Craig came to us referred by a friend. He was extremely responsive and available everytime we had a question or wanted to see a property. He was also happy to adjust and was patient with us as we jumped around between multiple houses and multiple offers until we found ‘the one’. During the buying process we encountered a difficult seller, but Craig was professional and helped us negotiate price and inspection results that we were comfortable with. We ended up with the house we wanted, in the neighborhood we wanted, for the price we wanted – with a quick close! I would HIGHLY recommend Craig for anyone looking to buy or sell!
We recently hired Craig to sell our home in Carmel Valley. I have bought and sold real estate throughout the United States (single family homes, condominiums, and apartment buildings) for the past 26 years. Therefore I have worked with many agents. Craig is as good as it gets. He is knowledgeable and works hard to do his very best to represent his client’s best interest. He is very responsive, and I can’t think of one thing that Craig didn’t do well to represent our best interests. I would definitely work with him in the future and recommend him to others seeking a real estate professional.
Craig did a phenomenal job of helping me find a great location to move to, locate a perfect condominium, and close the deal. This was my very first time purchasing a home, and if all my experiences are this great, I can’t wait to do business with Craig again.
Thank you Craig for your hard work and dealing with my naïveté.
This was my 3rd time selling a house in the last 15 years. I found Craig to excel in working to stage my home for sale. He was also proficient in working with us on how we could make minor improvements to maximize profit while not letting us invest into non-essential improvements that wouldn’t bring us financial gains. Overall I found Craig to be very professional, responsive and would feel good recommending him to others.

My wife and I have purchased numerous homes and investment properties over the last 45 years. We have had many good realtors, a few outstanding ones, but none on a par with Craig Sanger.
Craig possesses an amazing array of skills: professional expertise, solid work ethic, communication skills,and sensitivity to buyers and sellers. In our case, he communicated effectively with the tenant in our home that we recently sold.
My wife and I would use Craig Sanger’s services for our future needs, and we would, without any hesitation, recommend him to family, friends, and anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Craig did an excellent job selling our home! We listened to all his advice & we able to sell in one weekend. I also really appreciate the fact that Craig returns all texts & emails quickly! I’d highly recommend Craig Sanger.
Craig was recommended to me by an acquaintance. This was my first time purchasing a property, and it was still a relatively new market to me to be searching in. And the entire search took me about a year until I found something that I liked and fit my needs. And through the entire process, Craig was very accommodating, thorough, detailed in outlining the process and steps to expect, and very patient. He never applied any pressure, and let me drive the prospect and search process, but was always there with advice, guidance, and market expertise to help me make the best possible decision. Craig was very responsive and quick to get back to me throughout the entire process, as it seemed that he was available practically 24/7 whenever I had a question or found some new targets to pursue. And his advice on where and what to bid was the one that actually allowed me to win the bid despite coming into the process at the tail end of it. As for the whole escrow and close process, I don’t think it could have gone any smoother and cleaner. Craig and the team of people he has assembled to were very detailed, very communicative, easy to work with, nice, and thorough. The whole process went very quickly and without a hitch, and at the end I felt that I had made an excellent choice. I highly recommend Craig if you are looking to buy a home in the San Diego market, and I fully plan on using his services again in the future.
We had to sell our home due to a highly contested divorce case. My ex-husband and I had no communication with each other other then through attorneys. Getting us to agree on an offer was a challenge. The escrow process was difficult and required many trips to court in order to be able to close. Craig was outstanding in keeping things calm, was always promptly available and kept neutral throughout the sale. Thank you Craig for getting us through this very difficult process and making the sale happen. I am so grateful for your efforts and your professionalism throughout the sale of the home. I would highly recommend Craig for any real estate transaction.
Craig was the best agent I have ever worked with. Helped me through the entire process in all aspects of our purchase and was ALWAYS available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I will always use him for whatever real estate purchases or sales I may have in the future.
We are so grateful to Craig for helping us buy our first home. He is everything you could ask for in a realtor: awesome service, great advice and professional. We worked with Craig for over a year trying to find the right home. Any time we liked a home, he was immediately ready to meet us for a viewing and then to submit an offer. We put offers on multiple properties and Craig was always there making sure things went smoothly. We were so happy to finally get an accepted offer. Craig stayed calm, cool and collected through our escrow process. He had to deal with a challenging agent on the seller’s side and handled everything professionally. We had a fast close date and Craig made sure to stay on top of all the contacts (lender, escrow, seller’s agent, us, etc.). We highly recommend him. Thanks Craig!
His expertise enabled me to sell my house in 2 days and make a significant profit. Craig is very honest about everything. He is excellent in communication and negotiations. He is just outstanding in every aspect and I would highly recommend him to family and friends.
