My Client Testimonials

    Craig is very professional and knowledgeable. He would always respond to our questions very quickly, usually within minutes and always kept us well informed of how things were progressing with our purchase. We were able to close on our vacation home within about 30 days after first seeing it, which was pretty amazing. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering buying or selling property in the Keweenaw area.
    When we started looking for our second house we decided it was time for a relator change. We got recommend to Craig by a friend. Dealing with Craig was excellent and made purchasing our house a breeze. I wish we would have used him for our first home purchase. He is very prompt and kept in touch with us through the process. I tend to get a little frustrated through a home purchase but he addressed any concerns I had right away. Like stated above..I wished we would have used him before! He has a repeating client here. Thanks Craig!
    Craig is an amazing realtor! Very personable, available 24/7, and always working hard to give you the best! Craig is like working with a good friend!
    Craig was eager and excited to help me find my first home. I told him what I was looking for and he was on top of it immediately! He kept a positive attitude and was more than accommodating when it came to setting up home showings around my busy schedule. He was knowledgeable, very thorough, and easy to communicate with; making the entire home buying experience painless and headache-free.
    Craig helped us to sell our home in Laurium, MI during the winter and to get our dream house and property. I would highly recommend Craig due to his positive attitude, strong work ethic, and ability to persevere through any struggles that a person might encounter during the process of selling and / or buying. Thank you Craig!
    Craig was on point and very proactive from the time we contacted him to the very end. Even when he was busy with other clients or requirements he always got back with us. Service after the sales couldn't be better and we couldn't be more happy.
    Working with Craig to buy our second home was an enjoyable process. He was very patient with all of our questions and kept us well informed throughout the whole process. He is very friendly and outgoing as well as honest. Hands down the best in the business!
    Best agent ever! We've dealt with numerous agents and would use Craig's services across the U.P. He's that good. Super responsive and thorough. Wish he could help us with our downstate dealings as well.
    Craig was a pleasure to work with. He is very responsive at all times and is always willing to go the extra mile. As a first time home buyer he made everything very easy for us. I highly recommend him and will use him again!
    I honestly could not recommend a better realtor that Craig. He made us feel as if we were his only client. He is honest, hardworking, fast, and efficient. He was born to do this job. We never felt lost or confused, he walked us through the entire procedure of buying our first home. He was extremely prompt getting back to us whenever we had questions. I sincerely hope that anyone buying or selling a house has a chance to work with someone as enthusiastic and reliable as Craig Heinonen.
    Craig and Chelsey were great to work with! They are very knowledgeable about what they do from start to finish. They provide a customer service level that is hard to find today! They were quick to respond to questions and kept me informed throughout the process of selling my home. If you are looking for a real estate agent that you can count on look no further!
    We had a positive selling experience with Craig. He marketed our listing very well and responded promptly to any questions we had. We are happy we chose to list our home with him!
    Talk about going the extra mile, Craig is extremely dedicated. He was very quick to respond to our messages and always answered his phone. had our house pending in less than 24 hours and worked tirelessly and diligently to seal the deal in our new house. He was always there for us and even after the deal has been there to answer some remaining questions. Regardless if you are buying or selling ask for his input and listen to it.
    Craig was extremely thorough, helpful, patient (with all my questions) and attentive. Craig's knowledge of the area and outstanding reputation was key in our successful purchase.
    Craig is an absolute AWESOME Realtor. He is very professional,caring, and truly knows his job inside and out. My children and I were on a time crunch to find a place for me to move to.Craig took this very seriously, and went above and beyond the call of duty. When things hit a snag and seemed to be going nowhere, Craig persisted until answers were given, and the process kept moving. I (and my children) are so very fortunate to have had Craig on our team. Thanks a million, Craig!!!
    I started browsing on Zillow because I liked the idea of not having to go through real estate agents or listings, and I've never gone through the home buying process and didn't realize just how much work and how many people would become involved. I did the research, but actually going through it all for real is a completely different reality. I was very skeptical of the role realtors play, but Craig has been a godsend in our first-time home buying process. He was efficient in the tours of the homes that we saw, he wasn't afraid to point out each flaw that he noticed, and it was during this touring phase of the process that his education in construction technology was evident. By combining the context of property taxes, nearby homes, upgrades, downgrades, etc., I felt that I had a clear sense of what it was we were getting into to. His demeanor was professional. Being thousands of miles away during this whole process, Craig was an enormous help in setting up meetings, keeping everyone informed during each of the many phases of the home buying process, and helped us when certain steps of the process were being bogged down by inefficiencies within our lender. If you are skeptical of realtors and what they do, Craig will earn your trust many times over. I don't mind the cost of closing because the service that he provided was quite worth it, and I am glad that we stuck with him through this process.
