Lori was very very personable, knowledgeable and excited about us potential closing on this lot, for we had a great experience with her and would definitely recommend Lori Patch.
Steven Berry - Helped me buy a home
Working with Lori was great! We moved from out of state and I was only in town for one day to look at homes. She lined up 14 homes to look at in and we ended up finding our home. Lori coordinated with our mortgage rep and selling agent in Michigan to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible. She is very professional and communication was great. I highly recommend her.
Theresa Reitner - Helped me sell my property

Brian Roetemeyer - Helped me sell and buy a home
We came to Ocean Shores looking for a lot or property to set up an RV hookup so we could come down more often to this great little town, and to see my wife's parents :-) While compiling our list of properties to look at the next Saturday we saw our new home pop up on the website we were browsing. It caught our eye! It just so happens that there was going to be an open house the same day we were in town from Seattle put on by Lori. We reviewed the properties and then came to the house. We walked in and Lori and her wonderful husband Tom greeted us very warmly. We fell in love immediately with the home. I was speaking with Lori about where we lived and she told us that she had an office in our area and that she could help us sell our home in Seattle, and purchase our home in Ocean Shores. She even had a great lender to work with, it was all so seamless! The owners of the home in Ocean Shores had left some furniture in the home for staging and Lori took great effort to get it all sold/removed from the home before we arrived. She even met with our house cleaner to let them in to complete a final clean before we arrived so it was all shiny and new. Lori was very knowledgeable and nice throughout the whole process, it made moving over 100 miles easy. We plan on purchasing a small property back in Seattle so we can get our city on once in a while and be close to family, we will definitely be having Lori partner with us to make it happen. Many thanks and appreciation to Lori, she's the BEST!!!!
Dan Diebels - Helped me sell at lot
Lori was a pleasure to work with during the marketing and sale of the property. She has a great knowledge of local values and trends.

Haley Sales - Helped me buy a home
Local knowledge - Process expertise - Responsiveness - Negotiation skills
I strongly recommend Angela Simons with The Thomas Group! She answered and and all questions we had very effectively through the process and even after we had moved. Angela is very kind, helpful and professional. We were purchasing our first home so everything about the process was new and confusing but Angela made it much easier and helped us understand everything!
Scotvill - Helped me sell my home
Local knowledge - Process expertise - Responsiveness - Negotiation skills
I highly recommend working with Angela when you buy or sell a home. Angela was knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and provided us with an easy transaction. I am so happy that we chose Angela to sell our home!
Salma Saunders - Helped me buy a home
If I were to describe Angela it would be a smart hard working woman with immense patience! She did not give up on us even when I thought we weren’t going to find our dream home because of how crazy the market was! We were first time buyers and she made it seem easy by taking the time to explain the process. She was always on call, patient and professional! If we ever decide to sell or buy again we will definitely be reaching out to Angela!
Morie Stewart - Helped me sell and buy a home
Angela Simons is a natural at helping people make the right decisions in real estate. Whether it is helping a family sell their 2nd generation home or helping a large 1st generation family purchase their first home. I had the honor of having Angela walk with me through the difficult process of selling the home I grew up in for my mom. She was there to advise me on clearing the house of many family belongings. Angela kept me on track when it came to selling “as-is” with a few valuable improvements; thus, setting me up for the most cost effective, yet highly marketable sale. The legal paperwork was daunting at times, but Angela helped me take it one step at a time with the utmost patience. When we were ready to put the house on the market, with Angela’s expertise, the house sold within 4 hours. There were up to 12 showings and several bids. Angela helped me pick the best offer that was well over the asking price. She also worked very, very well with the buyer’s real estate agent to help navigate the hurdles that arose on the buyer’s end of the sale. It has already been a year since selling my family’s home and I never once regretted anything! Angela is not only a top-grade real estate broker, but she is an expert when it comes to working with people and making life events, like selling or buying a home, very grounded and personally successful.
Megan Clark - Helped me buy a home
Referred us to an amazing lender and would love working with Angela again in the future!!
Morgan Napeiralski - Helped me buy a home
Angela was amazing to work with and always answered our questions. She helped us through the difficult and often trying/discouraging process until we found “the one”! We are so happy we worked with her and would definitely recommend working with her since not only patient but listens to your needs (and wants) to help you find the right fit.
Brian Provo - Helped me sell and buy a home
Angela helped us sell two houses and buy one. She was patient and showed us many homes in order to find one that would work for our family. We were on a timeline that allowed for little error and she helped us get the deals done in a timely manner and accomplish our goals. I would recommend her as an agent. She is now more of a family friend than a real estate agent to our family.
Ben and Chloe Abbott - Helped us buy a home
We are so thankful we had the opportunity to work with Kelley while selling and buying our home! She was so helpful and thoughtful while still helping us stay true to our values and goals. She encouraged us when we felt overwhelmed, and shared in on our excitement, making the process fun! As a family of four, she was always accommodating to our schedule and helped us make the most out of our time viewing homes. We are so happy with our home, but we sure do miss seeing her every week! I would recommend Kelley to anyone looking for an agent because she is incredibly respectful, honest, and hard-working!

