Testimonials

Last year my wife and I enlisted Steve and Susan Crane to help us find a home. From the very first engagement call, they made us feel as though we were their only client.  They were responsive, kind and sensitive to all our needs.

The home buying process is not easy but they made us comfortable and we could not have been happier with their leadership along the way.

We look forward to working with them again the next time around and would highly recommend their services to anyone!

I talked to Steven crane when I invested in my first rental property in Solano county.

He is professional, trust worthy and knows the market very well. Very straight forward guy and gave his honest opinion about the building when he spotted something wrong.

He helped to put in the bid, arrange for building inspector and property manager. Very easy to work with and I ended up buying 4 rentals from him. Highly recommend!!!

Thank you Steve and Susan for a terrific job selling our place in Lafayette, CA! We are very satisfied with the way you handled this listing and we are glad that we followed your advice about staging! (Thank you Angie too).

You were involved in every detail and took care of everything from contacting vendors, replacing whatever was necessary, buying materials and dealing with the HOA. Know that is invaluable to us.

Thank you for listening and understanding our expectations perfectly, and all the time, knowing what this place meant to us.

We bought a commercial property in San Anselmo for my business and it would not have been possible without the incredible work of Steve Crane at Morley Fredericks. Great realtors are more than just a person taking you to listings. Steve and his team at Morley Fredericks have a key network of related professionals needed for closing escrow in an efficient manner. Personally, Steve is very organized and kept all parties aligned through the escrow process. If we ever do another commercial property Steve Crane will be my first call without question. Top notch!

In 2015, we sold our business property of 65 years in Southern California. I had been receiving a monthly lease check that I was using to offset my living expenses. As it was my main source of income along with Social Security, there was not a lot of room to wait for a new investment to replace that income. Steve and Susan quickly found a solid new property for me to invest in and are also managing the asset for me. I receive my monthly disbursement on time every month (it’s a little higher than the previous property!), and I rest easy knowing they are helping me meet my financial obligations.

We have used Steve to sell rental properties for us, do Broker Price Opinions for our mortgage company, and have referred real estate buyers to him.  He always does a great job and stays in touch along the way.

To whom it may concern,

From time to time in my life, I’ve needed to sell some properties, and I’ve been fortunate to have had some very fine realtors. But I have to say that Steve Crane of Morley Fredericks Real Estate Services is exceptional.

I owned an older commercial building located on a quaint somewhat old-fashioned downtown Main St. in the bay area. Selling it would be straight forward or so I thought. However, that is not how things played out. In addition to some of the challenges we knew were facing us, a number of unexpected problematical circumstances surfaced one after another as well. Steve handled each one expertly, calmly and confidently with the most positive attitude of anyone I’ve ever seen! He was never daunted by anything! Throughout all of this he was always “on top of things”…incredibly efficient with all communications and signings, making them as easy and stress-free as possible. He is extremely knowledgeable about this business and very adept.

When I would marvel at how Steve would handle some difficult situation, my husband would say to me, “You have to understand. For Steve this is a soccer game.”

Though there were times I worried, Steve never did; and he said he would sell it, and he DID!!

To me it seemed miraculous. I cannot express enough gratitude or say enough good about this man. If you have Steve Crane as your realtor, you are in good hands. Don’t worry!

 


 

Commercial real estate can be a mine field, and I was relieved to turn the responsibilities over to Steve Crane who had important insights and knowledge that I did not. More than once he pointed out potential problems that I had not seen coming. He worked hard and competently, and I have only the highest praise for what he did. Through it all there were some tense moments during which he stayed calm and even—right up to the successful sale of a property that was difficult to place. He has a great “bedside manner,” and I would recommend him highly to anyone.
