Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Omaha, NE.
We found a house we loved but needed to sell our current home first. We got Troy Trumm's name from a friend that had used him to sell her home. He did an awesome job of guiding us in preparing our home and marketing our home and as a result we got a full price offer the first day. He and his team handled everything that came up and stayed in touch with us all the way to closing. The fast sale of our home meant that we didn't miss out on the home of our dreams. If you need to sell a home in Omaha, call Troy. He knows what he is doing!

Troy and the entire Trumm Team were great to work with. We wanted to sell our house in 2 – 3 months, but we were facing a buyer’s market, and put our home on the market just after Thanksgiving. Troy helped us find a buyer in under 6 weeks. Troy was always available for questions or to give us updates. He made sure at touch base with us at least every two weeks to give us feedback and updates. Either he or someone on his staff was letting us know what was happening at regular intervals. The marketing services he used for our home went way beyond our expectations and what we were used to. He provided a professional stager who gave us excellent suggestions on how to get our home ready. We loved her help so much we will be using her services in our new home for additional painting and decorating ideas. If you haven’t sold a house before or it has been over 10 years, Troy will amaze you. He is professional, ready to earn your business, and get your house sold. Troy won’t tell you want you want to hear just to get your business. He will give you honest answers and tell you what needs to be done to get your house sold. There were so many times we were ready to back out of our deal because we were to emotionally involved with the overall selling process and stressed out with the negotiations, selling process, and the buyers. Each time, Troy put some perspective on the situation, got us back in the game, and back in selling mode. I am sure other realtors would have given up on us, but not Troy. Troy has a vast array of resources to help with any of the issues that may arise with selling or buying a house to help with home staging, cement, Radon Services, general contractors, carpets, painting, and the list goes on and on. Based on our experience with these companies, we will be hiring some of them to do work on our new house. We have already recommended Troy and the Trumm Team to two of our friends and will gladly recommend him to anyone we know who wants to sell their home.
abundance of pictures and descriptions in the listing
mailings that reached a broad area
Agent incentives to that got a lot of traffic through our house
Flyers on our yard sign looked very nice
Honesty about what our house should be listed at
Use of a home stager to make sure our house looked it's best
Lower fee than other Real Estate firms and agents in town
Weekly updates on our selling status
Showing feedback website to track showings and get agent/buyer feedback
Reliability and fast responses to phone calls and email
Our home sold in 45 days (during a very cold & very snowy winter), which allowed us to meet our contract on our new home and move with ease. We didn't have to worry about two mortgage payments. Other agents always seemed to focus more on getting themselves business instead of selling our house. We continue to refer friends and family to the Trumm Team.

When I decided to sell my home I met with a few real estate agents. I quickly became disgusted with realtors. None of them bothered to understand my situation or listen to my concerns. All they wanted to do was push me into signing paperwork. Few of them even had any information to help me price my home and even fewer of them had a marketing plan. None of them provided any proof of having any knowledge or skill in selling homes. They were worse than used car salesmen!
Needless to say when I met with Troy Trumm I was skeptical and maybe even a little hostile (sorry Troy). I quickly warmed up to him however. He asked insightful questions and listened to my answers. He showed me his detailed marketing strategy, explained the steps involved in selling and went over a ton of information to help me price my home correctly. He never pressured me and he took the time to answer all of my many questions. It was obvious that he not only knew what he was doing but also cared more about me than making a sale.
He has a calm intensity about him that gave me great confidence, unlike the other agents that had an abundance of enthusiasm but nothing to back it up with. I listed my home with him that day.
I was amazed at how quickly he and his team got my home on the market. In less than a week I had an offer in hand and could move on with my life.
THANK YOU, TROY! You did a phenomenal job. I have already referred 2 of my friends to you. The next time I move I will be calling you (and only you).
We appreciate the time he spent with us on our initial contact with him. He gives a good presentation of what he can do for you that makes him stand out from other Realtors. Since we were not successful in selling our home the first time (on the market for 120 days) we took it off for 2 months before putting it back on the market and listing it with Troy. He was able to sell it within 15 days. Now we can move forward in building our dream home.
Troy was very helpful. He quickly responded to all of our questions. The closing kept being delayed and you kept us updated. You made many phone calls for us. I would recommend Troy to be your real estate agent.

Troy and his team were incredible to work with! Any questions or concerns we had, he and his team were quick to respond. Our house was listed within a couple days of meeting Troy, and we immediately got calls for showings. Our house was only listed for a couple days before we got the first offer!
Thanks to Troy and his team for being so professional and doing such a great job to sell our house so quickly!

When my wife and I were thinking about selling our house, we honestly thought we were way over our heads. Luckily I was recommended by a co-worker to use Troy and his team. I was sold on selecting Troy from the first time I met him. He was so professional and knowledgable about our neighborhood before we actually met face to face. We sold our home in 9 days with Troy's help and in during the winter as well in Omaha, Ne. We thought it would take a few moths to sell if not longer. The automated services offered were phenomenal! Email notifiactions and online showing notifiactions setup by Troy's team, really made my wife and extremely happy and relieved. I would definitely recommend Troy Trumm to anyone. He actually went a step further and put me in touch with a realtor in Texas where we recently moved and his services were excellent as well. Save yourself time and money and restless nights, we all know how stressful moving can be, choose Troy and his team, you won't regret it!
