Craig Ackerman

500+ Successful Sales

For nearly 20 years, Craig Ackerman has been adding value to his clients’ home sales. 

He likes to present options for broadening a property’s appeal through quick, strategic cosmetic resurfacing. Most clients follow his plan, allowing him to deliver the highest possible selling price. 

He often sets new price records in a neighborhood. “But I don’t specialize in any particular district,” he points out. “My best practices apply everywhere, and I consistently sell homes with more offers and for more money throughout the Bay Area.”

A lifetime in home transformation and real estate

He started as a kid in the family business, working alongside his brother and father as they painted, replaced faucets, installed countertops, and cleaned up landscaping — prepping New Jersey homes to rent or sell. 

Craig developed a keen sense for where to spend to attract buyers and how to negotiate so everyone wins. 

Since then, he has earned a contractor’s license; has bought, refurbished, and sold his own homes; and has guided the refresh of hundreds of San Francisco and Bay Area client properties. To his great satisfaction, he’s helped homeowners, investment property owners, and developers, generating millions in additional profits for them.

His accomplishments include:

  • 500+ Bay Area real estate transactions completed
  • Top Agent Network, verified member since 2012
  • Five Star Agent Award for customer service, last seven years
  • Former licensed contractor
  • Author, “Selling Grandma’s House”
  • Certified New Home Specialist
  • Residential Construction Certified

International sensibility

After college and before Craig landed in California, he spent 10 years in Asia, managing sales of commercial flooring to Fortune 500 companies for Milliken. He often grabbed a hard hat and met with the designer and architect in a half-built high rise before the window glass was even installed.

Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, China. Craig enjoyed working with people across borders and absorbing cultural nuances. He also acquired sophisticated marketing, team management, and interior design skills that have served him and his clients all through his professional life. 

On the personal side

Above all, Craig is a family man and loves spending time with his wife and young son, from hanging out at home to travel and Little League games.
