Patrick got his start as a Realtor during the dark days of the real estate market, back in 2010. With more than half of all sales being either bank-owned foreclosures, or short sales, it was certainly a tough time to cut one’s teeth. Operating and thriving during these difficult times required Patrick to develop the tenacity and the finesse necessary for dealing with all the moving parts of a challenging real estate transaction. As hard as those transactions were, they did provide for excellent deals for the buyers that he worked with. To this day Patrick still has a special place in his Realtor heart for the first-time home buyer, the deal-seeker, and the real estate investor alike.
As the market began to rebound in 2014, and then to gain a raging head-of-steam by 2016, Patrick’s business also grew – incorporating a healthy balance of both buyers and sellers. When on the listing side of a transaction Patrick loves the opportunity to play with design, staging, and the absolute best in real estate photography and marketing. Patrick also believes firmly that it shouldn’t cost someone an arm and a leg to sell their house, and he has been challenging the real estate industry status-quo on listing fees and services provided. This is representative of his client-first philosophy, which drives and guides all of his business decisions.
A native Oregonian, and a Portlander since the age of 8, Patrick has an intimate knowledge of the city’s neighborhoods – from the inner-eastside all the way out to the suburbs. Where knowledge of a city’s culture meets the knowledge of changing demographics and industry trends, that’s where true understanding of a real estate marketplace exists. It is Patrick’s pleasure to share this city with you, whether you’ve lived here your whole life, or are moving here for the first time
Currently, Patrick lives in the Rose City Park neighborhood of NE Portland with his girlfriend Jamie, and his dog Dusty. In his free time he enjoys working in his garden, backpacking and hiking in the PNW, traveling abroad, sampling Portland’s food & drink scene, and drumming in his band “Huge Manatee”.
Patrick is a firm believer in real estate as the ultimate wealth building investment vehicle, and has put his money where his mouth is with his two rental properties and a personal residence. But perhaps even more importantly he believes in the intrinsic value that that comes with living in a home that you own. Whatever your real estate goals are, Patrick would love the chance to listen to you and see what he can do to help.
Patrick has an encyclopedic knowledge of Portland, which makes him a great asset when looking for particular areas or neighborhoods. His easy going demeanor and calm-under-pressure attitude made our home buying process a much less stressful situation than we expected. We also appreciated Patrick going the distance for us, helping us review documents and negotiate repairs - and bringing the transaction to a successful close
