Patrick O. Smith, DSW, B.Soc.Sci. CCM
Patrick offers over 20 years of Real Estate experience which comes from both a broad professional spectrum as well as a very personal “passion for property”. During a fifteen year career working in various forms of Social Work, Patrick’s real estate hobby evolved into much more than just a creative outlet. It became lucrative. A growing understanding of property acquisition and resale, restoration and capital growth, property management and the many variables which pertain to real estate as an investment all came together as the catalyst for a career change. Ultimately, formal Real Estate licensing 17 years ago at the provincial level and then becoming member of the Real Estate Board in Ottawa, Canada (OREB) bring us to the current: The birth of the OLH team in Ottawa and the PVL team in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Patrick continues to own a small variety of working and recreational properties in Canada, the United States and Mexico. Registered with Ontario New Home Warranty as a Builder, he has also developed property and builds from the “ground up”. With an added educational background in Corporate Communications and Public Relations, he ensures your marketing needs take a strategic place in the plan. As a result our team offers a competitive edge in the listing process. VLH client sales stand out against the crowd, Patrick brings diverse experience, creativity, a rich understanding of the real estate industry along with the key ingredient: respect for each client as an individual.
