Curtis has a good working knowledge of what properties are available and their value. He worked very diligently to offer us a broad range of properties when we purchased a secondary residence in Oceanside.
Because we were impressed with his ability we used him as our listing agent to sell one of our rental properties in Temecula. We were extremely pleased with his involvement in that transaction.Response from Curtis Knopp
I'll be your Realtor for life in exchange for the occasional invite to that new beach house of yours ; )
- Fred Heymann
We had specific things we wanted in a house. Curtis found exactly what we wanted and was more than patient with us. I would recommend his services anytime.Response from Curtis Knopp
Glad we got the results you wanted Heymann family. Thanks for the recommendation!
- Gino Tinucci
Curtis was the right man for the job when it came to buying our dream home. He was patient with us, but knew when to nudge us to come together (my wife and I), as we sometimes had differing opinions about what we wanted (size, price, location, features...) Not only did he present to us the best solutions to our requests (there were many), he also had the knowledge to help us understand our buying power in terms of projects after the fact vs getting them in the existing homes we were considering.
He really made us realize the value in buying a home and purchasing power, and when we selected our 3 favorites, he created a business plan showing costs after we moved in on each to make each option our dream home. In the end we raised our budget as there was so much buying power with the low interest rates than buying more of a fixer upper. We are so glad we did, as we soon became pregnant and our cash was spend on many baby gifts and daycare.
We could not be happier and have given many referrals to Curtis and Knopp Coastal Realty. Our fiends have all turned into happy clients and friendships have been created with Curtis and his family.Response from Curtis Knopp
Man, thank you for that... The circle of life summed up in several different ways right there!! Congrats on the ever-growing family and on owning in such a great area to raise a family in North County SD.
Curtis did whatever it took for us to get our dream home. He was a terrific negotiator, was patient with us during the entire process, answered all our questions timely, and even convinced the listing agent to reduce her commission slightly to help us get into the house.
He's a great guy who knows the local market very well and works very well with other agents. We highly recommend him and trust him completely. He genuinely cares for all his clients.Response from Curtis Knopp
Always seem to catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. LOVE to hear how much the Davidson clan is loving their home.
- Mr. and Mrs. Chavez
My wife and I relocated from the Philadelphia area and were initially utilizing another real estate agent. I spent two day with this agent and concluded we were not seeing properties that matched our needs. We became very discouraged that we would not find a home in SD. We decided to contact another agent and we found Curtis. The rest is history.. We were absolutely delighted with the service and approach Curtis took with us.
My wife and I were very impressed with not only his knowledge of the real estate market, but also with his professional approach and style. Curtis is very honest and always calm.. He did a great job of understanding our needs. We found our home relatively quickly and have been delighted with the choice.
Curtis has become a trusted friend and advisor. I highly recommend Curtis to anyone requiring real estate assistance in north county.Response from Curtis Knopp
Mr and Mrs Chavez: Confucius says -- "By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart." One must experience some sour in life to fully enjoy the sweet I say. Thank you for finding me!!!

Curtis has helped us through the process of two home purchases now, and our family is so grateful for all of his efforts throughout the process. His hard work ensured that in a competitive market, we were able to secure our dream home. Curtis went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable throughout the entire home purchasing process. He was patient and listened to our needs, while also offering a valued opinion and a voice of reason when needed, without trying to dictate what our needs were. His expertise within all aspects of real estate, and in the area of San Diego and North County San Diego, gave us the confidence we needed to make sure we were making the investment that was right for us.
Curtis was always receptive and professional, but also welcoming and friendly- the perfect balance for what we were looking for as a trusted advisor during what can be a very stressful time. The countless deadlines, paperwork, and legal verbiage that can overwhelm the home buying process was managed flawlessly by Curtis- he stayed ahead of all the deadlines, made sure paperwork was taken care of, and always explained the legal terms in a way in which we could understand.
When certain deadlines were needed to be pushed along, Curtis was not afraid to pick up the phone and send e-mails to make sure all of our needs were always being met. Curtis helped us find and purchase our first home together. As our family and priorities grew, Curtis was there to help us sell our first home and helped us find a home for our growing family. We couldn't be happier with the customer that we received and continue to receive with Curtis.Response from Curtis Knopp
Love you Harmons!
