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 knowledgable, consistently thought outside the box, and were very pleasant and responsive throughout the process.
It took us 7 months and 80 walk throughs to find our home. Kurt Piper patiently guided us all those months; we saw him so often that at times it felt like we were his only clients. Kurt is a hustler and goes about his work with a sense of urgency. He often had the inside track into homes not yet on the market and worked hard to get us in before they hit the MLS. Kurt is accessible; he replies to texts at all hours, returns phone calls promptly and we never heard the word “no”. We recommend Kurt without hesitation. He is reliable and when he says he’s going to do something, he does it. He listens more than he speaks. Kurt gave us a leg up, and we had fun working with him.
Kurt and 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.
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.
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!
