We sensed that you understood our angst at selling our beloved home and took the time to deal with our apprehensions. You presented options without pressure along with the pros and cons of the possible choices available to us. We felt your advice was knowledgeable and given with our best outcome in mind.
We had very little inconvenience in the process of selling as you were organized and kept in close touch to facilitate any showings.
We appreciated that you did not pressure us to sign a listing on the first visit when you knew we did not have a place in mind to go to. You suggested we look first which indicates that you were concerned for us, and not just acquiring our home to sell.
~ Wayne & Judith LEE
The experience was great, Curt worked with me for almost a year and was patient, exploring and explaining the different options that we had, between keeping our existing home as a rental or selling and using the equity to buy a new home. I really liked how easy it was to call him up or text him and he would respond immediately with an answer if he had it or find an answer as soon as he could.
What really exceeded my expectations was that you were genuine (not that I didn’t expect it but it was great having a level of trust where I knew that what you were saying was correct and not just lip service/in my best interest.) I also liked how he had knowledge in other aspects of the real estate process. (rentals, mortgage info etc)
I liked the dedication that you provided. You were very good with communicating even though you have a busy work/home life. I will (and have) recommended you to family/friends and neighbours.
~ Jesse Logan
Everything went well ,very informative. Very personal, I could call you anytime or you whatever answer for me or you would come to our house and explain it to us.
~ Brenda Canning
Everything was fantastic!
Curt was highly communicative through the entire process. Not only that, he arranged for the painters and cleaners within an hour of looking at the property to assess what needed to be done. He looked at the place on a Friday, it was painted and cleaned by Monday, on the market by Wednesday and sold by Thursday night.
Curt provided good insight on what the market is currently doing and gave advice on how much we should list for and how much we should expect to sell for. He was clear and helpful. He also stayed in communication as offers came in and gave advice on what we should and shouldn’t do as we had multiples. His expertise helped guide us through the process with very little stress or concern.
Curt provided us with an online dashboard where we could track all showing requests, showings and feedback. It made it easy to know what was going on with our vacant property at all times.
~ Rebecca Troelstra
You were always very considerate of our needs and making sure we were looking after ourselves, especially with Ernie having medical issues going on during the time of our showings and the sale of our unit. You exceeded our expectations as a Realtor. I always felt you kept our best interests at heart and it never really felt like a business transaction. I am so glad I saw that ad in the paper over two years ago and we got to meet you.
~ Ernie and Eleanor Instant
Everything went well, it needed to because it had been a long time (many years) since I had ventured into the real estate market. You answered all my questions no matter how insignificant they may have seemed at the time.
~ Trevor Brooker
Your management of our particular dynamics was excellent. You provided enthusiasm and creativity to the process. You love your work and it shows! Quick to respond, courteous and professional in all matters.
You did an amazing job. You were a wealth and source of information. A constant reassurance that you were there if I had any concerns. Prompt, Informative, Friendly, Helpful. Over all experience was great. You did your job and you did it well.
~ Laura Fast
Good, friendly service. Knowledgeable. Not high pressure. Caring and sincere. He didn’t give up until we found a house that totally suited us. We purchased a house we liked and were able to sell our previous home in a reasonable period of time. Curt did not push us and was respectful of our input. The input that he provided was well thought out and beneficial. It was a good experience. Curt listened to what we wanted and offered professional advice.
~ Dan Bue
Curt continued to show us homes until we saw one that met our approval. Friendly & courteous. I think he did everything well.
~ Liz Bue
Curt was thoughtful, attentive and committed to helping us meet our objectives. Communicative, expert and sensitive to our needs.
~ Greg Sharpe
Very informative, not pushy. I didn’t expect to have the house staged which it was and you were very knowledgeable of how the market was trending.