Craig was a great real estate agent and I would highly recommend him. Our house buying process had numerous bumps in the road, due to the house being a Geodesic Dome. Hard to get insurance for the house, hard to get proper inspection, we had lending issues, and so on. Through all this Craig did a great job of navigating us through these difficulties and was able to help us get our dream home! The deal could have easily fell through a couple of times and he kept things moving. In this case, Craig was both the buyer’s agent and seller’s agent, which could have been a challenge, but Craig did a great job with this as well, he was very clear about everything and gave us great advice. Craig is an excellent real estate agent and if I buy or sell another home (hopefully not for a long time) I would certainly use craig as our real estate agent. thanks, Craig!
These are the things I noticed and remember clearly about working with Craig in the sale of my home:
- – My house was a beautiful, but unusual, custom built house that would require some ‘special handling’, and probably require a very well-off or cash buyer with eclectic tastes in order to get a fair price. Craig did not shy away from these facts.
- – Craig exhibited competence as well as a grounded view of real estate transactions; and was straight-talking and honest.
- – Craig was patient with many of my long-winded analytical discussions of strategy and other matters related to the sale.
- – Craig was always available.
As first time buyers, Craig walked my husband and I through the entire process. We started with a customized daily update for listings matching what we were looking for and when we were ready to move forward , Craig was quick to respond, set up viewings to fit our schedule and answer all our questions. We couldn’t have had a better experience for our first time buying – Thank you Craig!
Craig was unbelievably helpful in assisting my wife and I in finding our first home. His consultative approach is perfectly balanced: active and engaged without being overbearing. He was able to navigate us through the entire process, from search to close, with as minimal hassle as I would imagine possible. Results speak for themselves, and we got exactly what we were looking for. Would strongly recommend to anyone with real estate needs.
Mr. Sanger did an excellent job helping me through a negotiation which became stressful at times. His knowledge and expertise helped complete the sale of my house and keep me sane! I highly recommend his services.
Craig was very helpful in negotiating the deal on our behalf. The communication was efficient and effective. We had excellent services from him and we are very pleased with the home.

I never recommend people but in Craig’s case I am compelled to make an exception. We relocated our family from New Zealand to San Diego and were focused on finding the right property in the right school zone.
I must have talked to 20 agents and felt that I was either a number on their list or I was put in the too hard basket….until i talked to Craig. Immediately I felt that he wasn’t just paying us lip service but that he was actually working in our best interest. He found us a house that was perfect for our requirements.
However, the main reason I am writing this was the after sale service – my wife and I had numerous questions relating to living in San Diego and Craig answered every one almost immediately day and night. It was certainly above and beyond the scope and certainly made our transition so much easier than it otherwise might have been.
If you are wanting someone who works diligently for his client, operates with integrity and and is just a nice guy then give Craig a call. I’d recommend Craig to anyone and would happy to back this testimonial up over the phone if required.
I recently worked with Craig in buying and then renting my home all in a matter of weeks! Craig was on top of everything, extremely attentive and very organized throughout the entire process. Everything was seamless and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend him as a broker and definitely would give him 5+ stars. If you are looking for someone that will take care of you from start to finish with a smile on his face-Craig is definitely the broker for you.
Craig made our home buying experience so smooth and stress-free! We actually ‘won’ the first house we put an offer on (which required price negotiation and a tricky multi-counter situation) – so we were very lucky, but also very well advised! Craig shares his commission, is extremely accessible at all hours during the process and knowledgeable about all aspects of the buying/selling process. I would highly recommend Craig to all our friends, whether looking to buy or sell a property.

After meeting him by chance at an open house, we worked with Craig over the course of a few months in the San Diego area to find and purchase our first house. Overall it was a great experience and we’ve since been recommending him highly to our friends.
Needless to say, buying a first house in the San Diego market can be a very stressful experience, but Craig helped immensely by being very quick to answer our frequent questions and handling all aspects of the process professionally, knowledgably, and promptly. Although we were looking in a fairly broad area, Craig was fast to help us determine what listing information best met our needs; it was easy to be on top of the newest listings of interest and that helped us to be fast to make an offer when we found the place we wanted.
Craig was also very valuable in negotiating with the seller and navigating the inspection, loan and escrow processes.
Also important is that Craig is just genuinely a nice person and is easy to talk with. We enjoyed meeting him!
Dr. Marcia Hootman
As a broker of 40 years, (now inactive) I was very meticulous in choosing a realtor to sell my home. I called Craig because he lived in the same community and was referred to me by another resident and friend. I found him to be knowledgeable, energetic and eager to market the property. What I learned about Craig was even more telling.
- He listened patiently to my requests .
- He handled the entire transaction in a timely manner, getting documents to me almost immediately .
