24 hours! That?s right we had a contract on our home within 24 hours of the listing going live. Curt and the rest of the Stinson team did an amazing job assisting with the sale of our home ? from the pictures for listing to closing his team was always available to assist (regardless of the request). The Stinson Team is the #1 in the market ? I would highly recommend and defiantly use again. If you are in need of an agent ? select the best of the best Curt Stinson and Team

Helped me buy home
My husband and I had a great experience with Curt and the rest of the Stinson Team when purchasing our new house. I have dealt with other agents in the past but the service we received from Curt was far superior to what we had experienced in the past. I have referred several friends and family to Curt and have all received the same level of professionalism and excellent service. Thanks again Curt!

Helped me buy and sell homes
Curt was very helpful in helping us find a home our lease was running out, We called Curt and he came to our home asking what we were looking for, he then came up with 20 home for sale, we looked at all the houses , he found a short sale for us which needed no work on it, move in ready. His team and Tom from VIP had us in the house within 3 week, they contacted us every day with up dates. The Stinson Team stands up to what they say, we would be a return customer. Thank you To Curt and his team we are very happy in our new home Less ... More

The Stinson team listed and sold my house as a short sale. It was a long and stressful process because of the bank's reluctance to short sale but after 18 months, the short sale was finalized and I am rid of the house. The two main team members with which I worked (Karen Nelson and Jeanette Flonnes) were awesome. They answered my questions quickly, honestly and thoroughly, and kept my sane throughout the process.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
We are considering selling our newly built custom home. We have built and sold homes in the past and have had good success using a Realtor. For a current market analysis, we contacted Curt Stinson, a Realtor who has other properties listed in our neighborhood, Curt Stinson arrived for his appointment without a single comp of the neighborhood. Although he appeared unprepared, he attempted to impress us with his experience, expertise and knowledge of the real estate market He called himself ?brutally honest? but came across as rude, negative and arrogant. During our walk through he attempted to impress upon us that our recently built custom home had no more value than an older existing home or even a spec home. Not only were his remarks derogatory, inconsiderate and impersonal, but completely untrue and unprofessional. Not only did he make a bad impression regarding our property but he likely violated the code of ethics. He disclosed the neighbor's private information (his listing) regarding their short sale and their financal situation . He even took credit for their taking his advice to stop making payments to get the lenders attention. Ironically, with all of this, his verbal ?estimate? of what the house should list for was not all that far from what we we considering. Had he been more professional, ethical and considerate, we may have been able to come to some reasonable listing agreement. However, Curt Stinson clearly has no interest in his clients personally, their privacy or their feelings. We do not believe he has the appropriate people skills, or ethical beliefs, to handle either our real estate needs, or that of any other potential client. There are many other qualified agents who understand their fiduciary responsibility to their clients. Less ... More

My wife and I recently bought a beautiful brand new home and we credit Curt and the Stinson Team with making this process an enjoyable one! We can?t say enough about how available, professional and knowledgeable the entire team was. Curt, Matt, Jeanette, Marissa and the rest of the team worked together seamlessly with us to find the perfect home. Matt made time to show us properties at our convenience and always showed patience during the process. I will refer my family and friends to the Stinson Team. Less ... More

Based on a family member's recommendation, we worked with Curt to find and purchase our home almost 10 years ago. Several years ago, we began the process with Curt in selling our current home and purchasing another property. Circumstances, not having to do with Curt, caused us to change our mind in selling at that time. When we are ready to sell, we will again contact him to help in that process.

We've known Curt Stinson for about 8 months now. We have 2 underwater mortgages and our short sale turned out to be a difficult one for us. But for Curt a short sale is not a problem. This is the field where he feels right at home. He is not just a Realtor. He is someone you can trust. He has the experience and the knowledge to guide you through the web of bank procedures. Extremely successful salesman. He sold our house in less than a week twice! (We lost the first buyer after 5 months, so we had to sell our house again, just after Thanksgiving. Curt helped us to find another qualified buyer in less than a week. That was absolutely amazing! He generated a huge amount of interest.) He is also an excellent manager of his team. They communicate with each other in a very professional manner. Each one of their team knows his or her part precisely. Curt made himself available for us even in the evening when we were in a stressful situation. He always points us to the right direction when we get confused. He is straight forward that makes us feel protected from the unknown. We give him five stars because Curt will accomplish 120% of what other Realtors promise you. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
I would highly recommend Curt Stinson to anyone who might be looking to buy or sell a home in the Tucson area. My wife and I contacted Curt a little over a year ago when we were upside down in our mortgage and dealing with a greedy and uncaring mortgage company who was unwilling to help us. Curt and his staff were excellent and true professionals in every sense of the word. They were able to help us sell our other home and helped us find a home with a mortgage we could afford. My wife and I were so impressed with the service we had received that we referred our son to him as well. I lost my job in September 2012 but thanks to Curt the loss of income was not devastating and my wife and I are now retired. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
Our home was listed with Curt Stinson Realty for almost a year. They never once showed our home and never even put a sign up in our yard. We actually spoke with a couple of people that were being shown our home by other realtors who told us they had to call someone else to come see our home because Curt Stinson Realty would not return their calls. We asked to be removed from their listings and a year later we couldn't relist because they had put a hold on our listing. If you live in the Tucson area, they may work better for you. Apparently, we were too far away for them to want to bother with us. Less ... More
Response fromCurt Stinson
Our deepest apologies that we were not able to sell your home in Benson, nor drive the distance to show it. perhaps in hindsight finding a local agent would have best served your needs It is not standard practice to list any of our homes more than a year. Again, our apologies for your dissatisfaction -- we wish you well -- The Stinson team

Listed home, but didn't sell
Had a horrible experience with Curt. He overpriced my listing which ends up being a problem when people make you offers that get rejected only to have an accepted offer reduced to below other offers once an appraisal comes in nearly $100k lower than Curt set the price at. When it comes to marketing he actually argued that Open House showings were a waste of time. There were never flyers made as promised which was blamed on turnover in his office...he has a real "if I list it they will come" attitude. When I told him I wanted a different agent he stopped taking my calls and I had to contact his boss who refused to let me get another agent. Any decent agent will let an unhappy customer go but Curt insisted on getting about half what he would of made in commission to let me list it with another agent. If you are considering listing with him I would get a schedule for open houses, a time frame for brochures and anything that you agree needs to be done included in your agreement with him and include that failure to perform these duties will result in the contract being terminated that way you will not get held hostage if he doesn't do what was agreed to.

