“Kimberly is the consummate professional while also being warm and assuring us that there was virtually no limit to the number of questions we could ask and requests we could make. We are certain that Kimberly’s negotiation skills saved us tens of thousands of dollars and we wholeheartedly recommend her without reservation.””

“Rod Ramsey has been a tremendous resource for me as I look for residential investment properties in Austin TX.  Rod knows the up and coming areas that should benefit from long-term appreciation trends, and he is great at keeping interesting opportunities in front of me as they arise. Rod has lived in Austin a long time and has very intimate knowledge of the market, price trends, and what constitutes a good deal. I highly recommend Rod to others looking for an in-the-know, service oriented broker in Austin…thanks for your great work Rod!”

– Craig Berger Agile Realty Capital  CFA, CPA | Co-Founder

“This is no list and go realtor, this is no order taker/clerk masquerading as a realtor – this is more than a realtor. This is an advocate. When you work with Rod you know you have someone on your side. He’s not just watching your interests – he’s looking farther down the road for the upside and downside than you’ll ever know. I’ve lived in multiple cities and in multiple homes. Rod is the first realtor that I not only want to use again but want to recommend to everyone I know. He’s the only one who I’ve ever felt was truly looking out for me and he’s been 100% right on every call.”

– Dave B.

“I’m the type of person that asks a lot of questions, usually hard questions, and Rod was not only quick to respond he went the extra mile to make sure I understood the facts and was able to make sound decisions. His depth of market knowledge and trends helped me make the right investment. I plan to work with him again!”

– Jennifer M.

“I have had multiple occasions to work with Rod Ramsey in searching for a new home, and due to my shifting lifestyle of taking care of my aging parents, I have not purchased a home yet, as my needs in a home have changed repeatedly. Throughout my false-starts in buying a home, Rod has put in time and effort above and beyond what I would expect of a realtor. His agility and quick responsiveness have always gotten me the information I needed to make good decisions for me and my family. His diligence in chasing down the answers to my questions shows that he truly cares for his clients, even the ones that may or may not pan out. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy a home in Austin.”

– Shannen N.

“Patty has been nothing short of amazing as a Realtor. She listened to what I wanted and worked well with my very full schedule. She explained everything to me in terms that I understood so that I could make more informed decisions about my house. Purchasing a home can be an incredibly stressful situation, especially for first time buyers. Patty has helped make my huge transition to homeowner as smooth as possible and I would definitely work with her again or recommend her to anyone looking for a house.”

– Julie Seay

“Rod is the best!!!  He makes the home buying process fun and easy. His knowledge of up and coming areas to live in is amazing. I would recommend Rod to anyone who wants a great home buying experience.

– Mark Abernathy, Capstar Lending Residential Mortgage Loan Officer

“In the last six years, we’ve gone from first-time home buyers to living in a dream home that we would have never considered possible and we have Kimberly to thank for it. From our first meeting, she was a friend first and real estate professional second, always putting our personal needs as the top priority. Add in her amazing knowledge of the little details that make a big difference when you’re thinking about where to live, and we feel remarkably fortunate to have found Kimberly. We now routinely recommend her to any and all friends considering buying a home in Austin with the utmost confidence!”

-Kyle and Jamie B.

“Patty was a fantastic agent! I’ve used her to both buy and sell my house and had amazing outcomes on both ends of the house lifecycle. She was personable, knowledgeable, and creative in a very pragmatic and results-driven way. I only wish I still lived in Austin so that I could use her for all my real estate deals.”

– Carol Dunn

“Rod is always great to work with. Always looking out for his client’s interest in getting the best deal possible, and he knows how to work well with other realtors, which is so important. I highly recommend him.”

– Tom L.

“Patty is a true professional. She is highly knowledgeable about the real estate industry here in Austin, and in particular, Green real estate. She helped us find our first rental here from out of town, kept us informed at every step of the rental process and helped us make a smooth transition from Pennsylvanian’s to Texan’s. She also helped us purchase our first home here in Austin. I would recommend Patty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is honest and works hard for her clients!”

