Our Story


In 2007, certified auctioneers David Coleman & Tom Patterson identified an underserved market in Texas where regional and state banks needed an auction partner to expedite the sale of selected real estate assets. Within 3 years of forming Coleman & Patterson, the company auctioned more than 200 bank owned properties. As the bank-owned market recovered, Coleman & Patterson moved into the traditional real estate market. Over the years the brokerage has grown organically and now features over 25 licensed agents located across Texas.

In 2016, Coleman & Patterson added Bret Richards, as Partner and Director of Operations. Holding real estate brokerages in 16 states, a senior auctioneer and account manager to the nation’s largest financial institutions, Bret has extensive experience in the real estate auction industry.

Today Coleman & Patterson is a value-added brokerage designed for agent success, professional client representation, and showcases a diversified skillset to help in all facets of buying and selling. Many of our sales today come as referrals by our network of friends and clients. As a trusted advisor with proactive solutions, we thrive on helping customers with their real estate needs. We believe in delivering more than promised, with transparency, and we stand by our brand promise of “More marketing exposure to client listings than anyone else”.
