Pat is a true professional who cares about his clients and wants them to find the home that’s right for them. He was helpful, patient, and always available when we had a question or wanted to see a home. He’s an expert when it comes to the El Dorado Hills market. He was so easy to work with and we can’t recommend him enough. Thanks to Pat, we just purchased our forever home and couldn’t be happier!

I couldn’t ask for a better partner in the real estate industry. Now that the sale of my home is closed, I wanted to take the time to thank you for the excellent job you did in marketing the home and negotiating and closing the deal. As you may know, I interviewed 3 real estate agents to potentially represent my home for sale. After the interview process, you clearly stood out as the best choice for my home. You were well prepared for our discussion, had a clear and effective plan to market the home, and had a very well thought out and analytic proposal for pricing. You also were very helpful in preparing the home for sale. In addition to the basics of pricing and marketing, you also stood out in terms of your commitment to communications and respecting my desire to coordinate access to the home during showings. I also noticed that you were always present during showings, making sure every potential buyer was aware of the custom and high end features of the home. Finally, you were very effective during the final steps of the process, making sure all potential buyers were engaged when offers were being submitted, and offering very good advice during negotiations. I only wish you could have been available to assist us in the purchase of our new home in Florida !!

Pat has set a new standard by which we now measure realtors! We are retired, sold our last home in Utah and just moved to Folsom after searching the entire West for a place that spoke to us. Just moved into our new home in the 7-800,000 range. We have also lived in Wisconsin and Colorado and bought, sold, and built eight homes. Interviewed over 30 realtors. Kind of experienced in this process and have seen the good and bad.
Pat is clearly the most effective realtor and just one of the nicest persons we have met. Why? Prompt, succinct communication…available literally all the time…knowledgeable about the community…excellent team of inspectors…savvy negotiator…absolutely the highest ethical standards…in this market, a buyer needs to move quickly, he is absolutely lightning…and lastly, just kind of a fun guy to work with. Good luck on your sell or purchase.

Thank you, Pat, for being with us every step of the way!! Pat Quan is a real estate agent that goes above and beyond to take care of your real estate needs. He is available via phone or text, in addition to weekly Friday email updates on the progress of the process of buying a house. I always enjoyed his calm demeanor throughout the process. My favorite Pat Quan story is when I asked for the dimensions of a family room on a house we were interested in buying, not only did he measure the room, he made a diagram of the shape of the room along with the measurements at every angle of the space which is definitely going above and beyond!!!

Buyer, Folsom & Roseville
Pat is a fantastic real estate agent! We had the opportunity to work with him when purchasing two homes, one in Folsom and one in Roseville. He spent time getting to know our preferences and would provide excellent objective comments about each home we would visit. His responsiveness and follow-thru was so appreciated. We always knew that when we sent Pat a message that he would get back to us in an extremely timely manner with responses that were thorough and informative. Besides Pat's top notch professionalism and understanding of the real estate market, he is also a genuinely nice person to work with and this is always a huge plus when dealing with a stressful situation like purchasing a home. We would highly recommend Pat to any buyer or seller looking for a top-tier real estate agent.

This is an amazing story as we are novices in the real estate world. We were fortunate to have a colleague refer us to Pat Quan because of the great job he did in selling their home within a targeted time frame.  We checked out his credentials, web site, and sent him an email and he responded that day with a personal video and an appointment to meet a week later. We decided to hire Pat.  His energy and sense of commitment and engaging personality was a winning combination. Most critically Pat worked on a pricing strategy designed to attract the right buyers and to meet and hopefully exceed our financial expectations. Pat brought the market expertise to the table and had the people oriented personality to effectively negotiate with the buyers such that it was win-win.  Pat completed a detailed XLS comparing all the offers with pros and cons such that we could follow his rationale on which buyer was an optimal match for us. There was an unexpected complication to the transaction while in contract: an out-of-state owner neighbor initiated a boundary dispute.  In fact, that neighbor called Pat who handled the situation perfectly. Pat also recommended an expert real estate attorney to provide counsel. It was a complicated transaction requiring an expert Realtor.

Another five stars for Pat Quan! We were looking for a home in Folsom and our listing agent referred us to Pat. Pat was wonderful to work with. He was personable, responsive, and knowledgeable and patiently helped us navigate every detail of our home purchase. Pat has a lot of expertise, and best of all, he is just a genuinely nice guy. We enjoyed getting to know Pat Quan and would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone. Thanks Pat!

