I appreciated Craig Rathbun's expertise and professionalism in helping me sell my commercial property and buy my new home. I went through a handful of other realtors who didn't have my best interest in mind or seem to care. With Fleisher Real Estate and Property Management, I received impeccable service. Craig took the time personally to update me and I could tell that he genuinely cared. He actually made the whole process painless and exciting. I really can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend your company for anyone buying or selling a residential or commercial property.
Craig and his client closed on a hotel I had listed in 19 days. Craig knew exactly what his client needed and when he needed it. He is the most experienced and savvy commercial broker that I have worked with.
