When we first met Rich Olson, he explained that his job is more service than sales. He proved that time and again with his thorough knowledge of the local market. Every time we viewed a new property Rich would ask questions that I didn’t even think to ask. This was extremely helpful since I was coming to North Dakota from New Mexico. Rich was incredibly patient while we searched for a home to accommodate my large family during a time that there just wasn’t a lot of options on the market. In the end, we found a great home that was perfect for us and we are loving it so far. The best part about working with Rich was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. He also paid us for purchasing a home!! We would recommend him to anyone. My favorite Rich saying … “I’m not happy until you’re happy”
To put it in simple terms, Dan did a great and thoroughly professional job with the sale of our home. This was not a typical sale. We live out of state and though we were able to fly in to assist with repairs and improvements Dan needed to orchestrate much of the work. He did a great job in helping us meet our goals, always being available and going the extra mile. We would highly recommend him for your future realty needs. Thanks Dan for everything.
Dan and his crew are close friends of mine, so call me biased, but I truly don’t think you will find a better real estate team than the group at James Patrick Real Estate. Whether it’s their dedicated service and willingness to always do what is right and best for their clients, the honesty and fairness of their pricing model, or the transparency and clarity of how they operate, they are the real deal! You will see it all from the first minute you sit down with them – their integrity, sincerity, and care – and you’ll most likely end up calling them “friends” in the end.
I don’t think most people that sell their house in a few weeks would say that their agent was underpaid. In this case, it was true. Our dynamic was very unique since we had moved across the country before the house went on the market. From keeping an eye on the contractor we hired to fix the house, to making sure the driveway was shoveled and the heat stayed on, Dan did it all. And Dan was always available to answer questions and helped us keep an even keel when our first buyer walked away. I can’t imagine another realtor being more accessible and available – and he charges less than other agents!
Dan is the man! I recently purchased my first home with his assistance. His patience and positive attitude helped me along the way. Dan also kept me informed and is always early for appointments. I bought a home that was being used as a rental and the tenants were extremely annoyed that they had to move. We encountered some resistance when we came for the inspection. Dan remained cool and diplomatic and we were able to complete the inspection. This guy has your best interests in mind!
Dan is absolutely the best! He was amazing to work with, flexible and easy to get a hold of with any questions. We were first time home buyers and he was very helpful along every step of the way.
Rich was amazing to work with! He helped sell our home and get us our new dream home. He was always available, helped us get a good price for selling our home and saved us a ton of money! Also he is knowledgeable in so many aspects that I felt very comfortable during the whole process. If there was something he didn’t know he could quickly get the answer. I never felt pressured to buy something that was out of my price range either. I would recommend rich to anyone who is looking for a realtor!
I would highly recommend James Patrick Real Estate to everyone. Dan made the entire process effortless for us.
We worked personally with Charley Planteen. The experience was great! She was honest, professional, and reliable. Her insight of the business was great. These were important to us but truly what we mostly loved about Charley was her excitement and love of her job. This is something you can perceive the first time you meet her. She was 24/7 available for questions and is truly down to earth and a reachable person. William and I are grateful for all of her hard work and just love her!
Dan and his team communicated with us clearly and quickly. They got right to the point and were always available when we had questions. We are so glad we had them sell our home! We’re already recommending Dan’s team to our friends.
Angela and I really appreciated Dan’s honesty! He will tell what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. Dan was also always on time and was available to take a call or text at any time. I would, and have, recommended Dan to anyone who asks.
Finding an honest and reliable realtor is something you should look for when you decide to buy or sell a home. I have had situations in the past that made me reluctant to trust someone to help me find and secure a purchase on a home. Needless to say, I found the right man for the job. Dan was the person I put my trust in and he exceeded above and beyond in helping me and my wife find our home. Why choose Dan to buy or sell a home? He works for YOU! There is no pressure and he listens and doesn’t push you into something you are uncomfortable with. He forms a relationship with you and uses his tools and expert knowledge to find exactly what you are looking for. As soon as a home hit the market Dan was calling and sending me information on homes and he adjusted his schedule so we could get on the property right away. He works for you in an honest and respectful way. He helped us put in a reasonable offer and negotiated and we got the house! I wouldn’t only recommend him to everyone I know who may be looking to buy or sell a home, but I know when I go to sell he is my guy. Simply put Dan is the Man! Thank you, Dan for helping me and my wife find our home!
Dan was a friend before he helped us sell a duplex, and remained one afterward – always a good sign! He was attentive, thorough, always on time, gave us time to think, and took a personal interest in getting us, and the buyer, a good and fair deal. I have recommended his services to many others and will continue to do so.
