Hi Trish,

We all want to thank you again for your help and guidance on our recent townhome purchase in the Tam. This is our second time working with you and both have been fabulous. Your knowledge, honesty, availability and follow up are superior. We live 1,400 miles from the Tam and you and your team made it as easy to close the deal as if we were there. You, Bryn and Amerititle were all great as we closed in a matter of weeks. As with our property you helped us with 3 years ago and now this one the professionalism and friendly service is second to none. Tamarack is fortunate to have such a great Real Estate Pro and Ambassador working in their community.

Take care and see you soon!! 😀

Trisha from Tamarack Realty was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. She offered excellent advice, never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. I was impressed with her goal-oriented action. The best part was that she obtained a good price on my cottage soon after listing. Trisha knows the Tamarack market. She is very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with.

“The knowledge Trish maintains about Tamarack Resort is unparalleled. She not only knew a lot about the surrounding area, but shared great insights about the specific property as well as the resort in which it resides. We got exactly what we wanted and felt that our transaction was handled with the utmost level of professionalism and diligence. Tamarack is a truly remarkable place. It’s fortunate to have a remarkable agent like Trish onsite to help prospective buyers turn dreams into realities.”

“Trisha Sears of Tamarack Realty is topnotch and I would recommend her any day of the week. She is not only a professional but went out of her way to accommodate our busy and limited schedule to view properties and complete paperwork throughout the buying process. There is nothing she doesn’t know about the area or doesn’t make an effort to find out–we are thrilled both with her service and our new home at Tamarack Resort! Thank you, Trisha”

Dear Trisha,

I just needed to reach out and say thank you for helping me with the purchase of our amazing little Cottage in Tamarack. It was honestly the easiest purchase ever. Your attention to detail with the paperwork and managing the punch list items was top notch. A big thanks for providing me with all my contacts that were needed up there as well. Furthermore, all the people who help you do what you do, really care about the success of you, your business, and Tamarack.

After I sold my first home in Tam back in 2009 (thank you again Trisha) it was so heartbreaking to leave. But Tamarack has always been in our hearts. We were still coming back a few times a year, staying with friends or renting a house. It was about time we bought our own place again! We did look at a few other resorts but there was nothing like this special little place. People would always ask me, do I like it better in the winter or summer? They are both the best. I realized I don’t have to decide.

There is something about this little Village that we just love. It’s the people that come here that make it a community. It is hard to describe. It’s just great.   I love being back in gorgeous Tamarack. I am so glad to be back in the TAM FAM.

Best regards,

Trisha was amazing to work with. She was professional, responsive, and understanding. She turned out to be a real partner in what turned out to be an unexpectedly difficult, exhaustive, and sophisticated process.

Due to various complexities in our personal finances at the time…her patience (with us) and negotiating skills with the Seller proved crucial in extending the closing 5 or 6 times…and ultimately closing the deal. I am confident that we would not have secured our target property with any other real estate agent. It is the first time I have been involved in a real estate transaction where I felt like my agent’s commission was insufficient.

I have been involved in 15-20 real estate transactions over the last 5 years, and Trisha’s industry knowledge, creativity, and persistence is unparalleled. I recommend her without any reservation and you should count yourself lucky if you’re able to secure her services!

Ellen and I just want to say what a pleasure it has been working with you on the purchase of our new Cottage in Tamarack. Living in Wisconsin, and only able to get their twice you were so accessible on the two days that worked. Even after the first trip with the resort socked in by fog and zero visibility the time we spent together gave us the confidence to fly back out and spend another day resulting in our purchase of a Cottage!!!  You spent many hours answering our questions about the history of Tamarack, showing off the resort/neighborhood while getting us into numerous properties never once making us feel pressured. We have lived in a few states and purchased different properties, but this has been by far the easiest and most exciting of any, and you were a big reason why. You gave us the confidence in what Tamarack can be based upon what it already has to offer.

Even when a few small issues came up you had them fixed in a day allowing us to close in less than 4 weeks. In addition, every referral you gave us were very professional and each one worked out perfectly.  In the end, your suggestions were right on the mark and I believe we made a decision that is going to be somewhat life changing for us. Tamarack seems like a special place that is only getting better, and we feel lucky to be part of it.

