I am from NYC, and though I am not Irish, I was raised by Irish in the Bronx. In the last 4 years weve settled in the Austin area after relocating from California, When we arrived here, the first person I contacted was Patrick Hoag, a local realtor, who actually told me that we could take as long as we want, and he could touch base with us until we were ready. I talked to many realtors since then, and was wary as everyone wanted me to sign an agreement that if I found something they would represent me.
Patrick never mentioned that, or even applied pressure for us to purchase quickly. He did keep us informed about the market and every holiday wish us well. He is like a good friend at the point where we finally started looking. Since we are empty nesters, we did not need the custom 5 bedroom when we had kids, he understood. He helped us find a nice up and coming area outside of Austin for Angie and I to enjoy.
I have to say, The luck of the Irish was with us when we met Patrick. He is a good man, a great realtor, and now a friend.
Tony and Angie Pacheco P.S. We close in 3 weeks!!
