Kurt Piper provided invaluable insight and assistance in all aspects of our cross-country move and home purchase. Kurt helped us gain a deep understanding of the local area and schools which gave us confidence to make a substantial investment in a home. He listened closely to our desires and helped us find multiple homes that suited our needs. After picking the home we wanted, Kurt successfully spearheaded the complex negotiation and inspection process with the sellers. And after we moved in, Kurt put us in touch with multiple individuals from arborists to insurance providers to fellow parents at our kids’ schools so that we could quickly get settled and move on with our lives. In short, Kurt is an outstanding real estate professional. c.
Thirteen years ago when my husband and I relocated to the Lamorinda area from San Diego we had the fortune of getting a realtor referral from friends (who had grown up in Orinda). They recommended that we work with Kurt Piper. Kurt helped us find a rental and eventually sold us our home in Lafayette “Burton Valley” at 14 Burnt Oak Circle. Ten years later after a major remodel we made the decision to sell our home. We had many other options of realtors that we could of chosen to list our home with but, Kurt was our obvious choice for a number of reasons. First off in our opinion he knows the area better than anyone because he grew up here, which to us as “out of towners” is a welcome perk. For me as a stay at home mom of three daughters his calm demeanor and ability to alway’s be available for my questions and immediately return my calls and texts was greatly appreciated. When my husband and I began discussing listing our house with Kurt it was his research and expertise that led us to quickly list and sell our home for full price. It was quite an impressive task that his team and he pulled off staging, marketing and listing our home within 5 day’s but, they did it seamlessly. One instance in particular Leslie Piper was at the house for an inspection and as she was waiting she actually helped me pack boxes……what a God Send that was. Lastly when it came to the business negotiation part of the process my husband who is an attorney/broker greatly appreciated Kurts professionalism and advocacy. Without going into details Kurt made a significant personal sacrifice in order to close the deal and for that we will be eternally grateful. As you can tell we are huge fans of Kurt and Leslie’s and the Piper groups and we will definitely use them in purchasing our next house.
Kurt produced results and is a pleasure to work with! He is knowledgeable, hardworking, well-connected, and patient. An experienced real estate friend and I interviewed several realtors in the area before deciding on Kurt. He was the listing agent for the sale of 2 Lafayette houses in 2018 owned by a trust for which I am responsible. These properties were unique even for Lafayette. We benefited from his expertise throughout all phases from preparation to completion of sales. The trust was pleased with his work including complex negotiations. The trust has another house to bring to market and its decision makers decided on Kurt for the third house based on his handling and outcomes of the prior two.
We met Kurt at an open house we went to and we’re very impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and approachability. We then hired him to help us look for a home in Lamorinda. Our first meeting with him was a tour around the neighborhoods and offering up insider knowledge. His love for his community was contagious, it got us fired up. We made 3 offers over the course of a month and he was there with us every step of the way. The third time was the charm and we purchased a wonderful family home that our kids will be so lucky to grow up in. I highly recommend Kurt Piper and his team to help you find your home.
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.
Firstly, we believe it makes sense to choose a ‘Realtor Team’ not a ‘One Man Band’. We found all members of the KP Team to be well briefed and knowledgeable of our needs. Our sale, like most had complexities which required the plan to be reviewed and changed. We found that Kurt and his team showed an impressive agility to handle this. They set our expectations at the correct level and always did what they promised. Gold dust.
They piloted us through the sale keeping us fully informed. We have no hesitation in recommending the KP Team.
