Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $500K in Newburyport, MA.
Pat began the process of selling our house with a thorough review of other similar properties and helping us make an informed decision in setting the right price to ask for our house. She accompanied that conversation with a focused and complete list of suggestions of things we could do to help the house sell in a timely manner. This included everything from updating light fixtures to purchasing a more stylish shower curtain. She was encouraging and professional throughout the entire process and answered all of our questions and concerns in a thorough and timely manner. She helped us navigate this process with assurance and confidence. It is notable that during a challenging real estate time, our house sold quickly and for an excellent price.
Pat also assisted us in the purchase of a lot of land on which to build a new house. She found a selection of properties to look at and was diligent in finding out all about them. This was challenging as many of the properties had conservation or building restrictions. She made sure we understood the strengths and challenges of each property and helped us decide on a final lot on which we have now built a home.
Pat was a tremendous help with selling our house and helping us buy a lot. We were fortunate to have her highly professional assistance in putting our house on the market, selling it quickly at a good price, buying a new piece of property and helping us with regulations and building restrictions. We are very happy in our new home and we would not be this happy without Pat's assistance and support. My husband and I would recommend her without reservation to any prospective sellers or buyers.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Newbury, MA.
At every stage of the process Pat went above and beyond to give me support, answer questions, and get my home sold with as little difficulty as possible.
She also spent as much time with me as I needed to search several towns in the area to find me the right new home.
I would ( and DO) recommend Pat to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the area.

There are few superlatives that can actually equal how my wife and I feel about Pat Skibbee.
First of all, let me describe out situation. We are artist/designer's whose business runs us, not the other way around. So, the property got a bit away from us. Pat came in told us what we should do. My wife being a very good designer did not agree initially with Pat's suggestions - then as we recognized the subtle but very valuable change happening in our house we totally listened to her. We repainted the house, cleared out all the mess, repainted the kitchen, and generally reworked out space.
The market was dead, it was October - not a great season for selling. With in 3 weeks we sold and were rushing to find an interim apartment.
Pat is very savvy, but also knows the real estate game inside and out. Contractors, plumbers, roofer...and she had negotiation down pat (sorry for the pun). I can not, I repeat can not say enough about how great she is. I highly recommend her.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Salisbury, MA.
My name is Claire Carroll and I purchased a house that Pat was the real estate agent for. I found her to be a very personable and honest person and answered all my questions. She made herself available at all times. I was down sizing and after purchasing my new property I put my house on the market through Pat. She was absolutely wonderful in giving me hints on what to do to make the house more appealing and the house showings have been many. I have had many inquiries as to who was my real estate agent and I would recommend Pat Skibbee of River Valley Real Estate very, very highly.

Pat Skibbee found the perfect home for us and ushered us through a complicated buying process. She helped us navigate a number of hurdles that could have ended the deal with a less skilled realtor and gave us excellent advice and guidance. She knows a great deal about local ordinances, community characteristics (e.g. schools), and never made us feel pressured or uncomfortable. She has a sense of humor, relaxed but professional attitude, and was excellent to work with. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the area.
