I picked Patrick based on a phone call from out of state when I was looking to move back to Florida after a 30 year absence. I could not have made a better choice. Patrick worked with my family, showing them places that either I had selected from on line views or they thought that I might like. His  patience, was awesome as was his helpfulness. If it were possible I would rate Patrick higher than five stars in every category. From search through closing he was very helpful in every way. I made my living in retail sales and I know something about good talent the sales profession, Patrick is GREAT not just good. 


Patrick went out of his way to make sure I found the perfect "Forever Home" We started the process about a year ago and he never got impatient with me or rushed me into a decision. He new the market and the area without a doubt When I was not available for any part of this process Patrick took  over. When it was time to do the paperwork Patrick went over them with a fine tooth comb. You can trust this man In other words USE PATRICK as your realtor. You will be very happy.


Pat recently assisted my wife and I in purchasing a condo while living out of state. Pat is the absolute best agent we have ever worked with on any home purchase. He was responsive, knowledgeable, hard working, and took care of every last detail. I would refer any family member or friend to Pat  for any needs in the area. Overall, Pat found a great property, negotiated a great price, and took care of everything we could have thought of, and several things we hadn’t! Super agent and a great person!


My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Patrick as both buyers and sellers of two recent properties. In both instances, Pat went above and beyond what was expected of a realtor. He was always very informative, and in the rare instances he did not have an immediate answer to any of our very  specific questions, he was able to quickly and efficiently get us the information we were seeking, usually within a few hours or sooner. Patrick helped us purchase our new home at a very fair yet aggressively negotiated price, and was able to close the deal very quickly, guiding us every step of the way. Additionally, we were nervous moving out of our old residence and carrying two mortgages, but Patrick knew the market conditions and assured us we would have no problem selling. He did not disappoint. With dozens of showings in the first week and an unbelievable marketing plan, we were under contract within two weeks of listing at a price above what my wife and I initially wanted to list the property at. We could not have pictured the transition going any more smoothly than it did. He was always available any time of the day or night when questions came up, and open to any form of communication from calling, emailing, texting, and even meeting after hours at our convenience. Even though we knew he had multiple properties and clients under his belt, it truly felt like we were his only priority. I would recommend Pat to any family and friends, and look forward to keeping in touch with him for any future real estate needs.

Our retirement journey from Wisconsin brought us to sunny, Florida! We had an area in mind, just needed some guidance and assistance to find the perfect place for us. We found that area in Isla del Sol near St Pete’s beach. Patrick, the “realtor man extraordinare”, has been with us for almost a  year, and after multiple visits/searches, we have found our perfect retirement condo. Patrick is professional, knowledgeable, personable, and extremely accommodating. It is a journey you take “together”, and Patrick is with you every step from start to finish. Patrick is always available to address your questions/concerns, and truly went above and beyond the norm. Through this process, we have gained the dream place for us, but also a Florida friend, Patrick. Give him a call, or send an email his way, and Patrick will guide you on your special journey, one step and a time! Thanks so much Patrick, our “realtor man extraordinare!” Steve and Jill Hodges (Soon to be Florida Residents!)


This is our second time that we have used Patrick, and we are even more impressed with him this time around. As usual, he went above and beyond for my husband and I to make sure everything behind the scenes went smoothly. There were many things we didn’t even realize that he did for us until after  the deal was over. Needless to say, we were very impressed with his knowledge, assertiveness, and willingness to work 24/7 to take care of business. We are in the process of looking at rental properties, and will without a doubt be using Patrick Bartlett again. If you are in need of a honest, hardworking realtor, Patrick is DEFINITELY your man:-) P.S. I am very difficult to please, so for me to endorse someone is a VERY big deal.


