Ratings & Reviews

Moving to the area and starting work right away I needed someone I could trust - a tough order these days in any part of the US - and I found that in Craig. He was upfront, honest and NEVER too busy to connect, often putting aside his personal needs for my family's needs. I have and would continue to recommend Craig as he is down to earth, blue collar and simply the person you want to put your trust into when making one of life's largest decisions.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.

I was a first time homebuyer, entering a hot market in June 2013 with tight schedule as my lease was expiring in just two months. We found a house in Willow Glen area and with Craig's expertise in negotiating quickly closed on the property with a favourable price. The whole process went without a hiccup.

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!

Bought a home in 2012 in Serra, Sunnyvale, CA 94087.

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!

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.0M in Downtown, San Jose, CA.

My husband and I loved working with Craig. He was enthusiastic, positive and determined to help us find a home. We went through 6 offers before finally landing a house. We were really close to giving up (moving from Philadelphia area) and pulling the plug on the whole move, but Craig hung in there with us and helped us find a beautiful home that we are extremely happy with. Craig was truly a joy to work with....always a smile and cheerful disposition....which was necessary getting through the frustrating experience of CA real estate!! I highly highly recommend Craig as a real estate agent.....you will enjoy your experience as well as the home you end up with!!

Craig is an absolute pleasure to work with. Due to his strong business background, Craig is extremely professional and responsive. That combined with his outgoing personality makes the process of hunting for a house a truly enjoyable experience. We were almost sorry when it was over. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone looking to buy or sell a house anywhere in the south bay. 2 thumbs up!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.8M in Los Gatos, CA.

My family and I arrived to Los Gatos, and the United States, for the first time in April 2012 looking to buy a home and by chance met Craig at his Sereno Group office. We were in the middle of a challenging relocation process from Europe and from Day 1 Craig was a huge help in not only finding us a house, but in also familiarizing us with the area, connecting us with local mortgage brokers, insurance agents, builders, social activities, etc and generally going way above and beyond to ensure our transition was as smooth as possible. In general Craig displays countless characteristics that are critical in a top real estate agent and someone with whom you would want to work: - Always available... works non stop hours - Puts his clients first, never makes you feel like you are being pushed. - Honest and has 100% integrity - Is aware of needs and makes connections beyond the home transaction only - Friendly and easy to talk to, but will not back down in a negotiation if he feels an item is critical

Overall I would confidently recommend Craig to anybody looking to buy a property and/or looking to meet any relocation type needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $525K in Santa Teresa, San Jose, CA.

Craig helped us find a home in the South Bay area. He is the best realtor you can imagine! I've called him a million times with all kinds of questions and he (and everybody at his office) were always there for us right away! He made the search for a home a lot more pleasant, in this really tough market! We're actually going to miss calling Craig every other day :-). He's the best...

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Los Gatos, CA.

Craig did an outstanding job in selling my mother's condo after she passed away. He was professional, responsive and did a great job in making sure that there was full transparency and open communications through the entire process. He negotiated a very good deal for all involved in spite of a difficult real estate environment. His follow up was excellent and he represented our interests very well through the entire process. He facilitated all of the inspections as well as the stager, staying on top of each step.
