We were downsizing and my wife remembered Craig coming to her (North Whitehall Township Building) office and was impressed with his demeanor and professionalism in locating information on a property he was working on for his client. When we reached out for his services, we were greatly impressed. He was very helpful, always responding to our calls and text messages promptly. When we had to unearth the septic tank lid (for an inspection), he showed up, came out in the backyard and even started digging himself. This man is so kind, considerate, could not find a more competent person to help you through your real estate transaction. Great family man who has all his priorities in the right place. We have already recommended him to some of our friends. Thanks Craig, you made such a difference.

Craig was wonderful to work with and was very professional. He offered sound advice regarding the pricing for our home and any changes that should be made to make our home show worthy. We found Craig to be honest and always willing to go above and beyond to help us during the selling process. He was at all of our showings and handled the many questions during the showings with accuracy and professionalism. We would recommend him as a Realtor to any of our friends and family. We did- and he sold my in-laws’ home as well.

We recently put up our home for sale which we had lived in for 31 years. Being out of the market so long and having a rather large custom home (5000 sq/ft), I needed a professional to work with to help us get the most for our unique home. Luckily I found Craig and he educated us on market conditions and developed an excellent marketing plan. He also stayed in communication with us constantly. We made our sale in 30 days and the transaction was simple and very easy and friendly. Thank you, Craig!

My husband and I worked with Craig on the purchase of our new home in Pennsylvania. We weren’t from the area and Craig was extremely helpful in helping us to find all the vendors that we needed to assist us in completing the sale ranging from an extremely competent real estate attorney to a fastidious inspector — everyone that he recommended was excellent. In addition, Craig was terrific in navigating things with our seller through some of the stickier situations. Finally, Craig continues to help us as we navigate our new community pointing us in the right directions for both the important (best hospital) and mundane (good restaurants, etc.) things. We can recommend Craig wholeheartedly!
-Purchased 175 River Road, New Ringgold (Blue Mountain Estate)
We have worked with a number of real estate agents over the past fifty years, and we can sum up Craig Sachse by saying that he is the very BEST agent we’ve had the pleasure of working with during that time. He’s very professional, but also very down to earth. He is a great listener, but yet speaks his opinion. He’s a great communicator and always kept us regularly informed and updated on the activity of our listing. He knows the real estate market and does not ‘blue sky’ your expectations as many do within the industry. He has a very likable personality, and as a result we have developed a great friendship working with him. Above all else, Craig did a remarkable job marketing our unique property. As they say ‘Marketing is Everything’- and Craig was relentless in his efforts to market our home both regionally and far beyond. When a buyer would come on the scene Craig properly handled the conversations and negotiations either with the buyers’ broker or directly with the buyer in order to get our home sold. We should add that Craig dealt directly with the buyer who ultimately purchased our home, and we did not deal with another broker. It takes a uniquely-skilled agent to handle this, and we can assure you that Craig contractually represented us and our interests properly during the entire process and with the highest standards. We highly recommend Craig as we have done with our friends. It was not a surprise when we heard that he helped our friends sell their homes as well.

Craig represented us in selling our unique home in New Ringgold- Kittatinny Manor, and he also assisted us in the purchase of our new home near Reading. He is a "one of a kind" Realtor who truly cares about his clients. He is knowledgeable, professional and a truly wonderful agent. He always responded quickly to our questions and helped to guide us through the process. We highly recommend him to anyone!

We chose Craig as our agent for the sale of our home and we were so pleased with everything he did for us! He guided us through the process with such ease and care. We received an offer within 24 hours but that was just the beginning of the process. At each step of the sale from listing and inspection to closing and all communication in between Craig was there for us with his professionalism and expertise. He contacted us on a regular basis with updates and returned our calls within hours (often in minutes). His demeanor was always kind and caring. His responses to our questions were always concise and informative. We cannot say enough good things about his commitment to us. He is the best!

Craig Sachse is professional, patient, hard working, sincere, honest, reliable, and went the “extra mile” many times during our listing and the successful sale of our home.

It's no secret that the housing market is a scary and sometimes volatile place -- and especially intimidating for a first-time home buyer like me. If you're planning to buy a house, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Craig Sachse. Ever since our first meeting, Craig has gone above and beyond in his advice, professionalism, flexibility, and kindness to me and my family.
He helped us navigate all kinds of external challenges including the COVID situation and more than one freak weather incident. Craig also helped tailor our home-viewing plans and schedules in a way that made sense for multiple parties traveling from different areas, and counseled us when it came time to make an offer on the "right" property. Craig's excellent communication skills and availability to discuss questions and concerns was a huge asset in reducing our stress. The whole Keller Williams team was responsive and easy to work with.
Most of all, Craig looked out for our best interests through his actions and his honesty - I am so grateful to have connected with him. Craig, thank you so much -- I love my new home!
-Purchased 3412 Bridlepath Road, Palmer Twp.
After our first meeting with Craig we immediately knew we wanted to work with him as we set out to sell our home. Craig is a genuinely kind and caring person who is very knowledgeable about real estate and he works diligently for his clients. He always responds quickly and is eager to help with issues that arise along the way. We would highly recommend Craig.

