Do you remember hopping in the family truckster and driving
around town looking at lights during the holiday season? It’s a fun and
nostalgic thing to do around town, and now you can just follow the Team Troy
guide to Christmas lights viewing and off you go:
1.Candy Cane Lane, Ravenna: A tried and true Seattle lights
scene is located on NE Park Road, just past 20th. Each house goes
over the top in this northeast Seattle neighborhood. At least 25-30 houses are decked out in
lights and decorations, and there is even a hot cocoa stand set up before you
enter. The best part? It’s free! 2. Olympic Manor: It is actually a part of the HOA that you
decorate your house for the holidays. If
you grew up in Seattle, odds are Olympic Manor’s reputation precedes
itself. Start at Northwest 85th
Street and 23rd Avenue Northwest in Greenwood.
3. Kerry Park Viewpoint: After driving through the display of
the old Victorian homes on Queen Anne hill, head to Kerry Park for the best
view of the lighted Christmas tree a top the Space Needle. It’s free too. 211
W. Highland Drive, Seattle, WA. 4. Woodinville Wonderland, 23620 NE 183rd Street in
Woodinville. Many homes claim, to have the best holiday lights, but this one
consistently makes it to the top of visitor’s lists with over 100,000
lights. The family spends about a month
setting this up and collects donations for the Special Olympics. 5. Timberline Neighborhood in Sammamish: This neighborhood gets
a lot of buzz each year. Residents deck out their homes in lights displays
including a Grinch House and the Polar Bear Express Station at N.E. 42nd
Street and 204th Avenue N.E.
Displays: 1. Spanaway Park: The Pierce County Parks and Recreation puts
on quite a lights show in its two-mile drive-through display. There are over

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.
Discover our 9 point difference:
“Here at TeamTroy we have found that when we make our only goal, that of making others around us better off than they were before they met us, then everything else just falls in line. This simple mindset protects us from the status quo in real estate, and keeps us obsessed with results.”
Reach out to us today, and find out what you have been missing!
//WISE. Good judgement. Make important choices despite ambiguity. Always strategize.
//OPEN. No walls. Ensure everyone we meet has the same idea of who we are.
//IMPACT. Life is never about us. We strive to make a difference in at least one person’s life daily.
//CURIOUS. Hate the status quo. Learn something from everyone.
//CREATIVE. Challenge the traditional. Incessantly innovate around obstacles and design simplicity.
//BRAVE. Today is not just another day. Never be afraid to try what no one else will do.
//TENACIOUS. Never quit. As others drop back, we run faster.
//CANDID. Honest and blunt. Never alter perceptions but adjust the context.
//SELFLESS. Be salt. Make everything else taste better.

"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."
