Pat made the process of selling our house less stressful then what I thought it was going to be. I worried just how long it was going to take to sell my house and she was confident I would have a buyer within a week of placing it on the market. Pat is very familiar with my home and knew there would not be any issue and assured me through the whole process that my house would sell. She helped me make sure my house was ready to be put on the market and gave me suggestions that would make sure my house was ready. She made me feel that no question was not important and that I can call her anytime. She always returned my calls, if she was unable to talk, and was ready to help. I want to put this out to everyone, so that you can be assured you will have a realtor that will work hard for you, in making sure your house sells. Dawn L. (Oxford, CT)
Pat took the time to find out our goals and answer our questions even during a crazy market. She was instrumental in selling our home in a timely manner, guiding us through the entire process, often with a sense of humor which we found refreshing. She is an extremely knowledgeable and patient agent, an important asset during a stressful life event. Ann O. (Oxford, CT)
This year we sold and purchased with Pat for the 4th time! Pat is incredible to work with. She’s extremely knowledgeable, patient, and professional. I always appreciated that Pat really took the time to get to know me as a person and not just a client. She cares deeply about her clients and wants what is best for them! Allie G. (Southbury, CT)
Having partnered with many realtors over the years, truly expected more of the same experiences with my new purchase efforts. However, Pat was unbelievable!!!!! From sticking with me over almost two years, knowing of and prompt attention to every detail in the process to referrals of the other professionals [that were equally attentive] that would be needed to conclude the transaction. As important, she truly worked as quarterback of the team, never did I get, well you need to call etc., she took care of it!!!! Can not speak highly enough of Pat and my experience with her. Truly a professional..Steve H. (Middlebury CT)
Our experience having Pat as our realtor was perfect. Her experience and expertise helped us navigate the whole process of selling our home. She was always available to answer any questions we had, and had our home sold in a very short time. I would highly recommend Pat for any real estate needs! Nancy P. (Oxford, CT)
If anyone should be crazy enough to consider buying and selling in the middle of a pandemic, with two babies... you NEED Pat! She walked us through every step of the process, answered all our questions and made us comfortable. I can’t thank her enough for selling our first home and helping us find our forever home. Michelle Y (Southbury, CT)
Pat is friendly, professional and will get the job done. Responded to queries & questions promptly. Will give you advice on how to stage your house correctly. Our house sold on our first day of showings! Lynn B (Oxford, CT)
My wife and I were very pleased with the services provided by Pat and are glad we choose her as our realtor. From the first interview, she was more polished and prepared to help us with the listing process than several other local realtors. She is very responsive when you call and works hard for your best interests. We had some immediate offers within a few days of listing which ultimately ended up with a cash offer. I want to express again how highly we recommend her as a choice of realtor. She also provided a lot of advice on how to stage the house for showings. David M (Middlebury, CT)
One of the hardest workers I ever met. Amazing job. She sold our home and helped us purchase our current home. Everything was done professionally and in a timely manner. One happy family thank you pat! Shawn J (Woodbury, CT)
We enjoyed working with Pat. Right from the start we knew that she is extremely knowledgeable especially in selling homes in Oxford. She has a proven track record and has many tools that she utilizes to maximize exposure. She offered many recommendations for home improvements and we listened and did everything she suggested and we had two offers after 23 days on the market ( during the covid-19 pandemic). We had a very positive experience working with Pat and her full time assistant and we definitely recommend her. Thanks Pat! Lynn S (Oxford, CT)
Pat knows the area well and how to price homes. I followed her instructions and was pleased every step of the way. Removing most of our belongings to stage the home for great photos was key. Pat knew exactly what to do. She is straight forward which I greatly appreciated. Helen M (Oxford, CT)
We were extremely satisfied with Pat Blanko when we sold a house last year in Redding. Based upon her efficiency in handling that sale, we contracted with her to sell a house in Norwalk which she did in what must be record time AND at full asking price. Pat and her dedicated and extremely proficient team were right there to pitch in through the whole process when I needed on site help and could not be there in person. Pat continues to be the absolute best sales agent I have ever had and makes the most impossibly nerve wracking task of selling a property a pleasure. I've said it before but it bears repeating. You will be pleasantly rewarded when you use Pat for all of your real estate needs. Simply put, she is THE BEST! Fred V. (Norwalk, CT)
Pat sold our home in 1 day, she relieved so much stress, saved us money and time that we did not have. She was very easy to work with, professional and very well known in the area, we highly recommend Pat! Jennifer R (Oxford, CT)
Great Realtor! The Queen of Oxford Real Estate! Got our house sold with no nonsense. Was straight forward and to the point! Thank you Pat Blanko. Very Organized. Kat S (Oxford, CT)
Pat has extensive knowledge of the area and the market - she worked with us over several months to get our house sold, working through several issues and potential buyers. Highly recommend her for selling your house! She just gets it done... Meg L (Oxford, CT)
Pat is very knowledgeable and her 30+ years experience is priceless. She had a plan to sell our house and got it done! We are truly happy with our experience and couldn’t have done it without her. Cindy R. (Southbury, CT)
House was on market with another realtor for 6 months with no activity. Then I listed with Pat and within 1 month the property was sold - for more than asking price! Rich D. (Seymour, CT)
We hired Pat based on the feedback we received from others that used her to list and sell their homes in our area. She understands the area and market value and did a great job on getting our home listed and sold quickly.
