Marc H. in Olympic Valley

The one thing it took me some time getting used to, Trinkie is a little bit of a celebrity in Tahoe real estate. Everywhere we went, people always knew who she was. After working with her for 3 years, I understood why. Her local knowledge and market savviness is par excellence. I even enjoy having her dog ride in the back seat and accompanying us on viewing tours.

Marius E. bought a home in Truckee

Trinkie helped us purchase our vacation home in Tahoe Donner and we recommend her without hesitation. She reworked her calendar to be available when most convenient for us. After showing us 8 properties on a Saturday, we emailed her in the middle of the night asking if we could see an additional few properties the next day (our preferences changed somewhat based on what we saw the first day). She researched the properties and was ready to go 9am the very next day. Wow! Her advice and suggestions were all right on, and showed that she had really taken to heart our preferences and was working to make sure we could find the home that would make us happy long term. Her steady guidance through the buying process was also very appreciated.

Robert D. sold a home in Truckee

Trinkie listed our vacation / investment home in 2012; and due to market conditions and the quality of the home in relation to the location , the final sale was completed in the summer of 2013. Thus, both my wife and I had a long period of time to work with Trinkie and her team. Trinkie was chosen for her knowledge of the market and the respect given to her by the other Realtors in the area. Second home markets are difficult unless the property is a forced sale or has a stronger location than ours. Still, Trinkie helped us and the property sale with good suggestions and ideas. The home to this day is and was considered to be one of the best values for sale at the time. We are sure our beliefs about Trinkie would be shared by all of her clients. In summary both my wife and I would definitely recommend Trinkie for others or in the case we should ever consider a real estate purchase in the Truckee / Lake Tahoe Basin.

Jim A. sold a home in Truckee

Trinkie is a true professional in every sense of the word. Her years of experience in the greater Tahoe market, her community involvement and knowledge of market trends, and her commitment to both her buyers and sellers is legendary. We have been both! Highly recommend Trinkie for either side of a real estate transaction.

Libby R. sold a home in Homewood

Trinkie helped sell our long time vacation home in Tahoma along with her great team of associates. She was very patient and calm during the long process and kept me advised during what I saw as a very stressful process having never sold a home on my own.

Susan H. sold a home in Alpine Meadows

I have known Trinkie for many years and know of her reputation in the community as one its premier realtors. When it came time to sell my home in Alpine Meadows, CA, I was excited to call her to ask her to be my realtor. She led me through the process with knowledge and humor and understanding. She was able to educate me when I was not sure and encourage me when we found glitches. Also, because of her longtime residence in the area and the working relationships cultivated over this time, she had many resources to recommend to me when I needed help of various kinds. The result was a sold home in a fairly short time from listing to closing. Finally, I would use Trinkie again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend her to all!
