I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Mrs. Patricia Sherwood as a Realtor with Long and Foster. Throughout the entire process Mrs. Sherwood was professional, conscientious, and motivated. I always felt as though I was her only client.
I was very happy to have Mrs. Sherwood work with me to sell my home. Mrs. Sherwood scheduled all meetings and interactions at my convenience after work and on weekends. She provided me with outstanding advice about how to prepare my home for sale. She provided a profile on the house for people touring, and promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. Mrs. Sherwood worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation throughout the entire process.
Mrs. Sherwood diligently checked multiple sources to verify that our pricing was accurate and met my goal of selling the house within a certain timeframe. My home was under contract in 3 days after the initial listing, I received an offer of exactly what I wanted, and closed within 30 days. I really appreciated Mrs. Sherwood’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Mrs. Sherwood was the outstanding professional I was looking for and having her work with me was a wonderful success!

“We had a wonderful experience using Patricia Sherwood as our realtor. We were looking to purchase a new home and Patricia was able to be patient with us and work around our schedules as we were searching. Her attention to detail allowed my family to choose from numerous homes that fit both our price range and personalities. We couldn’t be more happier with her work and would recommend her to anyone searching for or selling a home.”
I was asked to comment on Patti Sherwood's abilities as a Realtor. Simply put, Patti has been everything I expected of a Realtor and a good deal more. I couldn't be more pleased with the service I've received from her and the entire Long and Foster organization.
After inheriting some money from a relative last year, I decided to invest in some rental properties. For help, I turned to Long and Foster because I believe they are the largest realty agency hereabouts. When I called for info, Patti picked up the phone (on the first ring, mind you), and the rest is history.
To start me on my quest, Patti connected me with a senior broker who has decades of firsthand landlord experience. The tips I got, such as the critical importance of location, were invaluable and helped me narrow in on the places I wanted.
I find Patti very easy to work with every step of the buying process, from shopping to closing. She's old enough to be very good at what she does, yet young enough to be energetic.
Initially I was a little worried she might put someone else's interests ahead of mine, or that were I to ask her opinion, she might beg off with some mambi-pambi, noncommittal answer. Instead I found her to be honest and a straight-shooter, with lots of relevant experience to draw on. She also brings the woman's perspective, which I appreciate. Were it not for her, I would still have no idea that ceiling borders, which I thought were pretty cool, are hopelessly passe!
I took advantage of Long and Foster's tenant acquisition service. Expensive as it is (1 month rent), I'm glad I did. I think of it as just another type of insurance, call it "tenant insurance." Patti handles advertising and showing the property as well as evaluating and negotiating with applicants, which includes a detailed background check. If an applicant makes it through the L&F gauntlet, you know he or she is low risk. So far my first 3 tenants have been golden.
Patti is really good at keeping in touch, something I value a lot. Her preferred mode of communication is email, which happens to be what I like too.
