Craig Chastain's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Craig Chastain

    • Craig is a real estate good luck charm. Within the first week of contacting him, I not only put in an offer to my dream condo, but also had my offer (which was well below asking price) accepted. My experience working with him as a first time homeowner was extremely pleasant, and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in search of a realtor in the Rancho and surrounding area. Craig is extremely professional and courteous. Every time I contacted him via email, text, or phone call, he always responded within an hour. As a first time homeowner, I was often confused by all the real estate jargon, and felt very overwhelmed at times. Anytime I had a question or needed clarification, Craig would explain the process to me in terms I could understand. In addition, he is a strong advocate for his clients. On more than one occasion, Craig advised me against offers/suggestions made by the selling party because he did not feel it was in my best interest. It is apparent that he truly loves what he does, and genuinely seeks to help his clients with the home-buying process. Go with Craig for your real estate needs, you won't be disappointed!

    • When I came to united state, I have told, be careful of real estate agents and car dealers!!! But I should say that is not always true. I never get a chance to meet Craig Chastain myself, I was extremely lucky to find him, not because he was my broker! Because I was able to experience that still we can find a real gentleman, honest, reliable, ethical, reasonable, knowledgeable, fair, professional,... Human being in the world. He was always available to answer my questions even he didn't work for me by the time, since I live in Arizona, he tried to find me an attorney, giving me some knowledgeable advice, regarding my bad tenant...I asked him to sale my house, not only he didn't charge me for the average cost but also he contributed some portion of his commission to us basically he worked for free!!He went above and beyond to help me. Can't say enough about his personality and ethics.I will highly RECOMMEND him.Thank God for introducing Craig to me.

    • Craig is a consummate real estate agent! He is honest, reliable, pro active and has your best interest at heart. I utilized his expertise when we bought our first home. From getting financed to moving in he was there every step of the way. I highly recommend his services!!!

    • Craig is the best realtor i could have asked for. He went WAY out of his way and beyond his minimal requirements as a realtor to make sure that our first-time-home-buying experience was perfect. With every hiccup down that bumpy road of buying a home, he always had a great solution. Viewing homes that were not near my at-the-time current residence was made a lot easier than one would expect to be. Very personable. He got to know my family. He became a friend. I bought my home two years ago, and to this day, I know I can pick up the phone and call him for anything, pertaining to the house, or not. Look no further...he's your guy!!

    • Craig the friendliest and most helpful real estate agent out there. He simply anticipates the needs and takes actions. Many times he does things like he was buying instead of me. He constantly goes the extra step.He responds really fast to emails and available on phone all the time. Working with him was great.

    • Craig was such a knowledgeable and helpful real estate agent. We had been looking at houses for awhile on our own and finally decided to work with an agent so we could find our first home. He was patient with us and never pressured us on any houses. He gave us his honest feedback on homes and if he thought it would work for us or not. We bought a short sale and worked hard with the selling agent to get the tenants out by our closing date. Even after buying our home, he sends up to date estimates of the worth of my house now. If I ever need to buy it sell again, he is the one I'll be calling!

    • I wish there were six stars. Craig worked with my family to buy our home four years ago and then recently helped me sell it in 7 days for over $5,000 over the asking price. He is so knowledgeable and sincere. He makes sure you are represented whether you are the buyer or seller and you know you are in experienced hands from start to finish! I can't recommend him and his team enough!

    • I have been working with Craig for a few months now and it has given me the opportunity to see first hand how he handles his clients. Not every real estate agent is a real estate professional, but Craig certainly is!He pays close attention to his clients and is completely engaged throughout the transaction. I really do recommend him as a trustworthy real estate agent. You will be happy to have him representing you!

    • Whevever you call Craig, he's ready and available and willing to help you out. The nicest part is he's the boss so you're actually hearing the info from the person who knows what's what and not from a minion.I was constantly in contact with Craig as we were on our last home search and he always had helpful information for us.Even though we decided not to move at that time, i'll be in contact with Craig and his team again shortly.

    • Very honest, trustworthy realtor. We've had all good experience with Craig when he helped us get our house 4 years ago. Very efficient and sharp. We have and will keep on recommending him to our family and friends. -- OLIE and MELISSA

    • Well, I recently purchased a home with Craig's help. He worked very hard and we looked for 2-4 months and saw many many homes. During all this tiem he usually responded to me withd an hour or sooner. Which I found to be the fastest respond time from most agents. wrote all offers up quickly and never said no to any offer I wanted to make. I would totally recomend Craig to anyone and would certainly use him again. Sincerely, Gilbert Reyes Apple Valley, CA

    • "Early last year my family and I were looking to purchase a home to upgrade from the one we were currently living in. I came into contact with Craig by searching for an agent online. I sent him an e-mail with some questions and it seemed that he was immediately calling me back with the answers. From that point forward we had a great working relationship. It did take us about 3-4 months to finally find the home that we were looking for, and to be honest towards the end both my wife's and my patients were starting to run thin, but Craig was always there to smooth out all the bumps. We now live in a gorgeous home that sits up on the hill and has probably one of the best views in the area. Thanks Craig! You're the best!!"

