Home Seller and Buyer
Pat has helped me sell not 1, not 2 but 3 houses. 2 of the houses were part of an estate and the third house was my personal house.
One of the houses required extensive updating and Pat was instrumental in her recommendations of what styles were current and the best places to find them. As a result of her guidance we we able to do all the upgrades and still make a good profit.
The second house was almost 100 years old and was sold just as the housing market was crashing in our area but Pat stayed steady through the whole process and kept me steady and we sold it as well.
Selling our house was the perfect move as the market was prime for us as sellers. Pat helped us get it ready to sell and also helped us find our new "dream" home.
Pat's advice has always been easy to understand, offered as advice that I could accept or not, and was always right on the mark.
I have recommended her to many of my friends and family and will continue to do so.

1. Preparation of home: Pat was willing to discuss six month prior to sale. She walked our home and suggested minor changes to make it ready for market.
2. Vendor selection: She offered vendors for home inspection, termite inspection and house cleaning. They were thorough, professional and courteous.
3. Follow-Up: Pat was spot on and organized with follow up on time frames/lines and expectations. She was very helpful to inexperienced buyer's agent to keep the escrow moving smoothly.
4. Marketing: She is a "team" player, allowing us to modify sales price and house description. She also had to adjust our listing date when we need just "one more week" to get it ready for sale.
5. Knowledge: Pat's knowledge of local real estate market was invaluable before, during negotiations and through closing of escrow. She knew when to be firm and when to be flexible.
6. Last, but not least: Pat escorted us during every step of the selling of our home and listened to us with our concerns with the purchase of our new home in a different market. She patiently described what we were signing and how it affected us from accepting an offer through close of escrow. She also pointed out important issues we would need to know as "buyers" when we moved.
She kept us informed through email and phone calls, and meet with us whenever we needed extra counseling. She listened to our personal goals and needs and was able to negotiate a desirable outcome to make our transition a smooth one.
Pat Chadwell is an excellent real estate broker and a lovely person. We appreciate her expertise and friendship.
Pat worked closly with us on the sale of our condo. Her marketing skills and knowledge of real estate resulted in an expediant sale at fair market value
After the close of escrow, Pat helped us with mail forwarding and the exchange of condo keys. Her genuine concern for our overall well being was very comforting to us.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, we both give her a 10+. Pat has our appreciation.

She knew which repairs and improvements were needed to make the home "turn key ready," and she had the experienced crews to accomplish these tasks. Every step of the way, Pat and I were partners in this endeavor. It had been 24 years since I sold a home! So much had changed! Pat answered all my questions, and helped with so many resources.
Selling a home can be stressful, but Pat made the process manageable and even at times fun! I live 90 minutes away. Pat handled so many details for me. She set me up with DocuSign, so that trips to San Jose to sign paperwork weren't needed.
Pat's knowledge of the real estate market is unparalleled. She is tech-savvy, yet maintains the personal touch and kept me fully informed all the way. Pat is respected by her fellow Realtors. I appreciate that she is also a Broker. Her clients know that she has their best interests foremost.
I would definitely buy or sell another home with Pat. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, efficient, personable, and caring Realtor.
Choose Pat; you will be glad you did!

A year later, and we went on an exhaustive search of almost a dozen properties. I found one I instantly fell in love with. Pat not only helped by analytically comparing properties, but once she knew this was the one, she worked tirelessly to ensure I was successful. On a side note, I learned I was in a competitive bid situation. I reached out to Pat asking if I should increase my offer. Pat suggested against increasing my offer which may have saved me thousands of dollars. Through it all, Pat was always responding almost instantly, and was always available for anything I needed. BTW, I remain in touch with Pat today. I now consider Pat a great friend.
I will recommend to all of my friends who are in a property search to work with Pat. She is reliable, on time, organized, and like a pit bull when getting things done.
We would highly recommend Pat Chadwell to anyone looking for a Realtor to help them through the sale process.

