My RE Mission...Is to respect the integrity and the needs of my clients with uncompromising honesty!

Your real estate investment should add to your assets, not break your bank. As a knowledgeable real estate broker for 30 years, I have come to know real estate, especially the South Florida market. As a resident of Broward County since 1973, I have come to know the nuances of this region. My family and I appreciate South Florida’s rare blend of small-town community pride and cosmopolitan sophistication. I realized early on that successful real estate sales begin with matching people to the homes and communities that best suit their lifestyle. My knowledge of the area and the local Real Estate market makes me the perfect choice when looking for a realtor.
My affiliation with the Fort Lauderdale Board of Realtors, The National Association of Realtors, The Florida Association of Mortgage Brokers and the local Chambers of Commerce has established me as a professional who is here to stay. My access to the Multiple Listing Service and The National Association of Realtors allows me to network with other realtors so that, whether buying or selling, the most pertinent information needed to close your transaction is literally at my fingertips, including information that is not found in the MLS.
Throughout Broward County/South Florida I specialize in: waterfront properties, beach condos, investments opportunities, property management, and large commercial properties.
I have sold over 2,000 single family homes, townhomes, condos, and commercial properties, which amounts to over 400 million in sales volume. In addition, I have listed over 3,000 single family homes, townhomes, condos, and commercial properties throughout South Florida.
I was born in Italy, but I speak English, Italian, and Spanish. I have 30 years of experience in listing and selling residential and commercial properties in South Florida (USA). In my real estate career, I have been a top producer for Century 21, ERA, and Better Homes & Garden by consistently listing and selling 75-100 properties per year.
In 1994, I was awarded the Top Gun agent award in Broward County Florida by ERA. From 1994 to 1999, I served as chairman for the MLS and Legal Forms Committee for the South Broward Board of Realtors. I received several awards for implementing numerous ideas, such as improving the MLS search engine as well as legal paragraphs in the Contract for Sale and Purchase.
In 1999-2003, I was Vice President of GMAC Home Team Realty, Inc. We had four offices in Broward County, and I managed the GMAC Real Estate office in Ft. Lauderdale.
In July 2003, I formed 1st American Group & Inv. Realty, Inc. located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
In 2006, I became a real estate coach for the Mike Ferry Organization and coached new agents as well real estate brokers for one year.
In 2008-2011, I designed a specific Short Sale and REO system that was proven to sell properties 67% faster and 2.1% for more money. This system has been carefully crafted by integrating the latest and most cutting edge selling techniques that automatically attract the most likely buyer.
My goal is to help as many buyers and sellers in my market place by providing the most efficient and speedy real estate services.

Victor Patane is a true professional first! He marketed my condo world wide with an excellent virtual tour of my condo. He handled the sale from A to Z. Infact he also arranged for me to sign all the closing documents before the closing because I had to leave prior to the closing. Victor Patane is excellent!!!
Let me ask you a question: Will you remember your sales associate name 21 years after you’ve bought a property?… I do! His name is Victor Patane. I think you would remember too if after half a year trying to buy and going from Realtor to Realtor just to hear that they cannot get you to qualify because you have a poor profile, finally, you find one who has determination, knowledge and not afraid to work hard to make things happened. Thank you, Mr. Patane, for making my American dream become a reality, and for showing that real professionalism will go a long way. Usually, I am reluctant to use grandiloquent words but “you are my hero.”
The service and personal attention we received from Victor Patane was exceptional. His knowledge of the local market and key contacts in the community helped us with selling our home and finding the perfect condo in a beautiful location. After patiently going through listings and explaining every detail with us, he made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one! It was also comforting to know that if Victor didn’t answer his phone right away, a return call was just minutes away.Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Victor Patane to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor Agent to guide us through the process.
Just imagine, in approximately 5 weeks' time you sold my house! I am extremely grateful for your day to-day information during that time which kept me on top of what was taking place in every aspect of the transaction. Your dedicated and persevering attitude will always be remembered. Sometimes simple words say it best: Thank You.
— Maureen Kellawan, Pembroke Pines
Thank you for all your patience. I worked with other Realtors in the area that I was interested in for quite some time and was not able to find a foreclosure property in my price range. Once I started working with you, not only did you guide and advise me throughout the complicated foreclosure process, but you also found the perfect home within my price range. Thank you for being beside me and guiding me in an uncertain part of my life. You made buying my first house simple and easy. I will pass out your cards to all of my friends and family looking to buy or sell a house.
— Adamo Tomassi, (Sunswept) Pembroke Pines
We just want to express our gratitude for being such a great person and most of all a knowledgeable Broker. You sold us this house in 1996 and because you did a great job then, we called you when it was time to sell it. We thought that in this market we would not be able to get the price that we wanted, but you did it again. We got a great price when we purchased it, and we got a great price when you sold it. We could not have asked for a better Broker.

Victor Patane, of 1st American Group and Investments Reality, is the best realtor we have had the pleasure of working with and we have worked with quite a few in the NYC metro area where we recently bought a house. He helped us find a condo that accepts pets (and not many in Florida do!). Victor continues to assist us, post closing on our unit, with questions about insurance and deeds. He has welcomed us to Florida and our dogs couldn't be more grateful!
