Experienced Seller: Most Prepared + Transparent

 

I have bought and sold many, many houses over the years. Patti is the most prepared and professional realtors I have ever worked with. She makes the sale of a home easy and seamless. I would recommend her to anyone in the strongest manner possible.

Out-of-Town Sellers: Looked out for us

 

Patti is an outstanding agent! We are out of town clients and she was exceptionally helpful getting things done in our absence. She was always looking out for our best interests.  I appreciate her boundless energy and enthusiasm throughout the process. Patti was able to manage the rehabilitation and sale of desirable but distressed property and pull in top dollar with a innovative but effective sales strategy. I highly recommend Patti.

Happy Seller: Hired the area Expert

 

I recently had Patti sell my condo located in Marin County, California. She is masterful as a Realtor, knows the market and up to date with the latest Real estate technology. Many of my documents allowed for electronic signatures. I chose Patti because over the many years of residing in Larkspur, I received numerous postcard mailings from her asking to sell for me. To me, this showed she was very proactive by taking the extra time to put together and send out these annual advertisements. She has likely sold more condos from my particular condo complex than any other Marin Realtor. She is very knowledgable and able to get you through the entire process quickly and with less confusion, making it a great experience. She's a consciencious person and cares that you have a geat experience, whether buying or selling. You can't go wrong hiring her as your realtor of choice in the Marin area.

Out-of-State Investor: Proactive + Trusting

 

We needed a knowledgeable, responsive agent in the greater Marin County area to help with one of our projects. Patti Cohn was highly recommended by several contacts we had, and they were spot on! Patti was fully engaged - professional, personable, and proactive - helping with selling our property. We will definitely turn to her for our next project in that area and recommend Patti to others!

Grateful Senior Citizen: You have been of great service to me

 

Being an elderly man, she was very kind in every way.…You are a very caring person and take time with your people. And you are a well-rounded lady and a great agent.  You have been of great service to me.

Relentlessly sold my beach house

 

I asked Patti to list my home in Stinson Beach after it was previously listed with a local broker. I gave Patti 4 months to complete the sale and she got it done. She was relentless in her pursuit and kept pushing until the sale closed. I recommend Patti very highly. She is aggressive, resourceful and a masterful negotiator.

Sold Two Homes: More than I  expected

 

Patti sold two residences for me in 2009 at the height of the recession. The sales were done in a timely fashion. Her knowledge of local real estate values, the actions and activities required to complete sales, responsiveness to buyer questions about the properties for sale and other skills particular to her work in real estate transactions was superior to what was asked for and expected. I would definitely recommend Patti to potential clients.

Investor Buyer + Seller: Consummate Professional

 

Patti Cohn is the consummate professional. She represented me in the purchase and sale of a charming Ross home. Shortly after those transactions were completed, our friends were in need of a home and before the month was done they were moving in! Patti gets the job done.

On Market for 1.5 years: I did what she told me

 

Patti is very personable and her helpfulness, thoughtfulness, confidence, wealth of knowledge & resources definitely put others at ease. She is great with people and can handle all kind of people including challenging client such as myself. We still joke and laugh about our first meeting. She is very intelligent & creative, definitely thinking outside of the box, making her always ahead of the game. I highly recommend Patti as a great real estate agent. Someone you can trust. I was unable to sell my condo for 1.5 yrs w/ my last agent. When I worked w/ Patti, right the way she was straight with me about what I needed to do and the sales price range I should ask for, given the declining market. I did everything she told me to, but I was stubborn and insisted on a high asking price. After a few months, I finally listened to her and the condo went quickly. She is very easy and pleasant to talk to and work with, yet I know she is assertive and proactive in advocating for me, and going after what I want. She has become a very good friend since the sale of my condo in 2008. She is reliable and very responsive with my calls. I appreciate her work ethics and great people skills, and I trust her knowledge and judgments. I highly recommend Patti.

Single Seller: Looked like she could get things done in a hurry

 

A year before selling my Novato condo, I started looking for a realtor by visiting open houses.Patti was hosting one nearby and I hit it off with Patti because she was bright, enthusiastic, buttoned-up, and knowledgable. Looked like she could get things done in a hurry. When it came time to sell that's just what she did. Would I use her again? You bet.