Brian M. (Oxford, CT)
Pat Blanko provided much insight as we prepared to sell our home. Her experience and knowledge was invaluable as she guided us through the entire process. We highly recommend her. She gets the job done!
Lisa L (Seymour, CT)
Pat was very knowledgeable and great to work with. We highly recommend her.
Pat sold the house within a week and found the right buyer. She was very good at advising us on how to present the home and prepare it for showings. We had two offers
John L. (Oxford, CT)
If you are looking for a house in Oxford and nearby areas Pat is your realtor. She knows area very well and will give you a valuable advice. She is a top realtor. Never had a problem with scheduling appointments and showings. Her office does excellent job with paperwork. Knows a lot of realtors in the area and it helps with negotiation process. I dealt with other realtors before and Pat is most professional and knowledgeable. We just got a single house in Oxford and it went real smooth with Pat's help. I would recommend her especially if you don't have a lot of experience in buying/selling houses as you going to need a lot of advise.
Steve B. (Southbury, CT)
Simply put, Pat Blanko and her right-hand woman are magnificent! Pat is extremely knowledgeable about the Southbury market and all neighboring towns. She has great ideas about house staging and isn?t afraid to tell you to move something! I was impressed with her marketing and think that was a vital part of selling our home. From professional photography to open houses, she stayed on top of it all to make sure it sold quickly. We listed at the end of February when there was still some snow on the ground and the second it melted, she had new pictures taken to put on the listing.
Pat is very professional, responsive and knowledgeable. She helped make a very stressful process easier and we ended up selling our home in about a 3 month time frame. If you are looking to sell, I highly recommend Pat Blanko and her team!
April F. (Southbury, CT)
Because of Pat's experience and her advise for staging, my home showed beautifully and looked great in the photos. I sold fast! I recommend her expertise to anyone who is wanting to sell. Thanks Pat!
Catherine N. (Seymour, CT)
Pat was always available to answer questions, was very accommodating to our time schedule for meetings, and kept us updated throughout the buying process.
Jeff G. (Oxford CT)
Pat was a pleasure to work with! She was incredibly thorough in walking us through the process of getting our home listed for sale, and continued to be prompt in responding to any questions we had along the way. For a process that can be stressful and emotional, she was reassuring whenever a concern presented itself. And from listing the house to closing on the sale, it was just around a 2 month process. We're very thankful that this went so smoothly, in large part to the help and services Pat provided!
Lynn L (Oxford, CT)
I searched for a realtor to help us sell our house in a limited time frame. After research we contacted Pat Blanko. Pat has the ability to help you sell your home quickly and efficiently. Best advice we can give is to listen to Pat, follow up on her suggestions and then let Pat do what she does best. Everything from the advice, pictures, virtual tour, advertising, was top notch. Pat has earned her excellent reputation and we would highly recommend her to help you sell your home. Thank you Pat you helped to make our dreams come true.
Shirley V (Beacon Falls, CT)
Pat is extremely knowledgeable and a wealth of information. She was extremely supportive. She answered all our questions in a timely manner. She was professional and made our selling experience a stress free one!
Karen P (Stratford, CT)
Pat is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and dedicated. She is patient and understanding and really tunes in to your real estate needs. I enjoyed working with her so much that I've used her three times! Allie H (Oxford, CT)
She is knowledgeable about marketing property and reliable in getting your home ready for a quick sale. She kept us informed every day and our buyer gave an offer within two weeks of our signing with her. Since we agreed to the offer she has continued to be involvedone and today we had the closing. We hired her on a recommendation and will define try refer others to her.