Excellent. Everything from the work-up of information prior to listing, the listing, the ability of seeing online all of the updates, to the sale in three days, we always felt that you were working in our best interest. It was not only your professional mannerism but also your integrity and ethics that was superior. We knew from the experience of a neighbour of ours that listed and sold through you last year that you were who we wanted to work with on the sale of our home. You arranged an amazing stager and photographer and the fact that we could see everything online on our dashboard and your personal updates impressed us and you always answered my questions quickly and I never felt that I was asking too many. Honestly, we can’t think of a thing you could have done better. As far as realtors go, we think you and your team are the complete package. To answer your next question, would we recommend you to family or friends, that goes without saying. Absolutely.
~ Randy Morphy and Trish Edwards
Very positive. Strong communication. Prompt. Open, honest, eager. Friendly. Sales driven … without being obnoxious! Provides good services.
Curt has wonderful care and support for us. He studied closely our need and the situation to consult great options to fit us. He helped us to have better understanding on the market and helped us to hit the best price for our property. Extremely fast and effective action plan. He’s simply the best.
The experience was very good. Curt is well informed on the market and the current trends within the market. I felt that Curt was very patient and at no point did I feel pressured into doing something I didn’t want to do. I felt I could trust Curt and that he would tell me the truth, and was there for me and not his own benefit. Once Curt knew what I was looking for he stepped to the plate and brought good possible properties to the table. It was honest , fair, and absolutely no pressure. At no point in time did he ever make me feel like I was being unreasonable. Never felt like I was wasting his time . A great experience for sure.
~ Stan Siemens
This note is sent to you in appreciation for the successful sale of our home. Curt Derksen presented himself in a professional calm manner, most knowledgeable and considerate of our needs. Thank you for your hard work, dedication and guidance through the negotiations. Sincerely we wish you all the success in the future. We are extremely happy and highly recommend Curt Derksen to anyone.
~ CP Nguyen
Very professional and straight to the point. Everything was done in a timely manner and personal input was added to help make my decisions easier. Will be recommending to many others.
Overall our experience was fantastic. After our first meeting, you were able to navigate us through this tumultuous market to our needs. The service you provided consisted of: openness, responsiveness, dedication, positive attitude and anticipation of our needs. These met all of our high expectations. We would definitely recommend you to our family and friends.
~ Dave & Pamela Dhat
Excellent, very knowledgeable about the market, answered question and if did not know the answer, did not fake it but said he would find out and let me know. Very professional and also a nice guy. Very professional, hands on, gave me a feeling of one on one and made me feel comfortable when discussing matters concerning money and issues / questions with other agents. I ended up purchasing an investment property to my liking and am very satisfied with the outcome.
~ Trevor Brooker
Excellent! I liked that you kept in touch with me during the time I was in the process of selling my other property, reminding me you were ready whenever I was to take action, and sending me your newsletter and some potential listings. You helped me understand the market fundamentals so that I would not waste time with unsuccessful offers. I liked that you think like an investor, and understand cashflow and return on investment. Your contacts for a property manager were very helpful, as was your understanding of insurance requirements. Finally, I appreciate you seeing it through to a successful purchase! You met my expectations with being a professional, writing the offers and navigating the open houses and purchase. You exceeded my expectations when you listened to what I was looking for and helped me understand the market and focus on the criteria for a successfully purchase. You did this by helping me weed out inappropriate properties, providing comparables, return on investment calculations, videos of potential properties with your personal commentary, and also your devoted time to my purchase process. Negotiating for me possibly keeping the downstairs tenant on terms that would be acceptable to me and the tenant exceeded my expectations. Thank you for thinking about my post-sale experience as well as that of the current property residents!
~ Mira Bajic
Wonderful! Great communication, tons of showings and got me the price I needed. Did great at countering offers on my behalf to get me what I needed to get. Friendly fast and efficient.
~ Jennifer Biggs
It was a fantastic, very happy experience working with Curt. He was highly recommended by our friend who also had a very good experience with Curt. Curt gave good suggestion and knew exactly what needed to be done in order to sell our house and he was right. He always kept us updated. We could feel that Curt was genuinely thinking for the interest of his clients. We were so impressed that Curt was able to and did such a good job to arrange workers to fix our property in such a short period of time. As a result of Curt’s dedicated and hard work, we had multiple offers. The selling price was way over our asking price. Thank you, Curt. Whether we will buy or sell our house in the future, Curt, we shall be calling you. We like that you used many different media, not just MLS to promote our property. Your website also gives good information and is so convenient for us to check the status of our property. We are very pleased with the whole experience. Keep up with the good work.
