Mitchells join J Barrett & Company

Patricia and James Mitchell, full-time realtors on the North Shore, have joined J Barrett & Company in the Manchester office.

The Mitchell team has achieved an enviable success record selling 153 homes in seven years.

“Our individual skill sets dovetail seamlessly throughout the entire real estate process,” said James, who also has 25 years of experience in architectural design and residential construction. “In addition, one of us is always available to answer questions or to solve a problem.”

Patricia, who was a licensed stockbroker and has an extensive business background that includes operating her own business, agrees.

“Selling or buying a house is life-changing and the transition process can be difficult,” said Patricia in a statement. “It’s comforting to know that someone is on your side — and we are.”

“We are all about building relationships, developing good communications, listening, analyzing, and then following through,” said James. “J Barrett has that same collaborative approach with every client and with their agents as well.”

“Teamwork on all levels makes it possible to be more successful on all levels,” said Patricia.

“Having real estate professionals of the caliber of James and Patricia is an invaluable asset for our company and all our clients,” said Jon Gray, president, in a statement.

“One of our goals as a company is to constantly expand the depth of our in-house expertise and they are a significant resource in that ongoing effort.”

Long-time Manchester residents, James is originally from Marblehead and Patricia, who grew up in Ohio and California, has lived in the Boston area since 1973.
