Elizabeth Patrick is great—from start till past the closing. She is a classy, patient, attentive agent who won’t push you around and will always try to please you with the best house. My wife and I were long skeptical about signing with an agent. We did loads of research, tracked every property that came on the market in two towns, plus neighboring zones, and generally contacted the selling agency for look-sees.
One day we contacted Westwood Metes & Bounds, where Elizabeth has been an agent for a couple of years, and she was sent to show us a fetching house that we passed on mainly because of road noise. She was extremely pleasant, relaxed, professional, and interested in the property and in our views. We had occasion soon thereafter to look at another Westwood property and sought her out. Without ever pressing us, she began to forward us listings we might not have seen.
We started viewing as many as 10 properties in a day with her. Still no signing request from her. We had by then decided that she was our agent, but we really appreciated the lack of pressure. Did I mention that she was always quick to set up appointments, never late, and always pleasant and informative? When we moved to commit to a property, she finally asked us to sign with her, which we happily did.
Then we changed our minds—just before signing a contract. She was pleasant about this and soon sent a listing that I had dismissed for aesthetic and pricing reasons. The price had been slashed, so I drove up to glance at it (I believe in drive-bys, saving everyone trouble), then toured with Elizabeth. We liked a second house more, however, so I looked closely at it for a week, then called off that one, too.
Elizabeth remained extremely pleasant and loyal. Soon we were scheming away with her, making offers on our favorite, getting responses, getting closer to our price. Bingo. After favoring a different bank, I went with the one she recommended (Rondout) and the process was quick indeed. I went with the insurance agent she recommended (Lydia Snow at Centennial) and was rewarded with amazing service and speed.
I think we did the fastest close ever. The people who clean our house were subsequently recommended by Elizabeth, who remains available for friendly advice. Elizabeth is simply the best. Thank you
