We couldn’t have been luckier to find Solid Rock Realty. We were purchasing from out of state, and at every step of the way Trina and Doug went above and beyond to make our experience completely seamless.
Not only did they help us find and purchase our dream home, they also helped us connect the dots - again, from out of state - with the right people to help us at every stage. They were NEVER pushy with their recommendations, giving us their opinion on different paths we could take but always encouraging us to do our own research and to make our own choice in the end.
They checked in at every stage, even if it was something they were not responsible for, to make sure we had everything at our fingertips. As we were also in the midst of selling our out-of-state property, this level of service was extraordinarily helpful, giving us true peace of mind that Doug and Trina would let us know immediately if there was something that needed our attention.
Trina and Doug and the whole Solid Rock Realty team stand head and shoulders above other very fine realtors of our experience. We couldn’t recommend them more.

We have done business with Trina for several years. She sold our home a few years back to the first person who saw it. We have since purchased and sold rental properties from her. She is a professional in every since of the word. We have found her to be extremely honest and trust worthy in every situation and an extremely knowledgeable and hard working. Can't say enough good things about Trina!

I met Trina and her husband, Doug, at a friend'a dinner party. We talked all night like old friends. At the end of the evening, I asked for her business card. I appreciated her in depth knowledge of the lake mary, Longwood, heathrow and sanford areas. I was very pleased that she was willing to work with my budget, And flexible enough to make changes with me along the way. It was less than a year before I found the home of my dreams. Trina was essential in making sure I did not miss out on my chance to make an offer when another buyer stepped in before me. As a first time home buyer, I needed her guidance and she was so patient with me and went overboard in her efforts to help me with paperwork and deposits. She was so generous with her time and was able to work around my busy schedule. I thank God that we crossed paths. My life will never be the same! I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone buying or selling a home. I had a wonderful experience working with her and will call her again if I ever need to buy or sell. My deepest thanks to Trina and her husband for their warmth, generosity, flexibility, efficiency and assertiveness. What a wonderful couple! Words cannot describe the feeling of peace and serenity I have when I am home. Love Amanda
Trina helped us list, sale and find a home with professionalism, skill and grace. As a team Doug and Trina are a rare find. Together as Solid Rock Realty they are wonderful.
We have worked withTrina on four separate transactions, both selling and buying. She has done an outstanding job. Our personal experience illustrates that she knows the market in Seminole and Lake Countys (and maybe even more),and stays current on both the existing listings and properties that may be coming available. We love working with Trina and know she will provide you with professional representation.
Trina Koehler, Solid Rock Realty helped us tremendously in the sell of our home in the difficult Florida housing market. She helped advise in the staging, pricing, and advertising of the house to contribute to fast offers.

The listing and selling process of our house was a very involved process, and honestly, difficult at best. Trina worked diligently throughout, overcoming every obstacle that was put in front of us. I highly recommend her as she always kept our best interests in the forefront and got the job done......and never lost her smile.

Amazing Amazing Amazing! As a team, Doug and Trina go the extra mile for their clients. This is more than a job. They feel called to find a home that will make memory's for a lifetime. If you are selling a home or purchasing a new home or both, this is the team for you.

I am sitting this evening in our beautiful new home, and have been reflecting on how things are pleasantly worked out to bring us here. Specifically, right after moving to Florida from Connecticut in June, 2016, I met Trina Koehler who was showing at an open house. She was very attentive and responsive to my questions even though I might appear not so interested in buying in the near future. Unlike my prior experience with two other realtors who just dropped me without any explanation. I guess some realtors are very short term minded nowadays, but Trina is not. If you are looking for a home, I would love to share my experience with this realtor. Trina took the time to really get to know our situation and what we need - my wife not with me in Florida and our desire to only purchase a smaller property. Trina helped me to narrow down the search and showed me some houses in various desirable community so I could share the property information with my wife online. We quickly started to see properties that we really liked. After initial house hunting, we then stopped because my wife would like to see the property herself to make purchase decision at the end of the year when she join me in Florida. During those months, Trina continued to provide the property update to us in addition to following up our situation. When finally my wife arrived in November and we were more than ready since we had been well prepared. Trina took initiative and showed us the houses we had selected. Within two weeks we reached our buying decision. Six weeks later, we had our house closed. Trina is well connected and she basically arranged everything required before we moved in. Loan approval process was very complicated through BoA, but Trina took initiative to contact loan officer and make sure it was taken care of. During those six weeks, the seller repaired the kitchen plumbing and dry wall to meet the professional standard based on the inspector's recommendation. We are very pleased to move in knowing that the house is in good condition and that we were taken care of by the responsible professional who really cares about her clients.

