Patrick Foran is in a league of his own. I began working with Pat when I was looking to find a larger location for my business. What I thought I was getting was a realtor, what I got was a whole lot more. Not only did Pat take the time to truly understand my needs and budget he came up with creative ways to meet those needs and stay within our budget. Having it be the first time I have ever moved my business it was an intimidating process, but Pat was there every step of the way. He is a phenomenal resource with connections and ideas to fit any need. Patrick is kind, understanding, and patient. He takes the time to explain any detail to put your mind at ease if needed and helps it all make sense. No matter what the circumstance, whether it be helping with renovations, budget or parking, he has a number of fantastic ideas and solutions. I couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else. He exceeded my expectations in more ways then I can describe. If you have the fortune of working with Pat, you too will agree Patrick Foran is in a league of his own.

I have used Foran Realty, Inc. for my recent real estate transaction on Cape Cod, and based on that experience, I will use Foran Realty again and again whenever necessary. Pat Foran, the owner, uses a very result driven strategy when working with his clients, yet he combines this ” can do” philosophy with a highly ethical manner of doing business. He is very skilled at working within the intricacies and rules controlling real estate transactions in Massachusetts. He always kept me informed of what was happening from the start to the end of process. Thank you, Pat.

Our experience with Foran Realty was very positive. We were referred to them by someone who has a friend who was very happy with their service. Patrick and Melissa were very helpful and effective. They were there throughout every step of our new home purchase. While we were in Dennis on vacation, we were allowed to use copying and fax services in their office. We were able to manage finalizing our Dennis purchase from our home in NY with no problems because Patrick was so helpful in arranging everything. Patrick always responded immediately to every email and text message we sent him. We have had multiple experiences with real estate brokers, and in comparison we have to say that Foran Realty has been the best so far when it came to honesty, integrity and professionalism.

Pat Foran at Foran Realty has managed the summer rental of my cottage in Dennis for the last 4 years. Thanks to Pat’s efforts we went from an occasional rental to a fully booked season each year. The renters have been great (no complaints from the neighbors!) and many have become “year after year” regulars.

Patrick was the seller’s agent. I was the buyer. I bought the house from Patrick’s seller and promptly listed my Cape house with Foran Realty. Let me tell you why.
Patrick gives you premium service in every way. His knowledge of the smallest things in the house was refreshing. His communication was “immediate turn-around” (not within 24 hours). His read of the negotiation was spot-on and made the process painless (an overnight process). His can-do attitude was refreshing (hate others “explanation” droning on). His follow-through was A+ right through the closing (his team has the same values). Give Patrick a call. You won’t be disappointed.

Thanks for all your help in selling the house. You went above and beyond in getting everything on schedule and taken care of. “Especially delivering my check to the beach.” I would certainly call Foran Realty again.
Thanks again Patrick.

“We were apprehensive about listing our place during a tough market. Patrick Foran gave us the information that helped us make our best decision. The value of his vast and current network is rivaled only by his old-fashioned work ethic. Patrick managed the process from beginning to end and our home sold before we knew it. Patrick is a pleasure and a pro.”

“We would just like to thank Patrick for everything he did for us while we were selling our home. Selling a home is not easy, especially when it includes replacing your septic system, removing a deck, putting that deck back up, removing a fence, and putting it back up, as well as more “little jobs” that needed to get done to make the sale go smoothly. Patrick had all the resources we needed to get all these jobs done quickly. Patrick also donated his own hours of manual labor to help us meet our deadline. We are very impressed with his dedication to his clients, and REALLY appreciate all his hard work in our successful sale! At our closing, the buyer of our home even expressed to us how impressed he was with Patrick’s work ethic.
We are now in the process of house hunting, and Patrick has already demonstrated that same commitment, looking down all avenues to help us find the right home for our family.
We recommend Foran Realty to all who are seeking help buying/selling/or renting. Patrick really puts 110% into every client”

Patrick, Thank you for the excellent experience we recently had with you as our real estate agent. We were apprehensive about hiring a real estate agent primarily because of the negatives stories we have heard of some being aggressive and overly assertive. After our first visit with we decided to go ahead with the with the sale of our house with you as our agent. After our first meeting we found you very comfortable, informative and honest. You presented us with good ideas and suggestions and left the decision to us. You were informative, trustworthy and always available. The listing proceeded so well that we increased the sales price of the house. We were quickly informed when our property was shown and given written feedback. We felt confident with you. We had 3 offers and accepted the 3rd. We have no complaints. You are the best!

Patrick Foran was enormously helpful to me when I sold my home in East Dennis in August, 2017. He was very responsive to my requests, competent in pricing my house based on its market value, and efficient in arranging and recommending vendors to take care of a range of issues: e.g., upgrading my septic tank, renovating my basement following a flood due to a major rain storm, working with Habitat for Humanity International to take house items for their clients, and making an appointment with a junk company to clean out whatever remained in my home. Knowing that I did not live near by, he stepped in whenever I was unavailable. He was a pleasure to work with and considered any issue that I addressed as worthy of a reasonable, thoughtful, and understanding response.
