"Our first Townhome purchase was way back in 06″ Craig found us what we needed at the time. As a growing family we called on Craig to find us a home as we were busting at the seems in our smaller Townhome. As expected, we knew we could sell the Townhome and with Craig’s steering we sold quickly for the highest price per sq. ft. ever in our development. While this was occurring, Craig was busy searching our requirements for a new home. He found a beautifully upgraded home in Westwood, Rancho Bernardo. We had our offer in, within hours of it being listed. With a clean, minimal requirement offer, it was accepted. Now we are delighted and comfortable in our NEW HOME! Craig is a pro and honestly a bit relentless in getting things accomplished. We’re grateful for all his hard work." - Mark and Brittney

"My first property purchase was downtown SD when the market had taken a severe price drop. It was crazy, short sales and foreclosures. It was a great opportunity to purchase a property that would be rare to see listed for sale today. After searching Craig found my exact needs, near Petco Park. We laughed when we saw it listed by an out of area agent who didn’t know the proper pricing. It was priced very low and brought literally 20+ offers, from many hopeful dreamers. Because of our diligence in searching, we knew what to offer and luckily grabbed it above all others. So, so happy to have won. Since then, I had Craig find and negotiate an extremely complicated transaction in the Hi – Rise next door. We finally were delighted to move in to our new larger condo at great price “again”! Craig quickly found us a perfect tenant and we signed along term lease. I’m a happy camper in downtown." - Ricardo

"As a renter for too long, I needed to buy a comfortable property in Rancho Bernardo to be near my children and grandchildren. Craig was referred to me through my daughters friend, Craig’s her father. When I met Craig I was so comfortable with him and knew from his living in the area for many years, we would find the right property. We looked at about 8 properties, it was a very hot market for Sellers. We found exactly what I was looking for. We wrote a strong offer, had it accepted and I’m still amazed that after acceptance. Craig was able to renegotiate the Seller down in price. I got exactly what I wanted, a ready to move in home in a great location at a super price..Knowing the market is critical when selecting a Realtor. Craig is a native who definitely knows his way around." -Maureen

"After purchasing a Downtown San Diego condo at the height of the market, I needed an agent to manage my property as a rental. I discovered Craig while downtown and engaged him about my long term plans for renting my property. For over 7 years, Craig did a magnificent job of finding me two quality tenants that respected my property as if it was their own. Any issue that needed attention was dealt with quickly and resolved with the capable vendors he uses. Once the market recovered, I decided to sell. Craig strongly suggested we stage the condo for a quick sale and at the highest price. In just over a weak we accomplished our goals. The ensuing escrow was smooth and Craig was on point to close and deliver the property to the new buyers. Love San Diego but will stay in Seattle…Thanks Craig." - Rod

"Craig’s and my children grew up together, we’ve known each other for over 30 years. Craig helped me sell my home in Rancho Penasquitos, while at the same time finding our larger Dream Home in Poway. You know the expression, “Doing business with friends and family.” Well, let me tell you, he was perfect in every way. Getting our home prepared to sell with all his guidance. The marketing, the huge Open House events, brought so many prospective buyers through. When we found our new home, we knew there were many interested buyers and offers. After reviewing the recent sales in the neighborhood. Craig strongly advised we come in a little over asking. Thank God we did, we wouldn’t have had a chance at having our offer selected. Thanks Craig, we’re not moving any time soon, love it here." - Stan and Debby
