"Craig provides the most extensive and helpful reports on lakefront properties that I have seen."


LaTanya Keith, Broker of Record for Keller Williams Realty Ann Arbor.



“Heard about Craig and Golden Drake through a referral. He became a compassionate friend who provided regular updates and took the lead on any items which required quick attention. As our eight home purchase, this experience ranked on top as a very smooth process. At the end, when the seller and their agent did not complete necessary tasks, Craig took the lead and the stress to ensure the transaction moved forward… Let’s Fish!”

“Craig provided emotional support, managed all the details and forms, hooked us up with resources to get things done (inspectors, potential buyers), and pushed folks to meet our deadline. It was very stressful for me, Craig kept me sane and patient when needed "follow the process" "one step at a time" He was always calm when I was on the edge. he kept me focused on the process and facts. Another few words he frequently used "we are right where we are supposed to be", I'm not sure if he knows how much that helped, I'm only realizing it now as I look back on everything. It was great working with all of you! Getting through three home transactions in less than 4 months is a huge feat, I've also reunited with an old friend and look forward to some fishing this summer.”

“We have finally settled into our beautiful new home. My wife and I spent over 6 months just trying to find a realtor that was more interested in our home instead of their commission. With my wife being pregnant with our first child things needed to move with a sense of urgency. Then we met Craig, we had found a property listed and asked him to show it to us. Once we started looking throughout the home Craig found mold and his words were “everyone outside, this is not the home for your family”. It was that level of professionalism and genuine concern for our family that showed us we had found our realtor. To make a long story short, for our first home we now own a lake house! 4 bedroom 2.5 bath 1850sq home, 90ft of Lake Frontage on a private lake! The best part is (yes it gets better), the home appraised for $30,000 more than what we purchased it for. Craig didn’t just find us a home; he found us a place to start a family! Thanks Craig.


B. Hyde, family business Owner, Novi, MI.



“You are awesome. Ridiculously full of knowledge about the Lakes. I have given out your name several times. Also, your name came up last night when we were at our friends Mary Beth and Greg’s house on Portage. They are thinking of buying a speed boat to pull tubers and have no idea what type is the best. They also want to be able to go through the whole chain of Lakes easily. Can you advise this for them and us in the, hopefully, near future?”


J. Price, Brighton, MI



“You did a good job of analyzing the quality of construction in a home i.e. exterior wall specs, basement foundation, grade, insulation ratings, etc., as opposed to cosmetic items. Good use of additional home construction knowledge to aid in our confidence level in choosing our builder for our home. I cannot think of anything specific you could do better.”
