Pinned Recommendation
Trey is fantastic! He was thorough, professional, informative, and wonderful to work with. He understood my situation and helped me find the right home for my needs. Trey always kept me apprised about the home buying process and was always honest and forthright - no games. Trey will always be my number #1 realtor recommendation.
Trey recently helped us sell my father in law's home in University Place. He came highly recommended to us and exceeded our expectations. Trey went above and beyond on numerous occasions, which was incredibly helpful given we were often out of town during the process. Trey was knowledgeable, honest, thorough and just an all-around good guy to work with. Would definitely recommend Trey and his team to our friends and family that need an agent. Thanks for a job well done!

Trey went above and beyond my expectations. He helped me sell my home of 30 years! He listened to my needs, and I listened to his recommendations, having done so, my house was sold within a week. Selling or purchasing a home, I recommend Trey!
Thank you, Trey, from the bottom of my heart!

Trey Affolter is The top tier professional.
No one in this area knows more about the market trends and the surrounding communities.
Trey has facilitated several home and land purchases for me, he is the only realtor in this area I will work with.
Trey makes the nightmare part of buying a home the easier part.
Trey was outstanding and I highly recommend him. He listened to what I was saying and asking for. He provided suggestions and options to me that were right on target. Very professional at all times and always responded quickly to my questions. Not to mention a great sense of humor, which is invaluable in today's world! It helped ease the stress of selling a home.
So thankful for the opportunity to work with Trey! He was patient, understanding and put in the time and research to help us find a home that met all of our family’s needs. Relocating from across the country is an overwhelming task and finding a home in an unfamiliar area quickly was our biggest concern. We can thank being able to secure our dream home on the first offer in this market to a bit of luck but mostly to Trey. Creating long lasting relationships with other agents is crucial and Trey illustrated that perfectly with the ease of buying our home. Thank you so much, Trey!
Trey did an amazing job helping me purchase my new home. He answered all of my questions and went above and beyond to check out the places to make sure I got the home that was right for me
Owner, Accel Mortgage
Trey is a true professional with a deep knowledge of the real estate market. The last three years has been a difficult market for buyers and sellers and Trey’s calm, knowledgeable demeaner provides comfort to buyers and sellers alike. Most importantly, he always has his client’s' best interest in mind and listens closely to their needs and wants. During this tough market it has not been easy getting under contract but Trey is a master negotiator and, more often than not, comes out on the winning side of the bidding. If you have the pleasure of working with Trey, it will be very clear that he has 25+ years of experience in real estate.

It was such a pleasure working with Trey! Trey was very personable and helped make a smooth first time home purchase for our mutual client! Trey is an amazing real estate professional and I look forward to working with him again in the future!
From the moment we sat down to discuss the sale of our house, it was clear Trey was going to be our agent. His knowledge of the buying/selling market, statistics, home values in University Place, and surrounding areas backed in writing gave us confidence that we were speaking to an agent who is knowledgeable and did his research. If there was something out of the ordinary we inquired about, he didn't just give us an "off-the-cuff" response, he researched his resources and provided us with cogent, valid answers.

Due to Trey's expertise of the market, and his detailed listings of our house we managed to sell it in two days, despite (at our request), a no "For Sale" sign be placed on our lawn.

Once we sold our home Trey was there every step of the way We were moving out of state so it was important to conclude the sale as smoothly and expeditiously as possible. Trey made this happen and we are grateful.

We have recommended Trey to two of our friends who are planning to sell their houses this year. One of whom has already started a dialog about the imminent sale of their house.

