Best in Client Satisfaction - San Diego Magazine
"Courtney Koranda, what a phenomenal realtor! We had a property in the Carmel Valley, and a real need to remodel the property and sell it in a very short amount of time (< 3 mo). And to add to all this, we do not live in San Diego! We met with Courtney, and after our initial meeting, found a contractor, helped us with making supply and product selections, gave us a real sense of what pricing would be for this. After 6 weeks, the remodeling was completed, and our home was sold within less than 3 months and at a price 20% above our asking price. What a super job! We couldn’t be any more pleased and couldn’t make a higher recommendation towards Courtney as a true friend, business partner and realtor! " - Sandy and Shaun C.
"We had a great experience with Courtney. She was always very responsive and quick to set up showings when we asked - but she never pressured us and she was patient when we changed our minds about what we wanted. She also offered great and honest advice you wouldn't expect from a realtor. Courtney made buying a house easy - even the dreaded paperwork part. We will definitely use her in the future if we decide to move! " - Buyer in Cardiff by the Sea
"We just bought a new house with her assistance. And we are writing this review after our first, wonderful night in our new house. It was our first home buy and even though I read EVERYTHING (that internet can throw at me) about home buy guidelines, advices, and things to look for, I would be lost without her. She knew exactly what should I watch for and advised me on things that can only gained through many years of experience. I was able to avoid a possible nasty situation, thanks to her, and finally found this wonderful, yet affordable house in La Mesa, CA area. She was diligent, and frank when it came to personal opinion, yet maintained professionalism. Our house, that we were in interested in, turned out to have some minor water leak issue after house inspection. She worked extra miles to resolve the issue to my satisfaction. I praise her for her fast response and willingness to work extra. I had couple agents to choose from in the beginning. All were highly recommended from my relatives, close friends and coworkers. I chose Courtney to work with, even though she was least known agent to me at that time, but it turned out to be excellent choice, thanks to my coworker who introduced me to her. She clearly stands out among other agents. It looks like we will be her loyal customer, but too bad we just can't afford to buy and sell houses every other month! " - Buyer in La Mesa, CA.
" Had a wonderful experience with Courtney recently. She sold our home in Solana Beach and sold us our new house in Leucadia. I was very impressed with her level of knowledge coupled with outstanding professionalism. She worked tirelessly to work out all details and stayed involved after all deals were closed to tie up the smallest of loose ends. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a qualified agent. I have already referred her out to multiple people. " - Seller in Solana Beach, CA
