I’ve really enjoyed working with Barb and collaborating on the upgrade of our home in preparation for sale. After she worked her magic by selecting rich paint colors and filling our house with her objects d’art, our home looked amazing. We received multiple offers and sold over the list price.
Kurt Piper is an exceptional realtor. Kurt played a vital role in landing the perfect house for our family. He is extremely well connected throughout the east bay and his ability to negotiate our winning offer made all the difference.
We met Kurt when he was selling agent on what is now our current home. At the time our purchase was contingent on the sale of our home and there was a small window to make everything happen, nothing was guaranteed. His professionalism, local knowledge and level of care led us to work with him to put our house on the market, sell our old house and buy our current one. He and his team were able to stage our home and get it open in less than a week and it was sold only two weeks later, over the asking price, and just in time for us to close on the home of our dreams. Kurt was able to recommend local inspectors, handymen and yard services to quickly work through the listing and closing processes. I have never seen home purchase go so smoothly, especially one as complicated and time effected as this one. Kurt set clear expectations at the start and he surpassed them in every way. I look forward to working with him again.
We were very fortunate to have Barb assist us in our recent move from a home we had been in for nearly 30 years in Walnut Creek, to our new home in Moraga. Her expertise in design is exceptional, and she has a great knowledge of the market and what current buyers are looking for. Her eye for staging is spot on and her hands-on help in updating our “new” home, including vendor connections and willingness to guide us, made for an incredibly positive experience. We would hire her again without hesitation.
My husband and I found Kurt from Zillow and had a great experience working with him. We were new to the area and needed his local expertise. Finding a home took a little longer than we thought it would (5 months) as the market has been very competitive in our price range. Kurt was always very patient, optimistic and supportive. He found time to come with us to open houses. He knew this was a house we wanted to be in long term and never put pressure on us to make any decisions too soon or spend more than we were comfortable with. As we were getting tired of looking, we started considering homes with lesser bedrooms and even considered homes outside of our target area but he reminded us that we should be in a house that we are excited about. He is confident in this housing market and encouraged us to not settle or lose hope. Kurt was super helpful guiding us along the purchasing process and representing our interests. Hopefully we are in this house for a while and I would work with him again and recommend him to others.
As a seller, we were very concerned about presenting our home in an attractive, professional way to get maximum return, the Piper group went beyond our expectations, and as a result, we got multiple offers, and sold our home for more than the asking price, as a direct result of professional advice and marketing from the Piper group. I will always recommend them to my friends.
