Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $2.325M in Carlsbad, CA.

My wife and I have used Barrie and Annemarie to sell a home and to purchase a couple of homes. They work together as a wonderful team meeting every need that comes up and addressing all concerns. On our most recent purchase, it was approximately a 2 year search and even though we werent sure we would ever be able to make the move we were contemplating, AnnMarie always took time to show us homes and kept us up to date on the market, new listings, and features of the various neighborhoods in which we were looking. They also repeatedly went above and beyond what I consider typical realtor job duties. Whether it was picking up our mail, referring home improvement professionals, or anything else that our very hectic professional lives created a need for. Lastly, they were always focused on what we were looking for as a family, never just about making a sale. Their advice helped us get an outstanding price on our sale, and happiness from the two homes that were purchased. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Barrie and AnnMarie and recommend them to anyone looking for help.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $900K in San Marcos, CA.

We were uncertain about the timing of selling our home, but as soon as we met with Barrie and AnneMarie we were confident that they would be incredible advisors and that they would be able to sell our home at a great price. We knew that they had sold our same plan at the highest price in stone canyon. Once we decided that we were ready to sell they helped walk us through the entire process. Because of their experience and expertise they were able to sell our home at a high price in just 9 days. Their expertise and professionalism made our home selling experience uniquely wonderful! They really are our neighborhood experts. They sold our home and they can sell yours too!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Escondido, CA.

Buying a house was a big decision and a very complicated process for us but Barrie & AnneMarie Crake made things easier and less complicated because of their tireless and excellent efforts negotiating in closing a deal to a dream house we're in right now, their expertise and professionalism are above and beyond. When it's time to sell our house it was such an unstressful process using them as real state agents because they guided us thru the end and sold our house fast and at a right price. In the future if we decide to sell and buy a house again we will use them as our Real State agents without hesitation. Leland and Rose Marcial

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in San Marcos, CA.

Barrie & AnneMarie were very patient with us as we were involved in an estate distribution which took much longer than anticipated. While we were anxious to sell our home and buy out of the area, the settlement took a while. The Crake's kept in contact and assured us they would be ready to help at the right time.

We sold our home in eight days! AnneMarie arranged for the listing photos and we loved the great photography which displayed our home on a golf course to it's full potential. We were in contact with the Crake's on a daily basis which was very reassuring to us.

The paperwork involved in this process is amazing but Barrie stayed right on top of it every step of the way, as did their assistant Dawn.

All in all, a great experience! We would recommend Barrie & AnneMarie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!! Thanks to you both!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in San Marcos, CA.

Extremely satisfied with my experience. I had concerns when listing my home due to a very recent comp for very same house that was low. Barrie and Anne Marie assured me that we could do much better, but the agreed upon listing price was still a bit less than I was looking for. Then they went to work. Anne Marie spent much time working up a plan to show my house (what I thought was perfect) at its best appeal. I was hesitant to do some painting and removing a number of my favorite decorations. It sometimes is not easy hearing what someone wants you to do. But the goal was to sell my home so I listened. Smartest thing i could have done. In one week we had five offers! Then Barrie went to work. He helped me sort through the offers and offered some insights. However, Barrie made sure the ultimate decision was mine. He did an excellent job during negotiations. In the end, we got above asking price and it was well above the recent comp.

During the next several weeks, while two escrows were going on, Barrie and Anne Marie were always there to keep things running and smoothing out the rough edges that are bound to occur. In addition, their support staff was always there to help take care of the many details.

Going in, I thought Barrie and Anne Marie would meet my expectations. My surprise is that they exceeded them.

The Crake Team is amazing! We really could not be happier with the house that we purchased. Anne Marie and Barrie did an exquisite job matching us with houses that were in our price range and hit our key points. So glad we were referred to them and would recommend to anyone looking in the area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in San Marcos, CA.

Barrie & Anne Marie have two wide areas of expertise which make them the ultimate Real Estate team. We recently sold my late father's home in Lake San Marcos. The house sold within a couple of weeks for a price that I was more than pleased with. In fact, the closing sale price was nearly 11% higher than the suggested listing prices of two other local agents. Anne Marie is an expert when it comes to staging the home -- expect strategic and meaningful staging. For example, being on the golf course at Lake San Marcos, she incorporated pictures and displays that captured the vision of living at the Lake (Lake and Golf themes). The marketing was more than impressive; professional grade photography, expansive online exposure, brochures, you name it. Barrie is an expert in contracts and negotiation. It felt great having someone to be there during the stressful negotiation process. I never felt pressured, just sensible and honest advice. They even delivered pizza to my children as they were cleaning up the landscaping before an open house. They truly care about you, your home and making the process as stress-free as possible. I would highly recommend the Crake Team to anyone in need of Real Estate services. They are top notch.
