Words From Pat’s Clients:
“We loved working with Pat and Erica. They helped us to buy our first home and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with the process. Pat’s knowledge of home repairs was invaluable. He was able to give us ballpark estimates on repairs to make sure the fixer we bought wasn’t out of our price range. Also fun and pleasant folks to spend time with. They never tried to get us out of our price range and even recommended that we not bid on a certain house which we were considering due to the possibility of some expensive structural issues that we didn’t initially catch. We were really impressed by this willingness to pass on a commission in order to make sure we got a home that we were happy with. We ended up finding a home we love and managed to negotiate it below the asking price, which is pretty incredible in this market. Thanks so much to both of you for your hard work! Highly recommended.”
“We used Portland’s Alternative Inc., Realtor for our first time home buying experience and the value of Carla, Sally, and Pat cannot be overstated. They are an amazing team, well rounded, well informed group of people who value the human behind the purchase. You will not be disappointed going with them for your home buying needs.”
“I feel grateful beyond measure to have been referred to Leia and Pat at Portland’s Alternative Realtors. Leia is probably better at her job as a broker and realtor than any other person I have met in ANY given job, real estate or otherwise. As first time home owners, buying during the holiday season with high interest rates, my husband and I felt an overwhelming sense of calm knowing that we were in such knowledgeable and thorough hands.
I felt like Pat and Leia helped us through what otherwise would have been an overwhelming process to find the right house for us, they accommodated our many requests for inspections and contractor quotes ahead of the final close date. They knew how important this decision was for us, and took it just as seriously as we did, all the while working generously with their time to meet our short timeline…
Thanks to Leia and Pat, we were able to close early on our home, and move in in time for the holidays. It felt more like working with family because of how genuinely invested they were in our happiness and satisfaction and never made us feel pressured to move quicker than we were ready and kept both my husband and I completely informed. We love our home and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with a home buying or selling decision besides Leia and Pat. They make such a good team!”
“I had a great experience buying my home with Pat. He was patient as I looked at many, many houses and redefined my wish list. Pat’s construction knowledge was extremely helpful when looking at older homes and toying with potential updates and remodels. I would recommend Pat for any real estate needs.”
