Pat Sopp >> ABR, CDPE, CCREC, LMS, Associate Broker +

Accredited Buyer’s Representative, Certified Distressed Property Expert, Consumer-Certified Real Estate Consultant, Loss Mitigation Specialist

Pat Sopp has an established career in the South Metro Atlanta real estate market for over 30 years of multi-million dollar sales production.  Pat has dealt with extraordinary interest rates in the early 1980’s in excess of 15% to 17% and successfully guided buyers through those obstacles in our local neighborhoods.

Now that the economy has reversed the challenge of homeownership, Pat has expanded her professional outreach to support the communication between homeowners and financial institutions to assist in saving home values, neighborhood stability and coordinating agreements for short sales to avoid further credit deterioration and devaluations of foreclosed homes.

Pat’s expertise in assessments of REO properties and experience in coordinating local contractors, inspectors and appraisers is a value added benefit through her ownership of a Fayette County building company for 15 years.  Investors benefit through her knowledge of the original community development requirements and her personal representation of many local Southside building companies through the years.

Pat’s sales credentials include the following awards and achievements:
  • RE/MAX International Hall of Fame Award as awarded Worldwide
  • Fayette County Board of Realtors SILVER PHOENIX Award for 25 continuous years of multi-million dollar sales production
