Craig Ackerman built his boutique firm as an alternative to inflexible corporate brokerages.

He says, “I’m always tweaking my process to give clients a seamless experience, and the advantages of an entrepreneurial approach.”

Over the last decade, he developed a sophisticated process, from detailed research and a cost-benefit analysis to targeted demographics and a team of partners on call for related services.

"I work with property owners, trustees, attorneys, and financial advisors at whatever level of involvement they're comfortable with," says Craig. "Many times, especially when the owner lives out of town, they just hand me the house keys. Then I recommend steps to prep the house for the highest sale price. We handle all approvals by email, and I bring in my team to paint, redo the floors, etc. I have it down to a science."

Get in touch. I'm used to creative problem solving and anticipating roadblocks.
