I?ve known Tricia since 2006. During that time she has helped me with various real estate projects and unlike many realtors, she takes her profession very seriously, always giving your property the professional attention that anyone buying or selling would want in a realtor. That combined with her fun personality, integrity, honesty, and courtesy makes her my first choice for a realtor in the Salt Lake Valley area. You will not be disappointed with her services, and I believe my opinion matters as I?ve dealt with many properties and many realtors state wide since 1999. Less ... More

Tricia sold our house in South Jordan. We had talked to 3 previous real estate agents and she was by far the easiest to work with. She sold the house quickly and kept in constant contact with us as we went through the process.

We could not have had a better experience finding a home with Tricia. She met us the first time on short notice in the dark as both my wife and I work in health care and have crazy schedules. She was always prompt in returning calls or texts and was ready to adjust on the fly to our crazy demands. When we started our search we weren't sure what we really wanted and our ideas ranged from mountain cabin to more traditional suburban homes. She met me multiple times up snowy canyons and always seemed happy to do so. She always was happy and willing to work for us to help us with our busy schedules. One day we asked to see a number of homes but at 10pm the night before I sent an email asking if about half could be changed. She replied immediately that she would try and the next day we saw the updated list. Ultimately, we narrowed our search to a couple homes in the Salt Lake area and were putting in offers when she gently suggested we look at one more. By this time she could sense our tastes and we are now living in the home she found. Throughout the whole process I had no doubt that she had our best interests at heart and worked to protect us in every way, helping us navigate strategy, negotiations, paperwork, etc. Lastly, she made the whole process incredibly easy and enjoyable. Everything from signing documents on my iphone to working around our schedule really made this a great experience. I unreservedly give Tricia my highest recommendation to family, friends and anyone else looking for a home in Utah. Less ... More

Looking at Zillow, I found a condo that looked promising and chose using Tricia without any references. She answered our call and made the appointment that day. It was not the one for us and over several weeks Tricia showed us more than 20. She was easy to contact and kept looking for a good prospect and quickly got us into see each possibility. We appreciated her candor and expertise as we evaluated each home. When we did find a beautiful condo in the area we wished to locate, she helped us negotiate the offer and put the deal together. We will definitely recommend her. Less ... More

If I could give Tricia 6 stars I would. She is hands down the BEST agent you will ever have the pleasure of working with. She is honest, knowledgeable and is quick to respond to any and all needs. She even worked for us on her New Year's vacation, that is dedication! I will be recommending Tricia to any of my friends, family or acquaintances who are in need of a realtor.

My husband and I were looking to sell our home as we were relocating out of state. Once we met with Tricia, we were thoroughly convinced that she was the one. She was extremely helpful and aggressively sold it with great charisma. She is an excellent person to communicate with. The home sale would not have been possible without her expertise. We highly recommend her services. Tricia is a joy to work with.

Tricia is very professional and always quick to respond to emails or calls. As an out of town seller who's often traveling and out of reach I was concerned about making this work, but Tricia was very comfortable with that situation and great about using email and DocuSign when possible to facilitate communication and signing documents. Her first two suggestions for the list price were too high, but she kept tabs on the market and was attentive to feedback from prospective buyers, generated an updated list of comps convincing me to hold fast when I got a lowball offer, and suggested counter-offer terms that would ensure a smooth closing process. In the end I sold at a reasonable price about six months after listing--not bad considering the off-season listing and the vagaries of the 2013 real estate market. Less ... More

Tricia was wonderful to work with. She answered all of our (many) questions and helped us understand the whole process as first time home buyers. She also was very patient with us not quite knowing what we wanted in a house, and and put up with us changing our criteria and helped us figure out what was best for us. She is very knowledgeable and also very prompt in emailing/calling/texting us back when we wanted to see a listing or had questions. She is positive and friendly; both able to be very supportive through our difficulties with lenders and also able to keep up with our family's sarcastic wit. We knew we could count on Tricia and would highly recommend her. Less ... More

I found Tricia on the recommendation from a friend - i had a tricky situation, in that I was living in NYC and shopping for a place (through my fiance) in Utah. As such, Tricia had to pull double duty showing places first to my fiance, then to me on the weekends when I could get to Utah. She was always willing to accommodate my schedule (nights/weekends) and extremely friendly and knowledgeable through the process. She was also interested in making sure I found the right place, and she was vigilant about issue spotting problems with candidate houses. Despite getting all the way to the alter with one house before pulling the plug as a result of inspection issues, she remained enthusiastic and eager to help. As a first time home buyer, I was thrilled to have someone represent me whom I felt very good about. Less ... More

