About Me About Me

Patty Anker is a multiple award-winning realtor and Team Leader of The A Team at Julia B. Fee Sotheby's International Realty in Irvington NY. Back when Patty was a courage coach, helping clients face their fears of everything from public speaking to driving to swimming, she thought she knew all about facing fears. Until she moved from her house of 13 years. "Moving was exciting...and scary!" she says. "It didn't matter that I was only going 10 miles from Hastings-on-Hudson to Pleasantville, essentially crossing I-287. It was a big deal." 

Patty became a realtor to guide others through the decathlon of financial, emotional and logistical real estate obstacles in any residential transaction. Along the way, many discover the transformative power of greeting a big life change with courage and joy. "It isn't easy to let go of the past, and go toward an unknown. The fear of making a wrong high-stakes decision can be paralyzing. I am here to empower clients to move forward with confidence." 

In 5 years Patty has gone from earning Howard Hanna Rand Realty's Westchester County Rookie of the Year Award, to being named to Westchester Magazine Top Real Estate Agents 2023, with top producer awards every year. You may have seen Patty featured on HGTV House Hunters "Fighting for a Fixer in NY" or on WABC TV News, or quoted in Westchester Magazine, about the real estate market. A former media relations director at The New York Times, Patty brings marketing savvy and her extensive network to her sellers and buyers. A published author (SOME NERVE: Lessons Learned While Becoming Brave was an Oprah Book Club 2.0 pick) and public speaker (TEDx Talk 100K+ views), Patty's storytelling ability blends seamlessly into her advocacy for her listings and clients. 

In order to provide the best personal diligence and care, Patty formed The A Team on the principles of Opening Doors (fair housing, luxury service at all price points), Closing Deals (vigorous representation with the highest ethical standards), Creating Community (as immigrants or the children of immigrants, we believe everyone is an insider with the right guide). A small, elite team of agents and admin allows us to be there for our clients and our communities. The A Team produces local websites:,,, and hosts networking events for clients and collaborators. We work every day by appointment from our team office in the historic Marmaduke Forster House in Pleasantville, and you can find us at the Pleasantville Farmers Market where we sponsor the Community Tent and host a Historic Homes Tour.

Testimonials (35)

Patty was the absolute best during my home buying process. She was so kind, patient, and friendly and also very detailed oriented. As a first time homebuyer, there was so much new information to learn and Patty was there for me every step of the way. She helped me understand all of the requirements for each listing, she kept open communication with me the entire time and was on point with scheduling viewings, the walkthroughs, and even ensured closing went smooth and ensured I had everything I needed to succeed. I felt truly empowered as Patty not only guided me through the process but educated me on so much as well. I would highly recommend Patty Anker! Lexys Martinez
Patty and her team leave no stone unturned! When our plans changed and we have to sell our home it was a no brainer to turn to Patty. Patty was diligent when we were buying but have truly felt and seen her force when we were selling. Patty's keen eye for details and her knowledge of the market allowed us to get an offer in record time! Her communication with us also put us at ease with a process that can be unnerving. Her incredible team also went above and beyond in marketing our home and strategizing for maximum opportunities. We are truly grateful for Patty's guidance!  Sade Ortiz Lucin
We had a wonderful experience with Patty and Harper during the purchase of our first home. They were patient and kind and also organized and tenacious! We felt so confident in their ability to navigate the process with us. We recommend "The A Team" wholeheartedly. Anna Skarstad
Working with Patty I always felt guided supported and never pressured. She patiently waited until I knew when the time was right to sell my home ( I contemplated for years...). Once the decision was made she helped make it a reality. I feel so fortunate to have had Patty's caring kind and thoughtfully thorough support through this very challenging process. I would recommend her to anyone and when I make my next purchase I do hope she will be there by my side. Lisa Hertz
Awesome people. Patty and Sara are the best. I'd highly recommend them. Steven Lowinger
Very friendly conscientious and knowledgeable. She worked with us for a long time until we found the house we wanted. Paul Sherwin
It was great working with Patty in our search for a home. She's extremely knowledgeable on the local market and what you need to know when looking at homes. So happy we found her and would definitely recommend her to anyone needing an agent!" David Kaplan
Patty is incredible at what she does. We met her at an open house she was holding representing a seller and it's the best open house we've ever been to. We then worked with her as buyers. I don't think we'd have won our bid without her - she made sure we had everything lined up to submit a great offer advised us on the amount to bid (and as we found out later got it spot on correct) and then was all over it right through closing making sure things went smoothly. There's no point taking chances buying a house so we'd highly recommend going with Patty. Suyash Bulchandani
Patty is a real estate force and a beautiful person. We could not have gotten through the nerve-rattling journey of selling our house and purchasing in a competitive market without her. Patty stuck with us through starts stops changes in direction and handled the tougher moments with grace. She sponsors the Community Tent at the farmers market and when we see her logo we feel proud to be her clients. Highly recommend. John Brine
Patty was great to work with. She helped us to sell our home and get an over-asking sale price. She took professional photos and videos. She is extremely organized and walked us through all the steps of the process. She was both a realtor and a therapist when needed. Highly recommend. Ryan Kanterman
Patty Anker and her team were terrific in helping my wife and I purchase our first home in May 2022. Patty was very patient yet informative as we shifted our focus from larger properties in southern Putnam county to smaller residences in northern and central Westchester always taking the time to let us know all of the things to look out for internally and externally when assessing a home and its surrounding neighborhood.Most of all Patty is a wonderful and thoughtful person who really enjoys helping people to realize their dreams around home ownership and make the best choices in what is a very stressful process. And she won't hesitate to fight for clients when needed as she did at our closing when the sellers left an inordinate amount of heavy items at the house that were discovered at the walk through and Patty negotiated a generous credit on our behalf.We are so thankful that we entrusted our housing search to Patty and her team! Garrett Allen