    Craig is an agent that gets you results. He is an agent that cares about his clients not only on a professional level but also on a personal level to get his clients the results that they want with a one on one attitude. Craig is what you would call a "BEST of the BEST" in a Real Estate Agent and all around great guy for dealing with professionally and on a personal level...making the process of selling or buying an exceptional and easy process...Craig cares about his clients...and he lives and works this. If you are looking for a Real Estate Agent...I would VERY HIGHLY RECOMEND...that you get CRAIG...he cares and gets results and understands / gets results for his clients....its that ONE on ONE attitude of HIS. I am very pleased that I retained Craig Heinonen for the listing and selling of the property and the results he gets in such a short period of time as compared to other Real Estate Agents.
    Craig is a very motivated agent. We had talked to many agents regarding properties and when we reached out to Craig, he was the only one who got us the answers we needed and he did it very quickly. Because of him, we now own a beautiful piece of lakefront property. Thank you Craig for being so efficient, organized, thorough and professional, and also for making this transaction so enjoyable. You're awesome to work with and we will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for an agent!!
    Craig was very helpful in every process of home buying. He always answered me quick whenever I had questions, or knew how to get the answer for me. It had been a long process of finding the right home, and Craig was patient with me the whole way. Would absolutely recommend him as a top notch realtor!
    Craig did an amazing job and worked VERY hard to accommodate a property purchase while my wife and I worked hundreds of miles away. Craig did an amazing job of sourcing properties, contacting the listing agent and negotiating though the waters which were even choppy at times. As the property of our lifetime was being negotiated on, it appeared that the deal was going to fall through. Craig worked with the listing agent, the sellers and us as his clients and was able to mediate and make it all come together. I truly believe that a less dedicated servant leader would have had the deal fall through but not Craig. He is an asset to his company, the profession of real estate and to his customer both internal and external. Thank you for all you do Craig and you have made my wife and I loyal customers to you and the brand you represent! Masterful!
    My experience with Craig was very positive. He takes whatever time you need to talk and does not rush you. He provides paperwork and explains the market value of your home. He shows you comparisons of similar homes. He explains the breakdown of how much it will cost to close on your house.
    Craig is exceptional realtor. Though our road was long and rocky with glitches along the way, Craig was patient and persistent for my husband and I. We started our journey with him in June 2017 for a house that we did not end up buying, but he was ready and eager for the house we did purchase in May of 2018. He is thorough, personable, and very professional all in one. He makes the whole process smooth and easy. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs a down-to-earth yet professional agent to represent them!!! Many thanks to him for all of his help!!
    Craig has been so helpful and enthusiastic when selling my home! He is very motivated and always available to answer my questions. I highly recommend him as your realtor!
    The best of the best! Craig took over our two listings with energy and enthusiasm! He was out immediately when called and with using the latest to f technology, 3D insight, flying drone over property and beautiful pictures, he presented our property to the utmost. He sold both properties within a couple of days of each other! He comes in with energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, professionalism and integrity! He is the best out there in young professionals and his record proves it. I would single him out over and again. His genuine likeability and personality will have you at first conversation! Hes the man!
    Very likable guy with a lot of knowledge. Always kept us in the loop with everything going on and would even go out of his way to help up us! Made first time home buying a lot easier than expected and would definitely go through him again if given the chance! I would also recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their house! Overall 10/10!!!
    Craig took over our listing from another realtor in his office who was leaving he was a great guy young energetic, did a great Aireal view of our home loved it. He is quick to respond to phone and email messages he knows the upper peninsula well.
    Craig was really helpful in our search to find our first home. Being first time home buyers we didn't know much about the process and he was very knowledgeable and was able to provide insight on the whole process. Craig was always prepared and provided us with answers to any question we had about a piece of real estate. If you are looking to buy or sell I would highly recommend using him. He will be straight forward and honest with you!
