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.
