A knowledgeable, first class Pro. Friendly, down-to-earth, easy to talk to, punctual, experienced, well-connected, well-liked and respected by local network of professionals. She is the only real estate agent in the area who knows how to work Short Sales. Trisha showed us every home we wanted her to, and knew the ups and downs of every neighborhood. Her advise was always right on. She stays busy with other clients, but always was sweet and pleasant, and took time to answer our questions without rushing. My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Trisha, and are fortunate to be able to call her our friend. We would HIGHLY recommend her to others. We wouldn't think of using anyone else after our experience with her.

I needed an agent who could a) help me quickly buy a home, b) find highly qualified renters, and c)orchestrate numerous seller/buyer priorities into a seamless process. Trisha did all that and MORE! Trisha also brought outstanding business acumen to the process, and she saved us thousands through her extra efforts. I am using her already in the purchase of my next home.

Trisha went far above and beyond anything I could have expected from a real estate professional. She cleaned, staged and checked on it often, since I was no longer living in the home. She adjusted the A/C, sprinkler timer, and even did some repairs that the inspector found and the buyers requested. It made the whole process of selling my home painless and smooth. I would recommend Trisha to anyone who truly wants to sell their home and wants it marketed in a manner that will generate lots of interest and viewing by prospective buyers. She'll take excellent care of you!

Trisha was the seller's agent when I bought my house 6 years ago. Her significant knowledge of quality building techniques, as well as outstanding networking skills was so apparent that I have since recommended her to family and friends. Last week she helped me to sell that same house in record time and proved to be a fair and tough negotiator.

I have been a Walla Walla Valley resident for many years now. Trisha Bush of Preferred Properties is one of the most well respected, trustworthy individuals that I know and I do not hesitate to recommend her. She has personally represented my family in real estate and has always been honest, fair and forthright. When our respective career paths have intersected, I have always been impressed with the professionalism she has displayed and strong ethics she has shown for her other clients. In a world where it is standard policy to "look after number one" - Trisha is a breath of fresh air!

Trisha is simply amazing! We were having the hardest time selling our house - went through a couple of realtors before we contacted her. She was sympathetic with our situation and took charge right away. We are very pleased with her service and would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat!

From start to finish our buying experience with Trisha Bush was outstanding. Since we lived out of town, we began our relationship with emails and phone calls only. We emailed for two months before actually coming to Walla Walla to look for property. Trisha was responsive, informative, and patient with our many questions. She had a tour of homes for us to look at when we arrived, keeping us busy for two days and providing us with good choices from which we could make comparisons and come to a sound decision on a home to buy. The whole transaction was smooth and fast! Being new to a community can be daunting, but Trisha didn't just "disappear" once the closing was complete; she was always on hand to assist us in any way she could. We can honestly say that we consider her a friend, as she continues to be in our lives. We would recommend her to anyone and have already done so. Sincerely, Jerry and Ali Lane

We had previously been unsuccessful in selling our home through another realtor. I then went to Trisha as I had seen a lot of her marketing practices through social media, etc, and had heard several good things about her. We had an immediate offer after listing our house with Trisha, and although it fell through due to the buyer's financing, we quickly began seeing more interest in the home/property. Trisha marketed it well and stayed in constant contact with us regarding the activity on it. We recently sold the house after only a short listing period with Trisha. Trisha remained very professional at all times, as well as maintaining a wonderful level of human compassion and friendship. I would very much recommend dealing with Trisha to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the area.

I just met Trisha, but she was very helpful when another agent couldn't find the time. In 20+ years in real estate, I have found too many agents to be only concerned about their commission. Trisha proved to be a true professional.

Trisha helped me get my house sold. It was a difficult situation and she breezed right through the process. She not only found a buyer for me, but then took care of everything else. I never had to worry about a thing! Thanks Trisha!

This woman knows her stuff! From the moment I walked into her office until the closing of my new house I felt like I was her only client. Trisha was a world of information and help - she even took time out from her vacation to help me write an offer. Her knowledge of home construction, building codes, real estate law and amazing negotiation skills combined to find me the perfect home. Her honesty and integrity are unsurpassed. Thanks a heap Trisha!

