Category Archive The Halpin Client Experience

In their own words…

I believe my commitment to excellence speaks for itself. But don’t just take my word for it, hear what my clients have to say.

So pleased with Patti’s commitment to excellence…

“Patti was unbelievably professional and helpful in selling our home and supporting us every step of the way. She always gave us prompt, valuable feedback from agents showing our home and comments from prospective buyers she worked with. Her follow-up was always insightful and her optimism kept us encouraged without inflated expectations.

She is the only agent in our many relocations who was willing to wait at our home for appointments with contractors when we couldn’t arrange time off from our jobs for some minor repairs after the home inspection. The end-to-end sales process was handled seamlessly and competently.

A short time later when we were ready to buy a vacation condo to keep our connections with St. Pete, Patti scoured the listings and gathered preview information on the most likely matches. She made sure we were aware of condo restrictions and location considerations as we narrowed down our search. After the very smooth closing processes she continues to assist us with recommendations for service and repair contractors.

We are so pleased with Patti’s commitment to excellence that we continue to stay in touch years later as we consider future options. Still today, almost 5 yrs later, she gladly provides us with market updates on request. My husband and I have never dealt with a more service-oriented agent in our many years of relocations across the country.”

From start to finish, Patti had our trust…

“My husband and I researched several realtors in the area before calling Patti Halpin out to our home. Patti had recently sold the house across the street from us; therefore we wanted to hear what she had to say about our home.

When we met with her, we were so totally refreshed by her honesty and her depth of knowledge about the area and real estate in general. She didn’t just tell us what we wanted to hear rather she thoughtfully considered the best plan of attack in selling our home. She also truly listened to what our goals were. We felt that at every moment, she was truly advocating on our behalf, but was also honest with us about what to expect. Patti was dedicated to the sale of our home, and we always felt that she was available to us.

When our home finally sold it did not mean it was the end of our relationship with Patti. It was now time to purchase another home but we wanted to expand our search to other areas Pinellas County. We never considered using another realtor because we knew in our hearts that there was no one we would be able to trust as much as Patti.

She listened to us when we told her what was most important to us in a new home and was adaptable when we made changes in what we were looking for. She helped us search neighborhoods, and again was honest with us about what to expect in this complex real estate market. We put offers on homes that we lost several times, but again we would just pick up where we had left off. Finally, one fateful day we literally found the house of our dreams.

We have been in our new home for almost six months, and at least every other day my husband or I comment to each other how thankful we are to be in this home. It fits our family so well. We feel very appreciative to Patti and all of her hard work from beginning to end. We would happily suggest to anyone else who is considering buying or selling they consider Patti as well.”

Patti was by our side…

“Mike and I were first time home buyers. We were excited to own our first house but also tentative about the many decisions and responsibilities that came along with that decision. However, we believe God paired us with Patti as our real estate agent. It was such a comfort to have Patti by our side as we went down the bumpy road of buying our first home.

Unfortunately, the home we fell in love with had been foreclosed on and had been empty for a couple of years. Due to these issues and a couple other concerns, our home purchase was a long process. There were many times when we were not sure if the house would close. However, we always knew what was happening because Patti kept us informed.

There were opportunities to walk away from the home and we always felt we had Patti’s support not matter what we decided. She wanted what was best for our family just as much as we did. Patti was by our side for months as we waited, dealt with the investor owners and worked out the financing. We did end up purchasing our home and couldn’t be happier.

We consider working with Patti to be a gift and now we call her a friend.”
