What they say

Client Testimonials

We  were so impressed with Trent. He went above and beyond what we expected without any complaints. Dealing with not very accommodating renters he still managed to pull off a timely sale for us. A  lot of realtors put their sign up and disappear. Not Trent he was always checking in and very easy to get a hold of if we needed anything.  He took a very stressful situation and made it easy for us! We highly recommend Trent he's very personable, friendly and he will get the job done.

Trent is an exceptional Realtor.
Although being a busy guy, he would always make time to answer my calls and cater to any requests I would throw his way. Nothing ever seemed to be too much for him. When approaching any problems or tasks, he would do his homework, taking time to collate as much information as possible so he could provide you with valuable insight to help you make key decisions.
He has a tremendous ability to get along with people, he was easy to work with, but more importantly, people find it easy to work with him. Meaning he is capable of dancing his way through tough negotiations and coming out smelling of roses. If you are looking for a Realtor, I highly recommend Trent, it's thank to him that I now own my dream home here in Nelson.

Trent is such an amazing realtor. From the moment I met him, he was honest and thorough. He always came prepared with printed detailed papers of the house I was viewing. He kept my best interest in mind. He was always punctual, positive and caring. When it came time to put an offer on the house (that I now own!), he was incredibly diligent, staying on task, keeping me informed at all times and keeping calm. I highly recommend Trent!! He is your guy!!

Trent has been fantastic to work with. He is a great communicator, really responsive, and we know that he only wants the best possible outcome for us. I was initially apprehensive working with a realtor as it was something completely new to me, but Trent explains things really clearly and is trustworthy, transparent and patient. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great experience and relationship with a realtor.

As a first-time home buyer, Trent went above and beyond to answer our questions, always making himself available to walk us through the process of purchasing our first home.  Working with us for over six months, his patience and personability was very appreciated, always making us feel comfortable and never pushing us to make an uncalculated decision. Ultimately, he led us through an offer that allowed us to buy our dream home. Trent is a fun, yet professional realtor that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thank you!

I really can't say enough good things.  I received a referral for Trent and he contacted me immediately. Being my first home sale, he was great at walking me through the process. His commission rates were lower than any other realtors I had spoken with, yet his communication and sales plan surpassed. I had tenants living in the home and Trent was courteous and professional with them, while still keeping my best interests in mind.
In the end, I sold the home to my tenants, in a private transaction. Not only was Trent supportive with me (even though he received no commission) he has helped guide me through the process of a private sale. But as it just happened to work out in my situation, he was was flexible and an absolute asset in every way. Even called a few weeks later to check in and see how things were going and if I needed any help or guidance. He seems to have a great handle on the real estate situation in Nelson and I really can't sing his praises enough.
Highly recommended
