"We have worked with several realtors in the last 30 years and have never had such a positive experience. Tricia is a class act, cares about her clients, and makes sure she does everything she can for you. She knows the market, understands strategy, and is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. This was the BEST experience we have ever had and we are completely impressed with every aspect of her process. We would never buy or sell a home with anyone else."
-J & K Severson

"Tricia is a consummate realtor and is very knowledgeable, efficient and professional. We have purchased six homes over the last decades and she is one of a kind. She is very affable, knowledgeable, and good at assessing our needs for a new home. Always available and helpful with any questions we had. She gets things done and is very professional; She never leaves requests unanswered or a task undone. She has been a pleasure to work with and we greatly value her unbiased advice."
-Anu K. & Mihkel H.

"Over the last 25 years I've transferred back and forth from Colorado numerous times. Even with the experience of purchasing 4 homes, selling 4 homes, and building a custom home; I'll be the first to admit that real estate transactions are a heavy burden. As a seller I've wondered, "Did I leave money on the table", and as a buyer I've thought, "Did I pay too much". I just made my 6th real estate transaction with the assistance of Tricia Dessel. The greatest endorsement of Tricia that I can share is the fact that she handled the entire process for my wife and me while we were 1,800 miles away. From property search, to price negotiation, through closing was done in our absence. It was a flawless and stress free process."
- A. Hoag

"Tricia guided us during the sale of our condo and purchase of a new home in a very fast-paced real estate market. Her expert assistance was essential in preparing our condo to go to market - her contacts to re-paint the interior and expertly stage, were a tremendous asset to ensuring a move-in-ready sale! The home had an offer in less than 24 hours and went under contract within less than 48 hours of going on the market. Tricia's expert knowledge of the local market helped us to quickly hone in on the exact home that met our needs. She helped us to craft a strong offer and we are very excited to be moving into our new home after her expert advice guided us during offer, inspection, and on through to closing! We would not hesitate to recommend Tricia to anyone looking to buy or sell. We greatly appreciated her attention to detail, quick responsiveness, and personal touch."
-M. Williams & W. Luszczek

"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 T.

"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."
-Doris and Chris M.

"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 S.

"Tricia is highly professional, extremely responsive (working nights and weekends to get the job done), and genuine. She was a good listener to our needs and requests and took them to heart when helping negotiate the transaction. We highly recommend her. Tricia was very knowledgeable, communicative, and available through the process. She addressed all of our questions. She is also personable and just nice to be around as we work out details."
-Sierra and Carl E.

"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!"
-Vernica J.R.

"We sold our home with Tricia and could not have been happier working with her! If you want an agent that understands the vagaries of the market, does her homework, represents your property as though it were her own, responds in a timely fashion to your needs and will hold your hand through the process, we highly recommend Tricia. In short if you’re looking for a representative that brings the right mix of knowledge, instinct, business acumen and warmth to the process, Tricia Dessel of CORE Residential should be your next call."
-Kierstin & Ian S.

"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 C.

"Tricia Dessel is a dedicated realtor who has a sincere passion and excitement for real estate. Throughout all aspects of our sale, she was professional, responsive and personable. Tricia provided valuable insight regarding all aspects of the sale from her marketing strategy, home preparation suggestions and negotiations. Tricia excelled in attaining all of our requirements and she competently worked through logistics and kept us informed at every step. Tricia absolutely has her clients best interest at heart and will go the extra mile to ensure a smooth process and a successful outcome. It is our pleasure to highly recommend Tricia for your real estate needs."
-Bridget & Scott B.

"Tricia was amazing throughout the whole process! She took the time to get to know me and understand what I was looking for in a home. When the first house that I was interested in didn't work out she already had a backup in mind that ended up being the perfect place for me. Wonderful experience working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone else!"
-M. Epperson

"Tricia is very thorough and detailed in her approach to the housing market. Her follow through regarding the numerous & inevitable challenges to a timely closing was greatly appreciated. Any home Purchaser or Seller would be well served to have Tricia as a trusted advisor."
-Gary C.

