About Curt

I am from a small rural community west of KW called Belgrave. I attended high school in this small farming community and then later went to the University of Western Ontario in London. I graduated with an Honours Degree in Geography with an emphasis on land use development and urban planning. I then attended teachers college in Australia at the University of Wollongong. After completing the teaching program I returned to Ontario to find a teaching job. I quickly realized that teaching jobs were few in far between. While attending university in Australia I started doing a lot of reading on real estate investing which piqued my interest. After little success on the teaching job hunt, a friend and I decided to buy a flip house borrowing money from our parents to come up with the downpayment.

After 4 months and a lot of sweat equity (we did almost all the work ourselves) we ended up selling the home for a $30,000 dollar profit. Keep in mind that was split between the 2 of us. When we factored the hours we put in we probably made about $10/hour, but gained a ton of experience.

I decided then and there that real estate investing was the path for me. I did some quick math on how much the agent we used made on the deal and realized that if I got my license, not only could we save on commissions we could also get an “insider edge” on finding new properties.

Being in my mid 20’s and very naïve I set out to get my real estate license not really looking into everything associated with it. 12 months later I was licensed and quickly realized that maintaining a license is very expensive. I needed to sell some houses in order to afford my license. So this was my path to becoming a realtor. Now almost 10 years later my wife and I along with our colleagues Heather and Suzanne run a very successful real estate brokerage and Erin & I have grown our real estate investment portfolio to 7 rental properties. My goal of being a real estate investor hasn’t changed, but along the way we have really enjoyed helping our clients realize the potential real estate has in growing their net worth.

Our extensive knowledge of construction as well as knowing the ins and outs of the rental market brings a lot of value to our clients through assisting them in their own investments whether it is that first rental property or what upgrades to do to their home to net them the best return.

What a great experience! As first time home buyers we were nervous and even slightly embarrassed by how little we knew about the process of buying a home. Curt & Erin immediately took those nerves away from us by answering ever single silly question we had and in a way that we understood. While viewing homes they taught us things to look for and what to keep an eye out for. They were able to give us rough estimates of costs to replace or repair things. They really made sure that we knew what we were getting into They were extremely patient and always keen to show us any home that we asked about. During the process they referred us to a few people along the way (mortgage specialists, home inspectors) and we could not have been happier with every single one of them. Overall, there is no possible way we could have asked for a better experience!

I had a special experience with Knight Realty. I remember with my wife, the care Erin and Curt gave us when we were looking for our first house. One house we saw, Curt said straight out to me if you decide to move later down the road I don't think you will get much out of it. His honesty is what makes him great as his job. Not many decent humans around anymore, especially in a competitive business. Erin was great guiding us through paper work and even helping us brain storm what our house could look like. Thank you guys very much.

I didn't think I wanted to work with a realtor until I met Curt at a viewing of a house (he was the listing realtor), and I knew then and there that Knight realty was for us. Both Curt and Erin are super patient, attentive and genuine people, and were very helpful for my particular wants in a house. They were very knowledgeable, and provided honest feedback about houses and what needed to be done to license a home as a duplex. I am very satisfied with the service I received, and look forward to working with them for years to come for my next investment homes, and strongly recommend their services to everyone. Thank you so very much, Curt and Erin, for your help in finding my perfect first home!

Curt & Erin listened to our needs, then found us the ideal property. They took the time to educate and guide us through every step of the purchase. They went above and beyond, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have found Knight Realty.

Amazing people. Me and my wife got our first home with them 4 years ago and they are amazing. Not only did they work with our schedule but when we went to look at houses with them they pointed out pros and cons of things we did not think of and also pointed out structural faults we did not notice in some places. They listened to our wants and don't wants on our list and delivered amazingly. Thank you Erin and Curt.

We are so fortunate to have found Knight Realty to sell our home and help us to buy a new one. Curt, Erin and team really know how to sell a home! The pictures of the house were amazing and they had a solid plan in place to sell our home. We always felt like they were working hard to make this process as simple and pleasant as possible. When looking at homes, they have been so accommodating when booking viewings for us and are always there to answer any questions we may have. Curt and Erin go above and beyond by doing their research and are always prepared with information when we meet. Overall, we highly recommend Knight Realty.

If you want to buy or sell a home and at the same time have conviction that you have done so thoughtfully and efficiently then consider Knight Realty. Curt, Erin and the team at Knight Realty are thorough, patient, honest and accessible. There are very good reasons why Knight Realty has enjoyed success - success generally follows those who add value and are good at what they do.