    Craig Heinonen was extremely enthusiastic and willing to help me with everything I needed while I was in the process of purchasing my land. He was always available at any time of the day to answer any questions I had and he really pushed for the process to get done as quickly and smoothly as possible. I wouldn't even consider going with any other agent in my future real estate dealings.
    From the time we first met with Craig to the day our house sold we had an excellent experience working with him. Craig is a motivated and inspired real estate professional who is fully engaged in the real estate business. He has a passion and drive for what he does and he does his absolute best to sell your house. We would recommend him to everyone who is looking at buying or selling!
    We worked with Craig to both buy and sell a home. He is an excellent realtor and a pleasure to work with. He is extremely responsive, was always willing to travel long distances on short notice for showings, and goes the extra mile in general. We would recommend Craig without hesitation.
    Three years ago, before we took our house off the market to make improvements and upgrades, Craig toured our home on behalf of absentee clients. The questions he asked then were excellent and we asked him to leave his card; we saved that card knowing that when we re-listed, he would be our realtor of choice. Three years later with our house sold and a permanent relocation out West, we can unequivocally say that Craig is a winner. He is an affable fellow, has a degree in construction management so can make informed suggestions on things to improve pre-sale, has the latest equipment to present your home and grounds in the best light (e.g., panoramic camera, drone for aerial footage), has a huge marketing network locally and out of state (e.g., USAA network of military buyers, retired and active), and is a local who is familiar with the entire Upper Peninsula area. The only area of improvement we can see for Craig is that he needs to develop a network of service/repair providers who can assist with such things as gutter cleaning, painting, and the like. We trust that this state of affairs will auto correct as Craig continues to develop in his young (though already award-winning) career as a realtor. Remember this: Instead of selling himself to you as your realtor of choice, Craig will sell your home. He will not disappoint.
    Never ended up buying a home with Craig as we moved out of the area but we looked at a lot and he was great. Very responsive, understanding, available, knowledgeable, etc. and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is in the market.
    Craig was professional. He was honest and supportive. He offered advice when solicited. Craig was consistently available. He also used technology to make the sale of our home quick and efficient. I would recommend Craig without reservation.
    Craig is driven, he worked hard to sell our house when others just coasted.Craig was thorough with his initial walk thru getting a lot of pics and came back and added more after the fact. He is Very friendly and courteous,I will be working with him again !
    Craig went above and beyond to get us into our forever home in our dream location! His recommendations for financing and home inspection also made everything much easier on me and my husband.
    Craig was always available to us at any time of day. He got us in to see every house we had interest in within the next day. He also kept a close eye on new listings and made us aware when he thought we might have interest in one. In fact the house we bought was listed in the morning l, he let us know about it right away and got us in to see it by 1pm. He then had an offer out to the seller by that evening. We will definitely be using Craig again in the future!
    Craig is very ambitious and will fight for you whether you're selling or buying! In my experiences with Craig, everything was done exactly as he said it would be and he was great about keeping me updated regularly.
    We really enjoyed working with Craig. He was very responsive when we had questions or concerns. Craig gave us good information about the property to help us make our decision to buy it. He was available for walk throughs whenever we wanted them. When the closing had to be adjusted, he even followed up with that bringing us a check in person.
    Craig continued to work hard for us to get our property sold even though the market was slow and the property was somewhat difficult to sell. He gave us direction and advice when we needed it to keep the property price and the listing attractive to buyers.
    Very great at his job! Knows how to make a first time home buyer more comfortable, and relaxed through the whole process. I would highly recommend him to everyone I know.
    Craig is very passionate and excited about what he does. He is very attentive and makes the home buying process stress free. I would recommend Craig to anyone looking for a realtor.
    Craig was very helpful and always available when we needed him. He worked hard to get us the best deal. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.
    Craig helped us get into exactly the right house for our family. He went way above and beyond to help us. Craig was very responsive and represented us well in negotiations. It was a great experience all around.
    Craig did an excellent job while we were purchasing our first home. He always made time for us when we wanted to look at a house. He was always available to answer our questions. If he was not available or could not answer a question, he got back to us in a timely matter. Craig made our first home purchase go smoothly. He was in touch with our bank and the other realtor selling the house. He kept everybody on track and provided us with updates throughout the process. I highly recommend Craig to anyone looking to buy a house or property.
