Three ways to get started




"I wanted a Realtor who has known the market for a long time and is at the top of his game. I knew some Realtors, but I wanted better. Upon meeting Pat Kapowich at one of his real estate seminars, I saw his passion for the real estate business and knew that I had found my Realtor."






"I never had to worry about anything. When listing my home, he was very detailed orientated. Pat clearly knows his business backwards and forwards, and one can tell that everything is above board."






"He facilitated the sale of my parents’ home in Orange County, CA, yet this time by referring me to a local agent. When my father passed away in August, it was time to sell the family home of 54 years, where my sisters and I grew up."

I first met Realtor Pat Kapowich while he was selling one of my older sister’s properties. My sister has been has been very successful in Silicon Valley; I have absolute trust in her business instincts. Since Pat was her Realtor when she bought and sold all her homes, it was only natural that I would hire him, too."

Pat has a flare for the "old school" of hand shakes and hard copies with real signatures; while navigating modern technology without hiccup. If time allows, he will come get real signatures and hand the other agent a real "dead tree" hard copy. If the timeline is tight or other circumstance necessitates it, Pat has no problem with getting the job done over the internet with e-signatures and the like. 


Pat knows that in-person presentation can make a difference. In our market, where multiple offers with many of which will be all cash - no contingent, Pat successfully negotiated in a multiple-offer situation with our offer with contingencies. 


We had friends that had to make offers on 5 to 10 homes before getting one accepted. Pat helped us get off that emotional roller coaster fast. We got our home after we were out bid on 2 other homes. 


I have no reservation recommending him to others. He's easy to talk to. He's easy to communicate with, in person, on the phone, via text message or email. He's knowledgeable and dedicated."

I believe that this successful outcome was due to your vast knowledge of California law and your skill in dealing with the tenants with great kindness.  Your construction oversight was wonderful.  Your marketing of the property was superb.  On behalf of my institutional owner, we could not have been more pleased with the service you provided.  Thank you so much for your outstanding representation of us in this sale!


I hope to work with you again in the future Pat."
