Patrick is originally from County Mayo in the West of Ireland. He ventured "across the great pond" in 1992, instantly fell in love with all the wonderful attractions, restaurants and of course the beautiful lakefront in Chicago, and he decided to make it his home. Patrick enjoys learning about all of the interesting neighborhoods and communities within the city as well as the area suburbs. He is very knowledgeable with the neighborhoods within the city as well as the suburbs.
Patrick initially took a great interest in acquiring homes and rehabbing them so others could enjoy living in this great city. He rehabbed various homes in the Andersonville/Edgewater neighborhood. Patrick then decided to become involved in the other side of home-sales as a real estate broker. He joined the DreamTown Team. He has experience in helping his clients sell and purchase properties including single family homes, condominiums, townhouses, and multi-unit buildings. It is his personal goal to help all of his clients sell their homes in a timely manner and/or find the homes of their dreams. He is very conscientious about making the best match for all of his clients.
Patrick continues to live in the city he loves along with his wife (Beth, a registered nurse) and three children (Caitlin, Megan, and Sean). He very much enjoys participating in his kids' activities which include cross-country, track and field, basketball, and music.
I thoroughly enjoyed Patrick Carney being my real estate agent. His passion for helping me find the property of my dreams was unbelievable. Patrick Carney is the person for you if this is your first purchase or if you are a real estate investor professional. I have a unique situation because I once was a real estate investor before but after my partner relationship went debunked. I found myself starting all over a decade later at ground zero. In the past, I have worked with other real estate agents but I can say he supersede all of them. His passion for you to find the property that specifically meets your needs in relationship: to location, cost, and other important things you feel are important are unparalleled. His patience guidance with working not only with you but all parties involved including but not limited to: seller's real estate agent, seller’s attorney, your attorney, and or all parties involved to get the situation resolved and the deal closed. Patrick Carney attention to detail in relationship to things you may not see that maybe an issue in the future. He is always available by phone, email, and or text. If and when he goes on vacation which is rarely he is working with you and right there to meet any need you have. Most real estate agents after the sale is completed you can’t reach them because they only saw you as a commission check - not Patrick. He congratulated me after my closing and then a week later he called me to say congratulation for having my property for a week. In conclusion, when I purchase or sale my next property Patrick will be my agent. Whenever, I know or meet someone who is looking for a real estate agent Patrick is number one in my book. As I write this letter tomorrow will be my one month anniversary of the purchase of a property Patrick help me get. To be honest with you, if he was not my agent I would not have had gotten this property because it was not on the market yet. Since Patrick has excellent relationship building skills he was able to network with other real estate agents and find a property that exceeded my expectations that was not even on the market yet.
Patrick provided exceptional service and support as my wife and I purchase our home in Chicago. His expertise went far beyond sales but Patrick provided helpful insight and his previous experience in construction to our home buying process. Patrick totally represented our interest during the process. Even after the closing, Patrick continues to follow up and check in with us to ensure everything is going well! We have recommended Patrick to our friends and colleagues. Chris & Jasmine Payton
After 25 years in a wonderful suburb, we decided to move back to Chicago. Our agent, Patrick Carney helped us prepare to sell and find a new home. With Patrick's extensive knowledge of the real estate market and his thorough understanding of contracts, both for buyers and sellers, the process that may have seemed daunting went smoothly. We highly recommend Patrick for real estate needs. We're very happy in our new home and plan to stay for along time, but if need arises, we'd certainly contact Patrick again. Frank and Mary Corbett
I am writing this letter to highly recommend Patrick Carney. He was my real estate agent from Dream Town Realty, and I consider myself very fortunate in having had him Represent me in the purchase of my first home. Patrick’s professionalism and perseverance guided me throughout the home buying process, which made my search for a home a complete success. With Patrick, setting up appointments to view properties was easy. I could easily reach him, and he was always very prompt and flexible with setting up the appointments. He was also very knowledgable, and was always ready to answer any questions that I had. His ability to work with other real estate agents also made him instrumental in the purchase of my home. The home I chose happened to be a short sale with a difficult/unprofessional agent representing the seller of the property. Patrick understood how much I desired to own the home, and he implemented all the strategies necessary to overcome any obstacles that were put in our path. Patrick remained professional with perseverance throughout his many conversations and meeting with the seller’s agent. Aside from his professional qualities, I can also say that Patrick is a very amiable person. He was always ready to listed to what I had to say, and never game me the impression that he was in a rush and did not have time for me. I also never felt like I was being rushed or pressured by Patrick to buy any particular property. In conclusion, I highly recommend Patrick Carney as a real estate agent, because I am confident in his professional and personal qualities. I think that anyone who has bought a home, or is in the process of buying a home, knows that many factors are involved in a successful home purchase. This is why having someone like Patrick on your team is so important to increase your chances that your home search will be a success. Sincerely, Angel Alcantar
Kira and I would like to take a moment to put in writing our experience in working with Patrick Carney to secure our home in Sauganash, a suburb in the northern Chicago area. We first met Patrick at an Open House when we were in the early stages of our search for a new home. We knew from the initial meeting that Patrick was a true professional who combines a thorough knowledge of the Chicago market with a personal touch that allowed us to feel connected to him at various times of the day in a quick moving marketplace. Patrick took our extensive list of priorities and worked with us to evaluate multiple properties. This time spent with Patrick allowed him to craft an idea of the perfect house for us, which culminated in our successful bid and purchase of a fantastic house that has now been filled with our personal touches as our dream home! Throughout the search, Patrick was an unbiased sounding board and gave us in-depth advice on nearby neighborhoods, market trends, comparable home values and even renovation ideas that he has seen in similar homes. Kira and I would HIGHLY recommend Patrick Carney! Chris Walsh and Kira Rogatnik
I want to recommend the professionalism of Patrick Carney. I was living in Spokane WA and needed to relocate to Chicago. Over to course of one week, Patrick was able to take my loosely presented wish list and locate six different condos to look at. In a time-crunch situation, Patrick was consistently professional, knowledgeable, and available. Once I decided on a condo, Patrick was a great negotiator who represented my needs and interests. He quickly and proactively guided me through the complex process of the sale. Even after the sale, Patrick was helpful in handling the myriad of mundane details involved in the relocation process. I am grateful to Patrick for his help and professionalism. I am happy to recommend him. Edgar Borchardt
My previous agent went for a trip to Australia and never came back. Before he left, he told me he would have colleague, Patrick Carney at Dream Town take care of me. As a result, he did and I just brought a condo in Rogers Park. Patrick is a great agent. He is diligent, responsive, and very patient with his clients. I pretty well knew of what I was looking for, and he was very in-tune to my needs. Besides, Patrick was great to work with. His friendliness, sense of Responsibility, and attention to every details make him an unique real estate professional. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an honest and hard-working realtor. Thank you Patrick, for not just being my agent, but also being my friend. Dorcas Chan
Patrick is a very approachable and knowledgeable realtor. He spent many evenings and weekends showing us condos until we found the right one - we probably saw over 20 properties! His experience with home renovations was incredibly helpful; we could bounce home improvement ideas off of Patrick when we visited condos and brainstorm timing and costs with him. As first time home buyers, my partner and I felt like we were in great hands. Patrick explained every aspect of our sale clearly and stayed with us through the entire closing. Patrick is dedicated to his clients and truly cares about helping people find the right home. Betsy Ferrell
