Being born and raised in Upstate New York, allows me the opportunity to provide knowledgeable, firsthand experience and information regarding the many attributes our area has to offer. Enjoying the majority of my adult life as an Army spouse allows me to relate to the struggles of moving into a new area with very little information to work with. Asa proud wife of a New York State Corrections Officer and Mother of three, I know that quality time spent with those we love is of the essence.
My Goal as your Real Estate Agent is to allow you that time while I handle the rest. My job is to advocate for you; my client, from beginning to end. I want to make your transition as enjoyable and smooth as possible. As a home-owner myself, I understand the stress that commonly accompanies such an exciting transition. I also understand that buying and selling your home is likely the largest investment of your personal life, and I will treat it as such!

As an accomplished small business owner, software designer, project manager, and interior designer, Patricia has always had her eye on meeting and exceeding her client’s expectations. Her success has, in the main part, been due to three key skills: listening, communicating, and planning. It was these skills Patricia employed with high-powered NYC corporations and ones she now brings to her discriminating real estate clients. While born in NYC, Patricia has second home roots in the Mohawk Valley for her whole life. She now lives full-time in Dolgeville, NY with her husband Sergio Arbustini, local electrician cause celebre. Together they have made the Mohawk valley their home and loving every day of it. Patricia is passionate about meeting the needs and goals of her clients. Her specialty: bringing peace of mind to home sellers and buyers. With personal experience with both selling and buying properties, she deeply understands the typical (unnecessary?) psychological roller coaster associated with both sites. As a River Hills Properties and New York State licensed real estate agent, Patricia will ensure that your home transaction will be handled professionally, efficiently, and above all… exceed your expectations.
