“My lifelong dream was to become an architect and then a doctor so I could go to remote places and help people build their homes and cure them if they were sick,” she says. “I guess when you are young, you have lofty goals.”

Her life has always been about overcoming challenges. She was brought up in a modest household with loving parents who taught her the meaning of hard work and the power of one’s strength regardless of adversity. Her parents would say, “Always ask. You already have the No. The only other possible answer is Yes.”

It wasn’t always easy, but Patricia worked her way through college and earned the equivalent of a master’s degree in architecture and then went to MEDICAL SCHOOL for one year. Although she didn’t become a doctor, she is passionate about helping people. She has volunteered at a children’s hospital emergency room in Buenos Aires, directing people from the front desk, helping nurses attend to their little patients, and holding children’s hands in the operating room. In Washington, D.C.,she helped care for babies given up by their drug-addicted parents through the Boarder Baby Project, and she read and recorded entire books in Spanish to be distributed to the blind.

She did fulfill her dream of becoming an architect and loved designing houses for many years—uniting beauty and functionality—and loves searching for them far and near on every trip. She truly believes in the familiar saying, “Home is where the heart is.” One day she thought, “If I love homes so much and have so much fun touring properties far away, why don’t I do it all the time?”

She decided to become a realtor and show properties on a daily basis. “So in a way, I am still helping people . . . by guiding them when choosing the right house or the one with the most potential or helping them showcase their home the best way possible.”  Whether moving across town or across state lines, there are many points to consider when buying or selling a home. Patricia’s clients appreciate her insight and professional guidance while they are making this major life decision. She understands how frustrating the process of buying and selling can be, particularly negotiating favorable terms during a down economy. Her clients count on her expertise to help open a door to their future.

She was always “on”, answered all our questions immediately and listened to all our needs and conditions. She has held our hands every step of the way. She is a great real estate agent. I want her to sell my current house next and will recommend her to anyone who asks without hesitation. Thank you" (renowned orthopedic surgeon)