- He worked patiently but firmly with the other broker
Most importantly to me…. He always answered every phone call, text and email from me, either on the spot or shortly thereafter I highly recommend Craig to anyone who wants to work with someone who really cares, who knows how to successfully market your property and stays close until the job is done. Thank you Craig.
Matthew & Erin Egan
Craig helped us sell our condo and spent several months with us as we searched for the best home for our expanding family. Throughout the whole process, Craig was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, professional, and full of suggestions and perspectives which we hadn’t considered – and which we’re glad that he raised.
My wife and I especially liked the way that he could take an empty home and translate it into the pros and cons of actually living there, so that we could see for ourselves whether it truly met our needs; moreover, when it came to deal-time, we valued his negotiating skills and his persistence in getting us the best deal. We highly recommend working with Craig Sanger Realty.
Craig raised the bar for all my future expectations for a real estate agent. He more than met every expectation that we had for selling our house and consistently kept my families goals as his top priority. Craig exceeded our expectations with his knowledge and professionalism. He actually physically moved my couch when he staged my home for the open house, while I was at work. Craig did a great job keeping us informed and presented decision points so that things were able to move along smoothly and quickly. He has the experience to see things from a 360 degree perspective, while keeping your objectives inline.
Smart, savvy, client-focused, professional, and confident are great words that describe his style. Craig knows how to work with all parties involved in the process…extremely helpful when there are contingencies in play.
The process of selling my house was easier than ever could be expected. Craig’s marketing generated immediate showings and we had 8 offers within three days of the house going on the market. Craig was very responsive in dealing with every aspect of the sale, I could call and text day or night with a quick response. I couldn’t be happier, I highly recommend Craig Sanger to anyone needing a real estate agent. Thanks Again Craig!
Lee & Ethel Maricle
Contacting Craig was the best decision ever! From the first meeting in our family room we knew that he was genuine and very sincere. He took all the frustration of selling and buying and made it very positive and good feeling.
The most unexpected addition was Craig’s willingness to share his commission. Also, unexpected was at no cost to us, he arrived one day with a professional interior decorator. They moved heavy furniture, plants, pictures and “knick knacks.” In less than a half a day our home was picture perfect…something I tried to achieve for years!
We truly feel as though we gained a friend that understood and helped us in achieving our goal to market and sell our home at its true value. Craig sold our home in three days with his expert savvy. We had three offers on the table and our home sold for more than the list price.
Yeh & Elizabeth
We were happy to have Craig representing us to successfully purchase a hotly contested home in Carmel Mountain Ranch. Not only did he provide first class service in the transaction, he also saved us over $5,000 by crediting part of his commission to us towards the purchase price of the home. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs a realtor and would definitely use him in the future.
Working with Craig was great. He produced results that exceeded our expectations. He turned an otherwise difficult transaction into a very manageable process.
Dr. Zachary Gordon
Craig was very professional. He sold my home above market price and over list in less than 30 days! It was great working with him.
Josh and Angela Bailey
We couldn’t have been happier having Craig as our broker. He was always responsive to our (frequent) calls and questions, was always professional, and moved everything along quickly. He held a broker open house and public open house which eventually led to Craig negotiating an offer well above our aggressive list price. When we are ready to buy, we cannot think of better hands to be in.
We listed our home with Craig and, thanks to his strong negotiation skills, it sold in less than two days for over asking price! He was always quick to respond to our questions (no matter what time of day or night), understood our needs, and made the experience easy and painless. I can’t say enough about Craig’s work ethic and dedication to his clients!
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Craig over the last several months. He has represented me on a number of deals, and I’ve found his skills and attentiveness to be top notch. Craig develops strong relationships with representatives on both the buy and sell side, and has been able to navigate us through a number of tricky issues that have arisen. I’m delighted with the service he has provided on the deals we have closed, and I’m looking forward to working with him as my business grows.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Craig in 2012 and 2013 on the purchase of several investment properties in Southern California. Craig is unbelievably generous with his time, incredibly responsive, and goes above and beyond the call of duty. Earlier this year, I was nearing the close escrow on a single-family home, just as Craig was getting ready to go on a cruise with his family. I was concerned that I might need his help while he was away…but Craig assured me that he would inform all involved parties of his travels, and still make himself available. Sure enough, he was as diligent and responsive as usual – even from the cruise ship
Jan & Hoang
Craig was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He helped us find and close on exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend him.
Gwen Gordon, Bension Dworkin
In the competitive San Diego real estate market, it’s imperative to have a real estate agent with the knowledge of what it takes to win an offer as well as the time and flexibility to support you through the entire home buying process. Craig helped us navigate a difficult sellers market and close on a house in our dream neighborhood.
