Debra Noble recommends Jacob Kurtz

As a newcomer to investment properties, we had many questions and much apprehension. Jake has been so helpful to us, sharing his knowledge and experience from his many years as a realtor/investor. He taught us what to look for in the properties we viewed, to calculate the necessary repairs and to estimate the costs involved. After much searching, we finally purchased our first investment property with confidence. I would highly recommend Jacob Kurtz to anyone interested in buying/selling. Jake is not only an excellent realtor, but we consider him a mentor and a friend.

Jake was very thorough through all aspects for the sale of my home. I am very grateful it happened so fast. Now I do not have to worry about draining my RAINY-DAY-FUND. He found a group to help me pack and dispose of things I no longer needed in my new home. He even called with a follow-up call to be sure every thing was going OK. View More Info at

Jake is a true professional and has the knowledge and expertise to get the job done.
Jake sold my house in a short period of time while all along keeping me posted and helping me to deal with so many hoops to go through, i.e., inspections, an open house, and loads and loads of paperwork to understand and deal with.
It was a pleasure having him as my agent. View More Info at

I cannot say enough positive things regarding the service I was provided by my realtor Carl Graffenstatte. The first thought that comes to mind is professionalism. From the very first phone call until the final transaction he has been a true professional. He was also very intuitive to my likes and dislikes. I particularly appreciate that he was easy to contact, got a very quick response, and was very helpful with any concern that I would have. I would highly recommend Carl to anyone looking for a realtor and would definitely use his expertise in the future. View More Info at

We were house hunting on our own with a mobile app and came across Carl's Open House signage a few blocks from our residence and ended up meeting him by happenstance. We appreciated his candor and decided to have him show us more than several other properties in the area that met our criteria.

Carl was there for us at every step of the process. He was prompt and courteous. He made our schedule work and that ultimately had us come full circle back to the property where we originally met him. That is now our new home. He made it a seamless transition and will be invited to our "House Warming" party. He did a great job!

Marlene Burkitt recommends Jacob Kurtz

Former owner of Family Video

I've known Jake for about 30 years. Always professional, whether selling new cars (he quit that to sell real estate full time). Jake has been very patient with me, sending me listings for the past 5 years, probably about 5,000 listings or more! Finally, I settled on a cute 37 year old home in Citrus Heights in pristine condition. Jake personally inspected that house top to bottom, except the attic space and declared it perfect except for one very small area near the rainwater downspout, a common issue for homes this age. The negotiations and closing went smoothly and quickly, in only 2 1/2 weeks! He was very thorough in every detail, going over and over documents and reports to make sure I understood everything and every detail. I am so impressed, I have already found him 2 more clients. Last week he sent me a movers package online, which streamlines the moving process, in particular, notifying banks, utilities, doctors, schools, alma maters, relatives, friends etc etc of my change of address.. the post office charges a fee now to put in a change of address. Doing this through this online tool .... it's free! I have also asked Jake to continue to send me listings as I am looking for a home to rent out. He will bend over backwards to make you happy and satisfied. I certainly highly recommend his services as he is a highly regarded and respected professional, being in RE for 35 years or so. I look forward to commencing more business dealings with Jake Kurtz. View More Info at

Mark is great, my husband and I met Mark a couple years after the mark crashed. We wanted to invest our IRA into realestate. We didn't have much money, but Mark went the extra mile with us and we found a house. We still have it and it has been a good investment.

Some years later we decided to buy another one with very little money. We kept getting out bid. I was going to give up but Mark found us another one. I like that Mark is there until he finds what you are looking for. Mark has also gained knowledge, buying through an IRA account. View More Info at

Kevin Baldwin recommends Jacob Kurtz

University professor

I conducted three real estate agent interviews before selecting Jake to list my home in Carmichael. Apart from being very personable and attentive to my questions, his market analysis for my home was spot on. He gave me a realistic number that I could work with and suggested that the home would sell within a month. After five days on the market, we had five offers to consider. Jake came back to my home and spent two hours going over the positives/negatives of each offer helping me to make an informed thoughtful decision. Jake made thoughtful recommendations for contractors to clear a short list identified in the home inspection. The best offer was for precisely the $$$ Jake had determined from his initial market analysis. The home closed within a month without any hitches. If you want a straightforward process with the insights of a professional, Jake is your man. I highly recommend using Jake to list your Sacramento area home. View More Info at