Listed home, but didn't sell
Mister Stinson came out to our house personally. He told us he would have no problem short selling our house. We had bought in 2006 and were very underwater, but when we contacted him we were current on our mortgage. He told us to miss a payment and that would speed things along. He had eight months before our bank finally foreclosed. In that time he and his staff did very little to let us know what was going on. Anytime we called his offices it seemed like we were getting the runaround. After getting the foreclosure postponed an extra month, we had an offer ready to close. They failed to get a second postponement and the home foreclosed. I would never recommend him or anyone in his office to anyone. Less ... More

Dear Sir or Madam, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We deeply regret that we were not able to obtain approval from the bank to accept the offer(s)s received on your home. Oftentimes, the homes are in such a poor financial state , that it is more advantageous for the lien holder(s) to take the property back rather than sell it for such a substantial loss. In addition, buyers may elect to cancel through the process. We wish you great success in your future Sincerely, the Stinson Team Less ... More

I recently had the privilege of working with Curt and his team during a very difficult time in my family's life which resulted in us having to short sale our home and put it on the market. These situations are never easy because they are so personal and finding a high-caliber realtor to accept the listing for your short sale makes it more difficult. The reason for this is because neither you or your Realtor are in control - the Lender is. The Realtor is taking on huge amounts of work often over long periods of time and an actual sale or paycheck is never promised. Here's what happened: Day One: Met Curt - very impressive, more than I expected even though my expectations were high. Prepared and extremely knowledgeable with regards to short sales - communicated the short sale process precisely as it occurred. I was moved by the way he proudly introduced his team and operation - I am always affected by that in decision making. We were out of there in 45 minutes and we knew clearly what to expect - which now that I think about it doesn't seem possible...but thats how it happened. Day Two and Three: Pictures of home taken, signs up and home placed on MLS. Post First Weekend on MLS: 5 valid offers were received on Monday morning. No kidding! Ryan, Jeannette and Erika (you will never forget their names simply because of the level of service they provide) take it from there and they back each other up - someone is always available to help you. They are like a well-oiled machine...little "mini-me Curt's". My Short Sale did not close for 4 months - but only because of my Lender. They all hung in there with me to the very end and never let me give up; it was grueling but only because of the negotiation process with the Lender. Who hangs in there for 4 months with no pay in today's world? Months of work? Curt Stinson's team does this. Seriously, call them. If you find this all hard to believe, I know, I do too - but again....it happened. By the way, in the end, it wasn't the end of the world. Less ... More

I would not have the fabulous home I have today if were not for Curt and his amazing team! It was a short sale and due to Curt's outstanding reputation, experience, and extensive network, he was able to have my offer accepted quickly as the selling realtor juimped at the opportunity to work with Curt. The short sale took less than 3 months! Curt and his team were there for me to answer every question and handle every new home buyer emotion I threw their way. Curt is knowledgable and knows how to navigate all things real estate! If you don't use Curt Stinson and his team, you just made your first homebuying mistake. Less ... More

We had to move out of state for work and needed to list our home as a short sale. We contacted the Stinson team and they were wonderful to work with. They handled everything with the listing of our home and dealt with the financing company professionally on our behalf. They made the process go so efficiently with their team of staff. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Dear Curt, I'm writing to let you know about our wonderful experience having worked with you and your exceptional team of professionals. Even though we had to short-sale our dream home, Jeanette, Ryan, and Erika made the transition look and feel flawless! Their expertise in handling the banks' questions and paperwork was outstanding and they were always prompt in returning our phone calls or emails. Every person on your team made us feel like we were his/her only clients---a rare quality in today's business culture. We were relieved that this process, from beginning to end, cost us absolutely nothing...and best of all---ten months later, we were able to purchase another home! My husband and I have already referred our friends and family to your business and will continue to do so in the future. Warmest Regards, Charlotte Estimado Curt, Le escribo para informarle sobre nuestra maravillosa experiencia en haber trabajado con usted y su equipo excepcional de profesionales. Apesar de que tuvimos que vender la casa de nuestros sueños (usando una "Venta Corta"), Jeanette, Ryan y Erika hicieron la transacción ¡suave y tranquila! Sus experiencias en el manejo de preguntas y trámites de los bancos fue sobresaliente. Además, su equipo siempre regresó nuestras llamadas telefónicas o mensajes de correo electrónico rapidamente. Cada persona en su equipo nos hizo sentir como que éramos sus únicos clientes ---una calidad poco común en la cultura de negocios de hoy. Nos sentímos aliviados de que este proceso, de principio a fin, nos costó absolutamente nada... y lo mejor de todo---diez meses después, ¡pudimos comprar otra casa! ! Utilizando la "venta corta," la hipoteca acepto una cantidad menos del saldo que se les debía. Mi esposo y yo hemos referido nuestros amigos y familiares a su negocio y seguiremos haciéndolo en el futuro. Cariñosamente, Familia Sanders Less ... More
