Richelle Patton is an accomplished multifamily developer and business owner, who is committed to lending her expertise in real estate development and planning as a consultant, speaker, mentor and advisor to everyone from young professionals to government and community leaders across the country.
Patton has been involved with the development or preservation of more than 22,000 rental affordable housing units over past 25 years. She is currently involved with the development and preservation of more than 6,000 units on 50 projects totaling $415 million in development costs as an owner or consultant.
With a gift of being able to identify the needs of people, business and communities, Patton is skilled at coming up with solutions. She is creative not only in business deals while advising on real estate financing and strategies, but 13 years ago realized there was a shortage of females at the top of companies and mentoring each other in a male-dominated field. While fostering a very successful and highly-demanding career, raising her two sons and caring for her mother, Richelle founded Women’s Affordable Housing Network 13 years ago to give women a platform to network and support each other in their careers. This network has grown to over 450 women in the Atlanta area.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Patton as one of the 2019 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect Media’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
