Top Agent Troy Walseth – Owner of the Lockhart Walseth Team at Keller Williams Realty Gulf Beaches in Treasure Island, Florida and Owner The Walseth Team at Keller Williams Realty Seminole in Seminole, Florida– is a hardworking, dedicated Realtor who has nearly three decades of industry experience under his belt. Specializing in all aspects of the business – from residential, commercial, new construction, investments and beach front properties – Troy has earned his incredible reputation as a trusted advocate for his many buyers and sellers in The Sunshine State’s Pinellas County.
Troy began his journey in real estate in 1993, following a career working in sales at Best Buy. “The company ended commission sales,” recalls Troy, “and they offered me a management position for only $20k a year. That’s when I decided to get my license and jump into real estate.”
Since then, Troy has built a thriving business on a foundation of honesty, integrity and unparalleled customer service, overseeing a large team of equally dedicated agents who share his client-first business ethos. “I have great people around me,” he says. “I have an incredible team. We have two locations, with my wife Teri managing our Treasure Island location and our son Chase managing our Seminole office. I oversee the entire team while still acting as a producing agent. my team members and administrators have seen more than 2000 transactions in the past seven or eight years. I think that sets us apart: everyone has a very unique job to do to help our clients, and they are very focused on that.”
Currently, the lion’s share of Troy’s business is based on repeat customers and referrals, a highly accurate barometer of the impressive level of service he and his team of agents and administrative personnel provide. “It’s because we give our clients white glove service,” says Troy, when asked how he has managed to inspire so much trust and loyalty amongst his buyers and sellers. “That’s how we built our business, and that’s how we continue to grow our business. Our clients return to us because they had a great experience, and also because we stay in contact with them long after the closing table.”
As evidence of this excellent service, one needs to look no further than Troy and his team’s perfect overall five-star rating on Zillow.com, comprised of scores of glowing testimonials, including this one: “Troy feels more like a friend than a realtor! In my experience, he was always honest and upfront. It was my first time buying a home and Troy made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process and, as such, I would happily recommend him to my friends and family.”
There are many factors that come into play when assessing Troy’s stellar success (he and his team are on track to sell a whopping 225 units in 2020 alone), and chief among them would be his excellent negotiation skills and thorough, intelligent marketing strategies – including deft usage of social media platforms and targeted advertising – all of which combined translate into fast sales for top dollar, not to mention happy buyers and sellers.
When he’s not working, Troy enjoys nothing more than spending time with his wife and his dog, and also taking friends and team members on outings on their boat.
Troy is truly passionate about what he does for a living. “My team and I work hard, and we show up for our clients every day,” he says.
