Patrick, a great resource in a challenging market!
I had very specific qualifications when shopping for my new condo, and I was looking at a time when there was very high demand and prices had skyrocketed. Patrick was very good in helping me find the condo that met my qualifications and effectively negotiated a contract that was quick, smooth, and reasonably priced. It was a very pleasurable experience and I feel grateful for Patrick’s support in an otherwise daunting market. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Patrick, a family constant!
Patrick has been our family’s realtor for over twenty five years. Both of my brothers, my daughter, my niece, my wife and I have bought and sold property with him as our realtor.
He’s professional and knowledgeable when it comes to knowing the market trends. I was tasked with taking and settling my mother’s estate which required the selling of my mother’s home as well as a piece of property that was left in her will. He was the person I trusted most to help take care of a sensitive task. Patrick took it upon himself to retrieve all of the information on the property and guided me through the process to help with this matter.
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.
He provides outstanding customer service in addition to his expertise.
I highly recommend him as a realtor.
Helpful, knowledgeable and professional – traits that are essential!
Patrick helped me buy my house 15 years ago. Because of his professionalism then, I used him again this summer and just this week, we closed on the sale of that home. Patrick brought in a stager to help me clear out a few things so that the house would look as large and open as possible. After I had followed those suggestions and worked hard to purge the house of unnecessary things, he brought in the most fabulous photographer so that my house showed beautifully online both in photos and a video.
Wouldn’t you know that right after I decided to put the house on the market, the Covid-19 pandemic took the world by storm! Not to worry, says Patrick, who then provided booties, masks and gloves outside the home for serious buyers to be able to enter. In short order, we had a contract. While that one fell through, it didn’t take long before another contract was signed. This one moved smoothly toward closing until the carpenter bees showed up! We got those dispatched and moved quickly to the closing table.
Patrick is helpful, knowledgeable, professional and keeps his cool when others might not. I highly recommend him to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home. Pick Patrick!
A Dream Begins!
It has been a lifelong dream to design and build a house. Finding a suitable and buildable lot in Richmond was a real challenge. Patrick was patient and determined. When the right lot finally came available he was quick to advise me and make the deal happen….even during a global pandemic!!! I recommend him without hesitation!
Very Excited New Home Buyers
We were given Patrick’s contact from a dear friend of ours to get us started in the Richmond, VA Market. We had heard really great things and were eager to get started. My wife and I truly were lost in the beginning! We both had different needs and wants and a broad range of a budget.
Patrick was able to quickly focus our concerted efforts by narrowing down the homes, one by one, area by area until we settled on the perfect place on the James River. We did not quite know exactly where or what we wanted; single family, town house or condo & in what neck of the woods — Patrick was patient, incredibly generous with his time and provided genuine, honest feedback.
We certainly would not have received the same attention and diligence from a larger agency. His immense experience in the industry was incredibly valuable to us. He immediately gained our trust by laying out his ‘ground rules,’ which gave us the tools, clarity & focus to effectively select the right property to fit our growing family.
We couldn’t be happier with the whole process and the attention he gave to us. You won’t be disappointed — Pick Patrick!
Two Purchases and a Sale
When we first met Patrick we were first time homebuyers, and couldn’t have asked for a more professional, communicative realtor to hold our hand throughout the entire process. We knew next to nothing about the process, and Patrick gave us clear information and answered all our naive questions with patience and utmost kindness. We truly came to believe that he was fighting for us. That home was the most starter of starter homes, but it never felt like Patrick was giving us “starter home” attention. He approached our search and our closing with the same zeal I’m sure he uses for homes with much bigger price tags.
Our second purchase was fast paced with quick negotiating, and Patrick was more than up to the task. He is a huge part of why we were able to land the house we have now, and I don’t know that just any realtor would have been able to pull that off. Pick Patrick!
A Big Thank You
This fall I had the pleasure of working with Patrick McCrerey. He did a fantastic job in pricing and staging my home. To my delight I got an offer on the first day!!
I had many questions and concerns during this time. When I called Patrick for his advise he was patient, kind and answered my questions.
Patrick is fantastic and hard working. I highly recommend him to be your real estate agent.
Thank you Patrick for your outstanding work in selling my property.
Putting your place on the market and not knowing how to go about it creates a great deal of anxiety particularly when you live alone.
My great fortune in the past years has been to know Patrick McCrerey as my realtor. I have used his services first for the purchase and later for the sale of a house and then a few years later, a second purchase and sale of my condo in Richmond, Virginia.
Patrick helped me every step of the way and was able to conclude those transactions in no time. Patrick is an incredible hard worker. He will not rest until you are totally satisfied. I appreciated so much his reassuring calls, encouragements and clear explanations.
I felt totally confident in his abilities to conduct all those transactions while I was away from the country. Patrick is a realist because of his great experience in the business and will not give you false hopes about what you can expect from the transaction as I have seen other realtors do. I appreciate this honesty and how easy it has been for me to follow his advices and be rewarded with great results.
My last move proves it as the condo had been on the market for less than 24 hours when it sold above the list price with multiple offes.
I have recommended Patrick to several friends and all have been extremely grateful to me for giving them his name. I hope many other people will get to know Patrick and benefit from his services. I am grateful.
RVA to FLA
”Pick Patrick” is not just a catchy slogan, it’s a sellers’ must have
My husband and I were ready to take a leap and relocate to Florida! We were first time home sellers and really had no idea what to expect. We contacted Patrick on the recommendation of a trusted family member, and that first step in this process instantly made all the difference for us!
Patrick responded promptly via email, text, and phone throughout our selling journey. From our first meeting to our last email, Patrick provided us with information, explained the steps in the selling process, and helped us understand our options so we could make informed decisions. He also answered our thousands of questions we had along the way!
Patrick was able to utilize his army of resources in order to help us make our sale happen. He went out of his way and re-posted information on his site to advertise our estate sale, he connected us with a professional photographer to take amazing pictures as to hi-light the best features of our house for the listing, he provided us with contact information for a respectable contractor to address items that were contingent on our sale, as well as recommend a lawyer to complete final paperwork to make the sale official. (Most of this process took place while we were already relocated in Florida, and we still felt Patrick’s support long distance!)
We could tell Patrick is passionate about his work in the way he spoke to us, the way he anticipated our needs, the way he kept us updated with each showing, and his persistence in ensuring the steps along the way were moving forward in a timely manner.
We are so thankful Patrick was the one we chose to guide us through the process of selling our house! If our adventures bring us back to RVA, we will certainly be contacting him!
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.