    We had a GREAT experience with Craig as our realtor. He was very knowledgeable and helped us find the right home, for the right price in a competitive market. He made himself available as much as possible and worked around our schedule. He showed us many homes and repeatedly told us that he would always show us a home, even if it was a long shot, and that we were NOT wasting his time. He made us feel comfortable with the big decision we were making. Once we found the right home he helped us move on it quickly. The entire process was smooth and fluid. I WILL be using Craig in the future for my real estate needs.
    My experience with Craig was very kind, friendly and professional. He was very prompt to help look for a home that fit me and my family's needs. We are a family of five and have pets so not any home would do. He was always very ambitious on setting up many different showings of many homes and if those didn't work he was ready for the challenge to find our family a list of new homes to look at soon after until we found our home that we are all very happy with that we all can call our "New" home:)
    Craig has been a wonderful professional to work with in the purchase of our first home. We were completely new to the process and he was exceptional in guiding us from just beginning to look at homes all the way through to after the sale. Purchasing a home was an intimidating prospect for us, and his in depth knowledge of all the different options available to us, always prompt responses to any of our questions or concerns, consistently keeping us informed with the different properties we were interested in, and holding our hands through the negotiation and closing of our first home made the experience an incredible one. We cannot recommend him enough for giving us such a positive home buying experience when it can so often be a very stressful time in anyone's life, and we look forward to working with Craig when we are ready to buy/sell again. Thank you!! :)
    Craig is a wonderful professional to work with! Craig put a great deal of time and attention into selling our rental house. The pictures he took of our house were some of the best realtor photos I have seen and showed the house to its best advantage. He kept us informed of interest and showings on the house and even helped with last-minute to-dos on the house when it came time to sell! Craig went above and beyond his duties as a realtor to make sure our needs were met and the house was SOLD!
    Craig was very helpful throughout the process of selling our home. He was available for questions at each step of the process. He was patient with our questions. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy or sell.
    Craig was very professional and was always quick to respond when any questions came up. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market that is buying or selling a home. Overall just a great guy to work with.
    We had a great experience with Craig - he is friendly, honest and down to earth! We were in the process of moving across country when we met Craig in Marquette. He contacted his agency in the area we were moving and got us set up with a great realtor, who immediately began our house search. We moved several months after meeting Craig, but he has keep in touch with us since and made sure our search was going smoothly. Now almost a year later we bought a house and are moving in. Thanks to Craig for getting us set up here - we highly recommend him!
    Craig is very motivated and knowledgeable of the whole house buying process and made buying our house extremely easy. He always kept us up to date on any progress being made on our purchase and since it was my first time buying a house he was extremely helpful explaining all the nessesary steps. I would recommend Craig to anyone who is looking at buying a house.
    Outstanding agent! Very motivated, professional and knowledgeable. Would use again in a heartbeat. Got our deal closed fast and made the house buying process feel very easy.
    Craig made buying a home feel easy!! He went above and beyond to find out about the property for us in regards to the septic and well. He was in constant contact and always updated us in a timely manner. I have no complaints and we would recommend him without hesitation.
    Craig has been very helpful in my search for the perfect house. Although I have not purchased a house yet, he has found and shown me many great houses that have met and exceeded my criteria. He can get you into see houses quickly, has excellent communication, and truly wants to get you into the house that is right for you. I would recommend Craig to anyone.
    I cannot say enough great things about Craig. He's easy to get along with, professional, and always on the hunt for information. He communicated quickly and was always a "yes" kind of guy. He has a youthful energy and enthusiasm that really carries the day. or many days, as it was for us. My wife and I really enjoyed working with him as our buyer's agent, and we would certainly be excited to work with him if and when we sell.
    From start to finish, Craig couldnt have made buying and selling our houses anymore stress-free. From constant communication to ensure we knew why was happening, what we needed to do next, etc. Craig was constantly working in our favor and made our house look beautiful to sell. I would recommend Craig to anyone in the market. He is available 24/7 and has so much knowledge. Thank you Craig!!!!

    We absolutely loved working with Craig! Would recommend him to everyone. He was extremely helpful and very patient with us during our buying process! We trusted him 100% when he would give his opinion on houses we looked at. We never felt like a bother with all of our questions and he was very quick to respond and easy to contact. We will definitely be using him for any future buying and selling!
    Craig made the buying process very easy for us. He was very responsive getting back to us with our questions even if it was late at night or on a weekend. He made accommodations that fit our schedule. When I am ready to list my home, I will definitely be calling Craig!
