While working at Foxtons, Patrick negotiated rare London property in highly sought after areas such as Notting Hill, Chelsea, Fulham and Kensington. Upon returning to Australia he returned to the family company, Hayden Real Estate, to join the third generation agency, the region’s leading property company and became one of the Surf Coast’s most successful and trusted property advisors.
Patrick ambition for excellence then took him to the fast paced world of Dubai where he was tasked with setting up Hayden Real Estate’s first international office. Working with different cultures and nationalities on a daily basis helped Patrick gain further international experience. Patrick focused mostly on higher end properties in Palm Jumeirah and large scale developments across Dubai, setting many sales records along the way.
