Testimonials

I highly recommend Craig


"I asked Craig Delahooke from Delahooke Real Estate to search for properties with specific parameters. He was more then willing to accommodate my many requests and always returned my calls promptly. You cannot find a more professional, determined, and friendly person to work with and still have your confidentiality protected. I highly recommend Craig for his skills in property analysis and anticipation of possible challenges. He has negotiated on my behalf on several ventures and I can thoroughly recommend his services.  David Andrews, San Clemente


Over and above the call of duty


"Just wanted to say a big “thanks” for all you did for us with our home. We felt you went way over and above the call of duty time and time again!"  Anthony & Sandy Carpet, Crystal Cove


Going way beyond my expectations!


" I worked with Craig, and believe me when I say - you want him in your corner! A straight shooter with an unrivaled work ethic, Craig does not disappoint. After living in the same home for over 20 years, I had a dream of retiring in an ocean-front home in San Clemente. I had very specific criteria that was important to me and I was referred to Craig from a close friend. I have a Type-A personality and knew it would be difficult to find someone who appreciated the kind of detailed execution I was expecting. From the moment I met Craig, I recognized his authenticity and knowledge of the market and I could tell he took his job seriously. Since I live in the Los Angeles area, Craig previewed a property that met my criteria and recorded a 15 minute custom video home tour detailing all of the important features of the property. When I viewed the video, my excitement about property and confidence in Craig grew. He indicated the one challenge was that the property was a probate sale and explained that the process can me much more complicated than a traditional purchase. In addition, this probate included a lease-back contract which was the first of its kind to be tested in the Orange County court system. Craig and I then viewed the property and it was more than I had hoped for. I gave him the following instructions, "I trust you and I need you to find a way for me to get this home." After months of negotiations and several meetings with the seller's attorneys and representatives, I got my dream home. I got to see Craig first-hand develop a detailed strategy, read countless pages of legal briefs, negotiate in court and ultimately help me meet every qualification to purchase the property below the current market value. He documented every detail and updated me on a proactive basis constantly. I own several real estate properties in Southern California and I will never do another transaction without Craig by my side. Thank you for going way beyond my expectations!"  David John, San Clemente


Very happy with the service


"Craig Delahooke represented us as our realtor when we purchased a property in San Clemente, Ca in February 2014. It was a pleasure working with Craig as he demonstrated a keen understanding of our needs and a high level of professional expertise in order to ensure a successful purchase of our new investment property. Craig also was willing to contribute some of his own commission in order to have a tree removed from the adjacent property that was at the time obstructing the view from the property we ended up purchasing. We were very happy with the service we received from Craig and have consequently hired him to sell another investment property we own in Foothill Ranch, CA,"  James & Yvonne Dunworth, San Clemente


We would highly recommend Craig


"When we interviewed agents to sell our home our desire was to find a professional with integrity, excellent communication skills, market knowledge, technical expertise, persistence, positive attitude, and a real joy for helping others. Craig Delahooke was right beside us every step of the way in helping us navigate what turned out to be a very challenging path. His ever-present positive assurance, faithfulness to his commitment, and resourcefulness in managing an ever-changing real-estate environment was the key to our mutual success. We are very grateful for everything he did for us, and we would highly recommend Craig to anyone looking for a quality agent."  Tom & Nancy Guerin, Aliso Viejo

We would not have been able to navigate through this without you


"We want to thank Craig and Berkshire Hathaway for helping us sell two homes in Alhambra. The selling process was very intense and complicated. From setting the sale prices, negotiations, marketing, disclosures, dealing with the tenants and buyers agents, we would not have been able to navigate through this without you and your broker’s guidance. We hope to continue working with you in other future transactions. Thanks!"  The Phan Family, Arcadia


Professional, knowledgable and hard-working


"We highly recommend Craig to anyone in need of a real estate agent. He is extremely professional, knowledgable and hard-working, and truly excels in his field as he is adept at handling the full gamut of real estate needs. What really sets Craig apart from other real estate agents, though, are his integrity, honesty and character, which are of the utmost level. He is a pleasure to work with, and he truly has a servant's heart. Craig went above and beyond for us and we are so thankful to have had to the opportunity to work with him. Look no further - you've found your agent!"  Kyle & Katie, Cypress


Craig went above and beyond


"My wife and I have bought and sold several houses over our 30 years of marriage. Never before did we have a Real Estate agent who was more professional and hard working than Craig Delahooke. He worked hard to market our house which sold for full price within a week. He also made himself available to us night and day to respond to any questions we had. In our experience, Craig went above and beyond what was expected of a real estate agent. Working with Craig was truly a fantastic experience! Thank You Craig!"  Chris & Leslie Huscher, La Cresta


I was extremely impressed


"I was extremely impressed with Craig's attention to detail. From the beginning of negotiations with the seller, to the final close of escrow, Craig really had my best interest at heart. Craig's knowledge in the coastal communities was something I truly relied on during my search for the right home. Craig found me exactly what I was looking for and negotiated a win-win for me and the seller. I will definitely use him, and refer him to others, in the future."  Scott & Anita Hadley, San Clemente


Ethical


"I have had the privilege to work closely with Craig for several years on multi-million dollar development projects. What makes Craig unique is the level of research and thought he puts into his profession. Because of this, his effectiveness to manage a project to fruition is remarkable. He is a natural teacher and truly enjoys helping others. His work ethic has always been an inspiration to those he works with. Craig is as ethical a man as I have ever known, resulting in personal as well as public integrity. I highly recommend him!"  Jeff Golden, Sales Manager - The Strand at Headlands