Where do I begin? In 2007 we contacted Trisha Bush of Preferred Properties to show us homes. I let her know we would be arriving with our 3 small children and wanted to get through as many, as possible, in one day. I have to say, she rolled out the red carpet for us. She had games and activities for the children while we were driving from house to house to keep them occupied, she had snacks and water and had planned a lunch stop too. We looked at 12 homes in 6 hours. Ultimately, we ended up building a custom home (long involved process). Trisha was there every step of the way to insure the home was built to our liking. Through this process our family has gained a wonderful, sincere friend and an "Auntie Trisha" to our 3 girls. Trisha use to be a teacher and it is obvious when she is around children - they all love her. Her office is child friendly too and if we stop in to say hello, Trisha will stop what she is doing to color with my youngest (Lilli who is 3). We recommend Trisha or Don Bush if you want someone with a good heart and who will go the extra mile.

Trisha Bush is a Broker with experience, integrity and results. I feel both fortunate and blessed to have her expertise in the purchase of our property. I had been using another Broker and was frustrated. Trisha Bush was recommended and I switched. I was so glad I did. She was so knowledgeable and straight forward. I wasn't left second guessing and she always called me back. I have the utmost respect for this Broker and Walla Walla is blessed to have her as one of their Real Estate Experts.

Trisha is the most extraordinary Realtor we have ever worked with! She exceeds all expectations. Her creative attention to detail positions her in a class of her own. Trisha demonstrates a generous spirit in a very difficult market that breeds greed. She is delightful to work with. We have seen evidence of the highest integrity in her dealings with us. We highly recommend Trisha Bush.

"By far the hardest working Broker out there. Trisha is 'First Cabin" on everything she does from marketing to negotiating. I appreciated her attention to detail as she helped me acquire a 15 unit apartment complex. The transaction was smooth, trouble-free and very enjoyable."

This child is so precious. She is the only one who would give me the time of day when I first arrived here from Alabama. I was looking for a small place and didn't want to spend much money. I called almost every office in town. First thing out most Agents mouths were "Are you pre-qualified?" I said no and they would say they couldn't help me. What they didn't know was that I had cash savings. I finally called this sweet girl and she patiently listened to me and didn't try to shoo me off the line. She is a Christian and has a heart of gold. If you want someone who is genuine then you need to call her. I am so glad I met her and I am so grateful for her help and support. She has a little dog Baltow in the office that is a love too. What looked like a horrible experience turned into an absolute blessing thanks to Trisha Bush.

Trisha Bush is exactly the real estate agent you want. She really works hard for you. She is totally professional and knowledgeable. In addition to that, she is a very caring person and that helps with the transition of leaving your home of 40 years. She goes "above and beyond" what you expect in an agent. She hired a professional stager, helped pack up the crystal, hired a professional photographer & printed a unbelievably beautiful brochure. We are very happy to have Trisha as our agent but happier still to call her and her Dad, Don.........friends.

I had the pleasure of working with Trisha Bush on the purchase of my home. She was very professional, a tireless worker, and quite knowledgeable. Trisha's experience in the area of construction proved quite handy when questions of home construction arose. She is very detail oriented and organized. She is also very good at finding a home best suited to the buyer. I would recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a home.

I have dealt with many Realtors over the years,both socially and in business and have never experienced the kind of service that Preferred Properties and Trisha Bush offer here in Walla Walla. If you are seeking a combination of financial wizard and marketing Goddess then I suggest you look no further, She is so knowledgable and so professional , After talking to her for ten minutes I quickly realized that I had complete faith in her abilities and real estate acumen and that I was in safe hands. She certainly won't paint a false or glossy picture of your situation but goes to bat for you the same way a world class attorney would take on his or hers most significant case. I can't recommend her strongly enough!

