Always Honest & Professional
I have worked with Ron and Patti over the past six years and cannot recommend them enough. In addition to working with them to buy my first home, I have worked with Ron and Patti on several transactions through work. In addition to going above and beyond for their clients, Ron and Patti bring a high level of expertise to their work. Real estate is a passion project for these two. It is not about the sale but doing right by their client. Always honest, professional, and a pleasure to work with. They are great realtors and exceptional humans!

Absolute Pleasure To Work With
The team of Patti Gerke and Ron Greenwald were an absolute pleasure to work with. They listened carefully to our Trust's needs and objectives and designed a detailed strategy that fit the specific target market that maximized the value of our property and did so within the unique constraints of a Trust sale. In spite of the huge market fluctuation and disruption of potential buyers due to the pandemic, they were persistent in maintaining our sales goals, adjusting to the situation and coming to the best closure that we could have expected in the circumstances. Our family highly recommends this highly professional, always courteous and respectful team for both a trust and/or multi-residential sale.
