Meet Our Agents

Tricia Ebert
I remember my parents buying their first home in 1965 for $19,000. That was a HUGE amount of money back then. I'll always remember that first house with three bedrooms and one bathroom that five of us had to share. Ahhh... good times! ;-)

Many years later my parents were able buy some land and build their dream home, a four bedroom, three bathroom, two-story house with an attached two-car garage! I remember watching that house get built, walking into all the rooms before they had walls. It was amazing to see a house "grow" from the foundation up! 

When I moved to California from New Jersey in 1978 to go to college, I was so happy to rent my first apartment. I finally had my own home! Over the years, I rented many places but never really felt settled until I bought my first condo in 1990. I could finally hang pictures on the walls without fear of damaging anything and having to lose my security deposit! I could paint the walls whatever color I liked. I could install whatever carpeting I wanted. I really understood at that point "the joys of home ownership"! 

In 2002 my husband, Ernie Sheesley, and I decided to take the plunge, and we purchased our first investment house. I obtained my real estate license in 2006 to offer more services to the people we were helping as investors. As soon as I was licensed, I began working with first-time buyers and helping them find their dream homes. I also started helping people do short sales of their homes at the beginning of the real estate market's decline in early 2007. I became so proficient in doing short sales, I started teaching other Realtors how to do them.  

Because I am committed to continually improving my skills and education to provide the highest level of service to my clients, I’ve obtained the following accreditations:

(1) Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) - This means I can help you if you're having trouble paying your mortgage by giving you all of your options. And if you need to do a short sale and sell your house, I am there for you 100% throughout the process.  

(2) Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) - This is an official designation acknowledging my ability to help buyers in a very challenging market. To do that, I also obtained the…

(3) BPOR designation – BPO stands for "Broker's Price Opinion" and having this designation means that I am able to determine property values as closely as possible to what an appraiser will determine. This is immensely valuable in helping sellers price their properties to sell and in helping buyers to make an appropriate offer on a property. 

(4) Certified Staging Agent (CSA), aka a "Stagent" – This means I’m qualified to help you arrange (or re-arrange!) your furniture and the items in your home to sell your house as fast as possible for the highest price possible.

(5) Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES) - If you or someone you know has recently lost a loved one, you know how overwhelming it is to be the executor of an estate. I can help in this situation. It's important to have a Realtor who understands the challenges and demands of selling a Probate property, even if the property was held in a Trust. I have the knowledge and resources available to help sell an inherited property so the heirs can get on with their lives. Please feel free to refer your friends or loved ones to me for help.

Through the years, I have helped many people find and buy their dream homes as well as sell their homes in a very challenging market. My goal as your Realtor is to take away all the stress of buying or selling a home. I handle the massive amount of paperwork involved and negotiate the best terms for everyone concerned. If you need to do a short sale, I also deal with your bank. Please take a look at the Testimonials from many of my lovely clients if you want to understand what I can do for you!

An added benefit of working with me is my new team member, my husband Ernie. He now has his real estate license and has joined me in serving our wonderful clients. With Ernie's extensive experience as an investor and marketer, he is a great asset to our business!

Give us a call today to get help buying or selling a home or to find out what your best options are in your current situation. We have solutions for you! You can reach us in the office at 818-842-7166. Or you can call me on my cell at 818-679-3191. We look forward to being of service to you!
