Patti Smylie was our advocate throughout our entire process, from “just kind of thinking about buying,” to “that’s our dream home, please make it happen!” She’s a native of the Livermore area, and so she knows everything about each neighborhood, and she has connections and relationships that go back 50+ years. Always quick to reply to any phone calls or emails, she never kept us waiting. We always felt like her first priority. And when there were some potentially worrisome things that came up along the way, she negotiated and communicated with everyone involved to make things happen for us. I know that she “sweated the small stuff” on our behalf more than once. We’ve worked with half a dozen realtors over the years; Patti Smylie is the best.
