A little about me

As director of Jellis Craig’s Brunswick, Fitzroy, Northcote and North Melbourne offices, Craig's dynamic leadership skills have been instrumental in establishing the company as Melbourne’s premier inner north agency.

“The Jellis Craig brand elevates our clients’ properties in the market place,” says Craig. “We understand the inner north better than anyone, and that's reflected in our results."

Practical and client-focused, Craig’s career success is underpinned by strong communication skills, a proactive approach and his appreciation of the significance of every property transaction.

“It’s an enormous decision to sell or buy a property and I don't ever lose sight of that. I never take the sales process lightly and am diligent when it comes to following through on every promise I make.”

Testimonials

Thank you so much for all of the work you put in at 52 Berry St, it really was an astonishing result on Saturday morning. Lucy and I both felt fully informed and supported throughout the process and appreciate you catering to our constant requests. I think collectively we got the place looking its best (a 'million bucks' you could say) and appreciate the coordination of painters and plasterers, watering of the lawn and plants, quality checking, strategic placing of cushions and flowers pre-opens, and all the other endless requests whilst we were out of the state. Craig, I also just wanted to mention how impressed I was with the auction process on the day. I was keenly listening from the front room and I thought that you set the scene beautifully at the start of the auction, conveying all the things that Lucy and I loved about the house and the suburb, I have no doubt that this stuck in the buyers mind as she was bidding. So thanks again guys, it is no surprise that we were over the moon with the result.

I just wanted to say thanks Craig for your honesty and prompt responses to all of our questions during the sales process. I would easily recommend your services to others knowing that they would be treated equally as well as we were. Many thanks.

Craig was very professional, attentive and supportive throughout the sale process. We selected Jellis Craig because of their reputation and previous dealings demonstrated to us that the referral network was strong across the inner east and north. We were not disappointed with our choice and a great result was achieved on Auction Day! I would happily recommend Craig and the team at Jellis Craig to potential vendors.

Craig is reassuring, communicative and honest. His mix of experience and knowledge immediately puts everyone at ease and never oversells or pushes his view. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with both Craig and the Jellis Craig.

Both Alison and John Gembarovski would like to thank and acknowledge the exceptional work that both Anita & Craig performed for us over the sales campaign of our house, resulting in a wonderful sales outcome. They were the ultimate professionals providing us with all the current and relevant information so that we could make an informed decision in the sale of our house. We initially chose them due to their honest approach, advice, experience and knowledge of the real estate market. They were also recommended by a family friend and word of mouth is very important. Their communication was consistent, prompt and encouraging throughout the campaign. We would and will recommend them to anyone who asks our opinion as to a reputable estate agent. When we decide to sell our next house, theirs is the first and only number we will be calling.

My exceptional rating regarding Jellis Craig is almost solely based on my contact with Craig Shearn and the quality of written material for the property in general. (Also good contact with Bev). Craig has been warm, personal and informative in his dealings with us. When we asked for information it was readily given and we found him very helpful. Unlike previous dealings with Estate Agent personnel, we felt no unnecessary pressure from him.

Craig Shearn is known to me as an agent who sold me my current property. He was also the agent for a similar property next door. Both Craig and Anita who worked with him to sell my property seem to have an innate understanding of the wider ranging needs of a vendor. Both also have an endearing personal style. What was provided to me in the course of my property sale campaign, by Craig & Anita was significantly more than I expected. My expectations were high but were constantly exceeded by a calming, thorough marketing campaign including “house of the Week” in the Melbourne Times, knowledge, tentativeness, care, high quality photo’s & written information, excellent communication, highly organised, punctual, able to capture and express the essence of my property and to promote/manage same. I could not have been happier with what was provided.
