“I am not sure where I would be without the 100 Days to Greatness Program! Juli and Nicolette are absolute rock stars. Taking this class is just what the doctor ordered for me. I am only 5 months in on my own but I have a system now and I am working it and I see real tangible progress. I am so excited to see what 2022 holds for me. I know I can reach out to Juli and Nicolette at any time and get just what I need. That kind of support is invaluable when you are taking on a new career. Take the course! Period. Sky's the limit!! ”

“I was already sold after speaking to several members of the Patterson-Schwartz team (Juli, Tim, Donna, Juan and Nicolette) just to name a few. However, I knew I that I made the right choice from day one of Successful Start! The knowledge, videos, and step by step information provided by everyone was and continues to be so beneficial for me as a new agent coming into this business. I honestly do not believe that I would have been able to take off with so much confidence had it not been for the Successful Start program and all of the continuous support offered by the entire Patterson-Schwartz family. Best decision ever!”

“I can't say enough about the support I've received since joining Patterson-Schwartz. When I was in search of a brokerage to call home, I interviewed with several companies. I am convinced on that daily that I joined the best one! From day one, I've felt like I'm part of a family. Their amazing Successful Start program lays such a strong foundation for new agents, let alone the plethora of online training that agents are given. In addition, the company brings in experts from all fields for on-going trainings so agents are consistently learning from the best in the business. Between the brokers and more experienced agents, there is ALWAYS someone you can ask when you have a question. If you're looking for a brokerage that prepares you for real life Realtor life, offers endless support and gives you not only the tools but the confidence to succeed, look no further than Patterson-Schwartz.”

“As a new agent starting a new and unfamiliar career during a global pandemic, saying I was uncertain, anxious, and filled with self-doubt would be an understatement. Even with these feelings I had heard from multiple people that partnering with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate would be the best decision I could make and they were right. From the first time I met my soon to be broker to my first conversation with the career development team I was in awe of how welcoming, knowledgable, and professional every member of the team was. Every session of Successful Start was engaging, informative and honest. The team brings in content area experts to support the material which also gives new agents a chance to meet members of all departments. I learned so much from the initial Successful Start classes but the benefits don't end there. Every member of Patterson-Schwartz is an open book and available resource. I have taken advantage of every opportunity possible as I begin my career and feel so grateful that my agency provides so many opportunities to learn and grow. I feel light-years ahead of where I expected to be this early in my career.”

Kyle Graves

“The knowledge imparted during these sessions has been the backbone of this wonderful career I've just begun. The enthusiasm, patience and kindness with which Juli and every single instructor delivers the information is without equal. This career can be rather insular in nature, but the people I went through class with are a support system and source of continued learning. So with Patterson-Schwartz, you get 1) top-notch managers and colleagues in the office to support you and answer questions; 2) the leadership team and thorough materials of Successful Start; and 3) the group of people you bond with in class become a source of ongoing mentorship, regardless of which office everyone lands in. Well done, PSRE, well done!”

“Patterson-Schwartz takes the onboarding of new agents seriously - and in a fun way! Their Successful Start program is the reason I chose Patterson-Schwartz as my brokerage. Their dedicated team of professionals and the network of associates they rely on hold themselves to a high standard of excellence. If a brand new agent is considering which brokerage to choose, I'd encourage them to take a look at the Patterson-Schwartz Successful Start program and compare it to what other brokerages are doing to onboard their new agents.”

“I can't say enough good things about Successful Start! As a new agent coming out of pre-licensing, most of us have a sense that you are on your own and it's time to fend for yourself. Choosing to participate in Successful Start was the best decision ever! The amount of support offered to us by the whole organization: writing our bios, professional head-shots, meeting all the pros we would be working with in the near future, touring offices and homes on the market, teaching us how to write contracts and preparing us for listing appointments, and bringing in senior agents to share keys to success. This class gave me a ton of confidence and tools to get me started in the business. Having spoken to former classmates who joined other brokerages with promises of getting them started, there is no doubt in my mind our Successful Start program goes above and beyond what anyone else has to offer. While starting is slow as a new agent, I find myself leaps and bounds ahead of others due to my opportunity to participate in this program. As a result, I find myself endorsing this program on a regular basis to all agents!”

Yuliana Goldin-Dunn

“I’m really glad that I had the opportunity to join Successful Start program. I found it to be very insightful. It was extremely worth while and actually tied lots of the previous stuff together. The material provided by Juli, Nicolette and many of Patterson-Schwartz colleagues, was delivered with an extraordinary high level of passion and enthusiasm. It was very professional, knowledgeable and communicative.”