Dan Perrine is one of a kind! He is all about helping his clients and anyone around him. I have seen him go above and beyond numerous times. He is fantastic to work with, very easygoing and is always on top of everything. I highly recommend Dan!
We could not have had a better experience with James Patrick Real Estate. Dan was excellent to work with and always made us feel like we were his number 1 priority. We really enjoyed his calm, laid-back style which made the entire process go as smooth as possible. I could not recommend Dan enough to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. He is knowledgeable, professional, and will save you a bunch of money!!
I would suggest to anyone, that is looking to buy/sell a house to contact Dan Perrine. Dan was very helpful, he answered all of our questions and quickly took care of any concerns we had. We truly appreciated his laid-back selling style and his calming demeanor during a stressful time in our lives. We are first time home buyers and Dan was instrumental in making our families dream come true!!
Dan was excellent to work with. He was readily available to answer questions or give advice and made the selling experience low stress. I would highly recommend him and the James Patrick business model on selling homes.
My name is Shawn Gray. My wife and I had been looking for quite some time for the right piece of property. We either wanted one in town or on a great lake in northern Minnesota. Dan spent a lot of time showing many places, communicating thoroughly with us throughout the process and keeping us up to date on new pieces hitting the market that he thought may fit for us. He knew what we were looking for and was patient and consistent while trying to help us find “our property”. When the right lake place came on the market, Dan was there with us the entire way: driving the two hours during the initial showing, managing all the details, communicating with the seller’s agent, coordinating closing, etc. He was great. Very supportive, friendly and engaged during the entire process. It wasn’t just “another transaction” for him. He really cared. We absolutely love our new house and would truly recommend Dan to anyone who’s looking to find their own “right place”.
Dan has gone above and beyond expectations with regards to my entire real estate transaction. He has answered each one of my (many) questions thoroughly and accurately. He has remained objective and forward moving during occasional setbacks in the process. I have and will continue to recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I would highly recommend Dan Perrine, in fact, I already have. He was very easy to work with. Answered every call or returned calls in a very timely manner. When any issues arose, he had the answers or found them out for us. He put our interests before his. He was a very calming voice, in what at times was a very stressful situation. If I ever move again, he will be the first person I call.
Charley was more than wonderful than what I could imagine for a realtor. She went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone!
If I could give Dan a million ‘Thanks’, I would. He went above and beyond to help my family obtain our first home. His customer service and professionalism are beyond exemplary. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know who would be needing his service.
As a 1st time home buyer, I was overwhelmed at the thought of making such a large purchase. In my dealings with the team at James Patrick Real Estate, that was alleviated from the very beginning. Dan was immediately available to help me find the perfect house for me. His professional yet sensible approach to home buying made him a great agent. Rich then helped throughout the purchase & closing process, making it a very stress free experience. If you’re in the market to buy/sell a house, I highly recommend the team at James Patrick Real Estate!
Honest, efficient, knowledgeable, and a value that is unmatched. James Patrick Real Estate is a game changer. If your looking for a no B.S. real estate agent you need to talk to them. I have worked with many of the big real estate companies in the Fargo Moorhead area, either as a buyer or seller and all of them left me very disappointed. After my previous experiences I saw little value in the real estate service as a whole until I was referred to the great people at James Patrick. When listing our last house my wife and I trusted and followed all of their advice like replacing the entry doors. We staged it using their advise and paid for professional pictures like they advised. The end result was a full price offer within 24 hours. The night it showed up on the MLS there was literally a line of people waiting to get in the door to see it. To get that result a lot needed to line up, but one of the biggest contributing factors was trusting James Patrick Real Estate.
I’ve been involved in numerous business transactions with Dan over the 10 years I’ve known him. James Patrick Real Estate builds value for their clients. Conducting business with efficiency and integrity while passing along those savings to their clients never goes out of style. Their business model is second to none. I love JPRE’s approach to their commission structure. The clients finally get rewarded for a broker/agent working diligently and expediently to get a transaction closed that’s equitable for all parties.
This company is the real deal. I love the flat fee concept and it saved me a lot of money. Rich was very upfront, honest, and available. I would recommend James Patrick Real Estate to anyone!
The time I spend with Charley looking for a place was very good. She was always sending me listings and going to look at places. She was very patient with me and my wants. I will recommend her to anyone I know looking for a home. Her energy was very uplifting and a breath of fresh air!
We had met with 2 other realtors before choosing Dan. From the start Dan was up front and honest about everything we discussed when it came to selling our home. We did not feel pressured into doing anything we were not comfortable with and his knowledge of the market in this area was very impressive. His communication with us from start to finish was perfect. If he did not answer his phone we got a call back within 10 minutes. His level-headed calm approach to selling real estate is something that put our minds at ease while going through this process. We would recommend using Dan as your realtor whether you are looking to buy or sell. He does a great job!