Jane H (Seymour, CT)
Pat was the second agent we used. The first one had our house on the market for the first year (2015) and it did not sell. In 2016 we decided to use Pat as our listing agent (having already met her and seen many homes thru her). She was professional, organized and confident. Pat was able to sell our house in a town that she was not too familiar with, plus our yard was not practical and turned many buyers off the first time around. She was able to do all this while simultaneously helping us buy our new home. Both transactions went amazingly well and the timing was perfect. In total it took her less than five months to wrap up both of our transactions. We literally closed on both houses on the same day! I highly, highly recommend Pat. She knows what she is doing and she does it very well! Lucy S. (Hamden, CT)
Pat Blanko was very professional, always available to answer questions. She gave me great advice on how to get the house ready for sale and sold it sooner than I expected. Just in time for Christmas, what a gift.
What a great job, she is the best. I highly recommend Pat to anyone who wants to sell their house."
Louise P. (Oxford, CT)
"We sold our house and needed to find a new home within a very short period of time. We looked to move into the Great Hill area of Seymour CT. and contacted Pat Blanko and explained our urgent situation.. She was incredibly efficient and responsive. Her follow thru was remarkable which led to a very brief and stress free process to a closing within 60 days.
We highly recommend Pat"
Fran D. (Seymour, CT)
"Pat was very professional and knowledgeable. She is a hard worker and very responsive! She was very experienced and really didn't express her opinion but rather let you form your own. She always knew when to step back and let you be. We worked with her for 6 months, selling our home and buying our new home. She really never got impatient when sometimes she had every right to be. Job well done!"
Eliza M. (Southbury, CT)
"Pat was outstanding throughout the process of selling our home. Pat was extremely knowledgeable about the local market and was instrumental in guiding us though the listing process. The process was efficient and smooth from start to finish and our house sold very quickly. We would highly recommend Pat!"
Matt A (Seymour, CT)
"Pat was very easy to work with, very professional and very honest. She gave us good advice. All of our phone calls/texts and emails were quickly answered."
Linda C (Oxford, CT)
"Pat made everything very easy, it was a pleasure. we were new to the home buying experience, and she had a lot of experience so it went real well. My wife and I could not be happier with the new home, and Pat and the former owners made the situation, which could have been a nightmare,
into a walk in the park"
Chris P (Oxford, CT)
"Very knowledgeable of the market and the area. Make the process easier and pleasant. Will recommend her to my family and friends. She made the experience better for me and my family."
Brenda S. (Southbury, CT)
"Our house turned out to be a very difficult house to sell. Pat went out of her way to market the property and get people in to view it. She conducted several open houses and managed to get many people in to view the house. She was in constant contact with us through the whole process. She also anticipated potential problems and alerted us to take measures to move the process along. We recommend her highly."
MaryR K. (Seymour, CT)
"Pat Blanko knows exactly how a house needs to look in order to get a quick sale. She works for you and gets the most money possible for your house as well. She has so much experience and made this whole process of selling my house so smooth. I would highly recommend Pat to anyone who is selling their house"
Catherine T. (Seymour, CT)
Pat's knowledge of the area, her skill in managing details, her sensitivity to our needs and concerns, and especially her guidance in navigating the process of our house sale was invaluable. We had an older home with a unique personality that sold in less than three months. We are grateful to Pat and her very professional staff for bringing this transaction to such a satisfying conclusion!! Joan H.
Pat guided us when preparing our house for sale, helping us decide where best to invest our money and efforts. We followed her advice on staging the home which helped a lot in getting a relatively quick offer. She also prepared us for the current real estate marked providing good comps for our listing price, and for a quick negotiation when an offer came in. Pat kept in touch through the contract, inspection, and closing process, all of which went smoothly. For us, Pats experience and knowledge of the business proved to match the high ratings she consistently receives. Tom S.
Pat knows the market and will get the job done. Her very specific recommendations regarding thorough cleaning, and her advice on how to best highlight the home's strengths enabled us to set a realistic selling price. That price enabled us to obtain an offer quickly. Sue G.
Pat Blanko is such an amazing and experienced realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable and her negotionation skills are top notch. Her suggestions for photos and handling the sale of our house and the purchase of two others exemplified her abilities. We have recommended Pat to anyone who asks for a realtor and we have listed the sale of our second home with her again. Mandy B.
Pat and her assistant make an awesome team and are pleasant to work with. Pat is straight with you on what needs to be done if you want to sell your home quick. We had ours up for sale for many months on 2015 and finally took it off the market. No bids. She sold it in 2016 in under a month. We also bought a home through Pat. Highly, highly recommended!!! Jon S.
Pat, along with her assistant, were instrumental in the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. Communication is critical at times and there was never an issue getting in touch with either of them. We are very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend using her and her team in the future. Matt M.
