Ellen Brantley and Ron Vitt, Sonoma, CA

When we made the choice to move to Sonoma, we hired Pat Brown as our agent. My brother and his wife had hired her for their home purchase and my dad subsequently had Pat and Norm Brown help with the purchase of two homes — we figured we’d be in good company.

She and Norm know the area like the back of their hands and they’re patient, professional, thorough, and upfront about the pros and cons of a particular property. They bend over backwards to make sure that the house you buy meets your needs and will help you explore those needs so that you end up with exactly what you want.

We can’t imagine hiring anyone else.
