This was our first time to buy a home but it was not our first time trying! We had a lot of trouble with completing the process when we tried to use our VA Loan. So I looked online and found Troy, who knows well the ins and outs of the VA process. His professional attitude and expertise really helped to alleviate our fears. Troy has contractor experience as well, which I found especially useful, as he could easily spot potential troubles in a home. Overall, working with Troy was a great experience.
We finally bought our first home, and it only took 4 weeks from offer to closing! Thanks Troy!

Troy has been an absolute ally throughout our whole selling process.
He has, without a doubt, been our "insider" friend that we all wish we could have anytime we need assistance in navigating a very stressful process. Troy's expertise made us feel confident in the decisions we were making, from our proposed sell-price to navigating the closing costs. From the moment we decided to work with Troy, he has been a true professional. He has made himself available every time we needed his advice. We recommend Troy to anyone who needs to sell quickly at the best sell-price possible.
Thank you Troy for being such a reliable and cool person.

Selling your home of 25 years can be an emotional experience. Troy Doty was both sensitive and professional. Troy is a busy man, but he never rushed a conversation. He made us feel valued. I felt like I could ask any question. It was a pleasure working with Troy from start to finish. I would highly recommend him and his team!

Troy was fantastic in helping me to locate and close on my condo as a first-time veteran homebuyer. He communicated with me throughout the entire process, and his knowledge of every small detail provided a stress-free environment for me. I would highly recommend Troy to anyone looking for a new property!

Thank you Troy for your assistance in selling my townhome recently. You did an amazing job with my place in presenting it to buyers. I appreciated your knowledge and strong negotiation skills as you navigated with me on the sale of my property. I would highly recommend Troy to others.

Troy is above and beyond any real estate agent I have ever worked with. His knowledge of the real estate business, current markets, resale priorities were top notch during the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old. He was friendly and approachable while at the same time prompt and professional. As long as we are in the area and he is still in business Troy will be our real estate agent.

Wes & Kristin

Veteran Home Buyer & Seller

We chose Troy after interviewing multiple realtors and checking his references. Besides having a more reasonable fee structure, Troy stood out and impressed with his common sense and quick, practical observations. Troy noticed multiple issues that other realtors either failed to notice or did not mention prior to signing us as clients. From the beginning, Troy was "working" and multiple of his suggestions worked very well for our situation. And that was prior to us signing with Troy. This proactive approach allowed us more time to address issues in a timely manner. Troy was responsive and flexible. He had excellent follow-up and follow-through. He worked with our busy schedule and accommodated us living out of the area. Troy made the process less stressful. He stayed calm, pragmatic and realistic. We think that Troy represented our interests skillfully during the sale's negotiation. We benefitted from Troy's professional connections (he has a contractor license). Thanks to Troy's connections we were able to deal with an issue in a short time frame. We appreciate Troy facilitating such a quick turn around on an unanticipated repair issue. Troy even checked up on the house on some occasion and was conscientious about security matters. We are pleased to have worked with Troy, would work with him again and recommend him. Thank you, Troy!

Troy is phenomenal at his job. He was recommended to us by our mortgage broker and we are so thankful for the connection. Troy worked with us to sell our home and to buy a new home. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable and skilled at his job. His deep understanding of the housing market combined with top notch negotiation skills enabled us to sell our home well above asking with multiple offers in just two days. He worked with us to appropriately stage the home for photos, mitigate the health risk of showing our home during COVID-19, and skillfully managed all the incoming offers. In addition, his open communication and guidance helped us feel comfortable with every decision. Troy also helped us purchase our dream home during a very competitive seller’s market. He learned of the home through his network and helped us buy it before it hit the market, thereby avoiding a multi-bidder situation. We love our new home and cannot fully express our appreciation of Troy and all that he did for our family!

Use Troy as your realtor! Troy was extremely knowledgeable and responsive from the start of our sale to the close. Troy knows Portland! Troy continually helped ease our stress with constant follow up. We most definitely could not have done this without him!

As a first time VA buyer. Troy was extremely knowledgeable of the local market. We found our perfect home. Troy and his team provided the daily updates that enabled me to search a variety of homes in our search criteria.

