About Elton

From Humble Beginnings

Originally from Tallahassee, Florida, Elton Patterson is the youngest of ten children. He played football for the Rickards Raiders, formerly known as Redskins, where he was among the best in the city and graduated as a student-athlete scholar. Elton was blessed enough to be awarded a scholarship to the University of Central Florida where he played as a Defensive End for 4 years and graduated in 3 1/2 years with a degree in Health Service Administration.

Shortly after, Elton was drafted to the NFL by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2003 NFL Draft. He continued his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars and enjoyed 4 great years. He took a chance at entreprenuership by investing in a Sprint store franchise and earned his Real Estate's license.

Elton specializes in securing homes predominately for professional athletes and has established business relationships not only on the field but in the office as well. Most of his clients are based in the Miami area where he handles million-dollar homes. In 2011, Elton began operating his own real estate firm called 1st Line Realty. Now he continues to secure a strong clientele serving them as a Broker-Agent at Advanced Realty. As a Real Estate broker, Elton has negotiated over fifteen million dollars of estate primarily for the likes of professional athletes and celebrities.

Aside from real estate, Elton has also founded Blue Sol yoga, which provides a variety of yoga styles for all levels in a relaxing environment to meet your yoga needs. Blue Sol is located in Weston, Florida which is growing at an alarming rate. He has recently graduated with a Masters Degree in Sports Leadership from his alma mater with the idea of mastering the business side in sports.


“His business skills off the field are just as impressive and has managed to become a successful entrepreneur and great mentor to others.”
