Patrick was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, Illinois; at a time when the Chicago Bears were superbowl champions and the Chicago Bulls were a dynasty. He attended St. Laurence High School in Burbank, Illinois and Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois; where he studied accounting and business administration as an undergraduate and graduate student.
After graduate school, Patrick worked for a large nonprofit and then a small public accounting firm, and moved from the south suburbs of Chicago to downtown Chicago. Along the way, he developed a strong interest in residential real estate investment and sales; and before long found himself leaving the world of accounting behind and jumping feet-first into the world of real estate.
Patrick's career in residential real estate began with Rubloff Residential Properties, a large local brokerage in downtown Chicago. In Rubloff, he found the mentorship that quickly turned his passion into production and profits. Patrick had found his calling. Almost overnight, he became one of Chicago's elite REALTORS® and would remain as such until he and Michelle decided to leave Illinois.
Soon after Patrick and Michelle decided to make their move to the Sunshine State, Patrick made the decision to obtain his Florida real estate broker's license and open his own residential real estate brokerage. Beedie Realty was born, and in very little time has become one of the area's best real estate brokerages; with Patrick becoming one of Sarasota-Manatee's top-rated REALTORS®.
Michelle grew up in the suburbs of Buffalo, New York; at a time when Jim Kelly led the Buffalo Bills to four straight Super Bowls and Dominik Hašek led the Buffalo Sabres to the Stanley Cup finals. She attended Frontier Central High School in Hamburg, New York and the University at Buffalo in Amherst, New York; where she earned her Bachelor of Arts, with a major in communication and a minor in psychology.
Not too long after turning the page on college, Michelle chose to start a new chapter in her book of life by moving to downtown Chicago. It was there that she met Patrick, and it was there that she embarked on what would prove to be a highly successful career in luxury retail management with an innovative women's fashion brand that operates a collective of specialty boutiques throughout North America.
A short time after relocating to Florida, with Beedie Realty newly opened and already growing at a rate too rapid for Patrick to keep pace with on his own, Michelle made the decision to obtain her Florida real estate agent's license and join Patrick at Beedie Realty. Drawing on her real estate knowledge gained through many years of observing Patrick enabled Michelle to make an immediate impact.
Since becoming a REALTOR® and joining Beedie Realty, Michelle has developed into one of Sarasota-Manatee's best buyer's agents. She specializes in working with relocation buyers, vacation home buyers, and first-time buyers. Michelle dedicates a tremendous amount of time and effort to getting to know her clients, and derives great joy from getting to turn their real estate dreams into reality.
