Shaping the Urban Landscape with Patrick Stelmach E12

Patrick’s passion for international cultures and his love of commercial real estate makes him the perfect person to look to craft Sacramento’s urban landscape.

What is the lifeblood of your business or building? Patrick listens for the heartbeat that pulses through your organization to learn what makes you thrive, or makes your heart pressure rise. His clients achieve success with their real estate, because of my relentless persistence and follow through. Whether it’s on the mountain or at the negotiating table, Patrick rises to any challenge.

He is energized by the entrepreneur’s spirit, the aspiration to accomplish great things. Your building can empower you, or hinder you, in that journey. Patrick guides clients to act on the right opportunity, with a rich understanding of the urban landscape and foresight of market dynamics.

As a student of cities and a connector in the community, Patrick admires Sacramento’s many textures and flavors. Historic roots and skyward developments are creating a renewed sense of place in the Grid and beyond. Patrick’s favorite features of the City of Trees are the bike trails, the artists, and the craftsmanship of coffee, beer and cuisine.
