What our clients are saying about us........
Steve and Johanna were fantastic to work with. Initially we were considering brokers who had reduced commissions but we are glad we went with the Craig team. As a full commission agent they certainly take their listings to new levels. Always in touch and available. Willing to discuss various strategies to maximize the sale of our home...both in timing, staging, inspections, selling and closing. Even after closing they continue to touch base to ensure full satisfaction. I recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling as their commitment to the client is first and foremost. I will definitely use them in the future.
Johanna and Steven Craig know the market - when we inquired into selling our home they were full partners. After doing our own research we suggested a sale price to the Craigs. Understanding the Sammamish market is not as hot as it was a year or three previous we were not expecting to sell our home rapidly. The Craigs recommended a price that was $10-$12K less than our thoughts but backed up their recommendation with data. They suggested the lower price would increase the search result visibility of our home and probably result in competing offers. The result was as outlined by Johanna and Steve. We ended up with two competing offers and sold our home at our original sale price. The Craigs are the best realtors we have worked with - having bought and sold 6 homes from California to Florida, Illinois, to Washington State, and now to Virginia. We strongly recommend John L Scott and Johanna and Steven Craig when selling your home in Sammamish.

We have worked with Steve & Johanna over the past 15 years to buy and sell several homes. We keep coming back to them again and again because we developed a trusted bond and know they have our best interests at heart. They are flexible and handle details for us, so buying and selling our homes always feels smooth and easy.
Steve and Johanna have tremendous knowledge of this area. Because they have their finger on the pulse of our neighborhood, they are able to guide us well and offer great advice. Plus, their extensive network of connections has provided many valuable professional resources that have saved us time and costly mistakes versus choosing someone we did not know and trust.
When making such a significant investment, it gives us great peace of mind knowing we have Steve and Johanna on our side advocating for us.

We worked with Steve and Johanna 18 years ago, so when it came time to sell our current home an buy another, we couldn’t imagine choosing anyone except them. It was a tricky proposition to thread the needle of buying and selling at the same time, but The Craigs were there to guide us every step of the way. They made this potentially sticky situation so smooth and seamless.
Steve and Johanna were extremely kind, patient and professional. We really appreciated working with them as a couple. It was beneficial to have both a man’s and woman’s perspective in making a decision about this huge investment in our future. Plus, their extensive knowledge of Issaquah and Sammamish neighborhoods turned out to be a HUGE advantage. After taking the time to really listen to what is most important to us, they knew the right areas to search and found the perfect home.
We feel like we hit the jackpot! Not only do we have a lovely new home of our dreams, but two new friends in Steve and Johanna. We whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. You’ll be so glad you chose to have them on your side.

While selling a home is never at the top of my "fun things to do" list, the Steve Craig and Johanna Craig not only made this a smooth and easy process, they provided support in a number of key ways that helped us survive the process. First, our staging and design person helped us begin both the downsizing we needed to do and the prepping for showing. We cleared out and rearranged, with the result that I thought I might like to have David come to our new home to help with art and furniture placement. Second, they worked with us to prepare high-quality photos, an interactive walk-through, and focused, well-crafted marketing materials. Third, as experts on our area and our development inparticular, they worked with buyers' agents to represent our property to greatest advantage. I could keep enumerating, but let's just say they went above and beyond with open houses, looking after things when we left town when the property went on the market, and negotiating a full-price offer with no hitches along the way. We are sorry to have gotten to know them better just as we left the area, but I am sure we will see them again. Wonderful people, wonderful Realtors.

Steve and Johanna are the consummate professionals and two of the best on the East Side. We just listed our property with the Craig team and their pre-listing coaching, helping us to prepare the home, and staging techniques are top-notch.

Steve & Johanna made selling our home the easiest thing about our move across country! We had so much on our plate and they took care of all the details and then some for us... which was especially helpful when we were already out of the area. Their photography, marketing and staging suggestions ensured a fantastic deal. Professional, super responsive and a pleasure to work with...we highly recommend!!! Thanks again Johanna & Steve!

Steve and Johanna go above and beyond. I felt comfortable with them from the get go. They were prepared, knowledgeable and confident they could help us. They delivered on that promise. They shared their valuable roll-a-deck of professionals to help us fix up our house to sell. Being able to delegate this to them meant less on our plate during a stressful time.
Buying a house is emotional. When buying in a competitive climate, Steve kept an objective point of view to be sure we didn’t overbid and end up at risk. I trust Steve and Johanna to protect my interests. I know they’re not going to put us in a situation where we would end up paying too much, yet still help us land our perfect home.

We moved from out of state and Steve & Johanna made the transition very smooth. They are very professional and knowledgeable regarding the local area real estate market. They are patient and willing to spend time answering many questions. Steve & Johanna are a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend them! Their years of living in the PNW and expertise in the real estate market shows.
If you are looking for supportive and knowledgeable agents that know the work it takes to buy and/or sell a home from start to finish then Steve & Johanna are it!
~Desi & Dave Bradford
Steve and Johanna have worked with us to sell our last two homes. They have been extremely professional, efficient, and fun to work with. Their marketing, personal touch, and market knowledge are all top-notched. They make the process simple and stress free. Both of our homes sold within days at a price well above asking. We couldn't be happier with their representation.
