Patti Cotter

Patti's Story

Putting ‘Uncommon Effort’ into common tasks; finding a way to do things just a little better; asking more of one’s self than anyone could possibly expect. This is excellence defined. It’s an attitude - an approach to life.

Throughout her life, Patti Cotter has worked to help others - encouraging them to strive for more. Patti first taught pregnant teenagers who were unable to attend regular high school. She also taught high-risk youths. The experience of making a difference in kid’s lives motivated her to go into private practice as a licensed Family Therapist.

Happily married since 1973, Patti and her husband, Jeff, first fell in love with the Santa Ynez Valley in the late 1970’s. Its magical combination of rural charm, spectacular beauty, wonderful weather and friendly people convinced them that this was the place to live and raise their children.

An accomplished equestrian, Patti has always enjoyed competing. But her husband and children, Meig and Marlo, are her greatest joys.

Looking for a way to combine her strong business aptitude and the people skills she learned during her time as a teacher and a Therapist, Patti discovered real estate. She started in the industry in 1988 with a very simple philosophy: Know your market; know your clients; be more concerned about your clients’ needs than make a sale.

This philosophy has been the key to her success. From the beginning, she took the industry by storm and now ranks among the top real estate professionals in the Santa Ynez Valley. Her former clients have proven to be her greatest natural resource - giving her referrals and repeat business.

Patti’s approach to real estate is different. She chooses to only work with a limited number of clients at any one time so that she can provide them the thoughtful attention and excellent service that they deserve.

Her knowledge of the Santa Ynez Valley real estate market, business acuity and outstanding customer service-record make her your best choice for excellence in real estate. Call Patti today and let her guide you to a lifestyle of excellence.

Patti’s Commitment to you: "I love this business and the opportunity to help people to meet their real estate and investment needs. I actively listen - to understand what my clients want. Then I educate – regarding all possible options. And, then, I let people make their own decisions. There’s never any pressure. My clients’ special needs are my number one priority.".