We had a great experience working with Patty. She went above and beyond to not only show us amazing houses and walk us through the complicated housing market but she also took the time to show us around the communities. We really appreciated all of her local knowledge about the various communities in Westchester and the time she spent showing us around. She helped us so much in the complicated offer process and was kind and patient throughout! We would strongly recommend working with Patty to find a house in Westchester! Colleen Gibson

As first time home buyers we're so grateful we found Patty! Throughout the process she made sure we took each step with complete knowledge of what we were doing and she promptly answered the dozens of questions we had along the way.

We highly recommend her to new and seasoned home buyers alike. James Finnan

Patty Anker is one of the most professional real estate agents I have worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Westchester area. Her demeanor with clients is unsurpassable. She is kind honest and extremely patient even with the most difficult clients! I am a local Accountant and I refer all of my clients to Patty.In addition to Westchester Patty and her team have contacts in other areas of NY as well as other states which is perfect for those clients who are relocating. I highly recommend Patty. Every one of my clients that I sent her way have been extremely pleased with her services. Karen Coniglio
Patty is an exceptional realtor who puts their client's best interests first. She's extremely responsive and caring for her clients and would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling their home. Ralph Gabay
Patty was amazing. I could not ask for more from a realtor. She was there with me every step of the way and made the process so much easier for me. Thomas Weeks
Patty is a wonderful woman who is amazing at her job. She goes above and beyond anyone's expectations. She just has a way of removing all stress and worries during a time that can be hard for people who have to move find a place and get readjusted to a new beginning. Patty gets the job done and doesn't settle for anything less than her clients happiness. Joseph Schlereth
We met with 4 other realtors prior to meeting Patty. She was the first and only agent that came prepared with a nice folder of information. More importantly Patty was the only agent who actually remembered anything from our initial phone conversation and proactively built an initial game plan for us. When there's more agents than homes for sale this level of attention to detail and active listening made our decision to ask Patty to represent us very easy. First impressions didn't disappoint during the entire process through closing. I don't think you could purchase a home during a more turbulent and challenging environment with COVID and houses in the market for only a week. Her level of perception and grasp of human psychology was essential in keeping us focused and positive while ALWAYS keeping our best interests in mind. She guided but never decided or pushed. At one point she even started sending us rental properties when it looked like we weren't going to find a place within our timeline. After a dozen offers her caring tenacity eventually landed us a home that ticked all the boxes. She helped us build an outstanding team to get the deal done and get our house ready to move in (inspectors lawyers contractors and interior designers). From house showings during snow storms to crawling around the attic Patty is at the top of her profession. We count her as part of our family and look forward to working with her in the future. Andrea Porrovecchio
Patty was incredibly helpful responsive listened to our needs and found us the absolute perfect home. Her knowledge puts you at ease and it's clear she's looking out for her clients' best interest. Jaime Mendola Hobbie
There are only amazing things I can say about Patty Anker both as a person and as a real estate agent...many amazing things! First let me backup and tell you that we tried to sell our Hawthorne NY home on our own for several months with many showings and open houses...but no offers. THEN we contacted PATTY and everything changed! She came in and made our house look better than it ever had in the 50+ years my family had owned it. She brought in her own staging items and hired a professional photographer. Wow what a difference! Within DAYS of Patty taking over there was a great offer on our house and we closed soon after. From the moment we hired Patty she was professional compassionate friendly caring and extremely helpful. She was always there when we needed her giving great advice helping with paperwork putting out fires etc. Patty always responded to us in record time and worked well with the town our real estate attorney and the buyers agent which made everything run smoothly and quickly. Patty not only has a passion for real estate but she also has a passion for people which makes the entire process so much more enjoyable. Speaking of enjoyable Patty is such a joy to be around as she is always so positive complimentary motivating and encouraging yet completely honest. She knows her stuff and is extremely intelligent. She made the entire process effortless for us. We would have saved so much time effort and money if we just hired Patty Anker from the start! Susan Czechel
