Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Concord, CA.
Our friend recommended Patrice to us, and I am so glad we listened! Patrice was fantastic!

Patrice was great at pointing out features and flaws in the different homes, and letting us know what we could expect from each. I never felt that she was steering us, but she did bring us back to earth a time or two!

We happened to pass an open house sign one weekend and checked it out... and there was the house we wanted! It hadn't been on long, and already had a ton of offers. Patrice was on vacation at the time out of state, but I called her up.

While on vacation, Patrice still managed to negotiate with the agent here and get all the paperwork together to put in an offer the next day... and was confident that ours was the offer they'd accept! There were cash offers for the asking price, but we told Patrice this was IT, so she knew exactly what else to include to make sure ours was the preferred deal from the flipper.

Patrice was fun and professional the entire process, and I was actually sad when we were all moved in! She did suprise us with a really thoughful basket on the day we moved in as well - we did need TP!

I would recommend anyone to work with Patrice, and should we ever need to move, we'll absolutely be contacting her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Dublin, CA.
My wife and I were facing what our mortgage holder described as the necessity for a Short Sale of our home. We had interviewed a number of agents. After reading that this was a special area of expertise for Patrice, and reading what other were saying about her on Zillow, Trulia, etc, we decided to see what she might do for us. We were not disappointed. Patrice is everything written about her and more. If I wrote exactly what I thought, it probably would be viewed as exaggeration and take too much space.

When a glitch came up in the amount to which my wife and I were entitled, and we were told that it could not be undone, Patrice came through for us again!

The constraints of length of this commentary prevent us form listing her many capabilities. Suffice to say you can not go wrong! We recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Ardenwood, Fremont, CA.
Me & my wife started searching for a home 2 years back. We worked with couple other realtor agents before we were lucky to meet this awesome twosome "Patrice & Brian" through my cousin. We observed the care and attention to detail that they took for my cousin's home hunting and we decided to go with them the very day and they have been nothing but caring, patient, understanding and very helpful. Both are extremely knowledgeable and professional and it shows in everything they do. It is a very personable and fun experience when you go to open houses with them because they carry a great sense of humor :) as well in their arsenal. Since, we were first time home buyers, Patrice took us to her office and walked us through the whole process of home buying right from making an offer to getting the keys to the house and this made a huge difference in how we planned our resources. Each time we decided to make an offer, Patrice will walk us through each and every section in the contract and made us comfortable with the terms and conditions. She will provide you with timely updates between when you make an offer and when you hear the final judgement call by the seller. We still cannot forget the day we got the keys to our home and Patrice and Brian were right in there waiting for us inside with a surprise starter kit. Now, we are the proud owners of a beautiful single family home in Ardenwood, Fremont.

I would highly recommend Patrice if you are in need of a great real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Sheffield Village, Oakland, CA.
We chose to work with Patrice because she said she was relentless and determined when working on short sales to get them approved. She was all of that and then some. When our sale was taking too long and in danger of falling apart, Patrice stepped in and got everything expedited in order to keep it alive. She seemed to be the only one with the knowledge and expertise to get all of the documents in place and in the right hands in order to close on time. Without Patrice we would have added months to our sale process. I would recommend Patrice to anyone who wanted a seasoned expert with the connections and good reputation to make a deal as smooth as possible.

Bought a home in 2012.
We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor! My husband and I have been looking for just the right house (our first) for years and she never made us feel like we were an imposition. When we finally agreed on a house, Patrice took very good very good care of us and answered (even encouraged) all of our questions. And we had a lot! Because of the house we picked, there were some hiccups along the road to closing, and she was right there with us to help problem solve and get us where we needed to go - into our new house! The best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $275K in Redwood Heights, Oakland, CA.
After almost a year of looking for a suitable house in Oakland, we finally found one! And then the fun began. It was a short sale that took almost 8 months to close. The patience and tenacity that Patrice exhibited was incredible. This was not an easy sale. She kept in contact with the seller's agent and short sale representative throughout the 8mos making sure that our deal wasn't lost in the mountain of paperwork and mergers that they were dealing with at that time. Her real skill was evident at the closing when she negotiated all of the city liens, taxes, and short sale fees. Because of her skill, we didn't spend a penny more than our original offer...and our taxes were paid too! She made what could have been a treacherous deal into a smooth transaction for all.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $675K in Forestland, Oakland, CA.
Patrice is wonderful!!! We took our time finding just the right house, and Patrice could not have been more patient with us. We looked for about a year, most of the time with Patrice. She is very experienced, both in the loan processing area and home buying/selling. She noticed an important property line issue just before we closed, making sure the proper easement was in place in time for closing. We loved working with her and would highly recommended her services. She is professional, hard-working, honest, and truly a pleasure to spend time with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $750K in Piedmont Pines, Oakland, CA.
After interviewing several local realtors, I hired Patrice in 2008 as the listing agent for our home. I was so happy with the decision and whole-heartedly recommend her! She actually came recommended to me from another friend who described her as a "tiger." I would definitely echo those sentiments, except that I would now describe her as a "tiger behind the scenes, but a poised and charming professional on the outside". She knows the market thoroughly, is amazing at crunching the numbers, incredibly detail oriented, absolutely tireless, a great timeline juggler, master negotiator - and clearly loves her job! It was SUCH a pleasure to work with her. I knew she was great, but having just bought a home in another city, I even appreciate her more as no one here lived up to my expectations after working with Patrice. She's a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
