This is my story!

I was born second of nine children in Nashua, NH.  My dad was a small businessman who raised and provided for us running a bicycle shop..through our backyard to his shop.  I was selling bicycles when I was 7 years old, when they were still toys $19.95 for a 20" Schwinn.  As you can see, selling has been apart of my life for a very long time...

I attended Catholic schools through my freshman year in college(Chemistry major)... Then I spread my wings and moved to Boston..shortly after meeting Jay, my current and only husband...some of you remember the 60's!!! need I say more?

Did a few semesters at Northeastern University more sciences... while working at various restaurants, Anthony's Pier IV for one. Jay worked in resaturants, then the Parker House Hotel first in the Last Hurrah..then moved on to Banquet Manager.

Started a family...3 fabulous kids!, worked in restaurants in various capacities... to be able to be home with the kids. including Dining room manager, short order cook and sous chef.

Started a catering business..then opened a restaurant... TOUGH TOUGH BUSINESS...

2 years of 24/7 we closed the restaurant and headed for new careers... back to school this time me for accounting and business while Jay for computers.

While in school ..answered a newspaper ad for Real Estate... Jay got a job with New York State...and the rest of the story is all uphill...

Life is Great!

On the lighter side!

One of my very favorite pastimes is spending time with my grandchildren and family. I also enjoy traveling all over the world with my husband and best friend, Jay. We have enjoyed visiting 80 countries so far!. This link will show you all the places we've been:

We downhill ski

Just got certified for Skuba...

Life is very very good!

Keeping up!

Knowing what is going on in the business of the neighborhoods I work in is top on my list of keeping up to date.

The Capital Region Business Review: reporting, networking opportunities, breakfasts and assorted events is a start.

Keeping in touch with current and past customers gives me insight into current events and affairs.

    Patsy is very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. She is responsive, professional and yet at the same time very personal. She helped me find a mortgage broker, an attorney for closing and also negotiated with the builder with my best interest in mind. She even accompanied me to stores to make selections regarding my house. Whenever I had a question, she was just a phone call away. I feel I relied on her to some extent and I am very very grateful. Without her assistance, I can't imagine the entire transaction would've gone this smoothly. Highly recommended.

    Patsy Whitney is a very knowledgeable person in the Capitol District Housing Market and will take the time to sit down with you to discuss your selling options according to what the Housing market is doing at that time. She does not rest until your Home sells, she is in constant touch with area Realtors to find that perfect buyer for your home. My Wife and I are very pleased that we found Patsy because, in spite of a poor sellers market here in the Capitol Region for 2014 she was still able to sell our home within the 6 month contract period. No matter what type of home you have Patsy Whitney will find a buyer for you. Patsy also has a Co-worker named Marcia who will answer all of your questions when Patsy cannot be available, but if you leave Patsy a voice message she will get back to you by the end of the day, and will often touch base with you during the weekend. So give her a call, We Highly Recommend Her, and you won't be disappointed.

    Patsy is very knowledgable in both real estate in general and the Capital District specifically. She, along with her assistant Marcia, are very responsive. Patsy's honesty is beyond reproach and is very transparent when discussing the details of the transaction. I would wholly represent Patsy as either a buyer or seller of anyone's property.

    We live on Oreshan Ct and we got everything we were told we were getting. In fact when we had a discrepancy with the builder, Patsy stepped in and took care of it herself and kept the deal moving forward. The quality of house that Cillis provides is worth the extra money and our experience with Patsy was very positive as she was highly knowledgeable and very quick to respond to questions, etc. Our friends that also live on Oreshan Ct are also very happy with how the properties turned out as well.

    Patsy was fabulous to work with, and a total professional in all our dealings. I worked with Patsy over a course of several months as she helped to sell my parents' home of 50 years. Not being there locally (I live elsewhere), and assisting us while my mother moved to another state, Patsy was flexible, responsive, experienced, and very helpful in pointing to other top service providers we needed, and more. I highly recommend Patsy!

    Patsy was very professional and personable. She sold our home in one weekend which had been on the market with another realtor for a year. It was a pleasure working and dong business with her. I would definitely work with her and refer her to other friends.

    I called Patsy on her cell phone at 8PM on a Sunday night about one of her listings. She actually called me back the same night and set up an appointment to see the house the very next day! Her years of experience made the transaction very quick and smooth. I would not hesitate to recommend her in a heart beat. Thanks again Patsy.

