I have had 2 great real estate transactions with Pat. The first transaction went very smoothly and because of that, I asked Pat to help me purchase a new home. My list of "must have's" was pretty long and, my timeline was short. But, Pat found me the perfect home and, I love it! In addition, there were some complicated conditions, and Pat really showed me that she had my best interests in mind. She coached me through some of the bureaucracy, which is enormous and, made suggestions and, even followed up on things when I had problems. She even negotiated non-conditional requests and got the previous owner to agree to do them! Pat referred me to home inspection, mortgage, legal and other professionals, all of whom did great work for me. Pat even offered to help with my move! Even after the transaction, Pat made sure she came to see how I was doing in my new home and, gave me a very special housewarming gift! Pat is a professional but, more than that, she has a personal interest in me, and my needs and, that is what really makes her special. Pat is my realtor for life! Joanne D. - Joanne Duquette

Pat Durant is no ordinary real estate agent. In a nutshell she is wonderful, exquisite, brilliant. She guided me through every step of the process of selling a house, from advising on renovations, to recommending contractors, i.e., carpenters, electricians, painters and a home stager. I had lived in my home for 15 years and had not made many changes, except new windows and doors. The house was stuck in the 60s, but it had good bones. Hardwood floors throughout and plaster walls and molding. Pat advised me to update the kitchen and the bathroom and I accepted her advice and to paint the house throughout with the same colour. I put the update totally in her hands. I made up my mind that it was no longer my house and I had to surrender it into the hands of the expert. The house looked phenomenal when the work was finished; it was so beautiful that I opted to put off the sale for an extra year, just so I could enjoy it. When it comes to selling properties, Pat is a project manager, a counsellor, a handywoman, a gardener, a cleaning lady and an artist. She was hands-on when I became overwhelmed by the task: she washed walls, did laundry, packed the last of my stuff, and was there when the movers came. I had already left for the East coast. She has the kind of integrity that is rare these days. She took as good care of the buyers as she did of me, without crossing any lines. I think that impressed me the most. They were young and a little sceptical of her motives in the beginning, but it did not take them long to realize that she was there for them. Oh, and did I mention, she SOLD MY HOUSE IN ONE DAY!!! The profit for me on the sale of the house was over $200,000! Nanette Cormier - Nanette Comier

We feel very fortunate to have found Pat Durant to help us in our new home search. She really did go out of her way to help us find just the right home, in the right price range, and was able to give us suggestions and link us to other service providers that allowed us to be set up in our new home in our time frame. She is one in a million! We have recommended Pat to others. - Gary Tattrie

I have tried other Real Estate Agents, but none have given me the service that Pat has. She listens to what I need and want, and carries out the entire process with utmost patience, thoroughness, and detail. Pat really does go above and beyond the call of duty. I would recommend her to anyone! - Vicki Patton

“My wife and I hired Pat to sell our house in the summer of 2011 and to help us find a new one. Our home sold in five days (fastest ever on our street) and for the highest amount. In addition to being very knowledgeable and efficient in real estate transactions, Pat is also an excellent stager. Each time our home was shown it was immaculate. She was very helpful in our acquiring our new home. Pat is very reliable, courteous, personal and knowledgeable as a real estate agent. We highly recommend her.” - Jim and Sue Taggart

“Pat went the extra mile in assisting me with my move from BC to NS in 2009. Our contact began through email prior to my move and when I arrived in NS, she was well prepared with a list of properties to show me and time set aside so that I never felt rushed. I found her to be very thorough and always ready to help. I had the feeling that she was interested in helping me find a home that I would love and I really appreciated the time she took to assist me. Oh and I love my housewarming gift from her!!” - Carolyn Scott

“Pat Durant brings to the table a unique combination of intuitive insights and practical skills that transform the traumatic "moving" experience and provide her clients with the tools they need to embrace the challenge and enjoy the journey that will take them from where they were to where they want to be. Pat is so much more than a Realtor. And you deserve so much more than the ordinary Realtor can offer. We are still looking for that perfect home!" - Abby Hagyard

