After more than 10 years of dedicated service at Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, Patty Brunn has turned her passion for real estate into a successful new career. As a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, Patty now works with residential buyers and sellers across Suffolk, Nassau, and Queens, helping clients sell their homes for top dollar or find their new dream homes.
CMM clients remember Patty as a knowledgeable, service-oriented paralegal. She joined CMM in 2008 as one of the firm’s first hires, starting in the litigation department and eventually working with the firm’s real estate team, where she found her passion. “Communicating with clients regularly and guiding them through the real estate process was always one of my pleasures,” Patty says. “I enjoy helping people, so getting them to the finish line as stress-free as possible always brought me joy.”
Patty spent several years in CMM’s Bridgehampton office, helping to build our presence and reputation on the East End. While working full-time, she studied for and received her Real Estate Salesperson license in January 2019, pursuing real estate on the side, but staying focused on her work at CMM.
While COVID-19 has caused unprecedented economic disruption and challenges, Patty – true to her nature – decided to view the pandemic as an opportunity. With the Long Island residential real estate market rapidly heating up as people look to relocate, Patty decided to focus on her real estate career full-time. She’s now affiliated with Nappa Realty in Massapequa, where she uses the customer service skills she honed at CMM to help her real estate clients maximize the value of their investments and start new chapters in their lives.
“Patty has always been a tremendously hard worker, a good listener, and client-oriented – all required traits for a successful real estate salesperson,” said CMM Managing Partner Joe Campolo. “My own family has already used Patty to sell a home and she did an amazing job. We miss her at the firm, but are extraordinarily proud of her, and will happily recommend her to our network.”
