Jason and Jennifer Evans, along with the management team of Trio Property Management, have several decades of combined management and operations experience.
Licensed 2004 in the state of Oregon as Property Managers, Jason and Jennifer created Trio Property Management Inc. (Trio) along with the mentorship of an expert in the field of property management. The “trio” recognized a need in the community to provide quality property management for single family homes up to four-plex units that combined both the experience of years in the field and use of new technology and systems. Currently, Jason and Jennifer (the duo from Trio) manage a thriving property management business servicing Eugene, Springfield, and the surrounding communities.

NARPM promotes a high standard of business ethics, professionalism, and fair housing practice. Jason and Jennifer earned the Residential Management Professional (RMP) designation. This designation ensures property owners that as licensed property managers, Jason and Jennifer have met specific and ongoing educational, experience, and volunteer requirements designed to protect their property owners beyond the minimum required to get a property management license. It sets them apart as leaders in the industry.

Meet the Team
Jason Evans, RMP® » Oregon Licensed Property Manager, Owner
Jason’s background is in the medical emergency response industry working as both a Registered Nurse in the Recovery room and Emergency Room, as well as a Firefighter/Paramedic. His proven ability to assess a situation and break down tasks has proven essential in the property management field. He has a knack for creating and refining systems to improve efficiency and maximize fiscal responsibility. As is common with many Firefighters’, Jason had initially started Trio on the side to keep him busy on his off days. But over time, word got out and the company grew. Jason left the medical industry in 2012 to focus all his energies and time into Trio. As lead Property Manager, he works closely with our property owners and properties. Jason manages the maintenance issues with our hand selected, high-quality, low-cost vendors, as well as with thoughtful planning supervises capital improvement projects. With his attention to detail and perseverance for excellence, he oversees the monthly owner reports to accurately reflect the owner’s monthly bottom line. His proven strategies and systems and internal desire to provide a service of value to the community have driven him to lead the company to grow and prosper and provide excellent customer service to owners and tenants.
Jason moved to the Eugene area in the mid 90’s and has been married to Jennifer since 1996. They have two children and are currently surviving the teen years. Jason’s passion is designing and refining systems (I know what you’re thinking-you’d understand if you met him). He also enjoys gardening, surfing and kite boarding along the Oregon coast; though he’d never turn down warmer waters!
Jennifer Evans, RMP® » Oregon Licensed Property Manager, Owner
Jennifer was licensed along with Jason in 2004. Her background is in non-profit management. She began her career working at Relief Nursery, a leader in the state of Oregon working to keep children in the community safe from abuse and neglect. She coordinated volunteers for the classrooms, transportation, and the Auxiliary community members whose primary focus was to create and organize various fund-raising events to benefit Relief Nursery programs. Her experience at the Relief Nursery gave her the opportunity to expand her skills to the larger non-profit community by coordinating University of Oregon undergraduate internships in non-profit agencies throughout Lane County. Her high attention to detail and excellent written and verbal communication skills is a great asset for maintaining the myriad of documents, records, and accounting needed for property management.
Jennifer moved to Eugene from the Portland area in the early 90’s attending the University of Oregon. She met Jason while playing Ultimate Frisbee “ultimately” leading to a fall wedding under the rain clouds of Eugene. Jason and Jennifer have been partners ever since as a married couple, as parents, and as business owners. Jennifer’s passions are listening and learning from business and self-improvement podcasts while running, strength training at Barre3, and eating healthy “clean” foods (with occasional chocolate covered caramels mixed in). She also enjoys lying on the beach with a good book while watching her husband ride the waves.
Holly Guardino » Oregon Licensed Property Manager
Holly comes to Trio after many years of owning and managing her own day spa in Eugene. Her experience in managing her own business and employing talented individuals brought great intuitive skills to the Trio table. She was looking for a change and a full time position and we quickly hired her as our Leasing Coordinator. It was clear to Jason & Jennifer that Holly’s strengths were being under-utilized and so Trio asked if she would be interested in becoming a Property Manager. Holly jumped on the opportunity, undertaking extensive training and testing through the State of Oregon in record time.
Holly grew up on the Oregon coast and is a lover of everything Oregon. She has been married for 27 years and is the mother of 2 beautiful daughters and grandmother of 2 exceptional little boys. Holly and her husband enjoy learning about wines from around the world, and traveling to wine-making countries to further their knowledge of wines. She will challenge anyone to a spirited game of backgammon and loves spending time with her amazing circle of friends.
Holly strives to be up-to-date and educated on all aspects of property management and Fair Housing and Landlord/Tenant laws. Holly is a proud member of Lane Leaders Association for the last 16 years.
Karin Mitchell » Oregon Licensed Property Manager
As a Licensed Oregon Property Manager, Karin brings with her the knowledge of owning a business and previous property management experience. She works hard, likes to stay busy and is excited to be back in this industry. Karin has a passion for helping people and she loves the excitement people get when moving into a new home. The unique features of homes and the decorating style individuals bring when moving into a new place make this career fun and exciting to Karin. Every day is a new adventure. Born and raised in Cottage Grove, Karin left for 18 years to live in the Portland area. During that time she worked as a leasing agent for a large company in Southwest Portland. She went back to school, eventually became a hair stylist, taught cosmetology and became a business owner.
Shortly after Karin moved to Portland, she met and married her UPS man. They have been married since 2000, their family became complete after having a boy and a girl. Making the choice to move from Portland as a family to the Eugene area in 2016 was fueled by wanting to be closer to Karin’s large extended family. As a family they enjoy being on the go, the Oregon coast is their favorite place to get away and yes, they love the cold ocean water.
Karin also advocates for Kids’ First organization in Eugene and you’ll find her playing 100 holes of golf in 1 day to support Kids’ First each fall. She is always up for a good challenge that benefits a charity she loves.