Pat is very extremely knowledgeable, professional and resourceful. She was able to expedite my home sale and subsequent new home purchase in record time. Everything was seamless and right on time. I highly recommend Pat Blanko. Vickie M.
Very Professional with her finger on the pulse of real estate in Oxford, Ct and the surrounding area. She helped us sell a house and we have resigned a contract with her to continue to market additional lots that we have for sale. Joe Z.
Pat does an outstanding job coordinating the buying process. She leads both the buyers and the sellers through the process with ease. She stays in close contact and provides honest and relevant feedback. During our home search she showed us over 15 different properties that exactly matched our long and complex wish list. She was patient and helpful. And in the end, we purchased a house that Pat recommended to us based on her knowledge of who we were and what we were looking for. Ray P.
I could not be more pleased to have hired Pat Blanko to list and sell my home in Southbury, CT. The level of professionalism and attentiveness from both Pat and Tracey was truly outstanding. Recommendations for work to be done were delivered in an honest and appropriate manner, even when the message was not so easy to hear. Phone calls, emails and texts received speedy, sensible replies. Showings and feedback were handled in an organized fashion. The results speak for themselves: within 4 weeks, an offer which came to fruition was received, despite the fact that we were in the midst of the holiday season. There is a reason why Pat Blanko is a top agent in our market area, competently guiding so many of our neighbors to "sold." She absolutely is the real deal. Stephanie M.
We bought our home from Pat six years ago and she just sold it for us this week. Throughout the six years, we remained close to Pat, who was always ready with remodeling advice, recommendations for service providers, and explanations of local zoning and real estate laws. In short, once you hire her she is your realtor for the long-haul. And that's what sets her apart: her business model is built on having lasting relationships with her clients. My husband and I unequivocally recommend her as a diligent, knowledgeable and client-centered realtor. J.W.
We had a difficult house to sell, an antique Colonial on a busy road. Several other realtors were unsuccessful selling the property before we contacted Pat. Immediately after she took over our listing, we began to see an increase in showings. After a few short weeks we received an offer which we accepted. She guided us through the whole process with her expertise and made the transition smooth and worry free. Have and will continue to highly recommend Pat Blanko. Mike G.
Pat and her assistant were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They were very knowledgeable about the local area and worked with us step by step to find the perfect home. I would highly recommend using. H.P.
We bought our first home several years ago and used Pat. She led us through the process of buying our first home. We were so happy to work with her that when it came time to purchase a larger home we knew exactly who we would call. She listed our first home and helped us on our hunt and purchase of our new home again. She again guided us through the process flawlessly. Mike F.
Pats persistence and ability to get my home seen by the maximum number of potential buyers got the job done. Her years of experience have afforded her an intimate knowledge of the market and a vast network of contacts, and this was invaluable. Andrea P.
Pat and her team were very professional. She was prompt in answering our questions and guiding us through the selling process. She knows the local market and was able to sell our home quickly. Sue V.
I am a professional housing developer working in CT for 20+ years. I have known Pat for over 10 years and have listed many homes for sale with her. Of all of the local agents she has the best marketing program with the broadest reach to help properly expose properties to the market. This allows her to achieve the highest selling prices in the shortest amount of time. Pat is also an experienced agent and negotiator who works tirelessly to get the job done no matter what hurdles are thrown in front of her. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to list a home or property in her marketing areas. Scott V.
Pat Blanko helped us list and successfully sell our home. She was a wealth of knowledge and sound advise as we went through the process. She explained all the details and was very responsive and timely with all of our questions. We struggled with the negotiations with our buyers at the end but Pat worked with the buying agent to help the negotiations move forward to a mutually acceptable price and deal. We would recommend Pat to anyone seeking to list their house for sale. Allison H.
Pat did a great job selling my home quickly! And when the first deal fell through, she scrambled and resold in 11 days! Her methods are VERY effective. The staging she suggested is not the easiest to live in, but the goal is to sell, not keep living there! Her methods work! Her marketing is thorough and robust! She is very responsive. John E.
Our situation was not the normal. My husband, myself and our four children moved from out of state. We did have some knowledge of the area, but were very impressed by Pat's knowledge of the area and surrounding areas. Pat worked with our crazy schedules and showed us a lot of attention. She understood what we were looking for and guided us in the right direction. Pat spent a lot of time with us showing us around and we never felt pressured. We believe we were in very caring, attentive and patient hands with Pat. We are very thankful for Pat and her team for making this transition a smooth one. Dana H.
