“I am so thankful we used Kurt to represent us in selling our town home. His integrity and up front information allowed us to go into the process with a peaceful mind. His knowledge of the area and competitive pricing helped us get our full price offer and sale within days!! Could not have done it without him. You won't be disappointed!! Thanks Kurt!”
"Kurt was exactly what we needed in a real estate agent. He took the time to listen to our wants and needs, and was a great guide through the confusing first-time home buying process and explained everything in great detail. He had the patience of a saint, as we worked with him to find the right home for us for 9 months and we were a bit picky. In the end, Kurt helped us find the perfect place for us. Though very patient and accommodating, he was also very persistent in communicating with other entities (i.e., builders, new developers, and lenders) when they were less responsive with us. I would highly recommend Kurt as your guide to the home buying process as well!"

"I've known Kurt Nystrand for nearly 10 years and he has been a great friend and Realtor for me when I purchased my first house in Tacoma in 2006 when I was single, and for my 2nd house now, purchased with my wife in 2014. Kurt is very patient and has really went above and beyond a typical realtor. My wife and I have been looking for a house for the over 2 years and he has shown us many houses until we found our current dream home. Some of the experiences have been really funny and others were sad, but he has been with us through them all.
Kurt's communication has been excellent so we always know what to expect ahead of time because he has explained it to us. So we know either not to get our hopes up or to be excited. I really appreciate that part about him. He's very honest and cares about his clients. He also has a great sense of humor in a line of work that can be tough to have a sense of humor in.
Looking for houses in our current housing market and buying one in our price range is not easy, but using Kurt as our realtor has been a bright spot in the process. I look forward to using Kurt when we plan to sell or buy a house in the future, but first we will enjoy the house that he has helped us buy at the present."

"Kurt, Thank you so much for walking us through the purchase of our new home. Having you as our Realtor has been such a blessing. Without your help and guidance this process could have been a nightmare. You are truly a professional and we sincerely appreciate you."
"Our family moved back to the United States after living overseas for 17yrs. For anyone who does not know, trying to show you have good credit to buy a home after living outside the US for a long period of time is not easy. We were not sure how we were going to do it.
Kurt was able to put us in touch with a great lending agent who not only got us a loan but kept it at a competitive rate. Kurt was very patient because this process took some time to get pre-approval. But once we were ready to buy a house he was always willing and available to look through homes. As first time home buyers in the United States, Kurt walked us through all the in’s and out’s of the legal stuff and helped us weed through all the concerns and issues we had. When it came down to purchasing the home everything went smoothly and all of the processes were spelled out for us.
We appreciate how Kurt surrounds himself with professional colleagues from the lending agent to the house inspector. We know that Kurt has a high regard for his clients and will go above and beyond to help make sure you get the home that is right for you. We are grateful for all his efforts in making this process as painless as possible. We would definitely recommend Kurt to anyone buying a home.
Thanks again for all you help Kurt."

“My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Kurt Nystrand to purchase our first home. As first time home buyers we were quite nervous about the whole home buying process but Kurt walked us through step by step. He always made himself available to answer any questions and was extremely prompt in responding to any needs that arose.
Kurt is also extremely courteous and patient. I appreciated his willingness to always put the client first. He handles himself extremely professionally, but also we felt like we were speaking confidently to a friend through the whole process.
I truly feel that he went above and beyond what may have been expected in a Realtor and I would, with confidence and high regard, recommend him to any good friend and relative that would be interested in purchasing a home.”

“My parents and I really appreciate Kurt's significant help with our home search! We are very glad owning our new home! We are from a foreign country, and learned a great deal from Kurt about every detail for home purchase in the US. He guided us to proceed each individual step precisely, offering perspectives on every critical aspect of property we should consider and every deadline we should keep in mind. Kurt's expertise and clear explanation for each of our questions were very much helpful for us to make our choice and decision. We felt great working with him since everything, including property visit, handling of documents, time arrangement, was organized in such a professional way; this means a lot to me due to my busy working schedule. Kurt always placed customers as the highest priority. I remember a few times he cancelled his personal arrangements and instead helped us to deal with our urgent issues. We STRONGLY recommend Kurt to every person or family who plan to buy a new home!”
"Kurt has been very helpful and patient through our closing. We had many things come up during our closing period and he was on top of it all and kept his patience through all of it. He helped us out by taking video clips of the unit and sent it to us since we were in California. That really helped reveal the true details of the unit! We were pleased with his extra effort to meet multiple contractors to go into our unit to get estimates for us during the process as well! He went the extra mile to help us which was really appreciated since we bought a place from out of state! Thanks Kurt!!"