Her experience was invaluable in helping prepare the property. Every one of her recommended contacts for repairs and last minute fix ups was competent, professional and timely.
Pat made the whole process smooth and easy especially considering that i was out of the area for a month starting the day of the open house. Everything was taken care of while I was 2000 miles away. My highest recommendation!

said to my husband, "If we ever sell our house, I want to have her as our realtor." Well the
time arrived this year when we made that decision. We looked up Pat Chadwell and she
listed and sold our house in 10 days. Her marketing skills were very impressive and her
dealings with us were sensitive and professional. She kept us updated on every step of
the transaction, making sure that we we're comfortable with what was being done. She is
not only a superb realtor, but she is also a person you would be delighted to call your friend.
I would recommend her, without hesitation, to anyone who is considering selling their home.
We would definitely use her again and would recommend her to friends and family who decide to sell or buy a home.
I would and will recommend Pat - without any hesitation - for any future real estate activity
Home owner and investor
During the contract phase whe was upfront about concerns that she had and worked with us to resolve any concerns that we had.
We found Pat Chadwell through the Realtor.com website and selected her from numerous candidates based on accreditation, a history of successful transactions, and most importantly, personal interviews. What differentiated Pat immediately was her attention to detail and knowledge of all aspects and phases of the listing & selling process.
Pat also quickly differentiated herself by highlighting the positive and marketable aspects of our particular property. She is very responsive, and does an excellent job of "project managing" to keep the listing and sale on track. Also importantly, Pat works well with other agents and mortgage loan representatives, which is critical to smoothing the inevitable bumps in the road after a contract is signed.
Our property sold quickly and within 1% of our aggressive asking price. It sold for more than our initial target price. We strongly recommend Pat Chadwell.
Pat also helped us find our next home and showed us many alternatives until we had a good fit. She handle the paperwork and brought us a good resource for the house inspection report that pointed out a number of issues and flaws that needed to be dealt with the previous owners and their broker.
We were very happy with Pat for both our sale and purchase, and would work with her any time again and recommend her to all our friends. In fact, that is how we found Pat in the first place - a recommendation from our own friends when she handled their house sale.

My husband and I purchased our first home together in 2013 and we are still happy with our home. She made what we thought was a daunting task into one of the smoothest and painless transactions I have ever been a part of. She kept is well informed throughout the entire process beginning to end.
I prefer working with people I genuinely like... and from the first meeting, I genuinely liked Pat! Stand up woman and you can tell right away that it's not about the money. It's about helping people and establishing strong relationships. Both of which Pat is extremely good at.
As long as Pat is in this industry, you'll be in great hands. I highly recommend having Pat as your realtor, you'll won't regret it!
Recently we got divorced, and had to sell our Condo; once again Pat was available to help us out during this difficult time. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs!

Purchasing a house would be the most important invest in our life, so it is important you get professional service, professional advice that not only protect you, but also saves your money and time in many aspects.
After we bought the house, we still get various helps from her; a few years passed, we still keep contact and become friends. Thank you always Pat. You are the best.
Pat is real pro. She found the exact right property for me at the right price in a very aggressive real estate market. She knows the real estate business inside and out, and she really cares about her clients.
She clearly loves what she does, and makes it very fun during the search as she has a great sense of humor.
I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You'll be in good hands.

Just want to give a big shout out to Pat Chadwell and let everyone know what a great job she did helping us sell our home in Santa Clara, and purchasing our new home in Clovis. She did an excellent job on being available and being prepared for any questions we had, every step of the way. She was there for us at each signing, and gave us information and documents to sign immediately. There were no surprises along the way. Pat was very understanding of the real estate market in our area, and had us and our home prepared well in advance of our Open House. Pat's kindness, compassion, and understanding make her an excellent Real Estate Professional. We just can't say enough about how she made this process pleasant and as stress free as possible.

There are not enough words that I can say as to how fantastic Pat Chadwell is! Pat helped us find our perfect dream home. On the road to finding that home, she was always available to us when we needed information, disclosure reports, or setting up showings. She made us feel very important and worked quickly in this crazy Bay Area market. She was there for us at every step of the buying process from looking over the disclosure reports, to working on putting in the offer during a holiday weekend, to even coming to Title when we signed off on docs. Every step of the way she was there and I will never use another realtor in the Bay Area other then Pat Chadwell.

