Some may think: what does Thanksgiving and real estate have
in common? The answer is your home. As your home buying and selling experts,
Team Troy is dedicated to helping all our homeowners even after their transaction
is complete. For this reason, today’s post is dedicated to tips for home safety
on Turkey Day:
1. Cooking Fires: Thanksgiving would certainly seem to be a
reasonably risk-free holiday. That is, unless you happen to know that cooking
fires are more likely to happen on Thanksgiving than on any other day of the
year. In recent years, cooking fires were involved in more than 1,000 reported
home-structure fires annually on Thanksgiving, which is three times the
national average. Be sure to avoid distracted
cooking and make sure your oven and stovetops are clear of debris like dishtowels
and paper towels.
2. Fryer Problems: Frying a Turkey can be so
hazardous that some authorities recommend not even attempting it. If you must,
always fry the turkey outdoors, clear of building materials that could burn.
Fryers should only be used on flat surfaces and they should never be placed on
wooden decks or in garages. Don’t leave a fryer unattended and carefully
monitor the temperature of the oil. 3. Keep an eye on Fido: While it might seem
tempting to give your dog a turkey leg, apparently vets see many dogs on
Thanksgiving that have choked or ingested bones an actually require surgery. 4. Young Kids and Mischief: There will most likely
be quite a few more people and distractions in the home over the holidays. Be
sure that half-empty wine glasses and Uncle Ed’s special punch aren’t left
around for them to sneak into. Alcohol poisoning among youngsters is
especially common in the E.R. over the holidays. Also make sure relatives don’t leave medicines
lying around in plain sight, they look like candies to small kids. 5. Road Safety: Always consider getting a taxi or a
designated driver for holiday parties, and be especially vigilant on the roads
when driving late at night.

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.
Frequently, when talking about any new real estate market, you go in b
"When my husband and I began our home buying search, we both had decided we did NOT want a real estate agent until the last minute. We have never had a good experience with them and certainly didn't trust them. In fact, just prior to finding Team Troy, I had just fired one that came as part of a service. I was going to get a rebate to use their agent. They couldn't have paid me enough after the interaction with both her and her staff. Once again, she had her own agenda and wasn't listening. Our experience with Justin of Team Troy was completely the opposite. When I first spoke with him, he was advised from the start that we were not interested in having an agent, but just wanted someone to show us a house that his company had listed. After speaking with him for about 15 minutes, we changed our mind. Despite knowing that we weren't interested in an agent, he was obviously excited about what he did for a career. He educated us with no expectation of a return on his time. He was available and supportive through the entire process and I will be doing business with him and Team Troy again soon."