As soon as Pat came to my house for the initial consultation in preparation to sell, it was clear that her level of professionalism and experience were exactly what I was looking for. She looked after every detail, and went above and beyond in helping to get my house prepped for the sale, from advising on paint to the smallest details of the home staging - and was quite creative through the process! My house sold in one day, well above asking price! If I hadn't had Pat's guidance and expertise I don't think I would have had the same outcome. I recommend her to everyone! - Bruce Martin

"There are very few agents in the real estate industry that would genuinely go out of their way to intently listen, understand, and find what the client is looking for, and to ensure that the client needs are met rather than being another name on broadcasting list of properties. Pat is definitely one of those few agents. Whether it is her calm, welcoming personality, or her eagerness to excel in this industry as a Service Provider rather than an agent, it surely distinguishes her and makes dealing with her a real pleasure and a privilege. - Ahmed Ali, PhD, Real Estate Investor and Mentor

"As first-time buyers, the real estate market was a near-complete unknown to myself and to my young family. We knew very little about the house-buying process and by full admission we found it overwhelming and intimidating. With my own family of predominantly working-class background and my wife being a New Canadian, we had very little means of obtaining personable advice from someone whom we could trust. . .we were wary of possibly being preyed upon by an unscrupulous professional who only cared about the bottom line. To our great fortune, we soon encountered Pat Durant . . she went to considerable lengths to educate us on all matters concerning our first-time purchase---including evenings and weekends---and answered all of our questions and concerns. She showed commendable patience and resolve, yet did not aggressively push us into purchasing any homes that did not address our needs or were simply not to our liking. She was mindful of our tight budget and tried hard to negotiate a better price in our favour when we coveted a house that was just right for us but was just out of our financial reach. After much work and perseverance from Ms. Durant’s end, we found our first home at long last. . .and we’ll be moving in just two short months from now! We can’t thank her enough for her hard work and dedication to her clients. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking to buy a home in Ottawa , and especially so for first-time buyers." - Eric Samson

"The service and personal attention we received from Pat Durant and her colleagues at Royal LePage Performance Realty was exceptional and very much appreciated. Pat is truly the consummate professional, and her calm demeanour, patience and perseverance was amazing, first in helping us find our dream home and guiding us from negotiation to closing. After patiently discussing our needs and working within our contraints, Pat helped put together an offer that got us the best value purchase for our new home. We were so pleased with all of Pat's hard work that we then tasked Pat to help us sublet the home we had been renting as we were having no luck on our own. Her hard work, dedication, and knowledge of the local real estate market and her personal outreach to key contacts among other Realtors(R) in the community helped us find a suitable tenant. Regardless of whether or not you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Pat Durant to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through this process." - Ian and Serena Hardy

My husband wanted to sell an Ottawa rental property and needed a real estate agent. Pat was quite new to the real estate business, and to Ottawa too, but I knew and liked Pat and we both liked her approach....she came across as a cheerful, helpful problem-solver. And that's exactly what she turned out to be. She focused the listing. She figured out how to work with the nervous tenants. And she did it very effectively. The product was THREE good offers, all with 24 hours of the posting, including one for the full asking price without conditions with a closing date just a month away. Why did it go so well? Luck, a decent building and a good location were surely factors, but it was Pat that made it all come together. We credit her listening talent (her counselling background makes her a super communicator), her organizational skills, her intelligence, and her commitment to doing the very best work. We give her 100%! - Barbara Preston

Overall, extremely disappointed with our experience with Pat. She did not bother to take the time to understand our needs properly. She was very unprofessional overall. We will not be using her again. - Ellah

Pat refuses to do little more than post your listing on MLS. I found her to be argumentative and unprofessional when she isn't getting her own way.
Reply:    Because you didn’t leave your name, I cannot know who you are, but I think any of my clients who Listed their homes with me will tell you that I am very dedicated to presenting their homes In best possible light, and go over and above in terms of marketing, calling other Realtors who I know have people looking for that type of home, Posting on at least 8 different websites, including my own, and 7 others that ReMax Hallmark automatically posts on, Publis Open Houses, Realtor Open House, and the list goes on. As a former Psychotherapist, I believe that my communication skills are most professional. I would love to have a phone call from you so that we can discuss what is bothering you.

Pat is a poor listener. Makes a lot of promises and does not deliver. Very unprofessional. Refuses to speak to you when things does not go her way. Would never use her again.
