Arroyo Grande, CA 93420
In my experience with Pat I would like to say she is professional, up front in telling you what she expects from you as a seller, and follows thru with every detail on her end. I found my experience with Pat, from the first time I called her for a professional opinion for pricing of my home to what I could do to make it show better to close of escrow, to be the Realtor I had wished for. I did interview other Realtor's, and after months of thinking who would do the best job for me, it hit me who that person was, Pat Okura. She had been sending me this magazine, American Lifestyle, since the first time we met. I thought this much dedication to her job was above anything expected of a Realtor and as my Realtor she showed the same dedication in selling my home. Most important of all, she sold my home in one day. I can't say everyone will get that result, but for me this was a very positive experience. My highest recommendation. Edyie Lopez
Pat - Over the years, we have had the opportunity to buy and sell a number of homes and have been fortunate to have had competent brokers handling the transactions. But, in the recent sale of our home in Cypress Ridge, your proved yourself to be a “cut-above.” Circumstances occurred that required a vast knowledge of the real estate process and law, sophisticated communication skills, a display of ethics and unbelievable patience and good judgement. Your vast experience, your ability to navigate with a steady hand, your sage guidance and good humor made you the very best in our eyes. We completely trusted you and your judgement. We never worried about making “wrong” decisions, because you always gave us the benefit of your experience and thinking. You had a constant presence, you followed up on every possibility; the sale was the result of your persistence and creative thinking. Real estate transactions have gotten increasingly complex and we are so grateful to have someone of your caliber at the helm of ours. We will always remember your positive attitude, your willingness to do what it took, your generosity of spirit, and your grit when it was required. The best compliment we can give you is a good referral;. be assured that we have, and will, use our voice to sing your praises. Thank you for all you did for us. Pete Schipa and Peggee Davis
This is an email that we received from a couple moving from Auburn, CA:
Wow, it is hard to believe just over a week ago we became the home owners of this amazing and beautiful home. We feel so blessed and so grateful. Thank you so very much for everything you did to help us make this our forever home. You and Alison were truly exceptional. Most of all, we felt very supported throughout the process. You didn't push or rush us and you were extremely proactive. The Wednesday the other house closed, we were absolutely exhausted from the stress of that situation. Imagine how delighted and cared for we felt after our long drive here when we checked into the hotel and there was a lovely welcome bag. Again, so thoughtful of you and Alison. We LOVED working with you both. We can't thank you enough for all you've done to help make this dream come true for us. Pete & Liz Christoffersen
There are not enough stars available to rate Pat with! Pat brought us a buyer for our home, showed, and helped us buy another home. She masterfully kept the whole deal together and closed both escrows on time. Her attention to detail is impressive and promptness and availability keep the stress levels much lower. Picking an agent for me is now a no brainier! Tom Casement
Any student of business soon learns that the best source of new business is satisfied customers. We are writing this to tell you that you have in us very satisfied customers! We chose you as realtors for the recent sale of our home, and a major part of our decision was that you were on the Cypress Ridge property more that others and more visible to potential buyers. The result was a quick sale to a buyer whose needs were suited to the property, and we believe the sale was a result of your correct perception of needs and your diligence in adhering to correct procedures. We are well satisfied with our decision to select you and highly recommend your services to anyone in the same circumstances. Bill & Jan Smith
Pat - I just wanted to thank you for your professionalism throughout the purchase for Chet and Cindy. I was very impressed how you stuck with it to make it work for them with the seller when it looked like the deal was going to fall through. Above all though I was very pleased to see how their interests were #1 at all times and how responsive you were at all times. You were definitely an asset to them and the whole transaction. Thank You! Bob Veldkamp, Murphy Home Loans, Inc.

When we asked our friends, Sandy & Gerald, who they would recommend as a real estate agent on the Central Coast, without hesitation they gave us Pat’s name. She was accommodating, did not pressure us, and stayed within our price range. Pat tried to preview all properties so as not to waste our time looking at homes we wouldn’t be interested in. When we finally found our “Beach House”, Pat walked us through every step of the buying process, answered all of our questions and made the overall experience easy and pleasant. We have the utmost praise for Pat Okura and South County Realty, and will recommend her to all of our friends looking to buy on the Central Coast. Ken & Linda Stark
My husband and I have been buying and selling real estate for approximately 40 years. I worked with Real Estate agents during my professional career for over 30 years and knew what we were looking for in an agent. Pat possessed those qualities and then some. She has knowledge, integrity, professionalism, great communicative skills and unbelievable patience. She worked tirelessly until she found us the perfect house for our family. Even though it was a Short Sale she made it the smoothest transaction we have ever experienced. She worked diligently on our behalf until the transaction closed. We have recommended Pat to a number of friends and are confident that they will be pleasantly surprised by her service and attention to detail. This house has been a great investment and a joy for our family. Gerald & Sandy Gallagher
Monica and I had been looking for a home in the Pismo Beach area for a few months when we met Pat Okura. Pat's professional knowledge, both of the area and her in depth real estate know how is what made the difference for us. After almost a year we found a property and before we knew it the offer was written up. Between our VA loan and this being a short sale, it was not an easy road, but Pat would say, "Hang in there, and let's see what happens." Pat continued to be present in every way. She contacted her resources and found contractors and inspectors for us. There was a large tax lien on the property and Pat worked feverishly with the listing agent to have this removed in time for closing. We now own a beautiful home in Pismo Beach thanks to Pat's efforts. I would recommend Pat Okura to any future homeowner looking for a Realtor who is cutting edge and above the rest. This is our sixth home and I've never had anyone work as hard as Pat did for us. Randy & Monica Nilsson