Pat is amazing. We don't live in Silicon Valley but owned property there. When we were looking for information on the market value we remembered getting a postcard from Pat and thought we'd call to inquire with her. Nothing more came out of it at the time but Pat gently continued to keep in touch. Periodically, we'd get an email, postcard or text. She never rushed or pushed. Finally, we decided to sell the property and remembered this woman who basically kept in touch with us over the course of about a year. She explained to us in great detail the situation with the market, how the sale would happen and timing of everything. We literally went on vacation. Pat called to let us know the house was on the market. We didn't worry about a THING and the house sold in a week with multiple offers. It was the most stress free transaction we had ever dealt with all because of Pat's superior knowledge, relationships within her industry, people skills and professional demeanor. Even though we no longer have ties to Silicon Valley we have remained friends.

I would definitely recommend Pat as either sellers or buyers agent. I interviewed 3 potential agents when I was ready to sell my house in Willow Glen and was impressed with Pat's professional approach and knowledge about the market. Pat was well organized and quickly setting up all vendors to help me prepare for the sell. Throughout the process from sells agreement to closing the deal, Pat was extremely efficient in ordering all the required documents and followed through timely for all the signatures etc. which are the key for our smooth transaction.

We selected Pat Chadwell to represent us on the sale of our condo in Sunnyvale. After 23 years of living there with no sinificant maintenance or upgrades, Pat had her hands full preparing the condo for sale.

When the wheels start turning for a home sale or purchase, things can get very busy, and Pat was our rock throughout the process. She’s calm, and clear, and was quick to share her valuable knowledge and insights. She really listened to our needs and helped us navigate the many moving parts of our buying and selling.

We have known and worked with Pat for many years. She tirelessly showed us many properties, in several areas to help us find a home that met our criteria and a price we could afford. Her knowledge of the market in our area helped us tremendously. When we made the decision to sell and buy another home, Pat meticulously stepped us through the process. She was always quick to respond, answer questions and communication throughout the entire process was seamless. With her years of experience of Silicon Valley real estate and her patience, she calmly guided us through a usually stressful process. She is extremely knowledgable, is well established in the real estate market and attends weekly marketing meetings. During our selling process, we were extremely impressed with her marketing skills and her creativity in promoting our home. She created a beautiful flier, sent out postcards, created a website and set up a special twilight photo session of our home. Pat also created a detailed checklist to keep our selling and purchasing process on track. While purchasing our new home, Pat continued her skills of communication, negotiation and attention to detail. She kept our sale on track with her timeliness and helped us get into our new home easily. Pat is a realtor we can recommend with confidence. We are very grateful for Pat's patience and professionalism with our family. She helped us get into the neighborhood and home we have always dreamt of!

Pat makes entire buying or selling process easy, smooth and piece of mind. This is the second time we have worked with Pat. Pat helped us with buying and selling our house. It was very smooth. She is very organized. She is a master of real estate process and has great knowledge about real estate process and market valuation. She explains the process clearly, follows every step of it, does very diligent market search, and provides detailed information to make informed decision. She is always on-time. Our house needed some repair, she took care of those repairs, she found vendors for us, she followed-up with vendors to make sure house was ready for sale on time. She did good marketing and created many inbound ask before the house was in the market. Sales process could be very time-consuming/challenging for the seller. Pat took work off of our time. We highly recommend her for your real estate agent.

In some respects - having lived there for 53 years - selling the house was quite an undertaking. Pat made herself available and never appeared to be to busy to answer my questions - she always returned my calls/e-mails and had a consistently great attitude. She made valid suggestions concerning the preparation of the house for sale. I had relocated out of state and Pat had the paperwork arranged so that it could be signed without my having to be present in California. The sale of the house went smoothly thanks to her consistent professional approach to her craft.
