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.

Pat was the best decision we made! He made it very easy for us. Employing his strategy when listing our home earned us more money and reduced our stress considerably.

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.

Buyer, Folsom
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.

Having sold several houses in the past I can definitively say this was the best experience I have ever had. From our initial meeting discussing pricing strategies and marketing to the communication leading up to the listing and finally the way you walked us through the offers to make sure we weighed all the options before entering escrow was executed flawlessly. Pat’s plan was very well orchestrated; the strategy and negotiations resulted in multiple offers, a solid buyer and a price well over list price. You are a true professional and if anyone asks me if I know a good realtor I would say “no, I know a great realtor his name is Pat Quan!” Thank you for all you did for me and my family!

Seller & Buyer
Pat helped us both buy a home and sell our home this year. As a result of Pat's work, we earned more on the sale of our home and saved more on the purchase of our home. He is a highly skilled agent with excellent communication skills. He helped us to really understand the selling process and did a tremendous job to market our home which resulted in a quick sale. When purchasing our home he was just as equally communicative and skilled. He was a great advocate on our behalf and helped to guide us through different scenarios and questions to consider to ensure we would be happy in our home for many years to come. His responsiveness, knowledge, commitment, and consideration make him the best agent we have worked with and the only agent we would consider recommending to friends and family.

Former Client of Pat Quan
My father chose Pat Quan to sell his El Dorado Hills home. My father passed away before the sale was completed, and Pat seamlessly worked with my two stepsisters and myself to continue the sale process. He was available 24/7 and had endless patience with us. Bear in mind, too, that only one of us lived in California. I'm in Alaska, but found him as accessible as if we were in the same town.

Here's an example of what Pat Quan does for people who are his clients: One Sunday morning, I got a call from elderly neighbors of my father. There was, they said, "water shooting up in the back yard." I was thousands of miles away. I had no idea of the scope of the problem, and calls to the local water company just got me a recording! I wasn't sure if the water was coming from the house itself, if a water main had broken or what the problem was. I called Pat Quan and left a message about the issue, and then continued to try to solve it from here in Alaska. Meanwhile, Pat heard my early-morning message, jumped out of bed, and told his wife, "I have to get to El Dorado Hills NOW." He was on site before the local fire department (who had agreed to check out the problem). Then Pat connected me with a trustworthy, and fairly-priced handyman to fix the problem they found. No, Folsom Reservoir wasn't draining from my father's back yard, but I had no way to know from this remove.

So when I say Pat makes himself available 24/7, I truly mean it. But, please, don't put that to the test unless it's an emergency. Let the poor guy have a life! Just be sure to give him your business and tell others about what a good decision that was.

If I had to describe Pat Quan in one word, it would be “amazing”.
We recently asked Pat to help us sell my parents’ home in Sacramento, where they had lived since 1960. Pat was recommended by another Coldwell Banker realtor, Chuck Cochran. We knew Chuck because he helped us as sellers for two homes in the Bay area. We contacted Chuck for a realtor recommendation in the Sacramento area. Longtime friends and coworkers, Chuck immediately mentioned Pat. We soon understood why.
Not only congenial and friendly, Pat was professional in his review of the house and the area of its location. He also gave us ideas for updating and repairing the house before listing. He had amassed a team of painters, handymen, photographers and stagers; this made the process easier for us to list the home quickly and affordably. These team members were all prompt, helpful and professional.
Pat did an excellent market analysis with comparisons to houses in our area. This helped us competitively price the house to attract the most prospective buyers. When offers came in, Pat helped us evaluate them using a spreadsheet that highlighted weaknesses and strengths as well as areas for reasonable buyer/seller negotiations. He communicated the status of the selling process with a weekly Friday update as well as noting key developments.
When we accepted an offer and went into escrow, Pat gave us a schedule of key events and dates. All were regularly reviewed to ensure that the sale was progressing as planned.
From the first step of listing to the final step of escrow close, Pat was above and beyond helpful and readily available to us by phone or email. My wife and I can truly say we regard Pat an outstanding realtor and would recommend him to anyone who has a real estate need.

Pat is our Realtor! And so much more. Pat EMPOWERS us to make the decision which is in our best interest. The purchase process is so stressful. I have no idea how he does this every day (evening and sometimes, well into the night). He has very high integrity and is 100% in our corner. He is so patient, responsive & diligent. He understands the stress of making one of the biggest purchases of our life and its impact on us. I think he’s part psychologist, pastor, peace maker and maybe in some cases, marriage counselor. He listens, advises and strategizes to help us achieve our goals. He understands and emphasizes how our emotions play a significant role in our decisions. We’re glad that he’s our Realtor. God Bless! ??

If you want a realtor that puts your needs first, call Pat Quan. Pat is a gem. Pat is experienced, patient, intelligent, discerning, gives great guidance and incredibly knowledgeable about real estate in the greater Sacramento area. Pat enthralled me with his quiet confidence and won me over with his ability to skillfully negotiate on my behalf. Pat takes the time to understand his client and their needs. I was introduced to Pat Quan by the realtor that I initially hired to sell my home. She brought Pat on because she knew him to be one of the top realtors in Coldwell Banker’s El Dorado Hills office and she understood that she was not meeting my needs. Initially, I was irritated that I was being passed along, but I quickly realized that he is a gem.

We used Pat to buy our new home as well as sell our previous home. Pat was an amazing negotiator for both houses. We saved a lot of money in buying our new house, even in this hot market. Pat also helped us get top dollar for the house we sold. We highly recommend Pat and would absolutely use him again.

Pat was recommended by my sister Edith who sold two of her homes in Sacramento. So when it was time for me to sell my house in Gold River, I did not hesitate to call him. He is very easy to talk to and very detail oriented person. He is very well communicated thru phone call, text, and email. He has a wealth of suggestions & ideas when it comes to selling your house in a timely manner - from preparation of the property thru closing documents. Everything my sister said about him is on point. My house went on market and got a few offers after a few days. It was sold over my asking price in 6 days and closed 7 days after. I am very happy to have him as a friend realtor and I will not hesitate to recommend him to anybody. I will consider him as our Family's realtor.

Pat Quan was recommended by my wife's classmate, Colleen C, as an outstanding local agent while we were searching a suitable living place in Folsom or EDH after retirement.

Pat immediately provided us valuable suggestion about pricing, neighbors, and more. His quick thinking, friendly and low-pressure manner suited us perfectly.
During the house inspection, Pat assisted us to pay attention on the structure, major appliance, security features and much more. Pat literally saved us thousands of dollars on the transaction process.

Fortunately we met a generous seller whom kept his property under well maintenance. We are grateful for both Pat and seller.

Pat continued to help us through the closing escrow and beyond. We sincerely feel fortunate to have him on our side. Therefore, we highly recommend his as the reliable agent. Thanks, Pat!
