Several months ago my partner and I were first-time home buyers looking for an experienced realtor to work with. Trish and Cara were recommended to us by my mom.
Trish... read more handled our home-buying experience with incredible grace, organization, and expertise from a decade in the business. She taught us the process of buying a house and guided us through it skillfully.
My parents participated in parts of the housing search including going to open houses, and Trish managed all four of our communication styles and concerns so well.
Her knowledge of the market and advice saved us from missteps and helped us make competitive offers. In high-pressure moments, Trish stayed cool, kept a sense of humor, and knew what to do.
We ended up backing out of one contract and going with another property that was a better fit for our needs, and Trish managed that tricky process smoothly.
Yet my favorite aspect of working with Trish was her integrity—she respected our decisions and never pressured us into going after a property; she also told us plainly if she thought a property wasn’t right for us or if our offer was too high or low, regardless of the financial benefit to herself as the realtor.
We are so happy with our new home and so grateful to Trish for making the highly-stressful business of home-buying such a good experience!

Trish is an outstanding agent — I can confidently say we wouldn't have been able to get our home in this competitive housing market without her. Not only was Trish... read more super responsive, knowledgeable, and thorough with all the aspects of home buying, she listened to our goals and got us exactly what we wanted!
We were introduced to Trish by a mortgage officer we trusted, and we were really lucky to have the opportunity to work with her. Having little time on hand with our 3 month old baby and needing more room for our family, Trish was sensitive to our situation, researched listings and narrowed down homes to tour that met all our needs.
Trish provided invaluable advice in reviewing all the disclosures (and even requesting ones that were omitted), market analysis and preparing an offer we felt comfortable with. She diligently worked in our best interest, and even negotiated a seller credit to close the deal.
If you're in the market for a home, we can't recommend Trish enough!

We have known Trish for 8 years, she helped us buy our first home and then helped us turn around to sell it 7 years later. Trish is very responsive,... read more knowledgeable, kind, professional and authentic. She genuinely wants to help families succeed and her intentions are always coming from the right place. She sticks to her word as well. Because of her high character, we have always had peace of mind when working with her and cannot think of anyone else that we would trust more.

Trish is exceptional and I can say with utmost confidence that she is the realtor for you. As a first time millennial home buyer, I'm truly grateful that she represented... read more me in the purchase of my first home. The entire home buying process can be overwhelming, and the SF Bay Area market is a rapidly changing, ever-complex market to navigate. Trish made the entire process experience easy and memorable.
Going into the home buying process, I didn't quite know where to begin. But I knew that I wanted someone that I could trust and rely on. Someone with good communication and can understand what I was looking for, even if I couldn't quite describe or put it into words. I was looking for a partner that prioritized my wellbeing and interests over the metrics, sales, and money. Trish was all that and more.
Trish steered me away of a handful of bad situations that were tempting to an inexperienced buyer (an example of prioritizing the client over the purchase). She recognized when I felt uncomfortable with a listing or location- an example of how in-tune she was as an agent. As an engineer, I personally need to see situations in a data-oriented way. Trish knew that and tailored her approach to my style.
My home buying journey took more than half a year because I was adamant in being slow with the process. Trish understood that and displayed incredible patience. I've gotten to know Trish well through all the open houses and private listings we've visited. She was always available and responsive to me, regardless of where she is and what she's doing.
Trish helped me get exactly what I was looking for- a modest and charming place to call my home in the heart of San Francisco. Shortly after our initial meeting, Trish asked what I was looking for- in hindsight, it is eerily scary that it ended up being exactly what I described and envisioned.
To say that I'm lucky to have Trish as a partner, and now friend, is an understatement. I trust Trish wholeheartedly to represent me as she would represent herself or her family. I've recommended Trish to all my friends who are thinking about home ownership and are about to embark on the journey I've just concluded.
When I inevitably outgrow my place and will need to purchase another home to start/grow a family, I'm going to be reaching out to Trish again. There's no realtor that I trust more.