“PSA has a great balance of support versus freedom. Brokers and managers are always more than happy to help and I have experienced that same attitude with my fellow agents as well. One key grants me access to all of the offices which is great for a contractor like myself that is always on the road and in different parts of the county. The initial training and on-going training are top notch. This company is jam packed with awesome people that love to help and love to succeed. ”

“Patterson-Schwartz is a family. They go above and beyond to help any and every new agent in succeeding, and give them plenty of resources to be a star within the company. I highly recommend doing business with them, and highly recommend their educational experience, and real estate agents.”

Erin Dodd

“Due to their excellent reputation, I knew Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate was where I wanted to be long before I even began pre-licensing class; however, it wasn't until I joined PSA and started their Successful Start class that I understood the why behind the reputation. PSA makes a strong investment in new agents so we are well prepared to start our business properly and begin our real estate careers as true professionals. The Successful Start sessions were interesting, informative, and all pertained to exactly what we should be doing as new agents. I feel confident starting my new career and I know that if I have any questions or concerns, my PSA family is right with me, ready to help me succeed!”

“The Successful Start program at Patterson-Schwartz is wonderful! Julie (and Nicolette, Juan and everyone else that helped plan), did a phenomenal job of making sure that the sessions covered almost anything you would need to know as a new agent. As a Coastal agent, Julie and Jason took time to make sure that we were included in all topics that were covered upstate. Everyone is so welcoming and inspiring; it's a great culture and family to be a part of!”

“Think you're ready to be a real estate agent after getting your license? Better think again. I just completed the Successful Start class and what I learned was invaluable and will go a long was to ensuring my success as a REALTOR®. The training was well presented, thorough and engaging.

“The Successful Start program provides invaluable information to those just starting out in the real estate business. The fast paced program is lively and thorough. Juli provides great insights into the business and brings in others from the Patterson-Schwartz company to speak about particular areas. This provides a clear advantage over other brokerage's training programs. I know I chose the right Real Estate company. I can't say enough good words about Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate and the ongoing support I receive every day. Successful Start is just a jumping off point but provides a solid foundation for your skill base.”

Susan Burton

“Really enjoyed the class! Well planned and definitely a great way to start. Juli did a great job keeping the group engaged and bringing in relevant guest speakers to illustrate the many sides of a real estate transaction. Nicolette kept things running smoothly behind the scenes and definitely deserves a shoutout. One of my only issues was the chairs were a bit uncomfortable (probably to keep people from getting too relaxed) but my body felt like an accordian by the end of the session. I will be back in September. Thanks Juli!!”

“My experience has been AMAZING. Patterson-Schwartz has provided me with a great education and training to be the best I can be. I decided to join Patterson-Schwartz because I wanted to be guided in the process of real estate with all the tools that I need. Patterson-Schwartz has a Successful Start class that not only educated me on real estate with contracts, listings, CMAs, and so much more. They brought in mortgage companies, law offices, home inspectors and fellow agents who have been in the business to share their stories. I truly feel I joined a family business that gives endless support. I can not imagine starting a business without the training and people who I now consider friends that I met through Successful Start. I am very grateful for Juli and the Successful Start team.”

The marketing team is always coming up with innovative ideas and assists the agents so that we can succeed in our career. Thank you, Patterson-Schwartz! ”

“If you want to grow your business and yourself, Patterson-Schwartz is the agency to be associated with. The support is outstanding. You can always contact someone in all areas of the company, not only do they return calls but they offer to meet with you and assist in any way that they can. Having come from a "boutique" agency it is like being in two different worlds. Their computer system is top notch and offers many online marketing features such as email blasts to other agencies and the ability to create flyers. Also links to place an ad in the News-Journal. Patterson-Schwartz is continually working to better support their agents and their business.”

“I chose to begin my career in real estate with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate 27 years ago and it was the best decision I could have made. Patterson-Schwartz is like no other real estate company in the area. The company’s commitment to remaining a local community brand while still offering the highest level of service makes Patterson-Schwartz a unique company. The support I receive in the Patterson-Schwartz office is amazing… top-notch. The agents, even though we are all independent contractors, work together and support each other along the way. The administrative staff is exceptional, working hard and efficiently - yet always ready to celebrate something - setting the tone for a friendly and casual atmosphere. Marketing is always looking for and introducing new and innovative marketing tools to reach the public and promote Patterson-Schwartz and its agents. Technical support is readily available to solve any and all computer problems. There is unlimited access to training that sets us apart from other companies, along with continuing education classes offered all year long. Management is always available to provide guidance or help out with a potential problem – no matter how small or big. Patterson-Schwartz has gone above and beyond my expectations. I look forward to the future with Patterson-Schwartz.”

“I have been working at Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate for well over thirty years. During that time, there have been many changes to our local employment base, as well as several periods of economic slowdowns. However, one of the things that has not changed is the commitment of Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate to provide the best possible service to our clients and customers. If you do that through good times and bad, the company and its agents will thrive. The local ownership, their daily involvement in the business, the easy access to them make our company seem very much like a family-run business instead of the largest real estate company in our marketplace. In addition, the tools available to us as agents, whether it be continuing education, technology support, a great marketing department, a supportive management team, or brand awareness, are second to none; all combine to make Patterson-Schwartz a great place to work.”

