Trina Padden & Sam Drury Join Sierra Sotheby’s International


Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty logoTAHOE CITY, CA – Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the addition of Trina Padden and Sam Drury to their team of knowledgeable agents.

Padden and Drury founded Padden Properties in 2004, a small boutique brokerage that focused on Northstar and Tahoe’s north shore communities. Both licensed real estate brokers in California and Nevada, the two share a love for the mountain lifestyle that attracts the residents they often serve.

“We’re excited to have this real estate “power couple” bring their combined knowledge and passion for the region to Sierra Sotheby’s,” Trina Padden & Sam Drury said Brit Crezee, director of marketing for Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty. “Any buyer or seller would be lucky to work with them.”

Padden met Drury while working at Sunnyside Resort on Tahoe’s west shore where she was a waitress and he worked as busboy. They’ve been together since 1988 and will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in May 2019.

Padden has been selling real estate in the Tahoe area since 1988 and has worked as a broker since 2001. Drury’s real estate career began in 1989 when he worked as a property manager in Tahoe City. A shift to sales soon followed and he’s been selling homes, land and condominiums from the West Shore to Truckee ever since.

The two have been living in the Kingswood neighborhood of North Tahoe for more than 20 years. They enjoy yoga, mountain biking, skiing as well as spending quality time with their golden-doodle, Apple.
