Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA
“First of all its worth mentioning that we are a young’ish couple (early 30s), first time buyers and really had no idea of what the process would look like. We were also trying to buy in the very fast pace and not easily navigable San Diego residential market. Needless to say, we couldn’t have been luckier to connect with the Lotzof brothers to guide us through the home buying experience. A few highlights from our experience: – They were patient with us through the entire process, which ended up lasting more than a year – They were knowledgeable about many markets within San Diego – They learned about our wants and adapted as we changed our minds along the way – They were experts and very strong negotiators – They made sure we were taken care of by all parties involved (lender, inspector, HOA, etc.); they still stay in touch to make sure we are taken care of Above all else, I’d recommend Marc and Craig for their trust-worthiness, attention to detail and look forward to working with them in the future. Thanks again”

Bought a condo home in 2017 in Sierra Mesa, San Diego, CA
“Craig did a great job with the purchase of our new home. He was always available and the process was clear and organized. I would definitely use his services again.”
“We felt confident in Craig Lotzof’s impeccable knowledge of real estate during our purchase, and then sale of our home . From the beginning through closing of our purchase, we trusted Craig implicitly. His business acumen and excellent customer service is unprecedented – it’s a rare commodity these days. Pacific Sotheby’s is fortunate to have such a professional individual represent them. He’s a kind, compassionate man with a “great heart and soul.” In Craig’s absence, Marc was also outstanding; in fact entire staff was exceptional during our contact with them. I particularly appreciated Craig’s integrity during our search for a home. He knew what we were looking for, made us aware of any flaws in potential houses, and steered us in the right direction. We never felt pressured during our search with Craig and he was determined to find the perfect home for us. When we chose to sell the home, Craig was only agent we wanted to handle the sale.”
“Professionals in every aspect – Craig never lowers the intensity level and has a team to deliver the highest quality experience. He does his research to know if you are selling or buying at the right price and is very detail oriented. We have had experience with others in the area – none said what they did, and then did what they said like Craig and his team. Recommend in a heartbeat.”
“Craig is an amazing real estate agent and a true mentsch. He’s incredibly hard-working, smart, creative, responsive, and sensitive to his clients’ needs. Over the course of 10 years, we’ve bought and sold our house with Craig, and almost bought another one with him, and every time he has applied his considerable experience, his knowledge of the La Jolla market, his strong and cordial relationships with other agents, and his aggressive but friendly negotiating approach to all of these opportunities. He knows how to thread the needle to get through challenging circumstances, and he excels at helping his clients achieve their goals. Most importantly, he’s a man of integrity who keeps his promises. It’s been a true pleasure working with Craig and we couldn’t possibly recommend his any more strongly.”
“We interviewed Marc Lotzof as one of 5 potential realtors to sell our dad’s home. The group was comprised of very high caliber agents and the decision to work with Marc and The Lotzof Group did not come easily. We were EXTREMELY pleased with the decision and the experience. Marc and his team are caring and highly competent professionals who strive to perform above expectations! Dad’s home sold in less than 3 weeks and sold above listing which was priced at the high end of the market. Marc was able to employ negotiating skills which delivered this price. Closing was smooth and follow up during the entire process was exceptional, with Marc keeping in constant communication. Response was nearly immediate which was impressive and appreciated. We would HIGHLY recommend The Lotzof Group to anyone selling in the La Jolla market.”
“Craig did a fantastic job for us finding our home on the California coast. Craig listens to you to learn what is important in the home you are searching for. Craig showed us what was on the market that fit our criteria. Once we found the right home, Craig help negotiate a great price and when above and beyond with his due diligence to make sure we were making an informed buy and that we understood exactly what we were getting.
We couldn’t recommend Craig enough to anyone looking for a home in the areas represents.”
“They were professional and extremely attentive and responsive. They had an uncanny knowledge of the area and of the potential buyer pool. They were able to give us excellent advise and guided us through the negotiating process beautifully. We are extremely happy with the result. They went above and beyond in helping to coordinate whatever needed to be done on the property (we were not living there and so we were not always able to see to things ourselves). We would not hesitate to recommend them to represent someone (as either a buyer or a seller). If we have need of realtors in the future, they would be our first choice”

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.
“Craig was very professional and helped us sell our house while we are living abroad. He is very knowledgeable about the area and gave 100% of his time and expertise to helping sell our house.”
“When we decided to put our home on the market we wanted to find just the right agency that could represent all our needs. We could not be more happier with our choice of Craig Lotzof. His expertise in the housing market helped us determine the right path to selling our home efficiently with the best financial outcome. Craig and his team were always on top of every situation in making our home sale quick and easy.
I easily recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their home!”
“CWe just closed on our first home. Craig Lotzof was our realtor. From our very first meet and greet session with Craig he was always available-meeting us at locations of our choice and at a time convenient to us. He listened to our requirements carefully, this was reflected in the MLS searches he forwarded us, as opposed to other agents who were interested in our business and sent us everything in our price range. He was very knowledgeable regarding the area we were interested in and did not hesitate in contacting agents about previously listed properties that were inactive at the time and going the extra length in letting us know all of our options.
When you work with Craig you also have access to his excellent back office staff(Thank you Edna !) who worked very hard in making our entire transition from buyers to homeowners truly seamless. They converted documents via docusign which allowed my husband who was travelling overseas on business to complete his end of the endless documentation that a mortgage acquisition demands. We never had to go in to sign a single document and didn’t have to take a single day off of work to close our loan. He made it a point to connect with our mortgage lender and kept track of all deadlines personally. Because of his excellent follow up all paperwork was completed almost 10 days before closing.
He didn’t stop there. He brought on the best people to oversee our home inspection, pest control and repairs and left us with excellent contacts who are now getting us through minor renovation and remodeling projects.
He is approachable and available (by text, whatsapp, email and phone!) and almost too good to be real-tor! Above all he is an honest man. It is reflected in his persona, in his dealings, in the confidence with which he takes you through a deal or discussion. It is his most endearing trait and simplifies any interaction with him. He will tell you exactly what he thinks of a deal to equip you with the knowledge to make a good decision.
For first time home buyers like us he was a god send. We would confidently recommend Craig to our friends and Family. Thank you Craig !”
“To Whom It May Concern,
We have never bought a home from people we have just met within two weeks,after having met them in an “OPEN HAUSE”. The Lotzofs are
text book streight forward agents and rare species nowadays.”
