Trish Sterling helped us to sell our home in the Bryan Park neighborhood. The photos and language she used in the promotional materials highlighted the features of our historic home perfectly. It was truly a pleasure to work with Trish. After the home inspection, she helped us to identify trusted contractors to complete estimates and perform work on the home. She was very professional and offered sound advice when we were working through the negotiations and closing process with the buyer and buyer's agent who were confrontational and could have made the process very difficult without Trish's involvement. We highly recommend Trish; she treats people with respect and has a high degree of integrity. Less ... More

Trish Sterling is a consummate professional in real estate. She equalled or exceeded our highest expectations and needs in all aspects of the property acquisition. Our requirements were atypical in space, cost, and location and she was able to identify a number of suitable properties. Special factors related to the buyers made negotiations very difficult and Trish provided strong guidance throughout this rather painful process with great expertise and patience. Even after closing, Trish continued to work with us dealing with contractor referrals, utilities, and community issues. She makes herself available to us even now and has become a neighbor on who we can rely. We fully recommender her with the strongest confidence. Less ... More

Showed me some purchase homes as well as rental homes. We eventually went with a rental, but will work with Trish when we are ready to buy. She knows the Bloomington market well.

Trish helped us with the emotionally taxing process of downsizing, selling our beautiful Bloomington home of 37 years and finding a comparable smaller home in the right Bloomington neighborhood. She gained our trust by not pushing higher priced homes and with her honest, candid evaluations of any property issue presenting itself. She was a most intuitive and personable guide, an attentive listener, understanding our needs and - as a result - presenting us with homes that were good fits. She was patient and respectful of our personal decision making pace, yet surprisingly swift in completing the entire process within just half a year. In addition, she was willing to go into all details of the moving process from taxes to utility issues to remodeling estimates. And she was able to make valuable connections with appropriate services in town. Most of all, Trish was an impressive negotiator and a swift, creative problem solver, understanding how to navigate the simultaneous buying and selling process. It was a relief entrusting ourselves into her professional care. We have meanwhile happily completed our move and Trish has become an ongoing resource and a friend. We recommend her highly as a most exceptional realtor. Less ... More

Trish was a lifesaver for us. We were unfamiliar with Bloomington, and she was so helpful in giving us local and neighborhood information. She was also very patient, as we went through countless houses that were close to what we wanted but not that "absolutely perfect" one -- and because of Trish, we found that perfect house! We also appreciated her respect for and understanding of our wishes, regarding type of house, type of neighborhood, financial limits, etc. She never steered toward houses outside of our preferences or price range She is a friendly, intelligent, and highly professional person to work with, and we strongly recommend her.

Trish was an amazing, knowledgeable, hard-working, and dedicated realtor for us. We were new to town and moving from very far away. She and her team made everything simpler for us. She helped us navigate negotiations with sellers, took us on countless house viewings, and worked with us every day on even the smallest details as much as we needed her. She made our move-in day very special and heartwarming with extra touches of personal gifts and made us feel right at home in our new house. Even after our move, we still go to Trish for help with local recommendations for services and just to chat with a good friend. We highly recommend her for anything one could need with the moving process. Less ... More

Trish Sterling has helped us get into two homes in the past 10 years. She's very good at learning about her clients and what they like - every family member. She knows the area and is great to recommend a variety of options that help us think through long term implications of each purchase. We greatly respect her opinions and trust that she answers our questions with candor and professionalism - even when it isn't to her benefit. She works very hard to be sure all details are handled, and makes the process easy for us. We always enjoy seeing and working with Trish and will use her for any future real estate transactions. We highly recommend her to friends and colleagues looking to buy or sell in the Bloomington, Indiana area. Less ... More

I'm so glad I had Trish to help me through this process. She's very knowledgeable about both the area and the process, so I could rely on her information and suggestions. She's also extremely honest, so I felt that I could trust her advice. She worked very hard to help me find a home that met my needs--in fact, she went above and beyond to help me. I recommend her highly!

Trish is literally the best of the best. She was recommended to us by a friend and I literally couldn't have imagined a better experience from start to finish. If you're looking for a Realtor in the Bloomington area, you can stop looking, you've found the best. Our home was older and she helped us navigate process completely. Her response time was always very fast and I never felt like we were in a lurch waiting for information. Her advice was great and I really felt like she was selling this home as if it were her own. We ended up with a cash offer for our asking price - can't ask for much better than that! Less ... More

We just moved from New Jersey to Bloomington and are absolutely thrilled with the home Trish helped us find and buy. She listened to our needs and found us a perfect home. We were on a very tight schedule, and she absolutely bent over backward to meet our needs. We were worried about being able to close within 30 days, but every professional she recommended to us, from mortgage brokers to inspectors to structural engineers were absolutely wonderful. Her negotiating suggestions were spot-on, as well. We would recommend Trish to family and friends with no reservations whatsoever. Less ... More

Trish was seriously amazing from start to finish! I would recommend her to anyone!! We were first time sellers and had no idea what we were doing, but Trish made us feel comfortable with every step. She also did an amazing job marketing our house! Our house went on the market on a Tuesday and by Thursday we had an offer!! It was that offer that led us to close on our house December 2nd! If you're looking for a realtor who knows what she's doing and will look out for your interests all the way, then Trish is the one for you!!!! Less ... More

My wife and I had such an amazing experience with Trish. She always kept us notified of updates as we were searching for a home, and when we found one her negotiations allowed us to get what we wanted and buy a great home! She was kind enough to educate us as first time home buyers on what to look for and stay away from when looking for a home. So glad we had her on our team. Can't say enough great things...HIGHLY RECOMEND!

Trish through her extensive network of contacts, took a home that had been sitting on the market for 12 months to sold within 18 months within 1% of the asking price! Her creativity and willingness to go the extra mile made all the difference.

As first time homebuyers, we were inexperienced and so indecisive. Trish was patient with us as we looked at a large number of homes. Thanks to her, we found the right house. One of the reasons we chose to work with Trish was that she was recommended by friends. The reason she continued to be an excellent match was her efficiency (response to emails mostly automatic and knowledge in advance of properties). Every step of the way, Trish was educating us without being condescending or partial, she was even a great comfort to us when we were negotiating and when we were closing. We learned a lot and found the right home, the right price, and at the right time for our family. We would highly recommend her to friends and acquaintances. Less ... More

With short notice, we had to relocate and sell our home fast. Trish responded quickly and handled all the details including clean-up and repairs. She accurately priced the property ;marketing was extensive and effective. We had a buyer within six weeks and she closed the sale for us within 84 days of listing. Trish is fabulous!

Trish Sterling was a pleasure to work with. She helped us to get a good contract on our sale property within just a couple weeks of taking over the listing. She worked with us from out of state and responded to calls, text messages and emails quickly and with clear and accurate answers. Trish gives a personal touch which was not present with our previous listing agency. She treats her clients with respect and dignity and it shows that she understands that selling a home can be a very stressful and tiring process. She does a wonderful job helping to alleviate those stresses by helping out when and where she can. For example she did some touch-up painting in our house so that we would not have to make a 10 hour round trip to do it ourselves among many other great things that she did to help. Less ... More

We used Trish as our Realtor this past Spring as we moved to Bloomington, Indiana. I would recommend Trish to anyone moving to Bloominton, Indiana and surrounding area. Her knowledge of the market is extensive, at all price points. She worked and fought very hard for us and we were extremely happy with her services. In fact, Trish and our family have become great friends!! I believe this is probably the best recommendation one can offer and attests to Trish's professionalism!!
