Gordon is very responsive to answer my emails and calls. Gordon showed us multiple properties when we were looking to purchase waterfront homes. Unfortunately waterfront properties in Florida are listed even when the lake is dry! Gordon would have to take us to check out each property. Gordon is an excellent realitor and I would highly recommend him!

Gordon is friendly, personable and professional. He was remarkably responsive to showing us properties. He looked for key features and potential problem areas we would not catch. Perhaps top of the list, he negotiated an outstanding price.

My husband and I were looking for someone to sell our house, and we were very fortunate to find Gordon Crawford. From the moment we met him we felt like we had known him for a long time. He was very knowledgeable about the realastatemarket and helped us with suggestions of how to get the house ready to sell. He answered all of our concerns and kept in touch with us throughout the whole process. We had a offer within a week and closed in 15 days from the day we first met. We were amazed. I would highly recommend Mr. Crawford for anyone looking for a realtor to help them buy or sell a home. It was a huge pleasure working with him. Less ... More

Gordon was very helpful in selling my parents home in Deltona. He not only made suggestions on what I should do but how to price the home getting the most for it. After listing it took Gordon only three months to sell the house. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

From the time I began looking to purchase a home, until the time I actually made a purchase took about 6 months. During that time Gordon, showed me several homes and was helpful in a number of ways, starting with the way that he approached each home we looked at. Each property we looked at Gordon treated as if he were going to be purchasing it himself, and pointed out a number of various concerns rather than simply trying to sell me anything that caught my eye. Some things that he pointed our I myself had missed and appreciate the fact that he truly seemed to be looking out for my best interests. This was my first home purchase and I decided that I would be wise to research each step of the process thoroughly before making any decisions along the way. What I found was that no matter how much looking I did for various service providers, such as a mortgage broker, home inspector and an insurance agent, the recommendations made to me by Gordon were always very competitive in pricing and services offered as well as professional. It is quite clear to me that Gordon has earned the respect of his peers and colleagues throughout the years. I would highly recommend Gordon's broker services, and am likely to seek out his help the next time I make a real estate purchase. Less ... More

Gordon is like a good neighbor, friend or family member. He is such a great person.What I liked the most is his personal style. He is no pressure, no funny sales talk, he actually researches every possiblility of a house you are interested in from every crack inside or out and the surrounding neighborhoods, so you really feel like it is a safe purchase no surprises. He is experienced, energetic, very interesting, well spoken and a great communicator especially when it comes to negotiation, he will make sure you get the price you want, with the quality you want. He shows you several areas and towns does not just stick to one territory, he is up to date on real estate laws, and very good at helping chose a good location and most of all a real home. I just gave him my wish list of what I wanted, the price I could afford, and he did the work. We got a house better than I wished for, the kids love it, the schools are great and the location is enchanted. The best thing about Gordon Crawford is after the sale he does not forget you. He called me a couple of times to make sure all was well and offered help if we needed anything. His service referrals are top notch as well. Gordon Grawford is a realator you can trust. He is a true pal. Five star operation all the way, would buy from him again and if I ever move would use him to sell. Thank you Gordon and Donna from The Principal Real Estate Group.*****Sincerely Dr and Mrs Nierenberg Less ... More

Gordon was great. I work 70 hours a week and Gordon was willing to do what he had to with his schedule to make sure we were able to get everything done outside of my work hours. He responded quickly to my phone calls and emails and never got frustrated with all my first time home buyer type questions. I'm already looking into picking up a second property and you best believe Gordon will be my go-to-guy once again!

I was out of town and needed to work with a local Real Estate Agent to handle the selling of my mother's house. I knew the transaction would require much more service than a normal transaction of me being located in the area. I couldn't have asked for any better service than Gordon provided me in handling the transaction. He was very diligent in his communication with me all throughout the transaction, even when we ran into several issues on the buyer's mortgage side.... Gordon made sure our side had the appropriate documentation, kept communication lines open and kept on the mortgage company to ensure the transaction could close as soon as possible. Overall, I would highly recommend Gordon, especially if you are doing a transaction and live out of state. Less ... More

Gordon handled a short sale for us, which is a notoriously miserable and lengthy process, but Gordon never lost his focus or his cool. He truly had our best interest at heart every step of the way, from the very first house he showed us to the house that we now proudly call our own. I would highly recommend Gordon for any real estate need without hesitation!!

Searching for a home in 2012 felt like tip toeing in minefield with a blindfold. Diana and I were wary of dealing with the sellers and some agents. Our prayers were answered when we found Gordon Crawford, a buyers agent and a real straight shooter. Thank you, Gordon. He analyzed our situation, wants and desires. Explained potential avenues to follow and then Gordon showed us two houses. T W O ! We had been looking for months on our own and his understanding, experience and knowledge of people and property found our dream home--in our price range--in ONE day. We're late in our second month living in our new home and love it. Diana says we are here forever, which is great.... except we know this great buyers agent....

