Patricia 'Trish' Eakin

Like a perfectly cut gem, Trish’s multi-faceted background will prove most valuable in serving your real estate needs.

Hailing from North of the border, Trish’s brilliant life began in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Her earliest memories and love affair with Florida began with their annual sun-filled family vacations. 

After having attained a Graduate Gemologist Degree (diamond grading |colored stone identification | colored stone faceting) from the Gemological Institute of America(GIA), in Santa Monica, CA, Trish worked in the jewelry business and taught extension classes in Canada for the GIA. Concurrently, she earned a degree in Business Consulting from the University of Costa Rica.

Trish’s husband’s professional hockey career took them to England & Germany for nearly a decade where she welcomed her two sons Taylor and Myles.  She taught English while in Germany for International Fortune 500 companies including Seimens and STEAG.

Her passion for Florida never waned and after retiring, visited their vacation home in Central Florida.  It was after …. Trish decided Orlando was the ideal place to raise her children and further hone her entrepreneurial skills.  Trish opened, operated, and (after 15 years) sold her TCBY franchises and a café (in Windermere, Dr. Phillips and Universal Studios City Walk).  Over the last decade she’s created events and staged productions for some of America’s top brands including Target, L’Oreal, Garnier, Ralph Lauren and Michaels.  Trish’s work has also included Customer Service and Community relations work with a land development and a local Air Conditioning company making her quite proficient permitting as well as knowledgeable about A/C systems.

Trish brings a well-honed and precision-cut skillset to Real Estate including logistics & coordination, customer service, staging, construction, permitting, and a strong business acumen.

Having relocated to different countries and continents, Trish understands firsthand the intricacies and considerations of purchasing properties abroad, international moves and all the logistics in coordinating such a transition. From construction to lifestyle considerations, and whether your move is from abroad, cross-country or across town, Trish understands how overwhelming it can be and will help you navigate the process with ease and compassion. The purchase of anybody’s home will never be “just another house” to Trish. She’s as excited for the new owner as if she was buying it herself.

Fluent in German, Trish also has a working knowledge of the French language. 

She spends her (rare/spare) time with her boys on the beach in Treasure Island and loves to watch and play sports.
