My wife and I recently purchased a home in Darien and Patty Reis from Halstead was our broker. We are moving from NYC and had no past experience working with Patty who was referred by ReLo-Direct. Over our six month search she was absolutely tremendous to work with, always being consultative, professional and responsive, as well as very warm. Patty took a strong interest in making sure we found the right home and after numerous showings we negotiated a close. It was our pleasure to give Patty the business as she earned it and has been a great advocate on our behalf. We thought it was important to let you know what a great broker you have in Patty Reis. She is genuinely concerned about doing the right thing and we feel confident that her ethics and experience/relationships will serve your firm well for many years to come. - M.M. & M.M.
Patty Reis is a “local schools expert” who has been very successful with families moving to or within Darien, Rowayton, and New Canaan. She offers extensive knowledge of the towns she serves, and a unique understanding of the school systems, especially in Darien. Her deep level of volunteer involvement in the local schools has made her conversant in the workings of the school systems and the vast offerings for children from pre-school through high school in the area. Currently serving on community boards alongside the Superintendent of Schools for Darien, Patty has rare access to developments in our schools and to members of the school administration and Board of Education.
Patty believes that even for buyers or sellers who don’t have children to educate, the exceptional schools and low-by-comparison taxes help ensure future returns on real estate investments in our area. Buyers with children, even those who are pregnant with their first child, are coming to Fairfield County because of the schools. Others considering buying or selling, are confident in their property values because they know that strong schools attract buyers, now and in the future.
Patty was previously a licensed realtor in Atlanta, Georgia. Prior to real estate, she enjoyed a 15-year career in advertising where she managed the campaigns for such brands as American Express, Reebok, Drexel Burnham Lambert, Pizza Hut and Miller Brewing Company. Leveraging her knowledge of the local market paired with an advertising and marketing background, Patty delivers exceptional results for buyers and sellers alike.
A Darien resident since 2001, Patty is an active volunteer in the community. Among other roles, she has served as Co-Chair of the Council of Darien School Parents, Co-Chair of the Ox Ridge School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), Co-Chair Darien Youth Commission’s Teen Options Program, Board of Directors for The Community Fund of Darien, Human Services Planning Council of Darien and Block Captain for Center for Hope.
Before moving to Darien with her husband and 2 children, Patty lived in Atlanta, GA, Fairfield, CT, New York, NY, Los Angeles, CA, and Los Gatos, CA. She is a graduate of UCLA.