Pat is very patient, professional, courteous, and responsive and catered to our home buying needs! He did a lot of research on our behalf as our search was certainly a bit of a unique circumstance in that we were located in NY and wanted to house hunt in Florida – needless to say coordination was  key, and Pat was up to the challenge! He added us to the MLS listing, sending us homes to view over the internet. Pat made himself available to visit homes based on our travel schedule, and set up MANY appointments....I think we looked at about 50 houses, but it may have been even more! Based on what we saw and learned from Pat about the homes during our first ‘marathon’ of home appointments, we changed our search criteria several times. Believe me when I tell you this never deterred Pat at all!!! He is very patient and listens to be sure he has the key factors you are looking for in a home. He will not try to push you into something that doesn’t fit your needs….making his client’s happy is of utmost importance to him! Pat responds very quickly to emails, phone calls, and text messages! Once we found our forever home, Pat negotiated on our behalf, and was with us through the entire bid to close process, resulting in a closing within approximately 30 days!! He did not hesitate to make calls if things we slowing down with the parties involved, always making sure they had what they needed. Pat has a large network and recommended an excellent home inspector and assisted with getting our home owners insurance. We highly recommend Pat for your home buying or selling needs. He is extremely honest and cares about his clients!!! Thanks to Pat we found the most amazing home!!


After our first attempt at home buying fell through on our part, Pat stuck with us and kept in touch. 2 years later we tried again. Pat went above and beyond to help us find what we needed. He's honest and tells you exactly what he thinks about each and every property. He listens to what you  are looking for and doesn't try to push you into something that you don't want. His response was immediate to every inquiry we had. He's very prepared and well researched for each viewing. Anything we had questions on he already had addressed or began finding out immediately. With our limited budget in a sellers market, he exhausted every resource and when we were discouraged, provided positivity and encouragement. We were very lucky when we found Patrick and I would recommend him to ANYONE looking to buy a home. You couldn't be in better hands! Thanks Pat!

I am so excited I recently purchased my first home with the amazing help from Patrick. Patrick has been in my corner helping me find the perfect first home for about four years. He was patient, knowledgeable, and treated me like his family. Not only did he help me find my home but he educated me on  a lot things being this was my first home. Patrick was very warming and I knew I could trust him from the first day I met him. He was consistent through out the entire process. He has a great spirit and truly cares about his clients. His actions shows how much he genuinely cares. If you are in search of a home and you want someone who will completely be honest with you and treat you like family Patrick is your Realtor. You will thank me later. lol He is truly amazing. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Patrick!


I cannot thank Patrick enough for all his help selling our home in FL. This was the first house we've ever sold (to say we were rookies at this would be an understatement). He was kind, professional, set reasonable expectations and priced the house accordingly. He was there for us each step of the  way and made this process as smooth as it could have been. If you are looking for someone to take the burden/stress off of this process, reach out to him!!! He was terrific and went above and beyond for my family!


Pat is an all start realtor. Pat helped us find the perfect home at a great price and negotiated on our behalf to get us an awesome deal. Furthermore, Pat helped us with just about every service possible that we needed as we moved from another state. I can’t speak highly enough about Pat’s  professionalism, his knowledge, his helpfulness in assisting us move 1,200 Miles to a new city and state. I would highly recommend Pat to anyone looking to buy, or sell, a home in the area. We’re thrilled with the level of service we received, way above and beyond what we expected. Thanks Pat.

