Not once — But twice!
Patrick assisted me with selling my deceased mother’s condominium. I was unsure what to expect with the housing market, but Patrick was optimistic from the first minute.
His positivity was impressive. He actually ended up selling it twice. The first sale fell through due to a buyer problem. But Patrick rolled up his sleeves and was determined to get it done.
Within a week, he received a second contract from a new buyer and the sale went through smoothly.
Patrick is dedicated, positive and tenacious, and these all showed throughout the process. He kept me informed along the way but worked mostly behind the scenes.
Patrick is not only my realtor, but also my friend.
First Time Home-Buyer Impressed – Patrick travels to meet clients’ needs
As my wife and I navigated the journey of our first home purchase in Northern Virginia, Patrick was amazing from start to finish. To start, Patrick connected us with a knowledgeable and trustworthy mortgage broker and provided us with the tools to define a reasonable budget. With a maximum price point and a means to get there secured, we were off house hunting. Although we thought we had clearly defined our ‘must have list’, we had not. Patrick tirelessly showed us properties as our needs and wants continued to evolved. With Patrick’s decades of experience, he was able to help identify our true requirements and tailor the journey to ensure we obtained the best value in the optimal location. To close the journey, he walked with us step by step through escrow, inspection, and closing. His experience and patience far exceeded our expectations and made for a fantastic first time home buying experience. Highly recommend.
Unique Purchase — smooth transaction!
Patrick is an incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and responsive realtor. I recently made a unique purchase and Patrick helped me every step of the way. There were many unknowns for me and Patrick’s real estate knowledge made this process much smoother. Being as this was a new venture for me, I had a TON of questions on a weekly basis. Patrick never made me feel like I was bothering him and was incredibly kind and patient in timely responding to all of my questions. I would strongly recommend Patrick to anyone looking for a realtor in the future.
Long Distance Purchase, the easy way!
Patrick was fantastic and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I moved from out of town to Richmond and Patrick made all the extra difficulties of a long distance purchase and closing seem easy. He worked with sellers to arrange showings around my availability to get to town, and took care of obtaining documents requested from my lender so I didn’t have to make extra trips before I moved for good. He also explained the process every step of the way, answered all my questions, and checked in to make sure I wasn’t drowning in the buying and selling process. If I ever buy or sell another property, I will definitely be calling Patrick. Thanks again Patrick!!
Unique Properties need an experienced REALTOR
Selling unique properties has many challenges. Finding not only the right REALTOR to market my home but finding the one that I could share a positive working relationship proved to be a task I had not been prepared to experience. After 3 or 4 unsuccessful agents attempting to sell my lake house, a life long friend, also a REALTOR, recommended Patrick McCrerey. What a patient, knowledgeable and thorough agent! Showings increased significantly through his quality marketing efforts which included having my home in several large MLS Systems. Even though we had several bumps in the road with two contracts that failed to make it to closing, our third offer was the perfect one! Patrick guided me through the difficult paths of this journey with skill and patience and without a doubt I highly recommend him!
New to RVA
Patrick is a tremendous Realtor, always on top of the details, anticipating our needs and wants and he is patient. Patrick took time to read our contracts, talked to the Title Company, talked to the lender, negotiated with the seller’s agent and texted ideas, options and other listings to us in the year long process we went through to find the perfect place in Church Hill. When there was an unanticipated hick-up in the process with the vendor, Patrick had already reached out to the seller’s agent and had a solution in place. Knowing our needs and wants – he made the entire experience one that we hope to repeat again down the road with him.
Being new to Richmond, we are glad to be able to call Patrick not only our realtor but a Friend!
Experience + Energy = Patrick McCrerey
With Patrick, everything is always moving forward spurred by his energy and optimism. Any impediment to this forward motion is overcome by his vast experience in real estate.
My journey with Patrick went very swiftly. With in two weeks of our meeting, I sat with contract in hand for my house. Patrick was close at hand to steer me through the next several weeks to a successful closing. I know of no other guide I might want to accompany me in the selling of my house.
Navigate, Assist and Refer
Patrick was an excellent realtor, and helped me navigate the real estate market as a first time home shopper! He was knowledgeable, professional, and very honest throughout the process. He was committed to helping me find the RIGHT home for my budget and circumstances, and made sure I took all factors into consideration when looking at each property. His online portal made it quick and easy to find homes that fit my criteria, and he was patient throughout the entire process. Finally, he had strong relationships with highly rated service professionals which made addressing issues at closing a breeze. I highly recommend Patrick for his professionalism, commitment to his customers, and friendliness!
