Craig Ackerman
Proof Real Estate
About Craig

For nearly 20 years, Craig Ackerman has been adding value to his clients’ home sales. He likes to present options for broadening a property’s appeal through quick, strategic cosmetic resurfacing. Most clients follow his plan, allowing him to deliver the highest possible selling price. He often sets new price records in a neighborhood. “But I don’t specialize in any particular district,” he points out. “My best practices apply everywhere, and I consistently sell homes with more offers and for more money throughout the Bay Area.” A lifetime in home transformation and real estate He started as a kid in the family business, working alongside his brother and father as they painted, replaced faucets, installed countertops and cleaned up landscaping — prepping New Jersey homes to rent or sell. Craig developed a keen sense for where to spend to attract buyers and how to negotiate so everyone wins. Since then, he has earned a contractor’s license; has bought, refurbished and sold his own homes; and has guided the refresh of hundreds of San Francisco and Bay Area client properties. To his great satisfaction, he’s helped homeowners, investment property owners and developers, generating millions in additional profits for them. His accomplishments include: • 500+ Bay Area real estate transactions completed • Top Agent Network, verified member since 2012 • Five Star Agent Award for customer service, last seven years • Former licensed contractor • Author, “Selling Grandma’s House” • Certified New Home Specialist • Residential Construction Certified International sensibility After college and before Craig landed in California, he spent 10 years in Asia, managing sales of commercial flooring to Fortune 500 companies for Milliken. He often grabbed a hard hat and met with the designer and architect in a half-built high rise before the window glass was even installed. Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, China. Craig enjoyed working with people across borders and absorbing cultural nuances. He also acquired sophisticated marketing, team management and interior design skills that have served him and his clients all through his professional life. On the personal side Above all, Craig is a family man and loves spending time with his wife and young son, from hanging out at home to travel and Little League games.

Anthony Navarro
Harper Real Estate
About Anthony

Anthony Navarro’s intuitive yet data-driven approach has earned him many accolades, such as the Best of HomeLight Award 2018, which placed him in the top 5% of agents nationwide. In 2020, he was named a HomeLight Elite Agent, which is only awarded to the top 1% of agents in the nation. This designation allows his sellers to trade in their houses when moving up or downsizing and gives his buyers more negotiating power with the ability to make all-cash-offers. Always an early adopter who stays on the leading edge, Anthony has also partnered with Harcourt’s Auctions, an elite auction house for non-distressed homes that boasts a 31% higher success rate and 6-8% higher prices than the MLS. Anthony’s broad range of experience, vast professional network, and in-depth knowledge of the economic principles that drive real estate sales have placed him in the top 1% of San Francisco agents since 2005. Not surprising, as the San Francisco native has been honing his seemingly innate talent since he was a child. Anthony first learned about real estate from his parents, who were successful investors, and has long maintained a thriving national personal real estate portfolio. Though he specializes in luxury properties and investments, Anthony has guided hundreds of Bay Area buyers, sellers, and investors to success in all markets. Outside of real estate, Anthony devotes time to his two daughters. He named Harper after his eldest because of her exuberance and passion for life — two qualities they share. When not with his family or clients, Anthony volunteers with San Francisco Seals Soccer, an organization that provides opportunities to young players from all economic backgrounds. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from UC Berkeley.

About Michael

Michael Soon has been making dreams come true, one home at a time, for more than a decade. His passion for real estate is rooted all the way back in his childhood when he helped his parents manage several properties. As a native San Franciscan home-grown in the Sunset District, San Francisco was Michael’s playground. Over time, he started to pay more attention to the different types of buildings and their architectural styles within San Francisco’s forty-nine square miles. At an early age, Michael saw his parents work long, hard hours and save relentlessly so they could buy a home. Since then, he has grown to understand their sacrifice and the importance real estate plays in a person’s life. The support and stability that real estate brought his family allowed Michael an opportunity to pursue his own dreams and aspirations. This understanding combined with his passion to help people realize their own dreams through real estate are the core foundation that Michael builds upon as a Realtor. Michael began his real estate career at the start of the nation’s biggest real estate and economic downturn in recent history. Facing numerous challenges early on, he never strayed from his main focus: helping his clients fulfill their real estate dreams. Understanding his client’s goals has helped Michael negotiate successful outcomes for buyers and sellers on all types of properties throughout the San Francisco region. Real estate, whether buying or selling, can be quite a journey, and Michael will be there every step of the way. Prior to joining Climb Real Estate, Michael was a top-producing agent at Coldwell Banker in San Francisco. He earned multiple awards at Coldwell Banker including, most recently, Coldwell Banker’s prestigious International Diamond Society Award for 2011 and 2012 and President’s Circle for 2013 and 2014. Michael employs his successful experiences with single-family homes, condos, multi-unit properties, commercial investments, and land development to ensure his clients have every advantage possible. Over the years, Michael’s success has been due in part to the extensive network of resources he has built to provide pre- and post-sale support for his clients. Michael loves all that San Francisco and the Bay Area have to offer. He enjoys bringing his family to his favorite childhood places as well as discovering new family favorites. Michael can be found frequenting many of San Francisco’s unique commercial neighborhoods including Irving Street in the Sunset, King Street in Mission Bay, Fillmore Street in Lower Pacific Heights, and 24th Street in Noe Valley. Michael now lives in the Sunset in San Francisco with his wife and three lively kids. He frequently explores San Francisco with his family and has gained incredible knowledge of the area. Michael has expanded his real estate success from San Francisco into the Peninsula where he lived prior in South San Francisco for 8 years. As well as being a successful and knowledgeable real estate agent, Michael is also a successful entrepreneur. He and his wife founded Diddalidoo, an indoor play center for young children 0-4 years old located in San Bruno, California, shortly after welcoming their first son in 2011.
