Fluent in Spanish
Prior to joining Washington Fine Properties in October of 2017, Pat worked for more than 20 years at another local real estate brokerage.
For Pat, 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, and her buyers appreciate the level of diligence, devotion, and enthusiasm she brings to her work. Pat Holds a Certified Buyers Representative designation, training that she feels has enhanced her focus on being able to represent the best interests 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 close to 30 years ago, she has received numerous awards from the Washington, DC, Association of Realtors, recognizing her high level of sales.
Pat received her BA degree from The American University and a Master’s 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 PTA. She has also volunteered with Bethesda Cares, a drop-in shelter that helps place people living unsheltered into permanent supportive housing, helps ease life for those on the street and helps lower-income tenants avoid eviction.
As part of her commitment to give back to the community, Pat contributes 15% of her net commission to DonorsChoose (helping educators meet the educational needs of our neediest children).
Pat has listed and sold properties all over the region from Potomac, Chevy Chase, and Bethesda, MD; to Wesley Heights, DC; to Roslyn, Arlington, and McLean, VA, 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.
