Author Craig Ackerman Speaks on San Francisco Real Estate

Craig Ackerman, San Francisco Residential Realtor, Author and Speaker

Craig Ackerman

Craig Ackerman is a top-producing San Francisco Realtor with a specialty in trust home sales. He sees the traditional as-is sale as an injustice to the estate. Instead, he designed a system to prep the home, relieve the trustee’s stress, speed up the process and produce a great return.

Craig offers a dynamic presentation for Bay Area legal and financial professionals based on his 2016 book, Selling Grandma’s House – Streamlining trust home sales for San Francisco attorneys and trustees.

  • High ROI Updates – Before and after photos of the most critical prep steps
  • Financing Denied – 5 overlooked reasons trust properties can’t qualify for a mortgage
  • So Much Stuff – Securing and distributing the home’s valuable contents in days (not months)
