Client Reviews

Thanks to Trish, my recent home purchase was such a positive experience. Trish exudes the following qualities, which I attribute to this exceptional outcome:

AVAILABLITY – Trish was available via phone, e-mail, text, or in person whenever I needed her. She answered my questions quickly and took the time to look into all of the “what if” scenarios I brought to her on a regular basis. Her easy-going yet professional approach made her a pleasure to work with.

AREA EXPERT – Trish is connected. She knows the neighborhoods, she knows the community, and she knows the people in related service industries. There is no substitute for her experience and expertise.

IN TUNE – Trish took the time to understand what I was in the market for. She focused on the neighborhoods I was interested in and the price range I was comfortable with. Trish nailed it on the head when she found a house I could afford, with the space that I needed, in the area that I love.

If you are looking for a Realtor who understands the South Lake Tahoe housing market, Trish is it! For any of you exploring the possibility of a vacation home and are not very familiar with the area, she can tell you just about anything in terms of where the best hiking/biking/outdoor adventures are. I bought and sold my home through Trish and would not use anyone else. She is ethical, trustworthy, and an overall fabulous person.

Dear Trish,

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for your service and knowledge that you so effortlessly provided us during our purchase transaction in South Lake Tahoe.  Your knowledge of the area proves to be invaluable to vacationers and primary home owners alike.  Your ability in finding a home that suited both our needs and budget was uncanny.  Futhermore, your passion and zeal for real estate shined brightly via your diligent negotiations, endless follow-through, and true professionalism when presented with obstacles and concerns.  Your calm and cool demeanor, your experience, and thorough communication led us to trusting that we were in worthy hands.

In conclusion, the experience was excellent.  The home is perfect and your service goes above and beyond the call of duty.  Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to create priceless memories for years and generations to come.

Sincerely,  Mrs. Wang  – April 2014


Thank you so much for all you have done.  Wish we had found you initially, you made the process painless.

Thanks, Karen M. -  March 2014


What goes around, comes around.  Trish was there for us exactly 19 years ago, almost to the day, when we were in the market for buying our first home together.  After raising 2 great boys, it was time to downsize and sell.  Trish was there for us again.  She knew our needs as a first time buyer and again as a first time seller.  She has the magic touch – she knew what we had in mind and didn’t waste our time showing us houses that we wouldn’t like or couldn’t afford.  The first house we looked at was the house we bought to make our home.  She made buying simple – we checked the property out & gave a bid the same day on Valentine’s Day, closed on St. Patrick’s Day and moved in on Easter.  She had been there over the years as the market tanked to give advice to hold on and weather the storm.  When the final decision was made to sell this February, Trish was there again to hold our hands.  She walked us through the steps of readying the house before putting it on the market, pricing it just right so that we got competitive bids the day we put out the sign, and all through the paperwork for closing in 30 days.  Trish is the best.  I had heard stories from friends about their experiences buying and selling and I was a bit scared both times.  But Trish made it easy.  She was patient and kind, always ready to listen and answer our questions no matter how small.  I recommend Trish to anyone thinking of buying or selling in Tahoe, she knows Tahoe, its market, and all that it takes to make it happen.

Fantastic agent. Found what I wanted in 15 days. Pleasure to work with, honest, and organized.

Last year my wife and I were looking to purchase our first home in South Lake Tahoe, and we needed an agent with superb experience, knowledge, and work ethic to get the job done. After all, with so much at stake, we needed to get the perfect agent. We chose Trish Hall of Realty World, and we have been thanking the real estate gods ever since.

From the get-go, Trish listened attentively to our needs while educating us on what we needed to know about the current real estate market and home buying process. After viewing just a few houses, she knew exactly what type of house and neighborhood would most appeal to us. Trish’s keen intuition was invaluable. Time was precious, and we could not afford to spend the few days we had free viewing houses that ill-suited us.

And when we viewed a house that was not quite what we expected, Trish gave us her honest opinion. “We’ll just have to keep looking until the right house comes along,” we remembered her saying. Less than two weeks later, Trish called to inform us that our ideal house was going to be listed the next day, and that we needed to jump on the opportunity. Heeding her advice, we made a bid and were informed shortly thereafter that we had gotten it!

Trish was even more helpful during the stressful escrow process. She was there to guide us every step of the way, working diligently to make it as painless and easy as possible. She was always available to answer our questions and concerns. She even accompanied us to the title company, sitting by our side as a second pair of eyes through the myriad of paperwork. Trish was not obligated to do this, but chose to do it anyway.

So if you are looking for a consummate professional who takes pride and joy in making people’s home-buying dreams come true then look no further. Choose Trish Hall and pat yourself on the back for making one of the best decisions of your life!

We walked into the Realty World office one afternoon after skiing to ask for information about buying a home in South Lake Tahoe. Trish just happened to be in the office that day and took time out of her workday to talk with us about what kind of home and what price range we were looking at. From that point on, she also took the time on the weekends to show us homes that we were interested in since we lived in the Bay Area. Throughout this process, Trish was always very helpful, patient and insightful especially knowing which areas around Tahoe that were desirable in our price range. After three years of looking, we finally found our home and moved in last year. Our realty relationship did not end there, Trish was also very helpful with referrals to local handymen/contractors when we needed work done on the home afterwards. We would highly recommend Trish for all realty questions in Lake Tahoe and neighboring areas.

We purchased our house in 2008, right as the first bank owned properties were becoming available. Trish helped us to navigate a complicated loan as well as the labyrinth of paperwork from the banks who were just learning about foreclosure sales themselves. She provided us with steady updates on the progress of our purchase and was always available to answer questions. She helped make this transition for our family a less stressful and more exciting time. Thanks so much Trish!

Trish and Joel have gone above and beyond in helping me purchase my house. I am confident that without their expertise this particularly tricky short-sale would have slipped away. They were consistently available and helpful in answering each and every one of my first-time homebuyer questions. Trish’s passion to help people and intuition in knowing the buyer’s needs is exceptional. Joel’s unparralled professionalism and ease of working with, made me feel secure during the processes. I would not hesitate to work with either of them again and highly recommend them to help you with any real estate needs.

Having sold an investment property in another recreational area, my wife and I were looking to exchange into an investment property in South Lake Tahoe.  We contacted Trish and arranged to meet with her during our three day stay to see what we could find.  Trish was very friendly, professional and organized in showing us available properties that met our criteria.  During our search a new listing hit the market, working with Trish, we knew about it immediately and made an offer.  We now own and rent that house.  Trish was very generous, sharing with us her time, contacts and expertise.

Thanks Trish, Rick and Jimi


Trish predicted that my dream house would be put on the market about one year after I moved to Tahoe. Exactly one year later, with some teamwork between Trish and Mike, I  have purchased my perfect home and moved in! The dynamic team at Realty World Lake Tahoe handled everything for me and I am so glad they are working for me, and they continue to work for me after the sales is closed.  I call with questions and they are there for me, no matter what.  Amazing level of commitment and service.
