Pat Stack

What Our Clients Say

When I looked for a selling agent I required two key characteristics: a successful multi-year track record for sales in Northern Virginia, and an extensive list of trusted vendors that I could count on to make significant, multiple upgrades to a 1970s Colonial in Oakton.

Pat strongly delivered on both counts. She and her associate Sue guided me in selecting upgrades that would add value to the property and steered me clear of unnecessary changes. They were always available when I had questions or concerns. Pat and Sue's professionalism allowed me to focus on the house upgrades, and not be concerned about marketing or selling activities. Their recommendation for stager paid off in spades - the final look of the house for market was terrific.

I was thrilled to sell the house in 4 days for 20% above asking price. I have already recommended Pat to my friends who are looking for agents.

Dear Pat

I would like to thank you and Kathleen for making the process of selling the home we lived in for almost thirty years with a true feeling of support. Your approach from the very beginning went above and beyond. We appreciate all the help and expert advice you have put into making this sale happen with professionalism and knowledge.

Thank you very much
Judith and Duke
We are finally settling into our new home and we are very happy with it. Thank you so much for your help throughout the process of buying our house! You were outstanding to work with. Your knowledge and experience were exceptional. Even through a competitive housing market, you made us feel comfortable and at ease. We were also impressed by your responsiveness and attention to detail. Hope you have a lovely holiday season, and a happy New Year!

Dear Pat,

Kathy and I wanted to express our appreciation to you and your team for your outstanding job in selling our house. Most importantly, you sold our house in a reassuringly transparent process at a price well above expectations. Brava!! We couldn’t be happier!

Having interviewed several other real estate agents, you were an easy and immediate choice for us after a meeting with us in which you demonstrated a deep knowledge of the local market, a keen sense of strategy and timing and an easy familiarity with the various questions we had. We appreciated the advice your staging consultant provided and the regular check-ins with your assistant Kathleen as the process progressed. In the first weekend on the market when we received a high number of offers at prices well above our asking price it was obvious your counsel and strategy were paying off handsomely.

We are grateful for all your time and patience with us. After working with you we can absolutely say there isn’t another real estate agent in the DC area we would rather work with. Many thanks again!

Tim & Kathy
Dear Pat,

I cannot thank you enough for the smooth sale of our home! From start to finish, everything was handled with excellence and professionalism. Naturally, downsizing is an emotional and stressful event but you and your team handled everything in such a way as the sale was actually a painless experience. It was great to have a calm, steady team with us.

The marketing plan was in place, and working, very quickly with a terrific brochure and exposure in all the right places. We were so happy to have interest on the first day that the house went on the market, which resulted in the extremely fast sale of the house. You set the price perfectly and we were ecstatic about our final sale price. - over asking!

We look forward to working with you again and we highly recommend you and the team to anyone who is ready to sell their home, or buy another.

Sue Cerbie of the Pat Stack team, was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and diligent in ensuring all the necessary details were accomplished at the appropriate times and well before closing. The fact that our closing was an uneventful affair speaks volumes about how Pat and Sue addressed every detail before closing day.

We chose Pat and her team to represent our house and we have never regretted it. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

We engaged the Pat Stack team as the realtor for our home in January of 2017. We owned our home for 21 years, and were not accustomed with the process. While working with Pat, we can sum up the experience in 3 words. Pat was right. Pat brought in experts for showing and preparing the house for sale. Pat was right. Pat guided us on the proper time to put the house on the market. Pat was right. Pat guided us on the price point for our home for a quick sale, and the highest return. Pat was right.

Robin and Victor Murphy

We’ve had the privilege of working with Pat Stack on both sides of a real estate transaction – the sale of our home in Oakton, and the subsequent purchase of a home in Loudoun County’s horse country. In both instances, Pat’s expertise in understanding the local real estate market, coupled with her professionalism as a real estate agent, led to very satisfying outcomes for our family. Her tireless effort in marketing our home to prospective buyers was exceptional, and led to multiple offers in an otherwise soft real estate market. Of course, her efforts did not end with the sale of our home, as she and her team were instrumental to our success in finding our current residence in Loudoun County. With both transactions, Pat’s negotiating skills allowed for not only quick resolution of contract terms, but also for smooth and uneventful closings. We could not have experienced a more knowledgeable, dedicated, and results oriented real estate agent with whom to place our trust, than Pat Stack. In what is likely one of the most important financial transactions families ever face, it is comforting to know that you are represented by the best, and someone who will place your interests and needs first. To put it bluntly, lawyers do make great real estate agents, as so ably exemplified by Pat Stack.