My fiancée and I were looking to purchase our first home and had heard great things about Patrick from friends that had worked with him previously. Shortly after emailing Patrick, we set up a 30min phone conversation to go over our "wants" in a house. He was very professional but also laid back  with the way he spoke to us. Since my fiancée and I are in our early 20s, it was comforting that Patrick spoke to and treated us like adults rather than assuming we were just young kids browsing houses. We told Patrick about what we did and did not want in a house and he even asked us questions that we hadn't even thought of (like finding a house that was not in a flood zone). He then sent us over an online client portal with all of our desired features and a narrowed down list of houses and such that fit the criteria. My fiancée and I looked through the houses that matched our needs and picked our favorites. Exactly 1 week later Patrick, my fiancée and I looked at a total of 10 different houses. He made us aware of what to look for in terms of positives and negatives and thinking long term. Patrick didn't just open the front door and say, "have a look around." No, he walked us through each room while giving us information about the surrounding communities, current owner, any issues reported, and so much more. It really made us feel comfortable knowing that he was as invested as we were. Once we had decided on the perfect house, Patrick immediately went to work on his side all the way until we officially closed. We could tell that Patrick was a very hands-on realtor and treated each of his clients as if they were his own kids. Patrick was in constant communication with us, the mortgage company, and anyone else that needed to be contacted during the whole process. Another driving force behind the process was Patrick's mortgage company referral which gave us the same treatment and care as Patrick himself. Currently, my fiancée and I are transitioning from apartment living to being homeowners and are even more excited than we were during our first phone call with Patrick. Whether you are looking to buy your first house or your 10th house, Patrick Bartlett will do everything in his power to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible. He is one of those types of people that I love working with, a professional.

Pat was an awesome realtor. Our intital phone call he got to know us, what areas we liked, what we were looking for in a home, etc. It was very reassuring to have a realtor who listened to us but also gave his opinion since we didn’t know all the areas. We lived in CA about a month before we moved  to FL and Pat stayed in touch and sent me houses that were on the market that met our criteria. When we finally moved to FL we looked at houses together and he was very knowledgeable about the area and what things to look for. It was a breathe of fresh air to not feel like we were trying to be sold but that he truly wanted to find us our dream home. Pat was very patient and trustworthy. He was always available to talk, his response time was on point, super organized and dependable. He ended up finding us our dream home in less than a week and he made the process so smooth and stress free. I would highly recommend Pat for anyone looking to sell or buy a home. He has an awesome team of people which made the entire process so amazing. Now we can call Pat our friend and not just our realtor!

This is the 2nd house I have purchased. Nothing bad to say about the 1st purchase with a different realtor.   What a difference I experienced with Pat though.   Pat is the BEST realtor I have ever met.  He made the entire process easy, and had my best interests in mind.  He is honest and doesn't  stop working.  He was available every time I called, or got back to me immediately.  His knowledge about the industry is impressive, and is only exceeded by the effort he puts in to make sure you get a great deal on the right home.  We had many hurdles to overcome in my specific scenario.  Pat took on the challenge at every turn.  He always had a plan, and it worked out as he said it would.   I attribute this to his knowledge, his work ethic, and his desire to serve you.  Just to give some perspective... I don't recommend people for services unless they are truly outstanding.  This is only the 2nd review I have written for anyone, ever.  I know at least 10 friends who are realtors and none of them could compete with Pat's service he provided.  This is his job, his life, and seeing you happy with your purchase is what drives him to do what he does. Best of Luck Pat!!  Thanks for finding us our long term home.  We love our new home!!

Couldn't have been happier!! Sold the house in 1 day for 18k more than asking price... Would refer him to anybody. Knows the area and gets it done fast. Respectful and patient...

We started working with Pat from California six months before our move to Florida. He established daily-updated MLS searches based on our needs/wants and we stayed in communication via email and phone. We were able to make two visits to FL and both times he was at the ready with appointments lined  up and property listings in hand. We changed focus from the first visit to the second, going from beach living condo-style to residential marina life-style, and he never missed a beat. We found our dream home on the second visit and closed in 30 days!

The key to our cross-county house hunting success was Pat’s unrelenting determination and teamwork. He is honest, hardworking, always available for his clients, and he steps in whenever needed (he did our final inspection as we were still in California). He is also kind and truly wants his clients to be happy.I can’t praise Patrick enough, he really is THE BEST! Pat gave 100% of his time, answering calls, texts and emails immediately and following up on our questions/issues within the day.  During viewings, he was often the first to point out issues in the condition of the roofs, windows, seawalls, issues with floor pitch, cracks in walls, foundation.. even on the sidewalk (noting that there’s an app for the city to come out and repair…).  He never sold the house but rather ‘showed’ the house with his recommendations and comments.  His honesty, attention to detail, hard work and dedication is second to none. When we found ‘the one’, he’d already done his homework, ensuring our offer was accurate and appropriate. A true gentleman and professional! He’s the nicest guy out there, but don’t let him fool you, he’s a bulldog when he needs to be.

