I don't typically write online reviews but I have to make an exception for Tim and Curt. I pride myself in being very analytical and rarely unable to find areas to improve on in any given transaction. With that being said, Curtis Stocking and Tim Kruse are the best realtors I have ever worked with (I have worked with a total of six Realtors throughout the years before finally working with Curt then Tim). They are exactly what you want in a Realtor. They are both highly knowledgeable, who know the ins and outs of the entire process from A to Z. They are extremely patient, honest, and have great negotiation skills. They tell you what concerns them about the house they are showing you as if they are purchasing the house for their own families (builder, schools, traffic, parking, resale value, etc.)
Speaking of house showings, we have toured and made offers on properties in Woodland (Wild Wings Golf Course), Vacaville (Brown's Valley and North Village), Fairfield (Rancho Solano and Paradise Valley), Cordelia, Benicia and Vallejo (Hidden Brook community) since they wanted to ensure that I find the perfect house.
What most stood out to me was Tim's availability and how quickly he returned calls, texts, and/or emails. He is always there for you and you will never feel you could have gotten an offer in sooner. My family and I will forever use Tim and Curt's services for any future real estate transaction. They equally have my highest possible recommendation. Do yourself a favor and call Tim and/or Curt.
PS: Tim still keeps in contact even after assisting me to purchase the perfect house, on the exact street, in the neighborhood and city of my choice. - Rami G
I have nothing but high regards for our Real Estate Agent Tim Kruse. He is professional, and extremely efficient at getting everything set in motion. He not only found our dream property, but also listed our house, and got both tasks done all at the same time. He worked effortlessly between traveling back and forth between properties, to answering all of my questions till very late and first thing in the morning. I am so grateful and appreciative for all of his hard work. Unfortunately, my husband and I had to back out of the contract due to personal reasons. Tim only thought of us and what was best for us. I was expecting him to be somewhat upset, yet he was so gracious in spite of it all.
If you are looking for someone you can completely trust and respect, someone who is very knowledgeable and passionate about their job, someone who is there for you to answer all of your questions at any time...Tim is the Agent for you.
We also had the pleasure of dealing a few times with Curtis Stocking, who also was very prompt, kind and helpful.
Thank you Green Fields! When it's time to move again, we know who to call! - Amy D.
"Working with Mr. Kruse has been a pleasure. He has helped us to both sell our first house and buy the house we have looked to settle into. He was always punctual, diligent, and most importantly to me, honest. There was no point that I felt he did not try his absolute best to either make clear or rectify any step in the process that was cloudy or went outside expectations. He took care of my family and I, worked to keep everyone on board and satisfied, and was there for from start to finish. I would thoroughly recommend Tim to anyone seeking to buy or sell their home."
“Tim is the most patient agent I have ever encountered. We worked with him over the past year and a half. He never pushed us to make decisions. When we finally closed on a house, he made sure we received every benefit possible. Always reliable and very honest.”
“Tim is more in tune with the many market variables affecting homes sales than any real estate professional I have worked with. His guidance has led us toward two property sales well over the projected market values. His advice has proven to provide bottom line value to both sellers and buyers. Any potential seller or buyer would be more than fortunate to have Tim Kruse as their representative.”
“I currently live on the east coast (Northern VA) and have been trying to find a place in the bay area to move to the west coast. Tim truly cares about his client. The market in the bay area is very competitive and strange in many ways. if a house becomes available you got to be there or you will lose the deal, being on the east coast I was at a clear disadvantage. Many times Tim would go to the house that I liked and Skype with me showing me the house so I would not have to jump on the plane to be there. The process took almost a year and many realtors would have lost interest but Tim was focused and committed to finding me the right home and he did.. Early March 2017 we closed on a beautiful house, masterfully negotiated a great price, and closed in a week. I have worked with many realtors in my life who helped me buy or sell my homes, but none like Tim. The man is a super caring professional and these days you don't find that many like him.”
"I've worked with Bryant on many projects that have ranged from agricultural to retail. In all of our dealings, he has displayed a strong sense of creativity, and a willingness to put in a little extra work to make the more exciting possibilities a reality. If you're not looking for the typical, lowest common denominator deal, but want to do something a little more unique, Bryant knows how to listen to a client and really deliver something different."
“We are proud to write a review for Frank. My wife and I had been searching for a new place to live with a country setting, acreage, place for a garden, and animal for more than two years. About a year ago, at an open house, we met Frank Newton. That changed everything. Frank deserves more than the 5 stars we gave him on every one of these categories. In addition to those, we found Frank to be motivated by his integrity, honesty, and a desire to convey the best customer service possible. His main goal was to make sure we were pleased, happy, and satisfied with what we bought. Needless to say, he found us the perfect place. We have been here for over a year now. We had a great business relationship and became friends along the way. Thanks Frank!”
“Frank it was wonderful to work with. He knows the business inside and out and made short work of selling our home. I admire his attention to detail and his experience and knowledge of the variety of tools available. I still tear up when I watch the video he had made of our home and I still think about his cookies. Many kudos for Frank!”
“Frank did a great job preparing and advertising to make our open house a great success. We had more than 80 people attend our open house, more than 10 offers, and sold for well above asking price.”
