Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.9M in Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA.

When my husband and I made our rapid but calculated decision to relocate our family from the East Coast to San Diego, we had no idea just how daunting this endeavor would prove to be! As in any relocation, there were many complex and critical details that needed to be taken care of in a timely manner. In our case, we were relocating our family cross-country with little knowledge of the San Diego area while being tied to an unwieldy corporate relocation service and its processes. By the way, we had only 12 weeks to identify and close on our new home! We have had numerous satisfactory experiences with our local realtors over the years. Given geographic and time differences, we had lowered our service expectations of a San Diego realtor. Patty Cohen, and her staff at Berkshire Hathaway, has set the bar high for client service – from thousands of miles away! We were thrilled (and frankly, shocked) by the unparalleled personalized attention and proactive support she provided us EVERYDAY – from the very beginning of our search to well after the close of our absolutely perfect home in San Diego. Immediately Patty understood our relocation process challenges and moved quickly to establish partnerships with our corporate relocation service representative and mortgage lender. We relied upon Patty to educate us on suitable family neighborhoods and to identify homes that matched our wish list. Because of our East Coast location, we also depended upon Patty to be our trusted advisor and eyes in the San Diego housing market. With Patty’s knowledge of the real estate market and her vast network of peers and colleagues, she was able to preview the right homes for us - many not yet listed. Very quickly, she presented us with a short list of only those homes that were worthy of a plane trip to San Diego. Patty’s short list was on target with what we sought - and with her taking the lead on negotiations and driving the entire process, we were able to purchase our dream home in SIX WEEKS. Beyond Patty’s professionalism, dedication and efficiency, she is wonderful to work with. She is warm and easy-going – and she possesses the right amount of tenacity to make sure that you are able to secure the right home, on your terms. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Patty Cohen – she truly made the nightmare of relocation a dream home come true!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $575K in College West, San Diego, CA.

Patty Cohen was personally recommended to us when we were seeking a realtor to purchase a home in San Diego. We have just closed escrow and have had such a wonderful experience with Patty that we wanted to share it. Patty has exceeded every expectation with her knowledge of San Diego, her expertise in real property deals, her patience and responsiveness. Of particular note, she did not try to ascribe popular taste to us, and "got" us right away, knowing, after a very short amount of time, what we are looking for. This is unprecedented for us, as all other realtors that we had dealt with previously would purposefully tell us how nice the granite countertops were, or how large the master bedroom is, when these are items that we specifically communicated we were not seeking or did not want. Patty understood what we were looking for right away, and previewed so many houses for us that we lost count. Two houses we visited we put offers on. One we withdrew from as a result of the inspection, and Patty was right back on it, sending us suggestions and following up on a house that we had visited and loved but dismissed as too far above our budget. Patty proactively reached out to Seller's broker to determine the level of interest on that second house, and encouraged us to put in an offer at our budgeted price. While we waited for a response, Patty managed our anxieties (we really wanted that house by that point) and kept us informed of her communications with Seller's broker. She negotiated the price, with our guidelines on budget, and after a few back and forths, we got the house at the price we were comfortable with! We couldn't be happier, especially since the list price was significantly above our sale price. We just closed, and are just delighted. We highly recommend Patty; her service could honestly not be any better. As we say in France, "c'est une perle!" (she is a pearl!)

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA.

Patty Cohen is not only an amazing realtor, but a person of integrity, knowledge and understanding as well. She navigated a lengthy search for me in finding the perfect home. In fact, when we made an offer on my home, the sellers realtor said the reason my offer, out of multiple others, was chosen was directly related to the persistence and responsiveness of Patty. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is a kind, honest, experienced, loyal and lovely individual.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $7.075M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.

During one’s lifetime one finds a few individuals that offer truly outstanding service. It is a pleasure to recommend the team of Susana Corrigan and her sister Patty Cohen. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling a home in La Jolla, California, you can’t go wrong with this team.

• First and foremost, they are extremely knowledgeable about the market. As one of the top real estate teams in La Jolla, (many years I believe they were the top brokers), they are directly involved in a substantial number of transactions. Beyond that, they have an extensive network of professionals in the business that regularly share market knowledge. Over our years in La Jolla we have met many of the competing brokers, and have not found one that didn’t rave about how they loved working with Susana or Patty. This is a truly unique response in a very competitive profession.

• Second, they provide thoughtful and relevant advice. Susana’s standard, that she regularly repeats, is “What advice would I give to my family in the same situation?” To her, serving her clients seems to have a much higher priority than doing any specific transaction. In fact, it was her knowledge of the market, and realistic advice that attracted us to enlist her services in the sale of our home. She was also of tremendous help in the final negotiation process.

• Third, they are outstanding communicators. Unlike many brokers once they have a listing, Susana and Patty regularly (and we mean at least weekly, and frequently daily) communicated what was going on not only with our property, but what was happening in the market with comparable homes.

• Fourth, they are very detail focused, one might even say obsessive (and that is a good thing). Every detail of a transaction is carefully monitored, every “i” dotted, and every “t” crossed. The entire team including the office staff stays on top of all the paperwork, making sure that responsibilities are fulfilled and time schedules met.

• And finally and most important, when one is on the selling end, they are outstanding at getting your property before the buyers in the market. Here they are willing to do what is necessary to present the product (great pictures, good internet placement, and sufficient well placed advertising). This plus they put forth an intensive marketing effort using a great Rolodex of other brokers in all the high-end markets in San Diego (here is where those great relationship pay off), and past customers who might, with a little prompting, be thinking about trading up or downsizing, or just ready for a change. The combination produced powerful results. In our case, we believe every eligible buyer looking for a property like ours toured the property.

Besides all these attributes, both Susana and Patty are exceptionally nice people and a pleasure with whom to work. We can’t recommend them more highly.

Patty is the ultimate professional. She is knowledgeable and guided me through the entire process effortlessly. She coordinated everything and kept me informed throughout the process. I recommend Patty to anyone buying/selling in San Diego. On top of being a 5 star professional, she is one the kindest people I have ever done business with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Sabre Springs, San Diego, CA.

My husband and I worked with Patty Cohen to find and purchase our first home. She came highly recommended by a friend, who described her as a real estate professional with a fierce reputation of getting the job done in addition to being a great client advocate. I couldn't agree more!

Throughout our 9 month search, Patty was very patient and responded quickly to all our inquiries (including text messages, phone calls, and emails). We didn't need much assistance with finding properties to see, but the homes were selling fast and Patty arranged our tours with as little as 2-3 days notice. She also made an effort to get to know us, and we appreciated her incorporating our short and long term goals into our search.

When we decided to place our first offer, Patty updated us frequently and got our offer accepted over the others. Unfortunately, we found some plumbing issues during the home inspection and Patty was able to negotiate a very generous credit, but was very understanding when we decided to back out. Our search continued, with double the effort.

A few months later, we walked into a home that we fell in LOVE with. We entered a multiple counter offer situation but Patty guided us through the process and broke everything down, one decision at a time. When we entered Escrow, Patty explained all the paperwork and created a timeline for us to follow. Other than completing the checklist, Patty took care of everything else! At the close of Escrow, she even hired a crew to clean the carpets, spruce up the house, and wash the garage.

We are now living in our dream home, thanks to Patty. She still checks in with us now and then, just to see how we are doing. I think that truly demonstrates her dedication to her clients, and not the sale. I am highly recommending Patty Cohen!