    • Great agent. Very patient with us. We were a very picky and he took us to any home we asked him and he was available almost 24/7. He was there on time even if we were never on time and never complained. If he was not available he had his assistants help us.

    • My wife and I listened our home with Next Level Realty and we're so glad we did. Craig sold our house for over market value in under 10 days and we couldn't be happier. Next Level Realty was very friendly and professional and we highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home.

    • We met with Craig Chastain and reviewed his proposal to list our home in Alta Loma. We lived in our home for 29 years and making the decision to downsize was huge. Craig was extremely professional and listened to our concerns. We listed our home with Next Level Realty, professional photos were taken and appointments scheduled for viewing. Our house sold in less than 5 days! Craig's team was awesome to work with. We also used Craig to find us a new home. This took a little longer but he was patient and always provided expertise throughout the process. He provided excellent assistance and we highly recommend Craig and his team!

    • I checked Craig out before signing. He had sold a lot of houses in a relatively short time. He and his staff worked hard and we showed the house many times. His advice on making the house ready was spot-on. It has been over a year since our first contact. The house sold ten months ago. But he still contacts me on a regular basis. If you want to sell, Craig Chastain is the man to do it!

    • So blessed to have an honest man like Craig Chastain help me sell and purchase a new home. He was patient and kind and professional at all times. I trusted him and appreciated his good communication. I highly recommend Craig for all of your real estate sales.

    • The name says it all. They're service is 'next level'. If you're in the market for a new home, or you are looking to sell your home, you owe it to yourself to contact Next Level. Craig is on top of it and knows his stuff. I never had to chase him down. He was proactive in helping us look for a home.

    • I'm horrible at this stuff, but to keep it short and sweet. If you don't use Craig Chastain (for reals, ask for this dude specifically) for your next home purchase or home sale, you're stupid! Good luck using the "other guys". #nextlevelrealtyisrealnextlevel

    • When making such a large decision such as purchasing a house, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust. I feel so fortunate that I found Craig Chastain of Next Level Realty. So much so that I used him when I bought my first home 7 years ago, and again for my second home last August. I was 7 months pregnant and told him that I want to close escrow before I have the baby. We moved to our new house in 6 weeks!!!!! We got the house below list price plus $$$$ credit at close of escrow. He made the process seamless and stress free. I can't speak highly enough of our experience working with Craig. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. He was always there every step of the way. He has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. For future real estate needs, it would Craig who we will call again.

    • I was lucky to find Craig after working with 1/2 dozen real estate professionals. Not that I was picky but here's my 2 cents on agent personalities- 1. Wannabe- new entrants to eager not much experienced 2. Experienced but selfish - they are Million Dollar producers after 2-3 showings if you do not give offer they get disinterested, 3. Not good listeners- can't read buyer's needs. I was looking to buy in Rancho area almost for 1 and half years. I had full-fledged Approval letter not pre-qualified or other types. Thus agent need not have anxiety if buyer is going to bet qualified. That is the first exercise one should do to motivate agents. My must have list was short- 1. Above baseline, near good schools- Osos/Alta Loma, Small yard especially front, preferably built after 1980 and my price limit. Waiting helped, prices came down and luck played part too when our offer was accepted. Here are 10 reasons why you must let Craig work for you- Craig never forced me in to writing an offer. You will be surprised but there were agents who were making me write offer on trashy houses around foothill close to railway tracks or go little over my budget. We agreed especially on the houses that did not deserve offer. Craig hardly ever got lost searching a property because he and his wife knows area well as they are local. Craig worked with my schedule including weekends. Crunch time came when offer was accepted and Escrow-Wells Fargo and selling agent needed to be on the same plane. Selling agent was threatening lender to call off the deal when Wells managed to fund it on the last day inked in the contract. That is when Craig provided needed hand-holding. Many times agents do not do their home work and house keys don't work or there are no keys to show the house. With Craig it never happened, Craig could find and work the keys of houses we were going to see. I used my own Independent Inspector to check the house before giving offer and Craig was alright with it- thus there was no conflict of interest. Seller's side- After Sale Service- On each anniversary I get colored print-outs from Craig showing Market Analysis- how much my house has increased in price in case I want to sale. I already know when I am in the Market for selling - Craig will be the guy I will trust. It is reasonable to expect promptly returned phone calls, clear communication and honest opinions. Experienced in the Market- Focused on your interest. When you tell him above baseline between Haven and Carnelian- that is what he will show you.

He goes out of his way to insure he not only finds you the right property to fit your needs but is there every step of the way to make the sell or buying process goes as smooth and quickly as possible. Craig is someone who has integrity, responsibility , honesty, respectful and kindness.
