Outstanding service is the standard for Pat Smarto and her Lakes Realty team. No matter the simplicity nor the complexity of the transaction , you can expect excellence. In a world where less is less, this team offers you more and delivers more. If you believe most realtors are the same, then you have not worked with Pat.
Ive worked with Pat with a couple of houses and has always been 100% satisfied. Shes always listen to my needs. And has always kept in contact with me throughout the process. And answered all my questions.
Pat Smarto recently sold my Dads luxury home and adjoining guest house. We chose to work with Pat because of her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm of the area, as well as her reputation and the reviews we read about her. She did not disappoint! During this past year in a pandemic, she helped to get us a few offers for us to choose from and we are very happy with the results. I highly recommend Pat and would welcome the chance to work with her again if the need arises.
"Good, honest person. Great to work with. Thank you Pat."
"Pat's personal touch and honesty was CRITICAL in getting this deal done. We really appreciated not just her knowledge of the area but how it applied to our particular situation (which was unusual). She also provided several helpful little nudges to remind me to follow up on certain things, which I greatly appreciated. I would absolutely retain Pat again, and I would certainly recommend her to others."
"We've used Pat several times and she is simply the best. When we sold, she got us our asking price and when we bought she found us the right house in a great neighborhood in the price range we wanted."
"You couldn't ask for a nicer, more understanding, patient, friendly, and more approachable agent than Pat Smarto. Pat went above and beyond when it came to the sale of our home, things that weren't in her control, she still tried to make a difference. Pat is off-the-charts with her promptness when it comes to returning calls, texts, feedback, contracts, and follow-up. EVERYTHING was in a VERY timely matter and went exactly as she said it would. Pat Smarto's knowledge, expertise, and passion make her a true professional in buying and selling waterfront homes. I would definitely recommend Pat. She was my lifesaver, I would have drowned without her!"
