Review From Clients

  • "During negotiations, she was always firm yet reasonable" Last Thanksgiving, my mother decided it was time to sell our home in Newport Coast and move to a retirement community. We were both a little skeptical about selling a home at holiday time and during a depressed real estate market, but after talking to Patty Lance we felt confident to move forward. Patty did her research and came up with a fair and accurate value of the property. The listing posted on a Friday, and in less than five days we had three offers – two of which were full price. Shortly after we accepted an offer, the buyers wanted to switch to an all-cash offer and speed up the escrow to close in twenty days. Through it all, Patty was professional, thorough, energetic and efficient. She was always readily available by phone or email to answer questions with the utmost of patience. With every step we had confidence in Patty’s ability to handle whatever came her way. During negotiations, she was always firm yet reasonable, deftly handling situations with the buyer that had the potential to erupt into disputes. I would not hesitate to call Patty again for future real estate needs and would highly recommend her to others.

  • Patty Lance recently represented me in the sale of 2315 Port Lewrick in Newport Beach, California. Without any hesitation I recommend her highly as a real estate agent. Her hands on approach guided me in updating the property and preparing it for sale. She was consistently available and aggressive in showing the house. Patty screened multiple offers and chose the one that was the most sound and followed it through to closing. She was proactive ensuring the buyers lived up to their obligations. Patty was active in overseeing the escrow and helping me fill out all the forms correctly and in a timely fashion. Patty is a tiger and knows how to get things done. Wow! wish all agents were this efficient! John Miller M.D.

  • The purpose of this letter is to recommend Ms. Patty Lance, of Coldwell Banker, in representing your interest, either as a buyer or seller in any real estate transactions you may be anticipating. Her multi-faceted skills in accounting, real estate law, and knowledge of property values in respective areas, uniquely qualify her in representing your interests. Patty has represented our interest, over the past 5 years with skills we had not previously experienced from others in her profession. She brings to the table negotiating skills, creative terms and conditions with her background skills in such a way as to achieve surprising results. We have always appreciated that she personally has handled aspects of the transactions and phone calls not relying on associate/assistant involvements. She personally stays with you from inception to move-in and always with the follow up of “after-closing’ details that always seem to pop up. We are pleased to be able to offer assessment.

  • "She is warm, funny and extremely knowledgeable broker" Patty Lance is the Best! She always puts her client’s best interests first. For example, at the beginning of last year when the market declining, she advised me to take our home in Emerald Bay off the market until the market recovered. Also, her advice and recommendations regarding the home we were in escrow to purchase on the sale of the Emerald Bay home was spot on. I am a very experienced and I believe very knowledgeable real estate investor and developer and I have never worked with a residential broker that I have enjoyed or trusted more.
