Patrick knows the market, knows what buyers want, knows how to present a property in the best light. He's not an in-your-face kind of realtor--he lets you know options, and lets you decide. He does not pressure you, and he respects your opinions while also letting you know if some assumptions, or wishes, that you have are tenable.
I have bought or sold with Patrick five times, over 19 years. My only regret is I've now moved out of the area so if and when I move again I won't be able to have him handle that sale.

Patrick was proactive, communicative, patient and provided sound advice. Best realtor I have ever worked with.

If we could give more than 5 stars, we would. Patrick was the best realtor we've ever worked with, and we've used some good ones. He was knowledgeable of the area we were selling in, supportive and communicative (especially when we had some one-off questions at odd times) and was a true partner in the process. He listened to us regarding our needs and was even-keeled when a couple hiccups on our end came into the process early on. He responded to email and text within 24 hours, often within minutes (text) or a few hours (email). He anticipated and was proactive on items, gave us suggestions but was not overbearing. The process ran extremely smoothly. We would use him again in a heartbeat.

Patrick Carmichael sold my condo for me in Redwood Shores. Now more than 14 years later, he represented my parents as they were looking to purchase a condo in Redwood Shores and move closer to me.

Not only is Patrick knowledgeable about Redwood Shores, he knows the history of the area and each development. How it was built, etc.

Patrick takes the time to listen to the type of home you are looking for and assists in meeting those needs. He is extremely responsive and guides through each step of either the buying or selling process. He makes suggestions based on his experience and knowledge to help you either sell at top dollar or negotiate through a buy.

I highly recommend Patrick. I have worked with several Real Estate Brokers in Redwood Shores and Patrick is the most diligent, letting you know each step of the process; ultra responsive to any and all questions, and caring to make sure you are satisfied.

I look forward to working with Patrick again, when I’m ready to either buy or sell in Redwood Shores.

I can not say enough about Patrick. When you are in the process of selecting your realtor the two main qualities you have to look for in my opinion are, local knowledge and excellent communication; Patrick has both. I have to tell you I have put this guy through the ringer over the years and he just puts everything, including me back into perspective. Just recently Patrick was again involved with me in a transaction and again he answered my call much later than he should have.......but that's Patrick. Knowledge? Well he's been in the business probably close to thirty years at least 20 that I know of and that's what you want. This guy knows the area and has watched everything get built up from scratch (especially Redwood Shores). Another quality I like regarding Patrick is he will be what you need him to be. I'm always asking questions and I want him to explain everything to me but if you want him to "just take care of it" he can do that also.
Just call him you'll see. My wife likes him too.

I have known Patrick for over two decades. We were both original owners in the complex I just moved from. He has always been very generous with his time and assistance and views his business as a long term play versus a short term transaction. Over the years, I have checked in with Patrick with questions about the market and he was always happy to help even though I was not ready to sell. I recently listed my townhouse with Patrick and it sold over asking in 6 days. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him if you are looking to buy or sell in Redwood Shores.

We cannot emphasize enough how happy we were with Patrick's services! He was incredibly knowledgeable and organized, and always prompt, professional and pleasant in his interactions. Every call, email and text was promptly and comprehensively addressed; he had a roster of vendor recommendations for prepping the house, and he handled all of them in our absence; his suggestions were preparing and handling the sale were spot-on; and all paperwork was organized and handled with the minimum effort on our part. We sincerely believe that the final sale price reflected Patrick's hard work and expert advice on preparing and pricing the condo. We wholeheartedly recommend his services and look forward to working with him again!

I just closed on my house in Redwood City and I'm very pleased with how easy the sale went. We brought in Patrick early on and received smart advice on market timing and pricing and we ended well. Patrick managed my expectations and fairly and tactfully mediated disputes. If I were to buy or sell another home in the Bay Area, my first choice would be to hire Patrick's team.

Patrick is always a pleasure to work with. He is very helpful with any questions and always responds very promptly. He is very professional, has much knowledge of real estate and the market and had a calming nature about him. We would definitely recommend Patrick to anyone looking for a home! We could not be happier with Patrick.

