Well, let me tell you about the amazing Trinkie Watson! Hailing from the golden city of San Francisco, she's a true California girl with roots that run four generations deep. Her family valued education, and Trinkie took that to heart, attending Mills College, University of Wisconsin, and University of California, Berkeley from which she graduated.
But Trinkie is more than just a brainiac - she's got a wild side too! After working at Standard Oil and a San Francisco PR firm, she decided to try something new and headed to Squaw Valley in '66. She fell in love with the mountains and never looked back. With her real estate license in hand, Trinkie hit the ground running and even started out on an orange Kawasaki motorcycle. Talk about a cool cat!
Trinkie's had an exciting career in real estate, representing luxury properties like Stillwater Cove, an elegant new condo development in Crystal Bay. She even braved the crazy interest rates of the '80s to sell residential properties in Pacific Heights. But eventually, Trinkie's heart called her back to the mountains, and she's been living her dream in Tahoe since '89.
Trinkie doesn't just sell real estate - she's also a mover and a shaker in the REALTOR® community. She's been President of the Incline Village Board of REALTORS® and the Tahoe Sierra MLS, and won Incline's REALTOR® of the Year award. Plus, she's a philanthropist at heart, serving on numerous boards and leading the Lake Tahoe Music Festival for three terms. And, she loves German Shepherds, currently with her 8th, and first girl, Dancer.
When it comes to real estate, Trinkie is the queen of luxury. She's sold over 100 estate properties on Lake Tahoe in both California and Nevada, and she's a true pro at giving top-notch service to all her clients. Whether you're buying or selling, Trinkie is the gal you want in your corner!
"Trinkie helped sell our long time vacation home in Tahoma along with her great team of associates. She was very patient and calm during the long process and kept me advised during what I saw as a very stressful process having never sold a home on my own."
"Trinkie helped us purchase our vacation home in Tahoe Donner and we recommend her without hesitation. She reworked her calendar to be available when most convenient for us. Her advice and suggestions were all right on, and showed that she had really taken to heart our preferences and was working to make sure we could find the home that would make us happy long term. Her steady guidance through the buying process was also very appreciated."
"Trinkie helped us to find our dream cabin in Tahoe. I would recommend her 100% or even 200% if that was possible. She was knowledgeable, always available (even for last minute visits), good at negotiating, and just a really great person to know. She has her client in mind first and will do everything she can to help. We have ended up with a dream place that is even better than our wildest dreams would be."
"Trinkie and her incredibly capable Assistant Cheryl were so attentive and really understood seller (us) and buyer. They structured the deal thoughtfully and spent much time and effort on several custom terms the buyer requested that required patience and back and forth between parties. Not a cookie cutter deal, but Cheryl and Trinkie stayed focused and were so efficient in accomplishing a successful and on time closing."
"Trinkie is the ultimate real-estate broker. She has a wealth of experience, knows the market, has a huge marketing platform, and guided us through the process seamlessly. Most importantly she maximized our sales outcome, far above expectations, so of which was due to market conditions, but we were positioned well and hit the market at just the right time."
"Trinkie was amazing. When I decided to purchase a Tahoe place, she made immediate arrangements to take me around based on my schedule coming from the Bay Area. She understood what I was looking for, we found 'the place', she wrote up the offer, and it was immediately accepted. Could not have been an easier process. She's a true professional."
"Trinkie Watson and Cheryl Luther are a great team. We had a large property that was a difficult sell at the price we wanted. Trinkie and Cheryl worked with us all the way to the close. It was not an easy sell, and they never gave up. Their work on advertising was professional, the pandemic made their job harder than ever, but their concern for us and for a successful sale was paramount. I recommend both of them as professionals and as friends."
