Energetic | Positive | Forthright | Honest | Hardworking and Competitive

Just some of the words that describe Trish Turnbull, a wife and mother of two, who knows exactly what to look for in a house, and what is necessary to make it a home to be proud of.

Trish views life from a variety of different angles thanks to her following life experiences:

  • a member of Canada’s National Figure Skating Team
  • a certified fitness instructor
  • her career in TV broadcasting
  • extensive international travel
  • volunteering in every community she has lived

Her warm personality is one we trust and love! Clients know Trish listens and concentrates on their needs. Through her many years in the real estate industry Trish says this:

“Real Estate is about patience and knowledge but even more importantly…it is about PEOPLE! Listening to and understanding people’s needs, giving them guidance through, what in most cases is the biggest investment ever made, then following through that process at a pace comfortable to them is what I feel makes for a great realtor.” – Trish

Children’s Miracle Network

Trish is a very proud and regular supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network. A portion of every sale she completes goes directly to this invaluable organization.

Secret Santa Nanaimo

Trish also prides herself in being part of an amazing group of volunteers that come together each Christmas season to provide a magical Christmas for less fortunate families who otherwise would not experience the magic of the season. This past year was a record year delivering toys, clothes, food and household essentials to 150 Nanaimo families.

If you would like to be a part of Secret Santa Nanaimo, contact Trish.  The involvement could range from sponsoring your own family, donating money for someone to shop for a family, showing up to do the shopping with the donated funds, taking part in deliveries or volunteering as little or as much time as you are comfortable giving.  Anyone who has been a part of this program will tell you how empowering it can be.  Hope to hear from you next season!