~ Katherine Choi
I feel Curt is extremely professional in his field, very knowledgable and made the whole process run along very smoothly. I would’ve expected most to show some level of frustration as our situation got quite complicated at times (Curt kept a very level head at all times). Very swift and efficient!
It was a very pleasant experience to have Curt work with me. He was hard working. He knew what was needed to be done to promote the sale of my house to the best potential. You are very friendly, easy to communicate with and always thinking and working on behalf of me. You have done the best job to assess what areas needed to be improved and were able to arrange workmen to do the job well in a short period of time. The house was sold in a few days. You have kept me informed what was going on all the time. You have actively promoted my property in different sorts of media besides MLS. You have arranged many showings in the first few days of listing.
We learned that Curt was a professional with a practical knowledge of houses and excellent understanding of the real estate market. He was a patient, well spoken, man of integrity that wanted to help us find a house in our price range in a very competitive market. Curt went out of his way to accommodate us, even to the point of picking up my husband a couple times and driving him to view various houses. Curt could quickly tell us the pros and cons of the properties we were really interested in, allowing us to make the decisions about how to proceed and not pressuring us into any decisions. He loves this line of work and has the expertise and confidence needed to make the process enjoyable. At the same time, he is focused and works hard to meet the needs of his clients.
~ Ed and Kelly
Every action went well. You were methodical, thorough in research, understood our “peculiar” requirements very well and went ahead showing us a plethora of houses. You gave us your valuable time, were patient with our demands and kept your promised timelines. I will recommend you as a REALTOR® to all my friends and family. You were par excellence. We are new to Canada so we wished to seek what we had left in our home country. You did not tell us that it was not possible but you proceeded to listen to us and came back with as near suggestions as possible. Within the parameters of our ask, you gave us alternates. Buying a dream home is probably a one time activity. You were focused and detailed in your approach. We must also admit that your advice on our suggestions were at times diametrically opposite but we knew that you knew that you were speaking honestly and with knowledge. For some homes that we had asked you to show, you conveyed why we should not be going in for the home. Your advice did not seem right then but now we know that you were 100% correct. You gave us our dream home. There could not be a better one.
~ Ajit Sinha
Most importantly to me is communication and at all times, the information I needed or requested was readily available. My expectations, some may say, were very high. Curt managed to not only find the exact house I had outlined, he found me a house that had more than I even knew I wanted, all for far below my budget. During the entire process, I felt like I was working with a friend, not a REALTOR®.
~ Buyer, September 2015
Curt was dedicated, patient and committed to always being available, offering advice when asked and acting on my best interests. Curt has a strong commitment to his clients and that shows through in his genuine care, his expertise and in all his efforts. Even when I know Curt has a lot of things on the go and lots of people in his life that need his attention, he still gave us his undivided attention when he was with us, or when we needed a telephone conversation. He always made time for us, when we needed it. I appreciate doing business with someone who has good values and prioritizes family. Thank you Curt for making this an enjoyable experience!
~ Stefanie Romeo
Curt, I thank you very much for your patience in helping us through our agitation over non essentials to a beautiful home. You are indeed the best in your field …and you deserve special recognition for courteously, patiently, and competently assisting us. We value you, Curt, more than you’ll ever know. In a difficult market, you found us a home!
We really enjoyed working with you Curt. The sale of our house went quickly and smoothly. The purchase of our new home went smooth as well. It had been 15 years since we had last sold and bought a home so your guidance was much appreciated. You were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
~ Jane and John Bisaro
Awesome experience with Curt. Detail oriented, Respectful, Knowledgeable, Focused, Enthusiastic. Thank you Curt!!!