"It was December last year that I found myself leaving my place of employment and having to look for a new job. It took me 4 months to gain employment again and we could not survive on one income. During that time bills were mounting and our mortgage payments were spiraling out of control and we were receiving phone calls daily on when we would be making our next payment. Though we didn’t want to sell our home, after reviewing our financial situation we realized this may be our only recourse. We were offered a Short Sale agreement by our mortgage company and, though we were afraid to lose our home, we decided to talk to Kurt Nystrand about our situation.
Upon our first meeting we knew we made the right decision to talk with Kurt as he was empathetic to our situation and never did he put us down or make us feel like we had caused our situation. Kurt responded quickly by looking at our home that very day. Our home needed many repairs and could not be sold for market values in our area but he gave us a solid quote on our home and several options. We decided to list our home that very day.
We began the process of moving and cleaning out our home of 21 years. Kurt called us and gave us encouragement throughout the tedious process. We had many days where the memories would engulf us and we could not continue on when looking through objects, letters and such from our parents who had passed away. But with Kurt’s guidance we did make it through the process and he praised us with each small accomplishment we made along the way.
We have moved into an apartment for now and Kurt is already talking to us about repairing our credit and helping us to get into a home in the near future. Without his constant guidance I don’t think we could have accomplished what we did. Our home sold this past month and we now are free from our debt in the house. We have come into our time of “Jubilee” as was told to us by Kurt at our very first meeting. I would recommend Kurt Nystrand for anyone that is selling their home."

“While we had bought and sold houses using friends of the family in the past we were very comfortable with Kurt after meeting him and signed on to have him represent us. I could go on and on about Kurt's personal and professional service, but really want you to know that we trust Kurt and will continue to use his service and recommend him to our friends.”
“Kurt has been helping me find a condo on the Eastside. I’ve worked with other real estate agents and finally found Kurt. Kurt has many years of experience in real estate, which became evident in his ability to answer my questions and how effectively he communicated with people.
Kurt was extremely conscientious and kept me informed as new condos came on the market and made arrangements for me to see any condo I was interested in right away. Kurt took the time to help me understand each step of the way and included explaining the entire contract terms to me line by line. Kurt thoroughly researched all my questions and concerns that I had and I could always rely on him to get back to me quickly.
I found Kurt to be a very, very hard worker with tremendous integrity and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house or condo.”
"We had been feeling overwhelmed and discouraged at the prospect of trying to find a house for my mom...until we were introduced to Kurt. His warm, friendly, knowledgeable and professional manner put us at ease at once. He asked us many questions, listened carefully to the specifics of our situation, and right away went to work to find something that would meet our needs and desires. Kurt did an amazing job of communicating just the right amount--not flooding us with too much information, but giving us a continual stream of useful ideas and listings. We came to trust his wisdom regarding buying and selling real estate, but even more importantly to us, his integrity and character. My mom is now enjoying her beautiful new home, and we are very thankful for Kurt, and the vital role he played in making that possible."

“Kurt and Marc,
Recently I heard of some troubles that one of my friends had during his home purchasing due to some loan issues as well as some disputes between the seller and buyer.
This reminds me of the relative smoothness Lily and I had experienced when we bought our house last year, which was really because you guys took care of all the potential problems and risks, even ones we might not have realized were there.
I just want to send our words of appreciation for the excellent work you had done for us as the Real Estate Agent and loan broker. We will definitely pass your names on to other friends who are in need of buying.”
Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect house! You were very efficient and professional during the entire buying process. We really appreciated the way you took all of our needs into consideration and maintained that focus. And thank you for keeping a level and calm demeanor during a few difficult situations that we encountered along the way -- your great attitude definitely helped keep my stress level down. Kindness, patience, and temperance were all attributes that I saw in you. I will be recommending you to all of my friends.”

“I've known Kurt for about 6 years as a friend and more recently he's been on a mission to help me search for a home. During the process, Kurt was very organized and was meticulous about details - both with the listings and any other questions I had about properties. I always felt like Kurt has had my family’s best interest and with that said, even though we found out during the process that it wasn't the correct timing to purchase a home - he was supportive throughout the entire process. When our time is right, we will definitely use his services and expertise again. Thanks Kurt!”
Thank you so much for helping me search for my home. You went out of your way to drive me all over a huge area at what seemed like a million houses. Your time and dedication to making sure I had peace of mind on what I was investing in showed me you truly cared. Each step of the way you were right by me with clear explanations and expectations. During the deal phase your integrity was so evident---as you know we faced much opposition, but you stood by me until the end--and even then some! :) Thank you for your outstanding service. I take every opportunity to share your name with others in the market for a new home."
With my limited budget, competition for a nice condo was high and supply was low. You stuck it out with me and showed me a wide variety of places, and I never felt low on your priority list. We were able to get out to see potential homes quickly, some of them the day they listed. Thank you very much!! What I most appreciated, though, was your detailed handling of the paperwork and endless patience with my endless questions on how and why and every question under the sun in having to do with the process of buying a house for the first time. I confidently refer everyone I know who is looking for a home to you!!"
