Craig is truly great at what he does. We first worked with him as our buyer’s agent when moving to the Austin area. This time around, we chose him to be our listing agent when we we relocating away from the area and we are glad we did. Craig was always available for followup regarding processes and questions we had-from listing all the way to closing day. He always made sure to keep us up to date with any information we needed. Craig has a great understanding of the market and is straightforward & honest, which we valued. I couldn’t sing his praises more.
We worked with Craig McGuire and he was phenomenal from start to finish with regards to selling our home. He was detailed and very thorough in how he navigated us through the selling process. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home and in fact we are using his vast expertise as well to build new future home over the next year.
Every aspect of working with Craig McGuire and his team was positive. Highly recommend!
Worked with Craig McGuire of Bramlett Residential and had the best home buying experience. My wife, Diana, is a realtor in Pennsylvania, so we know something about the process and customer service. Relocating to Austin can be daunting, especially with not knowing the landscape and areas most in tune with our needs. Craig met with us virtually several weeks before our first trip to Austin. His efforts to get to know us and to define initial search criteria was a welcome experience. We were able to critique many homes before arrival, which allowed Craig to zero-in to our unique needs. Wow! Craig produced home showing plans that were outstanding. He spent at least three days showing homes and was extremely attentive. We decided on a home that is perfect for us and through Craig’s knowledge of the competitive market, guided us into an offer that was accepted first off. No horrow stories for us and a big thanks to Craig. A true gentleman and consumate professional. I highly recommend working with Craig!
We worked with Craig McGuire in our Austin house search, and he is awesome! Thanks to him, we closed successfully on our new home. Being first time home buyers, we did not understand the process and steps involved. And to make matters worse, the Austin housing market was absolutely crazy for buyers. Craig was very patient with us, guiding us through the home buying process, answering our questions and helping us understand the local real-estate trends. He would always double check if we are comfortable with the price we are bidding, to ensure we are thinking it through and not making an impulsive bid out of frustration. Very professional, always responsive and reliable. Will definitely recommend Craig to my friends.
Today’s real estate market has remarkably changed. You now have to compete against not only higher prices, limited inventory but also multiple bids. Craig McGuire was excellent in his approach to what is available, how to negotiate and offer the most attractive contract in a bidding war and also making sure that he is available to show when something does come on the market. I got out-bidded three times but in the end it was definitely worth it for finding the best home and more room for your buck.
I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a home, condo or lot to reach out to Craig for the best advice and strategy for buying that home.
We worked with Craig McGuire at Bramlett, we have all praise for him. During these hostile months for buyers, the housing market was heavily tilted towards sellers. Craig was very patient and kind. At times when we were very much down emotionally because of losing a bid or two very narrowly, he would say all the right things to keep us on the look out for another home that would be even better fit. We ended up with a home that we like a lot, and a lot of the credit goes to Craig helping us and having timely discussions with seller’s agent(s) all the time. If anything, Craig was only more cautious to not let his clients unnecessarily bid too high without being comfortable. We definitely recommend Craig’s services with Bramlett.
Working with Craig was great – great communicator, understands the Austin are very well, quick responses, helped me understand the buying process & helped me find a great house quickly. Would definitely recommend working with Bramlett Residential / Craig.
Craig is great and he has been a blessing to our family. Wish we could do 10 stars!
I was initially quite leery of entering the crazy Austin Real Estate market. I’d heard horror stories about bidding wars with over 30 offers, having to pay $100,000 over asking price, and houses not appraising for the contract price. When I first spoke with Craig McGuire of Bramlett Residential Real Estate, he was realistic about the current market, but optimistic that he would find me a place that I would love and would feel comfortable with the purchasing process. Early on, I found a couple of homes that I was tempted to submit an offer for. Craig was thorough in his research of the homes and comps and was able to steer me away from a house that was not going to appraise and another that had potential to be a messy situation all around. When I finally found “the one” Craig went above and beyond to help me put together a strong offer that I could feel comfortable with. He made himself available whenever I need to talk out the situation and alleviate any of my concerns. Ultimately, I was able to have a quick closing on a house that I love with a purchasing situation that was definitely not the nightmare that I had feared. For someone who is considering wading into the Austin Real Estate market, I wholeheartedly recommend working with Craig McGuire!
The transaction went very smooth. Craig was very knowledgable and helpful every step of the way. This was our first time buying new construction and Craig was very helpful in navigating the ways it differs from buying an existing home. Honestly, Craig went above and beyond. We were out of state buyers so Craig was literally our eyes and ears on the ground. He especially went above and beyond after the ice storm. On the day he got back in town (after being strand out of town himself due to the storm), he went over to our house to inspect it for any damage related to the storm that would have delayed our closing which was 2 weeks away.
Craig McGuire has been exceptional throughout our home buying journey. The whole process was such a mystery to us initially but everything seemed to effortlessly fall into place with the help and guidance that Craig provided. I was particularly impressed with how informed Craig is and that he was able to communicate his knowledge to us so that we could make calculated decisions. To top it off, Craig is cordial and has a great sense of awareness. We would not hesitate to work with Craig or anyone at Bramlett Residential in the future.
