Patrice is a true “Georgia Peach” – born and raised in Atlanta. She exudes old fashioned Southern charm, and has the innate ability to make people feel at home. Her years of experience in Custom Homebuilding and Interior Decorating made her decision to become a REALTOR a perfect fit. With 17 years of experience in the Atlanta Real Estate market, she maintains “Top Producer” status in the industry.
In her own words:
Every person has a unique story, and I am inspired by each one I hear. That’s the reason I love meeting new people. I also love houses. No two are the same, and the countless combinations of color, size, style, and design are endlessly fascinating. The most thrilling part of Real Estate is sweetening each client’s story through the sale and/or purchase of a home. I am a runner, a beach freak, a chocoholic, and a frequent participant in “retail therapy”. But my favorite hobby is spending time with my grandchildren. The love of my life is Derryck. He is my personal Chef, global Tour Guide, my one-man Fan Club, and the best business partner I could ever find. For us, “average” is an insult. We love turning friends into clients and clients into friends, providing white-glove service throughout every Real Estate transaction
Patrice is the heart and soul of our business, but her days of being a one-woman-show are far in the past. So in addition to the array of excellent vendors who serve our clients, Patrice relies on a couple of folks who work very closely with her.
In 2016 Patrice finally persuaded her husband, Derryck, to join her growing Real Estate business. As an entrepreneur in both non-profit and Business arenas, a Marriage and Family Counselor, Banker, Pastor, Executive Coach, and Organizational Consultant, his goal has always been for people to be better off when they parted than when they met. Derryck works with the land-focused clients, handles the back-office tasks, and makes sure that items on Patrice's ongoing honey-do list get checked off quickly.
Dubbed frequently as the McLuhan Group's "miracle worker", Melissa coordinates all transactions and customer service processes. She loves details, is a perfectionist when it comes to accuracy and quality control, and keeps Patrice and Derryck on track. Melissa is also a licensed Real Estate agent with in-depth experience in residential, commercial, land acquisition, and investment transactions.
