Troy Dana worked tirelessly for me to accomplish the sale of part of my 1,739 Acre Ranch in Tenino, Washington. [This property is a] 52 Acre, 43 building Equestrian Center with mostly older buildings, built in the 50's & 60's. The Equine Estate market is lower demand in today’s market. [The buyer] required a lot of Troy's time - months to put the deal together. There were many ups and downs and buyer fatigue, but Troy always found a way to keep the buyer at the table. To give you one example: Towards the end of the battle there was a one month negotiated easement agreement between the Buyer, Conservation fund/WDFW, myself and 3 Attorneys to reach an agreement we all would accept. Only Troy could have navigated this impossible task but he did with maybe a few more grey hairs. To sum it up, Troy has exceptional understanding of complicated [Real Estate] situations, contemplates deeply on how to resolve problems and defects that always arise and always keeps his cool and professional posture.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Troy Dana and Paul Valentine of Fey Ranches. They were both excellent to work with. Throughout the transaction they maintained open communication, were approachable, prompt and consistently kept us up to date with what was going on. There were several moving parts and different parties involved, which at times made it quite challenging. However, with Troy and Paul’s knowledge and expertise, they handled the transaction with ease. They were able to navigate and guide all involved, while keeping the bigger picture, and end goal in mind. They genuinely listened to our needs and addressed each and every one of them. Consistently reassuring us our voice was being heard. I admired their positive outlook and honest disposition, but was most impressed with how they were able to creatively resolve issues to ensure all parties were satisfied and relentlessly worked to get this deal closed. I look forward to working with them again in the future!

I have worked with Agent Troy Dana on many transactions, from the simple to the highly complicated and fraught. Troy does not waste time or belabor unnecessary points, allowing transactions to be as straightforward and efficient as possible. However, Troy also does not fail to engage in transaction details and complications when necessary, always with the goal of getting the best deal for his client in the end. He is aggressive and tireless in his service to his customers. I highly recommend Troy Dana for any real estate transaction up to and including the most complex.
