Clients are saying:
"We were looking to sell our SFH in Logan Square and wanted someone with knowledge of and past sales experience in the neighborhood. Craig walked us through prior listings and sales he had in the neighborhood and how he would list our place using similar strategies with our place. Based on his overall experience we moved forward with him for our listing. The listing process was seamless and he helped us stage our home for the best possible look for showings. We had follow up meetings to discuss activity and agent feedback and in the end, he was able to negotiate the best price for our home. We could not have been happier with the overall experience Craig provided us and would definitely recommended him."
"Craig helped us find our dream home. We were first time buyers and presented a set of challenging parameters to Craig. Due to Craig's deep knowledge and understanding of the Logan Square market he was able to get us in a position to make an early offer on a property of interest. He then helped us negotiate with the seller and we had a smooth and quick closing. Craig provided an immense amount of value by patiently educating us on the neighborhoods and buying process. Also, he helped us tremendously with the evaluation of homes for their true potential (beyond the curb appeal). This led us to finding a home which we felt provided tremendous value and one that we do not hope to leave."
"Craig knows every aspect of the business. He is responsive and very professional and helpful at all times. He works hard for his clients. We will work with him again and highly recommend his services."
"If you want place in Logan Square, you need Craig! His knowledge of that neighborhood and the surrounding ones is impeccable. His experience with renovations helped us to make good decisions about what we could handle and not handle in a property. For new home-buyers, that kind of knowledge is priceless. He helped us find a great spot for our family and continues to check in on how we are doing. We value his advice and will definitely use him again if we ever move!"
"LOVED working with Craig! He was beyond patient and flexible with showing us homes. Initiating the idea of buying a home was nerve racking, but Craig made it such a breeze. Felt so comfortable with Craig in his knowledge and ability to find us our forever home! I highly recommend Craig and if for some reason we decide to buy again, hands down, we will be calling Craig."
