Kurt got me 60,000 over list price on the sale of my home. By far the most professional and skilled realtor in Nevada county. He has an amazing support group. Particularly Jason who is also a local expert who helps with the process once it goes to title.

Kurt was recommended to us through a mutual friend. Our first home we listed with him was sold with-in 24 hours. To say the least we were really impressed. Kurt is very knowledgeable about current market trends and is happy to share his information with you. He and his team are very professional, prompt and fun to work with, they walk you though every step of the buying or selling process. We purchased and sold 3 different properties with Kurt over the years and would highly recommend him for any real-estate transactions.

Kurt was our real estate agent 13 years ago when we relocated to Nevada County. He is professional and has a extensive knowledge of the area and found us a home in the area we were interested in. In 2010 we were considering selling our home, Kurt put together an extensive market analysis and explained our options. Although we did not go forward with selling and buying a home, he remains in touch with us, when the time is right, we look forward to working with Kurt and his team.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Grass Valley, CA.
Kurt and his team helped my sisters and me sell our parents home in Alta Sierra. The house was an interesting challenge as it needed some updating and repair but had a spectacular view and great privacy. Kurt listens carefully and thoughtfully to input and knows how to incorporate client concerns into the overall strategy. The end result was a hassle free sale in less than a week at above asking price. Small issues that arose through escrow, as they always do, were handled quickly and professionally to the satisfaction of all parties. We would hire Kurt again in a heartbeat and give him our highest recommendation!

Kurt Congdon and his staff were very professional when it came to listing and selling my mothers home in Grassvalley. The house was in excellent structural condition and had been professionally painted, inside and out, but much of the decor was dated; shag carpets, old style lighting fixtures, window coverings. The home was over 2100 square feet, but only two bedroom. Kurt and I set a price we thought was fair, but was at the top of the range. We lowered it once and sold. It was a pleasure to work with Kurt and his team. They updated me whenever the home was viewed with reviews from the prospective buyers and their agents, and were very responsive to any concerns I had. I would definitely recommend Kurt to anyone interested in listing, selling, or buying a home in the Grassvalley area.
Our home in Alta Sierra, near Grass Valley was up for sale for over a year with another Realtor, who brought in maybe 5-10 people to look at the house during the entire year. This was during the downturn and it was hard to sell a home. When the contract was up with the first Realtor, we contacted Kurt. He showed us how to be "ahead" of the market and still get a great price for our home when other homes were not selling. True to his word our home was sold within 2 months in a very difficult market. He was there with us 100% of the time and represented us in the negotiations always keeping in mind that we were his clients. Kurt is an Excellent, Excellent Realtor. If you are selling your home in the Nevada Country area it's well worth talking to Kurt.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $400K in Nevada City, CA.
I think what impressed me most about Kurt Congdon was not just his level of expertise and real estate knowledge but, rather, his positive nature and optimism during a very difficult real estate environment.
Kurt was our agent when we sold our Nevada City home in October of 2010. Inventories were huge, values were horrible, and buyers were scarce.
Despite these major obstacles, Kurt was able to sell our home in less than 4 months.
Kurt has a great team and the transaction was seamless. He was strategic about pricing, had a strong marketing team that got a lot of traffic through the home, and had the software functionality to allow us to sign all documents from a remote site (which was a huge time-saver).
In short, he was simply a perfect agent for us. He was confident from the beginning, was calm, professional, and organized. Without question, he was the reason we were able to sell our house in 2010.
I would strongly encourage a meeting with Kurt Congdon for anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.
Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $1.225M in Grass Valley, CA.
Our experience with Kurt was great!!! We interviewed 3 agents before we listed with Kurt. His proposal was professional and very knowledgeable about the market, the area and targeted buyers. We sold our property to a "mortgage broker" from out of the area. We had a scheduled close date but unknown to us our buyer was working 2 loans to get the best interest rate. What that meant to us is the close/move out date for us kept changing. Kurt was able to unravel the continued delays caused by the buyer and finally we closed. It was only Kurt's tenacity, knowledge and professionalism that made it all come together... This was a difficult situation for all of us but Kurt kept the stress level down - thank goodness. Kurt is the kind of Real Estate Agent that you want on your side. Is Kurt Congdon a good real estate agent??? Yes - he is the BEST!!! Will we use Kurt in the future? Most Definitely.
