Positive, up-beat, honest and driven. After just 4 years in real estate, Trish worked hard to help over 87 home buyers and sellers with their real estate goals, as a new agent and in the toughest market our province has seen in recent years. Coming from a background in health sciences and management, she truly understands the importance of strong communication, and is adamant on keeping her clients up to date, informed and at ease throughout the process. She has quickly excelled to a higher designation in real estate, receiving her Broker's licence, and alongside her partner Matt Tingley, opened her own real estate office where she now acts as Managing Associate Broker.
 
Matt has been designing and building residential homes and vacation properties since his youth- a passion that has led him to develop extensive knowledge and experience in new home construction and renovation. Through his own purchase and sales transactions, he has recognized the value of construction and development knowledge to help others in their most significant investment - real estate. He specializes in preparing your home for market with cost effective repairs, crucial upgrades for maximum resale value, and objective valuation based on relevant sales data. He has been in the real estate business for over 13 years, and has a strong history of breaking price barriers in neighborhoods and setting a new bar. His over 30 years of experience managing projects from start to finish, and his knowledge of building and renovation costs, position him to negotiate the best possible deal on your home.
 
Together, Matt and Trish hold extensive experience in Construction, Renovations, Marketing & Sales. Their services include home staging, pre-inspections, professional photographs, computer renderings of your floor plan, and consults with their contractors to address inspection issues. They assist with arranging finishing touches of your home for resale so it can stand out in a competitive market. Their professional connections add to the value of their service, and they are happy to pass along that value to their clients. 
 
They work extensively with buyers, with advice on property maintenance issues, renovation ideas, and even 3D animated virtual tours if you're purchasing a home that requires updating, or to visualize a new construction at the pre-finish stage.  They have immense experience with planning & development applications, zoning requirements, and conversions - which can be especially useful for investment buyers. With Matt's more than 30 years of experience as a home builder and general contractor, and Trish's experience in marketing and management, their unique qualities allow them to share exclusive tools with their clients. 

"My fiance & I were moving back to NS from Calgary, AB. We are first time home buyers & everything seemed so extremely overwhelming with the process of purchasing a home; until we met Trish. She was able to coordinate with my parents who viewed many houses with her in NS, WITHOUT us having seen any of them. I felt nothing but the highest confidence that she would assist us in selecting the right home for us. Trish searched for homes on the market and always respected our wants & budget when sending us ideas. She was always very quick to respond to emails and/or phone calls, well outside of typical business hours (and always did so without one complaint - you never felt like you were intruding). She fought hard for our wants & needs in our conditions & I walked away after our sale feeling confident on our purchase, knowing we made the right decision. I would recommend Trish to literally anyone who is looking to buy/sell their house. She is such listener truly wants what is best for you."

Trish approach with us was effective she was very calm and collective and encouraged us with our decisions. We valued her opinions and direction. She clearly knew what she was doing. She was very professional with us. But also very sweet and understanding. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family. Thank you Trish for all your hard work with us!"

  -Meghan P. - Halifax, Client

"She was amazing. answered our question before we knew we were wondering them. Any information on the area I asked her to gather she did so quickly and added some information to what I wanted. She handled all negotiations and transactions with professionalism and ease. Compared other similar homes in our choice area to make sure we got the best prices. Even helped us with multiple home related things after the sale on her own time. Could not have asked for more."

  -Stephanie R. - Porter's Lake, Client

"Trish is one of the most professional and knowledgeable broker I have met in the real estate business. She is thorough with her research about properties. I am always impressed at how quickly she is able to adapt changes in the market and her exceptional ability to predict negotiations during purchase/sale offers. One of the best things about Trish is that she is always available. There is no delay in communication, she makes things happen effectively and accurately. Her knowledge about building construction and materials is extensive and a great asset during house viewings. Given her integrity, professional values and effective communication skills, I would highly recommend her. "

  -Aditya P. - Bedford, Client

"Trish was flawlessly organized, personable, informative, supportive, and worked extremely hard to find me the perfect home and guide me through the process of buying my first home. She was thorough in her evaluation of each home we looked at, knowledgeable about various structural and geographical hurdles, and encouraging when the process became overwhelming. I felt like I was in good hands from the very first day"

"We sold and bought through Trish. She had the willingness to go out of her way to find our perfect house. Very understanding and patient with questions we had about getting our house ready to sell. Was always readily available when we needed her and responded very quickly and at a moment's notice when we would text her questions. I will definitely recommend her to anybody I know that is wanting to buy and/or sell a house."

  -Amy & Vaughn C. , Client

"Trish Chesal has to be the most relatable, patient, fast, accommodating, polite, honest, trustworthy, and helpful residential real estate agent I have ever met. I am in the military and have sold 3 homes, and bought 4 - in only 10 years. Trish is one of the ones who actually genuinely cares about her clients best interest and well being. I would recommend her for all of your real estate needs! You won't be disappointed."
