First Time Home Buyers
This was our first re-location since we moved to the USA from Scotland and we were a bit unsure and 'unsteady on our feet' about the ins and outs of selling our home here in Houston. We needed someone who could guide us through the steps and feel very fortunate to have found Sonja . She has always returned any calls promptly, and if she couldn't answer it at the time she would e-mail ,or call back the same day. Thoughtful and aware of the real stresses of selling/moving home, she managed to use her ability and professionalism to make us feel the most important client she had and for that I am truly grateful and am very happy to recommend her as a realtor.

Reggie and I wanted to thank you for such a great experience during the process of selling our home! You did such a great job with easy communication, quick response time and keeping our best interests at heart. We were truly blessed to have you represent us! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. I hope many more clients take the opportunity to have you represent them!
Take Care, Michelle Kennedy
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the incredible service you provided me. From the very moment you listed the house you went above and beyond the "call of duty" to make sure I would be able to sell the house as quickly as possible.
I appreciated your ongoing communication to let me know the progress of repairs before putting the house on the market, your solutions to problems that came up with utility companies, working with other agents, the title company and of course THE QUICK CONTRACT AND CLOSING!
Thank you Sonja, I really don't believe I could have done it without you! Please use me as a reference anytime.
Warmest regards, Sandi L. Hamm DDS
I want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate everything you've done with promoting and selling my house. I wish I could come up with an expression more than thank you, but words escape me. THANK YOU! You have been such a pleasure to work with. The sale of my house was a challenge, to say the least, but you did it!! Your professionalism, knowledge, excellent marketing skills, constant communication and positive attitude far exceeded my expectations.
Eddie and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. For all that you did to make this so much easier than I know it would have been with anyone else !! You were Eddie's immediate choice as soon as he met you, and you weren't the only realtor he met with !! As soon as he met with you he knew you were the one !! You went that extra mile, everyday !! It never went unnoticed or unappreciated !!
My husband and I had a long distance estate to handle. Us being in Ohio and the home for sale in Houston. We really didn't know how we were going to do this !!! Working with Sonja, made a very rough situation, easy and smooth. She helped us out in every way possible. She went above and beyond her call of duties to do what we needed to get the home SOLD ! And she did ! She was always there when I needed her or had a question. We talked everyday and she always got to the bottom of what I needed, whether it was a question or a favor. She was there ! I know I wasn't her only client, BUT she made me feel as I was.She was prompt and efficient with every aspect of anything that needed done with the sale of this home !!
I would highly recommend Sonja for any real estate transaction that you are considering a realtor for. She is very professional, efficient and gets the job done. You will also find a friend in her as I have.
Thank you SO much Sonja ! Eddie & I really appreciate all you've done for us. You made a very tough situation so effortless and we couldn't have done it without YOU !!
Thanks again !!
Eddie & Dana Akron,Ohio
"Sonja was understanding, compassionate, and always made herself available to answer our questions and concerns no matter what time we "bugged" her. We had complete trust and confidence in her throughout the sale of our home. She also went above and beyond what any realtor had to do by hiring a handyman to fix our door and trying to help us find wonderful homes for our dogs. Sonja became more than a realtor to us, she became a friend."

"Sonja Patterson is one of the most professional and affable person I have ever met. She has made homebuying such an easy and stress-free process! What impressed me the most was her dedication to getting the job done. Whenever I had a question, she would reply with an answer right away...even at 11:00pm! I really enjoyed working with Ms. Patterson. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Houston area. -Neil Chico"
Heesook Cheon said, "She was the most excellent realtor I ever met. Working with her was very enjoyable as had focused on entirely what I was looking for. She was very polite and responded immediately even in weekend. I felt like she was my best friend who was really concerned about me. She let me know what I must know in advance so that I could prepare or think. She was responsible and reliable whom I could totally trust."
Alex and Maria Perez said, "We are very lucky to have met Sonja. She has exceeded our expectetions as our realtor. We know that if we ever need the services of a realtor, We will not hesitate to call her and work with her again. Maria & Alejandro Perez"
Kenneth and Vicki Baldwin said, "I can't imagine working with anyone who would be more conscientious than Sonja. She also represented OUR best interests as her clients, at all times. We will definitely recommend her to others."
Sabrina and Jerry Harborth said, "You will not find a more attentive, client oriented Realtor than Sonja. That along with her knowledge about marketing makes her a winner. Its icing on the Cake that she is such a sweet person to deal with. She spent almost a full year with us first buying a new home, then selling the old one, and was a trooper all the way !!! Even during stressful times she was great dealing with both sides. Highly Recommended - wouldn't use any other Realtor ! "
Fran H. said:
"We were extremely fortunate to retain Sonja Patterson as our realtor. She actually listened to what we wanted and found the perfect "house of our dreams" at a price we could afford. She went on to guide us through an extremely tedious and difficult contract negotiation to complete the sale of our old home. Throughout a 6 month timeframe she was unfailingly professional, supportive, honest, hard-working, positive, courteous, and responsive. I can not say enough wonderful things about her.
Jacqueline and Monty K.
Sonja went above and beyond what is expected of a realtor. She took care of our needs almost as if we were family members! Even after the final signing of papers she checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. Amazing service! Would whole-heartedly recommend her!
Claudio Martinez said, "Great communication, Sonja take cares of everything so from my side that helps me a lot. She is permanently providing me with updates and alternatives to improve the selling process. I've made the right decision getting her assistance on this. "
Nick Mawford said, "Excellent service consistently went beyond the call of duty to close the deal and has continued since we moved in to support and help. First Class"
