Craig was extremely attentive and responsive. His knowledge of construction was very valuable in helping to evaluate and compare homes quickly and efficiently. The home we purchased received multiple offers and Craig's experience strategically positioned our offer to be accepted. The escrow and closing process went smoothly and on time. With his advice and negotiation skills, we received all of the credits we asked for from the seller.

Sold a home in 2014 in Noe Valley, San Francisco, CA 94131.

Thanks to Craig’s expertise, we sold our condo and bought a new house in only 6 ½ weeks! He leveraged his knowledge and experience of the market to put ourselves in the best position possible, first as sellers and then as buyers. Throughout the whole process, Craig was always available to answer questions, help us analyze pros and cons of each potential property and served as a great navigator through the complex maze of the San Francisco market. He also was instrumental in helping complete both transactions under a tight deadline. Awesome is an overused term, but there is not a better word to describe his real estate skills. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone and will definitely reach out to him again for our future real estate needs.

Bought a home in 2014 in Mission, San Francisco, CA 94110.

Craig was great and stood with us through a long and arduous process. He was patient and never tried to push us while giving us good guidance and advice. His knowledge of different aspects os potential upgrades to properties was very insightful and helpful when evaluating properties.

His dedication and availability at any time needed was above what we could have asked for and helped in the final purchase.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $1.75M in Marina, San Francisco, CA.

SOLD! I have to say that Craig and team made the process of selling our SF condo pretty painless. Craig showed up with his entire team: designer/stager, contractor and mover. While we talked with Craig the mover was busy with his end, the designer was thinking about staging and talking with the contractor about the work that need to be done. It was a one stop operation which made the process as easy as it could get. Craig asked that we trust him by giving him the keys and staying out of the way. We did just that and even went on a 2 week vacation during the construction phase. When we returned the For Sale sign went up and the rest is history. Craig knows his business, is professional, is a good guy and delivers.

Bought a home in 2014.

Craig was extremely proactive in helping us find a new home in a very competitive market. He made sure that the home we got was right for us, and worked us cleanly through the buying process.

Working with Craig was a good experience, and I would recommend him to others looking for homes in the SF area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in San Rafael, CA.

Craig Ackerman represented me as my realtor for the sale of my mother's home in San Rafael, CA. It was a difficult sale for many reasons. Craig was hired on December 6, 2013. The sale of the house was completed on February 4, 2014. A good portion of this work happened during the Christmas holidays. Not many realtors could have done this. Craig completed the process with professionalism, competence and courtesy. I feel fortunate that we found him. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a real estate broker particularly if it looks like it will be a legally complex process.

Sold a home in 2005.

I have used Craig's services at least 3 times in the last twelve years (buys and sells in San Francisco). He is THE guy to prepare a property for sale and get the most out of that sale. His expertise covers lending, construction/rehab, staging, pricing, negotiating, and his wonderful "silver-tongued devilishness". There is not a better qualified Realtor around!

Sold a Other home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Eureka Valley - Dolores Heights - Castro, San Francisco, CA.

Craig is a very personal professional, knowledgeable in both contruction and real estate, which paid off in strategically targeting my customer niche, getting maximum exposure, and finding the buyer that exceeded my target price. It was initially an adjustment for me to go with his approach and do a thorough job making repairs and staging my condo, but it paid off in finding a buyer that loved my condo and was willing to pay more than what I considered the price I woud agree to. Craig also has put together a cracker jack team for repairs, staging, and moving that was responsive and supportive through the whole process. Craig is my definitely my first choice in selecting a competent realtor.

Lynn, Your success with the 1031 exchange and TIC to condo conversion is due, in part, to your allowing the process to drive the transaction. I wish you joy and happiness with your new home.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $850K in San Carlos, CA.

My wife and I both work and commute and have an infant and a toddler we are responsible for. Our time is precious and scarce. We desperately wanted to get into a greener environment for the kids, but, we needed someone who could lead the charge absent the Realtor talk and manage all the moving pieces (sell our existing home and get us into a bigger one successfully). Craig promised and Craig delivered. He seems to thrive on the challenges. Strangely, we would get emails from him at odd hours, working on our file, advising, supervising his team and pulling in the right vendors and partners when necessary. My wife and I are delighted. He did all that he said he would and a bit more. Ackerman has a refreshingly upbeat, enthusiastic style that seems to attract the right results.

Sold a home in 2014 in Devonshire, San Carlos, CA 94070.

Craig recently helped us sell our condo and purchase our new home. Craig got our condo sold in under 6 hours and was with us every step of the way to help us find the perfect home for our growing family. Craig made us feel we were his one and only priority the entire time. He is very responsive via cell and email and is accessible 24/7. During our home search Craig pointed out signs of wear and tear and reasons for concern, things that would lead to out of pocket expenses down the road for whoever bought the house (things I would have NEVER noticed!). He took a holistic approach in finding the right home for us, he thought of everything and was VERY patient the entire time. Even after we bought our house, we're getting calls and emails from him following up and making sure we have everything we need and that all our questions and concerns are addressed. We will definitely use him again and again. I highly recommend Craig to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
