Patrick grew up in a military family and lived in several states and foreign countries. He graduated from Emporia State University, Emporia, KS with a BSB degree and subsequently served as an officer in the U. S. Navy. His real estate career began in Denver in the 1970’s, where he was involved in banking, commercial leasing and property management, both in executive and sales capacities.
In the late 80’s, he was sales manager for a New Mexico home builder, assisting many people with financing and construction of their new homes. Mortgage financing became a passion for the next several years as he continued his focus of helping consumers purchase homes. New construction financing was a specialty, although he originated hundreds of mortgage loans, of various types, in New Mexico and later for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in Durango. He moved to the Durango area in 1996 from Santa Fe. He is single and has 2 sons, who live with their families in the Denver area.
More recently, he developed a small, luxury subdivision north of Durango and currently serves as an owner, President of the homeowner’s association and head of architectural control.
