TESTIMONIALS

Smooth From Start to Finish

From start to finish was perfect. Kept all his promises. Kept me positive about the whole process because we all know how stressful the home buying process actually is. The first list of homes suggested to me was nailed right on the head and the very first house we went and viewed actually ended up being the house i purchased. Ryan stayed ontop of the deal the whole time and made sure i was satisfied and happy with everything i got. Ryan was able to negotiate in more then i even asked for and totally knocked this out of the park. I will suggest Ryan to anyone, any day of the week without hesitation and when im ready to buy more land i will be asking Ryan for help. I would actually feel uncomfortable using anyone else with how perfect Ryan made this purchase for my family and i

Ryan did an amazing job for me from start to finish. I gave Ryan some ideas of what i wanted and he nailed the list of property's first try. I ended up purchasing the first home we viewed. Ryan negotiated and got me more then i asked for which was awesome and made the experience that much better. Working with the bank was extremely stressful but Ryan stayed ontop of everything and helped make it go as smooth as possible. Even if it meant calling me at 8pm to tell me its going to be fine. I cant thank Ryan enough for helping me get my dream home and more.

Ryan Craig is attentive and a great listener. A realtor and person that made my process important and reassured. I went through a few other realtors before running into him and his great service. He wasn't just professional but also light hearted and also shared some hobbies with me. Best realtor I have worked with hands down. If you are looking for someone that will listen, work with you and care about your situation then Ryan is your guy.

We got numerous offers and accepted one that was $40K over our asking price

Ryan and Jenni marketed our house in a unique way that generated tremendous interest. We got numerous offers and accepted one that was $40K over our asking price which we had considered a good value! They were successful in taking what I considered a long term process into a 3 days and done win for us!! Many tanks to them for obtaining maximum value for our house! Ken and Carol Miller -

My husband and I had a great experience working with Ryan & Jenni Craig on our recent property purchase. The knowledge, expertise and diligence they brought to our transaction went well beyond our expectations and certainly helped us secure the property in a competitive market. We would absolutely recommend working with this team and plan to do so again on our future transactions!

Jenni and Ryan response to each situation in a supportive professional manner.

Ryan and Jenni (and Diann) were amazing to work with! My husband and I worked with Ryan and Jenni for over a year looking for our retirement home in Traverse City. The home buying market was a challenge to say the least. We encountered so many unfair and unethical real estate agents when bidding on houses. Jenni and Ryan response to each situation in a supportive professional manner. They truly work for their clients. We were finally able to find our forever home and took ownership in October. 😊 We highly recommend Ryan and Jenni. The most kind and supportive agents we have worked with. Ryan and Jenni, thank you so much! - Tina T.

Ryan and Jenni are not only amazing people but they are amazing to work with...

Ryan and Jenni are not only amazing people but they are amazing to work with. They make everything so easy! They are always there to help and answer any questions. They help you in any way possible and are full of resources. Ryan and Jenni will always be my go to from now on. - Heather H.

They communicated well and kept me up to date on anything that was happening.

Ryan and Jenni were so great to work with! They communicated well and kept me up to date on anything that was happening. They made a stressful experience a good experience. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! Brooke S.

I’ll add that we went through the entire process from 1,000 miles away (military family).

We purchased our first home this month with The Craig’s as our agents; I’ll add that we went through the entire process from 1,000 miles away (military family). The housing market this year is unbelievably competitive and we honestly were unsure how soon we would find a home, and we had a deadline! Ryan and Jenni assured us that they would find us the perfect house and with enough time for us to arrive when we were supposed to. After several offers, we had one accepted and found a perfect home for our family. The Craig’s worked to make it happen. They answered our questions, called to let us know what was going on with any delays, kept us in the loop and explained everything to us. Buying a house is hard enough; buying one from states away is definitely more challenging and it truly helped to have realtors who were invested in your family and future. Thank you Ryan & Jenni for helping us with this entire process and being there for our family! Joanna B.

We were blown away by the amount of attention and interest that our home received

Ryan and Jenni Craig are simply amazing! After interviewing 5 real estate agents, we felt most comfortable with the Craigs. They were the only agents that we interviewed that didn’t push us to list our house immediately and made us feel heard. They really listen to all of your feedback. Jenni listens to every comment and thought that you share. She is an amazing thinking partner and will give you her honest opinion. These two are not in the business of doing a quick sell to make a buck. Ryan and Jenni are class-act, salt-of-the-earth people who will go above and beyond to find the right home for you and your family. They also did such an amazing job selling our home. They provided a professional photographer, shared our house on social media, and marketed our house like crazy! We were blown away by the amount of attention and interest that our home received. It was all thanks to the time, attention to detail, and hard work done by Ryan and Jenni. We honestly could not be happier and we will recommend them to any/everyone we know looking for a home! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Adam G.

