Appreciate Your Expertise
Ron & Patti - I can't tell you how much I appreciate your expertise & handling of all my mother's leftover stuff, cleaning the house, selling it, plus all your gentle guidance & wonderful hugs. You made this extremely painful & challenging time in my life easier to handle. With sincere thanks for all you've done to help me.
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!
Ron was great! He provided personal service that was tailored to my needs. He was very flexible when setting up times to see properties. He is extremely knowledgeable of neighborhoods and price points. My home buying process was quick and easy, he did all of the research. I would highly recommend Ron and his colleagues for any home buying venture.
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.
We Felt Comfortable
Patti and Ron, Thanks so much for all your hard work! It was difficult for all of us, being so far away; you really made us all feel comfortable knowing that things were being looked after with an eye to our Mom’s best interests.
Ron was straight-up. Honest.
Unlike some real estate scammers I ran across, one of whom I threatened to sue for fraud, Ron told the truth, found the right buyer from his pool of investors, and accomplished the sale, without headaches or hassles. He was straight-up. Honest. Did everything he said he was going to do. As trustee and one of nine beneficiaries, I needed to sell the Clairemont family home from my own home base in the Bay Area. I had interviewed Ron, who was recommended to me by a trust administrator law firm, before having some prospective purchases go south, including an agent who tried to lower the agreed-upon price substantially once we entered escrow. I cancelled that contract and went back to Ron. Instead of a scam, I got a reliable buyer and a smooth transaction at a fair price.
Beyond The Call
Patti managed both the selling of our prior home and the purchase of our new home. Having worked with Patti in the past we expected nothing but top notch service and we were not disappointed. Patti has a tremendous attention to detail, a positive customer service attitude and is responsive at every turn. She managed the myriad of challenging participants on both the sell and buy side as well as going beyond the call of duty in helping us manage our property when we had already moved.
Helped Complicated Transaction
Patti, we can’t thank you enough for your great work. We recently had the opportunity to work with a realtor in New Jersey and there was zero comparison to what you deliver. You are proactive, communicate regularly, and a pleasure to work with. We can't thank you enough for your help with this complicated transaction! I know we still have a couple things left but If you ever need a reference, we would be glad to speak to any prospective clients!
You're In Goods Hands
Excellent service from Ron Greenwald. You'll feel you're in goods hands with Ron. He always keep you inform of the purchase/sale process. It is a large and high monetary transaction. You'll really want someone that you feel good handling your transaction and representing you. Ron is that guy.
Responsive And Motivated
Ron and Patti are incredibly responsive and motivated to assist their clients. I am an attorney and represented one of their clients who hired them to sell property. They respond to every question and provide detailed options for their clients from listing to close. Ron and Patti are particularly experienced with probate sales and make special effort to keep all sides informed and happy during sales which required court confirmation, which can be complicated.
Singing Our Praises!
I met Ron in 2012 when he helped my aging parents purchase a home for me in Rancho Bernardo so I could assist them. Ron’s honesty, warmth, and communication skills were a big hit with them, and me. After my father passed away in 2013, I renovated the home so my mother could move in with me. I was so impressed by Ron’s genuine kindness – he even attended my dad’s memorial – that when my mother died in 2020 and I decided to sell the house and move to the Denver area, where my son lives, I would not have called anyone but him. Ron and Patti devoted their time and expertise to me; way beyond a typical realtor. They made the process easy, smooth, and stress-free. Since they handled all the details, including coordinating an estate sale, I was able to leave my cares behind and move, knowing Ron would keep me constantly updated, troubleshoot issues, and complete the sale. My mother loved Ron, and so do I. If I could carry a tune, I’d sing his praises!
Smoothly Engineered The Process
Patti and Ron smoothly engineered the process of moving from a single-family home to a high-end senior residential community. We especially valued their expertise during this COVID time of tumult. After interviewing three realtors, we picked them because they offered the most coherent package of services, which appealed to us as seniors who didn’t want to do the move the ‘college way.’ They coordinated service providers and gave valuable input on what repairs and improvements we should do to achieve optimum ROI. We followed their recommendation to hold off putting the home on the market until we moved out, which we did on a Tuesday. Then Patti’s and Ron’s fixing up started 6 weeks later, we’d received 14 offers: all above asking price. Ron and Patti helped us review the offers and negotiated effectively on our behalf. Patti’s fluency with online tools helped a lot. We’re happy in our new locale and happy we chose Greenwald and Gerke.
Seller's And Buyer's Advocate
Patti helped us purchase our first home, in San Ysidro, in 2013. We were so impressed by her ability to focus on our needs that we recommended her without hesitation to friends over the years. Her regular updates kept her in our inbox and in the top of our minds, so when we decided to consider selling our home, which we’d extensively remodeled, in 2020, we thought immediately of her. Patti met with us, candidly noted issues in need of addressing, helped set a realistic price, made sure showings were COVID-safe, and even brought flowers so our house
would look inviting in photos. While in the process of selling, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that Patti could help us find and buy a Temecula-area home with a nice yard perfect for our two children and dog to play in. Patti is both the seller’s and buyer’s best advocate. She is down-to-earth, focused on our needs, and a great communicator. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
Personally Involved In My-Wellbeing
Shortly after my wife and I decided we should sell our home of 60 years and move to an upscale senior residence, she developed cancer. She encouraged me to retain this plan, which I did after she passed away. During this emotional upheaval, I knew I needed help figuring out how to downsize and set up my home for the selling and moving process. After interviewing several realtors, I chose Ron and Patti because they were two experienced in helping seniors downsize. They patiently educated me on what to do and how to do it; providing a great deal of support, which I appreciated. I felt they were personally involved in my well-being; not just as a client but as a person. They held my hand through all the complex processes and paperwork, found a strong buyer, and we sold the house for precisely what they’d estimated it would go for. My dog, Cheyenne, and I are happy in our new place. I’m pursuing watercolor art. Everything went very smoothly, thanks to Ron and Patti.
Top-Notch Project Manager & Realtor
A friend referred Patti to us in 2011 when we bought a home in San Diego, where we lived until relocating to Arizona in 2018. After renting the home for two years, we chose Patti to represent us when we decided to sell. She did a phenomenal job: we did not have to return to San Diego even once! She made some 50 trips to the house, coordinated all repairs, handled everything, suggested virtual marketing efforts, conducted showings adhering to COVID restrictions; she even took out the garbage! In terms of knowledge, competence and, most of all, communication,
as well as caring about clients, Patti is top-notch: a project manager as well as a realtor. We are happy to recommend her.
