Patricia was our realtor for the purchase of our first home. We knew nothing, and I mean nothing, about home buying (excuse me, what are closing costs?). We did not even know what type of home we wanted or where we wanted it. She patiently walked us through the process, answering our daily questions. She pointed out things in the homes that we should be aware of, even negative things like cracks in the walls. For me the most impressive thing was her responsiveness. She would show us a house that I just had to see immediately and answered our phone calls at crazy hours in the night when we thought of some random worry that we were convinced would be our house purchasing demise. She even did things that I am pretty sure is not in a realtor's job description (like talking me off a ledge when the electric company gave us a hard time). Then, she negotiated the complete coverage of our closing cost, plus some, in a market where people are paying over asking. Most of all, you will be spending LOTS of time with your realtor; Patricia was always friendly and a joy to be around. She became like family. I would highly recommend you work with her!