-Sold 450 Eisenhower Drive, Orwigsburg
Craig is truly remarkable. His knowledge, professionalism, insights, and energy helped our family achieve the best possible results, in spite of a daunting situation. Toward the end of 2020, we needed to quickly sell the home of our aging parent in failing health, who was the legal owner of the property, and who was quarantined in a nearby assisted living facility.
Fortunately, Craig was undaunted. The sale of the property could have easily been hampered by Covid-19, and was made unusually complex by power of attorney arrangements, unanticipated rules and paperwork, the fact that our remaining family members all lived out of state, and the inability of our parent property owner to actually meet with anyone face-to-face.
But none of those issues slowed our progress toward emptying the house, finding interested buyers, and ultimately fulfilling our closing obligations. And all along the way Craig helped us move fluidly through every step and every hurdle in our home selling process. Craig was clearly a great choice, and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Thank you, Craig!

Craig is an extremely friendly and thoughtful person and that showed through in all of our dealings. He is very knowledgable in all aspects of real state and guided me to my best possible outcome for the sale of my property. He did not push me in any direction but instead guided me on my decisions and made sure that I was comfortable with all decisions made. He is pleasant and easy to work with.
-529 Ponds Edge Lane, Upper Macungie Twp.
Craig is an amazing Realtor. We trusted him to help us navigate many situations in helping us to purchase a home as we moved back to PA. We found him to be knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful. He consistently looked out for our best interests, whether they seemed significant or not. He gave us wise counsel, and considered responses to our questions.
Craig was extremely flexible, supportive, compassionate and was willing to work with us and our lender, whenever was required. He always came through for us and we called him our angel. His relentless efforts to find us the right home ended happily after sifting through many possible homes over many months.

I felt really lucky to have found Craig. He really made selling a house a surprisingly easy, pleasant experience. He guided me on possible selling cost strategies and advised on what to fix up to increase the home's value. He was there when I needed to check in with questions I had and advice I needed. The best aspect of working with him was his positive attitude & forthright advice. He truly made the whole process actually a good experience.
-Sold 6120 Daniel Street, Upper Macungie Twp.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Craig. As first-time buyers, we did not know what to expect in this crazy market, but Craig was beyond helpful. Not for a second did we feel any kind of pressure from him buying a property. He was honest, responsive, professional, and offered great advice we did not take for granted. Craig took the time to explain everything we weren't familiar with to make us more comfortable in the buying process. We honestly do not know what we would have done without his guidance and would highly recommend him. To say we were pleased is an understatement.

We feel so lucky to have found Craig as our agent as we were purchasing our first home. He kept us calm and collected during a tumultuous process as we dealt with a potential bidding war and the impact of COVID on the process. Craig and his team handled every step with professionalism, kept all parties in the loop, and we now live in our dream home. He helped us find a terrific inspector who was every bit as thorough and experienced. Craig was always available to answer questions and answer our calls in what was undoubtedly a chaotic time in the housing market. Cannot recommend him highly enough.

-Purchased 1015 Red Lane, Danville
Craig went above and beyond his expected duties to support us in our home search. We had a very limited amount of time to find our new home. Not only was there a limited window to close on a sale, it all happened over the Christmas season. Craig made himself available to look at houses from Easton, to Bangor all the way to Jim Thorpe, where we finally decided to start our new phase in life. All the while, toting around two children under two years of age. Craig's knowledge, experience in architecture, patience, and positive attitude help keep us all calm, collected and informed. We would, without a second thought, recommend his services to anyone that asks. He made the whole experience easy, not excruciating!

-Purchased 530 Center Street, Jim Thorpe
I was looking to purchase a single-family home in need of some work as an investment property and found one of Craig's listings. I reached out to him and Craig acted as both the seller's agent and our agent. I was so incredibly impressed with his ability to draw a line between the two responsibilities given that there were some challenges with the property along the way. His out-of-the box thinking got the challenges resolved and everyone was happy at the settlement table. Craig's responsiveness was incredible - I was traveling out of the country for work while we were signing some of the paperwork and managing through the issue resolutions. Craig made the whole process feel very smooth. If you are looking to purchase or sell a home, I recommend Craig without reservation. He is one of the most caring professionals I've had the pleasure to work with. I will look for my next property with Craig!
-Purchased 4618 Debbie Lane, Orefield
Craig was a true professional when helping us sell our home. He made sure we didn't leave money on the table and helped all parties execute a fair deal! He was extremely patient and communicative and truly made every effort to understand our unique situation. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and would recommend him without reservation!