- Mike Hoslar
Curtis was extremely helpful from the very beginning. He helped us narrow and focus our search on the neighborhoods that best aligned with what was important to us which was extremely helpful given all the different options that San Diego offers. He also provided valuable insight on things to factor in when considering the future resale value of the property.
Curtis simplified the home buying process, and was always available to answer any questions we had along the way. I would definitely work with him again, and will gladly recommend him to friends and family.Response from Curtis Knopp
I was a first-time home buyer once myself and I know what additional information and direction I would have loved to have at the time. I'm always available -- before, during, and AFTER a sale. Thanks Mike!
- Leilani Blose
Curtis has been the BEST real estate agent we could have wished for while both buying a house in 2008 and selling it in 2015. He is extremely knowledgeable about the whole process and was helpful in making both big and small decisions along the way. He is a genuinely upright and friendly guy that we now call a friend. There aren't many people that could say their buying and selling process was relatively stress free and this was in large due to Curtis' knowledge, quick responsiveness, honesty, and expertise.
Curtis has gone above and beyond on MANY occasions. He has answered calls/texts/emails immediately at inopportune times throughout the time we've known him, was able to negotiate the sell of a foreclosure to us rather than investors who made a cash offer higher than our offer which required a loan, helped get us settled into our new home, knows the local area and helpful/reliable contacts, stopped by to say hello numerous times, helped me sell my car while my husband was deployed, helped clean our pool deck when we were away house hunting (a duck took up residence while we were trying to sell our home and were away from the area), and even offered to help us move out of our house if our moving arrangements weren't quick enough to accommodate our selling date.
What other agent would do that for you? We have had the privilege of being able to pass along this gem of a real estate agent to many friends/colleagues whom have had similar positive experiences. We wish we could have taken him along with us when we purchased our current home.Response from Curtis Knopp
Leilani and Matt: You guys are the reason why I'm in this business. Being able to make such a positive impact in such great people's lives is the best feeling in the world.
- Darren Marshall
Extremely helpful and knew his stuff, top to bottom! Accessible via email and text pretty much 24 hrs a day, and always responsive. After selling 4 other houses, this was the top agent experience for us. If you are looking for a realistic and genuine agent, who will get to know you and your needs prior to listing your home, then Curtis is the man!Response from Curtis Knopp
I LOVED EVERY PART OF SELLING YOUR HOME DARREN, AND THAT'S A GENUINE REMARK.
Curtis is awesome. He has helped us buy and sell and we could not be happier with his services. We not only sold our house very quickly, but he helped us get the most we could for our house.Response from Curtis Knopp
Thanks Karen. I love seeing clients walk with a nice, tax-free gain like yours! You guys did the work on that remodel, I just got to display it.
Best Real Estate Agent hands down! Curtis helped us buy and sell our house in Oceanside. After several months of searching houses online and contacting agent after agent that would send us every house for sale on MLS, Curtis only sent us 5 houses he thought best fit our wants and needs, and nailed 3 of 5 houses we really liked online. That's when we knew he was the agent for us.
Curtis is super patient and thorough, extremely knowledgeable and resourceful, has the heart of a teacher, and truly has your best interest at hand. I would recommend Curtis to any family, friend, or acquaintance, thanks for everything Curtis.
Reponse from Curtis Knopp
Yadira and Christian: The pleasure was all mine! Thanks for trusting me enough to lean on me during the process!!
We've bought and sold nine homes over our lives, and by far, Curtis was the best realtor we've had. He's knowledgeable, energetic, and always available. In the two transactions he did for us, he went the extra mile to make sure everything got done, even what might have been the other agent's job. We sold our house above asking price and found exactly the house we wanted.
Curtis worked his magic several times to make issues go away, and was very helpful in getting loan and escrow processes to close. We recommend Curtis without hesitation.
Response from Curtis Knopp
Wow. Thank you Dennis and Barb. That just made my evening reading this. 9 homes is a lot!
We were concerned about selling our CA home while living on the other side of the country-- Curtis made the process VERY easy and straightforward for us! He attended to every detail in a timely and professional manner, and we were 100% comfortable with him representing us every step of the way. Highly recommend.
Thanks for allowing me to navigate that ship the entire way for you Shaffer family!!
