"Trent helped me both sell my home and purchase a new one. I appreciated how much he listened to my needs and he personally customized the listings he sent me, rather than just sending an email daily with numerous properties to sift through. He is attentive, goes above and beyond, and always has your side. I put complete trust in him and he did not let me down. I would recommend Trent to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. He called me about the place I purchased before it was even listed. I would never have gotten it otherwise because it would not have stayed on the market. He always keeps his clients in mind and has an eye for finding the hidden gems! Trent made the stressful process very easy and handled every step of it with ease."
"Trent is an awesome real estate agent running a top notch firm. I used Trent 9 years ago to buy my first home, 5 years ago to rent it and again this year to sell. He is very responsive and willing to help out even on little things to help maximize the deal. I sold my condo for $10K over what I was initially expecting thanks to his recommendations on pre-sale improvements and negotiation tactics. It is clear that he draws from his experience to make the best recommendations to his clients"
"Trent not only helped me through the typical process of selling a home, he went above and beyond to assist me with fixing the little things to get the place to close, finding reputable movers and housekeepers. All last minute things I needed help with. He was also instrumental in helping me get full price on my condo because he knew the market very, very well."
