A San Antonio native, Patricia graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in Spanish. She worked in sales and management in fashion and art before becoming a Realtor in Santa Fe in 1988. A Rio Grande School parent, she is married to attorney David Carlson Smith, a Yale graduate who practices intellectual property. She is also a member of the Santa Fe Chapter of the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma and in the Social Directory of San Antonio, Texas. When she can find the time, she enjoys skiing, attending concerts, traveling, scuba diving, fly fishing and collecting art.

With her background in sales, Patricia brings people skills to closing deals. Her experience in Santa Fe real estate transactions has branched out into the complexities of mortgage financing, title insurance, construction matters and a multitude of successful sales where both buyers and sellers are more than satisfied with the end results.

Patricia has an exceptional ability to track down the available properties that fit her clients' needs. For those who are selling, she markets properties in an aggressive, professional manner with the utmost flair and effectiveness. Patricia is a positive, energetic person who wants her customers to feel confident that they are getting the help they are looking for in a rapidly changing market.

Patricia loves Santa Fe for its 360-degree mountain views, skiing in the winter, and hiking and tennis the rest of the year. Not only the weather, but the historic blending of Hispanic, Native American, artistic and diverse cultures means that Santa Fe has many activities and events to offer. Patricia also enjoys the great food and interesting people of Santa Fe.
