Introducing Summer Patterson, COO and Co-owner of Patterson & Co.
Many of you know her as a kind and hardworking agent here at Patterson & Co., but some of you may not know her story. Summer has been in the industry for two years and she is the co-owner and COO of our company. Keep reading to learn more about this local West Virginia girl who loves all things home!
Summer was born and raised in Monroe County and now resides in Lewisburg, WV with her mini golden-doodle, Houston. She attended Greenbrier East High School where she was very involved in FFA, 4-H, student government, and more. After high school, she attended Liberty University and West Virginia University where she studied Psychology. Summer has also been very involved in the livestock industry since she was eight years old and continues to be involved with cattle on their family farm.
One of Summer's favorite hobbies is traveling. She has been to 20 out of 50 states! Other continents and more specifically, Italy, is definitely on her bucket list. Her all-time favorite place to visit is Hilton Head Island in South Carolina where her family has been visiting each summer since she was an infant. Although she loves to travel, there is no place like home for this local girl.
Summer is an amazing cook and says that if she wasn't selling homes, she would love to be a chef! One of her favorite things to do is have friends over for dinner parties where she gets to try out new recipes. We are lucky enough to be able to taste test some of her creations from time to time in the office!
Summer loves all things Christmas. Her old soul comes out during the holidays because she loves anything vintage - especially ornaments and decorations.
Summer hopes her career in real estate will make an impact on her community. Growing up she had a lot of mentors to look up to which molded her into the person she is today. Summer says, “I want to be a mentor for the children in our community and show them that it is possible to fulfill all of your dreams as long as you put in the work.”
If you haven't had a chance to meet Summer yet, we hope you will take the opportunity to do so soon! She is such a valuable member of our team, and we are so lucky to have her as a part of Patterson & Co.
We hope you enjoyed getting to know Summer better!
