For anyone looking for a real estate agent in SF Bay Area, I can say that there are none more efficiant, more reliable and more honest than Trish Ward. Trish has been my agent on three separate transactions, both on the buy and sell side. These transactions spanned the range of $900,000 to nearly $6 million. Each time she has been very accurate in her prospective assessment of market value for the property in question. Trish provides her honest assessment of the value of the property, even though it might not be exactly what a buyer or seller wants to hear. And her assessments I have found to be spot on.
Trish is easy to work with, is well connected with other agents in the area, and has her finger on the pulse of market trends. She is effective in finding new homes coming on the market, which is essential for an agent in this market. She is also very helpful in assisting a seller in getting a house prepared for sale so that maximum price can be reached.
I would not hesitate to use Trish in any future transactions and strongly recommend her as an agent in the SF Bay Area.
I want to say thank you again for your assistance with buying my first place. You made the process extremely simple and ensured I was understanding 100%, the entire time. You were also able to work around my very unique work schedule.
You also helped with selling my first place: you found people to make updated, and ensured the place was fully ready to go to get the best price. You helped with opening my place, and coordinating the workers with my again unique schedule. It worked, because we were able to sell above asking price!
It the end, a potentially stressful situation was easy to work through with your guidance. I can thank you enough for helping me with my first home, and helping me move onto my second.
I knew you would be the best realtor to assist my mom with her purchase of a property on the peninsula. Having been in Oregon for the past 18 years, she really didn’t know where to start but she definitely had a list of “must haves.”
You were extreamly diligent in your search of the best possible listings. You showed my mom and me all the options available. You listened to my mom and kept her very well informed throughout the whole process.
When the right place came along, you got us in to see the place and got all of the reports and disclosures to us immediately. With little time to spare, you were able to bring all the right people together to make this happen. Without your knowledge, expertise, and great reputation, this purchase may not have happened.
Even after the close of escrow, you helped my mom communicate with the management company, find licensed contractors, and even offered suggestions based on other units in the building. My mom has enjoyed making this place her very own.
Now she is ready to move in. I love seeing her enthusiam as she talks about the colors she chose, the flooring, and the carpeting. She’s coming alive again.
I know that she made a good investment by purchasing this condo in San Carlos. She made an even better investment in her new life by choosing you as a realtor. You’ve just been so helpful and continue to be so.

It’s been just over three months since you sold my mother’s home and I have yet to properly thank you. As I am sure you know, it was a very difficult time for my family. We feel really fortunate to have had you on our side, guiding us through a very cumbersome process. We enjoyed your warmth, knowledge, sincerity and unflappable exterior. More importantly, thank you for your persistence in finding a buyer for out house, particulaarly after the first buyer was unable to fulfill the terms of the original contract; you quickly found another, more financially viable buyer and successfully closed the deal.
I can’t begin to thank you for all of the work you put in to selling my mother’s home. Your efforts went over, above, and beyond what any client would expect. You definitely went many extra miles for us that I don’t think anyone else would have done. I am so grateful for your help. I know it was a hard case and you had to deal with some challenging personalities from my family, but you never let it faze you, in fact, I think it may have strengthened your resolve.You were put to the test and passed with flying colors! I was simply amazed at how you were able to seamlessly orchestrate all of the behind-the-scenes work, which included assembling and coordinating a cadre of contractors, stagers, inspectors, and maintenance personnel who worked well together with a single-mindedness of purpose you helped to instill.
Futhermore, you accomplished all of this within the constraints of a tight timeframe in which to close escrow in order to avoid foreclosure by the banks. In the midst f a stressful event, your talents, charm and warmth made the journey bearable. We are so happy the house sold, and I bet you are just as happy, if not more so, that this is behind us now. Thank you once again for your expertise and patience in seeing this through to the end. Your professional service, as well as your personal concern, were greatly appreciated. I will never forget all that you have done. We would not hesitate to ask for your services again and will wholeheartedly refer you to our family, friends, and anyone who asks us for a referral.
We picked Trish Ward as our realtor after an exhaustive search because of her time in the industry and her knowledge of the San Carlos area. Ours was an estate sale and we had plenty of work to do to prepare it for the market. Living in the East Bay it was imperative that I find a realtor with good project management skills. Trish was amazing in this role!!! She was a task-master who took no BS from contractors. Everything was done on time. Some of the contractors we used she recommended herself and they did beautiful work. She has a great network of tradesmen.
Trish kept in constant contact with us during the whole process. Our home was listed at a respectable price. We had multiple offers after one open house. We accepted an offer after 11 days. The house sold for a healthy $300k over asking.
Trish is very personable. I never felt pushed or rushed during the process and would recommend her in a heartbeat.
Thank you so much for the way you handled the sale of my home in San Carlos.
I moved to southern California right after I listed the property with you, yet you continued to communicate with me and kept me updated on a regular basis. There was less than four weeks between the time we listed the property with you and the date the sale closed. You took care of all the little details that allowed for a smooth and uneventful close. Because of your knowledge of the real estate market and your sales techniques, I was able to sell my home for 22% over the listing price.
Thanks again Trish.
Joan and I want to thank you for your representation as our agent in the recent sale of our one-bedroom condominium unit we owned in Granada on Chestnut Street.
Joan and I were delighted with the outcome which was in no small part owing to your fine work. We appreciated all of the recommendations you made to us regarding the contractors, painters, floor installation people and the designer who did the staging of the unit. We received a price well in excess of what we thought might be the case owing to the fact that one-bedroom, one-bath confominium units are a challenge to sell even in a very active real estate market.
We were impressed with prompt manner in which you handled all aspects of the transaction and kept us informed along the way. We will not hestiate to recommend you to anyone requiring a realtor. In that regardm I recently gave one of your cards to clients who, although currently renting out their home in Palo Alto, are contemplating a sale of it in the future.

I can't tell you how pleased I am with the way that you handled the sale of my house. From the first day we met to talk about this to the day I received the proceeds of the sale you were there for me with your support, advice, resources and professionalism. Since I am on my own and was working full time while getting ready to put this house on the market, I really dreaded the whole process, but you made everything so easy... just like clockwork.
I feel you went over and above the call of duty in every respect and the results prove this. Getting the house sold for above asking price, within less than 2 weeks of the time it was listed was beyond my wildest hopes. In addition, every service person (from the painters to the handyman to the stager) was outstanding.
I would definitely come to you for any future real estate transactions and would be happy to give my personal testimonial to any future clients of yours.
Trish Ward helped my fiancé and I purchase our first home together in October 2013. She was extremely professional, detail oriented and always readily available. At the time of our purchase, Trish also assisted with the sale of my condo located in a different county. Handling a sale and a new purchase was extremely stressful, but having her in my corner helped to reduce my stress levels. Trish is a great friend and a wonderful realtor. She treats her clients as if they were members of her family. She is who I would turn to for future sales and purchases. I highly recommend Trish for your real estate needs. Always, Jalina and Arturo

Just a note to say a huge thank you for all your help with the purchase of our new home. You have proven to be a wonderful partner throughout the whole experience: learning about our personal foibles and preferences over many viewings; providing thoughtful and robust guidance in relation to neighborhoods and individual properties; acting as a tenacious and tireless negotiating part; and guiding us through the unfamiliar process of house finance and purchase in the US. Moving forwards, we will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and colleagues and look forward to welcoming you into our new home in the very near future. Kind regards
Dr. and Mrs. M. Hollier
