What Makes Craig Rutman Different?



            I am committed to keeping my clients aware of what is going on, whether it be in the in the sale of their present home or in looking for a new home.             

            If you are looking to buy a home, we will meet and discuss your needs and wants, and go over how the process of buying a home in North Carolina works. I will show you what is currently available and as we look at homes, continuously re-evaluate what you like in a home, and what you don't like of course!

Once we've found the home for you, I will take care of all the negotiations; set up the inspections, discuss the reports with you, and guide you every step of the way right up until, and then after, the closing.

If you are selling your home with me, I will call you every week to let you know how the week has progressed. We will discuss the week's showings and feedback, what else has sold or been put on the market in the neighborhood, and what is needed to bring an Offer to your home. My comprehensive and up to the minute methods of getting the word out on your home are unsurpassed.  I believe in putting my advertising dollars where they are most effective.

Once your home is under contract, I will keep you advised of all the inspection dates & reports, how the negotiations are going, and what papers and information will be needed from you for the closing attorney.


Follow Up

            I pride myself on the follow up service I provide to both my buyers and sellers alike. To me, the sale doesn't end at the closing table. I make sure all the last details are done and that you are happy in your new home.  My follow up communication with inspectors, attorneys, fellow agents, etc. is well known. I am constantly on top of the situation, doing my best to insure that everyone is doing his or her job.


Market knowledge

            Of course, all the viewing of homes in the world or marketing a home for sale doesn't do any good if I don't know what the local market is doing. I am continuously previewing new listings in the neighborhoods, keeping abreast of changes in current listings, and knowing when homes have sold, for how much and how long they've been on the market. I review the monthly stats of what the Real Estate market is doing in several counties in the Triangle, and compared to nationwide. Naturally, I share my research with you so that you can get the most home at the best price, or sell your home for the highest price possible.


I'm confidant that once you've met me, you'll want me to be part of YOUR team!