Craig was AWESOME to work with in selling our home. He always stays in touch via email, text or phone call. He keeps you abreast of everything that is happening. I had dealt with other Realtors who have you sign a contract and you have to constantly chase after them to find out what's going on. With Craig it's not just about the commission. He's truly concerned about his clients and will work hard to make the best deal for them. He was with us every step of the way with the sale of our home. I highly recommend Craig to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.
Olimpia & Jack Pellegrino
-Sold 4618 Berwyn Lane, Macungie
Craig became our Realtor because he went out of his way to inquire about our off-market home for his clients who were in search of a property. This extra effort stood out to us as the type of Realtor we wanted to work for us. Someone who wouldn’t just wait for us to find a house to look at, someone who would look beyond the current listings, beyond a limited area, beyond a cookie cutter expectation of what we were looking for. He knew what we were looking for, but also knew that sometimes you find what you’re looking for in unexpected places. He made recommendations and reviewed (and RE-reviewed) listings. He was very patient with the dozens of houses we looked at and reassured us that he was with us throughout the process until we found a home. We have recommended Craig to others we know and have praised him every time we tell our “home sale and purchase” story…And it was a long story…with a happy ending!

Craig was absolutely phenomenal. We moved to Pennsylvania and had absolutely no idea what areas were good to live in or not, what we wanted in a home, or how to go about searching for options. This is where Craig came in, and he was great. Not only did he find us our home we live in now (which we love!), but he found us so many other great options and truly listened to what we had to say. He was very much our advocate through the whole process and was there for us every step of the way. He communicated very well with us, always addressed our concerns, and did everything in his power to help us. Craig really was there for us in a time of stress, and I am so grateful we met him.
-Purchased 5945 Valley Forge Drive, Coopersburg
I would recommend Craig to anyone who is selling a house. He is very honest and loyal. I've had many Realtors listing my properties for sale over the years and none of them did the work that Craig did for me. Even though the buyers were a nightmare on this property, Craig stood by me as a seller and didn't force me into anything to please the buyers just to sell the house. He worked with me to get what was fair for me and that is just what he did. He treats people the way he would want to be treated not only as a person but as a buyer or seller. If I ever sell or buy again, I will definitely hire Craig to stand by me as my Realtor.
-Sold 217 East Garrison Street, Bethlehem
Craig was very patient with us throughout the process. It took us almost 9 months of home searching. We saw more than 50 houses and some houses more than ones. Craig always gave an objective opinion about the houses, whether he thinks it is worth it or not. He never failed to lead us on no-pressure home tours in our search process. He also collaborate with us regarding financing considerations as we got more serious, representing our interests in the offer and negotiation process, and finally leading us through the closing process. He performed all of those services with comprehensive knowledge and immediate responsiveness. We are so happy that we found Craig and very highly recommending Craig to other home buyers.

My daughter moved from Los Angeles to Pennsylvania to go to nursing school. Craig had to take an inexperienced young lady around and show properties, and also protect my interests long distance. He handled our transaction with the highest professionalism, integrity, diligence, and patience. His knowledge of the local area and local housing market was a tremendous asset. We eventually purchased a home in a new development, and he even negotiated us a better price with the builder! He was present with my daughter for all the inspections and contract executions. He even helped her getting set up with utilities, mail, and even a dentist! I can't say enough about how well taken care of we felt. As a mortgage banker here in Los Angeles I deal with many Realtors on a monthly basis, and Craig is definitely one of the better ones! I HIGHLY recommend Craig.
-Purchased 5945 Valley Forge Drive, Coopersburg
We found Craig to be very clear in his explanations of the selling processes we went through and was generous with his time. I feel he went above and beyond the call of duty, for which we are grateful. All in all it was a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Craig took the time to really listen to what we said and asked questions back to us to make sure he really understood. He could paint a picture so vivid and so accurate you we he saw what we were thinking. In this day and age society is all about communication. There wasn’t a moment that I ever felt Craig didn’t respond in time. And I can’t stress how much that meant to me personally that he took the time and gave me back the information I needed when we needed it. To any serious buyers or sellers, reach out to Craig. Tell him a little about your story. You might be surprised what he can do for you. The more you share with him, the more you’ll get in return. He listened to us, and I know he’ll listen to you too. I’ve purchased four homes over the past eighteen years, and this was by far the best experience, and I attribute that to Craig’s attention to detail. He honestly cares about what he does. Craig was in our corner and should be in yours too.
-Purchased 5714 PA Rte 873, Schnecksville
Craig spent time getting to know me, my situation and my property in detail. Whether it was questions about the selling process or an "I'm worried there's been no sale" phone call he had time to listen, educate and reassure me. At no time did I feel rushed or put off in favor of another client or issue. When my house sold it was a direct result of a cordial discussion Craig had with a fellow Realtor following a previous showing of the property two months earlier. Craig made the extra effort that sold my house. I cannot recommend him more highly. Thank you Craig!

