My family and I came to Washington from Michoacan, Mexico in 1980. I started kindergarten in Grandview not knowing the language. I graduated from Grandview High School. I am fluent in English and Spanish. I went to Orange County Business College and San Jose State University, then I started my real estate career in Fremont, California in 2001. After 12 months in the business, I made my first $100,000. In my fourth year, I hit $500,000 in gross income. In my second year, I made Agent of the Year for two years in a row, plus I earned many Agent of the Month awards in an office of over 200 agents.
My greatest accomplishment is becoming a mother; that is the most rewarding thing ever for me. I have two beautiful little girls. My second love is Real Estate. I love participating in the creation of the deal. I love working with my clients side-by-side to help accomplish their ultimate goal, especially the buyers that are unsure they could own their home and at the end I hand them the key and that is an awesome feeling.
I love the opportunity of making as much money as I want and can handle with no limits just the ones I put on myself.
I have lived in the Tri-Cities virtually my entire life. I attended Eastern WA University, got married and later received my degree with a major in computer science and a minor in communications. I then worked at the chemical depot in Umatilla for six years before pursuing what I refer to as my "dream job". It was at this point that my husband and I decided to remain in the Tri-Cities and make it our home. We have now lived here for 8 years with our three daughters and our dog Rocky.
Over my career in real estate I have received a number of accolades ranging from Rookie of the Year back in 2007 all the way to becoming a member of the Millionaires Club in 2013. Most recently I received an award for having the top number of presales in 2013 for a local builder. On that note, if a new home is a possibility for you, I am certified in new construction and well versed in all aspects of the building process.
I greatly enjoy real estate; I am an experienced negotiator and have a true passion for providing the highest level of personal service to my clientele. At the end of the day, whether you are in the market to sell, or are in pursuit of a newly constructed home, an established home, or a piece of property, I would love to assist you every step of the way.
Give me a call, or stop by and say hello, I would be delighted to meet both you, and your real estate needs.
Hi, I'm Tristy Hagedorn. I am committed to finding creative solutions for your purchase or sale.
I want to help you find a home where you feel welcome every time you walk through the door. Whether that home is a fixer upper you'll make your own, new construction you'll customize from the ground up, or a turn-key home with just the right finishing touches, I'll be there as we find what you've been dreaming of.
I've been on the other side of many real estate transactions as a former investor. As a result, I'm a savvy negotiator and a whiz at guiding you through your purchase or sale from A to Z. It's an honor to earn your trust and help guide you through the real estate process.
When I'm not representing Century 21, my husband, Doug, and I are raising five little Tri-Citians.