Gordon was very helpful with the First Time Home Buyer process. He never made me feel like I was asking too many questions and when the appraisal came back lower than expected, he was able to negotiate the sellers down to the appraised price. He stuck with me through the whole process. I would HIGHLY recommend Gordon to anybody trying to buy a house and if and when the time comes for me to sell I will be using him for that also!

Gordon helped us buy a second house in Deltona. Honestly, you need to look no further for an agent. His knowledge of construction, neighborhoods, repair and renovation costs is stellar. Communication is just a text away and videos are sent via youtube. The contacts he uses for inspections and all other aspects are top notch. He in on your side 110% through each step of the process.

Buying a home in Central Florida has been a dream I?ve had for many years. When I decided to pursue my dream of homeownership, I knew I had to find the right realtor. When I talked to Gordon, I immediately knew he is an excellent realtor. He?s extremely knowledgeable, patient and professional. What impressed me the most about Gordon is when showing homes to me; he would point out positive and negative features of the property and would suggest ways of handling the negative items. Any other realtor would simply show the home and not even notice items that may need maintenance. His expertise allowed me to know if a home was for me or if it would be something that would require a large amount of money invested to make it pristine. Once I found that perfect castle, the home-buying process began. There?s a great deal of coordination among different parties during this process. I never realized how much hard work, coordination, negotiation and timing was involved with this step. Gordon kept on top of everything and kept me informed of the progress. Thanks to Gordon, all the pieces came together perfectly and my dreams have come true!! Now I?m enjoying my little slice of Florida!! Linda Simpson Less ... More

I was looking for the purchase of a Condo in Lake Mary. Gordon first asked me what things were important to me and I was immediately directed towards good potential options. Since I am abroad and was unable to visit the property, I needed to find a person I could trust. Gordon has shown this qualitiy: professional, experienced, practical and patient. He literally lent me his eyes, he advised me and always responded promptly and patiently to all my many questions, put me in a position to make my own decision, consciously while he remained objective and independent. He was able to earn my trust and my friendship, and these are things that are priceless. It's nice to know that there are still men like Gordon Crawford Less ... More

I have purchased several homes through out my life time and I can honestly say Gordon was the best. He was on top of the sellers to make sure all required repairs and paperwork were completed before closing. He made sure I was informed with any changes or updates.

We were doing online boarding passes to come back home to Kansas when we spotted a new listing. We called Gordon, overnight he got us in to see the new property before our boarding the next morning. As we drove home from the KCI airport, we called Gordon, made an offer on that house and have not been back to Florida since. Gordon handled everything for us long distance clear though closing. He oversaw the inspections, toured our daughter through the property, oversaw the installation of a new hot water heater and did the final walk through... the works! Now that is service! Less ...

I found Gordon through the zillow website as i was attempting to familiarize myself with the housing market. Being a first time homebuyer I wanted to find an agent that could provide me with as much guidance as possible. During our search, Gordon always made time to see a home I was interested in and never pressured me into taking a home that didn't fit my needs. After Gordon deduced the type of home I was interested in his subsequent suggestions got a little closer to my ideal place. Once we found that perfect place, Gordon was instrumental in making sure I was in contact with the right people who helped me with financing and inspections in order to make my dream a reality. For a first time homebuyer here is my advice. First, become familiar with the housing market in in the area you are interested in buying. Second, ask yourself what is a fair price for this house and what if any repairs can i handle without a professional. Finally, find yourself an excellent agent. I can't help you with the first two but when it comes to finding an agent, Gordon Crawford is the gold standard. Less ... More

As a new investor I was interested in buying rental property and Gordon showed me how I could set up a self-directed IRA to acquire investment real estate with tax deferred earnings. This was a new experience for me, and Gordon explained the entire process in a way that made me feel both comfortable and confident. He was there for me every step of the way, guiding me through the process of choosing the perfect home, negotiating for the best price and terms and he kept me informed throughout the transaction. His expertise and knowledge of the market are exceptional.

Let me tell you how Agent Gordon Crawford went above & beyond helping us find our home. He quickly responded to my initial inquiry, asked all the right questions, listened intently so as to gather pertinent information and determine our needs and desires for this long distance relocation. He didn't waste any time! He met us promptly the day after our arrival in Florida, showed us a fine list of homes that met our needs. You could tell he was on a mission to find us just the right home. Clear concise directions & helpful advice made us feel comfortable and welcomed in a new area. We were greatly impressed with his knowledge of the market and with his people skills in understanding what we wanted in a home as well as our time constraints.
