Pat Sabin, REALTOR®
Virtual Properties Realty, Inc.
Living and working in Gwinnett County and northeast Atlanta is a joy! The people here are so friendly, interesting, and diverse. We enjoy mild weather and beautiful seasonal changes, and there are so many opportunities for strolling through historic towns and public parks, and attending live theatre, concerts, and sporting events. The north Georgia mountains are an easy day trip, and the beach is just five hours away. What more could I want?
My goal is to make your home selling experience informed and successful.
Hobbies & Travel
Since college I have been an avid photographer, and I still carry my camera most of the time to photograph subdivision amenities, old houses, parks, cemeteries, ducks and geese, and anything else that catches my attention. I host several history and genealogy web sites, including Gwinnett County GAGenWeb. As a result I have fallen in love with vintage postcards. I have been collecting for about ten years, and restore vintage postcard digital images for use in documentaries, publications and print.
My daily stress reliever is a walk in one of our lovely Gwinnett County parks with my iPod. When I have a few days off I enjoy vacationing in "lowcountry" South Carolina and East Tennessee where I am able to combine history and genealogy with family visits and beautiful scenery.
I'm fortunate to have my immediate family living here, and we see each other often for cookouts, impromptu lunches, movies and theater. I have greatly spoiled inside cats, and one completely awful outside cat who was abandoned by his previous owner and somehow became my cat. He's roamed the neighborhood for so many years, each neighbor calls him by a different name.

Volunteer Organizations & Hobbies
Since 1999 I have
been a USGenWeb Project County and State Coordinator
in several states, working with volunteers all over the
country. I have been the County Coordinator
County GAGenWeb since 2004. I am
fascinated by personal stories and old
photographs. If you are interested in Gwinnett
County history, I invite you to visit. If you are a Gwinnett County
native, I'd love to have your participation!
I host a support and
information forum of over 850 members for Normal
Pressure Hydrocephalus, an under-diagnosed neurological condition that affects
many elderly people and their families.
I'm just getting back to
gardening after the end of the drought, and right
now am concentrating on bee and butterfly friendly
plants. I'm a big fan of bumble bees, and they
are on the decline in North America.
If you are thinking about
listing your home in Gwinnett, I'd love to talk to

free Comparative Market Analysis for your
