Living in town for 25 years, we had 5-6 friends and acquaintances who were realtors. How would we pick one of them? We didn’t know Pat Shea, but were referred to her by a service that independently ranks realtors based upon the most important traits that should matter to every home seller: Track record, Average days on the market, selling price as a % of Listing price. (BTW, none of our friends made the Top 10 in Fairfield County list.) Look no further for a true partner and professional. We were truly impressed by Pat’s motivation, matter-0of-fact candor, conviction, and roll-up-the sleeves work ethic. She helped us stage our home, and even recruited her sons to help move some furniture. Her reputation among realtors meant our open house had a ton of traffic. Net: Our home had a contract on it in 45 days, and sold in 70, even though it was priced 4-5% above what other realtors advised even when none of the other properties on the street were moving. But she wasn’t done. Pat did legal– and town records– related legwork that went well beyond the normal effort. Throughout the process, she hustled, she networked, she communicated and she followed through.
Moral of the story: this is a business transaction! Don’t default to a friend. Do just a little homework and find a proven performer for selling homes in your price band, and who will tell you the unvarnished truth about what you need to do to sell your house. We found Pat Shea and were really glad we did. Robert G, Westport, CT 2017
Pat is the ultimate broker as she is more knowledgeable than most brokers out there. She has an impressive legal background as well as an understanding of her clients' needs. Pat works harder than any other broker I have encountered to get the job done. I have now had the pleasure of working with Pat for three of my deals (2 as buyers and one as the seller) and on all three occasions, Pat came through for me. We prepped my house and sold it in a record time, and for an amazing price due to Pat's expertise of staging, and pricing the house right on target. On the buying side, she actively negotiated for me to get the price in my target range. Furthermore, she also rented out properties for me quickly and efficiently, finding and screening thoroughly the potential tenants, saving me time and money. Many brokers will overprice to get your listing, Pat is honest because she is smart and knowledgeable and she will be my broker for life!
Pat was my listing broker on my property in Westport Ct. She provided comps and input to help me determine a realistic listing price that would precipitate a quick sale. She proactively suggested and then executed a flawless staging of my home which resulted in 2 offers over asking price a very challenging market. Her keen knowledge of the market and great guidance earned me over 7% over my asking price with 3 offers 3 weeks after listing the property. She knows her market intimately and knows what is needed to sell or buy a home. I have bought and sold properties in Fairfield County and dealt with numerous agents and none hold a candle to Pat. Her professionalism, knowledge of the market, excellent negotiating skills, compassion and tireless commitment to her clients is unmatched. She is just stellar and the best Fairfield County has to offer!