- Bklyn lt
Curtis was absolutely amazing. I decided to list my property at the worst time (2 weeks before Christmas) and I was bracing for a beating in the market. Curtis expertly navigated me through the pros and cons of listing at this time of year and made me feel confident about the process. In the end, Curtis had the place listed, shown and sold within 8 days. 8 DAYS RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!!!
In addition to his professional skills, Curtis was a tremendous help to me personally as I was moving across country and had just had a baby. Curtis would attend all of the appointments and contractual obligations on my behalf as I had my hands full with the move and the new baby and called me every night to give me the details and schedule going forward.
Curtis is an honest, hard working and genuinely great guy who I would (and will continue to for investment purposes) recommend to any and everyone I know. Thanks Curtis.
Thanks Brian. I'm ALWAYS here, whether it be Christmas time or the 4th of July.
If you are simply looking for a realtor to help with the sell of a home or property, they are easy enough to find. However, if you are looking for a partner to help with the sell of an existing home or property, then Curtis Knopp is the perfect person to help get you through the process.
I was impressed from day one with the way that Curtis took the time to listen to my concerns about this process and he offered suggestions that were tailored to my situation. Curtis was always available whenever I needed him and he would always follow up to make certain that whatever I requested was taken care of.
Like me, Curtis is detail oriented. As a very detail oriented person I can be somewhat tough to please. But Curtis picked on that from our very first meeting and he was either stride for stride with me or one step ahead.
In short, I would recommend Curtis Knopp to anyone looking for a partner to help guide them through what can be a very challenging time in their lives.
IT IS ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS!!! Thanks Wayne. Happy I could take out the stress for you in the sale. And I love how detail oriented you are by the way.
- Chris C7856
Curtis is by far one of the best real estate agents I have worked with or observed working. He has a commanding knowledge of the San Diego real estate market and also provided insight into the overall economic conditions in a way that was focused, understandable, and genuine.
From the moment we had our first conversation, Curtis was always respectful and responsive to every inquiry I had, despite my ignorance as a first time home buyer. When I went to purchase another property a few years down the road in another area of California, I found myself wishing that the real estate agent I was working with could be more like Curtis. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and competent, Curtis is precisely the type of person you hope to work with in a real estate transaction. I hope that I can return to San Diego again and work with him in the future.
Response from Curtis Knopp
Come on back any time Chris, I'd love that.... Don't wait too long, San Diego real estate market is hot!!
- Bought a Townhouse home in Carmel Valley
We had an unusual situation in buying a home as we had to find a location suitable for work when we went in opposite directions. Curtis mapped out for us a circle and only looked at homes in this area. He was extremely patient with the process because of our needs. He never pressured us and he spent an inordinate amount of time showing homes over a 7-month period.
When we finally found a home we liked and could afford, he went into action. Over the course of a month he was talking with the seller's real estate agent..sending in offers...working with us to look at our budget...answering thousands of questions and most importantly, holding our hand through this process every step of the way. There was never a question of his interest and he never pressured us to purchase the home during the negotiations. When the owner accepted the offer..he was very difficult to work with..but again, Curtis led the way and dealt with constant changes and strange behavior of the seller.
Again, he took the lead and never let things get out of hand. He saved the sale a few times over the course of escrow. All in all we were very pleased with his effort for us. There is no question about whom we would use for a sale or a purchase of a home.
Rich: I loved seeing this one through to the very end for you guys!!
- Christopher E.
Curtis is professional, experienced and dedicated to making the process of buying a house satisfying and smooth. He will take the time to get to know you and will work tirelessly to find you the right house. I cannot recommend him more highly.
We have worked with Curtis on both the sale and purchase of two homes in Carlsbad over the past 3 years and really enjoyed working with him both times.
Working with Curtis on a home purchase you will quickly realize that he is extremely knowledgeable about the North County SD area; tell him what you're looking for and he'll find it. He is able to quickly understand your tastes, price-point, location fit, etc. while weeding out all non-contenders for you.
Additionally, working with Curtis on a home sale was also a great experience. He was able to provide great advice and guidance throughout the process while obtaining a terrific value on our sale and minimizing costs.
- Lindsay Duffey
Needless to say our transaction was a tough one but Curtis took us by the hand and made it an absolutely seamless transaction! He knows what he is doing and he knows how to communicate. The personal touch is lost on so many business transaction now a days but Curtis is truly a friend and He is our Realtor for Life!
