About Craig

For nearly 20 years, Craig Ackerman has been adding value to his clients’ home sales. He likes to present options for broadening a property’s appeal through quick, strategic cosmetic resurfacing. Most clients follow his plan, allowing him to deliver the highest possible selling price. He often sets new price records in a neighborhood. “But I don’t specialize in any particular district,” he points out. “My best practices apply everywhere, and I consistently sell homes with more offers and for more money throughout the Bay Area.” A lifetime in home transformation and real estate He started as a kid in the family business, working alongside his brother and father as they painted, replaced faucets, installed countertops and cleaned up landscaping — prepping New Jersey homes to rent or sell. Craig developed a keen sense for where to spend to attract buyers and how to negotiate so everyone wins. Since then, he has earned a contractor’s license; has bought, refurbished and sold his own homes; and has guided the refresh of hundreds of San Francisco and Bay Area client properties. To his great satisfaction, he’s helped homeowners, investment property owners and developers, generating millions in additional profits for them. His accomplishments include: • 500+ Bay Area real estate transactions completed • Top Agent Network, verified member since 2012 • Five Star Agent Award for customer service, last seven years • Former licensed contractor • Author, “Selling Grandma’s House” • Certified New Home Specialist • Residential Construction Certified International sensibility After college and before Craig landed in California, he spent 10 years in Asia, managing sales of commercial flooring to Fortune 500 companies for Milliken. He often grabbed a hard hat and met with the designer and architect in a half-built high rise before the window glass was even installed. Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, China. Craig enjoyed working with people across borders and absorbing cultural nuances. He also acquired sophisticated marketing, team management and interior design skills that have served him and his clients all through his professional life. On the personal side Above all, Craig is a family man and loves spending time with his wife and young son, from hanging out at home to travel and Little League games.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Corte Madera?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Corte Madera?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Corte Madera, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Corte Madera?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
