California dreamin' became a reality for me in 1985 when I moved to Cupertino as VP of Sales and Marketing for a Silicon Valley startup. My wife Mary and I moved to Los Gatos in 1992, after our two daughters graduated from Monte Vista High School.
 
With a 25 year history of living in and enjoying this special place, as both a home buyer and seller, I decided to apply my passion for sales and service to helping others realize their real estate dreams. I've dealt with new home construction, complete home renovations, home purchases and sales, and rental of investment properties.   As a licensed real estate agent it is my privilege to help others achieve their real estate goals by utilizing my first hand experiences.

I joined The Sereno Group because of the company's focus on accountability to, and responsibility for, the client/transaction process and for the quality of the client's experience. I believe in the company's promise that each Sereno Group member pledges to be the single positive difference in our clients' experience; that each Sereno Group member pledges to bring to our clients what they rightly deserve: our very best through teamwork, concentrated effort and a standard of excellence.

I am proud to represent a company that demands excellence and impeccable customer service from its sales agents and entire staff at every level. 

When you entrust the sale or purchase of your home to me, you are putting your faith in the entire Sereno Group organization.

    Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Los Gatos, CA.
    I needed to refresh our sweet little "vintage" condo, but did not want to spend a lot of money on cosmetic upgrades or staging. Craig was instantly on the same "budget" page as I was, with strategic suggestions and great ideas that had not even occurred to me. Once we decided to list we were ready to SELL -- through his excellent resources and contacts Craig enabled us to accomplish the property inspection, termite inspection, whole house cleaning, carpet cleaning, and many other small tasks in less than a week. Within days we were ready for Open House. With very little effort and expense on my part, the condo looked fresh and fantastic and we had multiple offers within days. Thanks to Craig for all the help, and for the excellent results!  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2012.
    Craig helped me find a nice townhouse in Sunnyvale in July this year. He is very knowledgable on local real estate market and is very pleasant to be with. I had a few experience with other agents. They all seemed pushy, which made me uncomfortable. However, I've never felt being pushed by Craig on making buying decisions. I really like his comprehensive comp sale analysis. Very helpful on setting up the right price. He is responsive and professional. Felt like that I was his only customer :-) Highly recommended!  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2012.
    Craigs knowledge of the area and quick understanding of our needs was key. He was incredibly organized, responsive and great at the negotiation. We found our home quickly and the process was painless. We would highly recommend him.
