Jack and Mara LaVoice

Patrick,

Mara and I are very happy with our new purchase of 808 Park Place. We so appreciate your professionalism, guidance, and most of all patience as we worked though the complexity of selling our former OC condo to make this move. It took some time to finally arrive at the perfect home to meet our needs, and you never rushed us through this process.

This is our 2nd positive experience having you as our trusted Real Estate Professional. Your responsiveness to our many questions ranging from general market pricing to condo association insurance requirements assured a smooth transition to closing on our new home.

We wholeheartedly will endorse and recommend your services to friends and others interested in purchasing a home in Ocean City!

Best,
Jack and Mara LaVoice

From the first time we met Patrick Halliday up until settlement time, we have felt confident that he is doing everything he can to sell our house. Patrick is extremely professional and courteous. He is always prompt in answering his emails and messages at all times.

He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate transactions. He is always quick to offer his help and suggestions. He gave us reference for a painter, a handy man and arranged for all the work to be done on time with excellent results.

We did not have to worry about anything. The whole process was seamless thanks to his knowledge, help and dedication.
I would not hesitate to recommend Patrick to anyone and I will certainly use his help in the future.

My wife and I had decided after vacationing in Ocean City, NJ for over 30 years it was time to buy a property in Ocean City America's Best Family Resort Town.

We first met Patrick as he had a listing we saw online but after listening carefully to our needs and preferences he found us a different and terrific home on the ocean that fit our preferences perfectly. While ocean front property is never cheap, Patrick found us a great property that fit our budget and the needs of our family. My wife and I have different tastes in architecture but when we first walked through the door of our home, we both agreed that we had found our new shore home.

Patrick's service after the contract negotiation was terrific drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of top Ocean City appraisers, builders, loan brokers, surveyors, contractors, Township Officials, etc. We came to learn that Patrick grew up in Ocean City and his dad is still a general contractor there so he has tremendous insights on neighborhoods which helped make our purchase stress free.
We closed in January and are loving the new house. For this particular purchase, Patrick represented both us (the buyers) and the sellers. At the close the sellers were very satisfied with all his efforts, so if you are looking to sell a property, I know the sellers of our house were quite pleased.

If you're looking for a broker in the Ocean City area, do yourself a favor and work with Patrick.

When we listed our home (with another agency) in Ocean City we had every expectation that it would sell -- and sell quickly. As the days turned to weeks and the weeks turned to months, however, it became clear we had underestimated what it would take to find our buyer. Upon meeting Patrick everything changed. He was honest about the challenges posed by our home yet confident he would find success where others had not.

Our instincts were correct. Within one week of listing our home Patrick secured multiple offers. We settled without incident shortly thereafter. Buoyed by our experience as sellers, we also used Patrick in the search for our next home. He was patient and accommodating, willing to show us a property new to the market at a moment's notice yet never making us feel as though we were an imposition or that our wish list was somehow unreasonable. During both transactions Patrick negotiated on our behalf with steadfast determination, and if problems arose he worked tirelessly to find a solution. Having purchased and sold multiple homes in multiple states over the last decade we can say without hesitation that his professionalism, loyalty and commitment to his clients are unparalleled in today’s real estate market.

As a buyer or seller, you simply cannot go wrong with Patrick on your side. We remain eternally grateful to him -- and to the entire Patrick Halliday team -- for all their hard work in making our family’s dream come true.

When deciding to sell our investment property, we knew the person to call was Patrick Halliday. A true professional, he works tirelessly to help all of his clients. He sold the property and for us Patrick made the whole process effortless. We are grateful for all of Patrick’s amazing help and dedication.

Now through Patrick Halliday’s incredible work ethic, we purchased a property in the exact location we always wanted. Patrick works “above and beyond” to make the impossible, possible. His knowledge and experience is second to none in construction, permits, CAFRA, etc. He is always only a phone call away to answer any question.

We admire him so much we refer Patrick as a friend and “Super Realtor”. We cannot say enough great things about Patrick and all he has done to make our dream come true.

Thank you Patrick Halliday!

Mark and Kathy Reimet

Knowing that we had an interest in a corner lot Patrick suggested that we drive by 13 Sunnyside Court as the price had just been reduced. The next day we were in front of architect Chris Halliday from Patrick's team to gain ideas on what could be built. On day 3 we met with builder Scott Halliday to determine what it would cost to build. On day four we were under contract and moving forward with the plans!

Patrick orchestrated the process and allowed us to quickly gain the information we needed to secure a great opportunity. He is sharp and professional. He will work hard for you and see it through to the end. He's a great guy with a great family!