Trey worked with our interest at hand. Thank you, Trey.
Trey is a fantastic realtor and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. My husband and I walked into the experience of purchasing our first home last summer with very little knowledge, and Trey led us through the experience while answering our questions, making sure we knew everything we needed to know, and being an excellent advocate for our best interest. His industry connections made a huge difference to our experience—he connected us with a lender that offered us a competitive rate, an inspector that thoroughly checked our house, and a contractor that took care of our home repair needs. Trey has proactively checked in and answered questions we’ve had since we closed made sure we were set up with information we needed in this first year as homeowners. We would absolutely recommend Trey to anyone who is interested in purchasing or selling property and work hands down work with him again. Buying a first home can be inherently stressful, but Trey made our experience a positive one. It makes a world of difference to work with a realtor you can trust.
Trey was invaluable in getting our house sold. From thorough initials and walk-through s to recommendations to staging for presentation and in depth analysis and review of applicable comp sales, he was accurate detailed and correct.Thoroughly trustworthy with great market knowledge and a true willingness to work with you.
Thanks to Trey, we sold our home in 2 days, with no hassle. Highly recommend !!
Trey has been a fantastic resource throughout my first home purchase--he took the time to reach out, answer all of my questions, and connect me with a trustworthy and experienced agent in the area I ended up buying in, and he has continued to check in over the past couple of months to make sure all has gone and is going well. I truly couldn't be happier with my experience and my beautiful home and I'm so grateful that Trey took the time and effort to share his expertise and connections. I would definitely recommend him as a resource or an agent to anyone just getting into the home-buying process!
The best realtor we’ve ever had. I can genuinely say he cares about his clients. He quickly understood what we were looking for when it came to our first home purchase, and we trusted him so much when we moved to Virginia on military orders; he also helped sell the same home while we were out of state. He is very knowledgeable in the business and the area. I would not recommend anyone else but Trey!
We worked with Trey when we bought our house. He was professional, and hard working doesn’t fully describe how hard he worked for us.
Then 8 years later Trey sold the house. The pictures were amazing, all the extras he did made our house sell for over over asking. We moved the TX and he helped us get in contact with agent to buy a house there. He cared for us in WA and in TX, and he will care for you too.
This review will probably sound pretty sappy but it is exactly how I feel about the service that was provided to me.

Trey is an excellent realtor!

He knows the industry at a very deep level and was very empathetic to my circumstances. I sold and bought in the crazy Great Sellers market.

Trey is one of those all around solid individuals. He was always available to answer any questions or to hear my concerns. I was kept informed on the fast paced details on both sides of the market. He never steered me wrong, gave me incorrect information, or painted an unrealistic picture of the future. For 3 weeks, he drove me around looking at houses and educating me on the many differences of said houses. Trey also educated me on the industry while encouraging me to educate myself on various aspects.

In observing other realtors, handling of their clients in my house journey, I was extremely thankful and fortunate to have Trey on my side. With his team, I always felt like I was winning even when I was losing offers. Or when a buyer tried to strong arm me, he stopped them in their tracks. He would also continue working with sale-side realtors negotiating on my behalf.

Trey also has a collection of organizations that he trusts and likes to work with. These folks did a fantastic job staying on top of all the legal needs, which resulted in a smooth sale of my home and a smooth purchase of my new home, once I found it.

As long as Trey is still in the business, I will never go to a different realtor for any home purchases. He has turned me into a Trey Sells Homes Team fan and cheerleader. You might want make sure you consider his team for any property sales/purchases so you can experience the expertise that I was fortunate to experience.
Trey did an amazing job of helping my wife and I find our first home! After a brief consult, he went to work sending us listings to review. He gave us an easy to understand overview of the process, and walked us through every step. Viewings were coordinated quickly, and his knowledge of the different era of homes came in handy as he was able to spot possible concerns right away. We could not be happier with our experience and would recommend him to friends and family! Thanks Trey!
Trey helped my family buy a house moving all the way from California ! He was there always returning our calls and helping us along the way no matter the time of day! He had other clients at the tine but still always made us feel as if we were the top priority. I’m sure he does that will all his prospective homeowners. He went above and beyond especially with his knowledge of homes and since we bought a home through video calls alone he was such a great and reliable help. We trusted him with our future and dream home and he found it! Thank you Trey! Would recommend him to everyone!
2 sisters buying a house and could not have hoped for a better experience! Very knowledgeable, kind, and informative. Trey got us into our 1st home and made the whole process very smooth! Highly recommend, I'm recommending him to everyone o know interested buying a house. Didn't even know I could afford a house, it's the same cost as renting!
Trey is an amazing person to work with. As a first time home buyer, Trey took the time to make sure my wife and I understood the home buying process. He was always very professional and informative. With his knowledge and experience we were able to find the home we LOVED. Trey is someone I will be going back to when I purchase my second home. Thanks again Trey for everything! You rock!
After months of searching on our own we decided to call an agent a friend had recommended and lucky for us that agent was Trey. He helped us in a short time find the home of our dreams in a great neighborhood in Steilacoom. Trey did a great job negotiating the deal with multiple offers and if it was not for him I am not sure we would be living in our home. Thanks Trey I would definitely and have recommended your services to my family and friends or anyone needing a Real Estate Professional.
This is the second home I’ve sold using Trey and both times have been a wonderful experience. Trey goes above and beyond and is truly a great asset to have during this process. This time it took less than two weeks for him to get me a full price offer! I will definitely be reaching out to Trey for future real estate needs!