How did I get so lucky to find Tricia Vanderkooi as my real estate professional. Tricia was amazing to work with. When I first interviewed Tricia to sell my home she was very knowledgeable and helpful. She explained to me in detail what I needed to do in order to get what I wanted for my home. One of the areas I needed to work on was to get my carpet stretched. I am a single woman working full time and Tricia offered her time to meet the carpet stretcher at my home and assist him for at least 5 hours while I was at work. She went above and beyond. Tricia marketed my house within the time frame she told me she would. Everything Tricia said she would do for me she did. My house sold very quickly. I could always rely on her. Anytime I had a question or needed to talk, she always responded back right away either by text messaging , email or phone. I will recommend Tricia to my friends looking to either sell or buy a new home. I will use her again in the future. Less ... More

Tricia did an absolutely perfect job in selling my house. I would highly recommend having her on your side. I had a particularly complicated sale, because I had to go through a relocation company, which meant lots of extra paper work, repairs, and on-site inspections. Tricia was very gracious about handling all the work, and kept all the appontments on track.. She personally took care of a mini-flood in my basement, which saved me money on a plumber. When I had a hoime inspection report indicate some suspect plunbing parts, that could have jeapoardized the sale, she had already scheduled an inspector, before I even got the notice, which kept the closing date on schedule. She saved me money by pointing necessary and unnecessary repairs, and recommending I take some appliances I was otherwise going to leave with the house. The photo spread of the house looked amazing, and Coldwell Banker pays a few extra bucks to get prominent positions on-line, so the advertising was solid.. The negotiations went smooth. I benefitted from a hot market, so I had two offers on my place in the first day and ended up with 20k more than my asking price. Overall, Tricia was pleasant and professional. Less ... More

After listing the property, she was actively engaged in being proactive to make sure my property was noticed. She followed through with other agents who showed the property for feedback and interest. When we made changes on the listing, she immediately contacted all those who had previously shown interest in the property. When an offer was received, she explained it to me thoroughly, giving me her thoughts and feedback on the offer. She continued to stay involved all the way through the closing.

We were looking to buy a home this year and did not have any realtor in mind, so we read the realtor reviews on Zillow. We selected Tricia, based on previous reviews- in particular one mentioning how easy she made the whole process. We had been anxious about whether we could find a place we liked and could afford in the area we wanted to live and were not looking forward to the house hunting process when we met Tricia. When we walked out of her office after the first meeting we were so excited- Tricia was great! She helped us feel positive and confident about our prospects. She quickly learned what we were looking for and tailored our search accordingly- we found our perfect place after only a week! There were three other offers on the property the same day it was listed, but Tricia got our offer in first and knew just what to do to make it strong. We had a very quick closing and the mortgage broker she recommended (Dave Ramsay) worked very well with us and Tricia to get everything taken care of smoothly and quickly. The whole experience worked out extremely well and we would highly recommend working with Tricia for your real estate needs. Less ... More

As a first time home buyer and being a new resident to Utah I was nervous about what to expect in terms of homes, neighborhoods and the type of service I would get when trying to buy a home. After reading some reviews on Agents I decided to reach out to Mrs. Vanderkooi about some homes I was interested in. Boy am I glad I did! From day one Tricia understood exactly what I wanted and provided me with 5 star service. Since this was all new to me, Tricia explained everything from neighborhoods, home types, good and bad features of the homes, etc. She was attentive to all of my needs and responded to all of my questions so fast I barely got my phone back in my pocket. Due to my work schedule I had very little time to see homes, get a loan or even sign a piece of paper. Tricia understood this and made the process very easy and it did not get in the way of my work. She even met me early in the morning to do me a favor and drop off my W2's at the Mortgage Broker's office, since I had an 8am meeting. She made sure I got the best deal on the home by telling me where I can get money off, what I should ask for. She has a great rolodex of Inspectors, Insurance Agents and Loan Officers that also provide great service. They got me the best rates and were thorough in there jobs. I can truly say she curated a buying experience that I could have never expected. Before closing the seller was having the sewer line re-done and when the potential of the job might be bigger Tricia got on the phone and handled it. I had no need to worry, she made sure everything was on schedule and even sent me photo's of the jobs progress! The day after I closed there was an issue with the gas company. Tricia got in her car and came right to my new home. Without knowing exactly what the problem was and seeing how stressed I was, Tricia was on the phone with a HVAC contractor and getting to the bottom of it. She was ready to take action and had an HVAC technician on standby to come by, on top of that she was going to take care of it for me. She already did so much and didn't have to help, but she did! She did everything possible to make this experience easy and stress free. I can't say enough about how impressed I am with her service. It is very rare to see this level of service anymore, let alone someone who cares about there clients and profession so much. I am happy to recommend Tricia and can honestly say you will not be disappointed. Less ... More

Our experience with Tricia has been nothing but excellent in all areas of Real Estate. She has helped us in both purchasing and selling homes. Her understanding and knowledge of the real estate market was extremely helpful for our being able to make final decisions that involved significant amounts of money. Tricia was very good at understanding what our personal desires and needs were in the process of purchasing our home. She clearly worked hard to find a home to fit the needs of our family rather than trying to talk us into purchasing a home just to make a sale. During the process of both selling and buying, she was always prompt on appointments, stayed in constant communication, and kept us current on everything that was happening. We never had to call her wondering what was going on. She has a good understanding of both the legal and technical aspects of Real Estate Contracts.

