TESTIMONIALS

Seller

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, knowledgable and client orientated. Patty has a vast knowledge of San Diego real estate, a pulse on buyer's expectations and gives her all to her clients.

Buyer

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 would absolutely recommend Patty to our family and friends. Her knowledge of the area, the process, and how she negotiated our offer were unparalleled.

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. Patty has created and encircled herself with an amazing group of professionals who work hard and assist her in making the home purchasing/selling experience a memorable one.

Any time we had a question or needed a service provider, she had a contact for us immediately. I was busy with work but struggling with how to improve my yard and patio area. Patty made a few calls and by the next day had someone on-site who transformed our mediocre yard into a relaxing oasis. Patty also encouraged us to use a staging company to help increase the value of our home. At first we were a little reluctant, but once the staging company completed their work and we were able to see the results, we determined it was a good recommendation which turned into a great investment. We would recommend Patty Contreras to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. And know If you choose her you are getting the best realtor in San Diego county and should be prepared for an amazing experience.

Buyer

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.

Seller

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 Patty received multiple offers in the first week of being listed. We closed escrow in 30 days at asking price.

Seller

This is our second time working with Patty, this time to sell a house. She jumped right into getting our property ready. Patty worked to get every last detail perfect and the results showed. She was extremely organized, honest and communicative through the entire process. Once listed, our house received multiple offers above asking within a few days. Escrow and close were smooth. Patty was a joy to work with and we'd recommend her to anyone.

Seller

Patty is a firecracker! She came well recommended from a friend who had worked with her twice previously. With multiple cash offers over listing, and potentially buyers willing to go higher, we would not have been selected and purchased our dream home if it were not for Patty. She also worked tirelessly to line up all of our inspections and everything to close escrow in only 10 days. She’s an amazing negotiator and go-getter, and also had a complete list of great inspectors and contractors. I will 100% chose her again as our real estate agent!

Seller

Patty's unbelievable communication, responsiveness, attention to detail, honesty, can do attitude and smarts positioned everything to go smoothly. All was said and done in almost exactly one month - the new owners moved in within that 30 days as well! NONE of this would have happened without Patty's focused efforts to help us and the buyer in absolutely EVERY way.

Buyer & Seller

What can I say, attention to detail and support throughout my buying experience was amazing. No wonder this has been my 4th transaction with Patty. She truly is above and beyond others. She is always one step ahead.

Her professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to drive the house through the whole sales process provided the catalyst for the best sales process possible.

Patty is very knowledgeable. She is very familiar with all the houses in 92130, their builders, their models, their pros and cons, which would greatly save you time if house hunting, especially when you just reloed from out of state and are blind of 92130.

Patty Contreras is truly the best! She always makes her clients her top priority and her attention to detail is like nothing I have ever seen. I highly recommend Patty to anyone buying or selling a home. During my selling process I never had to worry about one detail. Patty is a perfectionist. My home sold within hours of going on the market. I cannot say enough great things about my experience with Patty.

Buyer

Patty has been one of our clients for years, and we both appreciate accountable business styles. She is very responsive in her real estate transaction work and is honest, reliable and fast with accurate answers. During a recent transaction with her, she always recommended the best course of action and decided to fully disclose all the facts to the buyer’s team unconditionally and quickly. I would recommend her without reservation.

Buyer

My husband and I had completely different wants in a home. We couldn't have been further apart with our priorities. The fact that we even have a home and stayed married long enough to laugh about it today is amazing. I would have hated to have had us as clients. Patty managed to endure us and put us in a great home - where we live today. Her input and guidance to the right house was spot on. Patty will sell us our next home.

Seller

Patty is a true professional! I had many choices in choosing an agent, but I chose her based on her unique style, professionalism and track record. Which she totally lived up to all those qualities and more. Patty and her team were attentive and responsive to any issues or concerns and made selling our home easy. I highly recommend her and trust that she will do her best to get the desired price and to sell your home as quickly as possible.

Seller

Patty sold our house just over a year ago. The entire experience went smoothly and successfully. We were able to sell our house in 3 days for full asking price! I know this was due to Patty’s experience, vision, and professionalism. She knew exactly what we needed to show our house in a way that highlighted our home and presented it in the best light possible. Her commitment to her clients is genuine and expert. If you want to sell your home or are in the market for a house she will work for YOU.

