An Executive Vice President at Hanley Investment Group, Pat Kent is a retail investment properties specialist with three decades of experience and an extensive track record consisting of $1 billion in investment property sales. In 2016, Pat earned Hanley Investment Group’s Top Producer Award alongside his team (Corey Olson and Dylan Mallory). But even more important to Pat than the numbers he’s achieved are the relationships he’s made, and the loyalty he’s earned from his valued clientele.
Due to his previous experience as a mortgage banker, Pat has extensive knowledge of the capital markets and economic drivers that shape investment markets and property values. This provides Pat with key insights that make him uniquely qualified to advise his clients at a high level so they can achieve their investment goals. Pat’s expertise, loyal clientele, and innovative marketing techniques ensure that all of his property listings receive targeted exposure so that maximum proceeds and return on investment are achieved.
Pat is nothing if not persistent. At 22, after graduating from Fort Lewis College in Colorado, he earned his first position in real estate finance by showing up on three consecutive days to convince the owner to hire him. He went on to spend 10 years in real estate finance prior to making the transition to investment sales in 1999. Today, Pat demonstrates that same spirit of perseverance for his clients with every transaction.
Pat resides in Irvine with his wife and two children, and has been a soccer coach for the past four years. He spends his weekends enjoying tennis, biking, hiking, and spending quality time with his family. Pat is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and is a licensed California Real Estate Broker.
