"Patty was a joy to work with , She was warm and easily approachable. She asked us questions and took notes because she wanted to get us what we were looking for and she made time available to cater to every whim and when we would change our minds, she would go back to the drawing board and come back with new solutions and at the end we got exactly what we had dreamed about and Patty made the process go as smoothly as possible. It is easy to get some one who is just about the sail and the financial rewards but Patty would give her well meaning advise and without the frills and fancies and let the client make their decision without any pressure and that is rare attribute to find now a days.

I would recommend Patty without hesitation to any one who is looking for a good realtor who is committed, caring and determined to bend over backwards to deliver what she knows her clients want and who makes the process as easy as possible." - Nennaya

"Patty was a strong force in the swift sale of our property. Her patience as we went through the preparation to sell began with a relationship nearly one and a half years in the making, She made valuable suggestions in downsizing efforts, home improvements, even paint selections with a team of realtors/decorators, to facilitate the best presentation of our home. The final staging conducted by Patty and her team made our home look better than ever modern and fresh while highlighting the best features of our property. This resulted in a quick path from listing to SOLD. Once we were poised to sell, Patty did the job of marketing & selling our home efficiently, performing necessary negotiations utilizing her creativity & direct focused approach." - Teri and John

"With six corporate moves behind us, managing the sale of our home on our own could have been a daunting experience. However, Patty Hellrigel quelled all concerns. From our first meeting through to the sale of our house, Patty demonstrated a clear and precise knowledge of the market within our immediate neighborhood and the community at large. She spent time answering our questions, discussing potential options, and then presented an excellent marketing plan. The plan was not just on paper. Patty carried through with the exceptional resources she has access to including a dynamic home stager and photographer. We are truly grateful to Patty for her integrity and work ethic, two factors essential to us in choosing a real estate agent. From beginning to end, Patty was sincere and open in telling us what we needed to do for the sale of our house in today’s market. Based on her Knowledge, experience, and advice, we sold our house at the asking price in the first 24 hours on the market. " - Carmine and Don

"We met Patty when we were looking to purchase a property in Ridgefield. She was very helpful and professional and help us find the house of our dreams. She understand what you are looking for and do not waste your time with places which do not match your requirements. She always gets back to you promptly. Since we were new in town she went beyond the scope of her duties but giving us valuable information about the town, contractors, suppliers and so on. I am still in touch with Patty and she keeps us in the loop as far as the Ridgefield market. I recommended her to several friends who were thrilled with her and if we sell the house at any point she will have the listing without question." - Karine

"Patty Hellrigel is knowledgeable about all the aspects of selling /buying a house. We used her as our agent when we bought our current house. She was on top of everything. Patty put us in contact with top notch inspectors for house, septic, water, etc. in addition to all this she negotiated a great deal. It was a very smooth process. Doing such a great job on the purchase we had Patty sell our previous house. She came in and told us what we needed to do to meet the current market requirements. We did everything she recommended. Not only did we sell our house before it was officially listed but received above asking. I highly recommend Patty Hellrigel."

"Patty was knowledgeable and she knew the area very well. She was responsive to any questions we had and was always available to go out and look at houses. We were very happy with our purchase and the process. We would recommend Patty." - Annie

"Patty was introduced to us by my husband’s office colleague when we first moved to Ridgefield from oversees. As a family with very little local knowledge, Patty made sure we had much information as possible in determining which suburb met our family requirements. She was able to find us a rental ticking most of our wishlist. We didn’t hesitate to contact her when we started looking for a property to purchase as we knew we were in good hands. She was very responsive in coordinating with us via email and also setting up appointments for us as we were overseas and made the house searching experience a less stressful one as we were working on a tight timeline. She was able to find us a home that ticked almost all our requirements and we couldn’t be happier. We were able to own a house within 3 months since we first commenced the search and all thanks to Patty. She really helped us to focus on what was truly important for us as it can be very confusing at times as no two properties are the same and it’s easy to lose focus at times with the options available. She was also helpful in negotiating as we were working with a very tight timeline. We love our new home, thanks Patty." - Chamath & Kumarini

"Patty patiently showed me every home in my price range. She wrote up multiple offers and after about three months one was excepted. I’m very happy with the home I’m in and I never felt pressure to purchase a home I wasn’t interested in." - Brian

"Patty is the ultimate professional! From beginning to middle to end, Patty did a phenomenal job for us. From the start, she was responsive, timely, and organized. Patty had reams of data available from "yesterday" to "12 months ago" to help us determine our price, our competition, and the overall pulse of our local market. Patty was also VERY good at preparing our home for both photography and to show live to bring out the very best of our home. Patty managed the showing and offer processes very well, with real time communications with us to answer potential buyers questions, and with her knowledgeable thoughts on each offer we eventually received. Finally, Patty kept the contract and closing process moving forward quickly, again with immediate communication where needed. The end result: We are very happy, and she made this whole process much easier than we anticipated! Thank you Patty" - Joyce & Bill Schiffer
