Patty Couto knows what it’s like to arrive a new city and need a place to live. As the child of business executives, she moved between Asia, Mexico, Brazil, Texas and Northern Virginia before attending The College of William & Mary and settling back here in 2011.
That well-traveled upbringing gives her a keen ability to empathize with both buyers and sellers who are transitioning from one place to another—and to advise them on what they should be thinking about as they prepare for the move. Fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, she’s comfortable working with clients who come from various backgrounds.
Patty lives in Rosslyn, Arlington’s fast-growing urban enclave just across the river from downtown DC. She keeps a close watch on new condo development around the region as a member of her building’s community development committee, and from that perspective, she’s uniquely positioned to help her clients buy and sell condominium properties in addition to single- homes.
Patty joined Compass in 2018 after four successful years on a top-producing team in Northern Virginia. Prior to real estate, she worked in the finance department of Revolution, a DC-based venture-capital in downtown Washington.

Patty was more than I could ask for in assisting me to find a home in the Arlington area. She was engaged and very responsive throughout the many months that I worked with her. Her patience with my pickiness was truely appreciated and I will never be able to thank her enough for sticking by me and finding the perfect house! Thank you Patty!
Patty is an amazing realtor -- highly recommend if you are in need of a realtor in DC / VA! We had a tight timeline to sell our condo and she helped to get it photographed, staged, and listed quickly. Once it was listed, she was able to help us get it under just a few days -and for full asking price! She knows the market incredibly well and is strategic negotiating through the whole selling process.
From before I even met Patty, she sent a plethora of detailed and useful information about numerous properties. While touring the locations, she was extremely knowledgeable about the properties themselves as well as the surrounding neighborhoods. Patty is an awesome realtor and I would recommend her to anyone who needs help getting around the crazy property scene in and around D.C.
Patty was great. Very responsive, knowledgable, and honest. Closing wasn't easy but she really went above and beyond to make it happen. Trust her in this fast paced and competitive market.
I can't say enough about Patty! My mom and I were coming from out of state to look for a condo in Arlington area. We were in somewhat of a time crunch, in which we only had one weekend to find a place. Patty was up for the challenge! Prior to arriving into town, Patty set up at least 15+ listings for my mom and I to look at. She dedicated her whole weekend to making sure we found something we really liked. Not only is Patty personable, easy to work with, and knowledgeable, she truly loves what she does! I feel so lucky to have found her because I know if I didn't, I might still be house hunting. If you are ever looking for property in the Arlington area, I 100% recommend Patty!
Patty was very helpful throughout the whole process of searching buying and negotiating. She even created a personal portal for me with all the choices of living spaces that fit my criteria. Whenever I saw a place that looked nice, she was more than willing to meet with me any day of the week with flexible hours. Could not recommend her enough. Thank you so much Patty!
