Trina Padden has been a Tahoe resident since 1986 when she finally put down roots after living in some of America’s most beautiful places, but only Tahoe captured her heart.
An avid skier, yoga practitioner, mountain biker, and aerial performer, she can be found in regional flashmob dance groups too.
Trina met her husband Sam on beautiful Lake Tahoe. They’ve been together since 1988 and celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in Italy in May this year.
Trina has been selling real estate in the Tahoe area since 1988 and been a broker in Nevada and California since 2001. In 2004, Trina created Padden Properties, a “boutique brokerage” focusing on Tahoe-Truckee communities .
Padden Properties was very successful in its own right, but to be more competitive in technology and marketing, Padden Properties merged with Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty in November, 2018. No other brokerage compares with the opportunities to key in to Bay Area buyers who account for about 90% of Tahoe’s north shore sales. With offices in Incline Village, Northstar, Squaw Valley, Truckee, and Reno, the decision was easy. Our clients are delighted too!

Both Trina and Sam are licensed real estate Broker-Salespeople in Nevada as well as California, allowing them to provide the excellent service for which they’re known all around Lake Tahoe and in the Reno area too. Many of their recent clients have been “Tax Immigrants,” leaving California for the more favorable tax climate of Nevada, so Trina and Sam continue to expand their business and service beyond the Tahoe/Truckee area. Their local and regional experience is unparalleled.
Trina and Sam live the dream too, having active “Tahoe” lifestyles. They’re avid skiers, mountain bikers, hikers, and yoga practitioners. Trina also performs “aerial arts” including the lyra, spansets, and aerial fabrics. They’ve lived on Tahoe’s west- and north-shores and own a rental property in Truckee too. They currently live in the Kingswood Estates, along with their golden-doodle, Apple.