I cannot stress enough of what an outstanding job Dan did with guiding me through the buying experience. Anytime I needed a question answered Dan was immediately on it and got me the information I needed. If you want a top-notch professional then Dan is your man. I was very, very pleased with his effort and professionalism. You won’t find anyone better so why go anywhere else. This guy knows what he’s doing.
From start to finish Dan did an amazing job. I was impressed with his ability to handle some situations with the other realtors and their clients. You only realize how good people are when things happen outside the norm. Dan’s communication throughout the whole process was quick, always keeping us in the loop. I couldn’t recommend a better person!
Dan and his team at James Patrick Real Estate did a phenomenal job on the sale of our home. He was extremely honest throughout the entire process, even if it was something we didn’t necessarily want to hear, which both my wife and I greatly appreciated. I have worked in both the mortgage and insurance industries and would recommend Dan and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. They have an innovative approach to the real estate industry and absolutely deliver on their promise of keeping their customers costs down while maintaining great service. I would recommend anyone buying or selling to sit down with Dan or someone from his team to learn for themselves what made James Patrick the right choice for our family.
Dan did a great job selling our home. Dan provided clear communication throughout the selling process and never felt pressed to do anything. I appreciate Dan listening to our questions and addressing them timely. Thanks Dan for your help!
Fantastic communication throughout the process and a fraction of the normal realtor charge. It’s an easy decision to work with them. Keep thousands of your dollars, in your pocket.
Dan was not only professional and knowledgeable but his demeanor made it a stress-free transaction from beginning to closing. He went as far as to climb up on my second story deck railing to double-check for possible hail damage to my roof. A+++ all the way. This is the Realtor you need when listing or buying a home!
Dan and the team at James Patrick Real Estate know the market, understand what makes a home sell, and give honest advice. This is a no BS approach to buying and selling Real Estate. If you are buying or selling you MUST have a conversation with Dan and team. If not, you’re just leaving cash on the table.
Number one reason to pick Rich, flat rate commissions! They don’t feel they need 3+% to list your house. It doesn’t hurt that he is a good guy that just wants to help you move your house, and is willing to do the little things to help you through it. My experience was great as ours went very fast.
Dan is an amazing guy! He was so helpful in our search for a new home. When we started the process, Dan ACTUALLY listened to what we were looking for in a home without interrupting. He did a great job keeping us updated on new houses on the market. He was extremely flexible when it came to taking us to look at houses. When we found our house, Dan was very helpful with any questions we had before and during the closing process. I would highly recommend Dan to any of my family and friends who are looking for a realtor!
Dan is an amazing agent. He is very professional and knowledgeable. I am very satisfied with his service and would recommend him to anyone who will be needing a great agent like Dan. Trust me, you will never be disappointed. His professionalism and great attitude are superb.
Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with! I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to help you find your dream home. If I had a question, he could answer it! He goes above and beyond when it comes to helping you find the home that is perfect for you. He’s more than a realtor, he’s your friend! He would always make time for anything I needed and if he couldn’t, he would rearrange his schedule to fit. I felt like I was his #1 priority! You will too! If you’re looking for a smooth buying process, Dan is definitely the right fit for you!
We are so pleased working with Dan Perrine. He is so personable, professional and honest. Dan answered all of our phone calls quickly and answered our questions. He has a fantastic team of professionals in all the right departments. We highly recommend Dan at James Patrick Real Estate to any buyer or seller. Thank you for a great, stress-free experience.
Dan makes you feel comfortable and is an honest agent that gives you the facts. He offers his opinion when asked and always has my needs into his schedule quickly.
Being involved with a company that values people and fairness over personal gain has changed my perception of success. James Patrick Real Estate offers a non-traditional fee structure that is incredibly rare and difficult to find in the Fargo-Moorhead metro!
As a first time home buyer, I really appreciated the guidance Dan provided during the entire process. He had great recommendations and worked with the builder to ensure that the finished product was done to my liking and on time. Most importantly, Dan was easy to work with during what can be a stressful time.
Truly a great experience. Felt very comfortable and he did not fit the stereotype of what I had thought previously. We couldn’t have been happier with his assistance. I would recommend to anyone just to sit down and have a conversation with Dan if you are looking at doing something with real estate.
James Patrick Real Estate will break the status quo on how the Red River Valley buys and sells homes. The personal touch coupled with the care and concern of the best interests of the customer is like no other. If you want to save money, be represented with your needs and desires, and want to have a true relationship with a realtor who will put you first I encourage you to look no further.
