Pat has been in real estate since 1981 and has been licensed in both Missouri and California. In California, she worked for Century 21 for 15 years and in 1989 won the coveted award of Centurion and was presented the statue at the Dallas National Convention that year. While in California, Pat was active in various equine activities and made the 100 mile, 5 day ride from Vista, CA to Palomar Mountain several times. She also carried the flag in the honor color guard for the end of the Caballero Mission Ride into Mission San Luis Rey in 1975 on a mule.
Prior to real estate, Pat worked in the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. after college in 1960. She worked as a Legislative Assistant and Executive Assistant to Members. She wrote an interview column in the Capitol Hill publication “Roll Call” for a time and that publication is still in circulation today. Pat has been active in the cattle business since 1976 when she and her husband purchased their first farm in Salem, MO. She worked the buyer window in the sale barn there for eight years and as a representative for National Farmer’s Organization, operated her own licensed scale under the Department of Agriculture and purchased cattle directly from the farm and shipped to feed lots.
Pat and her husband, Bud still operate a 145 acre small cow/calf operation in Elk Creek, Missouri in Texas County. She is knowledgeable about what is needed to ranch in the Ozarks and this knowledge assists her customers in locating or selling their rural properties.
She has recently been involved in marketing timber property in our market. Cattle, horses, farming, and a genuine enjoyment of people have kept Pat active in the real estate industry for over 30 years and she would be happy to work with you.
