Patti received her B.S. degree from the University of Northern Colorado and her J.D. degree from Southwestern University School of Law. She practiced law for nearly 20 years in Southern California before moving with her family to Chandler in 2003. Much of her legal career focused on mortgage lending and residential and commercial real estate. As a life-long real estate junkie, acquiring her real estate license was a natural career step for her after moving to Arizona. Patti spends much of her time traveling the Southeast Valley while introducing clients to their new homes, driving her children to various activities, or exploring properties, neighborhoods and markets out of just plain curiosity. Patti also likes to spend time with her family, read murder mysteries and work in her garden. Her proudest moment was earning her 2nd Degree Black Belt in karate.
