Troy Patterson is a real estate agent with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. He came to Washington in 1987, when he was stationed in the U.S. Coast Guard. He graduated from the University of North Carolina and American University, which led to extensive work fundraising in the nonprofit sector. He raised funds for Studio Theatre, Georgetown University, The National Building Museum and The National Association of Home Builders. Troy continues this work through his support of such organizations as The Victory Fund, The Human Rights Campaign, Step Afrika!, The Young Playwrights Theatre and the United Methodist Church. His diverse career in non-profit fundraising and management led to a love of real estate, which he has been successfully practicing for the last 14 years.