Pat provided very sound advise with realistic expectations. There were over 30 showings within the first two weeks of the listing. A follow on reduction in price produced a qualified buyer that met our agreed upon price range. Pete H
Pat Blanko went above and beyond to coordinate with three other listings to sell our home. She is very professional, caring and compassionate in what she does. Selling our home was a challenge, we are very grateful she was in our corner. She is an excellent agent and we would highly recommend her to all. Great job done. Thanks, Jim and Gail B.
I met Pat at an open house for a house that ultimately went to another bidder. I was impressed with her willingness to let me look around this property and her openness and realistic market outlook. About a month later she made me aware of this new property and upon looking at it, I made a bid. She was helpful with dealing with the previous owner and with getting all the inspections done on schedule to close. I would highly recommend Pat and her staff if you are looking in the Oxford, CT market! Bruno T.
Pat Blanko brings her integrity, compassion, and depth of experience together to help her clients through every step of the home selling process. We chose Pat to sell our home based on her experience and the positive marketing we saw on Zillow by her firm William Raveis. We called Pat Blanko, and she sold our home! DeeDee N.
Pat goes above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate professional. She is very hard working, personable, and knows her business inside and out. She always makes contact and keeps you in the loop. She gives you pointers on what should be done to get your house to sell fast. Follow her lead if you're looking to make a quick sale. She sold our house in 3 days!!! Would definitely use Pat again, she is great! Erin E.
Before we discovered Pat, we had our home listed with a different agent. We had 3 showings in 6 months. After switching to Pat, we had more showings in 1 week than in 6 months thanks to her extensive marketing plan and knowledge of the market. Pat had an entire team of people working with us including her personal assistant. She replied to our emails and text messages right away. Thanks to her marketing plan our home sold in 4 months!… Darren W.
Pat Blanko and her team get the job done! We had an offer 13 days after our home hit MLS. Pat knew how to price our home to sell. Professional photography is KEY. Pat's advice is golden. Listen to her! She is candid, honest and hard working. Everyone on her team is to be commended. Highly recommend!!! James S.
My wife and I employed Pat to handle three real estate transactions for us. Prior to getting married, we both had homes to sell plus wanted to purchase a new one jointly. It was a very busy time for us, but Pat helped to eliminated some of our stress. Pat met with both of us, went through our homes and gave us valuable advice to help get our homes ready for sale. During a difficult housing market, both of our homes sold quickly. We feel it was because Pat was honest with us. She priced our right and this attracted many potential buyers to the properties. Pat wasn't afraid to tell us "how it was" and offered us much guidance during the entire process. When purchasing a home, Pat didn't pressure or push us in any particular direction. She let us choose the home that was right for us. We couldn't have asked for anyone better!!! Matt R.
Pat was an amazing asset in helping us buy our first home!! She was informative, patient and diligent, as well as caring, when it came to all of our questions and concerns, and made sure that we got a great deal!!! She did a great job!! Her assistant was also great, and helped throughout the whole process!! We highly recommend their services!!! Tricia R.
After two previous realtors from two different agencies and a year of our house being on the market with very few showings, we signed with Pat and had a showing within 24 hours. From there, we had several more showings (most of which were very interested) and a buyer within two months. We listed our house with Pat in August of 2013 and had our closing in mid-October. She gave us specific instructions on how to best present the house and her photographers made all the difference. People's first impression of a house and their decision to request a showing all start with the pictures and Pat's people definitely came through. We are very thankful to Pat for the quick sale and would highly recommend her to others. Kristin F.
Best realtor we ever had. Called her because of her experience. She knew exactly how to show a home to its best advantage and in our case it worked. She's also able to read prospective buyers. She knew when a person was really looking to buy or just looking for ideas. If you follow her expert suggestions (as we did) and if it is priced correctly she will sell it. She is warm and cares about her clients. Will help you with anything connected with selling your home. And most important she is honest ,knowledgeable ,and knows the market. I definitely recommend her to anyone selling their home and would use her again if I were back in her area.… Anne H.
Thanks to Pat Blanko, we sold our home in 2 days! We had a great experience working with Pat to sell our home in Oxford. She was immediately responsive to my first phone call and within a few short days was in our home and talking us through the listing/selling process. Pat had lots of suggestions about how to prep our home for showing and we took many of her recommendations. Pat always responded quickly, answered all our questions, and was very straightforward in her ideas and opinions. She had a great team, too: her assistant was great following up on details and the photographers amazing photos made our home look wonderful. We would certainly use Pat again and would recommend her without hesitation for those looking for an agent who knows Oxford and the surrounding area. Julie M.
