For most of her adult life, Trish has been directly involved in real estate transactions either as a broker or as an attorney.  Prior to becoming a licensed attorney in 1989, Trish listed and sold real estate in the Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach area.  As an attorney in the Triangle area, she has represented numerous clients in entity formation, land development and commercial and residential real estate closings; and for eight years taught Real Estate Law for the Duke University paralegal certification program.  Trish also served as the Corporate Risk Manager for one of the most successful real estate companies in the Triangle, handling legal issues and representing real estate agents regarding Real Estate Commission complaints.  Additionally, she was the Managing Broker for five branch offices, creating a deep appreciation for so many committed, talented brokers.  Her vast experience has given her the unique opportunity to see real estate with a multi-faceted perspective.  Trish considers it a privilege to have counseled and worked with some of the most professional, service driven brokers in the area, and an honor to participate in serving the broker community along with their clients in the process of home ownership.

In her spare time, Trish enjoys her wonderful family and friends, painting, yoga, and her precious Westie, Sassy.
