    Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

    About Patrick

    As a native of Brooklyn Heights and raised in a townhouse by an interior designer and a lawyer, Patrick has always had an obsession with real estate, design and details.

    He started his professional life as a commercial film editor and director running his own business in New York. His business brought him to some of the most eclectic cities in the world - Chicago, Los Angeles, London, Shanghai - where he worked with global brands such as Apple, Google, Netflix, Nike, BMW, Budweiser, and Coke. These experiences provided him with a global perspective and large international network. More importantly, his business allowed him to develop and refine skills that translate directly to real estate - creative expression, problem solving and dedication to outstanding client services. And his hard work paid off as these global brands continued to work with Patrick for his ability to consistently deliver time and time again.

    So after a long successful career in film and looking for a new challenge, he decided to take his experience, background and love of all things "New York" and apply it to a career in real estate; first at Corcoran and now at Compass. No stranger to high-pressure situations involving big budgets, tight deadlines and larger than life personalities, Patrick has successfully applied his experience and expertise to serve his clients' needs in buying and selling real estate all around New York City, particularly in Brownstone Brooklyn. Knowing every client is different, has specific needs and is important, he always makes sure to fully understand what those needs are and works tirelessly to meet them, often exceeding them with record breaking sales and smooth transactions.

    As a lifelong New Yorker, Patrick has an insider's view of and connection to the city, especially Brooklyn. Need to know where to get the best children's hair cut? The latest art exhibit you should see? A place to buy mid-century furniture? The best BBQ? A great personal trainer, baby sitter and even mechanic? If he doesn't know the answer straight away, his network will know. His resourcefulness and commitment to a "real estate experience" are truly one of his key differentiators and are leveraged for all his clients.

    Currently, Patrick lives in Boerum Hill with his wife who works in fashion and their two children. When not at Open Houses, you can find him on his bike riding laps in Prospect Park, spending time with his family and friends, volunteering, taking photos, playing squash, enjoying art, or even working on his motorcycle at his garage in Gowanus.