    I would highly recommend Craig to be your realtor. He loves what he does and it shows! Craig was very personable and organized. He was very knowledgeable about everything. He knows his market, homes, and the entire buying and selling process. We really appreciated him during the entire course of purchasing our first home. During the viewing process he was able to quickly set up viewings for us and provided great insight on each home. When we put in an offer he helped us to negotiate with the seller smoothly. As we moved on to the purchasing process he was always there to provide insight on all the different things that can and do happen. He supported us each step of the way. We cannot thank him enough for helping us to find our home. Thank You Craig!
    Craig is a great guy who is very responsive and a very good agent who successfully helped me sell my home when ithers could not.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@@!!!!!!
    Craig is extremely knowledgeable and efficient and works diligently. He was also extremely thoughtful and sensitive to any questions or concerns that I had and answered me immediately whenever I had questions or concerns. I knew that I would hear from him almost immediately whenever I had a question no matter what the question or concern was. He is outstanding at his job and extremely humane in how he worked with me, freeing me from worry and answering my questions no matter what they were.
    Craig did a wonderful job of listing and selling our home for us! He did an excellent job of presenting our home to potential buyers, and we had an accepted offer within the first week of listing! If you are looking for a professional agent who is willing to go the extra mile for you, look no further, and give Craig Heinonen a call!
    My husband and I just recently purchased out of state home with Craig's help . We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end! He has great knowledge and really did keep us up to date every step of the way. Went above and beyond! Highly recommended!
    Craig has certainly earned the title of "Your Realtor for the 906" I don't know how he does it but he works the whole UP all at once and his response time is excellent! If you want things to happen, Craig is surely the one to see to it that it does. Thank You Craig for your help with selling our home and now again being there to take us through the next step!
    I can't think of a better person to work with throughout the home buying or selling process. Craig helped us purchase our first home and completed the sale of our home with incredible professionalism!
    Craig was very helpful in making our property look it's best. He is very knowledgeable on the details of the transactions, and helped us craft good responses. When we'd have questions, his responses were typically quick. Craig found buyers we couldn't find for sale by owner, and brought 3 offers from his listing, ultimately getting the job done.
    Craig has been a pleasure to work with. He was so patient with us while we working through all the listings and responding to every question we had with in-depth, insightful and detailed answers. We are confident with our home choice thanks to Craig.
    My husband and I contacted Craig and asked him to be our agent as we pursued the purchase of a home. He was immediately responsive, totally knowledgeable of the process, and has abundant local contacts. He also spent considerable time digging up property information and documentation so that we could be fully informed about the property in question. His extensive local and regional experience provided him with a good finger on the pulse of the market. In the end, after negotiations, the sellers were not willing to accommodate a show-stopper request on our part (related to septic repairs). Thus, we did not close on the property, but in the future we fully intend to work with Craig again, and would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell in the UP.
    I found Craig to be helpful and personable in all aspects of my experience selling my Camp property. He is friendly, knowledgeable and serious about his role as a realtor. His initial presentation was extensive and impressive and all subsequent dealings lived up to the same standard. I would recommend Craig in a heartbeat!
    Very friendly and outgoing. Definitely a "people person". Highly responsive to questions. Offered good advice. Marketed our properties so they seemed desirable. Was definitely the sellers' agent that we needed. Would highly recommend him.
    Craig was very professional and knowledgeable about what our property was worth and how and who to market it towards. Craig is willing to go the extra mile for his clients no matter what the value of the sale is worth. Looking forward to working with Craig again in the feature!
    As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about the market, the home buying process, and of course each house we looked at. Craig's upbeat personality and positive attitude were relentless. He was very responsive to our questions and always made us feel like we were his top priority, making the entire process easier for us. We would definitely recommend Craig to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
    I would highly recommend Craig! He is energetic and professional. Craig always answers questions promptly. If ever we had questions he figured them out for us. Craig went above and beyond my expectations. His photos and virtual walkthrough was amazing. Between his professionalism and online presentation is what sold our house. He worked around our schedule and met our needs. I would use him again if we sell again.
    I would highly recommend Craig for any real estate transaction. He was sensitive to our needs, knowledgeable and efficient. Craig responded to questions and correspondence within the day. He works tirelessly on behalf of his clients and you just wont meet a nicer guy. Thank you Craig for all your help!
