We have known Patrick Saltz for over 20 years as he has sold two of our homes. Patrick is the consummate professional--knowledgeable, conscientious, hard-working and courteous. He anticipates any and all difficulties, being pro-active in resolution. He maintains constant contact with the sellers of the homes he lists as well as with prospective buyers. He stays abreast of current federal/state/local laws, economic conditions, and individual neighborhood resale statistics that would have an impact on the sale of a home. We have recommended Patrick to our friends and neighbors, but more importantly, to our daughter and son-in-law.Mary and Richard Bresser
Patrick listed our home in Fairfax Station and it was under contract in 7 days of listing. We did carefully follow his advice on many fixes/replacements that needed to be done to make the house "perfect" for the first potential buyers to come through, and he was right they came through immediately and offered full price that same week. At first I had reservations about listing with Patrick because he is a one man show, but it turned out to be extremely advantageous because we had his undivided attention and support. We even left town (because we are retired to another state ) once the house was listed and he handled everything as if the property were his own, including handling unexpected emergency repairs. He was in constant communication with us, almost daily by e mail and phone. We knew everything he did. There were absolutely no down sides to listing with him. We had lots of traffic and a wonderful buyer. Potential buyers are watching the internet themselves and not waiting for an agent to find the right property for them. Patrick did an outstanding job marketing the property on the internet, representing it in person, and getting it sold. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge, more than any realtor I have previously worked with. The real estate market is changing and is a little strange and he understands it. It was surprising to me, but I had heard it from friends selling homes, that condition is more important than price. He strongly urged us to have the home staged by a professional, we were skeptical, but the results were fantastic. Patrick also acted as a buyer’s agent for our daughter and patiently worked with her for a couple of years before she found the right property and he gave her the best advice which resulted in her offer being accepted over 2 others! He really knows his stuff. I strongly recommend him as either a buyer or sellers agent. He is the best.
I have been a client of Patrick Saltz for over 25 years; he has guided me in the purchase of my first home and the sale and purchase of 3 others. He is a professional @ his business & always met my expectations in selling my property for a competitive price and finding the right home to purchase. I have recommended Pat to many of my clients as my Realtor of choice.
Patrick Saltz goes "the extra mile" for you. I was selling a house in Northern Virginia while I was away and I could depend on Patrick to do EVERYTHING! I didn't have to worry about the details...he handled things efficiently and timely. I have used Patrick's services on multiple occasions and will continue to use his services.
Patrick is a knowledgeable and an extremely competent real estate agent. He helped us purchase our home and he has assisted us over the years with screening renters for our rental property. He is great to work with, he is responsive, and he will work hard to make sure you find the perfect home. I would highly recommend him and would definitely work with him if we purchase a home again in the future.
Patrick was extremely professional. Right from the beginning he had a plan and strategy to help us get our house looking the best so it was ready to sell and then he had a complete marketing plan laid out.
One of Patrick's best qualities is that he was very patient with us; he listened to our questions and concerns and answered/addressed them honestly and thoroughly. Patrick's service, knowledge, and overall approach were significantly better than any of the other realtors I've worked with. I would highly recommend him to others and I will definitely work with Patrick on future real estate transactions.
I'd recommend Patrick to anyone who was serious about buying or selling a house in Northern Virginia. Not only would he look out for their interest, but also he would take the time to find out the issues long before the closing.
Probably the most obvious thing about Patrick that anyone would discern right away is that he is really enthusiastic about his job. This is a thing an agent doesn't learn--he either has the enthusiasm or he doesn't. And because of this, you're going to end up with very good service.
Patrick's dad, Paul Saltz, did taxes for my parents for many years. When my dad passed away, I discovered that Patrick managed the real estate end of the Saltz business. He managed the house as a rental property for several years. When I decided to sell it, he handled the sale.
Patrick has been a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. He answers his phone or calls back promptly. He has good advice based on experience, and has a realistic approach to property management and home sales. I wholeheartedly endorse Patrick as either a real estate broker or a property manager. Very professional, and quite easy to work with.
Patrick Saltz's professionalism in working with the clients, the homeowner and the property made me decide that he was dedicated to the interests of both, which makes for an excellent realtor for managing three properties that I own as an absentee landlord. His work in getting the most value and the best "fit" for each was a deciding factor, while being up-to-date in the current market.
