Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Oceanside, CA.
First, I have purchased eleven properties using ten different agents, never using the same one twice. Second, I know many real estate agents. Some are friends, others are spouses of co-workers or friends. I have known Patrick Conahan for fifteen years and have witnessed his initiative and thoroughness. I needed an agent for a complex transaction involving a 1031 tax exchange of two properties for a single replacement property. I was going to use a local agent for the sale of one property because the property was not in an area previously familiar to Patrick. He told me he could handle the listing without difficulty. He researched the comparable sales to get a working knowledge of the area. We then travelled to the area to look over the comparables. Not being overly familiar with the area, Patrick listened when I would point out the shortcomings of one property or another and as I pointed out specific neighborhood boundaries. When we agreed on a listing price it was above the market and we agreed to see what kind of interest was developed. At the same time we placed the second property on market in a more familiar area and started the process of looking for replacement properties. Patrick tailored a computer program to look for a replacement property that fit our needs and every day we were sent a list of the properties that met those qualifications. My wife and I would additionally search the computer using other sites and drive the areas to become more familiar. As we found possibilities, Patrick would update his programs to meet our new requests and adjust his searches to incorporate new possibilities. I asked Patrick for a recommendation for a 1031 Exchange company and decided on Exchange Resources Inc. of San Diego. Monique was very professional and had an answer for every question. We were able to sell both properties and complete the 1031 exchange within the timeframes of the law. One property was sold to a buyer using a V.A. loan. Patrick was knowledgeable on the V.A. requirements and that transaction went smoothly. Patrick was skillful and responsive during the process. His use of the Docusign program for all the paperwork generated by this complex transaction was a timesaver of enormous proportion. His network of tradesmen to complete the necessary tasks associated with the sales and purchase of properties was extremely helpful. If you are looking for a tireless worker who is abreast of the latest trends in both real estate and the tools associated with the sale and purchase of property, I would highly recommend Patrick Conahan.
Pat is the go to guy when dealing with real estate in Encinitas. He helped us sell our exisiting home, at a fair price, while helping us through a complicated purchase of our new home. His expertise is invaluable for both first time buyers and exisiting home owners as he knows the area quite well. Always a pleasure to work with and highly professional. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services.

I've come to know Patrick Conahan as he took over managing our rental home from a previous property management firm. From his introductory letter, I had a sense he would be a conscientious and trusted professional in ensuring that our property would be taken care of, especially since we lived out of state. From finding responsible tenants to dealing with ever-present repairs, he made sure to communicate those issues and other concerns with me in a timely manner, and I counted on his advice when decisions needed to be made.
After some time, we decided to sell the property. It made sense to have Patrick handle the listing and sale as he knew the property and its history. He updated me periodically as to the feedback the property was eliciting from MLS and adjusting strategy if needed. We were fortunate to have had a quick close. Patrick made sure the closing process went smoothly for us.
There are many real estate agents out there. One must choose wisely. Patrick ended up being our "go to" person for our real estate needs, from property management to eventually listing and selling our rental home. We are fortunate to have had a trusted and conscientious professional in our corner. He has my highest recommendation.
Patrick Conahan is an excellent real estate agent and consummate professional. His years of experience and insight came in very handy during our 2012 search for a home.

Best of all, Patrick is very personable and a pleasure to work with, highly recommended!!

Mr. Conahan did an excellent job - demonstrating a sincere concern for meeting our particular needs by prompt detailed responses and well planned use of our time. Since we were moving from another state across the country, he had to make adjustments for time and the selling of our property out of state. He monitored the progressive steps keeping us up to date, encouraging us and looking out for our best interest. He is knowledgeable and thorough. We would highly recommend him! We are grateful for all he did!
