The last thing I wanted to worry about was having to deal with the sale of a home during those difficult times. I had the good fortune to have Patricia Gil as my listing agent—she went above and beyond anything I would have expected from a realtor. The home had been rented for a few years and required some updates. Patricia hired and managed the contractors on a daily basis and updated us on the progress along the way. In record time the home had a beautiful new look and she was able to list it in pristine condition, ahead of a competing house in the same neighborhood. As for pricing the home, Patricia’s expert understanding of the housing market was instrumental in her ability to create a pricing strategy that created competing bids amongst prospective buyers. Within three days we had four offers to pick from, with the highest being well over the asking price. I highly recommend Patricia Gil to anyone who wants to work with a true professional who’s not only knowledgeable about the real estate market, but goes above and beyond to ensure you get the best price for your home, while expertly managing every detail of the process.
We met her at one of her showings and knew from that brief encounter that she’d be the perfect fit for these first time home buyers. As our realtor, she helped us find the right house in the (very sought out after) neighborhood we were looking for. From very early on, it was like she just had this sixth sense and just knew our style of home. We truly credit Patricia’s diligence and ultimate yearn to want us to find our perfect home to us finding just that. One thing that separated Patricia apart from other realtors is that she truly cared more about our wants and needs than she did about closing a deal — something that is very rare nowadays. She’s knowledgeable, honest, and very dependable. We literally could not have molded a better Realtor. Long story short... She’s amazing!
I met Patricia by chance during a very difficult time for my family. We were beginning the process of selling my Aunt’s home in Arlington, Virginia. From the first time we met, it was clear to me that she was honest and very passionate about her work. Her skilled knowledge of the area and housing market was unparalleled. From start to finish, she was thorough and handled every detail with complete involvement, care and professional expertise. Her connections with top-notch contractors allowed us to have upgrades done to the home expeditiously and affordably. She continuously went above and beyond to make the selling of the home as easy as possible. She exceeds expectations and gets things done. She was endlessly patient and immensely generous with her time. Because of her strategic planning, marketing and expertise, we had multiple offers on the property within 11 days of placing the property on the market and went to closing within 19 days of accepting a contract. She remained in daily contact with me all the way through the settlement and even after settlement. Patricia Gil is absolutely the best and will be the only Realtor I ever use or recommend.
She guided me through the process and was always available to answer questions and take care of my concerns. Months after closing, she is still very much involved in taking care of my home, helping me deal with the kinks of being a new homeowner. Honestly, she is a friend for many years to come!
Patricia consistently goes above and beyond to help facilitate the home selling/buying process. I have, and will undoubtedly recommend Patricia in the future to anyone buying or selling!
Being first time buyers, Patricia provided us with extensive knowledge throughout every step of the process. Not once did we feel overwhelmed, uninformed, or in any way unprepared when it came to making the important decisions or signing the required documents. When we first began our search for a home, we both felt like we had gotten in over our heads, until we found Patricia. We were very blessed to be able to work with her and we hope that anyone reading this will be equally as fortunate.
Patricia's professionalism and warmth as an individual was quickly apparent as we started exchanging our goals. Throughout the process, she was readily available to answer any questions or address any issues that arose. In addition, she was a very good strategist, allowing us to secure the best execution on both end of the deals. I would highly recommend her service (and I have actually already done so to many of friends and acquaintances) to future home sellers/buyers
She was more than willing to work in the price range I felt comfortable with, and never applied pressure to look at something I felt wasn't right. Her area knowledge is incredible, and she was able to provide personal insight on different neighborhoods and even buildings. Most 'beyond the call of duty' of all, she also helped with pre-move in improvement projects, which were quite sizable in scope. She was consistently responsive to calls and active in negotiations and communications. Highly recommended.
