Bought and sold a Condo home in 2018 in Clearwater, FL.
I am a New Jersey Real Estate Agent and had a property I needed to sell in Clearwater. Patty was able to get us a buyer that offered a good price and we are now under contract WOOHOO. Working with her has been a total pleasure, and since I am not in Florida she went out of her way to help me with  paperwork I needed to get to the Condo Association by delivering it to them herself so I did not have to mail it. She followed up with me every step of the way and is making this out of state sale so easy. Thank you Patty, it is a pleasure doing business with you. I very highly recommend her for any Real Estate transaction.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Clearwater, FL.


Patty seemed to always be one step ahead of me! If i had a question or concern, she was already on top of it before I even got to ask! Home buying is really stressful and it is so relieving to have someone who is attentive and aware of everything that is happening and keeping you apprised of what  happens next. You will not regret choosing Patty as your agent!!   My rating: A+

Patty is always sending me the most recent posting of properties for sale in the Tampa, St. Pete area. She finds the postings that interest me and what I am looking for.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Patty who patiently and respectfully helped a special needs friend of our family. Patty really went the extra mile--or LIGHT-YEAR in this case--to assist and accommodate this home buyer new to Florida. Her passion, knowledge and diligence come shining through despite any challenges that arise personally or professionally. I would definitely recommend Patty to other home buyers out there, especially friends and family! When the going got tough, Patty persisted, always with a keen eye for detail and the utmost optimism. Her follow-through is impeccable and we are so happy to have chosen her for our sole real estate agent.

Patty goes the distance for you!  She not only identified the items needing attention to best present the property but followed up and helped select and choose the products to best show the property.  Since I was 440 miles away I couldn't be more appreciative of her due diligence and follow up. She is without a doubt the best professional realtor I have ever worked with at completing the sales process.

I really enjoyed working with Patty. She went above and beyond in selling a townhome quickly. Her responsiveness and experience with developing creative marketing material, providing feedback on staging a home, and conducting an open house all contributed to a quick sell at the asking price! Since   this area has been her home for over 30 years, she is also very knowledgeable about the real estate processes specific to Florida. She made the sometimes challenging task of selling a home a pleasure - from start to finish!!

Patty Dykstra, with Charles Rutenberg Realty, had a listing in my neighborhood around the time I was considering a move myself.  When I saw how quickly that property sold I asked her to come and talk to me about mine.  We listed it that day and it was under contract for more than I asked in 12 days with multiple offers. If a responsive, educated, friendly agent is what you are looking for... Call Patty today!

Working with Patty Dykstra to buy our first home was a wonderful experience.  We couldn't have done it without her.  She was very friendly, professional and helpful.  She made the buying experience a joy and we will recommend her to our friends and family.  We look forward to buying our next house with her!
