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!
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.
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.
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.
Rich was great to work with! He made the process easy and exceeded my expectations in doing so. Not only is Rich a wonderful realtor, he’s a great easy going guy. During the initial walk through, he helped point out things that he’d recommend fixing or touching up with paint etc. He answered all my questions and went over each offer in detail as they came in. I couldn’t be more pleased with Rich, he’s honest, straight forward and without a doubt he has his clients best interest in mind. He’s what anyone looking to buy or sell a house should look for in a realtor.
John & Jen Utter
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!
Dan, working with you and James Patrick Real Estate was very positive. We felt you represented us well and you bringing in a home inspector allowed us to discover a few things about the property that we would not have known without your help. I would definitely recommend you and your team if I was selling a property and will call on you again in the future if we are buying another property. Thanks for your help with the negotiation, quick closing and overall buying experience.
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.
Adam and Brittany
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 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!
Ryan & Janeice Pierce
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.
We highly recommend James Patrick Real Estate. Dan was great to work with when selling our home and buying a new one. Dan answered all our questions and communication was great. We really appreciate all Dan’s hard work, he’s a great realtor!
Daphne & William Caraballo
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 was great to work with through the entire process, He was always available for questions and knows the market well. I have sold a few properties with other companies and James Patrick Realty was by far the easiest to work with. If you want to have a great experience, including saving money, I highly recommend James Patrick Realty!
My wife and I recently worked with Dan at James Patrick Real Estate on a purchase in Fargo. Dan and James Patrick’s commitment to honesty, professionalism, fairness and transparency make them tough to beat. I’d strongly recommend them for anybody looking to make a real estate transaction. The great baseball legend Yogi Berra once said “You can observe a lot just by watching.” Dan is a true professional and it’s fun to watch.
Jeremy and Megan Davis
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!!
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.
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.
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 and Ryan were great to work with through the entire process. They were able to answer all of our questions in a timely fashion, which made the transition from a home buyer to a home seller seem like a breeze. Thanks again gentlemen.
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 is a gifted and talented Owner/Agent, he is responsive, offers advice if asked, and GENUINELY CARES. Our new home is our second purchased with Dan and James Patrick Real Estate, he will be our first call if we do it again. Thanks Dan for guiding us through this wonderful process!
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!
Darrel and Cheeri Hestdalen
We want to thank you for your positive influence on our journey through selling and buying a home. We are still unpacking. You didn’t tell us that packed boxes are like rabbits, they multiply from packing to unpacking.🤓 We received the refund check. I had a problem with online deposit- it was too big. Sooo I had to go to the bank to make the deposit. I took the opportunity to share my good good story with James Patrick. Thanks for helping make our journey a positive one, physically and financially.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Ron & Marie Weiss
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.
It was a pleasure working with the team at James Patrick Real Estate. I have worked with Dan and Nate and they are both very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I like the way they think outside the box and and the unique business model they use to sell your home and save you money.
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”
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 Perrine with James Patrick Real Estate in Fargo was an awesome real estate broker/agent for us. He helped sell our rental home in a few weeks, and gave us extremely good advice along the way. He helped us price the property right, and rightfully advised us to make the little tweeks in the house that we needed to do to make the sale more successful for us. Simply put, Dan went above and beyond from start to finish. We would surely recommend you go with Dan at JPRE if you plan to sell your home, or you’re looking to buy a property!
Jon & Amanda Rubis
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!
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!
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 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.
Charley was wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for a better agent. We were trying to sell the property ourselves, and she reached out. Hiring her as our agent was the best thing we could have done. Charley went above and beyond to ensure that the property sold. She knew the market area and was able to match the perfect buyer to our house. A truly nice and sincere person. If I ever need a real estate agent again, Charley will be the one I choose. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Nate was pure pleasure, with excellent quick honest answers to all our questions using both phone calls and text messages. A perfect blend of technology that achieved our goals to sell the house quick and settle in a short time. Every aspect of the transaction was smooth and clear. I would highly recommend Nate Metcalf to be your personal realtor.
