 Moving is always an emotional experience, but who says it has to be a difficult one?

I challenge that and say that with the right professional in your corner, your transition can be near seamless, efficient, and (dare I say) enjoyable!
 Services for Sellers:

·        
Expert Guidance: I will present you with a concise and thorough Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), providing an accurate assessment of your home’s current market value, and assisting you in assembling an effective pricing strategy.
·        
Creative Marketing Approach: Now, I get excited about this…..an aggressive marketing campaign is key to a successful and expedient sale. In addition to traditional marketing techniques, I utilize the vast exposure potential of the newest technologies, including internet, video, and social media. My personal goal is to be the local leader in the use of innovative, cutting edge marketing tools to maximize your home’s exposure in the market.

·       
 
Personal Approach: “Home” conjures up many feelings that can’t be contained in four walls. Home is where we create our memories, feel safe and secure, dream, and grow.   There aren’t many experiences in life that are more human and personal as that of selecting a new home, and I’m honored to be able to share in that experience with you. Trust me; this will be a fun adventure!
·        
Location, Location, Location: I was born and raised in the Neoga and Lake Mattoon area, and have lived in Mattoon and Arcola. This is where I’m from and this is where I know. I can provide you with community and school information, as well as additional resources with which you can perform further research.

Trisha was EVERYTHING we were looking for in a Realtor! Hardworking, honest and a go-getter! We made the mistake of using another realtor when we first listed our house and then had Trisha come in and cleanup the mess.. and of course she didn’t let us down!! We now live in our dream house and we’re able to give another family the opportunity to make memories in our old house!!

Trisha was excellent to work with. She knew just what I was looking for and as soon as it came on the market she scheduled a showing immediately. The house was only on the market for 2 days when my offer was accepted. Thank you Trisha for everything!

Worked with Trisha to sell our current house and to buy our forever home. She gave us perfect tips to get the house ready, and it sold within 2 weeks. She was always available to show us houses and to give us advise. She made this experience easier and it was totally worth it. We are in the house of our dreams. Thank you!

Trisha was great and so helpful in the process of buying our first home! She made finding our perfect house so easy and stress free! She took us to multiple houses and listened to our wants and needs and didn't give up until she knew we had found just what we wanted (which happened to be a house that was no longer on the market). I would definitely recommend Trisha to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Trisha helped me navigate the process of buying my first home. She's very knowledgeable about the homes and neighborhoods. We looked at about 10-12 homes before finding the perfect one. She was very patient and honest about what to expect and was a great negotiator. I can't imagine an easier buying experience. If you are looking for a motivated, dedicated, honest agent, Trisha is the one to call!

All I can say is WOW! You will not find a better realtor! Trisha's dedication to her clients is like no other. She sold our house in less than three months after it had been on the market for over a year not to mention showed at least a bagillion houses before helping us settle into our new home. She is kind, super knowledge and was a true pleasure to work with. Thank you Trisha!

Trisha was always easy to get a hold of (morning, noon, and night) and at times went above and beyond what I expected. Aside from the initial contact with my lender, Trisha handled everything with the lender and sellers making it a seamless transition from 1st contract to closing! Very helpful....Read Full Review

In our home search and sale, Trisha Bird performed as the consummate real estate industry professional. She was articulate, personable, and had an extensive knowledgeable of the local market. Due to an extremely low inventory of homes in our area of interest, our home search was grueling and took over 18 months. Trisha stayed on top of all homes coming onto the market to allow us the first peek. Her extensive web of local contacts smoothed over issues before they became problems. I highly recommend Trisha for your real estate needs.

My husband and I worked with Trisha on the purchase of our first home. She was very professional and had great communication throughout our entire purchasing process. She assisted in finding a home with all of our "must haves" when we didn't think it was possible within our budget. Trisha thoroughly walked us through the home buying process as we were new to this experience. She was very flexible in meeting around our work schedules. We are extremely satisfied with our new home and with the experience we had with Trisha. She made home buying fun and simple. We HIGHLY recommended her!!

I would not hesitate to call Trisha the next time I am buying or selling property. She made the entire process so easy. When the banks slowed the process down she stepped in to help make sure everything was moving along so we close quickly. Trisha is friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family.

Trisha helped us sell her our home. She was very professional and always in communication. We had listed with another realtor before her without much progress, but she sold our home in 2 months. Everything went smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone selling in the area.

We were not smart buyers. We bought a new house before we had our current home on the market. Trisha came in, told us what to do and found a buyer in 2 days!!! She does not know the weight she lifted off our shoulders. She is the BEST!!!

I love Trisha! I had my house on the market with another realtor for six months with almost no viewings even scheduled. As soon as I hired Trisha she was scheduling bookings and open houses right away! She was up front about the entire process, and continually supported me (which was very helpful as I am pretty neurotic at times!). She never gave up on my house, and as a result it finally sold, and I was able to breathe easy considering I had already moved 2,000 miles away. I would recommend Trisha to anyone who was looking to buy or sell a house in the Mattoon/Charleston area.

I had been trying to sell my house for two years. I had some offers and quite a few people who wanted to walk through the home but couldn't get it sold.

She would go above and beyond to help get things done and move along the process all the way up to closing.

Trisha was very down to earth and easy to talk to. She taught us a few things we didn't know from our first home purchase, and she fought (and unfortunately paid) to ensure we got what was advertised when we went to close.
The previous owner had advertised a home theatre system in the finished basement with the listing, but just a few days before closing said that they wanted extra to leave it with the house because it cost them so much. Sad part was the system was in the photos of the listing, which were actually the file photos the realtor had from the first time it sold, so they didn't even buy it. Trisha helped us fight to get it as part of the deal, but ultimately she split the cost of the system with the listing agent and they paid the seller at close, which we didn't find out till we walked out of the title company. I just don't think that you would find a lot of realtors out there that are going to follow through with something they know is not right to the point of paying for something out of their own pocket.

She made it so easy for me to make my choice in the home that I truly wanted. She also made sure that I had all the information before putting an offer in and accepting the counter offer.

Great person!!!
