Rhonda is a native of Eastern Washington and has lived in the Tri-Cities for 22 years. She bought her first home at the age of 24 after graduating from college with a degree in dental hygiene. In 1996, Rhonda started investing in real estate, co-owning a general contracting and property management company where she purchased six houses and a multi-family property in the first year. Rhonda is very familiar with the home-building process as well as coordinating with city and county code compliance, having facilitated the general contract that built her family’s home in 2008.
A lover of Tri-Cities, Rhonda raised her children here and believes it is the best place to raise a family! She enjoys the area for all it has to offer, including boating, camping, hiking, sporting events, and the beautiful weather.
Rhonda’s greatest passion in life is helping people. As a full-time real estate broker, she is a highly motivated, detail oriented, and organized. Her mission is to deliver a top-notch experience by providing attentive and timely service to all of her clients. Having been on the investing side, and now having a family of her own, Rhonda finds it very rewarding helping others become new homeowners.
When my husband and I met Rhonda first, we just had a good feeling about her even before we started to look for houses together. And as we expected, she is the RIGHT agent for us! We had particular taste aka "picky" about the house such as size, built year, floor plan, location etc. and neighborhood, so it was not easy to find the right house for us, But Rhonda listened to all the details and understood what we were looking for. So, we finally found the perfect house for us! Also, I had so many questions and hesitation in various area, but she answered really good with her knowledge and was very patient and supportive. Another thing I liked about her is quick response and often updates. In addition to her work ability, I liked her personality and quality of her selection. She seemed to have high stan dards of everything, so I was very satisfied with her recommendations in choosing a house and companies for cleaning, bank, inspection etc.. With all aspects I have seen from her, I highly recommend Rhonda Patnode and will definitely work with her again to sell my house and buy a new home in the future. Thank you, Rhonda!
Being from the other side of the country, we strongly relied on recommendation of the only people we had talked to in the area. Rhonda is a wonderful person and excellent buyers agent! We consider her our first friend in the Tri-Cities! We heavily relied on her because we were so far away. She handled every piece so well and kept us in the loop through the whole process.