– Joan Bell

“If you want to sell your house with the help of a superb communicator and guide, it’s very easy for me to recommend Patricia! She helped me work through my house sale — even with major complications from the seller (that would be me) and the mortgage company and the buyer. I’m so lucky I had her as my navigator! Somehow, she dealt with all the minutiae with ease, great information, and a sense of humor. She also knew how to get ME moving forward to get the house sold quickly.”

– Katie Raver

“Patricia helped us find a house that was perfect for us. She let us lead where we wanted, and when we needed any thing from her she was always there for us. I recommend her without hesitation, you will enjoy working with her.”

– Pat Wheaton

“Rod Ramsey is helpful, knowledgeable and made the process of selling my home and buying a new one so much less painful!”

– Genevieve S.

“Recently worked with Patricia on a property purchase in the Austin area. She and her team provided excellent service throughout the full spectrum of the property-search -> contract negotiation -> final closing. Patricia combines integrity, professionalism, and amicability fused with a deep knowledge of her industry and the Austin market.”

– John Giammanco

“I’ve bought and sold several properties in my life and I can vouch for the fact that Patricia Sylvana from E3 Properties is by far the best and most pleasant realtor I have ever worked with. I had to sell my house while I was out of the country and Patricia did an excellent job with all aspects of the job and she went way beyond the call of duty. She acted promptly, thoroughly and accurately when estimating the property value, dealing with tenants, handling repairs, beautifying the house and the yard, timing the listing and giving me excellent advice along the way. The photographs she had taken for the listing were absolutely spectacular. It was because of the quality of Patricia’s work that my house had 4 potential buyers within 10 days of the listing and was sold within a month. Patricia’s respectful and friendly approach to dealing with everyone involved makes it a real pleasure to work with her. She is clearly knowledgeable, experienced and efficient plus she has excellent people skills. I highly recommend Patricia for all your realty needs!”

– Geerte Frenken, M.F.A

“Patty has now seen me through three home transactions and I can’t imagine working with anyone better. I work in the title side of the real estate industry, but the listing/selling side of real estate was mysterious to me when we began. She was my agent while buying my first home, and since we were in an extremely competitive housing market, this meant acting quickly and decisively. When we finally got a contract on the house, there ended up being major legal issues that turned nightmarish, but Patty was there every time making sure that nothing slipped through the cracks, and after a lot of time and hard work, we got my house! A few years later, I downsized and bought a condo from a friend, and she worked diligently with both me and the seller, which can be tricky for a realtor but Patty handled it with ease and made it the smoothest transaction possible. Then it was time to sell my house, and that’s when I saw her incredible listing skills, which is a very different ballgame from representing a buyer. She did a complete tour of my house, gave me detailed notes on every square inch and how I could improve the place to maximize my profits, laid out her proven marketing plan, and provided excellent recommendations for home services like landscaping and painting to bring my home up to date. She was always there whenever I had a concern, and she rescued me several times when I was in a crisis, always positive, patient, and confident. In the end, her incredible efforts landed me not only what I listed the house for with multiple offers in the first 24 hours, but it ended up selling for close to $10,000 more than I thought it would sell for. Patty is a consummate professional with a stellar network of contacts, rockstar customer service, and amazing industry knowledge and instincts. She’s my realtor for life! :-)”

– Cassandra Majors

“There are many realtors working in Austin but the second I chose Patty, I knew I made the right decision. Patty knows how to strike the perfect balance. She was a great listener and honored my wishes but wasn’t afraid to push back with ideas she knew I’d benefit from. She goes the extra mile and even went out of her way to purchase bedding and props she knew would positively influence the marketing photos. No matter what the field, there’s comfort created when you’re dealing with someone truly experienced. Patty’s vast knowledge of the Austin market allowed us to maximize the sales price and her ability to anticipate how the sale would progress was nothing short of impressive…she was spot on every step of the way. Patty was always punctual for our meetings and when she wasn’t available to pick up my call, she’d either return the call quickly or text me letting me know when she’d be free. In a time when it seems like many sales people will do almost anything to close a sale, I was left knowing that Patty’s and her profession’s code of ethics were never compromised. She’s the consummate professional who truly cares about her clients and her business practices treat both parties on opposite sides of the table with the utmost respect. Anyone would be lucky to have Patty on their team.”

