Mia and I have lived in the wonderful city of Chandler, Arizona since 1996. We have 2 fantastic children who make life worth living.
Our daughter has finally moved out on her own, and is working on a fantastic career in the airline industry. She has had the opportunity to travel to a number of different countries, as well as many states here in the U.S.
Our son is now a sophomore in high school. He is your typical boy who loves to be active. He has tried everything from Gymnastics, to BMX biking, to football, and basketball. He is currently playing Football, Soccer, and Baseball for his high school. We also have another family member, our boxer named Gracie. We got her on Easter day several years ago, and we love her to death.
Prior to moving to Arizona, I lived in many states throughout the country, as well as Okinawa. My father was in the military, and we lived in Florida, Idaho, and Kansas (to name a few places), before moving back to Oregon when I was in the fifth grade. I guess you could say I knew a lot about being the new kid in school. Mia had lived in Oregon her whole life. Her father was an educator, and her mother worked for the post office before they both retired. Mia, however, had traveled extensively, including trips to Japan and Costa Rica. We both come from households with great work ethic and excellent family values.
In our spare time, we love activities, whether it is riding quads or jet skiing in Lake Havasu, attending Broadway shows and sporting events, or visiting new places like Bisbee and Jerome, AZ. We enjoy spending time with our families, and try to get together as often as possible. I especially like to play softball, as I am too old to participate in just about any other sport (The knees are giving out on me). Mia loves to create things, as she designs her own jewelry, and can be very artistic when she has the time. She can also create a meal out of nothing in less than 10 minutes, and that's an art all in itself. Mia is also fluent in Spanish, which has come in very handy with our trips to Ensenada, Costa Rica, and Cabo San Lucas.
We are very civic minded individuals as well, and at one time or another have both worked for County and/or City Government. Mia has also been on the Board for the school PTO, as well as a volunteer for the Special Olympics, and Hands Across The Border. I have been a youth sports coach and official for so many years, I can't remember how many. We have also served on Youth Councils, the Little League Board, volunteered for the United Way, and the City of Chandler Youth Enhancement Program. We believe in giving back to our community, and that it really does take a village to raise great children.

Testimonials for Troy Erickson
Gregg Miller - Queen Creek, AZ03/04/2013
Troy is a very honest guy and helped me alot when it came to buying my Arizona home. His knowledge and expertise were instrumental in getting a great deal on my new home. I would recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling their home in Arizona.
Sandi Bell and Toni LaBarbera - Queen Creek, AZ07/18/2012
Troy and Mia were both great. They listened and responded to our wishes and interests. We very much wanted to find just the right place, and that's exactly what happened. We couldn't be happier.
Troy & Mia were wonderful, and we couldn't have done it without them. I would highly recommend these two agents to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Jennifer Tillet - Chandler, AZ06/22/2012
I have used Terra Solis Realty twice - once to buy a house and again to sell a house - and I was extremely pleased at their dilligent, tireless efforts to assist me. I was able to reach them anytime during the day, evenings, or weekends. Their friendly attitude, knowledge, professional manner, and excellent organizational skills helped create a very comfortable working relationship. Their insight as far as knowing what customers want is amazing. They really listened to what I was looking for in a house and helped me find exactly what I was looking for very quickly. I will not hesitate to call Terra Solis Realty when I am ready to buy again. It is their card that I give to friends when I hear they are interested in buying or selling, and those who have used Terra Solis Realty tell me they will definitely use their services again.
Erin and Travis Lambson - Chandler, AZ10/06/2011
Terra Solis Realty did an outstanding job. My husband and I both feel that if it wasn't for their flexibility and willingness to push the deal through, we would not be in the home we currently have grown to love. We will definitely use Terra Solis Realty for the purchase of our next home!
Matt and Stephanie Colby - Chandler, AZ07/24/2009
My husband and I have used Terra Solis Realty for many years. They have sold several of our homes and helped us purchase our last few homes including the one we are in now. They worked “for us” and “with us” to get us exactly what we wanted. They always had an answer to our questions. If they didn’t, they were on the phone within minutes and got the answers!
As an anxious buyer and seller we always wanted to know what was happening the minute it happened. We were and still are very pleased with all the outcomes of our home sales and purchases.
From the sellers stand point, Terra Solis Realty dedicated their time to getting us the maximum price for our home. They were there every step of the way. Nothing was missed. We got exactly what we wanted. On the buyer’s side, they helped us find that “perfect” home. They were always on the look out for new MLS listings. They would take the time to e-mail the listings and then show the properties at the drop of a hat.
Terra Solis Realty worked for us. They made the home buying and selling process seem so easy and effortless. All we had to do was move! Thank You for your professional attitude and drive to find us what we wanted.
Donna Spencer - Chandler, AZ04/06/2009
I've used Terra Solis Realty to buy 2 homes and sell 1 home. In all 3 situations, Terra Solis Realty went WAY BEYOND to get the job done. I know they didn't just do this for me - I've heard this from people I have referred to them as well. I have NO WORRIES when I know Terra Solis Realty is involved in the transaction!!!!!!!
Darcy Leffingwell and David Small - Chandler, AZ10/07/2008
My fiance and I were first time homebuyers, and were quite intimidated by the thought of buying a house, and everything that went into it. Terra Solis Realty made the experience very manageable for us. We told them what we were looking for, and how much we wanted to spend, and they did the rest. They worked with us endlessly until we found the perfect house for us. They wouldn't settle until it was what we wanted. There is no doubt we will use Terra Solis Realty when we buy our next house.
Happy Client - Chandler, AZ05/28/2007
To all home buyers and home sellers:
I highly recommend you use Terra Solis Realty. I've used them more than once buying and selling. They went above the call of duty. I was amazed! I even called them after 10:30 one night, and they answered! I definitely slept better after talking with them. Terra Solis Realty understands how emotional buying a house can be. They really made sure we were comfortable and understood the offer we were writing. We went up against another offer and because they knows so much- they gave us a negotiating strategy to use- and it worked! Terra Solis Realty called us the minute a new listing came on the market. We might not have gotten our home because it went so fast! If they weren't watching for it, we never would have seen it!
When selling a home, Terra Solis Realty is great too! We had to sell to be able to buy the next one, and they made it so smooth! They knew what to do for marketing, and told us why some things don't work. Terra Solis Realty is efficient, and didn't waste our time!
I urge you to use Terra Solis Realty - you'll be in good hands!
Mark and Elaine Foster - Mesa, AZ03/24/2007
Mia and Troy,
Just a note of thanks for all of your hard work and patience. I know that it wasn't easy to get us into a house, but your efforts have made us feel that you care about what's best for us and not your respective careers. If you continue to do your jobs this way - there is no doubt you will find great success.
