Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Mchenry, IL.

As first time home buyers we had many questions throughout the entire process. We felt that we were being taken care of very well and felt comfortable calling or texting Patricia whenever we had questions or needed advice/opinions on things. I would highly recommend Pat to anybody that is looking for a home whether they are a first time home buyer or not because she made the process a very positive experience.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Fox Lake, IL.

Pat showed my home and I had an offer the same week it was shown. She helped make the whole process a fairly easy one. I was especially happy with her guiding me through the negotiation and dealing with the buyer's list of demands.

Bought a home in 2013.

We found Pat through a home she had listed on the Fox River. My husband and I were looking for a waterfront summer home. Since we lived in Chicago, our only time to view homes was on weekends. She was very patient with us, especially with my numerous phone calls. She was very flexible with our schedule and showed us many homes. She kept us informed with daily e-mail updates on listings. We finally found the perfect home and closed the end of August.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Spring Grove, IL.

Amazing person to work with. Gets to know your wants, needs and your personality. Truly enjoyed each outing will miss seein her. She provided us with so much information on the chain of lakes. The plus and minus about living on the chain, or on the lakes. She help us see the areas to avoid due to the flood Always keep us informed about properties available. Help us see and understand about each house where there was add on and possible water damage to flooding . Checking out the neighbor hood What kind of boat do you want depends on the depth or the chain or lake. I can' t say enough about her

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Mchenry, IL.

We were new to the area so using Pat Smarto was by recommendation so with crossed fingers we started. It was more joining forces as Pat grew up in the area, was very familiar with what was on the market, but more important to us, she knew if the value in the prospective houses was there and the type of neighborhood associated with each house. These are intangible assets she brings above just being an “agent”. You know you are the client; she is the expert and will work with you until all parties are comfortable you are at the right house for your new home. Go with her, I recommend it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Antioch, IL.

Pat was with us every step of the way when we purchased our home and lake lot. We never had to wait for Pat to respond, she was always prompt and ready with great advice. Her knowledge of Lake County and the Chain O' Lakes area was so impressive and helpful to us, she truly loves this wonderful area! I think she has a passion for what she does and does it great. I would highly recommend Pat to anyone looking to buy or sell. Plus, she's just really nice and pleasant and a joy to work with.