Trisha is an excellent realtor. She recently listed and sold a piece of land for me. When we first listed the land there was hardly any property being sold for building homes but we managed to find a buyer among the few. I believe her experience and intuitiveness made it happen. I first met her after my brother passed away suddenly. I was living on the east coast and she helped my elderly mother sell my brothers business property, home and a rental property. She was very compassionate and went above and beyond to protect mom's interests while making the process as simple as possible. If you want a realtor that really knows the area, is loaded with integrity, and a delight to be around you should consider Trisha.

We call Trisha Bush - T. WOWW for Trisha - White Oprah of Walla Walla. This broker exudes brains, beauty and an unbelievable work ethic. She is a local icon and our real estate mogul. Trisha is the broker who is at the office at 5 a.m. and when you drive by at 7p.m. she is usually still there. No question this broker gives 120% to her clients. We started using Trisha about 6 years ago (as we fancy ourselves Real Estate Investors). We will only use Trisha because she is completely frank with us and has a vast knowledge of the Real Estate Market.

The market place is not an easy one in Walla Walla County. Trisha Bush of Preferred Properties hung in there though and after a year of diligent marketing she found a buyer that came close to paying our asking price on our investment property. This office goes way above and beyond the call of duty. We were not local people (Idaho) but that didn't seem to matter. She handled everything from a distance with grace and ease. We highly recommend this office to anyone who is looking for A+ service. We were blessed to have had Trisha Bush and her Father Don Bush as our representatives.

My husband and I interviewed 5 agents. It became obvious after speaking with Trisha that she knows the ins and outs of Real Estate. She is very busy and for good reason. She has a waiting list because the word is out in the Walla Walla Valley that she is the best. Fortunately for us, we only had to wait a week or two before she could help us as her clients. When our home buying process was all done - we felt very fortunate to have had Trisha represent us. She is a strategic negotiator, well experienced and highly knowledgeable. We appreciated her extreme professionalism from start to finish. My husband will tell you that he feels we won the lottery because we ended up with the best agent we have ever encountered in our buying and selling in the last 25 years. We highly recommend Trisha. If you use her, you will be glad you did!

Six stars for Preferred Properties Land and Homes in Walla Walla, Washington! The owner of the company is an Angel. I don't know how else to describe her. She successfully helped us short sale our home. She knows her stuff. Everyone tells her she should become an attorney because she is so good at understanding homeowner rights and the laws regarding distressed properties. We are so grateful that God led us to her. Because of her we avoided a foreclosure and she helped to get us into a nice rental property. Trisha Bush is a spiritual lady who cares about her clients and relationships with people. She has been in business a long time and for good reason. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Trisha is amazing. Simply stated. When we found the house we loved, Trisha made it happen. Never once were we hurried or pressured and the houses she showed us fit our budget and our needs. When we made an offer on our new home, it was contingent on the sale of our old house. Trisha worked feverishly to keep us up to date on extensions, inspections, and a myriad of bank requirements. It was my first time purchasing a home and she kindly answered all of my questions from paperwork, to loans, and nearby schools. Buying a home with Trisha was like buying a home with a friend. We always felt she was working with our best interest in mind.

Trisha is amazing. She and her staff have worked endlessly on my house sale, forever, it seems. She never gives up! She is talented and tireless. She and her staff have worked hard as Short Sale Experts to handle the banks' tireless demands. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a quality person and company representing them. Trisha came highly recommended to me as an expert in her field and as a person who could market my home in multiple markets.

Trisha Bush is such a sweetheart. She was both patient and informative when we had questions about different properties. Trisha hung in there for 2 years showing us an endless number of homes. We finally found our dream home and purchased it for a song (deal of the century). She was so knowledgeable about the Short Sale Process (we ending up purchasing a short sale). Closing was easy as she prepared us for what to expect. Walla Walla Title was excellent to with the closing as well and didn’t rush us through. I would highly recommend Trisha Bush to anyone looking for property in Walla Walla County. We feel so blessed to have had Trisha Bush represent us! Trisha Bush is number one in our book.
