“Craig Wise did a great job in selling my rental property. He provided me with quality information about pricing it correctly, advertised and marketed it effectively, and provided solid guidance in negotiating a sales price. Craig was extremely professional in handling all aspects of my sale and got me top dollar for my property after only being on the market a few weeks. Craig will be my realtor for any future real estate needs.”

During the fifteen years we have know each other we have gone from coworkers to good friends. I have always know Craig to deal with people with the utmost of character. This is the reason that when my son and daughter-in-law were first time buyers and I asked Craig to assist them through the entire process and he made sure the transaction went smoothly. You will not find someone who combines knowledge, skill and integrity to a greater degree than Craig.”
