Rooted in Service
Patterson-Schwartz may stand out as one of the few locally owned companies in an industry dominated in recent days by big brands and franchises, but our connection to the community and its people is hardly a novelty. Opening in 1961 in a semi-detached Wilmington home with just 10 associates, Patterson-Schwartz now has 10 offices across the state and into Maryland, and is home to over 500 real estate professionals and staff.
We know this market. We are this market. We came from this market so there isn’t much locally that escapes our notice.Charlie Schwartz, II, son of founder Charlie Schwartz, Sr.

And at the root of all our success is the hard work of our family of sales associates and staff who dedicate themselves to providing exceptional service every day.
It’s because of this proud history and service legacy that Patterson-Schwartz is able to embrace an ever-evolving real estate landscape and remain a leader in our market.
