Sujata Patel

Transaction Director

I was always active as a kid…not just physically though. I supplemented tennis with violin and piano lessons, policy debate, rotary club, volunteer work to save the rain forests, baking, etc.

I was pretty involved in my school and community, but learned early that I needed time for friends, family, and travel which kept me happy, healthy, and grounded.

I enjoy the organized chaos that was my schedule growing up.  Now as a transaction director, I thrive off of balancing the lists of items that come with each client. I want to see a deal through to closing and am happy to take care of any obstacles that might pop up. The more challenges that come my way, the more I learn and the more efficient I become. Each time is an opportunity to provide the best service I can to all of our clients. I take pride in putting out high quality work product in a timely fashion, but also take a minute to listen to any number of entertaining stories my coworkers have to tell.  They have some good ones.
