Patrick Florence’s Reviews
Peggy NewkirkI’m not a stranger to Real Estate transactions, but in all honesty, Patrick Florence was the most sincere and helpful agent I’ve ever dealt with. He is the best!
Kathryn YordePat Florence is an expert! He is seasoned, knowledgeable and decisive. He’s not only a real estate agent, he’s a life coach! Many times I would call him for a pep talk as we navigated buying a house during the pandemic, and every time he reassured me with solid advice. He never led us astray.
Matthew Rasmussen & Jennifer HayesPat was very knowledgeable and could not have been more helpful. He made selling our home easy. We have worked with him twice (listing two different homes) and will absolutely recommend him to our family & friends.
Victoria HessPat is a long time family friend and we have used him for several transactions. Selling your parents home is an emotional task to say the least, but we Know Pat, we Like him, obviously, and most of all trust him!!! He was just the best as usual during the process. Very empathetic and sensitive to the nature of the sale. We love you Pat! P.S. Jeanne and Edie were great as well!
Yonni & Heather GiatisThank you for everything! Patrick, you always answered our questions and eased our fears, we appreciate all you did for us and will strongly recommend you! Patrick was recommended to us by a colleague as we began our search for our first home. Patrick served as an excellent resource and is a genuine, honest person – we trust him implicitly. Patrick was always available to answer our questions and his flexibility worked well with our busy work schedule. When placing an offer, we looked to him for guidance and valued his opinion and we are incredibly happy with our home! Even after we moved, Patrick has reached out to see if he can be of further assistance. We strongly recommend Patrick and we were immensely pleased with his work ethic and kindness during the purchase of our first home!
Josh and PaulaThis is the third house I have purchased. Patrick is, by far, the best realtor I have used. First, he has a great knowledge of the market and is honest. He has a keen eye and evaluate potential properties honestly and points out positive attributes and flaws of these properties. You can see his experience when you walk prospective homes. The professionals that Patrick recommends our first class experts. From the home inspector to the lending company, they were all a great experience. Patrick is in no rush to get you to purchase a property. He is patient and wants you to find the right house for your family, even if this takes time. Our family is grateful for his honesty, professionalism, and kindness.
Dustin & Molly CordroyWe absolutely loved working with Pat!!! He is an awesome Realtor to work with. We couldn’t have asked for a better first time home buying experience. Pat kept us at ease and was so helpful every step of the way. Pat was very encouraging, always professional and courteous. Working with Pat was Great! From Patrick to Jeanne O’Keefe and Edie James selling my house was much less stressful than anticipated. Their guidance, advice and support they offered was the best. Patrick was here through it all with me. Patrick listens without judgement and always offers the best advice. I can’t say enough about him. Your team is very lucky to have him. He is one of a kind just like Edie and Jeanne.
Abby & Brandon GreenSuper with happy with our new home! Thanks to Patrick realize a dream we have had. Thanks to Edie for helping answer our numerous questions about closing and for helping us realize this dream as well. Words cannot express how happy Branden and I were with the Columbus Team. Patrick was amazing! He really helped us understand the whole process of buying a house, and when we were stressed he would help ease our anxieties. We will definitely refer our friends to the Columbus Team and we will come back to the Columbus Team in the future.
Chuck and Anna MilliganPat was great. Very helpful throughout the process. His help didn’t end at closing, as he has continued to graciously answer questions.
