Trinkie Watson Reveals the Most Common Hiccup in Finding a Perfect Home

Haute Residence

Trinkie Watson1) What is the most common hiccup you encounter when trying to find the perfect home for a client, and what is your typical approach to overcoming it?

Inventory—or lack thereof!  When we have trouble finding the perfect home for clients, we show them things they would not think to look at (within their price range). Sometimes a “remodel project” can create the property they are searching for. Another tactic is to monitor.  We monitor the MLS, pocket listings and communication with other agents to seek out that perfect property and get the showing before anyone else. The most time consuming approach is waiting! This is a hard avenue to stroll down, but sometimes it is best—especially if clients are looking in the “off season.” I do not recommend showing property that is above their desired price point until they raise the bar.

2) Real estate agents are expected to be absolute experts on their respective regions. What steps do you take in order to ensure you know positively all that you need to in order to keep your clients well informed?

I know Lake Tahoe! Having sold real estate for over 30 years, I stay informed. My continuing education in the real estate field has earned me the prestigious Certified International Property Specialist designation as well as Certified Residential Brokerage Manager, Certified Residential Specialist, Leader Graduate Training (Women’s Council) and Graduate Realtors Institute. I was also the president of the Incline Village Board of Realtors and president of the Tahoe Sierra Multiple Listing Service, and awarded Incline Village’s Realtor of the Year.

My community service includes two two-year stints as president of the Lake Tahoe Music Festival and current board membership, membership of the Tahoe Forest Hospital Foundation’s board, and chairmanship of the Cancer Advisory Council. stay current with the governing boards of the area as well as community and informative events. Attending events, conferences, festivals, music series, movie series, all help to keep me informed on the community.