The first thing Pat said when we toured the property that I wanted to sell was that we needed to do a staging. In the prior 6 months before meeting Pat, my previous agent had never suggested that to me. On the 48th day of relisting the property with Pat, we got an offer from a couple who were initially unimpressed with the vacant “unstaged” property prior to Pat’s involvement but obviously changed their minds on their second visit. Pat has a well-known brand name in and around that neighborhood and it took us a while to figure out that simply picking an upstart company’s lower commission fees and heavy reliance on hi-tech web tools and marketing gimmick was not going to cut it. Pat is a traditionalist at heart. Pat and her team produced a beautiful brochure that highlighted the positives of the property. She retained a staging company that was affordable and that transformed the inside of the house. Pat invited other agents for a sandwich at the property. The fact that Pat’s ultimate saleswomen approach could reverse a buyer’s impression is a testament to both her vast experience and supreme confidence.

My Husband and I found the perfect home when we connected with Pat Stack. Looking for something with a little age and character, Pat had the perfect listing. The deal almost didn't go through because of some complications, Pat was able to solve the problem even when it meant someone had to travel to Richmond to get things straightened out. Pat even made the financing easy, she had all the contacts we needed to easily finance the home. I have and will in the future recommend Pat to my friends.

I primarily dealt with Pat Stack and Sue Cerbie during my $1.7 million home sale in 2015 and was thoroughly delighted. After having used and fired a prominent firm prior to Pat Stack our family was on edge. Selling one's home can be tough and I cannot say enough about the calm and professional manner of these ladies. They were extremely hard working, punctual, intelligent, vigilant and at the same time, gentle with me especially as I was exhausted having 6 months on the market already under my belt. They made the process seamless. I would use them again and again.

Pat was absolutely the best realtor we have ever used! Outstanding professional selling our house which was unique and in a unique setting. We received a very good and fair price for our house and she was straightforward and helpful on all fronts dealing with the listing. I highly recommend her and her associates.

I worked with Pat recently on the sale of my mothers house. She was knowledgeable, responsive and found a qualified buyer for the property quickly. I would definitely use Pat again.

Pat Stack is a first-class realtor. During the course of selling our home, Pat continuously exceeded our expectations. She skillfully helped us through all of the stages - from advising us on how to prepare our home for market to helping us understand contract offers to supporting us through settlement. We experienced how Pat genuinely cares about her clients. Certainly selling our home mattered, but what was equally important was what took place. Selling a home can be an emotional undertaking and Pat Stack has the experience and demeanor to make it endurable for her valued clients. It is without reservation that my family recommends Pat Stack to anyone considering selling or buying a home.

My wife and I have been involved in several real estate transactions and dealt with numerous Realtors. Pat and her team were amazing from the very beginning and within minutes of our initial conversation we knew we wanted Pat representing our best interest. Her team of professionals took care of every aspect of selling a home and provided invaluable assistance. Pat kept us informed and we never had to wonder what was going on or who was doing what. Pat Stack is what every other real estate agent is working to become. She’s pure perfection.

We wanted to thank you for your exemplary service regarding the sale of our house and your shepherding us through the various steps and efforts that allowed us to achieve the successful sale of our home.

Unquestionably in selling a home, the initial focus is on the sale price and the ability to find a buyer. The price of the home was achieved as was the finding the buyer, the latter likely in our view arising from the efforts the two of you placed on the staging our home and making it appeal to the widest possible base of potential purchasers.

At the same time, my wife and I knew that contracting for the sale was only the first step. The two of you marshalled your efforts to make those steps – home inspection, appraisal, walkthroughs (to name a few of those steps) – as organized and efficient for us as possible.

At the end of the day, we chose Pat Stack due to her reputation in Oakton. Our decision was confirmed to be the right one! Moreover, with Pat bringing Sue into the effort, a winning team of professionals that we hoped would bring success occurred.

Thank you for all of your effort, your responsiveness and guidance during the process. No question exists that as opportunities arise, we will be recommending your services to others.

Thank you again.