My husband and I have nothing but amazing things to say about Craig. Finding a home can be very stressful, especially when moving from Ohio to PA, but Craig honestly took the stress out of it completely. He was very responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and patient. We never once felt pressured when looking at homes. He took the time to feel out our style and was able to find us our dream home. He also made closing a breeze. I seriously never write reviews unless it’s warranted but Craig is by far is one of the best Realtors my husband and I ever worked with!
-Purchased 1511 Toursdale Drive, Palmer Twp.
It is very hard to find a Realtor who has integrity and puts clients interest first and not profit. Craig was very patient with my wife and I. He showed us about 42 houses and never once tried to recommend anything that feel below our needs. I recommend Craig and he has proven to be worthy of trust and confidence.

Craig is the epitome of a fantastic Realtor! He is always professional and personal ball, he's very responsive we never had to wait for an answer or reply from Craig he always kept in touch, he knows the market very well and gives you sound and respectful advice. He consistently went above and beyond any of my expectations while I was selling my home. He was patient yet kept on top of everything so that I don't have to worry about any of the small details. He is an absolutely wonderful realtor and the kind of wheelchair that you must have if you were buying or selling a home! I recommend Craig without any hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Craig is an honest, caring, and thorough Realtor who gets results. He maintains excellent contact with you. Researches and gives you a realistic price range to consider for your home. Has a keen eye for things you can change to stage your home better. Excellent negotiator, sold our house for a great price that we were very pleased with. He will not undercut you to sell the house more quickly. BUT he sold our house quickly even when we placed the house on sale AFTER the feeding frenzy for homes in our area. His use of technology is great. And he advertises in all the right places. Your home will get great exposure. JUST DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GIVE CRAIG A CHANCE!!! We had NO regrets in our dealings with Craig. A rare person.

I fully recommend Craig without hesitation! Not only was Craig very professional and friendly, he had a great deal of real estate knowledge and helped me determine the most bang for my buck when it came to making necessary improvements to my home prior to listing. He respectfully gave advice and suggestions but ultimately had the understanding of my own budget and needs. I was very thankful and impressed with his negotiating skills with the multiple potential buyers who were interested in putting in offers on my home. Craig stood strong and was able to get a good deal for my property. What I liked most about working with Craig was that he always made me feel that I was an important client and consistently made time to provide updates to me without my having to ask and he always responded to my emails/texts/calls immediately. I was never left wondering about anything. I am thankful for Craig's service!

Ultimately he got us the right buyer to meet our price in only 10 days! I never thought we’d sell so quickly, but I put that down to Craig. He’s also a very nice person to deal with, which is important during the stress of getting your house ready for sale. All-in-all, I’d highly recommend Craig.

-Purchased 8996 Wertman Road, Heisenberg Twp.
Craig was fantastic in getting my home sold. I am going through a very unpleasant divorce and a short sale was the only viable option other than a foreclosure. Craig took the lead in getting us assistance from a company specializing in short sales, got the property on the market as quickly as possible, and was able to keep the buyer committed to the property long after the deadline to seal the deal came and went. He was also very diplomatic in dealing with the issues that accompany a very bitter divorce. If I'm ever in a position to purchase a home in the future, Craig is my first choice!
-Sold 2460 Black Forest Drive, Coplay
There are not enough words to express how WONDERFUL Craig is! He was so helpful, patient, and honest through the process of finding our first home! He truly wants what is BEST for you. You are NOT a money sign to him... you are a human being who deserves to find what suits you best! He never tries to overlook certain issues that a home may have, and is always very vocal about things in the home that raise red flags to him. I love his honesty! He searched for many many months with us…spending countless hours showing us homes and never rushing us into one. He truly wants to see his clients in the best home possible- he doesn’t just settle. He values you and your future more than money and that alone makes him the only Realtor I will EVER work with moving forward in life. If you’re scared of the process of buying a home, GO WITH CRAIG, he makes it easy to understand and lifts any fears you may have. HE IS THE BEST. And I forever recommend Craig to anyone who is interested in BUYING OR SELLING a house!

Craig has always been quickly responsive to my calls and texts providing helpful and accurate information. Sherry, his support team member, kept us totally informed on all changes along the way. We were in good hands. His experience was important to select the selling price in a volatile market. Craig's degree in architecture was instrumental for us to make wise choices in alternatives to assist in making our home more sellable. He had contacts for quality and reasonably priced contractors and radon experts which we used and with whom we were very happy. Craig dug in and personally completed several items on the punch list to help us. At all times we were confident with Craig's professionalism and skill. We would definitely use Craig on our next transaction.
