I’m Trey Rider, an Eastern Shore native and Realtor and Partner at Meredith
Fine Properties. I’ve walked the streets of Easton my whole life, but never
dressed as a woman! What’s another first, though, after a year of big change
for the Rider family?
you know me from my years as a mortgage banker, working alongside my dad Rick
Rider. After 15 years on the financial side of the industry, I decided to
switch gears last year and become a Realtor and Partner with Meredith Fine
Properties. I couldn’t be more thrilled to serve the real estate needs of the
community in which I grew up!
graduating from Easton High School, I attended Washington College in
Chestertown, where I met my wife Kari, who owns the Easton-based event planning
and design company Kari Rider Events. Kari and I live on the Tred Avon River
with our sons Ivey and Nolan, who are following in their father and
grandfather’s lacrosse footsteps!
has always meant a lot to me, which is why I’ve dedicated much of my free time
to volunteering. I serve on the board of directors for the Mid-Shore Board of
Realtors, the Talbot Country Club and the Talbot Lacrosse Association, in
addition to volunteering with Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity and Character
couldn’t be more excited to add Talbot Hospice to this list. They provide
unparalleled care, compassion and support during a time of intense
vulnerability. I can’t say enough good things about the work they do!
personally witnessed the Hospice organization’s amazing work last year at the
end of my mother in law’s battle with pancreatic cancer. After a two-year
fight, Janice Pinkerton passed away in the care of Hospice last November. She
attended the Pump It Up for Hospice fundraiser with us many times over the
years, and battled to make it out for last year’s running. An amazing woman who
was loved by all, Pinky is sorely missed. I am both honored and saddened to be
running in her memory this year.