"Tricia was helping and guiding me on the process of buying a home in the Boulder area, Must say that i found her extremely professional and knowledgeable in the housing market in General and specifically in the Boulder area housing market. She went far and beyond to find the right home including taking me for showing as soon as the houses appears on the MLS I would love to recommend Tricia for anyone who is looking for a home in Boulder CO Thank you Tricia Nikhil Barzilai."
-Nikhil B.

"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."
–Seller

“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!"
-Pam Turpin

"Tricia is highly recommended. She went above and beyond helping us find our dream Cabin. We weren’t sure what we wanted, no problem. We weren’t sure where we wanted to land, no problem. She patiently took us to any property we were interested in viewing. Our price point was not the Taj Mahal, yet she never made us feel as if our dream was not her priority. As a woman, who was spearheading this purchasing process with little knowledge of the steps needed to complete a purchase, Tricia tirelessly explained each step, let me know what to expect, provided the right amount of counsel and support without ever making me feel pressured. She explained real estate lingo and process, what to be aware of and leery of in looking at some of these “non-traditional” properties. In the end, it was her skill at writing the contract that helped us win the bid for what is now OUR fabulous new cabin. She is an excellent communicator, will work tirelessly for you, is highly professional. Working with Tricia was a great pleasure."
-Kathy Barnum

"Tricia has gone over and beyond for her clients. We are professional organizers hired by Tricia to help her clients prepare to sell their home. She helps her clients every step of the way from listing the home to recommendations for preparing the home to get top dollar. We look forward to working with Tricia in the future!"
-Theresa F.

"Tricia’s profesional and steady guidance impressed me. I was highly benefited by her knowledge of the area as well. I enjoyed the journey due to Tricia and she made me smile. She was available and present."
-Grace Y.

"Tricia is extremely knowledgeable about the Boulder Denver Metro area. Always available to discuss any issues, her guidance and expertise was indispensable during my home purchase process."
-Ed D.

About Tricia

In this uniquely competitive market, you need a technology driven, resourceful Realtor to differentiate your home, elevate its value or discover a home to purchase before it comes on the market.

I help you to better understand the housing market, anticipate trends, see the unseen value, and uncover hidden property challenges whether buying or selling a home. I use my contract skills to craft a winning offer and strongly negotiate on your behalf. I understand that this may be the most important financial investment of your life.

Creating trusted relationships with my clients and community isn’t just something I say, it’s what I do. I’ve lived in Boulder for 30 years, went to CU, raised my family here, and continue to commit myself to volunteering in the community. My most successful transactions are a result of trust, aligned values and consistently going above and beyond to create great outcomes together.

My clients appreciate my consummate professionalism, acute attention to detail, responsiveness, organization, expert guidance and enthusiasm. I fully understand the stresses and challenges of moving. I provide steadfast support during the transition.

I will dedicate myself to preparing your home for sale like it is my own or help you find a house that feels like “home.” 

I have one clear goal: providing unparalleled concierge-level service and expert guidance throughout the home buying or selling process. Here is a testament to that goal:

 
"As most of you know we sold our home and moved out of Red Fox Hills this past weekend.  While we are sad to be leaving the neighborhood (and especially our amazing cul de sac) we are excited for this new chapter in our lives.  We wanted to send a shout out to publicly acknowledge Tricia Dessel and her amazing professionalism and dedication to her craft.  We did not have the opportunity to get to know Tricia very well while living in Red Fox Hills, but we knew enough about her drive and work ethic generally so she is the person we called when we decided to sell our home.  
We have bought and sold several homes throughout our lives and we have never had the privilege of feeling completely confident in and continually impressed by our realtor.  Tricia is a stand out!  From the very beginning of our buying & selling process it was obvious she knew the real estate business and had in-depth knowledge of the Boulder real estate market.  She constantly surprised us with all of the systems she has in place to market your home effectively and get in sold for the best price possible.  She always made sure to take care of us and was constantly looking to protect our interests.  Tricia is the real deal and we feel so blessed to have had her by our side while selling our home and buying our new home.  If you or anyone you know is even thinking about selling your home, Tricia is the person you want by your side.  We can’t speak highly enough about her.  Her professionalism, knowledge, compassion and dedication is rare and we wanted to make sure our beloved neighborhood knows what a gem is living right down the street!"
