Todd Kortright - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We recently sold our home at 507 Lafayette Ave, Ravenna, Ohio.

Our listing agent / realtor, Todd Kortright, was involved in the sales process from day one. After we discussed our wishes and expectations with Todd, he did some research and came up with a suggested price point. After some discussion, Todd is a willing listener, we arrived at a satisfactory listing price. Todd spent time preparing the ad with proper language and photos. He even arranged for drone taken arial photos. Literally within hours of listing the property we had a couple of offers that were over the list price. The following day we had 5-6 more offers. Todd handled all the details with potential buyers’ realtors. We ultimately selected buyers from the first day. So we pretty much sold the property within the first 5 hours of listing it. Following the preparation of the purchase agreement and the inspection, we learned that we needed some minor roof repair and a new survey to satisfy the folks at the county tax map department. Todd jumped in and handled this as well, meeting both the roofer and surveyor at the house to assure prompt compliance with the necessary work. Additionally, Todd communicated with the buyers bank and appraiser to ensure a good result for us. Susan and I were extremely impressed by Todd and his efforts on our behalf in the sale of our house of 37 years. Thanks to Todd this sale could not have gone easier or smoother for us. Thanks Todd

"Todd Kortright was highly recommended to us by our next door neighbor and trusted friend. He knew Todd through his participation as a coach in various youth athletic programs in which their children jointly participated. When we first met Todd to discuss the sale of our home he had already done his homework. He quickly identified the factors influencing home values in the area and clearly outlined the potential challenges associated with the local market, which was/is characterized by highly variable niches in a semi-rural/suburban community. This challenge was compounded by an especially low real estate turnover in our tiny but highly desirable neighborhood, as there were no comparable properties to establish value. Nonetheless, Todd put together the facts and provided keen insight into how we could put together a sales strategy that should be a win-win for both us and prospective buyers. In this regard, Todd did a great job presenting our home to the market using all the latest internet and other marketing tools and as a result we had multiple offers above the asking price within days. However, the offer we accepted was contingent upon the house's appraisal being consistent with the offer. This is where the games really began in earnest with appraisers/banks gaming the area and using property comps that were not actually comps. And, because Todd really understands the various strategies, tactics and tricks agents, banks, and other brokers play to give themselves an edge (ie, unfair advantage), he was not bothered or surprised when the mischief started. In fact, he was well prepared with a variety of creative solutions and strategies to keep these folks honest. This is exactly what Todd suggested might happen given the high variability of the local property values. Todd patiently worked through all the posturing and gamesmanship that was being played by the buyer’s agents, appraisers (they sent in several) and bank. He provided multiple solutions to facilitate the sale of our home without compromising our principles, in essence calling the bluffs of these actors. Despite real estate chaos being on full display during all this, Todd didn't let this phase him. Moreover, he provided us with a wealth of information and reassurances that we were on the right track and that he could close the deal despite the ongoing shenanigans. It was clear he was well prepared for all of this given his many years of real estate experience in Arizona and Ohio. Real estate transactions can be some of the most stressful events in life, but Todd made it seem like a piece of cake. Thanks to Todd, we were able to circumvent the games, get a very fair price, finalize the sale of our home with the buyers tickled that their agents didn’t screw up the deal. Todd was the glue that held it all together. Just as important to us was the fact that Todd fully comprehended that we were not just selling our home, but we were also representing our neighbors, many of whom we had grown very close to in our time there. Todd considered them his neighbors too! Thus, we highly recommend Todd without reservation and consider ourselves lucky to have gained a dear friend in the process!"

"My wife and I started looking to move from Ohio to Arizona back in November of 2011 and had the pleasure of working with Todd. He was nothing short oh phenomenal. We had looked at dozens of houses on 2 separate trips to Arizona, one of which was on less then 1 days notice, and he made himself available to us without hesitation. Best of all he gave us an HONEST opinion on his thoughts on the house, asking price, location etc. Not being from the local area that information was invaluable. We put a bid in on our current house in Dec 2011, we closed at the end of Sept 2012 and Todd followed up with us almost weekly. Had a great experience working with Todd and I look forward to doing it again in the future!"