Craig and Lynn Keyser

Patrick Halliday is the consummate professional. Throughout the sale and purchase of our homes, he was diligent and demonstrated communication and tremendous attention to detail. Most importantly however, he always focused on the distinct needs of the client and genuinely cared about our desires.

Diane and Greg Griffith

A few years ago I met Ione Talese (Artisan Soap Shop, Asbury Avenue). She gave me Patrick Halliday's business card. When I told her my family's story, she said that Patrick would be THE realtor to help us buy a home in Ocean City. Ione was correct.

My husband and I grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs, always spending a summer vacation here in Ocean City. For 36 years, our parents, then we, rented from a lovely family. Knowing that this could not continue indefinitely, we decided to contact Patrick. Patrick even came by the house we rented, since we'd told him that we had been spoiled by this home's features and location. Patrick needed to know our particular requirements!

Last St Patrick's Day, Patrick helped our childhood dreams to come true. Since "closing the deal," Patrick has been interested in us and in our house, way beyond the call of duty. Did a delivery mistakenly show up after we'd headed back to MD? Patrick helped us. Painting, a/c, plumber, electrician? Patrick got us in touch with the right people who came quickly and did excellent work. Having been renters for all of our lives, we didn't have the names of people who do good work in town and who can be trusted. In facilitating our transition to Ocean City homeowners, Patrick has always answered our emergency calls with resources and reassurance. As a realtor, Patrick was attentive to our personal needs (specific, please don't be pushy). As to his follow through, Patrick has become a friend and trusted support.

Were I to imitate Ione Talese, I would give you Patrick's card and say, PLEASE CALL, You will not be disappointed!!

Nancy & Charles Cristella

Ten years ago we purchased our investment condo with Patrick. Now we have sold that condo with Patrick. Working with Patrick has been nothing less than a pleasurable experience. He has made the process an easy one due to his knowledge and expertise of the buying and selling process as it relates to Ocean City. The Sale was somewhat difficult due to the current market conditions, however, Patrick was able to facilitate the sale to our satisfaction. We would definitely recommend Patrick as the person to "Make it Happen".

This is our third house in Ocean City that we have purchased with Patrick. Buying/selling a house couldn't be easier with him. He is extremely knowledgeable in the various codes and regulations and can easily answer any question. He is familiar with various development opportunities that are happening and is able to give you all options to consider before making the decision to buy. He answers every email and phone call immediately. He is with you every step of the way on the transaction from the initial looking at houses all the way through to the end of settlement and even once you move in he is available. He is extremely accommodating and does everything in his power to make the transaction simple and easy. I truly could not imagine working with any other realtor!.

Ken and Maryann Davis

Working with Patrick on the purchase of our first property in Ocean City has been a great pleasure. He is the consummate person to have as your realtor. He is tireless, accessible, knows the real estate market well, has a vast knowledge of construction, the construction process and has considerable experience with the design aspects of homes including furniture placement, color coordination and the particular requirements of shore properties to accommodate the climate. He is also a valuable resource for related services in the area to assist buyers in the purchase process and for providers of services after the purchase. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to buy property in the area.

Tom & Ruth DiStefano

We met Patrick fortuitously when he brought one of his clients to view our Egg Harbor Township home which was then 'For Sale By Owner'. His professional demeanor so impressed us that we decided to retain him to list our property. While the selling process proved more difficult than either we or he anticipated, primarily due to local market conditions at the time, Patrick understood our situation and with extraordinary effort was able to facilitate a timely sale that met our requirements. We are more than happy to recommend Patrick as the consummate professional who willingly goes the extra mile(s) to meet the needs of his clients.

Bill and Mary Foster

We were so impressed by the personal attention we received from the initial contact to the final closing (settlement) on the house. We were looking for a summer home and had very little time due to our busy NY work lives. Patrick met us on a Sunday even though he was entertaining his own family and showed us the properties we were considering. He did not give the "hard sell", instead he encouraged us to think about the home and get back to him at our convenience. We made an offer the second week of September and were homeowners by October 20th! We selected colors via cell phone pictures and conversations and met just one more time to finalize selections. Patrick was attentive. respectful and a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him and his company to others. Thank you!

Ed and SueAnn Jeral

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Patrick Halliday to any individual or family searching for the ideal home!

The purchase of our home was a bit complicated since it was a short sale. Patrick did not let that deter him for one moment from moving forward. He contacted and met with individuals above and beyond his call of duty. Whether or not particular situations were resolved, Patrick contacted us almost immediately to share the outcome. Patrick never waivered as frustrating situations presented themselves. He was endlessly encouraging. He knew our hearts were in this particular house, and he did what he could to make this house happen for us! We quickly discovered one remarkable attribute of Patrick: he does not let grass of any type grow under his feet!

