About Us

Patrick Blood » Founder, Principal Broker VA & WV
Patrick bio image

Raised in Dublin Ireland, in 2003 Patrick turned down a job promotion, bought a one way airline ticket and left Ireland for America over a twelve day period. Using Washington DC as a base Patrick travelled around the United States before falling in to a summer job as a caddy at a country club. While there, Patrick met some very influential people, one of whom was the owner of a luxury property management company. This is how he found a passion for an industry he didn’t know existed.

He worked for some of the largest property management companies in the country while working his way up within the industry. He eventually moved to Charles Town WV where the daily commute back and forth to D.C. got tiresome. He saw a gap in the local market in W.V and so he started Blackwell Property Management.
