Patty helps clients make the best decisions and reach even the toughest goals in changing markets. She is part of an elite team at Long & Foster, the top-selling real estate firm in the Mid-Atlantic..
Patty's extensive knowledge of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area comes from having lived in some of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the area, including Silver Spring and Rockville in Maryland, Capitol Hill in D.C., and Alexandria and Arlington in Virginia. She understands that real estate is also about lifestyle, and she enjoys helping sellers and buyers discover their perfect neighborhoods with intangible features that make communities feel like home.
Patty is known for her friendly, high-energy approach, and clients choose to work with her because of her reputation for reliability, determination, and market knowledge. She is also an experienced negotiator and advocate who customizes the home search or listing experience for each client. As a mother who has moved with her family several times, she understands the many phases and 'life cycles' of home buying & selling; she particularly loves working with families at those milestone points: starting out, expanding, and scaling back.
She comes by the skill of connecting people honestly – she counseled marketing and public relations clients on how to connect to target audiences for more than 20 years. She is an expert project manager and strategic counselor with specialties in community relations, social media, and digital storytelling. When she began to add real estate-related accounts to her client roster, she got hooked. After happily transitioning from marketing to real estate, she's now using her mad communications skills to her clients' advantage!
Patty was born in Hampton, VA, but spent her formative years in East Tennessee. After graduating with a degree in Communications from the University of Tennessee, she moved to the D.C. area in 1993. She now lives in Purcellville with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, two Guinea pigs, and a Russian tortoise. She loves to watch her oldest play in the Loudoun Valley High School Marching Band, her youngest play travel softball, and follows them both in a variety of other activities. Patty is an avid walker, writes fiction, plays tennis, and volunteers with several organizations in the area, including the Loudoun County Animal Shelter and Franklin Park Arts Center.