Seller

We would highly recommend Patty Contreras for buying and selling homes. Patty has helped our parents sell their home for top price, 7 of our closest friends/neighbors buy/sell their home at the best price, just helped us buy our future home and will soon be helping us sell our current home. Patty's knowledge, expertise, professionalism, resources, attention to detail and ability to negotiate surpasses all others. If you put your trust and home needs in Patty's hands, it'll be the BEST decision you make (financially and emotionally).

Buyer

I have been a real estate investor since 1977 and Patty Contreras is by far and away absolutely the very best real estate professional that I have dealt with. She is very professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, hard working, honest, kind, caring, and talented. She represented my wife and I in both a real estate sale and a real estate purchase, and she preformed great attention to detail, great negotiating skills, and she worked hard to make sure that everything went smoothly for us. We are happy to give her our highest possible recommendation.

Seller

Patty was a wonderful agent from beginning to end! She had earned a great reputation in the neighborhood for selling properties for record prices, and she took on our house with the same vigor and determination. From the start, she organized and deployed her expert team - gardeners, painters, stagers - to prepare the house. Patty’s management of all aspects of the sale got us a full price offer the first weekend of our open house! I highly recommend Patty as an agent. She’s a great communicator, expert negotiator, and consummate professional!

Buyer

Patty knows the area extremely well. She knows all the communities and the pros and cons of each community. This had been extremely helpful for us when we were relocating from out of town. Patty is also very efficient in all the processes from finding a house for us to making the deal for us. She always responded to our questions immediately. She always finds a way to get answers for us. She knows the market very well and was able to recommend an offering price that would work out. She is honest and earned our trust as buyers quickly. With that trust, she was able to help us to buy a house that we still love today.

Buyer & Seller

Patty’s knowledge and professionalism are second to NONE. Her work ethic is incredible and she was available morning and night. An eye for detail is apparent in her staging and improvement suggestions to help you get top dollar for your home. She has a treasure trove of people and services available to help you through the process. Follow up and keeping her eye on the ball is yet another strength. Patty was able to represent my husband and I as sellers and the buyer of our home and keep that in balance. I would not hesitate to recommend Patty for all of your real estate needs whether you are buying or selling.

Seller

When I first met with Patty Contreras to sell my house, I was very impressed. She was well prepared and very knowledgeable about my home and the area. She is very organized and has a great team of painters, handymen and stagers to get the house in tip top shape quickly and for a reasonable price. Patty is on top of everything and made the process so easy for me to sell. She will work overtime for you. She is also very professional. My house sold with multiple offers on the first day at top price for the area. I tell everyone about my great experience I had with Patty and if you need a realtor to help you buy or sell, Patty is who you will want to hire.

Seller

Patty knows 92130 area expertly. She has lived in the area and can speak from personal knowledge about the schools and the community. She is very professional as well as very pleasant to work with. Patty listed our house and went right to work lining up staging and a professional photographer to take amazing pictures for the website and the flyer. She was always available for a phone call or a question and was extremely considerate when scheduling showings and open houses. We can't say enough about what a good experience it was to sell our home with Patty. It sold quickly and we got the price we wanted. We highly recommend Patty without hesitation.

Buyer & Seller

Patty is awesome. We have used Patty to buy and sell several homes over the years and there is no one I would trust more than Patty to represent us. She brings a wealth of real estate experience with the highest level of integrity and professionalism. Patty always has her client’s best interests in mind and we have trusted her implicitly to negotiate on our behalf. She has outstanding leadership and communication skills that is required to close any transaction. I highly recommend Patty for anyone looking for an experienced, honest, driven, and proven real estate professional. I promise you will be extremely satisfied with her results as we have been over the years.

Buyer

It took us nearly a year to find our new home. During this year, Patty guided us through many properties. She has been supportive and extremely knowledgeable. From our initial meeting, Patty was attentive to our requests and she was always available to answer our questions including on weekends and holidays. Throughout the process, Patty presented us with updated information. She has been always willing to explain every step of the process. And she continues assisting us and answering our questions even after the completion of the purchase. We have found Patty to be an outstanding professional who maintains high ethical standards and we unequivocally recommend working with her.