“When my husband and I were ready to purchase our first home, we knew that we did not want a typical real estate agent or even a typical home. Other agents had shown us very cookie-cutter houses in far-flung suburbs where the emphasis was on square footage and upgrades. Melanie heard us when we talked about our priorities and was realistic about what we could find within our price range.

Melanie was very patient with us, knowing that we were in no hurry and would wait to find the *right* house. One day she called to say she had found a great place that she thought would be a really good fit for us. As soon as we walked inside, I knew we had found our very first home!

As exciting as that moment was, we still had to navigate the unfamiliar territory of bidding and closing. Melanie was with us the whole time, making recommendations and ensuring that the paperwork was all in order. We have lived in our house now for three years, and it truly suits us. Thanks so much, Melanie!”

“Patty has high integrity and has detailed knowledge of the ins and outs of getting the best deal for her clients.

– Kathy Schoemer

“Patricia helped me and my wife purchase our first home and we couldn’t be happier with the results. She helped us win a multiple offer situation, even though we were told that other offers came in at a higher price than ours. Then she helped us navigate a complex transaction where we purchased a duplex and converted it into two condos. Despite our unusual requests Patricia kept her cool, always found out exactly what we needed to know and made sure everything worked out in our favor. Today we have a lot of equity in that property.

– Carlos Andrés Reina

“Patricia was patient through the process of finding us a place that really matched what we wanting. After everything, we slid in on a deal that we’re still ecstatic over and never had any hitches along the way. She’s not hesitant to get leads that may require some creativity to see the value in, which is great for buyers like ourselves. Not only were we able to find a great place, but she was able to negotiate some fantastic perks into the deal that made signing the line well worth it. Her connections with trusted inspectors and other industry professionals is also invaluable.

“My husband and I bought a motorhome and started full-timing in it in June of 2011. At that time, we hired Patty to sell our house, then we left town a few days later. I’ve worked with Patty before through volunteer events, so I knew we were in good hands.

Patty staged the house and had a great photographer take pictures. She ran the comps that we’d be competing with and took us to see those houses. This helped us come up with a reasonable price. Her marketing materials on the sign were constantly being refilled, which we noticed did not happen with many of the other listings in the neighborhood.

Patty was with us every step of the way. Even with all of the competition in our neighborhood, our house had a lot of activity. We got a cash offer on the house after only a short time on the market. While we were traveling, we never felt too far away as she updated us at each turn. She handled everything with ease, including setting us up with a mobile notary in a rural Nevada town to sign closing papers.

If we purchase a home in the Austin area again, Patty will be the first one I call. She’s smart, creative and she will tell you like it is. As a former Realtor myself, I appreciate those qualities. Keep up the good work Patty!

– Jen Conway

“Patricia is an amazing Real Estate agent. She not only did the things you would expect like walking us through evaluating, staging, and selling our home, but she went the extra mile to find out what we needed for the experience to be a GREAT one for us.

Patricia (gently) managed our tasks to keep us on track and save us money. And best of all she used her extensive experience in the Central Texas market to list and sell our house in just a few days even though others in our neighborhood had been on the market for quite a while.

I wholeheartedly recommend her and all aspects of her work. If you need a diligent and successful person on your side when you sell or buy a home, you will be really happy with Patricia. I certainly was.

– Keith Fail

“Patricia Sylvana is a rarity in today’s world. We had the opportunity to work with Patricia on more than one occasion as our agent, first when looking for a home to lease and then to find a property to purchase. Her professionalism, responsiveness, depth of knowledge, and care and understanding when listening to our requirements and hopes was beyond any that we’ve had the opportunity to encounter in Real Estate before. She truly looks out for her clients and makes both the rental and home buying experience an easy and enjoyable one. I can’t recommend her services highly enough.