Realtor with a heart: We closed on Valentines day

 

Patti is a wonderful listener, a savvy businesswoman and a faithful friend. She treats her clients like kings and queens whether they are buying a cottage or a castle. Patti knew JUST the place & before the sun set over the Sunset Lagoon in Bel Marin Keys we were on our way to setting sail as giddy new homeowners. She is honest, compassionate, & radiates with intelligence & integrity.

First time buyer: Blood hound on the trail

 

Patti is vivacious and knowledgeable, with exceptional ability to help manifest what her clients want. She is a bloodhound on the trail of her client's dream house and her knowledge of the Marin Real Estate Market is phenomenal. She is a dream to work with.

Found dream home: She got us money back

 

Patti spent a lot of time with us looking for the perfect home in the perfect location. She has great energy and a great attitude. Once we did find our dream home, life got crazy and Patti helped us pull everything together to close on time even while I was away in Europe on business. She negotiated on our behalf and helped us get money back for repairs on a bank owned home which is really an impressive feat. I would recommend her highly and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Blended Family: Rare combination of Smart + Heart

 

Patti has an incredible business mind. She has been extremely successful in her own real estate investing and we unequivocally trust her. She is a rare combination of smart and heart..  She was patient, honest, informed and negotiated on our behalf.  Her positive attitude made this entire process a delightful experience.

We've bought + Sold 8 times with Patti

 

I couldn't recommend Patti more highly. She is the only realtor I have used since 1991 and she has helped me buy and sell 8 different times and every time I sold at top dollar and bought at a great price. Transactions were always done professionally, on time, and with the greatest integrity. You can't get any better than Patti!

Infectious Enthusiasm

 

Patti's energy, enthusiasm, intelligence and level of care are so infectious that your life and business cannot help but be massively affected by your association with her. I have seen her help people literally snatch their ultimate success from what seemed like certain defeat. This is a woman you want on your side.

Appraiser + Attorney: She will knock on doors

 

Patti provided my husband and I with outstanding service twice; as the listing agent for a property we owned in San Anselmo and also with the purchase of our home. I am a real estate appraiser and was very impressed with Patti's knowledge of the local market. Patti is not the type of agent to show you a property and talk about how 'cute' it is, or how nice the seller's personal property looks, which are personal peeves of mine as a knowledgeable and educated real property professional. She is one of the few residential brokers I know of in my local market who has an MBA. Additionally, she impressed me with her work ethic and integrity from the beginning of the process. My husband and I hired her on the spot when we asked her a question and her response was, "I don't know the answer to that off the top of my head, but I will knock on doors and find out." Her willingness to do the hard work paid off for us, as Patti brought in two pre-approved buyers for our San Anselmo property, resulting in the second highest record sale price for that location; subsequently she helped us negotiate a great deal on our Corte Madera residence when the market had softened. I have been exceptionally pleased with Patti, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hard-working, honest and knowledgeable listing agent or buyer's agent.

Ying + Yang Sellers: Made our dreams come true

 

I want to thank you because you made all our dreams come true. I mean that. Being the professional you are made it an easy transition. Plus, you have quite an intuitive sense, especially when it came to working with Scott and I, since we are so very different…Yin and Yang.

Sold it quickly: Exceeded our highest expectations

 

We highly recommend Patti as a realtor.  Her enthusiasm is contagious.  Her professional experience influenced the outcome of our selling our condo quickly.  Patti met with us to set a market-appropriate asking price and scheduled an open house.  Within the week, she called us with an all-cash, over-asking-price offer.  She expertly guided us in issues that came up during escrow.  Thirty days later, when the whole process was concluded, she mailed us a disk with all of the transaction papers copied on it.  Through it all, Patti’s availability, knowledge and competence made this a smooth and pleasant experience.  She more than exceeded our highest expectations!

