Kurt Grosse ~ The Protector
Kurt Grosse Is Unique- The Best Las Vegas Realtor
Kurt Grosse, a Top-Producing Southern Nevada Realtor, uses his skills and knowledge to protect his clients. Before becoming a Realtor with his Realtor wife and now partner, Terri, he owned a Construction Engineering Firm.
One day Terri asked for his help with one of her clients, and then other Realtors in her office started calling for advice. Kurt enjoyed helping people and went to work with Terri. Within two years, they became a Century 21 “Top 1% of agents in the World” real estate team.
As their clients’ homes are built, Kurt monitors the construction every week. Videos and photographs are sent to clients to document what’s inside of the walls. Also when possible issues are found, the client and builder are notified. If you are relocating, Kurt and Terri are the real estate team you want.
Resale Home Buyer Representation
Kurt and Terri represent resale home buyers in a similar fashion. While viewing homes, they walk them with you looking for red flags in the construction. Do you want a Realtor who says “Look! That’s so pretty” or one who says “Look! Do you see that crack? That wall is bowed. A water leak occurred here, we’ll have to check if it was checked for mold.”
With 25-30 years of “Insider Information about builders and extensive construction and contract knowledge, Kurt and Terri give their clients every advantage. Kurt has become known as “The Protector,” because that’s what he does. They are both your offensive and defensive coordinators. With how quickly homes are built in Southern Nevada, their services are invaluable.
Realtors ~ Protectors
Kurt Grosse was raised in Great Falls, Montana, graduating from Montana Tech University in Butte. Settling in Las Vegas to be a building structural engineering manager in the mid-1980s, Kurt started working closely with the city’s largest home builders.
Subsequently, Kurt became a Nevada Professional Civil Engineer specializing in Wood-Framed Construction. That means that Kurt would tell the large Las Vegas Home builders how to build their houses, solve their construction problems, and design structural fixes for them.
After opening his successful consulting firm, KG Engineering, his firm and Nevada builders began thrivings. Five years later Kurt met his wife-to-be, Terri.
Real Estate Agent ~ Marketer
Terri Capodieci was at McCarran Airport in 1994 with her daughter when they met Kurt. Thankfully Kurt wanted to buy a home, which he did a couple of weeks later. Two years later, they were married.
In 1995, Terri asked Kurt to look at a foundation problem she noticed at a house her client wanted. That was when they realized how much Kurt’s skills were needed in the Las Vegas real estate market to protect home buyers.
Soon afterward, Kurt Grosse, Realtor, started working and learning as Terri Capodieci’s partner. Since the fit was so good, he switched to part-time engineering and full-time real estate within the year.
Kurt and Terri Look Out For Clients
Kurt Grosse taught Terri what signs are clues to larger problems in a house. Terri helps sellers stage their houses for sale, manages the office, and does many new-construction orientations with their buyers. Because of Terri’s marketing degree, their website is her job as well as personally marketing their many listings. Her education also keeps their social media fun and interesting.
Building products and technology change every year. Homes and building materials are no longer simple. See their New Construction Homes, New Construction Monitoring, and New Construction Inspections pages. The standard Board of Realtors contract has many errors and typos. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, they use all of their knowledge to protect you and your investment.
Living and working together every day for 25 years means Kurt and Terri make a great team. Hearing about business, construction, and sports every day for their entire lives, their daughters are both enterprising. Due to their exposure, they both started investing in real estate early in life.
Now grown and married, their daughters live in Northern California and New Jersey. The NJ daughter and her husband work with the Defense Department and USAF. Their other daughter and son-in-law work with a non-profit and with power company projects.
Doting on 4 small grandchildren is their favorite vacation destination or long weekend outing. Often giving them little Vegas Golden Knights and Raiders shirts, their grandkids are styling and regularly exploited in Social Media posts! When you see an adorable little person on their social media, it’ll probably be a grandchild.
Football Fans- Las Vegas Raiders
Terri, a native Californian, lived in Los Angeles for the 12 years that the Raiders were there. She talked about the Raiders moving to Vegas for years – about going to games and how much fun it will be.
When Terri and Kurt were offered the opportunity to sponsor RaiderLadies.com by Terri’s girlfriends, they jumped in with both feet. Becoming actively involved, Terri began working with them, and Kurt became the “Official Raider Ladies Sponsor.”
RaiderLadies.com is a good site- take a look! It’s an interesting blog/magazine for lady Raiders fans or anyone who likes football, Raiders’ history and stories. Visit RaiderLadies.com.
Buyer Representation By Kurt Grosse
Fast forward 25+ years and Kurt and Terri are still protecting home buyers, home sellers, and investors. Their goal remains to help their clients have their eyes wide open. New homes have never been built without issues. Having Kurt and Terri on your team will help you know that you will not get stuck with the lemon in the bunch.
To double protect every home buyer that they represent, for all of 2022, they gift their clients a New Construction Home Inspection when the home is complete. Inspections cover all systems of the home, including windows and energy-efficiency features.
The inspector checks the home with an infra-red heat detector, looks at insulation and trusses in the attic. The roof and exterior are also inspected. Most importantly, energy efficient windows and features are checked. This is just one more layer of buyer protection they provide.
Protecting Buyers and Sellers
Since structural warranties expire, repairs become the seller’s responsibility. How many people go into their attic, walk on their tile roof, or use an infrared gun to test their walls- no one. Until a new buyer comes along to buy your home.
Resale homes that were built years ago didn’t have the option of having a New Construction Home Inspection. Today’s statistics show that many costly mistakes are uncovered when a seller sells their home – after their builder warranty has ended. Catching mistakes during construction prevents the buyers from paying for them in the future.
Besides being New Construction Home Buyer Specialists, Kurt and Terri are top listing agents. If you want a home that isn’t on the MLS, let them know and they will find it for you. If you want to sell your home quickly, they probably have someone who wants it.
Kurt Grosse says, “Whether buying or selling, people are usually making the biggest investment they’ll ever make, they need someone on their team that cares and will try to protect them. We use everything we know to make sure that they are making a good investment – and a sound one.”
For 4 years during the financial recession, Kurt did appraisals and BPO’s for banks. Both Terri and Kurt became Home Retention Counselors helping people avoid foreclosure. If you are behind in your payments, call us, let’s strategize.
Working With Home Sellers
Working with their repeat and referral clients, both Terri and Kurt work with many sellers. As a result of reading and writing many buyer contracts, they counter-offer loophole clauses when representing sellers.
The standard Las Vegas Board of Realtors has many buyer out-clauses and even a terrible typo that can harm a seller. Contingency dates are tracked, and follow-up is done daily. With the litigious world that we live in, a home seller’s protection is imperative. See the Seller section in the menu bar above for more information.
Kurt will verify that you, as our seller, have your house priced correctly. He will walk the property with you and make suggestions for the best presentation. His goal is to get you – the seller- the most money possible.
Terri’s hobby is decorating, so decor and staging are addressed first with every listing. Clean and pretty homes sell for more money.
Terri’s specialty is marketing and advertising. Her passion is decorating and staging homes and even fixing up houses.
Sellers frequently brainstorm with her about how to make their homes sell faster for more money. Often just a few tweaks and suggestions make a huge difference. Their team actively markets their listings to their own clients first. This creates a win-win for everyone! Sellers like agents with buyers for a reason…