We found working with Patrick an absolute joy! Patrick is a man of integrity. His work ethic is second to none. His business sense is extraordinary. His motivation is encouraging. His disposition is never anything but cheerful. We are forever grateful to Patrick for finding a "house" that is now our home! Hands down, Patrick Halliday is the best in the business! Don't hesitate to contact him. He will get right back to you!

Peter and Gemma Downham

Patrick Halliday was the difference between listing our home for sale and actually selling our home. He guided us through the process with his expert knowledge and experience and inspired our utmost confidence. Patrick goes above and beyond for his clients to assist them with both selling and purchasing properties. Patrick is responsive, professional, and above all PATIENT. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

We can't say enough great things about our home buying experiences with Patrick Halliday. Patrick is professional, dedicated, conscientious and the most responsive individual we have ever worked with. He took the time to understand what we were looking for and worked tirelessly to find a house that fit the needs of our family. His attention to detail is second to none and he made himself available whenever we had a question.

Patrick helped us to purchase a condo on the south end of Ocean City in May 2013. We enjoyed our home and the town of Ocean City so much we decided to make it our primary residence. Patrick was a big part of making us feel at home in Ocean City. He helped us to find a single family home in the Riviera section of town and we became full time residence of Ocean City in July 2014. Patrick was extremely patient and helped us to consider all of our options. He always put our needs first and never pressured us to make a decision we were not comfortable with. He truly made us feel like we were his only client during the time when we were selling two houses and under contract to buy our new primary residence. We can't imagine another realtor that understands the real estate market in Ocean City and the needs of his clients better than Patrick.

We can't thank Patrick enough for everything he has done for our family.

As third time home buyers, Patrick was the most knowledgeable, responsive, and involved agent we have ever worked with. We first contacted Patrick about one of his beautiful developments, but after Patrick spent a Saturday showing our family (including a three year old and eight month old) everything Ocean City has to offer, he helped us narrow down to just a few fantastic new construction properties. By the following weekend we were conducting inspection, and Patrick surprised us by accompanying us on a furniture shopping trip (again with two small children). Without his involvement, ideas, and expert assistance we would not have been able to walk out of that store with a fully furnished unit. As we approached the closing date and state paperwork caused some delays, Patrick kept pushing and kept us informed of all the next steps to make sure we enjoyed the summer in our new beach condo.

Patrick goes the extra mile and take personal responsibility for everything in his control. When something isn't in his control, he leverages his deep relationships in and around town to influence others and make things happen. Patrick is professional, explains concepts in easy to understand language, and is an overall great person. We will surely work with Patrick again in the future, and highly recommend him to anyone who asks.

Joe & Janice Sipia

We have recently settled on a summer home in Sea Isle City that can easily be described as the perfect fit. We contacted Patrick Halliday to help us with our search and the experience exceeded all expectations.

Patrick was a quick study in understanding our requirements, but even more importantly quickly associated with our tastes and preferences. By doing so, he was able to quickly hone in on properties that had real potential. To our amazement, Patrick found the perfect property even though it was not even on the market. That initiative and creativity was the first indication that Patrick was more a partner in our project than an agent. As we proceeded through the purchasing process, it became even clearer that he owned the outcome with us. His knowledge of design and construction was an added bonus as we brainstormed current and future modifications.

Based on his initiative, creativity, perseverance, broad related experience, professionalism and engaging personality, we would certainly work with Patrick again and would recommend him without reservation.

Patrick has assisted us in the purchase and sales of vacation and rental properties in OC since 2007. Almost as important (if not more so), he helped us not buy units which he could see would not be a good fit for us. If you hear or read other glowing remarks about Patrick, I can affirm that those are understated. Patrick's knowledge, effort, and deication his only exceeded in OC by the number of grains of sand on the beach. Working with Patrick has improved my family's life and closeness, lifting both our spirits as well as my own job performance. Also, my dog likes Patrick too!

We would recommend Patrick, without hesitation, for anyone considering a shore property. He provides friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional service from selection through settlement and beyond. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Patrick and we could not be happier with our new shore home in Ocean City. Thanks Patrick......we hope to send you more business soon!!!

Todd and Sara McNulty

Four years ago we contacted Pat and purchased our first home in OC.  This past year we decided to upgrade so of course, we again contacted Pat.  Pat became our listing agent and began our journey to seek out our new property. Pat went above and beyond what "any" agent would do.  He would drop everything he was doing when we called and would rearrange his schedule to accommodate our needs.  Pat's true professionalism was evident in his patience with us on the numerous times he took us to see properties… sometimes the same one over and over. Pat's knowledge and passion of OC is unparalleled.  There are so many real estate agent's in OC, but the only one who stands above the rest is Pat Halliday.  He is second to none! Thank you Pat!

