If you are a beneficiary, you are entitled to a copy of the trust. You should see a lawyer experienced in trust litigation.

First, find out from the County Recorders Office whether there was, in fact, a change in ownership to the Trust. Contact her physician and see if they feel she was mentally competent around the time of the transfer.Then write the realtor handling the sale and tell them you do not know but there may be a problem with the sale of the property as you have not seen a copy of the Trust and have no idea whether the Trustee has the legal right to dispose of the property. Do not claim to know anything about the power to sell as that might give him a cause of action against you [that is why you do it in writing as it shows exactly what you did say].At the same time, tell him [what is his relationship to your mother] you believe you might be a beneficiary of the Trust so you need a copy or you will presume that you are and will move to stop the sale. Then you can re-post again as to what the exact present situation is.
