In June of 2017 – DiAnne Beard Brown had this to say: “Dear Trish, I cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did with the sale of my mother’s South Lake Tahoe cabin. Everything was taken care of in a professional and timely matter from your first e-mail through the follow-up on closing. Your prompt reply to all my questions was greatly appreciated and all of your staff and subcontractors were very thorough and great. In the short time we worked together, I truly feel that I have a new friend. Please feel free to forward my contact information as I would love to give you a recommendation. Thank you again and again.” The picture below is an image of the family cabin which will be restored by it’s new owners. A good match all around.
After renting in South Lake Tahoe for the past five years, my husband and I decided to take the big leap and buy a home in this area that we love so much. We are so glad that we chose Trish Hall and Karen Bailey to help us find our mountain home. Trish was thorough in her search, helping us learn about different neighborhoods while listening to our wish list. She guided us through the home buying process in South Lake Tahoe with expertise, compassion and a great deal of patience. Just as we were ready to put our search on hold, Trish’s daughter and real estate partner, Karen Bailey encouraged us to look at a home that we thought we were not interested in. It turned out to be ‘the one’. Karen hit the nail on the head with style, neighborhood and size. We closed on our Tahoe retreat just three weeks ago and we could not be happier. Trish and Karen’s service extends well beyond finding the perfect home. Their extensive local knowledge is helping us connect with local services and activities. We know that our relationship with them is not ending with the close of escrow. They will be there for us whenever we have a question or concern and that includes helping us discover new hiking trails, bike routes and beaches. We would highly recommend Trish and Karen to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in South Lake Tahoe.

If you’re looking for the best in Tahoe, look no further than Trish Hall. We can’t say enough positive things about her professionalism, personal attention, and communication. She made the sale of our home as easy as humanly possible, given the extremely short schedule we had to work with to sell our home, pack, clean, and move 1000 miles for work relocation. She went right to work evaluating our property so it was priced correctly in the market, and then proceeded to impress us with her listing and unbelievably quick sale. Trish was also invaluable in helping us with the arrangement of general house clean up, helping to reduce the stress level that comes with a big move. Trish provided us with a first class experience we’ll never forget, and we’ll always appreciate.
Thank You Trish!

Trish – I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much I appreciate all of the love and caring that you exhibited towards my sister and brother-in-law!! Not only with the purchase of their new home, but as an example of a wonderful Christian! Your numerous visits to their home and looking after their needs is appreciated beyond measure.
Trish Hall is a wonderful realtor! She is knowledgeable in every area of real estate. Trish knows the South Lake Tahoe market better than any other realtor out there! She priced our house correctly and managed the whole selling process professionally. We couldn’t have asked for a kinder more helpful realtor!
Maureen and Ron
Trish Hall is great! We met her through a referral from a friend in 2002. It took her no time at all to recognize what we were looking for and she soon had the perfect place for us. We kept that home for 13 years and then in 2015 we decided it was time to find a new home. Of course, we immediately went to Trish. She helped us put a deal together on an absolutely beautiful home on the first day we looked. She also was able to sell our home in a short period of time. I have never seen a realtor that goes above and beyond in all aspects of attaining and/or selling a home like she does. I would highly recommend Trish for anyone’s real estate needs. Trish is a super realtor, a wonderful person AND has turned out to be a great friend!

So glad to hear that it went well, however, I had no doubt! Trish is the best in the area. Not only is she a very good agent she is honest and very trustworthy!!

This was the best agent ever! Never any hesitation in recommending her to any of your clients selling their rentals. She figured out what we needed to sell as a out of state owner. Whew! We are closed and its all Trish!

We have been buying and selling properties for 29 years. I can’t remember a better agent then you Trish. You certainly earned every penny of your commission. This was a challenging sale since we are out of the state sellers. You promptly helped us each step of the way. Thank you so much for your expertise and can do attitude.
Sam, March 2105
I’ve known Trish for many years and have recommended her to friends in the past. She has good market knowledge, is an investor herself and just a really great person to boot! I recently used her for a purchase and she was accommodating, professional and fun to work with!
E. Bickert, November 2014
Thank you so very much for your expertise in selling my Tahoe house. From the moment I met you, I knew I was in good hands. Trying to sell a house from the other end of the state proved to be seamless as you always kept me informed of progress, your attention to detail was impeccable, you exhibited a professional and calm demeanor and answered any and all questions with patience and your knowledge of the market in Tahoe was immeasurable. When I visit Tahoe, I will be sure to stop in and say hi. If anyone I know is interested in property in Tahoe, I will recommend you wholeheartedly.
We had a great deal of pleasure describing our interactions with Trish Hall as clients and realtor and that is because it never really felt like a business interaction. From the very beginning of the relationship we were impressed with her energy, her willingness to act as a coordinator, her knowledge of all legal and construction matters, her list of knowledgeable workmen and her own ability to do physical things for the betterment of the property.
The above list alone would be enough for us to highly recommend Trish to anyone needing a real estate agent in the Lake Tahoe area but that is only the beginning. Just as important to us was our personal interaction with Trish. The whole experience was more like doing a business deal with our best friend because that is how she made us feel. There was never a question (at any time of night or day) she would not endeavor to answer.
Anyone needing a verbal endorsement of Trish’s ability or actual list of all she did for us over the course of our business
dealings is welcome to contact us personally.

I was finally ready to look for a home and thought it would be great to contact Trish Hall, since I knew her son. Trish made the process of buying a house so simple and easy to understand since I had no idea on where to begin besides just looking on her website. After contacting Trish she always had my interests in mind and any house that she may have known was going to come on the market or if there was already a house on the market, she would always shoot me an email or text right away. She didn’t want me to lose out on a great opportunity if she thought it was a good house. She never urged myself to look at a house that wasn’t going to fit my budget; she always took inconsideration my needs and wants for the house, as well as, my budget. There were a couple of houses I looked at and she told me straight up all pros and cons of the house and I felt that she was treating myself as if she would want someone to treat her if she was looking for a house to buy. Luckily, Trish emailed me right away when a house came on the market even though I was a few days away from closing on another home. I can’t thank her enough for that email because that house was the one I ended up taking over the house I was possibly going to close on. It couldn’t have been better timing because this house had much more to give and I felt like it was a better choice for myself.
If you are looking for a realtor, 100% hands down you need to choose Trish Hall. She really makes the experience about you and what you want no matter what your budget is. She is awesome!

Belated Review – Closed Escrow 07/29/13
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.
Ami – June 2014
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.
Jen R. – April 2014
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.
Carmine – July 2013
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!
Lawrence and Kathrin – June 2012
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.
Han and Larry
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!
Doug and Karen
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.
Jordan – May 2013
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.
