Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Alhambra, CA.
I contacted Mr. Curtis to handle the sale of my father in law's house, which he immediately took on (something I would expect every broker to do). What impressed me most was the fact that when the negotiations and sale became difficult, Mr. Curtis did not shy away, but became more involved in the process. Mr. Curtis' expertise and involvement took, what could have been a very contentious sale, and completed an effective closing of the sale. I would use Mr. Curtis' services again and again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Sierra Madre, CA.
Jeff Curtis was diligent in working with us throughout the process of purchasing our home. He understood our needs and desires and was able to match potential homes to those requirements. In the end he helped us to successfully negotiate a home in Sierra Marde, CA that will meet all of our needs. We appreciated that he represented us well with both the buyer and the selling agent and also coordinated the relationship with our lender. He led us through each step to close the deal.
Jeff is a true real estate professional! Very knowledgeable about all kinds of real estate transactions (probate, bankruptcy, etc.), has in-depth knowledge about the area and school systems, courteous, and patient. He is not pushy and does not impart his unsolicited advice. Works through various forms of communication so that you are always in touch (mobile phone, texts, emails, etc.) He is a pleasure to work with and you know you are in good hands with him as your broker.
Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $375K in West Central, Pasadena, CA.
Jeff is truly one of the best realtors that I’ve ever worked with. During the housing crisis my wife and I were looking for an affordable condo in Pasadena as our first home. Although there seemed to be many condos with attractive prices available (mostly short sales), we were always too late for the best listings. We worked with several agents and none of them seem to know how to help us. After nearly 8 months of seeing deal after deal being picked up by someone else, we thought it was hopeless.
Fortunately, we got connect with Jeff and he assured us that with the right strategy our first home was indeed within reach. I was immediately impressed by his deep insight into the real estate market and the short sale process during our first meeting as he helped us set realistic expectations. He patiently talked to us about our needs and wants and carefully guided us in clarifying our must-haves, which helped us narrow down our search considerably. Jeff’s ability to figure out what’s truly important to us, coupled with his deep network of real estate professionals and listings, allowed us to find a short sale in great condition less than a month after our first meeting. Jeff helped us submit a competitive offer and guided us through the confusing short sale process. Amazingly we got the keys to our first home less than 4 months after we started working with him!
Looking back Jeff was always prepared for any complication that could arise and did not shy away from tough negotiations with other parties. He took great care in making sure we know exactly what’s going on, which made the whole home-buying experience a very pleasant one.
If you are looking for an agent who is friendly, knowledgeable, highly professional and with lots of experience to help you buy or sell real estate, stop looking and give Jeff a call today!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $950K in East Central, Pasadena, CA.
Jeff did an excellent job for us. We were selling two houses, buying one, and moving in with the In-Laws, so you could imagine the logistics involved, and the stress. Jeff was very thorough in identifying all of our needs, both individually and as a family. He took the time that is needed to understand us. Jeff was able to translate our needs into potential homes and as a result we did not have to look at every property in the area. In the end we found a great property that addressed the needs of the wife, the In-Laws, the kids, and myself.
In addition to the purchasing, Jeff helped us sell our two homes. He was very good at staging the houses, as well as setting up the marketing. (My brother didn't even recognize my home when he saw it on-line.) Both houses sold quickly, without issue, and we were very happy with the process.
Jeff's knowledge of the Real Estate laws in Pasadena and Arcadia really helped us prepare for any findings that may arise from the Inspections, and he was a great help in remedying any of the improvements we needed to make. This was a process about which I had no knowledge (I thought my house was fine as-is), but Jeff did an excellent job in describing the steps and explaining potential issues. When the City came in for their inspection, there were few surprises and where needed, we already had plans for making fixes.
This entire deal transpired over a 6 month period and I found Jeff to be very available, flexible, communicative, knowledgeable, and friendly throughout. I am more than happy to write this review.
Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Arcadia, CA.
Jeff helped us sell our condo lightning quick and for a great price. I would strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of selling their property. His staff is top notch and really knows how to stage, photograph, and present your property in the best possible light. The condo literally sold in 5 days, and closed 40 days after my wife and I even had an inkling to sell. He is extremely patient and honest and held our hands through what can be a stressful, complex, and sometimes confusing process.
I just closed on my property today. I can say without reservation that Jeff is the MOST professional, knowledgable, skilled, and easy to work with realtor I have ever come across. His approach is professional, and he will do exactly what he promises to do. He is also easy to reach, and responds very quickly to questions. His knowledge of the real estate market, including his familiarity with building codes (even city ordinances involving trees!) was extremely impressive. Also, he has years of experience with other agents, as well as lenders, in the area. He represented me in a purchase where there were several bidders, and without his skill and perseverance I would not have gotten this house. I give him the highest possible recommendation.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $725K in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.
Jeff helped me obtain my newly purchased home in LA last year. I have worked with many real estate agents in the past for the last 22 years. Most agents worked out for one transaction, but I didn't always go back to them. The reason is that finding an agent who always speaks truthful to their clients and put clients' interest first before their own is a challenge that most home owners/buyers face. Jeff is one of the agents who I can completely trust, both personally and professionally. I enjoyed working with Jeff on my house hunt. He has helped me to stay focus and calm, so that I won't make the choice that I would regret. I definitely trust his knowledge and professional opinions, and his recommendation. Jeff has the "can do" attitude and is willing to work with you on anything beyond just the purchase. The after-sale services were also excellent. Jeff is definitely on my list for someone I will work with again! I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who wants experience, knowledge, honesty, and services from an agent who actually works for their clients!