When I first met with Tricia it was in her office with an overhead of local listings. Over the next hour or so we explored different options and eventually came up with the townhome that seemed the best fit. We were able to see the place that evening and within a week or so after some negotiation we had a contract. I was amazed how by just asking the right questions and showing the right places Tricia was able to lead me to the perfect home for me. At the start I had no idea what I was really looking for. Tricia was very proactive on all the things that needed to be done. There was never a delay on her side and she prodded me as needed to get my work done. She also coordinated with the mortgage company to make sure everything was in order. It's been a while since I went through the process and it's become very complex.

Over the past five years, we have worked with Tricia in the sale of two homes, and the purchase of one home. Prior to finding Tricia, we had worked with a number of other agents through the years (yes, we've moved around a little too much), but now we would never consider going with anyone else. There are many things about Tricia that have impressed the socks off us. First, she is a truly likeable person. Especially during the buying process, you tend to spend a lot of time with your agent, so it's nice to have one that you actually enjoy being with. Tricia is that kind of person. She's genuine, friendly, smart, and highly knowledgeable in all aspects of the local real estate market. With her, you don't feel patronized; you just feel like you're talking to a good friend or family member. Tricia is a skilled negotiator, both on the buying and selling end, yet always conducts herself with the highest integrity. Honesty is an important part of who she is, and we have always trusted her completely. She has a keen intuition that comes from many years in the business, and an instinct that makes her an invaluable advocate to have in your corner. We are very pleased to recommend Tricia to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a home. In fact, we have referred her to several family members, whom have had equally positive experiences with her. Less ...

We found us a realtor and started the house buying process. We looked with our realtor for approximately 9 months to the point where we had enough. We were referred to the wonderful Tricia VanderKooi and now I call her my hero! She was so dedicated and took so much pride in her work that it took her just ONE short month to find us our home. She did everything the first realtor didn't and went above and beyond our expectations!! We look forward to working with Tricia in the future because after meeting her I wouldn't want any other realtor. Tricia is simply the best && deserves a galaxy of stars!! Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
I am not usually one to give five-stars to anything but Tricia certainly deserves it. She is extremely knowledgeable and is by far the best real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She really cares about what is best for your particular situation. Although our short sale didn't go through, she was masterful and diligent at negotiating for us as hard as she could. I would recommend her to anyone and plan to do so anytime I hear of someone who needs a good agent. She is someone you can trust and rely on. Less ... More

My husband and I met Tricia about two years ago and have worked with her off and on frequently during that time. We can highly recommend her as a real estate agent. She is very knowledgable about the market, handles transactions very professionally, and quickly responds to any requests we make of her. She is amazingly patient as she has worked with very picky buyers. She never pressures a buyer and is loyal to those she represents as an agent. We would not think of hiring anyone else.

Helped me buy home
Tricia was very comfortable and pleasant to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable about each area and time frames and interest of everything we asked. She never pushed anything but knew what we really wanted so when something became available on such short notice we moved as quickly as possible and she guided us through likely obstacles where she didn't even hesitate and made it seem so simple. Several people wanted our home, but with her guidance, we were able to purchase our dream home because she was on top of every detail before it was too late. Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
Tricia recently helped me complete a short sale on my home. The process was quick and painless. She had mulitple offers within the first week of the house being listed, and the entire process happened so quickly I was amazed. She walked me through the whole process and was always there to answer questions I had when I was uncertain of what the next steps were.

Listed and sold a home
The first time I met Tricia, I knew that we would be in good hands. She listened to our story, empathized and stood confident at a time for my wife and I when we were at a real low. She never pulled any punches, we had honest, timely communication through the whole process of selling our home. There was the good, the bad and more than once the ugly that popped up. She never waivered, never flinched just did her job and then went beyond my expectations. Our closing was in December 2011, as we wait for our situation to improve with anticipation of purchasing our next home there is only one name that comes to mind, Tricia VanderKooi, The Real Estate Professional! I am grateful to you Tricia, you'll be hearing from us! Matt B. Less ... More

Tricia is patient, listens to the client?s needs, and goes well "beyond the call of duty". She brings great knowledge and tenacity to the negotiations table. Tricia can multitask and bring ?calm? to any volatile situation making you feel you have the best agent representation. I would highly recommend Tricia for any of your real estate needs.