Rhonda B. & Ada B.I want to take this opportunity to thank you for such a wonderful experience in buying a home. I have lived in 7 markets and never had a Realtor provide the service, knowledge, sensitivity and compassion you have to my mother and me. When we met 3 years ago, you realized that I wasn’t able to purchase a home at that time due to trying to sell my home in another state. That didn’t stop you. You called on a regular basis, seeking out what my needs were and always touching base to see if you could be of help. And 3 years later, you helped us find and purchase a home with great and memorable experience along the way. Who could ask for more than that! I realized at that time, you were the Realtor for me. Your persistence, service and caring over 3 year goes unprecedented. You were so caring to my 85 year old mother (by the way, she has a crush on you). You made sure she was part of the process and provided transportation for her (when I couldn’t). The closing experience was outstanding! Not a problem at all. Your calm demeanor, knowledge, creativity and persistence is to be highly commended. You have followed up with me several times since the purchase to see how things are going and if all is well. The wonderful experience continues. I have told my story many times since you helped my mother and me buy a home. I have used our experience with you as a model for my managers and sales staff. You are the best and I am sure The Columbus Team values you as much as we do. My many thanks to you. I am and will continue to recommend you as the Realtor of Choice! Please feel free to use my comments, my name and phone number so that I may tell your current, potential and future clients that YOU ARE THE BEST and if they want a great experience for one of the single most important decisions in their life, that Patrick Florence should definitely be a part of it!
Ron & Andrea BartoschPatrick Florence of The Columbus Team went far beyond what we expected to help us find a house in our price range in the area we liked. He never made us feel like we were a bother even when we had seen tons of houses or when we had silly questions. He knows real estate and is very good at buying and selling houses! He is patient and dedicated with first time buyers!
Emma McCandlishPatrick was awesome. He helped put our minds at ease in purchasing our first home! We truly value and appreciate his opinion and knowledge. Thank you!
Maggie Foxarcher“Patrick Florence was extremely helpful and patient with us as we searched for a home in a very specific neighborhood. We appreciated his guidance, his responsiveness and his positive demeanor throughout the entire, sometimes stressful, process. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in Columbus.”
Gary9442 (via Zillow)Four years ago when we needed to find a home very quickly to move into, we contacted Patrick Florence regarding a home that had been on the market for several months & proposed a lease-purchase agreement. They were willing to work with us & the seller of the home which turned out to be a win-win situation for all party’s involved. Patrick & Sue were both very helpful & accommodating. We recently closed on the house and are very pleased with how the whole process went. We would not hesitate to refer other’s we know to Sue & her team!
Zillow User 52122439We met Pat through neighbors and due to his knowledge of the area we were looking to purchase in, chose him to be our realtor. As first time home buyers the process seemed daunting, but Pat walked us through how the process would go and was available to answer our (many) questions. My husband and I greatly appreciated his knowledge, patience, and advice. Pat was able to provide us with a list of reliable home inspectors and companies to use throughout the home buying process. Upon finding our dream home, we dealt with some communication challenges from our loan processor. Pat helped guide us through these challenges and we were able to close on our home. My husband and I couldn’t be happier in our new home!! I have already recommended Pat to friends and would not hesitate to do so in the future.
ktzigs (via Zillow)I have worked with Patrick Florence from The Columbus Team to purchase two homes now. Both times, he was so friendly and easy to work with. He was very patient and never pressured me to rush such a big decision. Patrick is very accessible, responsive, and knowledgeable. He was always willing to go out of his way to help me out, even after I had closed and moved into my new home. Edie James, the closing coordinator, was also very friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend The Columbus Team to anyone needing to buy/sell a home. They are all very professional and personable!
fraur0 (via Zillow)In a poor market for selling, Pat was very persistent. He found a tenant and managed my property for three years. With his advice during negotiation, I was able to sell my property for more than I thought I would be able to. I was very happy with the experience.
Anita Gastaldo (via Zillow)We contacted Patrick a year before we went on the market. We had questions about getting our house ready to sell and then selling, along with finding a new home. He was great every step of the way. I am very impressed with Patrick and the rest of the team was wonderful as well. If I ever have to buy or sell again, I will use them!
Robert and Emily HyattPat was an amazing guide as our realtor. He gave us his honest opinions about properties as we were house hunting and understood our need for our growing family, sometimes better than we did! I can’t say enough kind words about both our realtors. Pat & Sue were always available and very patient while we looked at houses. I would recommend The Columbus Team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
