The Seattle area is buzzing with energy just coming off a huge Seahawks NFC championship game on Sunday. With the Superbowl on the horizon, football is what everyone is talking about. Not only has this Seattle Seahawks team captivated the city with its tremendous athleticism and talent on the field, but it's nice to see the passion the players have for the higher ideals of sportsmanship, teamwork, and perseverance. These are lessons that we all could stand to model, and that we try to bring to our own work in real estate here at Team Troy. To learn more about the ideals of our team, check out the Team Troy Difference.
Since we're in the business of buying, selling, and investing in real estate in the greater Seattle areas of Bothell, Woodinville, Kirkland, and the Eastside, we were interested to check out some of these incredible Seattle Seahawks homes. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live like a Seahawk?
Probably one of the most well-known Seattle Seahawks players is outspoken cornerback, Richard Sherman. This past spring, Sherman reportedly purchased this 2.3 millon dollar home in Maple Valley, WA. It is complete with a basketball hoop, an indoor pool, and three bedrooms with private decks. The home is pretty convenient to the Seahawks practice facility in Renton.
Another well-known Seahawks player is our steady kicker, Steven Hauschka, who resides in a cottage style home in Kirkland, WA. Many homes in Kirkland have views of nearby Lake Washington and are walkable to a downtown commercial district.
Are you curious about the hawks' fearless leader, Pete Carroll? Coach Carroll purchased this lovely home on Hunt's Point for 5.9 million back in the spring. It boasts 75 feet of waterfront property, has a boat dock and its own beach. It's a custom built home with plenty of bells and whistles, including a heated outdoor patio and a private detached guest suite. Hunt's Point is located near Bellevue and Medina, north of Clyde Hill on the Eastside.
There are plenty of other Seahawks players who have set down roots in the Puget Sound. For example, Seattle tight end, Zach Miller's 2.1 million dollar home in Bellevue boosts this cozy living room with a large stone fireplace. Now if he could just get off the injured list...
What about one of our favorite defensive players, Earl Thomas? He lives in a lovely $925,000 home in Renton, WA near the Seahawks practice facility. The home's billiards room is a prominent feature, with a wet bar and a roaring fireplace.
Everyone's favorite runningback, Beast Mode Marshawn Lynch doesn't stay local in the off season. Lynch just bought a 3.6 million dollar home down in Richmond, California near his native Oakland. This contemporary style house is located on the bay and features water views from nearly every room in the house. The lovely wine cellar, movie theater and private dock are stand-out amenities in this 7,000 square foot home.
As for our hardworking quarterback, Russell Wilson? Word on the street is that after his rookie season is over this year, he might be in the market for a new Seattle area home with his new contract.

TEAM TROY, we are a bunch of fanatics that happen to be really good in the Seattle real estate business. Sure we could exploit systems, alter perceptions, and make more money for the sake of having more, but that’s boring – everyone does that. We’ve come to realize that work should be about increasing our standard of giving, not our standard of living. What keeps us going is our daily fear of dropping dead while doing something useless. We continually aim to be better agents, better neighbors, better partners, better parents, and better people with the singular goal of making folks like you better off than you were before you met us.

"I've known Troy for over 10 years now. He's helped us purchase two homes and sell one. We trust his judgement and feel he is in-tune with the market and the swift changes that can occur. My wife and I were blown away by his willingness to go above and beyond in all aspects of the sale. We recently recommended him to a neighbor and received similar feedback. Bottom line... We were very impressed with Troy. He made our buying and selling experience smooth and even fun. We recommend him to anyone we know who is buying or selling a home."
