Viola and Patrick found us our dream home during a very competitive seller's market!
Had we not been with them, we would have never found our forever home! With Patrick's background in construction, I was able to ask him questions about houses we viewed and he was able to point out possible problems with houses, and explain what it would take to fix them. This really put my mind at ease. Viola's expertise showed with her ability to find my husband and I a house we both loved and suited both of our needs. Viola is an established, respected and trusted professional, who will look out for your best interest. There is nobody I trust more than her in the real estate industry.

Viola and Patrick were absolutely a pleasure to work with.
My spouse and I used Viola/Patrick to find and purchase our first home in Santa Rosa; and while it felt like a roller coaster ride in this very hot market (circa 2021/2022), Viola and Patrick were absolutely a pleasure to work with. They listened intently, respected our budget (and by extension our financial goals), responded promptly, and were instrumental in helping us navigate our first real estate transaction. Our search took us a couple months and in most cases Viola and Patrick were able to schedule showings the same day we requested them. They showed us properties which were relevant and which fit our criteria; never pushing our budget beyond what we discussed. That's something I've often heard other agents ignore. Patrick's knowledge in Construction was invaluable in evaluating which property's needed substantial work, help us understand what various big issues might cost to fix or remodel, details in home inspection reports we should pay attention to, and which older subdivisions often have certain types of issues we should watch out for (like serious foundation settling due to the soil). When we eventually found a property we were interested in putting in an offer on, Patrick's knowledge helped us understand which inspections we could confidentially wave to make our offer more attractive, and Viola's experience as an agent helped us settle on carefully crafted and attractive terms to get our offer accepted and avoid a bidding war. We were successful and within 24 hours our offer had been accepted. The next 6 weeks felt like a roller coaster with various issues coming up during Title. Viola and Patrick helped us carefully navigate through the deal while diligently protecting our interests and finances. They were absolute professionals and we have no regrets. For most people purchasing a home will be the most expensive transaction of their lives, it would be total insanity to use someone who lacks the kind of experience that Viola and Patrick have. For us, it's hard to imagine using anyone else in any future transactions.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful and attentive both he and Viola were.
Our Story- After months of discussions on moving out of state my husband and I finally decided to stay in CA. We were both born and raised in Sonoma County and most of our family is here. We understood that buying a home was going to be a challenge with the average median home price somewhere in the 6-7k range. What we didn't anticipate was how hard it would to find a realtor that would actively find us a home. A family member said to try Patrick Pedersen. I cannot say enough about how wonderful and attentive both he and Viola were. If I found a house I wanted to see he made it happen that day. They both stayed in phone contact almost daily. We appreciate this very much. Viola had told me she would call me one day for some information. Near the end of the day I got a call from Viola, she was in the emergency room and calling me to let me know she had not forgotten about me. Now that's dedication to your client! Again, both Patrick and Viola were very available

It was such a pleasure working with Viola Pedersen on the sale of my parent’s home.
Her guidance in maneuvering through all the requirements necessary in this sale was so valuable, and since I live five hours away in a different town, that wasn’t always easy. Communications were always prompt and the paperwork was always explained, making the whole process very seamless. I would definitely use her again for any future transactions, without hesitation.
Viola and Patrick are responsive, professional and knowledgeable.
We had a very complex situation where we were buying off-market and selling two other homes. They managed the complexity seamlessly and without issue and all three transactions went through because of them and the hard work they put in. I’ve now sold and bought multiple properties with Viola and Patrick, but this one was particularly special as it’s our families forever home and allows us amazing opportunities to spend time with those we love most, in a beautiful home. I can’t say enough about Viola and Patrick and am so grateful to them. I wouldn’t go to anyone else for my real estate needs.
Viola and Patrick did amazing work on our home purchase!
They were very knowledgeable, communicative, and seemed to genuinely have our family's best interests at heart. They went above and beyond throughout our entire purchase process, and took our son's medical needs into consideration to ensure that we would truly be comfortable in our new home. They made our home ownership dream come true with ease and excitement!- James & MaeViola and Patrick did amazing work on our home purchase!

What a great team!
Viola is not only a great ex neighbor and friend but a most thorough and expert Realtor also. We didn't hesitate to get her on board to help us sell our house. And having her partner and son Patrick in the construction business is an added plus to help with all the fix-its that needed to be done before putting our house on the market. What a great team! We would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking to get their house sold, in a market that is sometimes unpredictable. They keep on top of the listings and comparisons in the area and keep up with the trends that are current. A big thank you again to Viola and Patrick for seeing us through all the offers, paperwork and the “holding of hands” during this sometimes stressful process!!
Look no further. If you want the best, then hire Viola / Patrick.
They helped us sell our home and property with experience needed to make the right choices. To go above and beyond is just an everyday way of life for these two. They will help you every step of the way. You can not go wrong having Viola / Patrick as your agents. My wife and I feel that we have made new friends for life. We were just days from closing escrow when the wild fires took our home and everything in it. This was devastating for us and we were completely at a loss. Viola / Patrick helped us get through this and clear the land and then sell the property. If I ever need help with buying or selling I will always reach out to them. thank you thank you thank you!

Viola is prompt, professional, and incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market!
Viola helped us buy our first home in 2010. When we needed a larger home for our growing family, Viola gave us excellent advice on how to prepare our home for sale. It sold for more than we had ever dreamed! Viola was always available to promptly answer questions during the sale process. She also helped us find our new home, and we appreciate the network of professionals she works with who helped us with the inspections and loans. She offered excellent advice about putting in the offer on our new home. We have been very satisfied with her service through three transactions, and we recommend her to our friends and family without hesitation!

Viola is amazing!
House buying can be stressful and trying to find a home that you envision as the perfect fit for your family can be a bit overwhelming. With Viola's help and expertise, the process was painless and she helped to make us feel comfortable about the biggest purchase of our lives. We were able to find a home that we loved - giving us the opportunity to find the place we wanted to create lasting memories for our family. I highly recommend her to anyone new to the process, who is looking for someone they can trust!
Viola is my go-to realtor for all things real estate.
It doesn't have to be buying or selling, but if it is, she is the only one I use. There have been six occasions that I have worked with Viola and her knowledge is amazing. Her contacts reach far and wide for anything real estate. When you close, she is there for any questions that may arise. I remember once she had the language re-written because it wasn't clear. If she is not 100% positive about something in the area or a construction code for example she has the resources on speed dial to get the exact answer. That is FULL service.
