Here what Pat has to say "It has been both an honor and a privilege to work with hundreds of families regarding their Real Estate needs. Being one of the top agents in the area, I pride myself in offering my clients a high level of professional yet personalized service. 90% of my business is that of repeat clients or personal referrals. Most people are shocked to find out that I actually have other clients because everyone is made to feel they are the only thing on my agenda. Whether you are buying your very first Condo or a Multi-Million Dollar Estate you can count on the same supreme service and distinctive personal care."

"Pat was great to work with. She was very responsive and made me feel like I was her only client. It was a good experience."
"Pat is the best, I have used her to buy and sell 4 of my personal properties along with my sister's 2. She is well known in the community. I always refer Pat to friends and family. She always has made me feel like I am her only client. She is the greatest"
"...Pat's continuous energy, enthusiasm and support contributed to a timely and efficient transaction..."
"Pat was absolutely the very best Realtor we have ever used. If there was a score higher than "5" Pat would have received it. Her knowledge of Oak Park made the difference plus her helping us find the house that met our expectations was challenging but she never lost focus. She definitely had our best interest in mind. We will miss our daily interactions with Pat!"
"Pat was absolutely the most resourceful agent I could have possibly envisioned, especially considering the unforeseen bumps on the road we came along that she was fully prepared to wrestle into alignment. Simply the best!"
"Thank you very much for all your effort and hard work for helping us selling our condo and buying our house; your extraordinary job is appreciated."
"Very knowledgeable with the local area, very good in the process management of the transaction. Even while on the road, Patricia always managed to return my phone calls or responded to emails in a more than reasonable time. This transaction was pretty clear and obviously I was the one selected and all because of the high level of negotiating skills Patricia has. "
"Very helpful, I will definitely do business with her again. Also I will like to thank the entire staff of the office for their help when I needed."
"We are moving out of state so would not be able to use Pat again. We really enjoyed working with her"
"Thank you so much for everything. We are so happy! I know it was a long tough road and we appreciate all your work and guidance through the process."
"Patricia does everything right."
"If it were practical, Pat would be my real estate agent for life. However, I now live in Georgia and regrettably am not likely to ever see her again.
I typically do not respond to program or people evaluations. It is because I do not believe them to generally be an effective method for determining or judging satisfactory performance. Most of us are average, but we wish to be judged exceptional simply for doing what we are paid to do, i.e., our jobs. In my judgement, one must perform above and beyond standard job performance expectations in order to exceed expectations or to be judged exceptional.
I have purchased and sold 10 homes in my lifetime. Pat's performance measurably exceeded that of any prior agent. On several occasions I would ask Pat about something I thought might be helpful and she would respond that it was already done. When problems arose, Pat did not just inform me of the problem, she also presented a meaningful solution for resolving the problem that adequately and fairly satisfied not just me the seller, but also the buyers.
Baird & Warner is fortunate Pat is their employee and not a competitors for she is without question consummate professional. As I said to her when the transaction was finally completed, words cannot adequately express my appreciation for her efforts in selling my home. She accomplished in 5 months what my prior agent could not accomplish in 18 months. i admire her greatly. She has earned my highest esteem and praise."
"We have worked with Patricia McGowan several times the last few years. She always provided top-notch service."
"Thanks for being a knowledgeable, and ethical Realtor. You saved me time and money"
