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.

As a newcomer to property investment, we had many questions and much apprehension. Jake has been so helpful to us through this process. He provided the guidance and assurance we needed. His years of experience were quite evident as we viewed different properties. Jake showed us what to look for in properties, what repairs needed to be made and what the cost would be to complete those repairs. All of these attributes gave us the confidence to make a our first purchase of investment property! I would highly recommend Jacob Kurtz to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Jake is much more than a realtor, he has become a mentor and a friend.
Thank you Jake

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.

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.

Jake is the first and only Real Estate Professional I reach out to for any real estate transaction. His experience and dedication are indispensable whereas all phases of the process are concerned, plus everyone ancillary to the transaction make the process carefree and efficient. Start with Jacob Kurtz; if he isn't the best choice for the job, he'll gladly point you to what organization is. I enjoy our relationship as much as any I have.

Jacob did a great job for my brother and me. The sale of our house was quick, smooth, and above asking price. Jacob answered all of our questions immediately and without hesitation; he obviously knows his business. My brother and I are both quite pleased.

Jacob Kurtz did a fantastic job. He was far better than me or my girlfriend could have ever expected. He kept us notified every step of the way and he went up to bat for us any chance he could just because that's the type of person he is.

We are most grateful for the opportunity to work with Jacob Kurtz. His professionalism, patience, and understanding did not waver over the time it took to find the right home in what were sometimes trying circumstances for us as buyers. Mr. Kurtz worked very effectively to secure the best possible opportunities for us, and continues to work on our behalf, providing assistance as we prepare the house for our move. We recommend him most highly, as he was recommended to us, with confidence that he will do an excellent job for his future clients.

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.

Jake led us through the entire process (this was only the second time we have sold a house) and made it painless. He was accessible and enthusiastic about every step. He is a man of integrity and family values and I would be completely comfortable recommending him to a friend or family member who needs to sell or buy a home!

Jake sold our last house and recently assisted my husband and I in purchasing our new home! His impressive knowledge, experience, patience and calming demeanor made the whole process feel smooth. We never felt pressured or stressed. I am very happy with the price we ended up paying for the perfect new home he found for us. I'm on cloud nine In our new house, it's been so wonderful! I am very thankful to Jake and his helpful, very kind, professional associates... It's obvious that the Realty World-American River Properties team all really love what they do!

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.

I was blessed to have Jake as an agent when I bought my first home in 2011. Jake made me feel as though my house and purchase was top priority, even though he works with so many. When I decided to sell, and buy closer to my children's schools, Jake was the only one I knew who make that happen. And he did! He also introduced me to Daniel from SINDEO. Both Jake and Daniel make an amzingly successfull combination!

I have moved before and I know how it can turn your life upside down. Jacob was the perfect solution. He took a personal interest in all of the details with recommendations and help even before we needed it.
We wouldn't consider a move again without Jakes professional help.

Great job selling my house quickly and for more than I originally wanted. He really put in the time to take care of my needs and keep me well informed during the process. He was even available several months later to share his knowledge and give some advice when I had questions about the new closing processes.

Jacob Kurtz retaliator at Realty World assisted us in the sale of our property in Orangevale.
We choose Jacob out or a group of three realtors. Our reasons being he was well prepared with comps in hand of other property's in the area. Hi looked professional and it was clear from talking with him he would do his best to sell our property in a timely fashion
He was easy to work with returning our calls in prompt fashion. We were very satisfied and would highly recommend him to any of our friends.

When selling or buying a house, you need someone who will advocate for you. You also need someone who will maintain a cool head while everything seems to be falling apart. I cannot thank Jacob Kurtz enough for all that he did for as our realtor. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house.