We appreciated Curt’s professional yet approachable manner. He kept us informed throughout the entire process, from selling to buying. Curt went above and beyond by providing us with cleaning services for both our sold house and our new purchase (that was fantastic and such a stress reliever), and even provided us with compensation when things fell through. We loved our experience with Curt Derksen and cannot say enough good things about his services.
Curt was prompt at getting me any information that I require. He is personable and if there is ever an issue, he always work quickly to provide a solution. Curt, you were fantastic to work with and I’d highly recommend your services.
~ Sally Dietterle
Working with Curt was fantastic! His mission is to serve people and he’s a man of his word. Throughout the process of selling my home Curt was honest about what was realistic. He didn’t pressure me into making quick decisions and he offered sound advice. He also took the time to get to know me. He cared about ensuring I wasn’t just another customer. I was appreciative of his selflessness as he continually put my best interest at the forefront.
~ Steve Jolliffe
As an investor who has worked with a variety of real estate agents in Western Canada I was thrilled with our experience with Curt. He is exceptionally hard working and trust worthy. Curt brought many great insights and negotiated in a manner that was courteous but firm. I would highly recommend Curt due to our personal experience with him.
~ Scott Street
Curt was a great negotiator on our behalf the deal was closed quickly and efficiently. He arranged all necessary inspectors within a day and ensured all subjects and deficiencies were dealt with to our satisfaction. He was our voice and champion out there in the marketplace, sending flyers to other firms etc, as I wanted a quick sale. It all paid off with multiple showings booked in a weekend and in the end negotiating the best deal for us including dates, subjects, and receiving more than our asking price. All the while he was in touch constantly with the changing landscape that is created with multiple offers and I always felt completely in the know.
~ Janice Dey
Absolutely, Mr. Derksen is an excellent negotiator. He is very skilled in terms of finding a win-win situation that pleases everyone. I am very grateful for all the extra work he has done for me in order to negotiate the house price as well as some extra items that were in the house.
~ Bassam Khaleel
It was a very good experience working with Curt. He has a very pleasant manner and we were especially pleased with the quality of the photographs. We would definitely recommend him to our family and friends.
~ Jack and Ruth Malischewsk
We found Curt to be very patient while we figured out what we wanted to do. And even though we were undecided about selling our house Curt took the time to show us some places that we might have been interested in. His patience & understanding was very much appreciated…as well as the quick sale!
~ Jim and Barb Stewart
We had a great experience with Curt. Navigating the roadblocks we came across with ease and precision made the whole experience easier on us. He took the time to call us and check in and see how we were doing when we had a few set backs and providing encouragement when we were feeling a bit hopeless exceeded my expectations of what a typical REALTOR® would do. Curt went above and beyond in that respect.
~ Chloe Bisaro
We greatly appreciated your patience dealing with us. Coming in a new area you could easily have sold us houses that were not in our best interest .You put our needs before your financial gain. Always professional and available. Exceeded our expectations in every area.
~ Jackie and Glen
Curt took the time to listen to all the requirements we had for a home and then found homes that met those needs. As soon as a home was listed that could potentially be a good fit, it was communicated to us right away and a showing was set up quickly.
~ Josh and Aleks
It was great, Curt made sure to not spam me and only called me with great deals which aligned with my objectives. This saved me a lot of time. When I found a place I liked, it was not yet on MLS so we needed to move quickly to avoid multiple offers. Curt rushed to the house and shot a video of it for me since I was away on business and would not have been able to tour it for several days. The “virtual tour” he gave me provided enough detail for me to tie the place up in an offer before it officially hit the market. He listened carefully to my goals and was careful to only show me exactly what I wanted to see.
You are very knowledgeable about the Abbotsford market. You went above and beyond helping me find homes specific to my needs, and renters for these homes. Abbotsford was another world to me. Had no idea what to expect, who to call for anything really, but you filled in all the gaps from mortgage broker, renovation co, to renter. You took calls while on vacay, always followed up with my requests /questions in a timely manner. Went above and beyond what realtors do. Most don’t want to be bothered once the deal is accepted. Not you. You helped me navigate my way thru my first (and 2nd) investment property until they were rented.
