Having grown up with a mother in real estate, Brittany Patterson’s decision to go into the industry may have been written in the stars. A passionate lover of Alexandria, Patterson sells what she loves and brings people home to the city that she adores, giving her a level of success that could only come from deeply rooted passion.
As senior vice president of the Patterson Group, Patterson is a TTR/Sotheby’s International Realty broker whose numbers reflect her talent, dedication and drive. “In 2021, we reached a sales volume of $161,101 million, or 146 houses,” says Patterson. “We are the #1 Team in Alexandria, the #1 Small Team in Virginia and #1 in New Home Sales in Alexandria.”
As proud as she is of the accomplishments she and her team made professionally, Patterson is most proud of the effect she’s had in bringing so many new homeowners to the area. As she and her team support numerous local organizations, Patterson dedicates free time to serving on the boards of the Alexandria Seaport Foundation and Inova Health Foundation in addition to being an ambassador for Spring2Action as well as the Alexandria Chamber’s Young Leaders Network Chair.
“I hope I impact the Alexandria community by inviting, involving and connecting more great people to this great place—and by telling its story and showing its value where and when I can,” she says. “I also try to make a difference in the community by supporting charitable groups and the people who support it.”
She is also an advocate of women’s heart health. “I have traditionally thought heart disease was more likely to effect men,” she says. “However, my research has told me that women are more likely to die from heart disease. They also experience more unique symptoms. Heart disease has also been linked to pregnancy-related complications. As women, we need to bring more attention to these facts to ensure we protect our tribe!”
