Founded in April of 2014 by CT Licensed Real Estate Broker Patrick James, PWJ Real Estate & Property Management is a Real Estate Brokerage founded on strong values, a commitment to developing relationships, and a dedication to give back to the communities that we serve throughout Connecticut.
Almost immediately after Patrick first obtained his Real Estate Salesperson's license in early 2008, we all were witness to the biggest real estate and financial collapse since The Great Depression. It was in that time that he was given some sage advice from an experienced 25 year Real Estate Veteran. "The most successful agents I know, that have lasted a long time of this business, started in a down market. Those down times have made today's successful agents what they are today. They had to work hard. Anyone can get a license and sell a house when the average number of days on market for a new listing is 12 hours. Those days are gone, and trust me, you will be better for it."
The Real Estate business is by no means easy and is certainly not for the faint of heart. The purchase of a home will be the single largest investment most Americans will make in their lifetimes. We take this responsibility to our clients very seriously and only bring on agents that share our company's relentless commitment to our clients and the communities we serve.
There will be good times, and there will be not so good times for sure. Nearly every Real Estate transaction has a curve ball thrown in it. You need a firm standing behind you that knows how to hit that curve ball out of the park and keep your Real Estate transaction on the path to a smooth closing. PWJ Real Estate and Property Management is that firm. We promise never to "sugar coat" anything. Honest, up-front and candid real estate advice is what you will always receive when you trust our firm with your transaction.
Our Agents and Brokers have a proven track record of getting successful results for our clients. What sets us apart from most other Connecticut Real Estate Brokerage firms, is that we are not going to just tell a one sided story about how great we are, and how we've been able to help hundreds and thousands of clients successfully buy or sell their Connecticut homes. With all the successes, there are bound to be some failures too. While the failures are much fewer in number than the successes, they are equally as important. Some deals have presented insurmountable inspection obstacles. There have been families on the brink of foreclosure that we could do nothing for despite trying our best to complete the transaction before the law day. We have had buyers get outbid on their dream home, or in some cases a property is off the market before we even get to schedule a showing! We all fail at something eventually. It is inevitable. We can't run from it. You can't run from it. The only thing we all can do as a team is recognize it, embrace it, and do everything possible to make sure we "fail forward". We commit to learning from our collective failures, and to use that knowledge and understanding to make sure we are successful for you and your families. Failure IS inevitable for all of us at some point in our lives. So when it does happen, whether the failure is personally or professionally, commit yourself to "failing forward" as our firm has. We have found that we have been able to learn more from ours and others mistakes, than anyone has ever been able to teach us in a classroom.
As we embark on this journey and as our firm grows and expands, PWJ Real Estate and Property Management thanks you all for taking the time to visit our website, and getting to know us a little better. Brokers, agents, mentors, coaches, friends, family and last but certainly not least, every one of our clients and customers. Whether we have enjoyed success or endured failure together, without each and every one of you we would not be able to grow and have the continued success that we enjoy. Much love to you all, and oh by the way - WE LOVE YOUR REFERRALS!
