“I came to Patterson-Schwartz this year as a transfer agent from another brokerage after 9 months and did not have the knowledge or expertise to write a proper offer or present a listing agreement to clients. I enrolled in the Successful Start program and within 3 months, my business exploded. I am now 8 months at Patterson-Schwartz and have reached “top producer” status! This program absolutely works and it paved my path as a realtor into a true success story. A special thank you to our brokers, our staff, our admin and other real estate agents at Patterson-Schwartz who provided outstanding educational resources to kickstart my career in this industry. Patterson-Schwartz is a stand out brokerage that deserves a 5 star rating in excellence and in customer service care. This company truly helps their agents to achieve their highest goals and to reach their highest potential. I would highly recommend Successful Start to any agent in the business looking to take their career to the next level and to make you the 5 star agent that your client deserves. ”

The training itself was invaluable, a lot of very useful information regarding all aspects of real estate plus a great introduction to all of Patterson-Schwartz's wonderful marketing tools!

The Successful Start Program was a big part of my decision and it did not disappoint! The five weeks of in person classes were SO valuable! If you follow the tracks they give you to run on and put in the work, I believe the sky is the limit! Thanks to Sal, Angela, Justin, Emma and everyone involved in the Successful Start Program!”

“What initially drew me to Patterson-Schwartz was their new and robust Intranet system! Given my background in education, it was obvious to me that the user-friendly system was built in a 360-degree view by an interdisciplinary team, and a tool I desperately needed in my business. Since becoming acclimated, I have really appreciated how unique this brokerage is with the people, training, support, and education. PSA truly has an empathetic “team” approach to success which encourages agents to excel! ”

“Having been a real estate salesperson a little over 2 ½ years, I wasn't sure how much duplication would take place in the Successful Start training program. The program has been insightful, resourceful and educational. It is giving me the tools, contacts and the confidence to be successful. Having come from a teaching career at the collegiate level, I see Justin as a dynamic professional that exhibits exceptional instructional skills with a robust and dynamic program that I am enthusiastic to use.”

Anne Peoples
May 26, 2023

“When I heard Successful Start would be five weeks of additional education following the 99 hours of my pre-licensing course, my first thought was that it would be duplicate information. However, the Successful Start Program is completely different than the pre-licensing course. It provides the tools you need to put your knowledge in practice and our PSA instructors make it fun and experiential. I can't think of new agents succeeding without it.”

“I have felt part of the Patterson-Schwartz family from Day 1! My particular situation was a little different in that I worked part-time while still holding a full-time teaching job for 4 years. That's never easy. This November, I took a leap of faith and decided to retire and work in real estate full-time and never looked back! The support I have received from my Greenville office has been incredible. Jennifer and Pam are always available for my many questions and happily help any way they can. The atmosphere around the office is always cheerful and people genuinely want to get to know you better. I think what I like most about Patterson-Schwartz is that they are a local company. They take pride in our community and continue to give back through various charitable events and service projects.

It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The staff is top-notch from the admins to the marketing wizards to the IT gurus. Every day I know talented people have my back. In addition, the top leadership is fantastic. They genuinely care about their agents and staff, give back to the community, and make ongoing solid business decisions.

“Patterson Schwartz Real Estate through their support helped Delmarva Aces North Baseball Team live a dream and have the time of their lives. See below the impact Patterson Schwartz Real Estate had on the experience provided to the young players. This from a parent of the Delmarva Aces North Baseball team. We just had an experience of a lifetime last week with the Delmarva Aces North Baseball team, and their families. What a week! The players, coaching staff, and families couldn’t give you a single detail of a single game played. But the laughs, the conversations, the friendships, teamwork, encouragement for each player that transpired, are memories the players will carry through life. Great job by the team and coaches. So much fun getting to know all the families better and see the kids bond. So many memories ...Awesome week in Myrtle Beach with Aces Upstate!

“I have only been involved with Cecil County Special Olympics for a little over a year. It is the highlight of my month to get together with our athletes and see how much they enjoy the activities. Our numbers have grown and as of this summer we have added golf and bocci ball to our activities. Bowling has been the favorite so far and we always have a good number of bowlers, and it doesn't matter if they are good or not they all are having fun and seeing each other. The Winter Dance was really a success. Food, games, and a lot of dancing, plus a visit from Frosty the Snowman. One of the athletes just went to the States Competition in Florida for basketball. They team came in second. A family picnic is planned for July with games music and of course food. Cecil County Special Olympics is growing every month and it is so special to see their smiling faces and watch them have fun.

I thought wow, if all the agents are this awesome, I want to be a part of that! It was a great decision and everyone really IS that nice! The Successful Start program gave me the tools and confidence I need to start my business. PSA is excellent that communication and has a distinct list of people for what ever I encounter.

“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.”

The enthusiasm, patience and kindness with which 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.

“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!”

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.”

“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!”

“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!”

They have always thought outside the box and implemented cutting-edge programs to support the agents, which in turn benefit our clients. Besides being a great place to work, I consider Patterson-Schwartz my family and know they feel the same about their agents & staff... respect and care for each other.”

“My experience with Patterson-Schwartz has been great so far. They provide me with the tools to succeed and use to my advantage and grow my own business. One of the many aspects of being successful in my career is having a great support system to fall back on when times get tough. PSA is a company that lets you create your model without making their goals, your goals. The autonomy this company gives you is unparalleled to other firms. When people have the freedom to make their own decisions and run their own business, they can be held accountable. I am looking forward to the future with PSA at my side.”

“Patterson-Schwartz offers education and experience unbeatable to any other broker in Delaware. The structured successful start program run by Juli Giles gives you the knowledge and skills to jump right into the business with confidence. Questions are always incouraged around the office by all agents not just the "newbies". Knowledge is power which is why Patterson-Schwartz is the leading real estate company in New Castle county.”

“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. I'm proud to represent this company and everyone associated with it.”

“The Successful Start program is top notch. The various topics and scenarios that are discussed help you when the time comes that you are on your own. 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!”

“Affiliating with the Patterson-Schwartz organization and culture you are simply not just being added to a company's roster. Being a PSA agent makes us not just part of a branch office but part of the Patterson-Schwartz family! 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!”
