How I Helped.. stories

Guy Perreault

I HELPED… this amazing person on 10 different successful real estate transactions.  Both as military relocations and personal real estate adventures.  From residential houses to multi-family residential buildings, we have seen a lot together.  

“Thank you” Guy, for your continued loyalty and trust in my business expertise.  And, welcome to the family!

This is what Guy has to say:

“A test of time, quality and quantity “

“Over a decade of professionalism and friendship through an impressive 4 purchases and 6 sales. Patricia is adaptable to individual goals and able to refer out other reputable agents to support CAF Postings in other Base towns. Consistently high results through a strong systematic yet personable approach.”

Cindi & Pete Olsen

I HELPED… this beautiful couple find the PERFECT log home north of our lovely Deep River community.  After being more than ready to leave the hustle & bustle of city life behind them, they are now in their “forever” home living the dream with their pack of wonderful rescue dogs.  Oh, and the dogs REALLY LOVE being out of the city too!  

I am SO PLEASE you called me to represent you with your purchase here in our area.  “Thank You”

  • I had to use my PINK hammer to get into the lock box on the door of the log house [key was jammed].  Pete had a good laugh at this but was impressed that, not only did I carried ALL the tools of the trade in a toolbox in my car [if not his preferred choice of colour] but that I was actually able to open the lock box with the help of the hammer.  

This is what Cindi & Pete have to say:

“Here are phrases that come to mind when we consider Patricia’s skills as a realtor:

– incredibly knowledgeable 

– super organized

– loads of integrity

– an absolute dream to work with

– reliable and committed to meeting clients’ needs

-definitely goes the extra mile

-energizer bunny work ethic

We could list more for sure!”

Mark & Linda Zane

I HELPED… this lovely couple recently relocate to the beautiful Ottawa Valley from the busy southwester Ontario corridor.  Linda also relocated her PROFESSIONAL HOME STAGING company and is now on board as a home stager.  

Welcome to the Valley my lovely friends and dog-walking buddies”.

This is what Mark & Linda have to say:

“Being new to the area, Patricia expertly helped us navigate the challenges of relocating and the volatile market that was occurring [end of COVID]. She is well-connected to the community and was committed to finding our new home that suited our needs and desires. She listened to us, has excellent communication skills, great at negotiating, and is a lot of fun. We highly recommend Patricia as she is the best that we have ever worked with!

Tamara Reist

I HELPED… this wonderful, strong and determined woman find one of the best “deals” I had seen in a while.  Tamara bought a run-down home in a very desirable neighbourhood and with love, sweat & tears [and possibly some choice words], transformed a sad property into a vibrant home with a beautiful park-like backyard.  Your neighbours must love you to-bits!  

You were great to work with my friend and I always enjoy talking to you.”

This is what Tamara has to say:

“Patricia, you are knowledgeable about the unique market in Petawawa.

You are honest, non-pushy, patient and ethical.

Great working with your Patricia!! “

Mike Ragotte  

I HELPED… this CAF Member sell a very unique house on Cory Lake under a strict time frame.  We did some serious staging, ended up with a fantastic comprehensive photography package, including an awesome video.  We worked hard getting the house ready and boy, did the effort pay off.  

Thank you so much Mike for asking me to represent you with the sale of your house during your Posting out of Pet.”

This is what Mike has to say:

“Patricia was able to sell my unique property with effective marketing and good valuation.  Her warmth, great attitude and expertise would certainly be an asset to any seller.  

Highly recommended!”


I HELPED… this CAF Member and his family with his military relocation here to Petawawa.  We saw a LOT of houses during their HHT but it was a success in the end as they found a great home in a fabulous location.  

  • The only downside was when I make him put down a gorgeous and super-friendly Bengal cat that he was snuggling, and contemplating taking home, during one of our showings. lol

This is what R.G. has to say:

“Patricia was our agent when we relocated to Petawawa with the Canadian Armed Forces.  We were VERY satisfied with her high level of professionalism and her attention to detail, especially when it came time to negotiate and sign paperwork.  

I highly recommend Patricia.”

Lesley Andela   

I HELPED… this awesome woman find the perfect house after 2 yrs of devoted searching, during the pandemic.  It was challenging and trying, but in the end, did you ever get a great house.  

Lesley, thank you so much for your continual support and faith in my ability to guide you through the buying process, often from afar [virtually].”

