My wife and I worked with Kurt for about 18 months to find a home in Lafayette. When we were finally ready to move, he knew exactly what we wanted and found the perfect home for us. His knowledge of the La Morinda area and its real estate market is top notch. I give Kurt and his team my highest recommendation.
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.
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.
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!
As a seller, we were very concerned about presenting our home in a 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.
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!
