We decided to downsize at the last minute and missed out on selling our house during the prime period when families typically do. Kurt was amazing in prepping and listing our house and I can only say we were still able to sell our house in late Oct/Nov in 2018 right when the housing market slowed down. He proactively kept us updated to make sure we knew where things stood knowing there’s a lot of anxiety in selling a house than most people realize. He was also very helpful in providing creative solutions during difficult circumstances and more importantly kept in touch with interested parties. I know there are lot of agent choices out there but few like Kurt that take into account your personal considerations. During hot property markets you can’t really tell how good an agent is but during difficult markets that’s when they reveal themselves. I wouldn’t have done it any differently with Kurt. He’s the best!
Kurt, Leslie, and their team did a great job in helping sell our home in Lafayette. Their contacts and reputation in the community were invaluable in helping us recover from a poor representation by another company.
Kurt calmly and steadfastly, steered us through our transaction that ended well for all concerned. He was a conduit connecting all the parts: he quickly lined up the various house inspections, stayed closely in touch with the lending brokers, the title company and us. As we were moving to a much smaller house he gave us suggestions for storage and recommended a reliable moving company. During a time that has to be stressful for all, and certainly for us this was true, he was a steadying force and generated a wealth on confidence. Kurt is the reliable, ethical, hard working, and connected realtor that everyone should be fortunate enough to work with whether it involves selling a home or buying a home.
It all started when I decided to move to a retirement community in Marin. Part of my motivation to move was not wanting to deal with several major repair issues in my backyard. I engaged the Kurt Piper Group, and we agreed the house would be fixed up, staged, and put on the market after I moved. But word leaked out that I was moving, so there were various inquiries and requests to see the house. Kurt sensed the time was right to change plans. So he set up two “off market” open houses. The turnout was excellent, and it resulted in multiple offers. I accepted the one that met all my hoped for criteria. The house was sold “as is” before I moved, and I was allowed to stay rent free until my move date. Fantastic!! Kurt and his team were extremely knowledgeable, consistently thought outside the box, and were very pleasant and responsive throughout the process.
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.
We sold our house with Kurt in 2018. The house needed some work to be ready for sale and Kurt and his associates took care of recommending and scheduling resources to complete the work. The house was staged beautifully and sold immediately. I would highly recommend Kurt Piper for your real estate needs!