Retired, past In-house lender Coldwell Banker and Lyon Real Estate
Having worked with Pat Quan for 10 years as one of his lenders before I retired, and having been a lender for 30 years, I can honestly say that Pat Quan is one of the very best Realtors in the Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County regions. He is dedicated to giving his buyers and sellers the best possible service.

Why did I choose Pat Quan to sell my home in El Dorado Hills?

In over 20 years of living in El Dorado Hills, I had one Realtor ever stop by and inquire whether or not a “For Sale” sign placed in the street close to my house was offensive and offered to relocate it if so. That person was Pat Quan.

I thought to myself, if this person cares enough about the feelings of others to take the time, to ask and offer, to change something on public property, to satisfy the feelings a total stranger, then he was most likely someone who could be trusted to conduct business. My assessment turned out to be totally correct. I chose Pat to sell my home, and it was one of the best decisions I have made. His professionalism and expert knowledge sold my home in an extremely short period and for more than the asking price.

I highly recommend Pat to anyone planning the sale of a home.

I don’t know how Pat does it. It must be how thorough and trustable he is. He pays attention to all the details that equate to a great selling experience. All those details also got me five and half percent over my asking price. Pat will support you through every phase of the sale of your property. I recommend Pat Quan.

We selected Pat to sell our home last year because of Pat's ability to help us select the best qualified buyer and close the deal. Pat did a fantastic job! He keep us well informed during the entire process and verified that the buyer had the funding available to complete the transaction. Pat's analytical skills were outstanding. We highly recommend Pat.

I highly recommend Pat Quan! He is knowledgeable, personable, and knows how to sell homes. I had followed Pat’s sale and listing records over the past few years and knew he was the realtor for the job. I’m very happy we chose him. Pat Quan knows the market, has a proven track record of selling houses, and we highly recommend him. We chose Pat to sell my mother-in-law’s house. We found him to be extremely knowledgeable about market conditions, helped us to price the house just right to sell – even though the market had taken a downturn and interest rates were rising – and he guided us through the process of getting the house ready to sell. He kept us up to date with weekly emails regarding home sales in our neighborhood and changes in the overall housing market. He provided a lot of personal attention to detail and was always available for a question or to help when needed.

With the changing markets, now more than ever it’s important to work with someone you trust, and we can’t recommend Pat highly enough. His pricing strategy earned us more money as our house sold quickly and for well above our asking price. For us, that changed everything as we planned our move to our new home.
When we decided to sell our home, we were completely lost as to who to select as an agent. Fortunately, a friend we trust recommended Pat. He was recommended both on a professional level and as a friend he respected, and that meant a lot to us. With the number of agents out there, it’s easy to fall into the mindset that they’re all the same. They’re not. From our first meeting through to the close of our sale, Pat was great. He brought suggestions to the table we’d never heard from another agent, and those suggestions absolutely made a difference. 90% of the stress that comes along with a sale and escrow were eliminated because of his approach and his focus on finding the right buyer.

Buyer, Sacramento
I could not have asked for a better person to have in my corner than Pat. As a first-time homebuyer, he was exceptional at explaining the home buying process to me and patiently walked me through each step. I did my own research on the market before engaging with Pat, but realized immediately after meeting him how invaluable it is to have an experienced professional on your side. The communications were always timely and thorough, he was incredibly accommodating with my schedule, and I never felt like I was being pressured into a decision. In this crazy market, Pat tactfully negotiated with the listing agent and was successful in saving me TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on the offer price of the perfect home! I highly recommend Pat for any prospective home buyers. It was a great experience.

It is our pleasure to recommend Pat Quan as a real estate agent for any individual or family looking to sell their home in a unique situation. We recommend Pat Quan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and he would be our first choice in real estate agents if we were to sell our home again.

We purchased a new home that was in the process of being built and needed to sell our current home for a specific amount and within a specified timeframe.

After interviewing three other candidates, we had an initial meeting with Pat and he took diligent notes regarding our specific needs. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly determine a fair offer price for our home. Because it was a tough market and we had few showings, Pat made it possible to maximize the number of open houses we had to generate interest in our home, resulting in an offer.

While the offer was below what we hoped, Pat’s skillful negotiations successfully brought the offer up within our acceptable range. Throughout this stressful home buying process, he made us at ease by thoughtfully explaining the nuances of the home buying process and by ensuring us that everything would work out in the end. He knows the El Dorado Hills/Cameron Park/Folsom area like the back of his hand. There is nothing that escapes Pat’s attention when it comes to properties in this area.

