Patrick Harvey was born in El Paso, TX. He graduated from the prestigious Deerfield Academy and then went on to the Florida Institute of Technology, where he received his B.S. in computer science and M.S. in applied mathematics.
Upon graduation, Patrick launched a consulting company providing computer-related support. This led into a role in the semiconductor business, where he worked for GTE Microcircuits and then Microtest. For a few years, Patrick worked as a commercial river guide, rafting the Colorado and Green Rivers through Utah and the Grand Canyon. In the off seasons, he sang with the Scottsdale Symphony Chorale and was an instructor at Arizona Mountaineering Club. It was during that time that Patrick also obtained his pilot’s license.
Patrick is an NLP instructor who attends many motivational and self-improvement events as a facilitator, due to his talents in negotiation, presentation, coaching, and neurolinguistic programming (NLP). He also hosts investment seminars to teach attendees to make better choices about the most important aspects of their lives, including business, investments, and relationships.
Patrick obtained his real estate license in 2004 and has built his practice around relationships. Anyone can help buyers and sellers with their real estate needs, but it takes focus and dedication to care about those clients and help them realize their objectives. Patrick is well versed in foreclosures, short sales, pre-foreclosure properties, and traditional real estate transactions. In 2013, he was named among the top 10 Realtors in Maricopa County for closing nearly 200 deals.
In addition to working with individuals on their real estate transactions, Patrick also is a talented commercial real estate investor who has access to numerous commercial investment ideas. As an investor himself, he understands the unique needs of those looking to purchase investment property and he is knowledgeable about 1031 exchanges and tenants in common.
In 2003, Patrick married Lisa, and together they are the parents of two children and a houseful of cats, dogs, and turtles. The family currently lives in Scottsdale.
Comments from past clients
“Patrick recently helped us with the sale of our Arizona rental portfolio. His analysis of the properties and their potential market value was expeditious and accurate. In fact, most of the properties sold at or close to his recommended listing price. In addition, his recommended procedure resulted in multiple offers on most of our more than 250 assets.
“The level of service and expertise Patrick provides is exceptional. After having dealt with hundreds of different brokers and agents in the past 15 years, he remains at the top of the list.”
— Andrew Swartz, CEO & Ron Lilley, Vice President, Swartz & Brough Inc. Real Estate Investments
“Patrick made buying a house fun! I was dreading the process of examining hundreds of West USA Realty options, spending hour upon hour looking at websites and driving to various locations. But Patrick streamlined the process, helped us define what we really wanted in a house, and then pointed us to the perfect place.
“After only two afternoons, we had found our new home! Throughout the process, Patrick was prompt, courteous, and professional. He knew when to talk and when to give us space.
“Even after the closing, he contacted us to make sure we were still happy with our decision. He was more concerned about our happiness than he was about making a sale. That is what really impressed me.
“I absolutely recommend Patrick to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for a great job in selling our home. Your professionalism, courtesy, knowledge, and most of all CALM, made this transaction a breeze. Your service throughout the sale proves why it never pays to sell your home yourself. With us having relocated some 800 miles away before the house sold, I do not know how we would have gotten it sold without you.
“You went above and beyond the call, arranging repairs (doing some yourself!), all the while giving us regular updates on the progress. When/if we ever move back to Arizona, we are calling you first!”
— Ron and Suzanne, Phoenix
“Patrick is absolutely wonderful. He knows Phoenix like the back of his hand. He’s very patient and friendly, and I loved hanging out with him! It wasn’t even just about him finding me a place. He’s become a good friend. He was like a godsend to me. Not only did his investor group buy my house, but he found me the perfect place.
“He’s not pushy; he’s a very positive person, and fun to be around. I would work with him over and over and over again.”
— Dawn, Scottsdale
“I have been successfully investing in real estate for several years, buying and selling both residential and commercial properties. I have had the opportunity to work with numerous real estate agents in the past on various projects. Patrick Harvey is head and shoulders above all the others that I have worked with. Patrick has a profound knowledge of the industry, and is a rock-solid performer with strategies that work. Patrick is a true professional who will get results.”
— Lliana, San Diego
“Patrick helped us with a very difficult short sell on our home. We had two loans, plus a pool loan, and he was able to negotiate with all three lenders to get a deal done. I was always able to reach him when I needed to, and he would call at regular intervals to give me updates. I feel he worked incredibly hard on my behalf, and I couldn’t have been happier. I highly recommend him.”
— Lianne, Sun City
“I have known and used Patrick for several real estate deals and have always found him to be the consummate professional in every aspect of the transaction. His knowledge and experience are great assets to have on your side of the table.”
— Mike, Phoenix
“Mr. Harvey has managed the sale of more than three dozen Phoenix-area rental properties for real estate investment entities in the last two years and a substantial number of acquisitions as well. Patrick has also helped manage a number of profitable resales of properties acquired specifically for that purpose. He has been a part of our strategy team, helping us source key vendors in the area.
“Patrick has many skill sets, not the least of which is his ability to look at each transaction from the perspective of the investor. He’s very risk averse when it comes to recommending strategies for use of our capital.”
— Andrew, Midland, TX
“My wife and I worked with Patrick to find a new home in North Phoenix and in renting our existing house. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in our search — being that perfect mix of not too aggressive but also offering a nice selection of homes to consider. Our purchase went off without a hitch, and we were very happy with the home and price we got. We would definitely use Patrick again.”
— David, Phoenix
“Patrick helped me with the sale of my home and helped my son purchase a home. In both cases, he worked diligently to complete each transaction with as much benefit as possible to each of us, respectively. He was responsive to our questions and needs and advised us well when issues arose.”
— Rick, Scottsdale
“We have to thank Patrick for going above and beyond to help us purchase the home we were renting for more than two years. He guided us through and helped us with all the powers that be so we could finally become proud homeowners! Thank you, Patrick; we certainly will recommend you to our friends and family for future realty needs.”