Thank you Pat, we look forward to celebrating with you once we complete our cross-country journey!!!

If we could of rated 6 stars we would of! Pat was excellent and amazing. We were privileged to have an opportunity to work with such a great realtor and person. He is super knowledgeable, efficient, and an expert in his field. We never had any worries working with Pat he took care of everything and  guided us with his expertise. He was always there for us at anytime and he made the process for us smooth & effective. We will definitely be referring Pat to friends and family and we know without doubt that he's our realtor for any future endeavors.


I couldn't have had a better experience. Patrick is knowledgeable, dependable, patient, and a wonderful person. I was searching for a home for 6 months and he was there every step of the way. Two days before my closing, something came up with my house and Patrick was there at 7am to resolve the  issue. If you don't have Patrick as your realtor, you wish you did.

Pat helped us find our first home and guided us through it all. We got married in the middle of looking and Pat was always there if we needed him. He was incredibly patient and gave great advice since we were first-time homebuyers. He was not going to give up until we found something and we did! We  truly appreciate everything he did for us and will certainly use him in the future. Thank you for everything Pat!

Patrick was instrumental in finding our forever home.  Patrick was recommended to by a relative as someone we could trust to help us when we arrived from Connecticut.  That certainly was true.  He helped us all through our move from Connecticut to Apollo Beach, even answering questions while he  was at the beach with his family.

Pat was a great person to work with. I feel we actually became friends during the entire process. He truly made me feel he was looking out for my best interest, Pat always returned phone calls, he gave me honest opinions, I never felt pressured, and being new to the area, it was nice knowing  someone who had in depth knowledge of Hilsbourgh and Pinellas county's. He gladly showed me all properties I requested, and accommodated my schedule. I now consider him "my realtor" and would highly recommend Pat to family and friends or anyone who is in the market


Patrick is truly top tier of real estate professionals. He was referred to us by our daughter, who also had a five star experience with him. His comprehensive local knowledge of the beach communities was vital to the success of our search. He was tireless in his efforts to find us the right home  and was with us every step of the way during the process. He was very responsive to our questions via email or phone and got back with us quickly no matter what time of day or day of week. I recommend Patrick to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. He is the consummate professional. He found us our dream home, I know he can find you yours!

Alan and Gail

I highly recommend Pat Bartlett as a realtor. He started working for us while we still lived 1600 miles away, even though we had not sold our current house yet. Pat had our backs at every step of the process. He was always professional. He was always a text or phone call away, day or evening,  weekday or weekend. Every time we wanted to see a house, he would make it happen that same day or the next day. He was the main reason we got the home of our dreams, even though there was a higher offer on the house. If you are buying or selling, you want Pat Bartlett as your Realtor!

Gail and Rick

I cannot say enough great things about Pat and his work! I'm a first time home buyer and he guided me every step of the way without any pressure. There were many houses we looked at that I loved but Pat's keen eyes spotted all the cover ups these houses contained and explained the costs associated  with them. This was greatly appreciated as any other realtor who is just in this to make a sale could have sold me on a money pit house. Pat really cares about his clients and his actions show it. Once we found the perfect house for me, he attended my inspection (since I couldn't due to work) and made sure the process went smoothly. He was able to negotiate a credit after the inspection and even had the seller include a home warranty! Pat has continued to be there for me after closing. I closed last week and had a question about my home warranty--Pat to the rescue. He responded to my question within a minute.  If you're in the market to buy a house and are looking for an trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable, and caring realtor, Pat is your guy!


