Clients are saying:
"Craig Faust has been my Broker 3 times since 2016. He is also the Broker-of-Choice for my daughter and my sister. Craig is knowledgeable about the real estate market, and he is extremely thorough. I would not hesitate to use Craig in the future."
""Craig worked with us both in the sale of our condo and in the purchase of our new home. I would absolutely recommend Craig for both ends of experience. Craig is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Logan Square neighborhood. Heck, he could run for alderman. He has a keen eye for detail both in house shopping and in negotiation, and as an extremely upfront and straightforward attitude that serves his clients well in just getting things done. I would like to say that both of our transactions were entirely seamless, but honestly, our sale did hit some hiccups on account of the buyers (all things totally outside our and Craig's control). Craig led us through the peril with a well-calibrated compass of real estate success, and even when things seemed hopeless, told us what we needed to do to complete the sale to our satisfaction. Highly recommended, for couples or families looking for an awesome house in Logan Square especially.""
"Terrific ! Knows his business. Explained details clearly, straightforward, kept in touch. Our condo sale went much more smoothly than I could have expected."
"This is the second Logan Square property I have purchased with Craig's assistance and guidance. He is always looking for great opportunities and has found two wonderful properties for me. He has the vision to see what a property can be with a few enhancements. I do confess that Craig is my son but he is also an outstanding broker."
"Craig Faust was invaluable in guiding my wife and me through the purchase of our house. He helped us find the perfect house for our family. As first time buyers we were obviously new to the whole experience and as such had a myriad of qoestions that Craig took the time to answer and explain easily and thoroughly. His experience also helped allay and ease any unfounded fears or concerns we had during all the steps of offers, bids, closing and so forth. I cannot imagine where we would be without his help."