- Nelu Razai
Curtis helped us sell our first home last summer and made it a pleasant, stress free experience. I work from home and we have 3 kids (one of them being a newborn at the time). and were worried about how disruptive the whole process would be to our family. Curtis was very mindful in making sure our home was still comfortable for our family while it was on the market. He also assured us showings would be set up with a good amount of notice as well as grouped as closely together as possible. Instead of having us take the time to de-clutter and rearrange our whole house to make it "showable" like other agents had suggested, he shared certain areas it would be most beneficial to put our energy into.. He also did a lot of behind the scenes marketing to get the word out about our home before it was even listed.
Curtis arranged an open house for our first day on the market. Our open house was a huge success thanks to all his efforts and we had multiple offers by the end of the day. We sold our home after the first open house at above asking price. Other agents we had spoken to prior to Curtis had suggested a lower listing price, so we were beyond amazed that we were actually able to get above his higher suggested listing price. To our surprise, Curtis made our first home selling experience a quick and painless one. We will definitely continue to recommend Curtis to our friends and family as well as use him for our future real estate needs.
- Sold a Condo home in Pacific Beach
Curtis Knopp is a true real estate professional! Not only did he manage a condo unit for me finding solid tenants again and again, when it came time to sell the unit he was able to navigate a very complicated sale. To say he went above and beyond is an understatement. I do not think the sale would have happened without Curtis as my agent. Frankly the unit was part of a mismanaged condo association. He walked me and the buyer/buyer agent through hurdles at the association and made it happen. Throughout the process, he was upbeat and tenacious. If you are looking for someone to represent you for buying or selling your home, Curtis will always have your best interest at heart.
- Bobby S.
Curtis helped my wife and I buy our first home in Pacific Beach San Diego which happened to be a short sale condo. He helped us through the whole process and communicated everything from the initial loan qualify process to miraculously getting the home FHA approved in a lower than usual home owner occupancy HOA.
Through no fault of Curtis', my lender took so long to close on our loan that our home got foreclosed on and went back on the market! Curtis got us in touch w a new lender he has great experience w and somehow got the bank that foreclosed on the house to sell to us instead of other buyers. Curtis made it happen in a miracle transaction! We ended up paying less for our house and got a better APR. And if that wasn't enough he helped us w the renovations after we moved in! CURTIS YOU ROCK!!!!! THANKS A MILLION! WE NOW OWN IN PARADISE THANKS TO YOU! CHEERS!
- Jim and Maureen
A longtime friend of my daughter-in-law recommended Curtis. We live in the Bay area and we wanted to buy a condo for our frequent visits to Southern California. Curtis was great! He listened when we described what we wanted. He really worked hard and was prompt to answer any questions we had. He found the perfect condo and worked quickly to make the deal and close escrow. We had a great experience. He even helped us move in... Curtis is awesome!
Curtis was very professional and down to earth which was important to us since buying a house can be intimidating. He helped us understand what steps needed to be taken during the entire process from requesting a loan all the way through the close of escrow and then some.
He really cared for our family on a personal level and until this day we keep in contact with him. He was very honest, loyal and giving of his time and knowledge when helping us choose the perfect home. He went above and beyond for us to be happy with our purchase and fully understand the house purchasing process which can be daunting at times. We are very thankful to have found such a great agent that took amazing care of us.
- Ann Winthrop
Curtis has helped us with all of our real estate needs related to this property. When it was a rental he identified good renters, managed the financials and ensured that the property was well-maintained. When we decided to sell this property, he found a qualified buyer quickly and negotiated a sales price and closing that was acceptable to both parties. I highly recommend Curtis for your real estate needs in the San Diego area.
- Nu Walsh
Apart from selling the home, he also managed it as a rental for three years prior. I plan on using him in the future for all of my real estate needs in the area, as he is knowledgeable, efficient and a pleasure to do business with.

There are many unsubstantiated theories about what is happening with home prices. From those who are worried that prices are falling (data shows this is untrue), to those who are concerned that prices are again approaching boom peaks because of “irrational exuberance” (this is also untrue as prices are not at peak levels when they are adjusted for inflation), there […]
