We Purchased our home without seeing it in person! Patty assured us that it's a great home. When we attended the final walkthrough, we were so pleased and we loved it! We had a great experience working with Patty. Her professionalism and industry knowledge are unmatched. She always went above and beyond for us.
We highly recommend Patty!

Patty and her team went above and beyond for my wife and I. They worked around the clock to make a difficult closing happen on the house that our heart fell for (thanks to her finding it!). Patty and her business partner, Denise are amazing people who believe in their motto of "Humans Over Houses." I feel a huge debt of gratitude to the NextHome team and couldn't recommend them more!!

Integrative Health Practitioner
I was referred to Patty by a friend when I was "loosely" thinking of
buying my first home. Patty was patient with me knowing I was in no rush. She was readily available by text and e-mail and always on time to see properties. Before I knew it I made an offer on a property, and from there she was very reliable with a open line of cimmunication. I'm glad to have had her on my team as this process was new to me and she helped to make it smooth and streamlined!

Devoted Wife & Mother
My husband and I highly recommend Patty for any Raleigh Area real estate transactions. She was introduced to me by a good friend and we hit it off right away. She is kind, knowledgeable, and has the patience of a saint! Moving from CA to NC is quite a change... We really needed to learn about the area and the school system, and Patty had all the answers. She is honest and straightforward, and after speaking with us, really understood what we wanted. We had many requirements of a new residence, and Patty combed through countless listings to find us the ideal home. Thank you Patty!

Patty was amazing to work with. She had our house on the market within a few days of us initially contacting her. She was willing to work with our quick timeline and did not cut any corners to get it done. She had professional photos taken and gave us great advice on pricing. Our house had multiple showings per day and sold in just 8 days! I would guess there isn’t another realtor in business that could match her communication skills and response time. She was quick to answer questions and helped us find resources for repairs.

Thank you very much Patty!

Sommelier & Private Chef
Patty was a fantastic partner in helping me sell my parents home. She was everything you could dream of in a real estate broker, and so much more. Patty was insightful and detail oriented in all areas including: when to list the house, listing price (balancing not only our desire to get as much for it as possible, but also selling quickly), how to stage the house, how to balance open houses and listing appointments, and most importantly in the negotiating, closing the deal, and buttoning up all the millions of things that need to be done. Patty was empathetic, dedicated, efficient and thorough in her communication, extremely organized and trustworthy, and honestly a delight to work with. We felt extremely well taken care of during every step of the process. I can't imagine that selling my parents home from out-of-town could have gone half as smoothly with anyone other than Patty. A pure delight, whom I whole-heartedly recommend.

Patty goes above and beyond to get things done for her clients. I just bought my first home with her, and the process felt just too easy! She's such a trustworthy, personable agent to work with, and I would recommend her ten times over.

By far the best real estate company to work with. I used them twice so far and will use them again.

Patty was very helpful in the sale of my home. She did a wonderful job of analyzing the residential market so I could get the best price for my property. Glad to have her assistance and would definitely recommend her to others.

Creative Producer
Patty has helped us with three homes now. Our first was in 2014 when we moved from up north and she was an excellent resource and partner in the moving process. She ran errands for us as we were not able to do much from so far away. We ended up in a great neighborhood close to all we needed which was great to establish roots in the area. She was attentive, very friendly, knew the area and had great recommendations. Smooth process, even when dealing with difficult sellers on closing day.

The 2nd home was for my parents and again she was excellent with her communication and follow through. She was always available to answer our questions throughout the process. Smooth process.

Our most recent purchase was our upgraded home. This was a year long process of viewing over a dozen homes and always keeping our options open. She was always very attentive, diligent in her research of the home and area, and was always flexible with her schedule to come and meet us for a viewing. She has been our rock during a difficult mortgage process where we had to switch lenders after our close date due to incompetence of lender. Her recommendation of a new mortgage banker and lender saved the day and got us into our new home! Couldn't have gotten through without her.

Thank you so much Patty! Always our #1 choice!

Patty is amazing! She has helped us with both buying and selling homes. She guided us through the entire process and left no question/concern unanswered. Moving can be stressful in general but Patty made everything a breeze. I would recommend her to anyone! Go see Patty

OK!!! Do you have 100 STARS, because 5 is not enough. There aren't enough great words to explain who, what, how, when, where of Patty. My sister used her and "loves her some Patty" as she says. So of course, I made her my choice. Now I have purchased two homes in the past, and had used the same realtor, but wanted to go with Patty and so glad I did.
Customer Focused - Always there, I thought I was her only client even though I knew I was not. This is how she made me and my husband feel.
Accountable - What ever she said, SHE DID !! Time scheduled, she was there before. Call needed, made before you even knew it. What do you need, already had it done before you even thought to ask for it.
Ethical - Did everything in a manner of so much respect, so much integrity, so much trust, so much dignity, so MUCH PATTY. I love her, I really truly do. If she needed my kidney, she could have it. When is the surgery, I will be there.
All of the tools she uses to run her business, from DocuSign, to assistants there when needed. I'm in tears because there are no words good enough to explain Patty.

Patty has been such a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and knows her stuff. I was a first time home seller and need someone to hold my hand and guide me through each and every step from start to finish. She did just that a more. She recommended great contractor for home repairs. She was able to sell my house in 2 days! I would recommend Patty to friends and family. I am happy to say I will be doing business with her in the future.

Patty and her team were amazing! She made the process so easy and enjoyable. The market was super competitive but she worked hard to show us multiple listings, and eventually we found the right one. We did not have to worry about anything!

I am a secretary to a Supreme Court Justice and my husband is an attorney at law.
My husband and I were looking for a home in North Carolina and Patty Topakian was our realtor. She helped us find a beautiful home. We were from out of state and had little time to look for a home. When we met with Patty to view homes, she was well organized and constructed the day to view efficiently the types of homes we wanted. She was extremely knowledgeable and was very efficient about obtaining information needed to make a wise choice in a home. We had a wonderful experience with Patty because she was so good at her profession. She took care of everything and we closed on our home without any problems. We highly recommend Patty. Not only is she knowledgeable, experienced and ethical, but also, she was simply a pleasure to deal with.

HR Director
Patty worked with me to find a townhome for my daughter as well as help me prepare for and list my current home in Durham, NC. I have never encountered anyone in the real estate business that was more available, prompt and timely regarding all aspects of the buying and selling process. She made my daughter feel comfortable as a brand new home buyer and has been in constant communication with me as we schedule and get feedback on my home that is for sale. She knows her stuff - in and out - and has done all of the leg work for me and my daughter. Thank you Patty for an exceptional buying and (hopefully soon) selling experience!!