Patrick is truly the most professional, responsive, considerate, conscientious, attentive and ambitious realtor we've ever had the pleasure to work with --- both in the buying and selling of our homes. We will continue to recommend him to all potential clients, as they can be assured of a painless and easy transaction from their first phone call, to the last page signed at the settlement table. Hoping to be able to work with Patrick for the next deal in the future !!!

Lee and Laura McManus

Our experience of working with Patrick Halliday is nothing short of excellent.  Pat represented the seller when we first met with him and helped negotiate a fair market price for our summer home.  He worked continuously during one of the most important weekends of his life, his wedding, while we worked out the final details of our contract. Because of his professionalism, we chose Pat to represent us while listing our home and shopping for a new summer home.  He was quickly able to assess our needs, price point, and taste and continuously updated us with new homes on the market.  We are in constant contact with Pat regarding our home on the market, activity of open houses and walk-throughs, as well as various situations that could help us get into our dream summer home.  There is no other realtor we'll ever use again.  How could we go back after being so spoiled?

Patrick,

My wife and I would just like to express our appreciation for your excellent customer service as we enjoy the 1yr. anniversary of our new home.

From the first day we toured our new Halliday-Leonard home under construction, you have provided wise counsel on all aspects of the construction phase, settlement, and indeed even helpful hints on “best practices” for summer rental.  Your high level of personal customer service and attention, promptness of communication reply, and dedication to satisfaction of our requests have been extraordinary. Your passion and knowledge of the Ocean City home market have resulted in a wonderful family “escape” home and solid investment as well.

Our new Halliday-Leonard home on 4th street is simply gorgeous. The high quality of build and attention to detail is evident in every aspect of our home. The Halliday-Leonard construction team has promptly addressed our one year “punch list” of minor repairs, and even provided several “free of charge” extra’s.

It is refreshing to see the pride your construction team takes in going the extra mile for your customers.

All of our visiting friends comment on the “family friendly” and cozy great room/kitchen design, as well as the delight of sitting on any one of our three outside decks.

And a special thanks to Fox Real Estate for their competent and professional assistance, with a special note of thanks to Clay Rossiter and the rental team for efficient handling of our summer rental weeks.

Again, thank you for making our special vacation home dream come to life. We look forward to many years of happy family memories in Ocean City.

Warm regards,

Mara and Jack LaVoice

“Honestly, I don’t know if I can even put into words all that Patrick did for us as our realtor. To start, he would return a call or an email faster than any realtor I have ever dealt with – no matter what time of day. He has a vast knowledge of the overall housing market as well as the specific locations we were interested in. He would point out the good and bad of each area/house that we looked at – being extremely honest. After just a few meetings, Pat was able to truly understand our likes and dislikes so he could easily narrow down the houses that would be worth our time to look at. We were coming from out of state and that was a big time saver.

When we decided on the house, he was extremely helpful through the mortgage process – up to and including closing. We had a very difficult mortgage company and Pat would call our mortgage agent himself to try and keep things moving. Even weeks after the closing was complete he was still just as responsive as ever with any questions I had. Patrick is one of the most professional people I have had the pleasure to work with. You won’t go wrong when dealing with him.”

The Kowalek Family

Pat Halliday has been an absolute pleasure to work with. My family and I had such a great experience working with Pat, and would highly recommend him to anyone. Pat sold our house on 23rd Street in less than 3 weeks, and helped us find our dream home in the Gardens shortly thereafter.

Throughout the entire process of selling and buying our homes, Pat was always extremely helpful, and always went above and beyond. He was available to talk any time of the day, and has sat with my family on multiple occasions to talk through ideas and answer questions. Pat listened to what my family wanted in a new home and diligently worked to find us the perfect fit. Pat’s professionalism, work ethic, honesty, sincerity and knowledge of the island made him the perfect partner for buying and selling our homes.

Thanks Pat!

Matt Leonard

I want to thank Patrick for a professional and extremely painless real estate experience.  When I first contacted him, it was clear that I was not sure on what I was in the market for.  He was patient and enthusiastic about discussing options, finding properties, and answering the endless questions I had about purchasing my first home.

During the entire process, Pat was always great about calling back, honest recommendations, and following through on what he said.  I would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling in the area

Thanks again Pat!

Cliff and Linda Montgomery

Pat was a fantastic surprise for us! Our own agent never showed up for us at the walk-through. But Pat did. He supported us during the settlement and continued to help us with great ideas and suggestions. He even stopped to check on us as we settled in to our new home! Pat's courtesy, honesty and follow up was exceptional! What a contrast to our own agent! We will call Pat first next time!
