I love helping people accomplish their real estate goals! My clients tried selling their beautiful homes themselves, but after several showings resulted in no offers, they asked me to represent them.    I count it a privilege to assist sellers in "getting the word out" and exposing their homes to as many prospective buyers as possible.    Congratulations to my sellers who are now under contract and set to close before the month's end!   Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage ServicesTEXAS REAL ESTATE COMMISSION CONSUMER NOTICESonja Patterson, Broker AssociateKeller Williams Brazos Valley2801 Earl Rudder Fwy SCollege Station, TX 77845Cell: 713.303.9463  Office: 979.693.9100sonjap@kw.comwww.har.com/SPattersonView past client reviews HERE

I LOVE seeing the look on buyers' faces when they have found "the one", that perfect home for them.  Recently,  I have had two buyers who wanted to purchase a home but they just could not quite qualify.   Perhaps, you or someone you know is in that situation and feeling discouraged.  I have good news!  A Financial Peace class is starting THIS coming Sunday, May 6 at First United Methodist Church in Bryan. Classes will be held each Sunday evening from 6:30-8PM and run from May 6 - June 24.  You can call the church office at 979-779-1324 to register or for more information!  Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services   TEXAS REAL ESTATE COMMISSION CONSUMER NOTICE       Sonja Patterson, Broker Associate Keller Williams Brazos Valley 2801 Earl Rudder Fwy S College Sta...
