Kurt sold our family home of 15 years, located in Palos Verdes Estates and worked with us to purchase our new home in Rolling Hills Estates. Due to Kurt’s accurate pricing recommendation, our home sold immediately and with 3 offers. All offers were over list so that was extremely welcome news. Kurt also held open houses to help advertise and showcase our home. Kurt was also instrumental in helping us assess what we needed to do to our home before we listed it to make it more desirable to buyers. All transactions went smoothly and that made the whole process very easy to manage. Kurt was very knowledgeable about activity in our area as well as many others. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell."
We have had the pleasure of working with Kurt for over 10 years, and have known him for over 15 years. Kurt has help us with several successful transactions, including a home sale, a home buy, and assisting with finding renters for two of our properties. Throughout each process, Kurt's professionalism and attention to detail has resulted in a smooth and successful outcome.
Kurt's experience is invaluable--he understands the nuances of the market, and knows what needs to get done to satisfy both parties. Of course, when the situation is not right for the client, he will not hesitate to voice his view. We have had several instances of this, and have been grateful for his advice.
We look forward to working with Kurt in the future."
I have been buying and selling Manhattan Beach real estate with Kurt Allen since 1994. My entire family as interacted with Kurt on real estate transactions. Kurt has a great personality and gives you the straight scoop on any property you investigate. He has been involved in the Manhattan Beach real estate market all his life, as he grew up here. He can sell Manhattan Beach qualities better than anybody in town. So if you are a seller, he is your guy.
Kurt keeps up with the market trends on financing and construction costs. He has been a real estate developer himself, so he knows a lot about current replacement costs as well as purchase prices. He knows what features help sell a home and what improvements need to be made to make a quick sale. He know nearly all of the real estate agents who represent sellers. If you are a buyer, these agents are truthful with Kurt as to what is possible on a deal so that you do not overpay.
Through his hard work and dedication to service, Kurt has earned the loyalty of my entire family. I highly recommend Kurt to buyers, sellers and investors alike."
For more than a decade our family has worked with Kurt Allen for our real estate needs, including two home sales and two purchases in the Palos Verdes area.
Kurt’s integrity, tenacity, understanding of the marketplace, as well as his genuine care for his clients’ best interest are second to none. While buying and selling real estate can be a complicated and nerve wracking experience, Kurt always keeps a cool head. He goes the extra mile to explain every step of the process and he never takes short cuts. While there were times he could have put his self-interest ahead of ours, and had the opportunity to make more money, he didn’t.
Our family feels fortunate to have found Kurt, and would highly recommend him to both buyers and sellers."
Kurt is amazing! He helped us purchase two homes and sell one in the South Bay. With Kurt as our agent, each transaction went smoothly and we were very happy with the results. His knowledge, guidance, responsiveness and personality are unmatched in this market and we have no hesitation recommending him to our friends."