We began our search for a beachfront condo in the Clearwater/St Pete beach area over a year ago. Pat has been patient and responsive through it all. No matter when we were in town, weekends or evenings, he always accommodated our schedules and got us in to see properties. We must've seems over 50  properties in that time. He never lost patience and it was clear he wanted to make sure we found the property that was right for us. He was thorough every step of the way - anticipating and asking all the right questions of the seller and seller's agent. He has resources to handle every step of the process: financing, inspections and repair recommendations. On top of that, he's an incredibly nice person with a great sense of humor. This process was a lot of work. An element of humor is always a welcome addition. I would highly recommend Pat! Thanks, Pat!!!

I bought a home a few days ago. Patrick was awesome! He looked out for me and even went to my home inspection for me. He made the process easy. I highly recommend Patrick.

Pat was the right fit for our home search. We worked with 3 other agents in the area and Pat was by far the only one willing to put in the work to make the deal happen. We bought a beautiful home that we wouldn't have even considered looking at with the other agents. Pat went out of his way to  help us get the home of our dreams!

Patrick Bartlett is an extremely hardworking realtor that will do whatever it takes to find a home for you. He works all hours of the day and night performing the necessary measures it takes for you to find your dream place. He is very honest and will tell you his thoughts if something doesn't look  right to him. This is a rare trait that most realtors do not have because most are just wanting a paycheck as soon as possible. We staring working with Patrick in November and just closed on our house a few days ago. He is very patient and respectful and completely understands how long it sometimes takes to find a home. There were a few times we were out driving around looking at places and found something we wanted to see right then and there, we called Patrick and he met us there within a half hour! There are not many realtors that drop everything to meet you almost immediately! As my husband and I say, realtors in Florida are a dime a dozen and you will be overwhelmed with the thousands that say that you will be there number one client, but please beware!! Most of them are just there to cash a paycheck and not have your best interest in heart. Patrick is one of a kind, so please understand I am very hard to please, and if I'm writing this review, it must mean that you should give Patrick a try. There is no doubt you will soon be in your dream home. 

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $225K in Old Pasadena, St Petersburg, FL.


Patrick is the best of the best, and I say that sincerely. We are first time homebuyers and would not have survived the process without him in our corner, fighting the good fight. Have a quick question on a Saturday night at 8pm? He'll have gotten back to you before you even have a chance to  re-check your email. His knowledge of the area is vast and he thoroughly researched dozens of properties we were interested in, uncovering potential problems we would have been otherwise unaware of. If he doesn't know the answer to something, he immediately finds and contacts somebody who does. You will feel like you are his most important and respected client, every time and all the time. We valued him enough to recommend his services to my parents, who were able to find the home of their dreams after only one day with him. You can't do better and you won't be sorry! 

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2015 for approximately $75K in Redington Beach, FL.


He was very helpful and patient with us. We were here for a weekend and he showed us all the houses we wanted to see. We are from out of town and he attended all the inspections for us. He definitely went the extra mile.

Patrick found me the perfect house and played an instrumental role in ensuring I successfully acquired it. He helped me navigate a challenging mortgage loan process. I could not have succeeded without his help.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Saint Petersburg, FL.


Pat is professional, personable, honest and truly on your side. Be assured he will always have your best interest in mind. He will fight for you and protect you. He takes the initiative to be upfront and negotiate with always what you need on mind. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my  purchase. You won't be sorry to work with him. He will find you what you want and be honest with you.

Bought a home in 2015 in Victor, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689.


Patrick helped myself and my fiance out with our first home purchase. There were a couple of "fixer-uppers" I was interested in but after Patrick did some digging, we agreed that they would have been poor investments. Patrick did all of this after only talking to him on the phone a couple of  times before we were even locked in to a realtor. Because of his initiative in doing this research, we felt like he had our best interests in mind and wasn't out there to make a quick buck and sell us the first thing we saw. After sending him several properties that I found online that we were interested in, we put in an offer on a house and ended up getting it. Through the whole process he was there to answer questions and email on off hours and reassured us that he had our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a thoughtful realtor.
