Client testimonials and reviews
After trying to deal with Bank of America on my own for over two years, I finally gave up and contacted Patrick from a Google Search. Patrick sat down with my wife and I and explained all our options and suggested a short sale as a way to go. He handled everything from the endless amount of filing paper work, to a personal lawyer he uses for his real estate transaction. In less than nine months we were able to close on the property and put this experience to rest. Thank you Patrick for going the extra mile for us. - Joe B.
My husband and I finally purchased our first home in Middletown in late January. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable and professional and was very patient with us as we made our decisions. We wavered back and forth a few times on purchases but he still stayed with us! He made the home buying process very easy by guiding us to the right mortgage broker and attorney as well. Buying a house is very time consuming and stressful but we were lucky to have Patrick on our side and are pleased to say we've also made a new friend in the process. - Mrs. Jones
Patrick knows his stuff, is very responsive, and puts the best interests of his clients before everything else. He helped us find a great house that we are very happy with and made the whole process transparent and as low stress as possible. I highly recommend him. - Miles I.
I didn't expect to ever find anyone who was short sale/REO capable. Every realtor I have dealt with says they know the deal and how things work but none every really do.... Patrick knows the deal and understands how to get things done. He also explains things clearly and directly avoiding the hassle of false promises and missed deadlines. I will use Patrick again - - I wish he had more multi family properties so we could work together sooner! - James Q.
We never expected to sell our home so fast by Short Sale. We started out not knowing much about Short Sales but Patrick gave us reassurance from day one that we had made the right decision for our family. He made long trips to our house and walked us through this proccess step by step. He made sure to always keep us informed of any communications with our bank and the buyers. We felt very comfortable working with Patrick because he never made us feel like we were bad people for doing what we were doing, Who would have thought we could have a contract on our home within 10 days of putting it on the market!!!! We just closed on 4/25/12. Amazing! We can't tell you how much we appreciate all you have done for our family. Patrick- Thank you!!! - Valerie
When foreclosure seemed to be my only option, I researched Short Sales. I found that many realtors did not handle them and some that claimed they did were not experts. I came across Patrick's website.....I am so very fortunate to have found him. At first, I was skeptical as if something is too good to be true.....well, was I wrong! Patrick was always positive,professional and compassionate. He is a great communicator and kept me in the loop every step of the way and he just closed the deal on my house 4-4-12. A hopeless situation turned positive because of an agent who knows his profession, Thank you Patrick - Mike
From day one, Patrick was more than just a realtor to me. He took the time to get to know me and my kids, and fully explained every detail of what he would do for me. He started right away working on forms and discussing ideas to help my house sell better. We agreed on the terms and off he went to work. The house was on the market right away and on line. This particular project took quiet some time, due to issues with my bank, which I will leave nameless here as they don't deserve any free advertisment. Anyway, Patrick work unbelieveable hard and long to make it work, and kept me informed all the way, every step. Even when he had to give me bad news due to my bank again. Long story short, we closed today. Patrick I can't thank you enough for all of the effort you put in during this process. I will recommend you to everyone I know that will be buying or selling in the future. Thanks for everything!!! - Brian
My husband and I recently decide to short sale our house. We live out of state and were referred to Patrick. It turned out to be the best referral. Patrick was always ready to help, being 3 hours time difference he responded no matter what time, by email, phone or fax. Our loan provider threw us a couple curve balls and Patrick was right there to submit complaints to necessary officials. If we ever buy or sell again in CT we will certainly call Patrick. - Mr. and Mrs. R.
My partner and I debated short-selling our home for a couple of years before finding Patrick's website online. Not knowing where to begin and feeling overwhelmed with the process, I Emailed Patrick. Within a couple of hours I had an Email back and from then on I stopped worrying. I can honestly say the whole experience was painless. Patrick explained things clearly, didn't rush during our conversations, and mostly, was always available. Any time I had a question, I got a call, Email, or text back within minutes. Patrick priced the house correctly and we had 2 offers during the first week of listing. The whole process, from the time I first contacted Patrick to the day I moved out, took about 3 months. It's obvious Patrick loves his work and is very invested in it. I sincerely can't say enough about Patrick and would recommend him to everyone. If we every buy a house again, he has our business. - Luana
My husband and I recently purchased our first home and used Patrick James as our agent. I can't say enough him! He was very professional and personable, he answered all of our questions and worked hard for us! I know he had several other clients at the time, but he made us feel as if we were his only clients! He recommended an excellent home inspector and lawyer to help us as well! I would recommend Patrick to all of my family and friends. Thanks Patrick! - Jacquelyn
Patrick is one of the best Realtors that I have ever worked with in short selling my old house and finding a new house,He lives far from the town that I live in and he had helped me find a new house in the town that I wanted and he traveled form town to town for me and he is always there to answer any questions that you have.He is a Pro as a Realtor I highly recomend to anyone. - Jason H
Finding ourselves in a position of having to sell a house that had lost over 50% of it value, I had no idea where to turn. I found Patrick and listed with him, and from the get go he had every little detail covered. I had heard horror stories of short sales, but I must say Patrick is a pro. Any questions I had were answered in plain, easy to understand terms, his attention to detail and advocacy on our part were stellar. Short selling? Patrick is your guy, hands down! - Andy
Once Patrick found a buyer, he had the short sale approved and closed in a matter of weeks. His attention to detail and knowledge of short sales made this a smooth and painless experience. We wish would have found him sooner! - Mr. and Mrs. M
I recently worked with Patrick to short sale my home and would recommend him to anyone faced with this situation. A short sale is difficult in so many ways. It is a lengthy process and requires much patients and constant contact with the bank. Patrick was persistent with the bank and never let any deadlines pass he kept the process moving at all times. In my situation the bank changed process handlers and much of my paperwork was misplaced and took several weeks before they found the documents. Patrick stayed in constant contact with the new processor so that they would not drop the ball a second time. We even lost our buyer because of this error/delay, but Patrick was able to work with the bank to recover the documents and get our buyer back. Kudos Patrick! I closed today and am glad this is behind me. It was a bittersweet because I would have stayed in the house if not for my economic crisis. What I absolutely love about Patrick is his no nonsense business ethic. He is there to help you and not judge ...Patrick to short sale my home and would recommend him to anyone faced with this situation. A short sale is difficult in so many ways.