Vanessa Boyd - Helped me sell a home
Lori is absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond to help sell the family home. I reached out to her about a year ago knowing that we would need to sell our aging parent's home in Tacoma and we lived at the other end of the US, in Florida. We wanted someone who not only would get the job done, but had the compassion and patience to work with our situation. Father was very ill, mother had some challenges with English being a second language and neither really wanted to sell the home they had lived in for 40 years, even though they knew the time had come. Lori was so compassionate, reaching out over the past year offering to check on our parents in Tacoma and keeping us updated on the market. When the time came to actually list the home for sale, we felt a bit overwhelmed trying to get everything packed and ready for the long distance move. Thankfully, Lori had everything ready on her end. She communicated with us every step of the journey. She helped guide us through the many offers that were received and kept things moving forward for a quick closing. Lori promised 5 Star Service and that is exactly what she provided. We are so pleased and highly recommend her.
Kris Atwood - Helped me buy a home
Simply put, working with Lori was amazing. Lori found us the perfect house. She was professional, super responsive and really new the market and what it would take to get an accepted offer. Even after we had an accepted offer, she continued to work on our behalf and saved us some serious money. Highly recommend Lori.
Dana Hollingsworth - Helped me sell and buy a home
I love working with Rhonda and Lori. They helped in every way and kept me calm. Rhonda knew what I liked in a new home and knew the area well. Don’t go to the big companies go to place that treats you like family.
Debbie Hake - Helped us sell a homeWe can not say enough about Lori Patch. She does everything from start to finish with professionalism, from staging to closing. Our house sold in one day with multiple offers. She did not miss a beat in the hectic process. We could not have asked for a better experience.
The Jeffrey Family - Helped us buy a vacant lot
Being buyers in a new market (Ocean Shores), Lori and The Thomas Group NW Real Estate were life savers! Lori was super prompt and succinct with her responses and recommendation, provided the right amount of support and recommendations at the right time, allowing for us to be the decision makers and drivers. Lori’s knowledge, experience and expertise in contract writing and negotiation helped us navigate unforeseen complexities and negotiate a fair price amongst both the seller and buyer. We highly recommend using Lori, and The Thomas Group NW Real Estate team, to buy and/or sell real estate in Ocean Shores! Thank you so much for the support you have provided us Lori. We could not have made buying in Ocean Shores happen without you :D
Ron and Debbie Bistline - Helped us sell a home

They both were available to us at all times. I highly recommend the Thomas Group. Their knowledge and honesty to be commended. Thank you Ladies.

Steve Witt, Maple Valley, WA - Helped me buy a home
We moved our family to Maple Valley from the DC area in August of 2017. After renting for almost two years, we were ready to buy a home. We met with Lori to discuss what we were looking for and I liked her right away because she was well prepared, organized and most importantly, a good listener! She listened to our "wish list" and helped us with a timeline of what steps we needed to take to move forward with the process. She even showed us a property that same day! She was always ready and willing to look at any property we found and had good insight and knowledge of the area. All in all the process went smoothly, we were able to close on our dream home ahead of schedule and she made sure we were settled and got everything we needed.
Mary Stueber, Maple Valley, WA - Helped me buy a home

Robert Horlick, Lacey, WA - Helped me lease and buy a home
Lori is an outstanding agent. She helped me find and purchase a new home and was really willing to go the extra mile. I’m disabled and homebound so this involved a lot of extra time on her part, video conferencing from prospective properties, meeting with owners, their agents, contractors, etc., and communicating fully and effectively even when my needs required much extra effort. Her patience, professionalism, and service mentality are so impressive! Lori is everything you could wish for in a real estate agent.

I worked with Lori on the purchase transaction for the first time, but it was the best experience I had in last couple years. What impressed me the most was her ability to communicate with all parties in a timely manner and be available all the time when we needed her. Even when we have been given a very short time for closing a VA loan, we were able to do that, because of her dedication to provide the best experience for the customer. I truly enjoy working with her and highly recommend her as a knowledgeable professional.

I would recommend her without hesitation.