Patty is an Absolute Angel!!! So sweet and understanding. She will go out of her way to get you what you want and is very patient. This lovely soul is professional and knows her stuff and truly wants you safe and happy! I'm very grateful that we found each other. She rooted for me the all way through. I HIGHLY recommend Patty Anker. She will put a smile on your face and work very hard for you. Thank you again for helping me get my very first home! Debra R.
The process of buying a home is stressful in normal times but somehow even during a pandemic Patty made buying our first home a pleasure. From early morning texts to late night phone calls Patty was patient with us and took the time to answer all of our first-time home buyer questions. She is beyond knowledgeable of West Chester and even after our closing Patty is still in contact helping us navigate our new town. Patty even started a Westchester Newcomers page on Facebook to help people who are new to the area meet something especially difficult during these times. I have already connected with many people in our town thanks to Patty! Patty's positive attitude is contagious and her communication skills are top notch. We always felt informed as the buying process moved along and knew that Patty went to bat for us during negotiations. Any real estate brokerage is lucky to have Patty on their team and anyone looking to buy or sell their home can be confident that Patty is the realtor to do it. With so many realtors out there we are so fortunate to have met Patty and look forward to working with her in the future. Jackie Cianci
I can confidently say Patty is the best realtor I've dealt with. She has so much knowledge and so much integrity. I'll be recommending her to my friends who want to move out of the city. Jon Kinderlereer
Patty is the real deal. Smart experienced incredibly diligent warm and definitely someone you want on your team. We are experienced home buyers and she represented us in purchasing a home in Pleasantville while we were living in California. From start to finish we were constantly impressed by her responsiveness and thoroughness. She worked around the clock and went above and beyond to assist us with getting endless quotes from various contractors. During our escrow process there were countless roadblocks (due to seller issues) of nightmarish proportion and Patty was the glue that held the whole deal together and got us past the finish line. Personally Patty was a pleasure to work with and we will happily be referring her to friends and family in the future. Michael Schaefer
I have met many realtors throughout the years as I enjoy visiting open houses and looking for fixer-upper's. Patty's open kind and easy going personality immediately caught my attention and her genuine love for people and her job filled the room. Because she spoke freely and honestly I didn't hesitate to do the same. Nor did I hesitate in asking her to be my realtor something I typically avoid at all costs! Her knowledge is extensive. When asked she shares it freely and without any pressure whatsoever. Purchasing a property can be quite emotional ESPECIALLY during a pandemic. Patty handled it all with professionalism and grace. Patty is a an exceptional realtor and more importantly a truly beautiful person. So glad I happened upon her at an open house! Julie Spodnick
Patty is personable professional and easy to work with. She was an excellent advocate for us and guided us seamlessly through the process considering we were first time home buyers. She was generous with her time and always available when we needed her which often put us at ease during the buying process. We lived in Brooklyn thru this process and couldn't always be available for certain aspects of the process which could have been stressful but Patty made herself available and stepped in when we needed boots on the ground. It was a pleasure to work with Patty and we'd be happy to recommend her services. Joe and Kenna
When we first decided to sell our house in Pleasantville we weren't sure what real-estate agent to use--and in fact were strongly considering another. After our first meeting with Patty Anker and Jeanne Beckley though it became obvious that we couldn't go wrong with them. Patty's warmth enthusiasm strong advocacy and ability (eagerness) to stay in touch are invaluable as you navigate the complex--and often difficult--process of selling a house. I would recommend Patty unequivocally to anyone looking to either buy or sell in this area. Joseph Wallace
Patty has a marketing background which served us well. She is very comfortable with video and social media and used them to set our house apart. She developed a strong understanding of our home's unique architectural style/ heritage and brought that to life in her promo materials. She also had a strong sense of pricing. She pushed for a higher price on our home than others were suggesting and we ended up with multiple offers over asking and a signed contract in less than 3 weeks. Patty maintained good relationships with the other potential buyers and their brokers so we would have back-up offers in case the first deal fell through. Through it all Patty was aggressive (in a good way) and on top of the details. She advised us on home staging and helped us get the place to show at its best. She has a positive can-do energy.
