About Eric

I've been working as a realtor in Marin County for about 15 years. I absolutely love what I do and am blessed to be able to help my clients achieve their real estate goals. In addition to focusing on the transaction, I believe in creating relationships with my clients, with other professionals in the area and with the area itself.

That's all so I can help you sell your home for the best possible price or help find you the ideal place to live.

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 Lucas Valley-Marinwood?

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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Lucas Valley-Marinwood?
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.
