Patrick Bailey was fortunate to have grown up on Sanibel, having lived on the Island since 1978. He attended Sanibel elementary and played little league on the Island in the 1980’s. After finishing his primary and secondary school here he went to the University of Miami to earn his BBA and MBA. He completed his Juris Doctor at the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. During Law School he was appointed an Articles Editor for the Nova Law Review and his article was chosen to be published in the 2001 Law Review publication.
During summer and winter breaks he worked on the Island, even obtaining a Summer Internship at the Sanibel Planning Department in the 1990’s. After Law School he practiced law in Fort Myers and the surrounding Counties for 13 years handling various types of cases.
When Patrick started a family he decided that he wanted his children to grow up on the Island and enjoy the same great experiences he had. He recently joined his mother, Mary Lou Bailey, in the Real Estate Business intending to continue almost four decades of family tradition in helping buyers and sellers meet their Real Estate needs.
