Patty was great, friendly, responsive, very knowledgeable about the area, had already seen many of the homes we were interested in and knew or was able to find the full story. At the end she knew what we liked before we said it and helped us get a deal.

Dear Patty,

We can not thank you  enough for all of your handwork and dedication.  We knew from the start that we had selected the right agent ,but you more than exceeded our expectations.  You made a daunting (sometimes difficult) process seamless and it made all the difference!

 

Can't wait to have you up to our new space once it's all done.   K&C

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When my Wife and I decided to move to Westchester County we were lucky to have Patty Breen as our realtor. After our first child was born, she helped us buy a wonderful three-bedroom colonial. When our family out grew that house, she found us a five bedroom Victorian that we can honestly call our dream home. Patty’s knowledge of the area and its housing market is without peer. As is her diligence. If we ever move again, Patty Breen will be the first person we call.

Dear Patty

 

 

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for helping us sell our house. Your experience, support and wisdom were a huge benefit to us and got us across the finish line.

Thank you very much!

Dear Patty,

 

I give my unreserved recommendation for you as a selling agent based on my experience listing my Cedar Knolls home for sale with you in May and its sale in September, 2010.

 

After your and your Houlihan Lawrence appraiser visited my home in January you gave me excellent advice on work I should complete before listing.  It generated a focused list of projects to insure that the house would show well and sell quickly.  You advised me to get the projects finished by the end of April to be in the spring market.  Soon after most projects were completed, you ordered an in-depth pricing analysis that was based on recent sales and a pending contract.  You counseled me on my strategy options and your personal advice of the best course.  It was uncomfortable receiving the very realistic set of price recommendations, but I was pleased to have gotten a solid feel of the current market instead of operating on what my home had been worth a few years ago.  It was guidance that reflected what buyers were expecting to pay in a much tougher economic clime.  My pricing resulted in better traffic and my final selling price was close to what you said to expect.

 

You received my listing in early May.  One of your first activities was to maximize realtor exposure to my renovated 4,200 square foot historic home in Cedar Knolls by hiring a top notch photographer and hosting a broker’s open house/luncheon that brought in over 60 area realtors.  Their feedback gave me reassurance that you had, in fact, given me outstanding advice and guidance both on the updates as well as its asking price.

 

I was pleased with the resulting activity.  Clients who were shown my home were well-qualified and I was given feedback after each visit.  You helped maximize exposure to potential buyers by promoting the house on the web site, sponsoring my annual charity garden party benefit for 300 guests and providing refreshments when my home was on a garden tour in June.     

    

I am pleased to have received over 90% of my asking price in my final negotiated price ($1.71 million).  It was over three times what I paid for the (un-restored) house in 1999. 

 

Patty is a seasoned professional who has in-depth knowledge of the lower Westchester real estate market and who can offer spot-on recommendations for the most satisfactory outcome possible with a home listing.  Our home in East Hampton is on the market now (as we prepare to move to northern California).  I wish we could have used Patty’s services out here!   If anyone would like to contact me for more information about my experience, Patty has my permission to provide my current contact information.
