A letter from Mary Elaine and Brett Baker:

Dear friend,

Our hope is that you are on this page not just to learn more about Patriot Advantage, but also and more importantly about who we are as individuals. We’re all familiar with the reality of modern life where the technology that makes us so interconnected also makes us feel isolated. Artificial intelligence is enabling machines to perform more and more complicated tasks, and consumers want goods and services at the speed of lightning, conveniences that come at a higher price than what’s on the tag.

We intended from the inception of PA to make sure we never let keeping up with this fast-spinning world take precedence over the importance of establishing close and valued relationships. To put it simply, we believe that values and people matter. We spend an average of a third of our lifetime working. Arguably, entrepreneurs spend more than that. Considering so much of our life is spent at work, we believe that time spent making personal connections will drive success – and give it meaning – every bit as much as getting the job done efficiently and well.

What we have achieved at PA, and strive to maintain, is an experience that combines the convenience of remote work with a culture that fosters empathy, respect, and a true investment in each other. Emotional intelligence, a true servant’s heart, and a genuine desire to see others succeed in life is something AI will never be able to touch.

What keeps us motivated each day are the stories of the relationships being built – stories of the hard work, skill, and attention that our team members give selflessly to make each entrepreneur feel cared for and valued in our hands, and stories of military spouses supporting their families and each other while investing in their entrepreneurs’ success.

We think matching people who know what it means to serve with people who know what it means to create doesn’t just make for better business, it makes for better lives. Will you join us on our journey? Our hope is that you will.

In service,

Mary Elaine and Brett

Farm Talk with Paul Ward. Quick thinking saves a ranch on a fiery Halloween night!

In today’s show, Paul tells us about the fiery Halloween that was experienced in Ventura County & surrounding areas this year.  The “Easy” fire, the “Getty fire, and the “Maria” fire, all happened on, or near, Halloween.  The Easy fire was in Simi Valley, the Getty fire was near the Getty museum in Los Angeles, and the Maria fire started on a mountaintop between the city of Santa Paula and the township of Somis.

Paul talks specifically about the Maria fire, how it affected an area of Somis where he has a ranch property for sale, and explains the reasons why that ranch is still standing today.

Tune in and learn how a quick-thinking ranch hand and a 15,000 gallon cistern helped keep this ranch, and those surrounding it, from burning down!  A fascinating & incredible story!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Chatting Real Estate With Uber Drivers

In this week’s show, Paul tells us about his recent business conference in Las Vegas. Over the course of 5 days, he utilized Uber for transportation 10 times, and during those rides, he had an opportunity to chat with each of the drivers. The info he gathered, although not statistical, was really quite interesting!

Paul learned that, out of the 10 drivers, only one was a native to Las Vegas – all the other drivers had come from different locations, and 2 had even come from different countries. They were attracted to Las Vegas for the low cost of living and were able to earn approximately $30,000 being an Uber driver.

When one of the Uber drivers asked Paul if he had any important tips about real estate, he was very happy to help! Tune in and hear what valuable info Paul shared with her – it’s great info we all need to know!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Buy a Ranch vs. Building From Scratch?

On today’s show, Paul discusses the differences between buying an existing ranch, or starting from scratch and building your own.

Paul tells us about the advantages, and disadvantages, in both.  If you purchase an existing ranch, you can imagine that there are quite a few things that are already built and ready – such as a barn, guest house, animal structures, corrals, orchards, etc. But what you might not realize is that there are other very important things in place, as well – such as underground water, natural gas, and electricity.

The alternative to this, is building a ranch from scratch – purchasing vacant land, designing the ranch of your dreams, and putting it together.  This will appeal to some folks who are very particular and have the time, and the means, to see their vision through to fruition – but there is a lot to consider!

Paul shares a great story about a recent client who was looking at ranch land, both small (5 to 10 acre range), and large (over 100 acres).  His client wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted, so Paul helped him narrow down his wants & needs, and gave him the pros & cons of buying an existing ranch, as well as starting from scratch.

Tune in and hear some valuable information that will help you make an informed real estate decision!
