Since 1999, he's been bringing that knowledge, plus a decade of record-setting success in corporate sales and marketing, to his work with discriminating Bay Area home buyers and sellers.
Craig established Ackerman Realty to outperform traditional brand-name real estate agencies. Thanks to his high-energy, creative and results-focused services, sales consistently rank in the top 2% of all San Francisco Realtors®.
