  • Craig listed and sold my home

      My mother passed and left a 3rd party trustee in charge of her estate. We needed to sell a tear down duplex. The trustee brought in 6 other top agents in San Francisco that specialized in selling trust property. The trustee wanted to pick one of them when my brothers and I insisted he bring in Craig. Craig sold this property in 10 days (others suggested a month to sell) and he sold it for 40% above the best number predicted by these 6 other experts (not above list price but ABOVE their theoretical estimate as to what it would sell for). He has also assisted my family, friends & clients in buying and selling homes. Every real estate transaction is an opposed test of skill. Someone ends up paying too much or getting too little for their property. When you want to be on the winning side of that equation you better call Craig.

            Craig did a great job. He communicated during every step of the process and made sure there were no surprises. Craig’s team was very professional in how they prepped the home for sale and each vendor was on time and on budget. The experience could not have gone smoother

              Very helpful! We were having problems selling our home in the depressed housing market. We switched to Ackerman Realty and we're glad we did. Craig understood our needs and kept a steady stream of potential buyers to view the home. Once he found a buyer he diligently watched out for our interests and made sure the process was completed as quickly as possible. Craig was always available and willing to talk, every step of the way.

                Working with Craig and his team was a true privilege! We were not sure about selling but when we made the final decision, we reached out to several agents including Craig. Craig gave us really valuable advice such as moving out and staging the place. Once we moved out, he and his team took over and everything was unbelievably fast! They put the place on the market and sold it in a week. Craig has great connections to contractors and staging which helped everything to go smooth and fast. Selling is not easy and I was preparing myself to the most stressful period of our lives but we actually didn't do much other than watching how they were on top of every detail. Working with the Ackerman Realty Group was a true joy. I am really looking forward to work with them in the future again.

              • Craig listed and sold my home

                  Craig Ackerman's team worked out very well for us in a number of ways. We initially interviewed 5 different real estate agents--however Craig was the only one who showed up with everyone that was needed --including a contractor-- at our very first meeting after an initial call by phone. This showed me how seriously Craig takes his business. The contractor was able to spot a few things that needed updating and we were able to see how the place could be updated to be sellable within several weeks. Craig also was able to provide his estimate for what the property could be listed for, how he came up the number and what he thought might happen in the unclear market immediately post-COVID in March 2021 when we first started. The transformation of the condo was amazing with painting, bathroom update and a few new appliances and we received a great offer within in the context of competition from 3 other units in the same building on the market at the same time. What I appreciated from Craig was his honesty, initiative and determination in getting things on the market and off the market as quickly as possible. Very happy with our result. His team members were also invaluable with constant email communication about questions from potential buyers, keeping us on top of signatures needed ect. Thanks Proof Real Estate team!

                    I enjoyed working with the Ackerman Realty group. Everyone was pleasant, efficient and on time. I especially enjoyed talking with Charles. He had no problems helping me out with a few of my computer short coming. If I have the occasion to need a realty group it will certainly be the Ackerman Group. Thank you

                  • Craig listed and sold my home

                      Working with Craig and his team was such a delight. We had 5 offers received on the bid date. The home sold for $175K over the asking price and we did this while the home was tenant-occupied during the entire process. Craig is very knowledgeable about the market and was there to answer all of our questions. He has a great eye for design and was able to help us make cost-effective decisions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

                    • Craig listed and sold my home

                        House sold the second day after it came on the market, at $471,000 over the asking price, all-cash, and closed 10-days later. All this given the current pandemic. Craig and his team are outstanding.