He is well versed in market trends and has the resources to guide the homeowner and the client to a successful relationship. He gives alternatives and tireless options while also giving top notch guidance.
He keeps me current about the properties, getting quickly to me about all situations. Patrick has the ability to come into a situation quickly and efficiently with a cost savings approach. Patrick has the resources to solve current problems that often arise with homeownership in an efficient manner. Often, he takes care of minor problems himself, at no cost to me.
After dealing with property managers for many years, he is the best that I have hired.
Larry and I would like to give you a tremendous well done for selling our home. The Northern Virginia housing market in 2009 was a brutal year for current home owners in this buyers’ market. We were so lucky to find you as our listing agent. I can’t recommend you any higher to anyone looking for a reliable, honest listing agent with the integrity and experience to work with buyers. When listing with Patrick, if he says your home should sell for a specific amount, you can trust Patrick to get the job done with minimal angst. It’s always your decision to sell and Patrick with be completely candid and honest with you on what the current market conditions and price should be. I call Patrick the All State man because you are definitely in good hands. Thank you!
Larry and Brenda Stiffler Bear Creek, Manassas, Va.
Kelly and I want to thank you for the superb job you did, once again in helping us sell our house and find us our new dream home. We cannot believe that, in this market, you listed and sold our house, to a Buyer that was willing to offer us free rent until we could find our new place, which you did in less than a week’s time. Your negotiating skills exceeded our greatest expectation. When the appraisal came in much lower than our contract price, we were hesitant to think that without the additional $75K, we would never be able to get the home we wanted. Your ability to pull the transaction together, netting us the exact amount we originally agreed on…to this day has us amassed! Saying Thank you seems so small, you will find the time to let us take you and yours out for a special evening very soon!
Patrick, Diane and I feel so fortunate to have you on our side in this market. These past 2 years, having hired 3 previous agents before meeting you, we felt confident that are dreams to make a move to a new home could be obtained after hiring you. We honestly felt our house was not going to sell after being on the market with multiple brokers. You came in, "set the stage", held the house Open for two weeks and brought us a solid Buyer that was flexible to meet our needs. You immediately found us and negotiated an unbelievable deal on our new home! We are in and thinking...how in the world did you do in 60 days what the others were not able to do in 2 years? All we can say is thank you for everything and you know we will be telling anyone we know or hear of that is looking for a Realtor in Northern Virginia that you are the BEST! Your statement, "I will not rest until your wishes are met" is so true! Thank you
I am writing this letter to send my congratulation on the sale of our house at 10700 Hampton Road, Fairfax Station, VA. When I met you the first of October, you said you would sell the house by Christmas if I listed it with Saltz Reality. Since I had the house listed since April 2005 with a series of other real estate companies, I thought this was just more exaggerated sales propaganda. You made a believer out of me when I attended the closing on December 21, 2007 and received the big check a few days later. In addition to single-handedly accomplishing the sale i.e., both the listing agent and sales agent, your attention to the many details was exemplary. Further your personality and disposition made our association while "business like" still pleasurable. Consider this letter a wholehearted recommendation of your services. Feel free to use it in your pursuit of future real estate opportunities.
Patrick, Cindy and I want to thank you for all your positive innovated marketing and business expertise in listing and selling our home in Springfield. You were always available to answer our questions and needs and made us feel as though we were your #1 priority!
You have once again gone above and beyond our greatest expectations! In a slow market you generated great excitement and sold our home for more than we ever thought possible. You're the best and we will always refer you to anyone we know thinking of buying or selling real estate in the Northern Virginia area.
We cannot say enough how pleased we are with your services. We are truly fortunate to have you on our side. You have guided us through this time without fail. You have our deepest gratitude and appreciation.
Thank you for all your help in selling our home in Burke. Your work to complete the sale, plus your friendliness and relaxed manner made us feel most comfortable and we felt you were on our side after the experience we went through prior to meeting you.
So many times, you offered to (& did) do so much more than we ever expected or hoped for in our search and buying process of our new home. With so many scary stories out there, we consider ourselves lucky to have found you!
After all these years...and through 9 real estate purchases and sales, we just want you to know how grateful we are to have you represent us in all our Virginia real estate endeavors. You have always gone above and beyond our expectations and made the buying and selling process of our homes a great experience!
