Originally from Los Angeles, Patty made the move to Santa Barbara in 1990. She worked at a local accounting firm for more than ten years, then she and her family moved to the Santa Ynez Valley. That’s when she embarked on her real estate career. The change has proved to be a joy and a benefit to both Patty and her clients! Her 35 years of experience in direct client contact in banking, importing and accounting, has been a tremendous benefit in helping her clients to identify and solve issues that arise in the purchase or sale of real estate. She was also recently voted the “Best Real Estate Agent in 2011“ in the Santa Ynez Valley Journal.
Patty is very active in the local community, volunteering where needed. Some of her past accomplishments include serving on the Buellton Parks and Recreation Commission, fundraising for PAWS Park, chairperson for the 2005 and 2007 PTSA Auction and Dinner, which benefited both Oak Valley and Jonata School students.
Patty and her daughter are vital, active members of the Santa Ynez community who enjoy living and giving in the Valley. Patty’s son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter, who live in San Clemente, visit as often as possible.
Patty takes pride in being reliable, trustworthy and knowledgeable. As a member of the professionals at Village Properties, she makes it her mission to provide her clients with the thorough, personalized service that she would want for herself. A large percentage of her clients come from referrals from previous clients, which reflects upon the excellence of her service.
"Patty Armor has represented us three times in the past two years, one time as buyers and twice as sellers. She is truly a professional on all aspects of real estate and an expert on home values in the Santa Ynez Valley and beyond. She is funny and great to talk to. Every time we had an open house or a showing she was there and we had no worries. If we were away from home, she would meet our carpet cleaners, handyman etc; and let them in and lock up after they left. Every time some sort of paperwork was needed, she went above and beyond the call of duty by dropping paperwork off under our mat or picking it up later. She listened to us, offered smart advice, and made us feel at ease every time we worked with her. We would definitely recommend Patty to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in Santa Barbara County." - Tom and Laura Younger
"We worked with Patty Armor on two recent real estate transactions, the sale of our main residence and the purchase of replacement property. Even though the market was headed even further down, we were able to obtain near asking-price on the sale of our home. With Patty’s dedication and hard work, holding open houses, flawlessly preparing the necessary documentation and always being available when I needed her, Patty made the transaction a pleasure. When shopping for replacement property, Patty was available 24/7, and assisted us in getting into the location we desired. Patty is a local; she knows the area and the people, which was a huge benefit. Her always pleasant demeanor was so refreshing and made what could have been a less-than-pleasurable experience, a piece of cake. I would highly recommend Patty to handle any real estate transaction, and most certainly be using her again myself." - Melissa Nathan, Solvang.