"Working with Curtis and Jackie has been a pleasure. Curtis is extremely knowledgeable of the local market, responsive to questions and/or comments from his clients, and handled the sale of our complex 2 house property professionally and skillfully. Jackie's follow through on all documents requiring signature was very impressive. Together they make a terrific team. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a property in the local area." - Mike & Debra M.
"My Husband and I were referred to Curtis by our Lender, I was nervous of course because we wanted to make sure we found the right person for our first time home buying journey. The first few minutes on the phone with Curtis I knew he would be great. He is the greatest! On top of funny, personable, and outgoing - he really knows the market and really helped us make the best offer to both get the house and also get the best deal. We will never use anyone else, he is amazing. Jackie Stocking who handles a lot of the paperwork and emails back and forth was equally helpful and amazing to us. 100 stars to these guys!" - The Turner Family
“Curtis and everyone at "Team Stocking" went above and beyond time and time again to get this deal done and to deliver the best possible outcome for us. From finding every record about the property, tirelessly negotiating with the seller on our behalf, and even arranging signing on a holiday weekend. We wouldn't have been able to make it happen without him - Curtis, I can't thank you enough!” - Daren R.
"Buying a house is a really big deal and its hard to find an agent that is dedicated, responsive and knowledgeable. Curtis and his staff go the extra mile to make you feel like you are really taken care of and are fully informed. Curtis was available whenever we had questions, he responded to our texts and phone calls quickly and thoroughly. We especially appreciated Curtis' creativity in making our contingent offer work for all people involved." - John & Leslie L.
"The search for the property was long and extensive. Curtis worked tirelessly on our behalf to find just the right property for our needs. After we found the perfect property for us, Curtis showed his true professionalism during a difficult process from beginning to end always working with our best interest in mind. We couldn't be happier with the results. I would also mention that the Stocking team was incredible. we didn't realize the importance of this aspect until we were involved in a bit of a complicated sale and purchase. They were on top of everything." - Frank & Mary R.
"Curtis and his team have been a valuable local resource in many ways. He managed the entire home purchase transaction (and expected headaches) with ease, connected us with local professionals, offered just the right amount of guidance and communication (free of feeling pressured/overwhelmed), and is simply a down-to-earth, consummate professional who knows his stuff! Thank you Curtis and the Stocking team!" - Robbie & Charlene M.
"I don't often heap high praise on an individual but this is a special case. I wanted to sell my house and contracted with Curtis Stocking of Green Fields Reality. The home took a bit longer to sell because of issues with the house but Curtis stayed with it having the same level of enthusiasm and energy that was apparent the first day I met him. Here is the amazing part, Curtis has, time and again, gone way beyond what any normal Real Estate Agent would do to retain a client. When I tell people how much he has done for me, volunteering his time and energy to help me they can't believe it. He helped me move heavy furniture so I could paint, went to the dump several times with his trailer filled with my discarded stuff, got maintenance people in to maintain the house while I was away, helped me stage a yard sale, etc, etc, etc. I think for Curtis it's not so much about the money it's about the pride in doing a good job and helping others. He just makes his commission by being a good person and earning every penny of it." - Steve E.
"Curtis helped my husband and I find our dream home! He was so knowledgeable and willing to show us the house, after house, after house! We highly recommend him whether you are looking for your next home, or selling your current one!" - Josh & Jill R.
"Curtis made the buying experience a lot less daunting than it was. We saw various homes together and was always a great resource whenever I had any questions. I know I ask too many questions and wanted someone to really explain the process to me and Curtis was exactly who I needed him to be. I had other agents before Curtis who I felt pressured me into just getting into anything they could find me but not Curtis. His experience selling homes really shone through when we got to the final stages of getting the comps together and making an appropriate offer on the home." - Ricardo B.
Curtis and his team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They made the process of selling my home simple and pain-free. In our initial meeting, Curtis listened well and understood what my goals were in selling the house. From then on there was never a doubt that he was focused on achieving those goals on my behalf. He and his team were great at communicating with me throughout the process. I always felt like I knew where we were, what was needed of me next, and never felt overwhelmed with detail. Whether by email, text, or phone, everyone on the team was very responsive. I recommend Curtis and his team without hesitation. - Piper G.
Curtis is one of the most professional, knowledgeable, and enjoyable people to be around. Through his many contacts throughout northern California he was able to get us our original asking price for our parcel of farm ground. He found the right clients and all negotiations were a joy. He also has a 5-star crew behind him. Thank you all. - Jim & Joan F.
"As first time home buyers, Chad took the time to ensure we had a full understanding of the home buying process from beginning to end. He was there for any and all questions we had and encouraged us to read everything and ask questions. He was quick to communicate updates or any situations that needed to be addressed. I highly recommend Chad to anyone who is looking for a home! (I honestly wish I could give more than 5 stars!)" - Andrew & Alexandria
"Jackie is an amazing realtor. She worked very hard to help us find our dream house and did not give up until we found a home that matched exactly what my wife and I wanted. She is patient and intelligent when it comes to the negotiation process. We cannot thank her enough for all of her hard work. Highly recommend her as your realtor." - Andres & Caitlin
