I moved to Ashland in 1975,
and was captured by its beauty.
I became a Realtor in 1977 and opened my
own company in 1987.
My husband David joined me in 1989.
We are co owners and principal brokers of
Patricia Sprague Real Estate.
When I started my company I
did not realize I would still be in real estate
this long. But
the truth is I still love it, and what I love the
most about real estate is the people I meet and
work with. For
most people real estate is the biggest investment
they will make in a lifetime, and the saying
“Home Sweet Home” is still true, especially
now in these times.
For me there is nothing more
wonderful than seeing the happiness when one finds
the home they love, or the excitement when someone
finds a great investment, as well as when they
sell, and anticipating a new future.
The other joy I find in real
estate are the people that work with us in our
company. We are like a small family and they have
the values and integrity that is so important to
me for our company. Some of our agents started out
as my clients. And some have been with us for over
20 years, it is always a pleasure to come to the
office and see their friendly faces.
This is a very challenging
I first got into real estate the interest rate was
was also challenging.
And now more then ever it is important to
be able to give as much professionalism as well as
caring for every client, and hopefully have their
experience in purchasing or selling, be as smooth
and enjoyable as possible.
When a customer comes through
our door, I feel it is a great honor, and I
appreciate the business they bring to our office.
Patricia and David are blessed with a loving
family of 4 children.

I moved to the
Rogue Valley in 1976 (from Pennsylvania by way of
a 5 year stop in Sonoma County CA) and in 1987
started my career in real estate. I know the area
and the market well. Providing my clients with
attentive, professional and ethical care has
helped to make these years enjoyable. I am
dedicated to helping people, making transactions

client recently described me as having a rare
combination of heart and mind that I bring to the
task at hand, and another called me the "patron
saint of escrows". I attribute my commitment
to providing excellent service to my success and
longevity in the business. I also love my

I truly feel "There Is No Place Like
Home" so, for the past 22 years I have been
successfully helping my clients and friends with
their Real Estate dreams!
