""This was the best experience selling a home. It only took a week to sell and the attention to detail was like none other. in addition Craig personally went out to the home multiple ties when I could not. He also showed up at the title company when I needed to sign paperwork to inspect the documents and make sure I understood the transaction. He is very caring and professional. His level of communication was also the best. He would check in daily to make sure I always knew what was going on. I have sold many homes and this was a totally different and better experience. I was blown away !""
