Patrick Finnick
Founder of RE/MAX Center in 1994
Prior to entering the real estate industry in 1988, Patrick worked for a local manufacturing company, Peachtree Windows & Doors.  At Peachtree Windows & Doors, he was often assigned to design new processes to streamline workflow.  The skills learned at Peachtree Windows & Doors were carried over to real estate.  It is extremely important to Patrick that service commitments are established to assure the company exceeds its commitment to customers and clients. 
In the early years of Patrick's real estate career, he was recognized by the companies he was associated with for numerus outstanding achievement awards.  Coldwell Banker awarded Patrick the rookie of the year award in 1990.  At Metro Brokers in 1992, Pat was consistently one of the top performers.  In 1993, Patrick was recruited to manage Covenant Real Estate.  Covenant Real Estate had won a contract to oversee the sales and management of HUD properties throughout Georgia.  From startup to success, Patrick hired and trained new sales associates.  Patrick developed all of the sales processing for the company to meet and exceed HUD and the State of Georgia regulations.
In 1994, Patrick purchased a RE/MAX Franchise along with his business partner, Teresa Bueno.  In the early years of RE/MAX Center, the company became known for its fulltime professional REALTORs.  The company has won several awards for sales and customer services.  Patrick is constantly asked about his approach to running a successful real estate office.  His answer? It really comes down to one simple mind set;  Buyers and Sellers deserve the best possible advice.  Real Estate is generally a person's single largest investment and having a fulltime professional guide a consumer through the process is invaluable.  Patrick's commitment is for REMAX Center to be known as a unique place where Fulltime Professional REALTORs thrive.
