  -michaelbfranks, Client

"Craig was a real pleasure to work with. I reside 200+ miles from the home I was selling, which could have been a real nightmare situation for me, but, it wasn't because Craig made it all so easy by keeping me informed every step of the way. done, He helped with most of the details of what needed to be done and whom to contact, and, when another realtor was showing the house, he made a point of coming later to check that the lights were shut off, things were in order and that the house was locked. This gave me total piece of mind. He is unbelievably responsive when you contact him. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job for his clients!"

  -Helen Rupert, Client

"Craig services his clients at a level that surpasses all agents with whom I have ever worked. It was an especially difficult sale, as I was out of state, and he watched over the property in every way. He facilitated and assisted in all and every step to make sure the home was well presented and the sale closed on time. He is the best."
