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.
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!
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.
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.
My husband and I found Kurt from Zillow and had a great experience working with him. We were new to the area and needed his local expertise. Finding a home took a little longer than we thought it would (5 months) as the market has been very competitive in our price range. Kurt was always very patient, optimistic and supportive. He found time to come with us to open houses. He knew this was a house we wanted to be in long term and never put pressure on us to make any decisions too soon or spend more than we were comfortable with. As we were getting tired of looking, we started considering homes with lesser bedrooms and even considered homes outside of our target area but he reminded us that we should be in a house that we are excited about. He is confident in this housing market and encouraged us to not settle or lose hope. Kurt was super helpful guiding us along the purchasing process and representing our interests. Hopefully we are in this house for a while and I would work with him again and recommend him to others.
