TomTom Pace

Tom’s cheerful and friendly demeanor exudes a genuine concern and respect for others that create an instant connection with colleagues and clients alike; a connection that enables him to occasionally “move mountains” on behalf of his clients. This authentic affinity is evident in the care with which he “tunes into” their needs and whole-heartedly dedicates himself to their fulfillment.

Tom leverages his thirty-plus years of experience in the Charlottesville real estate market and the extensive knowledge that he has developed, first as VP to a local custom home builder and, since then, as a leading area agent & managing broker, to navigate transactions with extraordinary skill and insight that enable him to anticipate issues and devise effective solutions.

Trusted and admired by his peers in the Charlottesville real estate community, Tom has been an active leader at his firm, Long and Foster and within the local realtors association, CAAR, for many years. His passion for the smooth and effective implementation of technological advances that enhance the quality of service realtors can provide clients has driven him to serve as a valuable member of the CAAR technology committee for years.

A native-son, Tom is deeply connected to Charlottesville: the place, the community, and its people. Actively engaged as a friend, a neighbor, and a family man, Tom is a welcome presence wherever he turns his energies and attention. He maintains strong connections with his Virginia Tech alumni network; with his Glenmore community; with his children’s schools; and with golfing organizations. Through it all, he never loses sight of his aim to provide extraordinary service to others while acting with the utmost professionalism and integrity.

PattiPatti Rowe

Patti’s warm, engaging personality makes her a delight to work with and ensures that her clients are clients, and frequently friends, for life. Her firm grounding in customer service, previously as a station manager for the airlines and subsequently for nearly 25 years in the real estate industry, is evident in her easy going yet highly professional & effective manner that creates a seamless, efficient home buying/selling experience. Throughout the process, the knowledgeable guidance and emotional support she provides creates a sense of comfort and confidence for her clients. Underlying it all, is her strong sense of integrity that drives her to seek outcomes that are most beneficial to the interests of her clients and their life goals.

Based out of Long & Foster, Patti has been one of Charlotteville’s top producing agents for over 20 years. While she has extraordinary expertise in this premier golf and equestrian community, her knowledge extends well beyond its gates and encompasses the greater Charlottesville – Albemarle area.

Patti’s love for Charlottesville and her investment in the community is unwavering. Since moving to the area in the early ‘90’s, she has raised a family here and has been actively engaged in a variety of activities and commitments as a resident of Glenmore, as a Charlottesville community member and leader, and as an individual with recreational interests. While they have all been valuable experiences, she cherishes her current role as a Board Member of the Martha Jefferson Hospital and her previous involvement as Chair of the American Heart Association Ball, relishing the opportunity to have a wide-reaching impact on the welfare of the community and its residents. Her work with her clients is infused with that same passion to promote the well-being and happiness of others.

When not providing exceptional service to her clients, you can find Patti on the tennis courts, relaxing at her river house, or engaging in community service; always with a sincere interest and engagement in others and an appreciation for all that life has to offer.