Seller

Patty represented us in both the sale of our home in CV and the purchase of our dream home in RSF. From the very beginning Patty was realistic and a good coach to better prepare for both transactions. Once in Escrow she explain the process and gives you confidence that she is on your side and follow all the way thru to complete the transactions. The coaching and support in all aspects of sale and purchase is key as she knows how far she can go in all negotiations and legal disclosures as well as all property inspections etc. I would recommend Patricia any time for both, purchase and sale of your property. My home in 2013 was the highest sold price within that neighborhood.

Seller

I have known Patty Contreras since we volunteered together on the Canyon Crest Academy Dollars for Scholars board. When my plans changed and I needed assistance with a long-term rental property, I immediately turned to Patty. She reviewed my options and took care of all the details, including listing the property for sale and for rent, handling staging and showing at multiple open houses, and presenting multiple offers. Patty provided clear and concise alternatives when it came time to make a decision, and made a quick escrow go very smoothly. As the president of a technology consulting firm, I travel extensively and my time is limited. I would recommend Patty as the consummate professional who takes charge, leaves nothing to chance, and delivers results.

Buyer

Patty helped us buy our first house in Carmel Valley of San Diego, when we moved from outside state and knew nothing about San Diego. She was very knowledgeable to real estate, geography we are interested and highly precise on help make the decision. On top of these points, we felt she is trustable, so we bought the current house based on her recommendation with one time viewing (even without looking at the garage when we viewed the house before making the purchase decision). As a result, we bought the house within the first week after moved to San Diego. In summary, Patty is highly knowledgeable to the area, real estate market and house properties. She is also fun to work with and highly trustable. I will not hesitate at all to work with her again if the chance is coming.

Buyer

When we decided we wanted to buy a new home we weren't exactly sure which neighborhood and we knew sort of what we wanted but not exactly. Patty asked us a lot of questions, got to know us and really listened to what we told her. She knew so much about all the areas we were interested in looking at! And taught us about things we didn't even know we should be looking for! She then began showing us our different neighborhood options, home options, etc. She showed us a lot of houses! She wanted to make sure we got exactly what we wanted and found us a place that wasn't just a house it was a home! When we finally found one we both loved it was a bidding war, but with Patty's expertise, persistence and people skills Patty got us our home! I would and have highly recommended Patty to anyone looking for a home!

Seller

I am not sure if I can adequately express my positive experience with Patty Contreras. I owned property in San Diego, but live in Philadelphia. Patty took care of everything regarding the sale of my home, and I did not have to make one trip out to San Diego. She advertised the property well, suggested beautiful staging, and showed the property immediately. The property was on the market for only one day and we went into Escrow. At that time, there were several repairs that needed to be done, and Patty hired the contractor (who was so reasonable and competent), she put pressure on the HOA to fix leaks, and we closed Escrow in 30 days. Patty went above and beyond to ensure that my property was sold in a timely manner, minimizing stress on me. I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you want to sell your house, go with Patty!!

Buyer

Patty is fabulous! She is sharp keyed in to what sells and doesn't what are good locations to live and is a wealth of knowledge! She is extremely well connected if issues arise, has assertive negotiating skills and works very hard to "get the job done". She answered all our questions quickly, efficiently and was available by text-even when on vacation. I really appreciated her honesty and assessment of the real estate we looked at for value and location. She is very client focused and will work diligently for you she tirelessly will show you properties until you find what you want and she has keen assessment skills of what you will like and she is right on! She has a wealth of knowledge and resources she can call on if the need arises. her staging of homes for sale is impeccable. We have used Patty for 3 transactions and would use her again in a minute!

Buyer

My colleagues recommended Patty to me. She deserved it. I would do the same, recommending her to friends and colleagues for house hunting in San Diego, particularly in the areas of Carmel valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Penasquitos, Rancho Bernardo and Carmel Mountain. Patty is very experienced agent who can bring you with tons of knowledge in the local real estate market/business. Patty is caring of her customers and has no hesitation to provide both positive and negative comments on many properties we saw together. In many cases I fell in love with a property but she advised against it and explain why. She is also very skillful in deal with issues coming up from house inspections and has been very helpful with finding service providers. In short, her performance is beyond a real estate agent and worthwhile to work with your next house shopping.