Lee Heck, Associate Broker

“Joining the Patterson-Schwartz team was the best decision I have made in my real estate career. Their technology is top of the line. The management support is the best around, not only with their agents and staff, but also with their clients. They continually show their agents support as well as their community spirit and support. The connection between agents is a partnership like none other. I always know there is someone to help me if I need it. It is an awesome company to work for.”

“I love Patterson-Schwartz! It's a wonderful company that offers so much to the community from charity drives, sponsorships, etc., as well as expertise in real estate. I believe the services I'm able to offer my clients are extremely important because I want to give them the best. Patterson-Schwartz is a company that constantly reinvents itself & has a staff that looks for more ways to not only better serve the consumer, but the agents as well. For instance, the system that is in place for Realtors® to service the consumer gives us the ability to do everything from email blasting listing information to hundreds of agents at once or flier creating, to providing our clients with weekly marketing reports, customized searches & more! The consumer is also able to use the very user-friendly Patterson-Schwartz website, which unlike a lot of others, is consistently updated with current information. As a Realtor®, I rely a lot on my name & reputation. However, I must say, there are times when the customer is not familiar with me/my work, but knows the reputation of Patterson-Schwartz... and they instantly know they're in great hands! With trust being very important to me, that means a lot. Lastly, Patterson-Schwartz has a family atmosphere that unfortunately, is not too common anymore. From other Realtors® to the company CEO, you know there are people who cheer you on & genuinely care. It's easy to understand why Patterson-Schwartz has been voted #1 Top Workplace on more than one occasion - and I'm extremely proud to be a part of it.”

“I made the move to Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate in July of this year. I had been looking for a few months to move to a broker with a local office in the Bethany Beach area. When I saw that PSRE had recently opened an office, I contacted them immediately and knew from the very first meeting this was the right choice for me. The support I receive from my broker and everyone at the PSRE offices has been overwhelming! Our administrative, technical, and marketing support is over the top! A huge benefit to my listing clients as well! PSRE provides me with the tools, documents, and education I need to fully assist my sellers and buyers. I look forward to many years growing my business with this wonderful group of people by my side!”

Their endless belief of having the best agents in the area by providing complementary education through CE courses and David Knox training videos.

“I cannot say enough good things about Patterson-Schwartz. When I was considering which real estate company to join, I looked at multiple factors-the amount of support for a new agent, the availability of training, the accessibility to managers and the overall feel/vibe of the company. I could not have made a better choice!! Patterson Schwartz offers training every step of the way, and an extensive training program for new agents. I have gained so much hands on knowledge that immediately gets put into use. The CEO of the company knows everyone by name and sets the tone for a welcoming, motivating family atmosphere. Agents support each other and the administrative staff is simply the best. The managers are responsive and I have not ever felt that I couldn't approach them with a question, no matter how minor. Changing professions to start this adventure was a big leap for me, and Patterson Schwartz has made the transition seamless and easy. I am excited to get to work and thrilled to be a part of this firm! You can walk into any Patterson Schwartz office in the state, and know that you will be treated like family!”

“Before becoming a Realtor®, I worked in retail banking for just over 15 years. During my career I worked with amazing people who made it their business to ensure that I was being developed to achieve my full potential. An environment where people share their knowledge, rather than withhold it, fosters both growth and opportunity. This is why I chose to work with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate. I felt that this company was genuinely committed to my success since day one. My peers have never neglected to help when its been needed nor have they ever given the impression that I didn't matter. Regardless of which office you work out of, this is a family. I frequent several other offices besides my own, and the experience is always the same. Smiling faces happy to see me. This is what our clients also see. I've prided myself on the level of service I provide to my clients and always have. Therefore, as a customer myself, I expect to receive the same quality service from companies that I choose to work with. Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate is a name synonymous with QUALITY and SERVICE.

From how to hold a successful open house, prepare a proper CMA, house tours that help expand knowledge on the housing market/pricing and role playing which might sound silly but helped immensely. Once the program is over, there is still follow up in addition to the great management support! They never mind helping you! The decision to become a Patterson-Schwartz agent was the best decision I could have made!”

There is a infrastructure in place to support their agents with Technology, Marketing and Websites, along with making it simple to create CMA's, Email Blasts, MLS updates, Market updates, Quarterly Market Analysis, and offers agents the opportunity for in house continuing education classes. The company encourages their agents to utilize the support and staff to help build your business. What other broker out there would have the Senior V.P. Of Business Development and Corporate Strategy come out to your branch office on a Friday on her way home and work with Terry and I for over 2 hours! We were impressed!”
