Their love for their community, in-depth real estate knowledge and ability to understand and interact with all ages immediately made them invaluable partners with Pat.

Below are a few testimonials from satisfied clients:
“My husband and myself have bought and sold 27 houses in our married life so we have used our share of realtors. Although we have many friends in the Landings who sell real estate a friend of mine here who has many real estate holdings said that Pat Ewaldsen works harder than anyone she had ever seen. She was correct. From the moment we met Pat we realized she was extraordinary. In a depressed market she worked to get close to our asking price. She was creative in her ideas on how we should prepare our home for sale as well as creative on how we could work out the closing of a rather tricky move. We truly had never seen a more professional realtor in our life. As much as we hope we never have to move again if it so happens we will be back with Pat!”
Sincerely, Carol and Rick Barrett
“My wife and I have spent a lifetime in Real Estate and looked for the best to list and sell our home. That is why we chose Pat Ewaldsen. She was professional in every way and did a great job making sure our home was shown and got sold in a timely manner.”
Barbara and Jeff Marquis
“Pat has been fantastic and continues to be the best, by far, professional we have ever worked with in real estate. We wouldn’t be here without her. She continues to be much more than a real estate agent, we call her a “great friend.”

“Now that all of the dust has settled Molly & I want to thank you for the fabulous job you did for us. I have been involved in over 100 real estate transactions as a buyer or seller and your efforts easily stand at the top of the list. Your approach made us feel as if we had 24/7 coverage or access to you. I can’t tell you how many times in other transactions I would leave a message and wait for a response. I don’t know how you share all of that information back and forth but it was very impressive. We also appreciate your ability to handle some dicey negotiations on both the buy and sell side. This resulted in fair transactions’ where all parties could walk away a winner. Molly and I would both be happy to act as a referral or even talk with any of your clients to go into more detail if that opportunity ever occurs. Thanks again for making these transactions’ easy for us every step of the way. ”
Rick & Molly Wright
“We were thrilled with the service we received from Pat. She convinced us to purchase here within 6 hours of driving through the gate for the first time. She zeroed in on what we wanted to look at and within 3 hours we decided on a purchase. After negotiating a great contract for us she followed up with all the necessary procedures which led a smooth closing. We were only here two days and we felt like we had known her for a lifetime. Her efficiency paired with her enthusiasm would be hard to match. ”

“Listing and selling our home with Pat Ewaldsen was a terrific experience. She is professional, works hard to market and sell homes, and keeps her clients informed. In just 3 weeks we had more showings of our home than in the previous 6 months with another agent.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to commend the fantastic work of Pat Ewaldsen and her tireless commitment to our search for our second home. She listened to what our parameters were and provided us with a large pool of homes to investigate. She supported us each step of the way as we went from search to find and smoothly took us through every phase from inspection, to obtaining financing to securing insurance to feeling at home at The Landings. Being from the Northeast it was invaluable working Pat who provided a wealth of knowledge about the area to us both. ”
Bill and Ann Marie Darsney Hanover, NH
“No where have we been welcomed with such genuine friendliness, offered so much help and in general made to feel at home as we are at The Landings. I attribute the majority of this to Pat Ewaldsen, who was our realtor at the beginning of our quest. We are now settled in a home we love and a community that cannot be surpassed.”

“Southern Hospitality at it’s best is the way to describe our affiliation with Pat Ewaldsen. She gave us a great overview of the island in a few hours and we were so impressed that we came back the next visit and bought a home we are very excited about. She took care of every detail with expert care, making the purchase of our home a great experience.”
Ken & Lynn McLauchlan (Annapolis, Maryland)

“We have done three Real Estate transactions with Pat – two purchases and one listing and sale! We felt we got the best care possible!”

“We are so grateful to Pat. Not only did she help us find the right home, she made the process easy, seamless and effortless. She was a joy to work with. Before we arrived at The Landings we were afraid it would not work for us as it was not directly on the beach, and we like to walk to the beach. Pat replied, “Give me 24 hours and you will forget about that. With marinas on both ends of the island and water all around, plus so much to do and so many wonderful people to do it with; you will find the best of both worlds. And within 48 hours we had purchased a great home; and know this is where we want to spend the rest of our lives.”
Mary Beth Russell & Bob Slocum (New York, New York)
“Yesterday, I had a meeting with a member of The Landings Welcome Service and felt, once again, impressed with both this island and your agent Pat Ewaldsen. I felt compelled to send you this email.
I met Pat at our closing, as she was the listing agent for our wonderful home on Joshua’s Retreat. She came to the closing loaded with information about the house and The Landings. After the closing, she made sure we had everything we needed to get through the gate, to set us up with our PIN, and take us to see our new home. We were all stricken with her warmth and willingness to do whatever was needed to help us feel welcome.
Later that evening, Pat took us to dinner. Our beautiful meal was capped off with a surprise dessert (arranged by Pat) and served to my husband. It was obvious, she had paid attention to every detail of our conversation. We were amazed.
About a week ago, I ran into Pat on the island. I told her how I had fallen in love with this place and never wanted to leave. She then arranged for the Welcome Service to bring me their wonderful and thoughtful packet of information. Once again, I was stricken with Pat’s generosity of spirit and attention to detail.
I think The Landings is so lucky to have Pat Ewaldsen. I just wanted you to know of my experiences and my appreciation for the best agent on the island (and probably in the world).”