"It was by accident that we met Todd Kortright and it was one of the best accidents that we have had. We were a first time homebuyers in the US, it was a bit stressful not to mention scary but from the beginning Todd was there to guide us through the process. Todd went above and beyond representing us. He ensured all our issues were promptly and properly addressed. Every aspect of the purchase was explained in layman’s terms and Todd ensured that both of us were happy with the explanations before closing on the deal. We would highly recommend Todd as an agent, his time patience and personal effort went far beyond the purchasing of a home. His after sales care has also been exceptional, his assistance and tireless efforts in obtaining the right information from everything right down to which service providers were available in the area, helped us maker this purchase as smooth as possible. It is without hesitation that we would recommend Todd, to anyone in the market for both purchasing and selling."

"My wife and I had to move out of state quickly and Todd was with us each step of the way! Todd did an incredible job for us!!! His strategies for marketing our house was just totally superb! The listing service he selected did a beautiful job! The photos they took were top notch and got the word out fast! We had bids coming in shortly after which was wonderful! Once an offer was accepted, we decided to move out-of-state. Todd went above and beyond and checked in on the property. It was just an absolute perfect transaction all around! We officially sold our home and are totally ecstatic!

At first we were thinking about renting our property. Todd was a tremendous support in helping us understand how the rental and property management process works. It's awesome that he can provide he can both rent services (including property management) or sell your house which really adds for tremendous flexibility!

Like the previous reviewer mentioned, is always available and is very supportive!

Many thanks Todd for everything! This experience has truly been a blessing!!"

"Just wanted to take a moment and express my great experience dealing with Todd on selling our home. This was the first time we have ever sold a home and really had little information on the process especially since our home had solar and the first two people we reached out to for questions, one turned us down for having solar and the second kept telling we would need to find people interested in solar. Todd not only help explain the process but also had points of contacts that helped us at different stages throughout. The contact from solar not only help explain the process for selling it on our house but got the ball rolling and helped us get solar on our new home. Todd took time explained what we needed to do with the home to get what we were looking for in selling it, we really thought we needed to do more but we listen to him and got what we wanted in the end. For me the best parts of the whole experience was Todd’s knowledge of everything, having points of contacts that could come in and do minor things we needed done and most importantly the follow up on everything and the quick responses on questions we had. We never felt any disconnect that you seem to get with most people you deal with, he was always available and prompt on getting us the information we needed. If you are looking for a reliable, knowledgeable person who is honest and trust worthy and for us we consider a friend of our family reach out and contact Todd, you’ll be happy you did."

"I can honestly say that I am a bit difficult to work with. I don't trust most real estate agents, but Todd was an exception. He was patient with my wife and I. He kept us informed and talked me off the ledge when I was frustrated with some of the other parties throughout the transaction. Additionally he has a good sense of humor which is important in this business. Thanks Todd!"

"I was referred to Todd by some friends who utilized his services. From the start he was engaged and had a good knowledge of the area we were interested in. He was able to weed out residences that did not meet our requirements, saving us all a lot of time. He was good at getting back to us with one exception when he was out of the state. I believe his knowledge of the market and back and forth with the sellers agent saved us several thousand dollars. Overerall we were very pleased with Todd and his representatio of this very important transaction on our behalf."

"Todd assisted my family and I with the purchase of a new home in Cave Creek. The home we purchased was new construction and over an hour away from Todd's office. His knowledge of the home builders in Arizona was very helpful in our search. He never hesitated to drive the hour + to help with our search. He arranged for a home inspector to accompany us on the various walk throughs the builder conducted. Todd was very helpful at the final walk with the builder pointing out potential issues I may have missed. Todd worked hand in hand with the builder every step of the way to make a very intimidating process enjoyable and fulfilling. I absolutely recommend Todd and Amanda for any of your real estate needs."

"Todd and the Kortright Group handled the sale of my home in Estrella Mountain Ranch. It was a complicated process and my husband and I felt fortunate to have Todd's expertise to guide us. His wife, Amanda, is an agent as well; she provided invaluable staging advice as we prepared to put our home on the market. We are grateful to have worked with Todd and the Kortright Group."