Sold my house 50k over asking

 

There should be a higher rating for Patti's responsiveness and negotiation skills! We hired her to sell our home in Kentfield after it had been on the market for a while. She was very easy to work with, had an incredible network locally of agents representing buyers who hadn't seen the house, and was able to not only get an offer when other agents couldn't - but she negotiated a $50k increase and it sold for over the asking price. After the offer was accepted she followed-through daily to make sure everything happened quickly and perfectly. I will plan on using her again!

Sold family home of 50 years always with a big smile

 

I highly recommend Patti Cohn to anyone selling a home.

Patti Cohn is one of those rare quality people that always has a positive attitude and a big smile. We were selling a property that had been in the family over 50 years and there were some challenging dynamics to overcome. Because of Patti's knowledge of the market and market values, excellent marketing strategy and superb real estate instincts we feel grateful and lucky to have had her representing us.

Her great people skills, charming personality, energy, creativity and intense work ethic made the whole process incredibly enjoyable with the end result being the selling of our family home.

With her many clients to deal with she still manages to make you feel like you are the most important one. She did so much more than anyone should ever expect and even better she does it without even being asked.

Patti always answered our calls or if she was not available she got back to us very promptly. She was always on time and NEVER late and does whatever she says she will do if not more!

I am a retired business person that has had many real estate transactions over the years but Patti Cohn made the sale of our home in MARIN one of the most pleasurable experiences ever!

I would recommend Patti Cohn without hesitation.

Doctors Buying: Available + Eager

 

It’s been 5 years now since we purchased our condo in Corte Madera with Patti Cohn as our agent. Deciding whether to buy or continue with a rental, and our varying enthusiasm for the market, made for a long and uncertain process for us. Nevertheless, Patti was always available and eager to show us another unit when we became motivated. She achieved the nice balance of listening to our impressions on a neighborhood or particular condo and providing factual feedback without imposing her opinion. When we finally found a location and 2 units of interest, she was professional and effective in handling the offers and discussions with the other agents. During the discovery and paperwork phase she was efficient and negotiated any sticking points, and we closed on time. After the sale she has been responsive when minor issues came up, eg., no keys to the mailbox. When it is again time to sell/buy real estate in Marin County we will turn to Patti.

Rehab Property Seller: Beyond great!

 

I recently used Patti to sell an investment property that I had purchased to rehab and fix in Fairfax, CA. I found Patti to be VERY responsive, professional, communicative and beyond GREAT! She certainly knows her market and this is what I really needed to conduct the transaction from out of state. Her recommendations for a professional stager, cleaning person and repairman were on point and reasonably priced. There is no doubt that her "team" helped to sell this house. In addition when our first contract fell through (no fault of Patti's, just a nervous first time home buyer), she brought us TWO new offers within a couple weeks. I am a VERY happy customer of Patti's.  I am always a proponent of interviewing multiple agents for a job and Patti was my top choice. I sincerely recommend her for selling your property.

Buying + Selling: On the case hourly

 

Patti handled both the sale of our house and the purchase of a new one. Time was of the essence. With very little inventory to choose from, Patti was on the case hourly to see new listings and make sure we were first in line to make an offer when the right one came on the market. She helped us negotiate a reasonable sale price with the new owners who came to us prior to even having one open house. With the market dynamics in such flux, it was great to work with Patti knowing that she was aware of the changes and had enough experience to navigate thru them to a successful conclusion for us. We closed on the sale one day and closed on the purchase of the new house the very next day, making the transition and downsizing as painless as possible!

Move up Buyer + Seller: Marketing skills impeccable 

 

Patti Cohn helped us both with the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current home in 1999. She was available to answer questions about both at all times, and conducted the transactions in the most professional manner possible. In addition, she was kind and friendly, and is still a friend to this date. Her marketing skills are impeccable. Patti is the only real estate agent we will every use or recommend.

Unique Property: She'll close the toughest deals

 

Patti is local girl who has an instinctive knowledge of the Marin County market. She is always just a phone call away and will close the toughest deals we have. I wouldn't look anywhere else, she's our Go To Marin Realtor!

