Coral Springs Policetold the media that Raymond Wesley Reese was charged with first-degree murder for killing Trost.
Reese shot 40-year-old Trost multiple times while she sat in the driver’s seat of her Jeep. She parked her car outside the home waiting to show the property where Reese had previously lived. Paramedics called to the scene were unable to save her.
Trost was a British ex-pat. She owned and operated 1% Lists SoFlo. 1% Lists SoFlo was discount real estate brokerage in Coral Springs. The single mom was enjoying success in the hot Florida real estate market.
“Is it a crazy time for real estate? YES!,” she posted on her business’s Facebook pageon Thursday morning, hours before she was killed. “But even so, just when you think it will ‘slow down for the holidays’… errrrm… NO!”
She went on to describe a property she listed on Monday “thinking it will be so quiet…. totally wrong!” she wrote. “Just goes to show… never underestimate the power of a gorgeous home in a low-supply and high-demand area! Congrats to the lucky buyer!
