Recently, a close friend was struggling with negotiating the sale of their property. Their need for privacy, off-the-market anonymity, very-limited social interaction, and the need to carefully listen to a host of other complex considerations were paramount to the health and well-being of my friend. Patricia, you were the best! We needed a Team that would carefully craft a strategy to mitigate the complexities of such a sale in a highly volatile and economically shifting climate. One that could potentially result in hundred-of-thousands of dollars in losses in listing the property. We needed the right buyer, the right timing, and the right team to facilitate the transaction. This situation was not for the typical Realtor. A close friend, Catherine Vukosa recommended Patricia Kelner and David Lindsay of Coldwell Banker to manage the sale of the Silicon Valley property. Patricia’s care and kindness to my friend, in daunting situations, were beyond the pale. And David’s support was necessary for a cohesive and successful conclusion. Thank you. Your business acumen simply exceeded any expectations.

It was such a great pleasure to work with Patricia for selling our California house. We got to know her through relocation, during which we had the opportunity to interview with several agencies and pick the best one. I am so glad we picked Patricia! Her wealth of knowledge about the local market, good preparation, kindness, and patience really impressed us during her first visit. She treats our home like her own and thoroughly went through each step in this otherwise complicated process. We started selling after we move out of state, so everything is remote. But we felt comfortable leaving our house in Patricia’s hands because we know we can trust her. I highly recommend you to work with her and her team. She is just wonderful!

She was very motivated to help me figure out the process and expectation of each every step. She also went an extra mile to keep information flowing and following up with the seller whenever there's any confusion. Overall, I've learn quite a lot with her being my agent and would feel comfortable recommending her to anyone that needs a professional and attentive agent.

Patricia was wonderful. As a first time homeowner and fairly new to the Bay Area, Patricia provided guidance and education. Specifically, she educated us about competitive loan types for the area, the different contingencies with our loan as well as contract. She guided us through negotiations with the sellers before and during our contract. She was in constant contact with my loan company to make sure we hit our contingencies and closed on time. She also referred us to contractors and several tradesmen as we planned to remodel. She also met us several times at the property before we owned it to get bids on future remodel work. Now that we are remodeling she continues to check in and provide advice during the remodel process. I definitely recommend her to my family and friends.

Mr. Phuc gave Patricia 5 stars out of 5
As a first time home buyer, I knew nothing of the how to buy a house. Patricia pretty much handled everything throughout the buying process, from quickly getting information about houses we were interested to negotiating with the seller to working with the lender and escrow to get the loan through as quickly as possible. She literally check all the boxes. Her most important quality to me, though, is her trustworthiness. I wholeheartedly believe that she always had my best interest in mind throughout the entire process.

Diving into buying our first home, Patricia made every step to help make it happen. Buying a mobile home has its bumps and she help smooth the road and landed us the home of our dreams. She was available everytime we had questions and responded quick. Thanks again for all your work. Mike and Tasha.

I was in the process of moving out of state so had Patricia list my house. Areas that were important to me were someone who knows not just the general RE market but also my local area and market trends. I also needed an agent who would be able to help me do some much needed upgrades to get the property in good market condition. Patricia had some great vendor recommendations and acted as an project manager to coordinate everything. She is very responsive and rarely did several hours go by before I would get a call or text to update me. She was fantastic in all areas, with high attention to details and customer service. I highly recommend!! Patricia has has a good sense of humor so we got along great.

Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting yet stressful times of your life. Patricia helped ease our concerns and encourage us through the entire process. Her attention to detail and decision to stage our home was (I'm sure) the reason our home sold so quickly. She answered my calls and emails quickly and was there to counsel us :) when we were stressed out or needed encouragement. We got into contract while traveling across country and regardless of the time difference, she was available and responsive. Even after we sold our home, she kept in touch to see how our move went and check on us while settling into our new home. We have our realtor for life, thank you Patricia, you are the BEST!

I wish that I could give Patricia a 5 + star rating. As a 74 year old single woman who was selling my home of 40 +years and moving across country, I so appreciated her assistance in helping me to secure a bridge loan, find a mover, pack, arrange for minor repairs, stage the house, and then negotiate a great price. No request for assistance was too small (before, during or after the sale), and she was always responsive, supportive and patient. She provided more "extra" services than I can count. She is the best!

When I bought my first home the market was extremely competitive. I was getting discouraged as I put in offers on 12 other homes with another realtor and was always outbid. Thankfully, I met Patricia. She is extremely patient with her clients and helps guide you through the whole process. She understands the market and will take the time to provide creative strategies to buy your home. Because of her tenacity, organization and excellent communication skills I also worked with her when I decided to sell my home. Both transactions had their own unique challenges and circumstances but she was always positive, did all the heavy lifting and treated everyone with the utmost respect. Her focus isn't the one and done transaction or making quick sale. Instead, she invests in relationships, takes the time to know you and understand what you want, and enjoys finding you your home. If you want a relator whom you can trust and know will put your interests first give her a call. You will enjoy working with her.

I feel like I am an expert on working with Patricia as she helped us purchase our home 3 times, sell our home once and prepare a home for rental once. That we stick with her so much is itself the most positive review. If anyone reading this review wants to direct message for more details, I would be happy to take the time to answer.
I met Patricia right after I got married when we were looking for our first house. This was when we had very little down payment and no other real estate was even responding to our emails. She met us at a coffee shop and really took the time to make us feel like VIPs. She understood our situation and helped us find a great loan agent. She has a wonderful network of professionals from flooring, paint, loans, property management, termites, home inspections, staging, interior design... everything you need professionally done at fair prices and constant communication. She is experienced with all kinds of home purchases. She has navigated a short sale for us, a multiple offer purchase situation, multiple offer sale situation even getting us out of a contract and into a different one when we bought our home in Saratoga. When we sold our home in Communications Hill, the market was a little bit slow. We, however, with her help had an offer in hand before open house and sold well over list with several offers the week after the first open house. I couldn't recommend her more and having David help is more than just an added bonus.
