Just To Introduce Myself

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Aadvantage Gold, 702-719-2100


Las Vegas sign


I am a small town girl with small town values.  These values carried over to my career in real estate.  I believe in being honest and upfront not only in my personal, but my business life.


I started in real estate in the 70's.  Before that I sold cars.  I was one of the first women to go into auto sales.  But, real estate is, and always will be my first love.  If I would never make another dime in this business, I would still do it because it's in my blood.


My career in real estate began  in the 70's in Pittsburgh, Pa.  Inflation was rampant at the time.  Interest rates were at almost 17% , so I laugh when people complain about high interest rates.  We moved to Las Vegas in 1995 because of the many opportunities it provided to advance our careers.  It took awhile to get used to the city life,  but now when I go home I notice how much my hometown has gone downhill compared to Vegas where everything is rebuilt and new.


In 2002 I met Dolf DeRoos and Gene Burns, two avid real estate investors.  They liked the way I did business and the investment strategies that I used , and I became thei buyer's agent for their "52 Homes In 52 Weeks" adventure.  I then became Pat Yoest alias Katy Simmons in their book of the same title. 


The real estate market has undergone many changes over the years, and I have seen many peaks and valleys.  What's going on now has happened before, except this time there are regulations to prevent a more serious disaster.  My heart goes out to the many people who are losing their homes and jobs to this economy.   Hang in there, there will be an answer.


The Pat Yoest Team is experienced with a down market, loss mitigation, foreclosures, and short sale negotiations.  We have a list of buyers and investors waiting for the right home.  We hold seminars for buyers and sellers to educate them about buying, selling, and marketing a home in this market.  Please feel free to contact me personally if you need help with real estate related subjects, or feel free to visit my website.  www.nevadainvestmenthomes.com
