I'm an architect in San Francisco and have known and worked with Patty for years. I've helped countless of her clients with remodels to recently purchased homes. I've even worked with Patty on a couple of her own. To me she is the godmother of SF bay real estate. She literally has decades of experience, and when I heard that she moved across the bay to Oakland, I asked her to help me find a house for myself. We just moved in. If you choose to work with Patty, she will be a dogged and tireless advocate to pinpoint the best neighborhood and the best property to suit your needs and desires. She has an intuitive knowledge of the psychology of the real estate market, and whether you're buying or selling, she will make it happen.
We had the pleasure of working with Patty to buy a home in Oakland.
We met at an open house, where we ended up talking for a while about our home search, and she followed up. Patty took a lot of time to find out what we liked and didn't like about homes. From the beginning we told her we weren't looking to buy right away, and she had no problem sending us listings, going over open houses, and calling to see if we needed more guidance on neighborhoods.
Coming from San Francisco, we weren't sure what neighborhood was right for us. Since she was previously a Realtor in San Francisco, she is really good about comparing areas of San Francisco to the East bay. She guided us to areas she knew we'd like.
When our search got more serious, Patty spent time every week to find exactly the types of homes we were looking for. We went to open houses together, she sent us comps, and she was honest about what we could afford and why. We found our dream home through Patty, and she worked tirelessly with the selling agent to get our offer accepted! The closing process was unconventional, as we were out of the country on a previously planned vacation. She worked through docusign, email, message, and all the means necessary to make sure the paperwork was right.
All of the things listed above helped us find our dream home, but what I really loved about Patty is her point of view on real estate. She talks about the "modicum of charm" and knows which houses will withstand a down market. Patty is the best, I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the East bay!
My wife and I bumped into Patty at an open house in the East Bay back in September of 2017. Fast forward a few of months and we are now living in a lovely little home in the East Bay... Thank you Patty!!!
We are both extremely thankful that we crossed paths with Patty when we were searching for homes. She's been an integral part of our home buying process. Patty found us exactly what we were looking for and kept everything on track during purchase process. She was on top of absolutely every little detail, which helped to keep our stress levels at a minimum.
My wife and I were surprised once everything was signed, sealed and delivered. We thought to ourselves... is that it?! Are we really all done?! So quickly and easily. We have Patty to thank for making it so. Not only does she have a wealth of experience as a Realtor, she is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and driven. We really appreciate the time she spent with the two of us, questions she asked and guidance she provided while we were searching for our home. I can't recommend Patty enough!! When the time comes for us to look for a bigger place... we know who we'll be working with :)
Patty was a joy to work with. We had been looking for homes in San Francisco and the East Bay for over 1.5 years. When we shifted our focus to be in the Oakland/Berkeley area it was clear her extensive knowledge of the area was going to be a huge asset to our search. She was personable, funny and had a lot of connections to other brokers in the area which ultimately helped us find our home. She comes highly rated by us and we'd recommend her to anyone who is looking in the East Bay!
Patty is such a fabulous Realtor! Moreover, she is a wonderful person! Patty has been in the real estate business for a long time and it shows; that is, she knows what she is talking about and is the best person to have by your side when searching for a home. ☺ She has so much knowledge and insight. It is apparent that she truly loves what she does and wants to find the right home for her clients. She does not hesitate to “tell it like it is” and, when she does; it is in the best interest of her client. She was sincerely a pleasure to work with, and my husband and I cannot say enough great things about her. She found us our dream home and at the right price. She is such a hard worker and clearly passionate about what she does. I would recommend her to any and all of my friends. Thanks, Patty!
Patty is everything you would want in a Real Estate Broker Associate: knowledgeable about the area, professional, honest, positive, and passionate.
She's a tireless and tenacious advocate, and enjoys searching with you for that home with, 'a modicum of charm'.
In addition, she has developed an extensive network of agents, brokers, and contractors. Highly recommended!
Although I've owned two homes before, this is the first time I've had to shop for a home, and doing so in the Bay Area can be an intimidating experience. That's why for me it was important to find a realtor who knew the area, was on top of market conditions and could guide me on making the right decisions, including the selection of financing before the sales and contractors afterwards.
Patty Rogers was the perfect agent for the job. After meeting her at an open house, I gave Patty some examples of homes that interested us and she put together a comprehensive list of places to view. Patty pointed out the emerging neighborhoods, where values were most likely to increase but may involve extra transportation to work. She also identified listings that were likely to sell for way over the asking price. Insights like these allowed us to narrow down our choices to the relevant properties.
When it came time to put in the offer for our place, she did thorough analysis of the area and arrived at a suggested offering price. After some careful analysis myself, we made our submission, and while our offer was tied with another party, ours was accepted. Thanks to the selection of a respected banker whom Patty had referred me to, all of my "financial ducks" were lined-up and we were able to close on the property in 21 days.
If you are looking for an East Bay property, I cannot recommend Patty enough.
We knew Patty for only a week before she found us a home. Prior to that we had been looking for 3 months and been let down by other agents. Patty nailed the offer price that got us our place. She knows the market, has had every kind of experience and is a pleasure to work with. I don't know how you could do better.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Patty. She is a force of nature and both her buyer and myself were blown away by her tenacity and work ethic. It's a very tough market out there and she knows exactly what to do and how to get it done. I'd highly recommend her to any future East Bay buyers. She was a pleasure to work with and made my job easier by being on top of her game and extremely professional throughout the process
Patty was instrumental in helping us get into our dream home in the East Bay. She came highly recommended by a fellow broker in San Francisco, when we decided to look in that direction instead and we could not be happier! She's worked in the area for years, so she has great knowledge of the different neighborhoods. She really took time to ask questions and understand our style / needs / budget. The East Bay can be particularly tricky when it comes to offer prices, and she was especially helpful in that department. Highly recommend!
