Welcome to The Patterson Group

One of the most trusted and admired real estate teams in the area!

Phyllis Patterson Group Team

Phyllis Patterson started working in real estate over thirty years ago, specializing first in the Old Town Alexandria market and gradually expanding sales throughout Alexandria. When her oldest daughter, Brittany, partnered with her in 2009, they became The Patterson Group. In 2012, Tracy Dunn joined the team as an agent, and Maria Bowman came on as Client Coordinator the next year. Maria has since earned her real estate license and transitioned into an agent role. Also serving the team as an agent is Joanne Sawczuk, who started in 2014. Susie Scott joined to oversee marketing for the group in 2016. Last but certainly not least, Melissa Lepore, licensed in Virginia, came on midway through 2017 to coordinate contracts while continuing to work with buyers and sellers in the area.

As all of The Patterson Group’s members have lived in Alexandria for many years, they have close ties to the community and demonstrate this through their substantial knowledge and service. They are active participants in community recreation, service, and growth, and are heavily involved in organizations ranging from The Campagna Center to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate to various public and private schools and athletic programs throughout the area.
