Complementary Styles

Where Johanna has a direct, get-it-done approach, Steve’s is more analytical and measured. She sees a home through the critical eye of her background as a buyer and merchandiser, while he evaluates the details and potential risks/rewards from his years as a listing agent, working with builders and new construction. Johanna’s lens is through that of a wife and mother; Steve’s a husband and father.  Their diverse perspectives bring a holistic management quality to your real estate transaction.

Challenging Market

Today’s real estate market can be challenging, whether you are selling your home or buying another. For sellers, getting the absolute premium pricing requires the expert skills of marketing specialists, master negotiators, like the Craigs, who are experienced brokers capable of detailed transaction management from start to finish. The Craig Team uses professional staging, high definition photography and video to showcase your home to its best advantage. Featured on multiple media platforms, this marketing showcase often leads to multiple, competing offers, resulting in a higher value for your home at closing. 

As a buyer in today’s low inventory market, the Craig Team brings a savvy skill set to identify opportunities, develop a strategy for winning offers and negotiate on your behalf. Our goal is to help you secure a home without putting your finances at risk or grossly over-paying.

Personal Touch

When you work with the Craig Team, you are working with experienced deal makers, not assistants or surrogates. In tandem, Steve and Johanna are immersed in the pre-list, pre-sale process – knowing your needs and goals, diligently following through to the close. While Johanna markets your listing, Steve is handles the negotiation and contract details. You have greater accessibility to the people focused on maximizing the value of your home, not merely processing a transaction.

A Stellar Reputation

Perhaps the most compelling indicator of the Craigs’ expertise are heart-felt testimonials. Clients rave about outstanding service, integrity, cool heads and calm judgment, as well as caring counsel and the attention to detail they enjoyed when they worked with the Craig Team. It’s no wonder many consider the Craigs to be their Realtors for life.

Local Perspective

A Bellevue girl and a Mercer Island boy married and raised three girls in Sammamish.  Steve and Johanna know the neighborhoods, schools and hidden gems on the Eastside.  This knowledge gives them an insider perspective on pricing your home – if you are selling, or finding the right fit for your family – if you’re a buyer. And, if you are moving to the Northwest, beyond their own local familiarity, as a part of JLS’ Relocation Team, you have the benefit of those tools and resources to help smooth your move and transition.

Two for the Price of One

Experience. Reputation. Perspective. Personal Service. Let Steve and Johanna Craig help you take your next real estate move to the next level.
