Interview with Bert Han, Broker and Buyer’s Specialist at Team Troy, Keller Williams Greater Seattle

1. What is your job at Team Troy?

Bert Han: I’m a buyer’s specialist for Team Troy, so I help people who are looking to buy Seattle homes, find their new home.
2. Why did you get into real estate?
I had a job doing inspections for homes and I really enjoyed that. Real estate: I sort of stumbled into it. I realized, instead of inspecting homes, why not get into the business of actually selling homes. Also the fact that I really enjoy working with people and the process of helping them purchase their first home.
3. Why should some work with an agent to buy a house?
Bert Han: I think a buyer’s agent is very knowledgeable about the Seattle real estate market and can provide insight that is very helpful in the decision making process. Also, as many people will find out or already know, that buying a house is a huge transaction, so navigating through that process, the various contracts that are involved, it is very helpful when you have a buyer’s agent helping you. Lastly, a buyer’s agent is a problem solver. So, as things come up a buyer’s agent is there to help guide you through those challenges.
4. Why should someone work with Team Troy?

Bert Han: If you go to Team Troy’s website:, you’ll see that there is a 9-point difference about Team Troy. If you ready through that it tells a lot about the character of Team Troy. For me, the last point there is “selfless,” and it’s got a statement there that says, “Be Salt. Make Everyone Else Taste Better.” I really like that aspect, that character of Team Troy. For me, my goal is to always seek the best interests of the buyer, and I like that principle about Team Troy.

5. How is the Seattle real estate market right now? Any tips for a potential buyer?
Bert Han: The market right now is still a bit tight. There is relatively low inventory once again. A tip could be to really be focused. Two ways of doing that are number one, make sure that you have your pre-approval that will immediately set some parameters as far as what you can look for. Number Two: as much as possible, if you are able to identify the area, the location in which you would like to call your new home then that’s really good too. Then you can start checking out the amenities, the schools, the distance to your work, etc. Once you get those two things you can really conduct a narrow and focused home search, which will make the process a lot better.
6. How can someone contact you if they wanted to start looking for a house?
Bert Han: They can call me directly on my cell phone at 206-240-2573 or by email at or visit my website at