Patrick helped us to sell our house at a desirable price in a less than ideal market. It wasn't the best time for sellers, but Patrick did a very professional work throughout the whole processing. We believe what makes the big difference is his calmness, confidence, strategical planning, thorough analysis in the face of different (sometimes difficult) situations, and his deep knowledge about redwood shores. Without any hesitation we would recommend Patrick to our friends, family, and co-workers in real estate needs.

Patrick is very knowledgeable about Redwood shores and surrounding areas. He is responsive and easy to communicate. He makes great recommendations of properties we are likely interested in. He is patient, well-organized, and resourceful. We're very satisfied with the property he helped us land and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for their next home.

Patrick helped find a home for us. In our original search, we narrowed a certain area and he sent letters to homeowners checking to see what their interest level was. While no one was ready to sell in that particular area, we ended up finding another home in which he represented us.

He is very knowledgeable about all the areas in RWS. He knows the floor plans very well and has a lot of insight on the buying and selling patterns in the area.

When it came time to closing on the sale, Patrick made the process very smooth. He is quick to return emails and calls. He is detailed, organized and reliable. All in all, he is a wonderful resource and we would highly recommend him.

We sold our condo in Redwood City within a couple of weeks with a desirable offer. We believe the credit goes to a thorough analysis and strategic planning by Mr. Patrick Carmichael. He conducted the entire process with sophistication and confidence. It is obvious he is an experienced master in this business. Furthermore, he is personable, calm, responsive and pleasant. We truly enjoyed working with him and will not hesitate recommending him to our family and friends for any future real estate consultation and representations.

Patrick was incredibly professional, highly responsive, and extremely thorough in looking out for our best interest. He accomplished so many "behind the scenes" tasks to ensure a smooth transition between the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. He absolutely lives up to his reputation of excellence.
We are very confident in recommending him to anyone looking for a realtor who is familiar with Redwood Shores and knows the ins and outs of the market while.

Patrick is an excellent and outstanding realtor! He went above and beyond our expectations. He is exceptionally detail-oriented, communicative, honest and kind without sacrificing his business edge. He was a teacher as well as an agent, running us through every aspect of the process.

We hired Patrick over several realtors we interviewed because he has a great reputation, is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate market, reliable, hardworking and highly respected with other realtors in the area. He listened to our wants and needs and jumped right in and was very patient with us during the stressful move.

Patrick gave us rock solid advice about the housing market. He was 110% committed in helping us get the house ready with inspections, staging and suggestions on how to get top dollar for our home…and we got over the asking price!

He kept us updated throughout the negotiations. Without hesitation, he arranged to meet us on our schedule, met with an inspector and stager and even watered our yard when we moved!

He was generous with his time and we always felt had our best interests at heart.

We cannot even imagine going through the selling process with anyone else. Thank You Patrick!

I can't say enough about Patrick Carmichael. I interviewed 5 real estate agents and I chose Patrick because of his thorough and proactive approach, his professional "service-oriented" manner and my financial bottom-line. I felt like I had a "partner" at every step of the process. He organized and paid for inspections out of his own pocket and ensured my home was shown at it's very best by having me consult with a stager, again, paid for out of his pocket. His expert understanding of the market allowed me to price my home exactly right. Thanks to Patrick, my home had multiple offers and was under contract within 10 days of listing and closed within 30 days of being under contract. Truly, you will find no better representative for your property!

Redwood Shores Home owner
We worked with Patrick when selling out Redwood Shores house in the summer 2013. Patrick was very thorough when explaining the process for us in the beginning. He was always available and get back to us promptly, if we had any questions. Patrick brought in a nice staging expert who set up the house for viewing using our paired down furniture and decorations.

Patrick was very transparent in the way he managed our sale process. We were not left guessing what the next steps will be when we dealt with a bid retraction or an international buyer. He used electronic document signing site that saved us time and allowed for faster turnaround of closing paperwork.

Bottom line is that we would work with Patrick again.

I am very pleased to provide the following reference for Patrick Carmichael. I contracted with Patrick to sell my residence in Redwood City and he exceeded all expectations I had of a real estate professional. He was upfront and honest about all related matters. He encouraged me to think and decide versus pushing his own thoughts onto me. He was abundantly available and answered my questions quickly and thoroughly.

Patrick priced my home skillfully, given market considerations, at a level enabling a rapid sale over the course of a weekend.

I was delighted with every aspect of Patrick's handling of the transaction and I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
