Get to know Patti Lyles
TOPS SALES ASSOCIATE for Century 21 Showcase, REALTORS®
I hope you'll read the rest of this because it hurts me to write my own press copy.
Donald Trump can't fire me, even though I have been on the Apprentice show every season* Voice-over work
Howie Mandel made a Deal or No Deal offer with me. . . everyone won!* We did a deal together
Arnold Schwarzenegger said "I'll be back" Well it's true! he always comes back to me* We did a deal together...
I got more TV air-time this year than Kim Kardashian did* I do Voice-over work for major brands.
PATTI LYLES has really done all of these things because she had experienced an enchanted life in the music industry as a professional singer for over 30 plus years. Starting at the age of 12 when I did my first commercial for COCA-COLA. Remember "I'd like to teach the word to sing..." I'm the freckled-faced girl with long dark braids and a big toothy grin, holding up a coke bottle on top of a mountain. I did more memorable TV commercials and San Francisco musicals during high school.
Most of my career I worked for DISNEY. I sang and danced for so long my red hair began to turn grey. So I retired from Disney and became a full-time REALTOR, where age is a feature - not a bug. I still do voice-overs and jingle work for movies, commericals, and radio. My list can go on and on. Snooze.... stay with me now. Your Question is: But how does any of this stuff benefit anyone now?
My Answer: the government wanted to get their hands on the money I had made in the entertainment industry. So I started investing into Real Estate, big-time. In the 80's I bought property all over Los Angles and surroung areas, the West Coast and Pacific Northwest. I started "flipping" these properties for profit 2 decades before that term became a household word. So much so, in the mid 80's the DRE demanded I become a licensed Agent.
How many real estate agents can say they have bought and sold more than 40 homes that THEY HAVE PERSONALLY OWNED? Me, Me....I can! Unlike other Agents, I've mastered the role of THE BUYER & THE SELLER. I've played the role of Buyer, Seller and Agent so many times I've become a solid mass of scar tissue. Riding out 2 decades of ups and downs in this awesome industry. This should make a big difference to you and any Agent that comes up against me in a comparison test. Odds are I'm the only agent you'll ever know whose "performed" on both sides of the Real Estate table.
NOW. . . As you can tell when you meet me -- I've morphed into a fat, middle-aged, yet very approachable, well-seasoned real estate consumer. I'm getting Top billing as a Veteren Realtor these days, who will get a standing ovation from you, when you choose me to represent you, your friends or family members.
I'll even sing "I FEEL GOOD" and perform at closing at the title company.

Testimonials for Patti Lyles
Divorce went more smoothly because she had the skills to put out fires before they started. If you and your spouse are divorcing, she is a specialist, which can be very helpful. In my case, I hired a real estate agent who sure was sympathetic to my plight. She was up on all of the legal and tax issues that divorcing couples face, and how these can affect property transactions. She can help you make decisions such as buying out your spouse or selling during divorce.
Short Sale went off with a single issue and was real quick.
Patti you are a Real estate ROCK STAR

"I got overwhelmed by everything. Too much, Too soon. She "made" me buy it. She aided me through a rough time like a Doctor. I got a deal on this place and my girls and I love it."

"Patti found the best home for the best price! The place wasn't on market but she knew it was the right one for us. So she approached the owners and 6 months later we are happily living there."
"She gave us excellent advice on buyer’s strategy in a multiple offer market. We got the house because she had the skills most agents lack. Attention to details & through."
