Helping people has always been my passion.

It runs in my blood. My father had a painting business, and I would often accompany him to explore the houses he painted. I was always fascinated by the unique styles and tastes that different homes have. That fascination has never left me, even as I grew up and am now pursuing a career in real estate. Now, as an adult, I enjoy helping people find their dream homes, buy properties that fit their lifestyle, and sell homes that no longer serve their needs.

I come from a long line of people who have served Edenton with integrity, and I’m proud to carry on that tradition. When I’m not working with Rene Sawyer Realty, I’m alongside my father as the assistant coach for the John A. Holmes varsity baseball team. Coaching is another way I get to help people, and it’s a great way to give back to the community that has given me so much.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Rene sawyer reality and especially Patrick Downum for making this home buying experience very easy and a dream come true. Very knowledgeable, prompt and professional! I highly recommend him for all your home buying needs!

I want to raise my own family in the same town where my partner and I grew up.

I want to help others build a life in this incredible community, just as my family has done for generations. Edenton is such a special place, and I want to do my part to make it even better. Whether it’s through my work in real estate or on the sidelines of a high school baseball game, I’m always looking for ways to help others.

I was recommended Patrick by a friend. Rene and Patrick immediately responded found the good in our home, and we came up with a fair price. They were always considerate, professional, and very knowledgeable. My husband and I trusted them with every aspect of our house sale. I would recommend them as expert and friendly to anyone interested in buying or selling in Edenton.
