Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

About me.
 

Who I am.

How I work.

What I can do for you.

  

A Realtor for 22 years, I'm licensed in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.  After initially working in commercial property, I discovered that I much preferred the personal side of residential real estate and I devoted myself to full-time residential sales in 1989.  In addition to listing and selling residential real estate, I also manage the Patterson-Schwartz Newark Sales Center, with eighty agents and over $250 million in annual sales.

I'm proud to be a local New Castle boy, graduating from St. Peter's School, then Wilmington Friends School and then the University of Delaware where I obtained my BS in Business Administration.  A nearly-lifelong resident of New Castle, I live in the historic area with my wife and two daughters, who have grown up playing in Battery Park and walking on the library walls.  New Castle is a special place and I love living here.  I value the opportunity to help my neighbors sell their homes and enjoy introducing new residents to the wonderful experience of living in this great town.  My respect for the historic nature of New Castle's buildings and land is a fundamental personal value.  My experience with the Historic Area Commission is based on years of personal and professional dealings.

Becoming the resident expert on Old New Castle real estate is what happens when you live and work in the same neighborhood for so long.  I'm happy to lend my expertise not only to my friends and neighbors, but also to other real estate professionals, appraisers, and home inspectors who often call with questions about the unique aspects of individual properties within our town.  I've consistently captured over 60% of the market share in the historic area of New Castle by using the latest technology and delivering excellent customer service. 

I'm proud to have achieved:
  • Rookie of the Year ~ 1989
  • Lifetime Member of the New Castle County Board of Realtors Multimillion Dollar Club since 1993
  • Realty Alliance National Sales Award for the past 13 years
  • Broker of Record and Manager for the Patterson-Schwartz Newark Sales Center since 1997
  • New Castle County Board of Realtors Professional Standards Committee 2005-2008

In addition to real estate work, I've also spent a good amount of time volunteering for various great causes, including:

  • The New Castle Library - President since 2006
  • Junior Achievement - Advisor for 10 years
  • St. Peter the Apostle - past member, Pastoral Council
  • Knights of Columbus
  • Wilmington Friends School
  • MS150 Bike to the Bay - top 20 fundraiser/participant for 15 years

My goal is to provide my clients with the best real estate experience possible.  If I can be of help in your quest to buy or sell your home please call!