My husband and I used Doug Koehler with Solid Rock Realty to find our home. He and his wife were recommended to us by our pastor and his wife. Our house we had currently owned sold within 2 weeks so we had to find a home quickly. Doug gave us some suggestions of towns that were up and coming in an area closer to the coast. He showed us several homes that were contenders as he listened to what we were looking for in a home. Once we picked a home, he worked diligently to negotiate with the builder to come down on the price and throw in additional things like a refrigerator, blinds, and garage door openers. He took care of everything efficiently so that there were no hiccups in the closing process on the new home. I would highly recommend them to find your next home!
Thank you Doug and Trina for your care of our former property. You went above and beyond as agents during the rental of our property. When we decided to sell you both, especially Doug stepped up as friends and your clients to make the selling of same said property very seamless and easy.
Barb & George Benigno
We are so thankful for you and doug's help! We had gone through a few different realtors but you both were the only ones that seem to really have our best interest at heart. Now we have our first dream home and love it!
Trina and Doug were very helpful throughout the whole process of selling my home. They were reliable and got the job done!
I recommend Solid Rock if you need a good realtor.
Working with Trina and Doug was a wonderful experience! Our house was only listed for four months before selling. And Trina and Doug are VERY prompt at answering all questions and concerns when dealing with the sale. They are very experienced, and were great at putting our mind at ease through the whole transaction. Very professional!
Solid Rock Realty is the rental management company for the townhome we have been renting for the past 2 1/2 years. We have been so impressed with the quickness and efficiency with which they handled any issue that we decided to have them help us find a home. They listened to our wants and needs and took us to many many homes before we found the right home for us. They answered all of our questions and worked with us through the entire home buying process. I would recommend them for anyone who is either renting a home, buying or selling a home.

Trina is a gift from God. So you can only imagine how she is as Florida's most God-loving Realtor!! She and her husband Doug worked deligently to sell our home in the country! My husband and I were very insecure about the sale of our home because it was so far away from civilization, but through Trina's hard work with promoting our home to other realtors, and through her prayers for a sale, we were able to sell our home in under four months to a couple who had never even come to see the home prior to putting a contract on it! They had merely seen beautiful pictures of it online! Is that a miracle or what? That's All God - and that's All Trina!! She also showed almost 15 homes to us to buy and within a month after we sold our home, we found and bought our new home with Trina. If you want to see miracles happen for your home, you can believe that Trina and Doug (and God!) will make it happen!

We cannot express how grateful we are that we found Trina. She has been so helpful throughout the homebuying process. We never felt pressured or rushed. Trina was there to support us every time we saw a potential house. She is very honest and points out potential negatives and possible problems with houses so that we know what we are getting ourselves into. She made sure that we stuck to our requested budget and never showed us houses that were over our budget unless we specifically requested them. I would highly recommend her. She is very hard-working, and always there for the client. Any time that I would call or send a text message, she was always there to respond either immediately or as soon as possible. She is a very ethical and knowledgeable person and it makes the homebuying process so much easier when you have someone like that on your side.
Luna and Exel Rivera
Not enough words to describe how much we appreciate Trina and Doug. Trina has been our realtor on our two homes and she is a God send! I've known her for 16 years.....Knowing you can put the entire home selling/buying process in her hands and it all gets done is comforting. Having a normal realtor costs extra having Trina as your realtor is PRICELESS. -