    Patsy is the ultimate professional. She goes above and beyond to help out such as when she dropped off signs we could use to advertise our moving sale. She is fantastic at communicating, keeping us in the loop, and staying on top of the details. I highly recommend Patsy to anyone selling or buying a home.

    Patsy was definitely the right choice. She showed our house numerous times and sold it within a week, along with the house across the street. She is a knowledgeable professional, versed in all areas, including what it takes to sell and what buyers are looking for. Her responsiveness was impressive, too. Patsy also sold my parents' home with the same timeframe and professionalism more than 20 years ago. She's just gotten better with time.

    Patsy is a genuine real estate professional. She is prompt, courteous, focused and fair in her analysis of the circumstances. She alone prepared our house for the listing and did an admirable job. She kept communicating via letters, e-mails regularly and she provided hope when the mood was down. Needless to say that she is a seasoned doer! I would recommend her without any hesitation and would ask her again if we needed to buy or sell a property. We will always remember her kind approach in helping us to sell our home.

    Patsy helped us find our first home a few years ago. She was very knowledgeable about the market, but more importantly, got to know us and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. We recently sold that home because we wanted to upgrade, and asked Patsy to help us with our transition. We accepted an offer within one week of listing and were able to close in under one month. We are now on our way to building our second home with Patsy's help. She is an amazing agent!!

    I would highly recommend Patsy to sell or buy a home. Patsy is extremely professional and honest. Patsy gave us an honest assessment of our house, and we unfortunately engaged an agent who just told us what we wanted to hear. Patsy sold our house in a tough market and working with her was a very pleasant experience.

    We contracted with Patsy because she had been successful selling another house in our development. From our signing with her until our closing our house was on the market only 3 months. We received 97% of our asking price and were pleased that the process went as quickly as it did. At our first meeting she came prepared with comps and her suggestions on marketing our house were excellent. She guided us through the process and, overall, things went smoothly. We are in our new home and are pleased with Patsy and the job she did. We would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their house .

    Patsy made the process of buying my first home incredibly easy and very enjoyable. She provided me with guidance and recommendations with every step of the purchasing process. She was on top of everything and was in contact with me daily. Before I could ask a question, she already had it answered!

    I would absolutely recommend Patsy. As first time buyers, my wife and I were inexperienced in every aspect of buying a house. Not only did Patsy walk us through the process step by step, she was patient in answering every question we had, whether it was a small or larger issue. She was even kind enough to send us mailing stamps with our names and new address.
    Without a doubt Patsy made the transition of buying our dream home that much more easier by her professionalism and patience. We could not thank her enough and would strongly urge any buyer or seller to work with Patsy!

    Patsy carefully reviewed all my requirements, assisted me remotely while I was preparing my current home for sale in another state, met with me promptly when I was ready to look at local properties and showed all available ones I had expressed an interest in. I did my homework and so, with her help, I was able to make an offer on a home that met all my key requirements. From visiting the first possible property of interest to closing was accomplished in a single month! She advised on local real estate transaction practices and recommended a list of inspectors and attorneys who proved reliable and fair priced.

    Patsy is a great agent in creating a portfolio for your house. She prepared a video and ad on Wednesday, posted the information at 5:00pm Wednesday night, had a interested buyer view the house Thursday at 10:00am and I had an offer on Thursday afternoon that was house was sold in less than 24 hours. It was the advertisement and the right pricing that made all the difference!

    We would definately recommend Patsy as an agent. We met with several agents and by far she came the most prepared. Patsy is one of the best in the real estate business and after meeting with her it was clear why. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to price a property right, which is key. Our home was listed and within a month we had an offer. She was very quick to respond to any calls or emails and was a helpful resource in both selling and buying. She also works with compasion and realizes that buying and selling a home is a very important decision for a family and puts her clients needs first. Overall Patsy made the process great. She is a great agent and wonderful person.

    the Mortgage Challenge

    Mortgage brokers play only a part in the process of buying a home. As an experienced realtor, I find that the meeting I have with buyers at the very beginning of our relationship is the most crucial. Explaining the entire process gives the buyer the confidence and the comfort level they need to make the decisions they will have to in looking for, finding, negotiating and financing their home.
