What Troy's Clients are Saying...

I had a high quality experience selling my home with Troy.  He understands the market, and the prices the market will yield.  He did not always tell me things I wanted to hear -- he told me correct information that I needed to hear.  That is all someone can really ask for with their agent -- correct and truthful information. Leo Kulmaczewski - March, 2019
Troy Stukowski provided the best purchasing experience we have ever had. Troy is highly experienced, professional, and a natural at establishing rapport. 

While we originally thought we would interview multiple agents to work with, it was obvious from our first interview with Troy that there was no need to look any further. Even though we are experienced buyers and sellers at this point in our lives, Troy definitely brought information and skills  that were value added. 

In addition, I would say that Troy is an expert negotiator. We were always confident whenever he went to the negotiating table on our behalf. 

In the end, with Troy’s expert guidance, we purchased a fabulous home for the next phase of our lives. We would not hesitate to use Troy in the future, and absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase, or sell, a home. Troy goes above and beyond the rest!
Susanne Frey - February, 2019
Troy was wonderful to work with. He was very honest and upfront but also very patient. He knows the market and can explain things clearly, so that the whole process of finding a suitable house to rent and the administration process became as easy as possible. When you call him he always gets back to you right away . All in all we had a great experience.  Feri Paller, December 2018
