I have worked with Pat Best for several years. She is intelligent and gets the job done. Her knowledge of the market and real estate financing is impressive. In addition, after the sale she continues to be a helpful resource in the community. When we met for lunch I think she knew everyone in the restaurant!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Lakeville, Lakeville, CT.
We were very happy with Pat Best's assistance in buying a home. The seller was challenging to deal with and Pat was very good at offering suggestions on how best to keep the deal moving forward. We found her to be extremely responsive to our calls and emails, very knowledgable about the market and the area, very helpful in making herself available to give access to home inspectors and service people during the buying process when we were unavailable ourselves, and, frankly, a delight to work with. We would certainly use her again and would recommend her to anyone needing a realtor in the area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.125M in Lakeville, Lakeville, CT.
We were extremely happy with Pat Best as a real estate agent. She was professional, very easy to work with and a real straight shooter. She gave us lots of information throughout the process and we always felt that she was representing us and working on our behalf. She really knows the market and we felt lucky to have her insight. She made things very easy for us while buying our house, and she was also hugely helpful with local knowledge as we were getting settled. Could not recommend her enough.
Pat was a delight to work with in our somewhat lengthy home search. The last few years have been difficult no doubt for hopeful sellers and, as such, much on the market is overpriced.
Pat worked with us patiently and dilligently throughout our search and earns top praise on all fronts. She's an attentive listener and works for her client's best interests in all phases from introduction through the completed transaction.
Pat was a great help in buying my new home. She was very knowledgeable and honest about location differences and home conditions and concerns. She was calm and collected during negotiations and ended up with all parties happy...transaction was smooth and professional.