Bill Hamblin

Veteran Home Buyer

Our experience with Troy as our realtor was exceptional. He always was a step ahead, explained every step of the process in depth and made sure we understood everything. He always made himself available whenever we had questions or concerns. He always had our best interests in front of every conversation with the banks, the sellers, and the seller's representatives. Even a month after close he is still in contact with us making sure that we are happy with our purchase. I will be using Troy again with any of our real estate needs, and would strongly recommend him to any of my family or friends

Beth and I want to express how appreciative we are for all the help and expertise you provided during the sale of our home in SE Portland. Your website is terrific and the way you advertised our home was done so tastefully and presented it in the most attractive manner possible. Your advice on contractors and procedures was invaluable during the remodel of the bathrooms. During the whole process of the sale you continually exhibited professionalism, integrity, and a warm, caring, friendly manner. Many, many thanks for all your help and for being a friend

Gerry Thomas and Elizabeth Collings

Veteran Home Seller

This was our first house buying experience and Troy was our third or fourth Realtor that we saw houses with. The first time we met he slowed the process down for us and walked us through the steps, complete with explanations of the various types of houses for sale (short sales, foreclosed, etc). He was always very upfront with us, offering his expertise after we had seen a house, giving us estimates of what he thought it would take to make it into what we wanted. Troy gave us the space we needed to look at houses and never said they were quaint or charming but offered important advice on what looked like it might need updated or reminded us to check for recent service to furnaces, water heaters etc. Troy always answered his phone or got back to you within hours, not days. It felt like Troy really wanted to find you the house you wanted, and was truly interested in that rather than making a sale.

There is no better professional in the real estate business than Troy Doty. From the first phone call to the last closing detail, Troy was knowledgeable, extremely responsive, and able to solve whatever problem that came up. Troy is down to earth and has a wonderful sense of humor, and was just so easy to work with. I have been around awhile and sold many properties. No one I ever worked with compares to Troy Doty.

Home Seller

Troy knows the real estate business in Portland like the back of his hand. He came for our first appointment to consider listing my home on Monday afternoon. By Tuesday evening he had a full book with the comparable homes for my area, the amount I could qualify for on a new home, his marketing strategy, references, how much I could expect to net from my sale. I was stunned by the amount of information he was able to put together so quickly and thoroughly Troy uses technology to its fullest. I was notified by email each time a property fitting my needs came on the market. All documents were sent over the computer on DocuSign. Troy and his team are available by phone or email 7 days a week. Troy also makes everything easy. He arranged for all my repairs on my home to be done without me having to lift a finger. I never had to be present for things to get done. Troy and his team simultaneously closed my old and new property at the same time which saved me money and time. After using Troy Doty you will never consider anyone else. I am so grateful to have had him to guide me through the sale of my old property and purchase of a new one, He is the best. Use him!!!

I chose Troy to help me purchase a home because of his expertise and knowledge .I found Troy well informed, efficient, professional, and personable. He would give me his pros & cons of each property, which helped me in evaluating the property. If he did not know an answer, he would find out or direct me to the best source. He listened to what I desired in a home, and helped find that ideal home. He gave good advice on how strong an offer needed to be to help make it happen. He had the patience to search through more homes, when I was not perfectly satisfied. Today, I have a nice retreat I can call home which I am thrilled with! Troy took extra steps to assure all went smoothly to close escrow on time. I would highly recommend Troy.

Veteran Home Buyer

I met Troy when he responded to an inquiry I submitted on Zillow. He made a good impression but I only met with him briefly. I later began working with another agent that a co-worker had strongly recommended to me. I worked with her for almost three months but never felt 100% comfortable with her services. She did not seem to understand my priorities or the market in the part of the city I wanted to buy in. When I finally decided to quit working with her (and almost gave up on the process all together, believing I would never find anything) I thought of Troy and how responsive and prompt he had been. I contacted him and we began working together more seriously. Within days we found and visited a home that fit my needs perfectly. He involved me in the process of writing the offer and I truly felt that he was looking out for my family's best interests. He was sensitive to the fact that I was a first time home buyer and that my finances were limited. The sale went through and Troy proved to be supportive and knowledgeable throughout the buying process. Working with him was a GREAT experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering buying a home. Thank you Troy.