Tiffany and Brody Lothspeich
We got the pleasure of working with Ryan Schmoll at James Patrick Real Estate. We are so incredibly grateful for his honest advice, down-to-earth attitude and diligent assistance throughout the process of selling our first home and purchasing our forever home! He never gave up on us and he made what we thought was impossible, possible! Not only did help us get the best value out of both homes, he also saved us thousands (over $8000+) in reality fees! If you’re looking to sell and/or buy a home, I would recommend the team at James Patrick a thousand times over! Their model really works to the benefit of everyone. 🙂
I would highly recommend James Patrick Real Estate to everyone. Dan made the entire process effortless for us.
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!
Corey and Brandi Richart
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.
Alli and Zach Bertschi
We can’t say enough about Dan Perrine and James Patrick Real Estate. Never in a million years did we think we would be living in our dream home at this point in our lives – and Dan made it happen. Any time we hit a bump, I knew they would take care of it. Everything was so seamless, so easy and so exciting. Thank you doesn’t seem like enough. I recommend Dan and James Patrick Real Estate to everyone, hands down.
I worked with Ryan Schmoll when selling my house. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. In a slow market Ryan did everything he could to bring attention to the property. He gave great advice throughout the process, answered any and all of my questions, and was always available. I highly recommend James Patrick Real Estate.
Enjoyed working with Dan! He was responsive and followed through in a very timely manner. He was very willing to drive all over lakes country to give us a good idea of what was available. I would recommend him!!
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.
Penny and John Chambers
Working with Dan during the finding, purchasing and closing of our first home was such a great experience! With this being our first home purchase I was a little nervous but he made the whole process a breeze! Dan was very knowledgeable, honest and was awesome with communicating with us thru the entire process! I honestly don’t think we would have been able to secure the home of our dreams without him! 5 stars all the way!
Dan + Rich were excellent to work with + met our every need. They saved us so much time + money with the sale of our home. They are unreal work horses who really delivered between coordinating the buyer’s fix list (we already moved out of town so this was a HUGE help) to being there when we closed the deal. They made it easy to build trust quickly. Many people I know have utilized their services more than once – that says a lot!
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.
Marlene and Rocky Ridl
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.
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!
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.
My husband and I worked with Ryan Schmoll to not only find our dream home but to sell our current home. Ryan was so responsive and answered all our questions. My husband and I were even more excited for our next chapter because we had peace of mind that everything was taken care of by someone we could really trust. I would highly recommend working with Ryan whether you are buying or selling!
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!
Travis and Angela Braunagel
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.
Ryan & Erin Theis
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.
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.
Our home search with James Patrick Real Estate was a great experience. My wife and I worked with Dan and Rich. Both men gave great service and worked hard to help us find our home. The company sales commission model is extremely fair. Rich and Dan had a good knowledge of the homes in the area, helping us find what we wanted. Dan helped us negotiate a fair price and stayed with us through closing. I recommend Dan and his company to all my friends. He saved us thousands of dollars in realtor commissions.
Ryan & Amanda Goodman
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.
We were in the process of selling our home FSBO. Dan and his team did an AMAZING job guiding us through the paperwork, making needed changes, and offering advice. The sale took longer than expected and James Patrick was there through the whole process. The best part, I saved a little more than $7,000 using James Patrick and was able to use the extra savings to buy a riding lawn mower at our new place! I would highly recommend using James Patrick whether FSBO or MLS!
Definitely recommend to ANYONE looking at selling their house – the fee is a flat rate and there are NO surprises – Ryan was a great realtor and we are so glad we listed with James Patrick Real Estate – you always hear … if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. That is not the case – Ryan did everything and more (took down Christmas lights before pictures 🤣🤣) that you would expect of a realtor
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!
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!
Rich was a great to work with! His constant communication is what was noticed the most and was so appreciated. We knew everything going on in regards to the selling of our house by receiving constant updates. Rich is knowledgeable and professional and provided great advice when we had questions. In addition to Rich Olson’s professionalism, we would encourage anyone to check out the commission structure as well with James Patrick Real Estate. It far outweighs the competition. If we are put in the position of buying or selling real estate in the future, we will be calling Rich Olson.
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!
