Daphne Patton

Daphne Patton, REALTOR®

The Climber

Whether she’s running a marathon or climbing a mountain, Daphne is always moving. Her ‘never sit down, never give up’ attitude as an endurance athlete is what inspires her to work tirelessly for buyers and sellers. Her track record as a collegiate athlete, University of Iowa Rowing Team letter winner, retired downhill ski racer, and high school soccer player complement a nearly two decade career in real estate. Attentive and outgoing, Daphne understands what it’s like to be driven by a goal—whether that goal is to break a personal record or purchase your first home. 

Daphne was born in Rome, Italy and raised in Chicago. She’s run a total of seven marathons in the U.S. and globally, including the Boston Marathon, Paris Marathon, and Marine Corps Marathon. When she’s not working with clients or running marathons, she enjoys reading, interior design, and drinking coffee. Her favorite activity is cheering on her kids—her daughter, twin sons, and three billet kids who play hockey for the Cedar Rapids Roughriders. Daphne lives in North Liberty with her husband, her brood of kids, and four Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs.

What Clients Say About Daphne Patton

“When we signed on with Daphne, our house had been on the market for about four months and we were missing the personal touch with our other Realtor team. Daphne was the breath of fresh air we needed. She enlisted Evolve Staging and Design to stage our home in such a beautiful way. She promptly answered every text I sent, communicating about open houses, showings, etc. She convinced me to stay the course through this crazy Iowa winter and sold our house soon after the ice melted! I most appreciated Daphne’s positive attitude and sense of humor. She made a stressful situation a manageable one. I feel like I’ve made a new friend for life. Thanks, Daphne!”

— Jenny Whitters

“Daphne was amazing in helping us purchase our first home together! She was easy to contact and always had our best interests at heart. If we experienced any issues in the process, she was on it right away. She was insightful when we asked for advice as well. We would recommend Daphne to anyone looking to move to the Corridor area. She has a wonderful personality and is dedicated to providing those she works with with the best experience possible!”

— Brianna Blum

“Daphne was excellent to work with when we relocated from Minneapolis early in 2016. We toured a couple of properties so that Daphne could get an idea of the property that would best suit our needs. In only a matter of weeks, Daphne found a house that exceeded our expectations. Daphne was fantastic to work with during the process and the follow-up. ”

— David Willer

“We love working with Daphne as our Realtor. Daphne patiently spent two years showing us houses until we found and purchased the perfect starter home. Now she is showing us houses as our family is expanding. She is honest and helps us understand the pros and cons of different homes. Highly recommend Daphne to all our friends.”

— Megan Carnahan

Urban or Acres?

I’m a little bit of both. Being from a major city makes me urban, but I live in the country now and love the peace, serenity, and connection with nature my ‘acres’ give me.
