Patrick M. O’Connor

In January  2013, my wife and I made the decision that it was no longer safe to be at my job. For over 30 years, I had been working with Electronics, Automation Systems, and Robotics. The idea of leaving the type of work I had done for that length of time was terrifying.

In January 2009, I had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Not cancer, but one that would grow and kill me anyway. The decision was made to have the surgery while it was small. One thing that happened as a result of that surgery was the inability to effectively control my balance. As time went on, the issues became worse.

I went back to college after leaving work and for three years, studied media and communications. However, job offers came slow. Finally, another decision was made to go into Real Estate. Real estate has been a learning experience. I’ve been very fortunate to have the support of my wife and those who have trusted me with their home purchases.

Overcoming obstacles have been a big part of my life. I wouldn’t change any of the circumstances I have been through because all of it has gotten me where I am today.

My goal is to bring value to whoever I deal with. I have the gift of teaching and thrive on the idea of helping people walk through the home buying or selling process.

Let’s have a conversation.

I work with Ebby Halliday, REALTORS® Plano/Willow Bend office located in Plano, Texas.

The love of my life and my best friend is Rev. Sharon O’Connor, an Elder in the United Methodist Church. She currently serves at Custer Road United Methodist Church.

The Little Debt-Free Book” is a title I wrote and published in 2015 and tells my personal journey with finances. If you know anyone who needs assistance in this area, it’s a whole lot cheaper than other studies.

I hold a BA in Media and Communications from The University of Texas at Dallas.

Whether you are down-sizing or moving-up, I can help you get where you want to be.

  2. Hello Patrick I sure enjoyed reading about your story and how you worked to get debt free. I believe being debt free is the best gift you can give yourself. John and I worked to get out of debt from the very beginning of our marriage and achieved that goal within a couple of years. Debt freedom is awesome. Good luck with your job hunt and please tell Pastor Sharon hello from John and Brenda Williams. Have a blessed day.
