“Marcela and I have just finished working with Courtney on selling our Fort Point condo. We had an outstanding experience. An excellent CMA, great marketing, regular communication and frank and open feedback throughout the sale process. Did I also mention we were able to get our desired price? Yep. We got that too.
Over the years we’ve interacted with many Realtors and Courtney was, by far, the best one of all. His attention to detail, excellent communications skills and overall professionalism, made selling our property a smooth experience. Since we were in San Francisco, Courtney went out of his way to make sure the sell process finished smoothly. This was an all-around fabulous experience.
Feel free to share this testimonial on your website and do not hesitate to reach out if we can help Courtney in any way.”

“Courtney has been an outstanding agent who helped us not only buy, but also sell our first home. He has given us great advice on the market - realistic and also supportive towards our suggestions. He works equally hard at the beginning of the process, gathering all relevant data to make well-informed decisions, throughout and until the very end. He's well-organized, pays great attention to detail, punctual, respectful, and reliable. We highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling property in a pleasant and successful environment.”

“We interviewed three Realtors for the sale of our home, hired Courtney and never looked back. While moves invariably carry some degree of stress (this was our second cross-country), working with Courtney greatly reduced it. Some standouts:
• No-nonsense, straightforward approach: gets things done without bothering with superfluous emails, etc.
• Identifies and takes steps to get you top dollar for your home, including leveraging a team (handyman, electricians, plumbers, etc.) to ensure your home shows at its highest potential come market launch.
• Great grasp and leadership of the home selling/buying process.
• Proactive communicator: keeps on top of things so client isn't left wondering where something stands or having to chase things down.
• Well-versed in relocations such as ours.
Due to his many strengths, we would not think twice about recommending him as a Realtor.”

"I wanted to thank you one more time for finding my family and I this beautiful house. I know that I would not have had the patience or determination without your help. I feel especially blessed this Christmas to have such a comfortable home in a great little neighborhood! Merry Christmas to you and your family.”

"We bought recently and our Realtor, Courtney Trautman, was excellent. We bought in Brookline and had to kiss quite a few frogs before we found our place! He was very good-humored throughout the whole process and he has a great eye - he found the place we ended up buying. He has great relationships with other Realtors so was able to get us in early to see a few places. He was also a big help dealing with the sellers and sorted out a number of issues for us even after the sale had gone through."