!! As a first time home buyer I really did not understand the process; where to start, the important questions to ask and have answered but Patricia detailed the process for me. She was tenacious, persistent and I could reach her at all times. A little about my experience- I found my home listed for sale a Saturday evening and immediately sent it to her, she responded within minutes and mentioned that there’s an offer but give her a minute. She called me shortly after and confirmed that there was an offer but worked out a time with the owner for me to view the home quickly; she reasoned with the owner that options on her sale would be a good thing and of course the owner agreed. I knew this was my home the moment I stepped in and whispered to Patricia that I wanted this house and she nodded in accordance. As we stepped out of the home, Patricia showed me this detailed email that she had drafted and the attached offer for the home she was waiting to send to the selling agent. The offer gave exactly what the owner was asking but included increments of $1000 up to $9000 which she explained. In a nutshell, I out-bided everyone and the owner liked Patricia’s offer. Such a brilliant lady! I highly recommend her to everyone!
If you are a new home buyer, she makes the process seamless and will be there every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Greater Washington D.C. area and has great insights on the different neighborhoods which offer long term quality. With this knowledge, her primary objective is to deliver the highest results to her clients and is not interested in making a quick commission. For example, she steered us away from homes that were at the top of our budget because the quality was not there, but rather found homes which met our wants and needs with great quality. She is truly in-tune in knowing what her client is seeking.
She adeptly managed every aspect of my complex home purchase from beginning to end. She listened carefully to my needs and wishes, and spent countless hours researching neighborhoods and builders to find just the right fit. Anytime I expressed an interest in a home, she would head over there immediately to check it out and let me know whether it was worth further consideration. When we finally found our dream home, she negotiated hard on my behalf and even guided me through the process of selling my own home For Sale by Owner. During the few challenges and setbacks we encountered, she was a voice of reason and calm. In addition, she was always professional and courteous, organized, on time, and did what she said she was going to do. After we purchased the home, she even pulled together a list of recommended stores and restaurants nearby. Nothing escaped her attention and care. If you are considering Patricia as your realtor, rest assured you are in very good hands and will be completely satisfied with your experience.

Sure she's super sweet, honest but that doesn't do it alone to sell a house or get a great one. Few people these days seem to follow through and get back to you.

We found Patricia responsive, collaborative, and honest. She is an expert negotiator and stager (beautiful listing photos). The sale of our condo had some very tight deadlines and unexpected developments outside of our control and Patricia adeptly guided us through the process. She had a clear vision/plan for our sale, but was also open to our ideas (again, collaborative). Five stars
This review can't do justice to what an AMAZING agent she is. We have worked with Patricia for over two years and her level of professionalism, honesty & dependability, market knowledge & analysis, and patience is beyond what I've seen from any other agent. For Patricia, finding the right home for her clients is a passion not a profession. She worked tirelessly to find my first home and I cannot be happier. Through our journey, Patricia explored countless options and neighborhoods until we found the right opportunity. Patricia takes time to educate her clients with data, not hype, and her expertise and candor is invaluable. Without Patricia and her real-estate ninja skills in our corner, we would have never been able to buy our first home. She is the only agent I will ever work with and I cannot wait for our next adventure.
My wife and were first-time home buyers and were pretty overwhelmed trying to navigate the competitive Arlington VA real estate market. Patricia was tremendous in helping us find our new condo. Her knowledge and experience was extremely helpful during negotiations, and we felt very well-represented throughout. We got a great price and had a great experience overall. I highly recommend Patricia and we look forward to working with her again whenever we choose to move again.
Patricia was a joy to work with. The Northern Virginia is a very competitive area and was very intimidating for me as a first time home buyer. Patricia was very diligent, answered all questions. Helped me find exactly what I was looking for. Five star experience!
She immediately responded to my request explaining the complete process and financing options. She is very professional and responsive to the clients needs.
She is very knowledgeable and will make sure that everything is clear and understandable. Patricia will guide you through the process and make it look to easy to be real. You will notice that she is always one step ahead and usually has all of the answers
She is personable, trustworthy, experienced in the local area, supportive, super-responsive and an advocate for her clients. She really couldn't have been any better.
A consummate professional, Patricia was invaluable to me at every step of the way, helping me find and purchase the perfect home for myself and my 5 yr old daughter. When we first met she took the time to listen to me and understand what I was looking for. She's passionate about her work and truly cares about her clients, and I cannot recommend her enough!
