“Efficient and non-intrusive service. They recommended an agent, Craig Ackerman, who got us our dream home after only 3 weeks, 4 house-viewings, and one offer later. We'd gone through 3 ineffective agents over a 4 month period before this, so it was much appreciated!”

“Craig was super helpful in representing my wife and I as buyers. We felt like we negotiated a fair offer as he helped us understand the current market. I was especially impressed with how digitally organized the entire process was. The repository of documents was impressive. Text, email, and phone Craig and his team were always available. Finally, kudos to his back office support and team as they also helped shepherd the entire process.”

“We went with Proof after seeing several other Realtors. Craig and his team were great. They fast, efficient, through and professional. They were able to generate a lot of interest in a short amount of time. They got us 11 offers and most exceeded our expectations. Thank you Craig and your team for all the help and care you took.”

“I worked with Craig and his team to buy my house in the Sunset District in San Francisco and had a great experience. He is incredibly hard working and puts in a ton of effort when the clock is ticking and you are preparing to meet an offer date. In terms of knowledge of San Francisco and the market is very good. He has very good intuition of price and in our limited sample set he was right on. Finally he is only looking for your best interest and is completely patient. He has no problem telling you to pass on a house even when you might think its a good idea even if it might result in a sale for him. Overall a great guy and if you use him once he will be with you forever and happy to consult with you on anything.”

“Craig helped us find and purchase our house in Novato, CA. He was very hardworking and always available. We had a lot of questions and follow ups in researching the details of the house, and Craig worked very diligently to follow up on our requests, connect us with the right people to inspect the house, getting us whatever information possible to answer our questions. He went above and beyond connecting us with neighbors to tell us about living in the area. He was there for us every step of the way, and we are so happy to be living where we are now!”
