Trish Trousil developed her client service skills early on with careers managing global clients for a leading corporate marketing agency, in public affairs at the Art Institute of Chicago, through her personal catering business and running one of the most successful holistic veterinary practices in the Chicagoland area. She considers helping people find their perfect home to be the ultimate client service experience, and a natural extension of who she is. When she’s not managing her real estate business, Trish constantly seeks out new learning experiences and has studied design, drawing, dance, acting, voice, writing, photography, and film. She’s also an avid supporter of four major theatres in Chicago. She volunteers for the Lincoln Park Shelter, Coat Angels, Habitat for Humanity, local animal shelters and adoption events. She is a member of Realtors to the Rescue. Physical exercise is particularly important to Trish’s life. She considered a career in movement and dance in her teens, and as a result she continues to participate in all forms of strength training, running, yoga, tennis, and dance. She’s also expanding her repertoire to martial arts. Trish views her fitness regimen as a non-negotiable commitment that she maintains without fail. Trish also thrives on adventure and travel—she has traveled solo through South America despite a language barrier, and she feels very grateful for the places she’s experienced. Some of her favorite destinations have included the ancient ruins of Mexico, Israel, the UK and South America, the Galapagos Islands, and scuba diving in Belize. Trish was born in and lived most of her adult life in Chicago, and now resides in the Edgewater neighborhood. She has also spent five years living in New York City and Boston. She graduated from DePaul University.
