For 25 years, I have enjoyed serving my friends, family and clients with buying and selling homes in the East Bay area (Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Walnut Creek, Danville, Alamo, Pleasant Hill, Martinez and Oakland communities).
Easy going, I can also be serious and competitive, but I am always a highly seasoned and trusted professional looking out for your best interest. I focus mostly on single family homes. I am also experienced in investment properties, apartments, multi-family dwellings, duplex, triplex, townhouses, condos, detached or attached.
Growing up in Orinda for 22 years in the 70’s and 80’s, I graduated from CAL Berkeley and started my family and real estate career in Lafayette, in 1995 and now live in Moraga at the Moraga Country Club.
I don't look at my clients as "cookie cutter" transactions. My role is both as a professional and friend - acting as a confidant with a genuine approach to building relationships with everyone who crosses my path. This comes natural for me, and I attribute this as a gift from raising a special needs child, which has refined me with maturity, patience and empathy for others.
To maximize a home's value, I advise clients in areas such as remodeling, landscape, staging and interior design, architecture and creativity, current real estate trends, home style, construction methods, defects & practices, legal interpretation, property valuation, appraisals, real estate taxes, marketing, advertising, etc.
I share with clients my trusted circle of contractors, handymen, electricians, plumbers, painters, surveyors, architects, CPAs, financial planners, attorneys in family law, probate, estate planning, wills & trusts, property managers, home owner associations, real estate lawyers and other professionals.
I have long standing relationships with local Realtors, resulting in favorable outcomes for my buyers in multiple offers and fair negotiations on behalf of my sellers. Many of these agents have been "across the table" with me on multiple transactions and they know what they get with Kurt Piper - excellent communication, fair dealings and personal respect.
