Troy Kerr Real Estate Group
Your Local Real Estate Expert
As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.
I began my career as a real estate broker in 2006. Before working as a broker, I was in this industry — with positions at Stewart Title and in property management. Prior to this, I earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Western Washington University. Now, I work with my team in John L. Scott’s Kent North office under the Troy Kerr Real Estate Group.
My approach in real estate is centered on excellent service and truly serving as an educational resource for my clients in everything real estate related. It’s important to me to educate myself on what is going on in our local real estate market, which means knowing my numbers and keeping up-to-date with current trends. My clients benefit from this because my ongoing education allows me to win more often in multiple-offer scenarios, advise sellers to price properties appropriately and list at the most advantageous times to maximize their success.
I work with all types of clients and properties in areas including Seattle, Normandy Park, Kent, Burien, Des Moines and West Seattle. When working with sellers, I take high quality photos, provide staging advice and maximize exposure through John L. Scott’s Listing Launch program. As part of this, I invite neighbors to the open house weekend and also distribute promotional postcards in the neighborhood and to my database.
My passions outside of work include scuba diving, traveling, playing basketball, fishing and boating. I also love being in and around water, as well as camping and hiking. I’m inspired by helping others, my kids, traveling, mentoring, tropical destinations and real estate investing!
A short drive, but a world away, West Seattle has its own sense of community while still feeling like an integral part of Seattle. Whether you are here to enjoy the beaches at Alki and Lincoln Park, to shop at the Junction, or to make a home, you’ll find a neighborhood pride and close-knit community unlike any other in the Pacific Northwest. True to its name, West Seattle lies to the west of downtown Seattle, and it can be accessed from the heart of Seattle via the West Seattle Bridge or a passenger-only water taxi. West Seattle is surrounded on three sides by the waters of Puget sound. All this water provides many aquatic activities, and our part of Seattle features some of the best views of the Olympic and Cascade mountains, not to mention the view of the beautiful Seattle skyline. In a lot of ways, West Seattle feels like a beach town. A summer stroll along Alki provides plenty of opportunities to watch beach volleyball players, dine on fresh seafood, and take in the sun. The Fauntleroy ferry near Lincoln Park will whisk you away to Vashon Island or the west Sound. West Seattle is also home to great schools, parks and shopping as well. If you’re looking for beaches, great restaurants, cute boutiques, and a small town vibe, West Seattle might be just the place for you. If you’d like to learn more about West Seattle, let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.
“Troy and his team made the selling of our house a very positive experience as they extracted the maximum market value from our house while streamlining the selling process. His professionalism and communication throughout the process was first class! We look forward to working with Troy and his team for purchasing our next home and highly recommend him.”
– Justin H.
“Drawing from our 20+ years of buying/selling of 20+ personal properties in the Seattle-Bellevue metropolitan/Northwest Washington area and have been working with a handful of agents, we find Troy Kerr to be the best of the best of realtors. He is knowledgeable and does his research to keep abreast of constant changes in the local market. He is always attentive/responsive to our questions/requests. He recently listed and sold my vacation house that is not in a ‘hot market’ zone within a few months. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Troy Kerr and his team for your real estate needs.”
“We have sold and bought three houses with Troy. I can say with confidence that he will do what needs to be done to get the best price. He is super friendly and a hard worker. I recommend him to all my friends! He is awesome. I had so many questions and he always took time to answer them.”
