About Craig Masur
I have been working as a residential Real Estate Broker since 2004. I ensure that my clients are represented in their interests in buying, selling or leasing their properties ethically, honestly and effectively. My goal is a satisfied client that knows that I went above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent and would be happy and confident to refer me to their family and friends looking to buy or sell their homes.
I strive to listen to my buyer client's essential criteria in their new homes and search for proper matches. Once they find the right house, I negotiate terms so they are at or below market value and guide them through the process by setting up inspections, lenders and attorneys. One of the aspects of my position that I thrive and believe sets me apart from most is to offer advice on ways to make the homes more livable for their needs and if it even is feasible in a cost versus value realm. I am skilled at assessing whether an addition could be built or an attic can be converted to livable space and what the permitting process would be or what simply removing a wall can do to a space. As value added services, I have provided project management for rehab/repair projects for clients by setting up contractors and ensuring the job is completed on time and on budget.
For my clients that are selling their homes, I determine the most effective price to market their home by analyzing market conditions and comparable properties that have recently sold. I help them get the homes staged for sale by trying to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible which includes removing unnecessary furniture, painting and making repairs. Marketing the home includes providing high quality photos and brochures, posting to hundreds of the highest visited websites, hosting broker and public open houses and attending showings to prospective buyers.
Prior to my career in Real Estate, I was living in Summit County, Colorado working for the Town of Dillon as a Public Works Foreman where I ran crews and volunteer groups for maintaining and creating town assets including parks, trails, amphitheater, cemetery, athletic fields and landscape. I also taught skiing and snowboarding at Keystone, part of the Vail Resorts group. Additionally, I made log furniture including aspen and pine beds, dressers, benches, etc. at High Country Furniture in Breckenridge.
Upon graduating from Indiana University with a Finance degree, I worked as a Staff Accountant for a public accounting firm where I gained valuable experience performing tax and audit functions for clients.