Trina's expertise on the local market plus knowledge of working with builders resulted in an excellent price on a beautiful home, plus some wonderful free perks for us.
She is personable and very easy to work with, no high pressure sales here. Trina's integrity and work ethic will help you find the right home. We highly recommend you give her a call.
Mike Karen Zimmerman
Trina, was amazing! My husband and I being first time home buyers, Trina gave us all the knowledge and insight we needed for purchasing the new home my family and I happily live in. She has many resources for all the other little things you need throughout the process and all proved to be worthy of any recommendation from me. Trina is so knowledgeable on the different areas, and will be honest with you at any home. She will make sure you get the right home for you. She is very quick to respond to any questions you may have and I hope to work with her again on any future home buying or selling. Thank you for everything!
Sydney and Jesse Perez
Trina was referred by a friend of ours. I am so relieved to have found such an amazing realtor. Being out of the state and across the country, Trina made the selling of our house as easy as it could be. She was honest, very responsive and knowledgable.
How are you? I hope this email finds you well. Well, it's been a very long time since our short sale but I wanted to share some bit of good news related to that. Since you were so integral with our short sale I felt obligated to tell you. Back around Nov of 2011 after the short became official I checked my credit score and was mortified. My score dropped from being in the 800's down to the 590's.
It was a major drop but I knew we weren't buying soon so it was ok. Today was the first day I checked since that day and I'm happy to report that my credit score is in the mid 700's now. It's not excellent but it is certainly a good score and nothing that will interfere with buying a new home when we're ready so I'm very happy. I believe you were the one that said it would take about 2 years to get back and sure enough it's recovered nicely. I hope you can use this info with your other "short salers". Thank you again for everything you did for us back then.
You were the best!
I have bought several properties from Trina, including the home I live in. She also manages the investment properties that I bought through her. She has always been upfront and very helpful. I highly recommend her for any of your Real Estate needs.
Trina helped me buy my first house ten years ago and short sell it in 2013. She is amazing to work with. Honest, Loyal and GENUINE. She is very professional and knows how to execute Real Estate like nobodys business!
I've known Trina for 6 years and she has helped me with 2 homes and I highly recommend her to everyone. Recently my sisters home needed to be sold and closed in 3 weeks - Trina had the home shown to 15 different people in 3 days, 10 different offers and our deciding offer was for $6000 higher than we listed. Best part - we closed within 3 weeks of it being listed. Our God is so awesome and Trina is a wonderful example of how we should all serve the Lord
Georgia - 2nd house sold
We listed our home and signed a contract within a week. Trina handled everything from start to finish including needed repairs. The best experience I have ever had selling a home
Back in 2007 I had the pleasure of meeting one of the most heartfelt and
spirit lead Christians in my walk with the Lord and that wonderful Person
is Trina Koehler. Since meeting her and Doug she Not only helped with the purchase of my property in Sanford, she was the most instrumental person in my short sale of the very same property. When the real estate market tumbled so did the value of my home and I was faced with having to obtain employment in Texas. After vacating my house and knowing that My home was under Trina's care I Moved to Texas. Trina had tenants signed up to move in the day I moved out. For 1 1/2 years I was able to rent but it got to where my additional expense was too much. With Trina's knowledge and guidance I made the decision to list my house and pray for a short sale buyer. Literally, from that point on the Lord worked through Trina and the only thing I had to do was fill out paperwork for my mortgage company and PRAY!
Trina took care of everything; I ended up with an acceptable buyer after 6 months and the Closing happened 6 months later and only because my mortgage company delayed the process. Trina during the whole process communicated weekly with the mortgage company, the appraiser, the title company and my HOA Association and constantly kept me up to date. I really didn't have to get involved because I knew the Lord was in full control and That Trina was always taking his direction. Sometimes it was a little frustrating because the mortgage company was dragging their feet but I knew Trina knew what she
was doing and she was always supportive and there for prayer. I highly
recommend her and I know in my heart this could not have happened so
Smoothly were it not for her.