This is what Lesley has to say:

“I purchased my home while living in Southern Ontario and I was nervous about the process.  Patricia was extremely patient with me, and together, we managed to find my “forever” home.  

Thank you Patricia!”

Skip Newman

I HELPED… find this man find a wonderful house WE call home!  After sitting at the curb in his Jeep, having decided he did not want to view inside, I convinced him to walk through it with me.  The natural light and spaciousness, plus the original hardwood floors, got his attention.  By the time I took him outside to view the semi-private yard, he was hooked.  We put some blood, sweat and tears into this house but we love it!  

This is what Skip has to say:

I know first-hand that Patricia is COMMITTED to her clients.  I see it on a daily basis.  

She has been my Realtor® for 12+yrs.  She is also my wife J

DeeDee Laroche

I HELPED… this fabulous lady with 2 real estate transactions; the first one was challenging, stressful and emotional.  In the end, we succeeded and found a solid little house that DeeDee made into a wonderful home.  DeeDee you have always been great to work with and talk too.  

Wishing you many moments filled with love & laughter at your new waterfront adventure.”

This is what DeeDee has to say:

“When I met Patricia at an Open House, right from the start, I liked her friendly professional style.  I listed with Patricia shortly after and she went above and beyond in helping me sell my house.  Patricia’s professional calm manner made a stressful situation an enjoyable one.  

It is my pleasure to recommend Patricia Newman! “

Julia Moore & Neil Burton

I HELPED… this superb couple each sell their individual homes and purchase a fantastic house together.  I met them at one of the first open houses I ever did in this area, having only just relocated from southern Ontario.  People like them stick with you forever.  

Julia and Neil, thank you so much for not only working with me, but also trusting in me and referring me to ppl you love.”

This is what Julia & Neil have to say:

“Patricia is exceptionally energetic, well-connected, full of great ideas [for getting a home ready for sale] and honest about things to be aware of [in looking at new homes].  We never felt pressured or pushed into buying or selling our homes.  Her calm relaxed approach was welcomed and helped us to deal with all issues easily.  I will wholeheartedly continue to recommend Patricia! “

Kevin Mahoney & Alison Seely

I HELPED… this dynamic couple on 3 real estate transactions from vacant land to residential recreational property.  They have amazing stories, Alison is even a published author, and time spent with them was just plain enjoyable!  They even invited us [Duke & myself] to walk their stunning property on their homestead.  Thank you.. for everything!  

This is what Kevin & Alison have to say:

We were fortunate to have Patricia Newman represent us on 3 real estate transactions.  She is always upbeat, enthusiastic and works very hard to make the experience of buying and selling as smooth as possible and invariably prompt in replying to questions.  Patricia’s business practices are transparent and ethical and her knowledge of the market and advise was sound and very helpful.  

Shelby & Dane Prosper

I HELPED… this extremely talented and energetic husband & wife team find a magnificent home in the Whitewater Region.  They became my clients on “default”, as their original agent had a conflict with scheduling, and I navigated their challenging HHT with a better-than-hoped-for result.  It is my pleasure to introduce to you TPC, my photographers, marketing guru and dear friends.  

I am very grateful to have this Team part of  Your captivating boyz make me laugh every time we Zoom.  Thank you for being a constant!”

This is what Shelby & Dane have to say:

Patricia was our Realtor® who came highly recommended to us. Together we found a beautiful forever-home in Whitewater Region.

If you’re looking to buy or sell here in the Ottawa Valley, Patricia and Deb are the go-to team with the expertise and knowledge to help you every step of the way. For those of you selling, we look forward to meeting you and providing you with stunning photos for your listing to get your home SOLD!

Judy Civiletto – Century 21

I HELPED… this Agent from New York state who needed a local referring Realtor® for her granddaughter, a Reservist with the US Military [who also just wrote her Bar exam] who moved to Petawawa to be with her husband, a CAF Member.  This amazing couple had never lived together due to the challenges inflicted during covid, Cnd/US Board crossings and military deployments.  

“It was such a heartfelt experience working with you Julia & Geoff.”   

This is what Judy has to say:

“Thank you so much for being an “above and beyond” referring Realtor® for my granddaughter and her husband.  Your patience and guidance made buying their first home a wonderful experience.  They absolutely love it and have nothing but kind words to say about you and the whole experience! 

Again, thank you for everything.”
