Patricia’s interest in real estate began years before obtaining her license. She negotiated her first land purchase – 17-acres of rolling Virginia pasture land – while in her early twenties. She has continued buying and selling property ever since.
In 2010, she became a Florida licensed sales agent. Her professional work ethic, attention to detail, keen negotiating skills and knowledge of the local market has earned her top producer status.
Prior to joining Sotheby’s International Realty she worked for a real estate company in Manalapan, Florida, where she was a recognized waterfront property specialist. In August, 2016, her listing and sale of a non-waterfront residence on Hypoluxo Island broke previous dollar-per-square-foot price records.
She graduated from Marymount High School, holds a BA in English Literature from Mary Baldwin College, and earned a ‘certificat’ in French from a language school in Paris.
Born in Virginia, Patricia previously lived and worked in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, London and Paris before settling on the Florida Intracoastal island she now calls home. She shares her life on Hypoluxo Island – eight miles south of Worth Avenue – with three rescue cats and a Scotsman.
Patricia previously enjoyed a successful career in print journalism and publishing. She worked on staff for the National Geographic Magazine, the National Wildlife Federation book division, American Media and Methuen Publishing. She spent two years in Paris as an Overseas Press correspondent. During her 30 years as a reporter, writer and freelance correspondent she interviewed countless newsmakers and her bylines appeared in papers and magazines in the U.S., the U.K. and Australia.
She starts each day with a three-mile island walk. Among her outside interests are yoga and the preservation of Florida’s flora and fauna.
