"Patricia's professionalism, patience, and expertise make her the best real estate agent our family has ever worked with. Buying a home in a competitive market like DC is stressful, from ensuring you find the right home and make the right offers, to navigating between neighborhoods and financing options. Patricia steered us through these challenges while making us confident in our decision. After just a few weeks working with her, we bought a home we love in a neighborhood we love. If you're looking for the right partner in your journey to a DC area home - she's it!" - James Long.
"Patti did a great job for us! We came to DC/VA area from Hawaii and she started sending us ideas before we even arrived. She was flexible, knowledgeable and never pushy! But she was extremely responsive and quick to act. She always went above and beyond. She was instrumental in getting us the most amazing house in Alexandria. I will recommend her to everyone I know! "- Christine T Altendorf
"Recently Patti helped us find a gem of a home in Old Town. From start to finish, Patti listened to our needs and ensured we were informed and felt comfortable throughout the home buying experience. She had great rapport with the listing agent, sellers, and kept our interest in the forefront. We highly recommend Patti and will definitely use her in any future home purchase needs." - Jenna Shell
"Patricia is truly an Old Town expert. She really listened and had good understanding of our priorities, so all listings she suggested met our criteria. She is extremely organized and professional, so we were able to see homes quickly and efficiently when we saw several in one meeting. I especially appreciated her advice and quick follow-up during negotiation, which helped us get our top pick on terms we feel good about. We are excited to move in to our new home next week!" - Melinda McGarvey
"Patricia was patient, professional, and very in tune with what I was searching for in a home. She took time to answer all my questions, gave me useful tips, and considered my budget above all else. She fought for my rights as a buyer, which I truly appreciated. She is also, very simply, a great person and someone I now count among my friends. She helped me find a home that met all my needs." - Traci Goodwin.
"Working with Patricia Petkosek as our family’s realtor was excellent. We are a military family that relocated from Germany to the Alexandria, VA area. Patricia’s solid knowledge of the area, combined with her ability to understand what we wanted in a new home allowed us to find the perfect home. She is a true professional and I always assessed she had our best interest at heart. Highly recommend." - Alex Schneider.
Patricia provides top notch service to her clients and values integrity above all else. Born and raised on the Big Island, Hawaii, but she has been moving around the world her entire adult life. Being a spouse of a retired Army Officer, Patricia has moved over 16 times to far flung parts of the world, including London, Guam, Germany and many different states. With each move, assimilating into the culture has been a true learning experience. With those moves came opportunities to invest in real estate and learn from each of those transactions. She brings expertise to her clients with an understanding of the particular challenges which can occur during military moves for both buyers and sellers.
After graduating from the University of Memphis, Patricia worked for many years as a hotel executive in Hawaii, Atlanta and the Grand Tetons. During her time in Germany and at Fort Drum, NY, she worked as a Protocol Specialist. Being a military spouse, she volunteered extensively for Family Readiness Groups (FRGs), scholarship committees, coordinating events and advocating for military families. These experiences honed her skills of critical thinking, diplomacy and being able to handle stressful situations.
Patricia moved to Northern Virginia in 2010 and purchased a home in the Fort Hunt neighborhood. As a long time resident in Northern Virginia, she has learned the intricacies of the pocket neighborhoods such as Fort Hunt, Old Town, Del Ray, Burke and more. In 2016, her daughter went off to college and that was the perfect time for Patricia and her husband John to rightsize and move into Old Town. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the beauty and history of Old Town while walking her dog Quincy, traveling, hiking, day-trips into DC and volunteering at the Christ House & with the National Military Family Association.
