Patrick McClanahan is an Associate of Edge Realty Advisors. He is a 3rd generation Orlandoan, where he still resides today. Patrick graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Finance. While studying at UCF, Patrick was an intern in the equity research department at RedChip Companies where he helped produce research reports and projected valuations on select small-cap equities. After graduation he was hired on full-time and worked with the company until December 2010 when he joined Charles Schwab as a Relationship Specialist eventually working his way up to Sr. Relationship Specialist. In this role, Patrick was the primary contact for 30 independent wealth management firms with AUM totaling $2.7 billion. During his time at Schwab, he earned his FINRA Series 7, 66, 9 & 10 licenses. In December 2013, Patrick joined several former Schwab colleagues at CNL Securities Corp., a leading alternative investment management firm with over $10 billion in AUM during his tenure. At CNL he served in the Internal Wholesaler role for the state of Texas, working with financial advisors to raise capital for various non-traded alternative investments within CNL’s portfolio. These funds included CNL Healthcare Properties I&II (REITs), CNL Growth Properties I (REIT), CNL Growth Properties II (Private Placement) as well as Corporate Capital Trust I&II (Business Development Companies).
Due to recently added regulations, raising capital for alternative investments became increasingly difficult and Patrick decided it was time for a career change. Reflecting on past investments in real estate, Patrick decided to pursue his passion for real estate. Patrick began taking appraisal pre-licensure courses and earned his registered trainee appraiser designation. Not long after, Patrick’s initiative proved beneficial when Edge Realty Advisors provided an opportunity. Since joining Edge, Patrick has been immersed in real estate, learning about the many appraisal principles and market fundamentals that impact the value of real estate. Patrick is excited about expanding his real estate knowledge and pursing his state-certified general licensing in Florida.
Patrick has been married to his wife Amanda since 2014. In 2017 they welcomed their first child, Conor. Patrick’s hobbies include golfing, racquetball, vacationing at Siesta Key, fine dining, craft beers, the Green Bay Packers, and UFC. Patrick looks forward to spending less time changing diapers and spending more time teaching Conor about his hobbies.
