Born and raised in Long Beach, CA and specifically a California Heights native est. 1967. My family owned, and we all worked at our restaurant, Mario's Pizza Deli, on the corner of Orange/Wardlow from 1978 until my father retired 25 years later.

Being a Realtor means service, compassion and follow through on behalf of each of my special clients, without fail.

I have a far reaching background in the mortgage lending industry that began in 1989. Making the decision to leave that behind 4 years ago, and solely pursue being a Realtor, has been most satisfying.

I take the years of knowledge from mortgage lending, with the passion I have to serve and help others, and have turned it into my life's work.

Walking people through one of the three biggest decisions they could make in life outside of marriage and having children, is home ownership.

 I am also the business liason and on the PTA board for Longfellow Elementary School, which is the 2nd largest in the city of Long Beach.  In this position, I continue to work with our small business owners to help support our school.  Participating in the many community events in Cal Heights and Bixby Knolls , keeps me fully engaged with my home community where my roots are.

Because I am a true native of the 90807 zip code of Long Beach, I am considered an expert of the area.    I will use my lifelong love and knowledge of this incredible area of Long Beach to help navigate clients through selling or purchasing here.  With the market having gone through one of the toughest times ever, most recently, it has finally started to rebound. I would be honored to walk with you, or someone you may know, through this journey.

Bought a home in 2014.

Two words...Very professional! Trina helped us buy our first home. Trina stayed on top of everything from start to finish. She has forged relationships in the industry. She was able to address issues with the sellers agent and got them resolved. She's very focused and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend her to anybody!

Sold a home in 2014.

I'm so happy we chose Trina to list our home in Rose Park. As a former real estate broker I was worried about handing over control to another agent. Once I spoke to Trina about selling our home I had complete confidence in her abilities. She answered all our questions with lightening speed. Initially I thought her listing package was overkill because it included ALL the seller disclosures. She also took care of ordering the preliminary title report and termite inspection before the house went on the market. Trina's planning turned out to be just what we needed because we had an offer the very first day on the MLS with a quick closing. It wouldn't have been possible if Trina hadn't done so much work up front. When our deal hit a snag after the physical inspection Trina did a great job of playing mediator while respecting our position and she always kept our interests first. Our home sold quickly, escrow went smoothly, and I couldn't be happier with the service we received from Trina.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Bixby Knolls, Long Beach, CA.

Trina was wonderful -- both the sellers and me, the buyer, appeared to get everything we wanted. I really enjoyed working with Trina, she's constantly trying to be up beat and positive. She works hard and seems to be available at all hours.
