Prior to joining Washington Fine Properties in October of 2017, Pat worked for over 20 years at Evers & Company Real Estate.
Pat says the most satisfying part of her job is finding just the right home for her clients. She believes it is important to leave no stone unturned in serving their interests and needs. Her buyers appreciate the level of diligence, devotion and enthusiasm she brings to her work. Pat holds a Certified Buyers Representative designation, training which she says has enhanced her focus on being able to represent the best interest of her clients.
She applies the same diligence and focus to listings. Her philosophy is that each home needs to be presented to showcase its best features, priced correctly and marketed to its best advantage. Pat says, “Careful presentation and pricing require a good collaborative effort between the sellers and myself; the marketing is my job.” She has an extensive and flexible program of marketing techniques, which she customizes for each separate listing. And it works! Since her first year as an agent over 20 years ago when she won the Rookie of the Year award, she has received numerous awards from the Washington, DC, Association of Realtors recognizing her high level of sales. This past year she received Washingtonian Magazine’s coveted “Best of 2017” realtor award.
Pat received her BA degree from The American University and an M Ed in Foreign Language Education from the University of Maryland. She is fluent in Spanish, having been born and lived many years in Argentina, and has taught in the Maryland public school system.
Pat resides with her husband Ken in a house they designed and had built for their family in Bethesda. She was active in both the Whitman High and Carderock Elementary PTAs. For the past seven years you can find her volunteering every week at Bethesda Cares, a drop-in day shelter which helps place people living unsheltered into permanent supportive housing, help ease life for those on the street and help lower-income tenants to avoid eviction.
Pat has listed and sold properties all over the region from Potomac, to Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Wesley Heights, DC, Roslyn, Arlington and McLean and most places in between. She believes her interest and experience in construction and design as well as the positive feedback she gets from buyers and sellers energize her and enhance her otherwise naturally positive approach and enthusiasm for her work and life in general. The result? The very best in real estate.
As part of her commitment to give back to the community, Pat contributes 15% of her net commission to the Alzheimer's Association.