Tamarack is lucky to have you representing their resort as well as any buying or selling clients. You are such a great combination of professionalism, knowledge, honesty, fun and friendly. We look forward to seeing you around Tamarack. We started in November with a little wine tasting, and look forward to more in the future!! (Maybe next weekend)

Thanks again,

My wife and I can recommend Trisha Sears, an excellent Real Estate Agent, without hesitation.

We were fortunate to have met her during the process of considering purchasing a property in Tamarack.

Right from the beginning, her knowledge of the area and enthusiasm had us impressed.

Her recommendations regarding the available properties, their locations, ones that were most likely to meet our desires and needs, the lending and insurance agents, as well as a local handyman, all proved to be invaluable.

Throughout the process, she was organized, she dealt with all of the issues and our questions directly, in a timely fashion and she consistently provided excellent guidance.

She has a pleasant, easy-going, while highly professional approach to her work. Likely the greatest single thing she has to offer is a relationship, not merely a business interaction.

A further outstanding quality and aspect of what she provides is her love for the area: She knows Tamarack, she believes in Tamarack, she lives here!

We will always be thankful for, and better off for, meeting Ms. Sears.

Now that we are also very happy members of the “Tam Fam”, we look forward to years of a new-found , highly-valued friendship!

I would like to say what a true real estate professional Trisha Sears was in handling our real estate transaction. She kept us informed of every aspect of our difficult short sale of our Tamarack Property. She spoke with and handled negotiation with our attorney and lender and stayed on top of every aspect until the transaction was closed.

We live out of state (California) and she used every means of communication to handle our transaction from phone, fax, texting, letters and email.

Trisha has drive and compassion and takes pride in doing an excellent job. I would highly recommend Trisha for all of your real estate needs. Good luck and thanks for all your help!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your hard work and patience in selling our town home at Tamarack. We could not have done it without you!
We found your diligence, patience, integrity and professionalism to be of the highest caliber, and would recommend you in a heartbeat to interested sellers or buyers in the area.

Thank you again and again!

Recently, we had the pleasure of buying a Canoe Chalet at Tamarack with the help of Trisha Sears as our real estate representative. That experience was better than what we experienced in any of our numerous previous real estate transactions. She was very professional and went out of her way over a period of months to use her time to help us find the right place. But, as an unexpected bonus, her help didn’t stop with the closing of our transaction. She has since kept us apprised of post-closing events and pertinent news about the resort and she has gone out of her way to help us become acclimated to the Tamarack community. One cannot go wrong with her as a real estate representative.

As seasoned buyers and sellers in the traditional real estate market, we were newbie’s to the short sales market of today. Thankfully we had Trisha to guide us through the process and can say we had a successful outcome and best of all, the retirement home of our dreams. Because short sales are not a typical transaction, there were many questions. Her advice and knowledge on our offer/purchase got the deal done in a tricky market when a lot of them aren’t so successful. Trisha was always available to answer our questions or concerns whether by phone or email. We must say patience is definitely one of her strong points!! If Tamarack is where you are looking, there is NO ONE more knowledgeable then Trisha on the homes and area. Highly recommended by happy home owners in Tamarack

Sometimes you get very lucky in this world and I was very fortunate to have this experience of working with a true professional on purchasing my mountain retreat. Trisha Sears has the intuitive feeling of what you want out of a home and understanding exactly how to translate this into the living experiences that you are seeking. Trisha was able to perform all services of securing my dream home and at the end of the day-you can not ask for anything more!



I have purchased 9 properties and sold 5 in the past 15 years. I have had many negative buying/selling experiences and only a couple barely acceptable ones. Overall my impression of real estate agents has always been that they were pretty much worthless until working with Trisha. Of all the experiences I have had with real estate agents, none have come close to the level of professionalism, expertise, and exceptional base of knowledge provided by Trisha Sears.

Trisha went well beyond the normal level of service one should be able to expect from real estate agents. I am a very detail oriented individual who demands a lot from those I work with. Trisha is the first real estate agent that has met my expectations and then more. The property I purchased was the 3rd bank owned property that I purchased within this neighborhood. Trisha’s knowledge and expertise resulted in my obtaining close to $30,000 in concessions from the selling bank that I was unable to obtain in my previous two transactions handled by other real estate agents. If you want the best possible buying experience, you can do no better than Trisha Sears.



Trisha Sears was a true professional and a joy to work with. She looked after my best interest on representing me while purchasing a house. I would highly recommend her to anyone, she has wonderful communication skills and a great personality to boot.