We HIGHLY recommend this power couple to help you buy and/or sell your next home!

After 8 months of trying to sell our house, my partner and I were feeling beyond exhausted with the process and just wanted our house to be sold. We interviewed several new agents to relist our house with, but immediately felt connected to Ryan and Jenni. They expressed empathy to our situation, offered new and unique approaches, and were incredibly enthusiastic about being able to sell our house. Ryan bent over backwards to prepare our property to be relisted, including referring us to some trusted professionals as well as even doing some renovations himself to help it move faster. A short time later, we ended up with a total of 4 offers on our house and closed on a deal that far exceeded any expectations we had throughout this entire process. Overall, Ryan and Jenni supported us every step of the way through the selling process and sold our house. If we were remaining in the area, we would have asked them to represent us as buyers as well. They are family-oriented, hardworking, friendly, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and all-around great people. They are eager to succeed and will do what it takes to get the job done. We HIGHLY recommend this power couple to help you buy and/or sell your next home! Thank you, Ryan and Jenni!

Looking for a house during a pandemic is no easy task especially when the market is hotter than....

Looking for a house during a pandemic is no easy task especially when the market is hotter than the Arizona desert on the 4th of July. Jenni was responsive, understood our needs as a family and allowed us to remain hopeful when we felt like giving up. They had amazing market knowledge and were up to date on trends and expectations. She was so easy to meet with and schedule showings around the crazy demanding schedule of our children. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a house to reach out to Ryan & Jenni. They made a great team and we are so lucky to have found a home for our family. Thanks again Craig Team!! Kayla F.

Sold my single family home in 2021 for approximately $1.125M in Traverse City, MI 49686.

Ryan and Jenni Craig provided exceptional professionalism in the listing and sale of this property. Their marketing strategy and MLS listing exceeded expectations. The presentation package was a Wow, in my opinion, and multiple offers were received on the property. I have moved multiple times in my business career and highly recommend Ryan and Jenni. -Jon P.

Ryan is very knowledgeable about the market in the Traverse City area and has a great wealth of experience. He consistently follows through with all questions & concerns and in a very timely manner. Most importantly, he lives up to his philosophy of making the selling/buying experience as easy and stress free as possible.

They helped us negotiate multiple over asking offers!

We have no regrets about choosing Ryan and Jenni to help sell our house. They helped us determine what was important to prepare our house before listing in this market and what wasn't (and helped us find a contractor who could help ASAP). They know the market very well, advised on the right listing price, and their photographer took AMAZING pictures and drone footage. They helped us negotiate multiple over asking offers received and our house was under contract only two days after the first showing!! They are very professional and helpful and answered our questions throughout the process (and some even after the sale). We highly recommend Ryan and Jenni - they are a great team and we are so glad we worked with them! Pat & Nan B.

Ryan and Jenni know how to showcase your home to maximize its marketability

We are pleased to have the opportunity to recommend Ryan and Jenni Craig of Caldwell Banker Schmidt to fulfill your real estate needs. They efficiently and professionally handled the sale of our home in 2020 despite the challenges of dealing with a pandemic. Ryan and Jenni know how to showcase your home to maximize its marketability and distinguish it from the competition. Ryan, as a Traverse City native, understands the unique nature of this community’s housing market and develops pricing strategies accordingly. They are tech savvy and know how to take advantage of social media and all the latest technologies; I.e. drone videos, 3D interactive walk throughs, and schematic floor plans. They have great attitudes, are personable and honest, and are truly interested in helping others. Ryan and Jenni will work very hard to get you the results you are looking for. Roger S.

Oh my gosh I don't even know where to begin with how wonderful Ryan and Jenni are

Oh my gosh I don't even know where to begin with how wonderful Ryan and Jenni are. If you want to feel like you are working with family then The Craigs are where you should go. Ryan and Jenni have been nothing short of amazing. They have had our back throughout the whole home selling and buying process. We sold our house and then had to pause looking at homes during the whole Covid thing but Ryan and Jenni never stopped looking out for us, continually sending us homes to look at online, setting up virtual tours, and keeping us up to the second when the market opened back up for us to walk through houses which at that time had set up EVERY house we had an interest in for showings immediately, some days even multiple houses in the same day back to back. Their knowledge of the housing market (buying and selling) are top notch and I would send everyone I know to the Craigs for their home experience. You aren't just another customer to them, you are family and it feels that way every step of the way. I cannot tell you how blessed my wife and I feel to have been able to work with Ryan and Jenni.

Ryan and Jenni are friendly, down-to-earth, knowledgeable and dedicated to working hard

Ryan and Jenni are friendly, down-to-earth, knowledgeable and dedicated to working hard and doing the right thing for their clients.
