I was referred to Patty from a neighbor of my Mother when it came time to sell my Mother's house. Patty agreed to meet me on the same day I contacted her and immediately impressed me with her intimate knowledge of the area, the specific development, and her professionalism. Since I live in Orange County, my ability to get to the property was limited and Patty gladly stepped up to manage the various contractors we needed to get the property ready for sale. She provided me with her existing network of excellent contractors and also helped me with some of the decision making for what needed to be done (Paint color, carpet style/color and staging) her j...— Represented Seller | San Diego
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Patty Contreras from Compass. We spoke with several other realtors prior to meeting Patty, however none of them made us feel 100 percent confident in their ability to represent us to our satisfaction. In Patty's case we knew she was our agent 15 minutes into her presentation. She came on short notice, was completely prepared, impressed us with not just her knowledge of the current market but with her overall plan to sell our house, and, more importantly, gained our trust. She never let us down. Patty prequalified potential buyers so as not to waste time, arranged for photos and a video, was...— Karen and Jack Feldman Seller, Encinitas
Patty is an amazing realtor. She answered my call immediately when I spotted a “For Sale” sign w/ her name on it for a listing in Solana Beach. She showed me the property within a few hours. We prepared and she submitted my offer within a day which was accepted partly because of my willingness for a quick close of escrow. She handled the entire sales process exceptionally well and proved to be a consummate professional. I recommend her.— Buyer, Solana Beach
Patty demonstrated a wealth of insight and experience throughout our home search and the closing process. Given the competitive market conditions, Patty’s expertise was crucial when determining when and how much to bid on properties. We found our perfect home and ended up with the winning offer out of 16 other competitive offers - it was solely due to Patty and her team’s expertise! Uniquely, a value-add when working with Patty is her eye for design. She collaborates with a team of experts (inspectors, electricians, contractors, lenders, builders, custom cabinet makers, floor specialists, insurance brokers, etc.) throughout the process which gave u...— Buyer
We are very grateful for Patty. She helped transform our home to get it ready to sell. She worked tirelessly on design, vendor recommendation/interviewing and contractor management. She handled a ton of the work while we relocated out of state. We were confident everything would be handled professionally and with excellence, despite not being there. She helped calm our nerves and guide us through the transaction. Patty did far more than we ever imagined. She is a great negotiator, fair, kind, helpful and diligent. I highly recommend Patty. Her entire team is professional, accessible, knowledgeable and client orientated. Patty has a vast knowledge of...— Represented Seller | Solana Beach
After interviewing several Realtors® we hired Patty due to her outstanding presentation on how she planned to market our property, her Stella record and her very apparent passion and attention to detail for her profession. Patty provided a top notch, start to finish “concierge” service, bringing in seasoned and vetted contractors to prepare the house for sale (gardeners, painters, window cleaners, electricians etc…). The house was professionally staged, turned around and listed on the MLS all within a week. Patty handled every detail since we had to be out of town that week. Even though we were not able to have Open Houses due to Covid restrictions ...— Represented Seller | Carmel Valley
I would rate Patty a 10 of 10 as an extraordinary agent and here's why. She understood exactly what we needed to do to prepare our house for the highest possible price, what that ambitious price target should be and was instrumental in completing the preparation within 2 weeks. We received full asking price which was over $200,000 more than any other real estate agent recommended for list price. Many times she went over and above what we would have expected from prepping the house, to the last few days of the sales process. She has great relationships with resources such as painters, flooring, roofers and handy-men that also go the extra mile for he...— Represented Seller | Carmel Valley
Bar none the best Realtor® we have ever had the pleasure to know. Exceptional responsiveness, above and beyond service, and extra attention to the details to ensure best results. Cannot recommend Patty enough.— Represented Buyer | San Clemente
We chose to team with Patty after some of our family had worked with her to purchase their home. She came highly recommended! We valued how Patty used her experience and knowledge of homes to give us an accurate picture of each property we saw. It was impressive that she had a team of people in the industry that she could recommend to us for repairs and remodels. We also appreciated how she was always doing her utmost to respect people's times and deadlines by staying ahead of schedule. Patty was always in regular communication with us. When making offers, she gave us time to digest big decisions as well as nudged us forward if we needed it. We woul...— Represented Buyer | Shadow Ridge - Vista
We chose Patty Contreras as our Realtor® because of the great job she did in helping us find a home. Her knowledge and experience of rules and regulations within the local area are phenomenal. It was due to the wonderful partnership we formed during our first buying experience that we requested her services again in selling our current property. She was always available to us, as her clients, to answer questions or concerns at any time of day throughout the entire process. One of the most impressive qualities we experienced was her forthright attitude and disinclination to back down which showed us that she always had our best interests at heart. Pa...— Represented Buyer and Seller | San Marcos
Patty recently helped me put an offer on a property in San Diego. In a competitive market with multiple offers, I learned firsthand how important it is to have an agent who’s experienced and understands how to write a compelling and clean offer. She understands what's needed to compete with other buyers and get an offer accepted when there's stiff competition. She helped me get into contract without overpaying for the property. Because it was an older, historic home she was extra diligent in setting up a full set of inspections to look at every aspect of the house. This turned out to be a blessing. The inspections came back with a lot of very seriou...— Represented Buyer | North Park
