Bought a home in 2014 in Rial Side, Beverly, MA 01915.
As first time homebuyers, we were told by everyone we knew to expect a long and frustrating process looking for our new home. We found Patty Knaggs on Zillow and gave her a call in February 2014. When we sat down in her office with her, we told her that we knew the homebuying process would take a long time and that we were so unprepared that we expected to take at least a year to find a place. Patty made the process so easy, painless and seamless that we were in our new home less than 4 months later. We ask a lot of questions...a lot of questions...when making a purchase. Patty was available to us all the time and ready to answer all of our questions. Her knowledge of Boston's North Shore, the region we have always wanted to live, helped us to make that dream come true.
Patty has been an absolute asset from day one! She helped my wife and I find our first multi in Salem and our relationship has grown from there. Her knowledge and advice make the process very easy and for us... Fun. There is not enough room to describe the positives about working with her. Even when we are not in the market to buy, she has always checked in with us and I'm proud to call Patty a friend. She has made what always seemed like a gruesome process so simple and seemless. Thanks Patty!

Patty Knaggs has been a Godsend throughout the whole process of my family buying a new home. One of our sons had Patty has an agent when he and his fiancé bought a new house last fall. They were so pleased with Patty, that we worked with her also.That was one of the best decisions we've ever made! Patty has always been easy to reach, and was prompt in setting up property showings. She has always been very easy to talk to, and no matter what questions we had, she always made us feel comfortable asking, and made us feel that each question was important. She walked us through the whole process, and despite any concerns we had along the way, she'd always alleviate our worries. She works with a wonderful team that worked with us through each step of the process, and we would highly recommend all of them in a heartbeat!

My husband and I just got the keys to our first home with the help of Patty Knaggs and her recommended team (mortgage broker, lawyer, and inspector). During our time looking, she was quick to pick up on our taste and needs and made relevant suggestions based on those. The house we ended up buying wasn't even on our radar and we were extensively searching online.
Patty also helpfully pointed out what was good, fair, or lacking in terms of what the various sellers were offering. If she felt something was priced too high or too low, she'd let us know her thoughts, as well as pointed out the various "fixes," that may or may not have been needed throughout the houses we looked at.
Buying a house is certainly stressful, especially during the holidays, but Patty and her team made the process as easy as possible for us. We look forward to many happy years in our new home!
She was also willing to take the extra step to meet us on short notice, check out houses she thought we may like but couldn't make open houses for, and set up tours to meet our schedules--even in tight time frames.
We also requested the Mass Housing program, which she and her broker (Guaranteed Rate) were familiar with, and facilitated with ease.

Patty is knowledgeable, professional and responsive. From the time my husband and I initially met with Patty to the time we closed, she was there to answer every question we had. She took the time to get to know us and understand what was most important to us. We looked at quite a few houses and Patty taught us something new at each one. As first time homebuyers, we weren't expecting to find our forever home but Patty helped us do just that.

I would highly recommend Patty to anyone buying or selling on the cape ann/ north shore area. She is extremely professional with all of her many tasks and is able to keep her eye on ALL the moving parts! She made herself available for me all the time.. To the point where I felt like her only client. She is a master at making your dreams come true. I would never use anyone else:)
