny Triangle (that nobody else seemed to know about). Moreover, she negotiated on my behalf and worked out a creative arrangement with the owner that allowed me to live in a back cottage where the owner normally lived and that for less than a third of the rent that I would have had to pay had I stayed in the usual space that the owner normally rented. It was a great summer and I'm still amazed that it worked out so well.

Pat is very straightforward in her dealings with people and just flat out doesn't play games. I have always found it refreshing to work with her. Moreover, she understands the city and its arcane workings in a way that only long time residents can understand. And believe me, there are arcane workings here. When I do eventually come back to New Orleans to stay, Pat will be my realtor.

Bought a home in 2012.
My experience with Pat was first class in every category. Pat always represented MY interests in every circumstance. She works in a very difficult and unique market: the French Quarter and historically significant areas of New Orleans. She knows people to contact for valuable information about unique properties. My wife and I took an extremely long time looking for the right property and she never lost patience or enthusiasm in looking for us nor did we ever feel pressure to make offers on a property that was not "just right for us". A true professional.

Bought a home in 2005.
Dorian Bennett had an excellent web site and was the top realtor in the French Quarter. He assigned his best agent, Pat Kahn, to help me. Pat showed me everything on the market in my price range. We considered location and price per square foot and when everything else failed we went on gut reaction. Pat organized accommodation for me and within three days I had made a decision to buy. She introduced me to a mortgage agent that arranged finance. I signed all the papers, got on an airplane, flew back to South Africa, and Pat handled everything. Unbelievable. She is professional in every way. What I find most interesting is that she has a fantastic home in the French Quarter, which has been written up and published in magazines. She and her husband are part of the Mardi Gras parades and Krews. She loves the French Quarter and knows more about it than anyone else possibly could. I like her; I enjoyed being with her and working with her. It was a successful and very pleasant experience.

Sold a Condo home in 2010 in Seventh Ward, New Orleans, LA.
We have bought 3 houses with Pat and sold 3 others with her as our agent. In all cases, in buying or selling, she has consistently gone above and beyond to provide advise conserning areas of the city, investment wisdom or potential and valuable suggestion regarding marketing and showing of property. She held numerous open houses for our property to be sold and sold each in a down market at a profit for us. We were extremely delighted with her ability to steer us through the negotiation process at times and the buying strategies at others. She was intrumental in one purchasing negotiation ,that without her skills, we would not have prevailed after Katrina. We are simply VERY devoted clients