We found Pat to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls, texts and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is highly personable with an engaging personality. Pat also has a network of people from stagers, to photographers, to handmen, who worked with us to put our house in the best light. We recommend Pat Quan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Pat Quan, thank you! Your clear communication, attention to detail, responsiveness, and outstanding follow-through nade purchasing our dream home a breeze. I especially appreciate your consultative emails and calls, because you made sure we were clear on the implications of each choice.

Seller, Placerville & Buyer, Folsom
We are so incredibly fortunate to have been referred to Pat Quan to help us with, quite literally, a life changing series of events. Pat represented us in both the sale of our home and property in Placerville and, simultaneously, with the purchase of a home in Folsom. With Pat’s able guidance, our Placerville home sold in five day at $30k over asking price and within a week, while we were in escrow, our offer on a Folsom home was accepted and we were in contract. In less than six weeks, we sold our home of nearly twenty years and closed escrow on our new home. Amazing!
Pat Quan is an exceptionally talented real estate professional. He is smart, knowledgeable, experienced, impressively organized, and is an excellent listener and communicator. From our first phone conversation with Pat in early December, 2021 through the text messages we exchanged this week (late May of 2022), Pat has been helpful, kind, and wise in his advice, skillfully guiding us through the the many processes involved with preparing our home for sale through the completion of the purchase of our new home in a very hot Folsom market. Pat’s approach to his craft is never heavy handed. His advice, suggestions and strategies proved invaluable getting our house ready for sale. He advised us to complete all inspections prior to putting our house on the market, thereby reducing stress, and eliminating unknown issues and points of future negotiation. He helped us feel like we were negotiating from a position of knowledge and strength.
When we hired Pat as our agent, we had no idea the tremendous wealth of knowledge and the many resources he would bring to our home sale and purchase experience. Pat referred us to an incredible team of professionals, each of whom was beyond fantastic. The photographers, home inspector, roofer, and tile repairman were amazing in terms of the quality and timeliness of their work. The financing agent Pat referred us to worked with us from the moment we decided to sell our home through the close of escrow on our home purchase. And now, as we are moving into our new home, Pat continues to be a source of referrals to highly skilled trades professionals. A Pat Quan referred electrician is coming next week to install 220 volt power and an EV charger in our garage. Our relationship with Pat did not end when our home purchase was completed. His prompt, personable, and professional services are one call or text message away.
One last Pat Quan anecdote will forever be in our memory. Part of the sale of our Placerville property required a Cal Fire Defensible Space inspection. This inspection is a new requirement in the disclosure process reflecting the times we now live in in California. During the inspection, the Cal Fire agent indicated that the only issue we had with that required remediation was the presence of wood chips on the ground within ten feet of our propane tank. I should add that the buyer’s agent was present at this inspection as well. With a calm yet assertive demeanor, Pat asked the Cal Fire agent if we could satisfy the one issue of concern by raking the wood chips away from the propane tank while the agent was still there in order to get the coveted “no issues observed” check off on the inspection, When the Cal Fire agent said yes, the first person to grab a rake was Pat who rolled up his sleeves and started raking! I followed Pat’s lead, and within ten minutes, our Cal Fire Defensible Space inspection was complete, with no issues to disclose or negotiate. We were all greatly relieved, including the buyer’s agent who witnessed the entire inspection.
In closing, I can think of no better real estate professional to represent the interests of a buyer or seller of a home than Pat Quan. As we make our transition to a new home and community, we are profoundly grateful to Pat and his team of associates whose invaluable assistance made this transition possible. Beyond Pat’s impressive talents as a real estate professional, he is an even better person. Pat is a wise and honest gentleman, genuine in his concern for the well being of his clients. We cannot thank him enough for his help in making our lives better.

PAT QUAN SAVED OUR FAMILY A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MONEY. My family moved to Folsom during the height of the real estate pinch in 2022. We knew no one in the area and houses were flying off the market well above asking price. It was a scary and intimidating market in which to be a buyer; moreover, our lack of knowledge about the area meant that if we were going to buy a house, we were going to have to invest a significant amount of trust in an agent/advisor. We met Pat attending one of his open houses, and chose to use him as our agent. He won our trust through his hard work, consistent communication, and honesty regarding properties we viewed. He didn't tell us what we wanted to hear or try to just get a deal done, instead he advocated for us in a straightforward way throughout the buying process.
The trust we invested in him was rewarded when we purchased a home for well below what we thought the home would ultimately sell for. He saved us thousands of dollars, if not tens of thousands of dollars. Throughout the process he was supportive, insightful, knowledgeable, and easy to get in touch with; he is a spectacular real estate agent.
