Listed home, but didn't sell
Creig is one of the most well know agents in Howard County. You see his listing signs all over the place when you drive around. That's why we decided to have him list our house and experience the magic of a power seller. But here is what will happen if you try to list your house with Creig. You will only see him once, at the time he comes in to have you sign the contract. You will then list the house. Within a week, he will ask you to lower your listing price by $25K, the listing price that he helped you set in the first place. If the house doesn't go. He will ask you to lower the listing price again, and again, and again until the house sells or you can't take it anymore and decided to stop. Creig gets hundreds of listings under his name, so he doesn't really care if any particular property sells or not. He also doesn't care if you get a fair price for your house or not, as long as it's sold. His magic as a power seller is deep discount (at your expense of course). You see, that's smart business strategy for a busy real estate agent. But it's not so great for the house seller. Oh, did I mention that our house was never sold with Creig? If you don't believe me, try to hire Creig and find out for yourself. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
We had 8 people and 2 dogs to move with in 50 days. We met with Amanda Marks (an agent of Craig Northrop's) at an open house, where she solicited our agent and told him how flexible her sellers were and that they were motivated to sell. Told us of a horror story with the last buyers (should have taken note of that.) Well after dealing with her we found she is a liar! We put a reasonable offer on the house, got no response the first day, then none the second day there were excuses about her client being on Percocet as to why we had received no response. Then the third day they backed out leaving us stranded and having to start our search all over knowing we were on a time crunch. This is the most unprofessional group of people I have ever worked with. If you can avoid it stay away from anything with Craig Northrop on it!!! Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Called their office inquiring for new home and also gave details of ph. no., name and email address for reply next day. But suddenly changed price and nobody cared to reply also. Too bad and rude response.

The Creig Northrop team really is #1 in MD! I made the mistake of listing my condo with another agent the first time around and wasted 3 months with him. When he told me my best option was to rent the place, I had enough and called Creig's team. At this point I was depressed and felt like my condo would never sell due to the number of listings in the complex and building issues. However, Creig came out that same day and assured me he could get the property sold and sure enough it was under contract within 10 days with settlement in 30 days. The Creig Northrop team is wonderful, professional, knowledgeable, and they get the job done. They don't let a contract fall through. I mainly worked with Michele H. and Michelle Y. and Marilyn at settlement. They were always responsive and helpful and let me know what was going on during each step of the deal. My advice to sellers is don't waste your time considering any other agent except the Northrop team. Less ... More

My agent always seemed like she was working for the buyer. Kristin harris was our agent. we were right off a major hwy and I had to ask for signs to be posted. Lived in the house for 20 years I know what other agents did with signs. They finally put some up and they lasted about six weeks. Never put any more up. As a buyer I look for those signs and found my new home which was 3 times more then the price of my old home. Sorry craig but you lost $$$ on that commission of my purchase because I didn't use your team. We also had an open house and when we left 20 min before the agent showed up and no signs were posted and my neighbour even said no signs were posted anywhere. Luckly my house did sell. Never got anything in mail congratulating us or really a thank u from her. Glad this is behind us. If your looking a agent be careful Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
We had another realtor before we called Craig Northrup. Bob Lucido was a total waste of time. The pictures they took were lousy, prep lousy, result : 4 months then we saw them to drop the price. Craig Northrup - total opposite. He came in our home, told us to pack. Open house 2 days later - contract within one week for full price - cash- 30 day close. We had to ask buyers for more time to get packed. He knows his market, his business and internet marketing. Photos were great, brochures terrific. Turns out there were lots left over. He knows his stuff. Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
I did the mistake of choosing Creig Northrop while selling my house. Mike Clevenger was assigned as my agent. Mike is not a professional person at all, he was not reachable (always on vacation), he didn't care about any details, his ignorance costed me couple thousand dollars (on top of his commission) and the whole process was painful. I talked to Creig Northrop about him after the transaction (Creig is listed as my agent). He said he cannot do anything about it. I strongly suggest not signing any contract with Creig that you cannot back out. Once they sign you in, they think they are entitled to act anyway they like. Less ... More

Sold our house in a tough market and a less than desirable location on top of a major highway in 60 days. Any homeowner needs to partner with the agent to get this done. They put forth outstanding brochures and marketing. Great great job. They even agreed to reduced to commission % due to the tight budget and $ amount we had to get on the home to move. I would go with this group again to sell our home. Keep in mind - Creig Northrop is probably not going to sell your house himself. It doesn't work that way - but his group has all the tools to move a house in a tough market. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We discussed selling our home. The response was immediate, and we had an agent here the next day. She was professional and well-prepared. If we move forward with the sale, Creig's agency will be our listing agent.

Listed home, but didn't sell
Would never go with Creig Northrop. The ONLY time Creig ever set foot in my home throughout 5 months of listing was the day he came in and convinced us to list our home with him. During this discussion, I specifically asked who would be the agent managing the sale of my home. He said it was himself. Again, he never entered our home again, didn't personally bring a prospective buyer, didn't personally conduct an open house and didn't come by when we informed the company we no longer wanted their services. Worst realtor experience I've ever had. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
We purchased a home in 2007 and Creig Northrup was the agent for the seller, everyone on his team was extremely responsive and helped the transaction go very smoothly.

Helped me find a home to rent
My experience with this company was very bad. I was trying to rent a house in Clarksville MD. The agent did not show up, just left a message 30 min prior to appointment. Nobody in the office knew when he will appear. The administrative assistant did not know his name and could not find anybody in the office who could help me. I left a message to the agent and in company voice machine, but nobody returned the call. Totally unprofessional and irresponsible. They treat clients like a trash. Looks like I need to serve them instead of getting any help. The house is still on the market, and I would never recommend to deal with this company. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
Under a really quick deadline to find a house, and get the contract accepted at by the seller, my agent (and the entire company) were extraordinary. They accomplished selling my house (something that no other agent had accomplished over a three year period...and then find me another in record time.

We had to sell our condo as we were in a non contingent contract with our seller. The Northrop group had it sold within a week. Never seen such professionalism and attention to detail. Our agent, Ray was the best. Thanks a million.

Showed me homes
In winter of 2008 we had a Creig Northrup agent show my wife and I a piece of property. The agent was slow to respond to any questions and when we told him we wanted to put in an offer, he delayed us until we were told that the property was sold by someone else in his office. When I complained to the office manager and to Creig Northrup I got no response at all from anybody. It was a very disappointing experience and would not use a Northrup agent nor would I recommend him.
Response fromCreig Northrop

I would like the opportunity to talk with you more about this incident so I can determine where the breakdown in communication occurred. Please call or email me as soon as possible. I look forward to speaking with you.
