    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $275K in Gaylord, MI.
    Craig is the best realtor we have every worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable and very responsive. We could not have asked for a better person to help us buy our home and it was a long search after our move across the country. Being new to the area we had so many questions and Craig had the answers. He was very professional and kind. I highly highly recommend him and plan on working with im again for any real estate needs.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $125K in Topinabee, MI.
    With a family of 7, we needed to be in a house quickly, especially with us being in a 3 bedroom apartment. We felt like we were going to burst at the seams. Craig was respectful and timely. He speaks to you as if you are a friend! He has so much knowledge and background that makes him perfect for every person looking for a home. We are so grateful we found him!!

    Bought a home in 2018 in Clarion, Boyne Falls, MI 49713.
    Where to begin? Craig was absolutely amazing! He responded quickly to every call, text or message when we either had questions or a house that we wanted to look at. He worked around our schedules as much as possible. His honesty and knowledge of building was also a plus! My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Craig!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Harbor Springs, MI.
    Craig was an extremely professional realtor. We live 4 hours from the property we purchased, so we relied on Craig heavily to coordinate many aspects of the purchase. His experience as a professional builder also came in handy as we viewed potential properties in terms of knowing what would we easy fixes and what would not. Overall, we had a very positive experience with Craig and would recommend him to others in search of a realtor in this area.

    Bought a home in 2018 for approximately $275K.
    Craig Lively is an exceptional real estate agent. My wife and I recently moved up to Petoskey from the Detroit area. We made four trips here during the course of our search and Craig was amazingly helpful in finding us homes which met our criteria and budget. Craig was not a high pressure salesman at all which we appreciated. Rather, he was patient, informative, quick to respond to inquiries and made us feel quite at ease throughout the entire home-buying process. His background as a home builder was especially helpful as he was able to point out various architectural features of any given home. Craig has lived in Petoskey for many years and is familiar with numerous communities in northwest Michigan. I highly recommend Craig Lively to anyone looking to relocate to northern Michigan and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again should we have future real estate needs.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $125K in Petoskey, MI.
    He sold our house after several other realtors had tried. He was able to sell out house at a price that we were hoping to get for it. I am recommending Craig to anyone who needs to sell their house.

    Bought a home in 2016 in Pellston, MI.
    Craig handled a property purchase for me and he was very professional and handled all aspects of the sale/purchase in a timey manner. Craig was the listing agent for vacant acreage in Center Twp Mich. Emmet County.

    Thanks Craig.

    Sold a home in 2014 in Alba, MI.
    I used Craig on a more unique property that required a particular buyer. Before I even listed the property with him he brought the buyer and we were immediately able to close. Regardless if you are the traditional home buyer or seller, or have a more unique or investment type property, I highly recommend Craig. He has personal experience with all classes of property and knows how to be creative when it makes sense.