Knowledgeable, patient and caring
We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to work with than Patrick McCrery. Patrick helped us to buy a house and then to sell a house. Both times he was a very knowledgeable realtor, patient, and caring. Issues easily became non-issues with his help, and each time the closing happened as scheduled. We would highly recommend Patrick to anyone in need of a realtor.
Move from Georgia made easy …..
I was very fortunate to have Patrick as my realtor. Moving from out of state is always challenging. But, Patrick made it easy. He was knowledgeable about the area and the current market, a strong negotiator, great communicator, helpful from the beginning through closing and after. He provides outstanding customer service in addition to his expertise. I highly recommend him as a realtor.
Patience Yields High Rewards
What a difference the right Realtor makes! When an unexpected career opportunity meant moving our family from Virginia Beach to Richmond, I contacted Patrick McCrerey right away. Having worked together on the successful and stress-free listing and sale of my mother’s Bon Air home several years ago, I knew Patrick would make the search for our new home a pleasant and positive experience, and boy, was I right!
Drawing on his extensive knowledge of the Richmond neighborhoods and surrounding counties, Patrick provided input that was instrumental in helping us narrow our search to areas which offered the acreage and amenities we wanted in our new community. Identifying and prioritizing our wants and needs in a home was equally important, and it was here that Patrick’s integration of sophisticated, user-friendly real estate technology gave us a distinct advantage in a competitive market. Through the search portal that Patrick set up and continually revised and refined for us, my husband and I were able to view and discuss properties as soon as they listed despite the fact that we were living in two different cities for several months of our search.
Thanks to Patrick’s portal, patience, and cheerful willingness to travel for showings, we found our dream property, and relying on his experience and market knowledge, successfully negotiated a contract crafted to alleviate the potential for competing offers. Serving as a resource as well as a Realtor, Patrick then assisted us with referrals to closing agents and other professionals relevant to the transaction. When a last-minute issue on the listing side required an escrow of funds that would extend past closing, Patrick provided us with a superior level of representation that exceeded expectations and extended past the closing date until the issue was resolved to our satisfaction.
Each evening as I sit on the porch of our quiet country home, I am grateful for the welcoming spirit and tireless efforts of Patrick McCrerey. From phone calls and portals to reassurance and representation, Patrick exemplifies a positive, professional Realtor, and I recommend him without reservation. To enjoy your next real estate transaction, give Patrick a call. You’ll be glad you did.
Patrick was great to work with during a tough market for buyers. He spent time with me to help me focus my search, always did his homework, and provided objective advice when I needed it most. Most importantly, he was always accessible and incredibly responsive. I can’t recommend him strongly enough.
Patrick is always positively present. There is never a doubt that he will be available, responsive and helpful. It is a most comfortable feeling knowing that your colleague is on point and an advocate for success.
Chris Lester, Southern Trust Mortgage
This past Spring 2016 Patrick assisted with our exploration of moving to Lake Anna from Fishersville, VA. We have never had a more professional and knowledgeable real estate agent/broker. He worked tirelessly to arrange showings when we came to town. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is super!
Jim and Ellen Eiland
Patrick made my house search a very relaxed experience. He was very willing to take me to see houses in all directions as I was looking for property with some acreage and I felt he was very knowledgeable about the available properties and whether they would meet my requirements or not, which fact I much appreciated I would certainly ask for his help again in the future.
My wife and I decided to move to VA to be closer to my son and his family. We lived in northern New Jersey our entire lives. Finding Patrick as our realtor was the best and most important decision we made. He not only cares about finding you a home to buy, he cares about finding you the right home to buy. He’s well organized, patient, and responds to ALL questions you may have about the area. It’s been over four months since our move and if a question comes up, guess who I ask? He always delivers. Good guy, great friend!!!
Donna and John Quimby
We got really lucky when we found Patrick McCrerey, he is like no other Realtor we have ever met. He is extremely professional and responsive. He has a very calm demeanor and takes care of all issues immediately. I can tell you to hire him you will not be disappointed. and he’s fun too.
John and Debra McDougall
Patrick’s tireless efforts and attention to details led my wife and I to purchase a home that suited our needs and budget. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.
Patrick helped my brothers and me sell our deceased parent’s home – a tough assignment, since the real estate market was tanking and we were all out of town. He kept us in the loop and worked diligently to conclude the sale. I appreciate his persistence and professionalism.
I worked with Patrick in January 2008, to design a brochure to sell a beautiful, unique property in Chesterfield. It was great working with Patrick, he truly demonstrated what it is to be a steward of his clients interests.
He taught me a thing or two about world class customer service!
