Wells Branch buyers
We absolutely loved working with Hal on finding our first home! We did not have much knowledge about the home buying process going into our search, but Hal walked us through every step and was available to answer any and all questions we had (and we had a lot). We felt extremely comfortable with him as our realtor, and we trusted his knowledge in several areas. We ended up needing to purchase our home during the pandemic. Home buying can be stressful on its own, but home buying during a pandemic has the potential to add an extra layer. Hal not only ensured our safety but also the safety of others. Due to Hal's insight and advice, we were able to close on the perfect home for our family, never feeling pressured or like we were settling. We are thankful to have worked with Hal, and thankful to now know him. Simply can not recommend him enough! - Kerry & Lance M.
Crestview & Brentwood couple
We’ve worked with Hal on both the buyer and seller side, and he’s exceeded expectations on all accounts. From his deep knowledge of the industry and Austin market to his unique ability to point out subtle nuances and factors that a less experienced eye wouldn’t catch when looking at potential homes, he’s been absolutely stellar. Hal is professional, reliable, and honest. We’ve worked with him for 10 years and 5 real estate transactions and have been nothing but satisfied. We recommend him hands-down. - Brian & Nichole R.
Hal is the consummate professional! All of the qualities you would desire in a real estate agent, Hal possesses: flexible, accommodating, reliable, patient (it took us two years), trusted advisor, calm presence. We were moving to Austin from out-of-state and didn’t know the details of the local market and Hal greatly assisted us through the process. We can’t recommend him highly enough. - Douglas M. & Dai N.
I can’t recommend Hal highly enough! As first-time home buyers, we knew that there was a lot we didn’t know about the process of finding and buying a home. From finding a lender to looking at houses, from making and negotiating an offer to inspection to closing, Hal took us through the process with knowledge, patience, and care (and a great sense of humor). We love our house and feel grateful to have had Hal to help us find it! — Chad B.
South Austin couple
We have known Hal for 15 years. Over that time, he has helped us with several projects, including selling our home and buying a new one when we recently downsized. He has always been the essence of professionalism, serving as a trusted and very capable consultant with our best interests in mind. We recommend him highly and without reservation. — Richard & Lauren C.
Round Rock family
Twyla and I both would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to you for the assistance you provided us with the selling of our house. Your knowledge and insight into what it would take for us to sell the house, at the price point we were looking for and within the time frame we hoped for, was dead on! Taking your advice on making the upfront investment to fix a couple of minor things and add some curb appeal paid off. The closing process was seamless and your ability to answer our questions assured us that we were not being exposed to any unnecessary financial risk. You can count on the fact that we will be recommending you to our friends and anyone else in our organization who will need to be relocating. — Mike & Twyla R.
Hal, you are simply an AWESOME guy to work with and we could not have been happier with the way you handled our rental property sale in May. Your advice concerning the listing price and how to prepare the property was RIGHT ON TARGET. That was an interesting listing strategy you suggested, and you absolutely NAILED the predicted outcome. As you predicted, we ended up selling the home for $7,000 ABOVE list price! We also appreciate everything you did that went far beyond our expectations in the handling of the transaction all the way to closing. We just wanted to thank you one more time for everything and we will continue to recommend your services to people we know. — Allen & Robyn S.
We really enjoyed working with Hal on the sale of our home. Throughout the entire process he far exceeded our expectations. Hal is a very dedicated, knowledgeable real estate agent, and helped us sell our home fairly quickly in a slow housing market. He really knew how to successfully market our home, helped us get a better than expected showings, and eventually a great offer. He personally handled our open houses, provided timely feedback and answers to our questions. We really appreciated all the time he spent with us to get the list price right, stage our home, and handle any issues right up to the closing on our home. Hal made the entire selling process easy for us, and we would definitely recommend his services. — Anne & John B.
Westlake & Steiner Ranch family
We had our first baby and needed more space. First, Hal helped us sell our old house in a week. We had 3 offers to choose from, all of which were above the list price (and more than we had ever anticipated getting)!
Then Hal took the time to really listen to what was important to us as we looked for a new home, and focused his search on properties that truly addressed our needs. He came up with some great options that we had not considered, and was patient as we worked through our choices. He helped us negotiate the price of our new home to a number that worked for us, and a time frame that fit in with the closing our old home.
Hal is knowledgeable, professional, timely in responding, and a pleasure to work with. If we ever need to move again, there is no doubt who we will call for help! — Sean & Betsy M.
Circle C family
Working with Hal was by far the best experience we’ve ever had when buying or selling a home. The level of service he provided was superior and he is very knowledgeable about the Austin housing market. His experience and professionalism allowed us to have a very smooth, quick sale of our home! — Janet & Randy P.
Seller in Northwest Austin & Lago Vista
Four years ago I became a widow and was left with a house that held 47-years of my family's life. The time to sell my house had arrived and I didn't know where to begin. My daughter and son-in-law recommended Hal Patterson, a REALTOR who had sold their property. Enter Mr. Patterson - a genuinely caring individual who helped calm my anxiety. Hal is meticulous in all he does, and thorough with market research & presentation materials. Within a few weeks he had secured the perfect buyer for my home. Two years later, I hired him to sell my condo by the lake. The staging with a panoramic view of the hill country & lake was breathtaking. It sold with multiple offers. Hal is cool, calm, and steadfast with a wonderful sense of humor. — Billie W.
