I just sold my home in Woodbury with the invaluable help of Pat Blanko. Pat was straight forward and in tune with the market. She managed expectations and is honest. There was never a time that I reached out to Pat that she was not available, within minutes, on the phone…or a text to tell you when she would be….that goes a long way in my book. Selling a home can be very stressful, but Pat is a veteran that has experience. Bringing in potential buyers is one thing, but, I found her especially helpful during and after the negotiations and signed contract…when many deals can fall apart..She is the voice of reason and calm, when I certainly needed it most…and no matter what, Pat, leaned into the deal, never shying away.
Would I use Pat again? Absolutely! And I highly recommend her and her very capable and dedicated assistant Tracy to anyone looking to sell their home. First Class, a very hard worker..Real-estate sales is no part time gig for Pat Blanko. Andree D. (Woodbury, CT)
I highly recommend Pat Blanko if you are considering selling your home, as she is the best! Pat was an amazing agent from day 1, and believed that we could sell our home for more than we expected. She did a thorough assessment of our home and gave us recommendations for staging it. We followed every recommendation, put our house on the market, had 2 offers within 10 days and sold our home above asking price. Pat is an expert; she is knowledgeable, honest and responsive! It was a pleasure to work with Pat and we are so grateful for her kindness and guidance throughout this process! Jessica F. (Southbury, CT)
Pat Blanko was a tremendous help and was the reason why we sold our house within 7 days above asking price. She was very knowledgeable and coached us through the entire process. Paul S (Southbury, CT)
Pat recently helped me sell my condo that I had been renting. This was about a 2 year process as I had to evict terrible tenants before I could sell. Pat was right there with me throughout the entire ordeal. She was caring and compassionate, and always professional. She treated my wife and I like we were part of her family. She always took the time to help us when we had questions, and truly went above and beyond. She's not simply a good realtor, she's a great person who happens to be a realtor. I cannot recommend Pat highly enough, and I cannot think of a realtor doing more to help my family than she did. I was fortunate to have had Pat not only as my realtor, but by my side through an extremely difficult eviction process. Thankfully, Pat made the process of selling remarkably easy. Thank you so much Pat. Mike C (Seymour, CT)
Pat went above and beyond to help us sell our parents’ home. She was smart, savvy, trustworthy and driven. Pat guided us when we weren’t sure of things and was thorough in her entire process she has years of experience and it shows. Highly recommend!! Kristen S. (Oxford, CT)
Pat was amazing during our relocation from NC into our new Oxford home, and allowed us to purchase our home long distance with her help and knowledge! We found her to be so knowledgeable and also trustworthy. She went to bat for our family! Knowing I was in good hands during a stressful time was invaluable. Collette J (Oxford, CT)
Pat was wonderful to work with. She has an excellent handle on assessing a home’s value and offered great advice for staging the house. She was responsive and explained everything about the process. Lori C (Oxford, CT)
Pat made the process of selling our house less stressful then what I thought it was going to be. She was always available to answer any questions we had, and had our home sold in a very short time. She was very easy to work with, professional and very well known in the Oxford area. I would highly recommend Pat! Charlotte W. (Oxford, CT)
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)
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)

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."

"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)

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 Tracey 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 Tracey, 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.
Working with Pat and her team was a pleasure. Her professionalism, knowledge and expertise are top notch. She was definitely the best agent to represent us and our home. We thank Pat and her entire team for their great work.
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.
