A little about me

and why I love real estate

I have been engaged in the real estate business for over 20 years. I started out writing second mortgages and refinancing first mortgages and then moved up to writing purchase mortgages. I would work with all the government programs designed to help the first time home buyer. I found that I really enjoyed helping someone purchase their home – whether it be their first home or their last home. I think it was the joy and excitement of it all. Around the mid 2000’s I decided that while I enjoyed the mortgage industry as a whole, I was getting tired of refinancing someone’s home to save them a few dollars or shorten their mortgage term. At the same time I really enjoyed the purchase side of the business so I decided to shift my focus from the mortgage side of the transaction to actually helping the buyer find their new home. My initial clientele mainly consisted of buyers. I assume this is because I had always worked with the buyer in the mortgage industry and that is where my expertise was. When I moved over to the realty side of the business I found that while most people want to become home owners, many didn’t have any idea where to start – especially when it came to their asset and credit management. So, over time I developed a unique system designed to turn renters into homeowners that focuses on the financial end of the transaction. We still use this system today, and are constantly tweaking it to meet the needs of today’s buyer. Our early first time buyers are now turning into move up buyers. This, coupled with our unique ability to develop buyers, has really helped our listing side of the business as well.  Investors are now reaching out to us to list their homes because they know we do more than just put a sign in the yard.  More and more we are finding that the seller wants and demands more than just putting their listing in the MLS. They want their home advertised in all media at all times and we accommodate them.

Our clients are awesome

and here is what they are saying

“Hi, my name is John Cooper. Kurt was our Realtor. He did a really great job at helping us sell our home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. He took a lot of time upfront with us, helping us understand what our needs were and what we needed to do to get our house 'in order' to sale. That took a little longer than we thought but we came together as a team to get it ready. He did a superb job! We actually had 7 showings in the first couple of days and an offer accepted within 2 days after that! So kudos to Kurt for selling our home uber fast. He did a phenomenal job! He also did a great job throughout the whole process from not only the point of acceptance but from there to the closing. There are a lot of incidentals that happen between all that. He was a great 'go-to' person through that nerve wracking process. Thanks again Kurt and again we would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!”

“Hi, my name is Kardajia and I met Kurt through the Anderson Financial Group! It took about 2 weeks to find a property for me (some of them weren't a good fit). He's very quick and good with responding - very down to earth - so you don't have to hold back on what you like and what you don't like. If you don't like something let him know and he will find something in your price range - something you are looking for. ..Let him know and he will send you thumbs up/great houses! Just talk to him as a friend and not as a Realtor because that is what he become to me - a friend and he helped me pick something nice. Thank you Kurt again for helping me pick this beautiful beautiful home!”

It's a 'process' but I am here now and Kurt is wonderful. He's walked with me the entire way and told me not to give up and not to stress.

“Hi, I'm Richara Jennings and I have been working with Kurt Clements. I have been trying to find a place and fortunately I've been able to find the condo I really like. Kurt was with me every step of the way. He had this whole back-up team for me ready to go as soon as I found a place - this is from the lender to the insurance folks, to legal help. So everything just fell into place pretty seamlessly. It was a great experience. Kurt walked me through everything. Kurt was involved with everything. So I really appreciate that! He has a fantastic team and it was a smooth smooth process. He is a very reassuring and professional agent!”

“I'm Vince Massey. When I was looking for a Realtor to sell my house I wanted someone who could sell my house fast at the maximum price with the least amount of hassle. In Kurt Clements at Insider Show Homes I found that Realtor. He was able to understand the market conditions...He created a marketing strategy using the latest online technology and a showing schedule that attracted real buyers with the least amount of disruption in my life. In the end we were able to sell our house with two weekends of showings and three offers over our asking price. I would definitely use Kurt Clements of Insider Show the next time I have to sell a house!”
