When searching for an area to purchase a new home, we've found that many buyers are are looking for some of the same things. A good school district is usually high on the list, followed by proximity to work. But then what? It's food, of course! With today's busy lifestyles, people are looking for convenient and easy, but also healthy and fresh when it comes to meals. Buyers want to be close to amenities like restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, grocery stores, and farmer's markets.
Since many farmer's markets are closing up shop for the season pretty soon, go grab some seasonal produce while the markets are open in your area. Luckily, several of the markets here in Seattle are open year-round, so you can get that farm fresh fare anytime. Team Troy is counting down the area's top farmer's markets with all the details you need to find that taste of the Pacific Northwest in your neighborhood.

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.

Frequently, when talking about any new real estate market, you go in b
"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."