What I absolutely love about Patrick is his no nonsense business ethic. He is there to help you and not judge you, which takes the pressure off of feeling like a total looser. He understands that economic hardship is a realty that many of us our facing and instead of judging he gets to work on doing what is in your best interest. If anyone is in this situation do reach out to Patrick I promise you will not be disappointed! I would recommend Patrick for not only a short sale but for any real estate transaction he knows the business and gets the job done. If I am ever in a position to buy again I will hire Patrick as my agent. - Kim
I met Patrick upon my return to CT during the first week of June. I placed my trust in him to sell my home. The home had been damaged in a flood, no insurance, and increased familial obligations made keeping the home an impossibility. At no time was Patrick judgmental concerning our position. He was a professional in all respects. We fell victim to the financial crisis created by the government and the banking industry. I intended to sell my home in 2006 but circumstances prevented this. The writing was on the wall and I did not know what to do. The financial picture deteriorated further and further until I nearly filed bankruptcy. When I called Patrick's real estate office I was grasping at straws. Little did I know that I had actually caught a lifeline. The closing was today, August 30, 2011. My family and I are ecstatic that this is finally behind us. Kudos to Tim Kearney, attorney at law and to you Patrick. - John
I recently worked with Patrick as a buyer to find a condo in Wallingford. Pat was a breath of fresh air in that he did his job and did it extremely well. He went above and beyond for me and listened to every word I said regarding what it was I was looking for. I called him with a million questions and he was never frustrated or annoyed. He did not pressure me to look at any listing that was either out of my price range. Working with Pat was truly a rewarding experience and he was there for me every step of the way. I now consider Pat a personal friend and would recommend him to anybody. It was nice for once to work with a professional that I didn't have to double check or question. He did it right from beginning to end. Thank you Pat! - Miss G.
Short Sales can be a very rewarding, and at the same time, very frustrating experience. The process can be fraught with all kinds of uncertainty and delays in the different phases it goes through to completion. Patrick worked with me on my first Short Sale buy and although I became frustrated at certain points in the process, he was always cool, calm, collected and had my best interests in mind explaining the who, what, where and why of everything that was going on in terms I understood. Patrick is a straight shooter with a professional demeanor and always gave me excellent advice and timely feedback on the evolving matters of the deal. Short Sale buying is not for the faint of heart, if you go that route, I would recommend Patrick as your Short Sale representative in a heartbeat.- Chris
I think I may be Patricks best customer. I have bought 4 properties with him and have followed him when he changed brokers. He continuously goes above and beyond and he is understanding of the needs of an investor, not just a home owner. - David
When I decided to buy a condo, there was no doubt that I would have Patrick James be my agent. He walked me through every step and went to bat for me when I needed it. Patrick is super accessible and easy to talk to. No matter what your situation, Patrick will put everything into making your transaction as painfree as possible! I will always use Patrick in any future real estate transactions and I highly recommend him to everyone else! - L.W.
Patrick assisted my husband and I with the recent short sale of our house and he was a pleasure to work with. He had answers to all of our questions,he was always extremely quick to respond to calls, texts, and emails. He was straightforward and honest about the entire process and I appreciated how smoothly everything went. I will definitely contact Patrick in the future if find myself in need of an agent again.- D.F. and M.F
After using Patrick to sell our home, my wife and I didn't hesitate in using Patrick to look for our new home. He understood what we wanted and made suggestions that we haden't ever thought of. He was always professional and returned our calls or emails very quickly. He made us feel like we were his priority. When we did find our home, his negotiating skills were incredible. We tell everyone looking to buy or sell about our great experience with Patrick. - Adam
Patrick was a great help when my wife and I were looking to buy our first home. He was very knowledgeable about the different kind of loans we could use. - Jeremy
We had spoken to another Realtor prior to signing with Patrick. The other Realtor basically thought we should list or house for well below market value due to the economy. Once we spoke to Patrick we realized that as long as the house was priced right, it would sell. Patrick saw the same value in our home as we did. He is confident and easy to work with. I always thought it didn't matter who you listed your house with, I now know it does matter!! 35 days later, we had a signed contract! We look forward to our search with Patrick for our new home! - Allison
Patrick assisted me in locating in new home last year. I could not ask for a more responsive agent. He listened to what I was looking for and in a very short time we found in perfect house right in my price range. I would highly recommend using Patrick for any of your real estate needs.- Barbara
My wife and I bought our current home two years ago with Patrick as our agent and we could not have had a smoother transaction without him. He went above and beyond for us. He was at every appointment, got us all of the estimates and even did stuff himself. If my wife or I had to make any other real estate purchase, Patrick is the only person we would go with. Not too mention he is just a great guy. He is very personable and knowledgeable and not pushy ( which some agents can be), which makes him very easy to work with. Again, Patrick gets my highest recommendation and I hope anyone who reads this will too. Thanks again Patrick.- Zach
