Sold a home in 2014.
We contacted Craig over the phone to be our Realtor long-distance. We live in Maryland and the home for sale was in Michigan. Craig handled everything over the phone or by email/fax. The home sold immediately (2 days) and we closed in 30 days. It was the easiest home sale we have ever done and it was an estate sale on top of everything. Craig worked with our lawyer to ensure that all the paperwork was correct. Awesome experience and I would recommend him to anyone. GREAT JOB!!!!!

Thanks for the great write up! You were AWESOME to work with & since this property was so well maintained, it sold quickly for $20,000 over asking to beat out any competition. It was a pleasure working with you & the attorney. Very smooth process. =)

Sold a home in 2013.
Craig and his team helped me sell my home in a short sale situation when my original realtor contacted me to call it quits because he couldn't handle the process (even though he told me he was familiar with it and we had an offer in to the bank)

I put my faith in Craig and his team and in a manner of days they had my home relisted, info to the bank with the original person that had the offer and had the paperwork started. It was still a long process due to the bank but I never would have gotten through it without Craig and Lisa. Lisa really kept me on track with the paperwork and the multiple requests we had from the bank and without both of them I truely believe it would have taken even longer to close.

I would highly recomend Craig to anyone.

Thanks for the write up! It was a "longer than expected" approval process & the closing MUST have been scary for the buyer, but we made it happen despite ridiculous bank requests after everyone signed closing paperwork. What a roller-coaster! You came through to make it happen & I am glad you were able to. It was SUCH a pleasure working with you!

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $150K in Redford, MI.
Craig is one of the hardest working Realtors that I have ever dealt with. He sold my home quickly. So quickly that I didn't even have my new home picked out yet (No complaints here!!). He understands the market and what it takes to get the job done smoothly and without any worries on my end. I followed all of Craig's great advice which yielded excellent results!! I highly recommend Craig Bollerud.

Thanks for the write up! It was easy to sell a house that was so well kept & showed as excellent as your home did. Thanks for always staging your home so it showed it best! A home that shows well, sells well. I remember we had 2 offers within a couple days. I am glad I was able to help you sell so fast.

Bought a home in 2011.
Craig was a really nice guy to work with when my wife and I were looking for our second home. He always met us on time and always had the necessary knowledge of the particular home we were interested in looking at. We had looked at near 20 homes and at no time did he show any frustration towards that. It wasn't until we had raised our price limit that Craig himself had actually found our home for us. We have already recommended him once and would definitely refer him again.

You both were so awesome to work with! Thanks for the write up. I knew that house was perfect for you once I saw it before it was on the market. I am glad you jumped on it! We some some "interesting" houses. =)

Craig helped me find my dream home. He was agressive and didn't stop until he found what I was looking for. I would definately refer Craig to everyone. You would not be sorry.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in South Rockwood, MI.
This associate broker and relatively large real estate office took over 3 weeks to return 3 phone calls and 2 emails requests to get in contact (documented) with me (and I don't know how long for the bank).

I finally did get their attention back on this property through a written request for a release. The short sale buyers that lost out on this home told me that their calls weren't returned in a timely manner either. Very disappointing given the billboard for weekly short sale seminars and that they position themselves as short sale experts.

Short sales, by their very nature, can get very complicated and are time sensitive b. Unfortunately, this property had more than one complications and and Craig kept commenting in person and in writing that it was taking longer than he expected.

So, they either felt justified in ignoring this property for easier sales or their office was just too busy and/or mismanaged to not neglect phone calls, emails and properties.

I have to admit that I didn't respond to the bank's request to get a different agent/office right away. But, it wouldn't have made a difference because the written response to my second request for an unconditional release was: "Unfortunately, we do not give unconditional withdrawals."

So: Caveat venditor and Caveat emptor. Let the buyer and seller beware...

In good faith, I took the listing, despite deplorable conditions (mold, feral cats, personal items-floor to ceiling) in this 2001 canal-front home. My team & I diligently worked to successfully obtain short sale approval. A buyer was consummated, we obtained APPROVAL. The seller abruptly decided she WAS NOT going to work with these buyers & killed the deal. The bank had a property evaluation & informed me, drop price $25,000-basement flooded. Seller refused & DID list days before sheriff sale date. A second buyer was consummated. Since bank decided not to extend the sheriff sale again & it foreclosed, seller decided not to cooperate any further. She was furious at the bank for not extending just "one more time." I've NEVER seen a sheriff sale postponed over 12 times. They made every effort to work with this seller. I always HAVE BEEN & STILL AM committed to successfully closing this transaction. I am certain the seller had NO intention of EVER selling her house.

Sold a home in 2012.
I am writing this letter on behalf of the Craig Bollerud. Craig has been my real estate agent for the past three years. As an investor, Craig has been involved in several real estate transactions of mine. Craig is always very friendly and extremely business orientated but with a smile. He is always very friendly and respectful.

What really stands out with Craig is the way he conducts business. He provides great advice and is up front about his professional recommendations. Each transaction with Craig was easy. He walks you through the process and tells you what to expect. He got me to the closing table each time as promised even though these were transactions that most would not handle. I would highly recommend Craig for any real estate deal.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Newport, MI.
Craig listed our home in May. He relentlessly sought out ways to promote and sell the home, often incurring significant expenses. He was available in a timely manner always, and never lost his determination and zeal to make sure we were happy, and above all-that our house was sold. Even when another Realtor came in with prospective buyers, Craig spent hours doing her job to present information to them, comparable properties and explain why they really were getting a great home. He went over and above for us by convincing them and producing evidence-based facts on why they should buy our wonderful property. And in 6 months we had a home sale - at our price!..despite a slow market in the Detroit area!!! I have no doubt that if it had been any other Realtor, they may not have been as dedicated as Craig. He is the BEST!!!!
