Patrick was great. As first time buyers we were all over the place, we had no idea what we wanted and Patrick was happy to jump through hoops to find us the perfect home. He was very patient with us and we never felt like a bother on any of our requests no matter how last minute. He was very timely on all matters and was in constant contact throughout every step of the way. We feel that due to Patrick's help we did very well in every aspect of our home buying process. He was able to accomplish every task we threw his way and the results were always better than expected. We got to know Patrick well, he is a great guy and we now consider him a friend.

When my husband and I learned we had to move, we knew we couldn't hold on to our house, and because of how much we owed we knew it would be a short sale or foreclosure situation - something neither of us knew how to handle (translation: stressful). We found Patrick on Zillow doing a search for short sale and after seeing his reviews, we gave him call. Patrick made a scary and often frustrating process so much easier; he knows short sales in and out. Even though our bank (which shall remain nameless - let's just call it "bank of the run-around") regularly dropped the ball, Patrick stayed on them, ensuring that we received their attention. When we had to move to another state, Patrick went above and beyond, helping us get plumbing and other repair work set up (not his responsibility, but he stepped up all the same). It took a little more than 6 months for the bank and government to come together for our case, but Patrick stuck with us and we just closed - a big relief. We owe Patrick a huge thanks and are very pleased to recommend his services to anyone who finds themselves in the same situation.

Patrick is a miracle worker. He succeeded where others had failed, in fact, the realtor I had prior to Patrick told me that I had no alternative to foreclosure due to the negative value of my home combined with vacancy (I had to move while the house stayed on the market). Patrick came out to assess my property, took on the job, and had it sold within a few months...but this was a short sale so that is not where it ended. He was able to navigate the lenders, knew the laws and understood the short-sale market which is no small task. After many months of hard negotiations, Patrick was able to make an incredible deal with the lenders on both my behalf and that of the buyer. I am eternally grateful for the help, hard work and persistence. Patrick, you're the best!
Patrick sold our house in under a week! From the time we contacted him to the time we sold, Patrick kept us well informed of the entire process. He contacted us daily with any updates. Any concerns we had, Patrick was immediately there to address. He priced the house right, and got us well above the price we thought we'd get. Patrick is amazing at what he does, and we have recommended him to everyone to we talk to.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Middletown, CT.
Patrick was our realtor for a sale/rental of our condo which is owned by four siblings. He did an excellent job of keeping all parties informed every step of the way. it was especially helpful to me as I live out of state from where the condo is located. He was very professional, knowledgeable and honest. He informed us of all activity (positive and negative). He was very aggressive in advertising it and we had a rental within a month. I would recommend Patrick to represent me again.

Patrick was a great help to me as I tried to find the perfect place for my daughter and I.
He showed me many places, taught me about short sales, helped me negotiate the right price for the condo I finally chose, and became my friend. I am thankful that I trusted my instincts when I first met Patrick. He helped me with all of the challenges that I faced while getting my mortgage, going through the inspection process, and making sure I got everything I needed ...even after the closing.
We were lucky enough to know Patrick prior to purchasing our home. He spent countless hours with us searching far and wide for the home we could grow old in. Being that my husband and I have VERY different tastes in home design, this was NOT an easy task. Frequently we would joke that Patrick was our marriage counselor as well as our Realtor. He has always given us rock-solid advice with regard to our rental property as well as our real estate purchases, and helped us find a great mortgage broker who took excellent care of us. Patrick is incredibly honest, and always does what is best for his clients, NOT his wallet. I always discourage people from doing business with friends, unless that friend is Patrick James! He is truly the best.

Patrick is the man to have in your corner. He is professional, he is a short sale expert, and he is a nice guy. We hired him to short sale our home and he did an excellent job. He handled every curve ball the bank threw at us with ease, and believe me there were a lot of curve balls. He made it happen. Hire him!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Torrington, CT.
We are very grateful Patrick and his team were able to help us sell our home. The economy and a relocation forced us to make a difficult decision. Thankfully with his knowledge and resources he made this "headache" much easier to live with and brought us onto the road of recovery. He had helped us every step of the way and listened to and got answers for our every question! My husband and I are extremely grateful!!!!

Even the simplest short-sale is pretty complex, but my short-sale was far from simple. From the start, it was fraught with problems and potential obstacles, and frankly, I didn't think I had a chance of making it work. Until I met Patrick James. Patrick is not just another real estate agent. He's a short-sale specialist, and I'm understating it when I say he knows his business. After I told him the reasons I didn't think my short-sale would work, he got on the phone, emailed a couple folks, and quickly convinced me that he could make it work. Inspired by Patrick's confidence, I signed a listing agreement on May 2nd, and in less than a week, he had a full-price, cash offer ready for me to sign. We closed on the property on August 21st. It could have happened sooner, but as I said, there were multiple problems Patrick had to overcome along the way. And overcome them he did, with poise, tenacity and a depth of knowledge that overshadowed even the bank examiner who had to approve the deal. Throughout the entire process, Patrick was incredibly professional, responsive and friendly. If you're thinking about a short-sale, you should call him. Now. I can practically guarantee you won't find anyone more qualified to get the job done for you. Because of Patrick, my life looks a whole lot better than it did six months ago, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have met him.
