Patricia Kennedy began her real estate career in Beverly Hills working with industry icons Harleigh Sandler and Jon Douglas over twenty-five years ago. At that time, she was working both as an actress and part-time real estate sales agent. Her passion for real estate quickly gained her fulltime commitment. She focused on properties in Beverly Hills and Bel Air, where she has brokered and owned several significant estates since the late 80’s. This has provided her with knowledge and expertise on the properties and these communities that is truly second to none. She is well versed in the area’s amazing history, property values, the people who live there, and the residential concerns that have confronted the residents over the past years. Her in-depth knowledge of these market places is an invaluable resource to her clients.
Two years ago Patricia decided to resume her real estate career. She has recently affiliated with Westside Estate Agency (WEA) co-founded by legendary luxury brokers Kurt Rappaport and Stephen Shapiro. WEA is a highly respected boutique brokerage, known for their unsurpassed level of service, and for representing high net worth clients and mega million dollar properties.
Patricia has also enjoyed a long and formidable career in philanthropy with the Joffrey Ballet. Known as “The First Lady of the Joffrey Ballet” she was instrumental in the groundbreaking production of the first full-evening rock ballet, Billboards with music by Prince. Through her worldwide connections and years of working in philanthropy and the performing arts, Patricia offers her clients unique access and opportunities to connect and with scions of business and society, including Entertainment and Music Industry icons, Fortune 500 Company officers, Dignitaries and Heads of State.
Patricia is a master negotiator and brilliant at closing complex transactions. She has a natural gift when it comes to bringing people, properties and ideas together. Her friend, Buzz Aldrin was complimentary of Patricia’s people skills which he described with a smile: “He told me once that if I had gone to the moon, I would have found life since I could talk to rocks.” She notes: “I think when you’ve raised money for over 30 years for causes you are passionate about, people respect your work and you earn their trust, and that’s essential in real estate too.”
Patricia continues to remain very involved with her non-profit work. Patricia currently serves as a Vice Chair for the Ellis Island Honors Society. In 2013 she received the prestigious Ellis Island Medal of Honor, one of our nation’s highest honors, for her tireless philanthropic support of the performing arts, and our injured military service members. This year the Ellis Island Medals of Honor Global Humanitarian Honoree is HSH Albert II Prince of Monaco. She is also the recipient of the highest honor in the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St. George, Dame Grand Cross. Lady Kennedy shares the title with only one other American woman, Lindy Boggs, our former Ambassador to the Holy See.
She is passionate about honoring the service of our military through her non-profit organization, Step Up 4 Vets. Step Up 4 Vets provides healing experiences for injured veterans, such as hosting them and their children at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and at Christmas performances of The Nutcracker by the Joffrey Ballet. Patricia served for many years on the board of directors of the foundation for the Joffrey Ballet. Her first philanthropic endeavor was raising funds for the original Robert Joffrey production of The Nutcracker in 1985.
Patricia is excited to be back in the business of real estate that she loves. Since returning to real estate she has topped $100,000,000 in property listings from Malibu to Miami, with an expert focus on Bel Air and Beverly Hills, and is proud of her partnership and affiliation with the prestigious brokerage of Westside Estates Agency.
Known for her integrity, discretion and her business acumen, she said, “I don’t even think about what I do as work. When you love what you do, every day is an excellent opportunity to live life fully. I’m not just focused on the monetary rewards, I deeply enjoy the humanitarian aspects of what I do. I love meeting people and connecting them to their dream home. The trust people place in you is the greatest reward.”