Wish we retained her the first time

 

During a difficult market in Mill Valley in 2010 Patti was a real pro. My wife and I had to move back east on short notice and after a number of months with another agent a long she came providing good knowledge about the pricing of our condo and a marketing effort which produced results. She communicates well and really understands the Marin real estate market. Our only regret was that we didn't retain her in the first place.

We would highly recommend her to anyone and do so with no reservation whatsoever.

Sold Stinson Beach: Resourceful + Master Negotiator 

 

I asked Patti to list my home in Stinson Beach after it was previously listed with a local broker. I gave Patti 4 months to complete the sale and she got it done. She was relentless in her pursuit and kept pushing until the sale closed. I recommend Patti very highly. She is aggressive, resourceful and a masterful negotiator

Out-of-Country Seller: She coordinated painters + Plumbers

 

Patti is a true professional. We do not live in Marin and she was able to help coordinate plumbers, painters and anything that we needed help completing prior to closing escrow. She is always accessible and very efficient and transparent.

Overcame major complications

 

Outstanding real estate agents like Patti are few and far between, but they are critical if a purchase and/or a close has complications. Our purchase started out simple and joyful where Patti found us the perfect house. Then a few days before close, there were major complications from the seller. Patti rose to the occasion and knew exactly what actions to take to work through all of the many hurdles and made the close happen. She has an amazing personality, loves what she does, is a great negotiator and puts all her energy into finding her clients the best property.

Corporate relocation: She worked tirelessly

 

We highly recommend Patti! She is very knowledgeable, easy to work with, knows the market and works hard to please the customer. Patti worked tirelessly to ensure all aspects of the close went through smoothly and even helped us with aspects of our move. A fabulous Realtor.

First time Buyers: We came out winners

 

Patti is right agent to enlist on your behalf. She is extremely knowledgeable of the market and has the experience to deal with all the little bumps that can often do arise is real estate transaction. She made our experience less stressful and with her help, we came out winners.

Anxious Buyer: She calmed me down

 

This was my first time purchasing a property, without Patti, this would have literally not happened. From the beginning she recognized I was with the wrong mortgage loan officer, and suggested someone who's she worked with before. No matter what time of night it was, Patti and her assistants were immediately on top of all emails, documentations, and any questions I had. If she didn’t know the answer she was extremely quick to find it. She calmed me down as I was extremely nervous and anxious throughout the whole process. On the final day I knew I made the right choice going with Patti. I will be recommending her to my friends who are looking, and I highly recommend her to anyone who reads this and is looking for a place in the Marin County/North Bay area.

Sold Our 2nd Home; Knows the target buyer Ruban

 

Having just sold our property in Sausalito I feel compelled to extol the merits of our agent Patti Cohn. Patti's acute understanding of the market place, taking the time to understand our needs, and ability to target potential buyers led to a smooth and fast transaction. She kept us informed throughout the process and immediately responded to all questions we had, leading to a sense of comfort during the sale of our property. If you are looking for a true professional for your real estate needs call Patti you will not be disappointed.

Other Broker couldn't sell it: She made the process fun!

 

From the beginning of the process to the end, Patti made our experience easy and almost fun. She is extremely responsive and brings creativity and imagination beyond what we expected. This made a huge difference. We sold our house (beautiful but in a challenging location) in 7 days!

East Coast Seller: She worked great with the tenant

 

Patti sold our condo for us in Mill Valley. As we live on the East Coast, she handled everything...working with the tenant to get the condo presentable, coordinating showings, and managing everything related to the sale. She did a fabulous job keeping us in the loop and getting it sold quickly!

Sold 12% over asking: Astute + Savvy + Well-liked

 

Not all realtors are created equal - and Patti is a cut above the rest. We wanted to partner with an astute, savvy, and well-liked and respected professional. Patti was just that and more. We expected a lot and she still managed to over-deliver. Our house sold within less than a week and for more than expected. She knows the market and community and she is responsive, thorough, energetic and is easy to work with.

Patti is a SUPER STAR. She did an amazing job of marketing our home. She held one open house and had it sold in less than a week with six offers, all over asking.

Kudos.
