Professional, friendly, active, superior service and advice–a five star recommendation from my wife and me. Incidentally, we used Kurt as our agent when we purchased our home many years ago so what with that experience Kurt was the clear choice when we decided to sell.
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.
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.
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.
When we first met with Kurt, he was fully prepared with documents about other homes in our area. He took us step by step and coached us on how to stage our house, etc.
When it came to buying our next home, he knew our taste, our needs, and really our overall expectations. He showed us just the right properties, and found our dream home that we’ll live in for years. I can’t say enough about Kurt and his team (especially Leslie and Scott!!!) who helped guide us through this somewhat stressful time in our lives.
The qualities that we were hoping for in a Realtor were those are integrity and knowledge of the local area. Kurt Piper fit the bill perfectly! He was always available to answer questions and didn’t hesitate to spend as much time as we needed for our search. He could point out pluses and minuses of various locations depending on your personal circumstances and desires. Kurt showed us countless properties without the least hint of pressure to act sooner than we were ready and comfortable. After finding the perfect property, he walked us seamlessly through the process to its completion. Anyone needing an agent in this area would be well served by contacting Kurt Piper!
