Answered our many questions we had about procedures of making an offer and throughout the entire process to final closing. Was on top of the deadlines while sale pending. Great communication!! Thank you so much!! "

"Tricia went above and beyond all expectations. We had a limited window in which we could see houses and she lined up a full weekend for us. As first time home buyers coming from out of state, Tricia counseled us on what to look for, what was important, and what was a good value. She was always available if we had a question and reminded us when we had important dates coming up. She helped to make the home buying process a breeze!"
- Amanda and Robert Timm

"Tricia was our broker for both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home, and did an exceptional job from start to finish. When we first put our home on the market, she walked us through the entire process and gave us various options for listing, with no pressure to go with any one option. As we prepared our home for sale, Tricia was extremely helpful in suggesting and even arranging low-cost upgrades that greatly improved the appeal of our home. When we decided to list on the MLS, she explained all the marketing approaches she would use, and also arranged for a low-cost staging service and an excellent photographer to make our home look it’s best. We had many showings the first week after listing, and Tricia was great about communicating to us as these were being scheduled. Tricia also provided great service in purchasing our new home. She really sought to understand what we were looking for, and sought out homes in the neighborhood we were interested in. She was extremely efficient and timely in communicating information to us, and clearly laid out the deadlines we needed to meet in completing the offer, submitting objections, and preparing for closing. In short, we highly recommend Tricia to anyone who is looking for a personalized, professional and stress-free experience when buying or selling their home. "

"Being a first time home buyer (newly divorced) Tricia helped me to understand all the documents and terminology. She basically held my hand throughout the entire process. She’s a keeper! "
- Stephanie Campbell

"Tricia was easy to work with, responsive, enthusiastic about selling my home, and extremely knowledgeable about the local market. Her attention to detail and responsiveness to all of my questions won me over. She had at least 10 comps and she went over each one in detail and discussed why the price was higher or lower than mine and what factors let certain properties sit on the market for a while. Her marketing prowess and years of experience were valuable assets in getting my house under contract at higher than ask within a matter of days. She has the right combination of warm personality and business-like efficiency when needed. She had all the right connections to get the house painted & staged quickly and at a reasonable cost. She was willing to go the extra mile, whether it was putting in some of her own items and sweat equity into the staging, or helping my mother feel comfortable when she visited in the middle of the selling process. Tricia is extremely comfortable doing what she does and you get the sense that she’s found her calling in real estate. I had thought of going with one of those one percent firms that start with r but I’m glad I didn’t. I would not hesitate to recommend Tricia Dessel to my friends or neighbors who are looking to buy or sell a home. "
- David Schneider

"To say working with Tricia Dessel was a pleasure, is simply an understatement. Tricia is a quintessential professional who put my needs first and got very impressive results. Last spring, I put my beautiful condo on the market with another agent. Whether the timing or market, my condo sat for 4 months without any offers. From the recommendation of my previous realtor, I was introduced to Tricia. After one conversation, I expressed my goals in selling my condo and she heard me. I was beyond comfortable with Tricia and she filled me with utter confidence. In less than a week of taking me on as a client, Tricia created a stunningly constructed website to market my condo, Facebook advertisements and consulted other agents in the local area. At the time of partnering with Tricia, I was renting out my condo. Tricia worked with the current tenant for showings, communications with repairs and anything else needed. From her efforts, within two weeks, my condo had its first offer without even being officially put on the MLS. After two months of emotional ups and downs through the negotiations with other agents, Tricia was never wavering with my needs. She never sacrificed my intentions knowing this condo was my first home and it was such a sentimental and bittersweet parting. Not only was Tricia able to help me close on selling my condo within two months, my condo also sold for a significant amount over the asking price. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that Tricia and I never met before she took me on as a client. And most of our work was over the phone as I live out of state currently. From her diligent work, attention to detail and sincere care for me as a client, Tricia went from being a stranger to a dear friend (in only two months). I would recommend Tricia to any of my family or friends as a realtor; and someday, I hope to work with Tricia again to purchase my forever home! "

"Tricia did an outstanding job of selling our home. The pricing and timing were spot-on. In addition to conducting a comparative market analysis last fall, she provided excellent advice on staging our home and spared no expense on marketing, including hiring a drone photographer to take aerial shots of the neighborhood. The house was listed on a Wednesday night, and that weekend she hosted a three-day open house. The following Tuesday we received multiple offers and by the next day we were under contract for above our asking price. She and her team at CORE took care of every detail every step of the way. Throughout the process Tricia demonstrated a high level of preparation and professionalism. She works tirelessly and has a wonderful sense of humor. It was pleasure to work with her, and we recommend her highly. "
- Vick & Rob Czech

"Tricia has done an outstanding job of helping us get ready to put our house on the market. She prepared a thorough comparative market analysis, provided excellent advice on staging our home, arranged several preliminary showings, and gave us valuable feedback from those showings. She conducts herself in an extremely professional, warm and friendly manner, and we are excited to work with her as we progress through the next steps of selling our home. When I got approved for the loan I had no idea I would purchase within 45 days and that was due to Tricia Dessel. How wonderful she was from beginning to end. She was always on time for appointments and arrived with a smile on her face. Tricia was diligent in getting back to me quickly and always offered encouragement for the entire process. As a first time home buyer, I was really scared, but she eased my fears and hesitations, reassuring me along the way. I also now have a new friend and can't wait to make some more memories! "
