Patricia “Trish” is the General Manager and Co-founder of BuildingPro assisting the team in ensuring the client’s needs are met in a professional and timely manner.
With her legal background as a property lawyer with Herbert Smith Freehills both in Sydney and in Brisbane, she has an in-depth understanding of the complexities of buying, selling and investing in property.
Trish has recently led a national campaign for consumer protection to extend to home buyers. She identified a serious legal loophole in the real estate and conveyancing industry and decided to take action. She commenced a national change.org campaign and petitioned Qld parliament to adopt better seller disclosure laws to protect home buyers similar to the legislation in the ACT since 2003. Her petition was tabled in Qld parliament on 16th August 2016 and the Qld Attorney-General, who is keen for reform, will make an announcement in the near future. This has attracted media attention including Channel 9 News, Channel 7 News, A Current Affair, The Courier Mail, Sunday Mail, Herald Sun, Smart Property Magazine, Your Investment Magazine, Real Estate Business, Realestatetalk with Kevin Turner, Qld Master Builders Magazine, ABC Radio, 4BC Radio etc. See our Media page: BuildingPro Media

Trish and her team at BuildingPro have a genuine desire to help clients purchase successful buildings.
