Patrick Carroll, of his namesake company CARROLL, is a leader in the real estate world. He built the diverse real estate investing organization from the ground up on his values of innovation and commitment to excellence, which has propelled the business to unprecedented success. Patrick’s story however is not that of your average real estate investor; he taught himself the ins and outs of the industry, and through incredible tenacity and dedication to always bettering himself, skyrocketed to become an industry leader. Today, with an established and thriving company, he dedicates both time and money to inspiring others—especially kids—to relentlessly pursue their goals.
As a self-made success story Patrick attributes many of his accomplishments to his drive, “it’s about the fire, and wanting to be the best, I want to show people, especially kids, that you can make it your own way,” he explains. Beyond constantly striving to improve, Patrick also promotes a culture of giving back within his company. CARROLL is involved with Habitat for Humanity, and its employees are encouraged to participate in philanthropic ventures, while Patrick also supports the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and provides scholarships to in-need students from his old high school. This is all done to empower those kids and show that they can do anything they set their mind to through hard work. “I don’t fit the bill of a typical CEO, and I want to show kids that you do not have to do things the traditional route, and can still make it,” he explains.
With a strong sense of community within the company—which Patrick explains feels more like a big family—and an emphasis on giving back and delivering the highest standard of performance, it’s clear that CARROLL will continue to lead the way with innovation in the real estate market.
