"As a first time home buyer Craig was the best real estate agent I could have hoped for! Not only did he find us our DREAM house in Squamish BC, his friendly nature made the process of looking for our first home a lot of fun! When it came time to place an offer his extensive knowledge of the market helped us place a competitive winning bid without compromising our own market goals. Craig’s understanding of both the local market and our personal objectives ultimately allowed us to secure our home in a competitive market. He was quick to answer our many, many questions, every step of the process from placing an offer to possession and his helpful guidance through the contracts and stages was very much appreciated. We were so grateful to have a reliable, trustworthy real estate agent to guide us through our first home buying experience." - Ann Wozney
"Craig went above and beyond in selling our house in under two weeks which is exceptional for Lions Bay. He had drone floorplans and pictures done within a week on our schedule and was very mindful of all Covid practises during the process. He also brought Buyers to the table which worked to our benefit. I highly recommend Craig you will be pleased with his knowledge and professionalism." - Mark Bajus
"I would highly recommend Craig. His deep knowledge of the neighborhood, his professionalism, his close attention to all the details and his professional legal background were all important especially when we were selling during a tough time in a buyer's market. For anyone buying or selling in Lions Bay there is also the benefit that Craig has his business right in Lions Bay and is very involved in the neighborhood with a strong stake in its success."
- Alexandra Marshall
"Most importantly, Craig was READILY available for showings, always prepped, and strictly adhered to the ever evolving Covid-19 protocols and safety measures. He has the innate ability to open up friendly, fact-finding, conversations, that provided direction, goals and the market appeal of our home. Craig's affable personality together with his hands-on approach, put both ourselves, and I'm sure our potential Buyers, at ease. With great confidence we recommend his real estate services to others!" - Vaike O’Dwyer
"Selling or buying a home is not only a significant financial event in one's life, it can be a very emotional time. Craig understands both. He is outstanding in developing relationships based on a genuine desire to know you, your home and your community. Craig is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market and will work diligently to represent you and your home. He is also a gifted communicator. He not only reads people well, he asks questions to avoid making assumptions and makes himself available to respond to requests and concerns. Add a witty sense of humour and joy for life to round out the experience, and we have felt very fortunate to have Craig as our realtor." - Carol Phillips
"When I met Craig I was so impressed with his knowledge of the realty market. He is very friendly, trustworthy and shows a real passion for his job. I could have chosen any realtor but I decided to use Craig because I knew he was going to find me an incredible house. This was a big deal for me but the easiest transaction I have ever done. Thanks to Craig he made it so easy. No stress, no pressure, that’s what I like about this guy. He’s so professional and personable, I highly recommend him to everyone. Thanks Craig!" - Gloria Bosa
"Conrad and I have been very pleased that we chose you to sell our home. We know we could not have done better. There is much to be said for appearances, intelligence and personality and on meeting you we immediately felt at ease. Entrusting someone with the sale of your home is no small matter, but we knew of your track record here at Seascapes from other residents who had most successfully used your services, and this added greatly to our confidence. We value your efforts and guidance on achieving an excellent but fair price for our home and would recommend you to others without hesitation." - Judy and Conrad Lacker
"Thank you Craig!
We have sold several houses in Lions Bay over the years, but we stayed put so long this time our realtor had retired! A friend recommended you and we are so glad she did. Our listing and sale were handled with professionalism and your advice along the way was appreciated. We also appreciate the extra things you have helped with as a courtesy in your role as notary. Lions Bay is lucky to have you as both a realtor, notary and owner of the store!
We wish you every success with your new venture. Thanks again!" - Phil and Sheila Bromiley
"We would like to highly recommend Craig to any prospective seller or buyer. We listed our home with him just after the 15% penalty was imposed but he navigated us very successfully through these rough waters. We were very pleased with the result and know that Craig worked very hard for us. Selling our home of 34 years could have been very traumatic but he anticipated our every wish & need and always with a sense of humour that helped us to remain upbeat. Craig is the best!" - Ray and Lynn Pauwels
"Craig impressed us when we visited his other open houses and again from the moment he walked into our home for the first time. His passion for our house matched ours so we knew he would pass this enthusiasm on to prospective buyers. He works hard to represent his clients and get the best deal possible. Always professional, he provides sound advice on the practical matters of buying and selling property. We enjoyed working with Craig and recommend him to everyone who is looking for a realtor in Lions Bay and West Vancouver. Not only did Craig sell our home but helped us by the land to build our next one! Thank you Craig!" - Anne McCulloch and James Mole
"My family Stanley, Olivia and Suzie Wu had the pleasure of working with Craig recently. From our first appointment with Craig we were impressed with his professionalism, his knowledge and enthusiasm. Craig kept us informed at all times and made the process of selling our family home of over 20 years a positive experience. It is an emotional step to take in your life and can be overwhelming at times but Craig was always upbeat, informed, calm and, most importantly for us, humorous! I saw how he interacted with his clients and his fellow realtors and was always so impressed with his kind manner. Craig has embraced Lions Bay with his heart, is passionate about the community and all the beauty the Bay has to offer. We feel fortunate to have met Craig as we have gained a lovely friendship out of this process. We wish Craig all the best with his future listing and can highly recommend his services" - Stanley, Suzie and Olivia Wu
"Thank you so much for selling our house Craig. Your grasp of market conditions, pricing and timing was superb. We really appreciated your professional approach, your excellent time scheduling and your ability to “go the extra mile” in order to accommodate our needs. It also helps that you are a practicing lawyer with a legal degree and experience" - Pat and Pam Carron
"My husband and I recently purchased a two-bedroom condo in Port Moody as well as a condo in Vancouver (West End.) We were so thankful to have Craig Doherty as our realtor to help and guide us through this process.
Purchasing one property at a realistic price in this incredibly hot market is no easy feat, but Craig was able to help us purchase two condos, one at list price, and one just below list price. His patient and realistic approach enabled us to stick to our goals, and not get caught up in the craziness of the market. He was prepared to write as many offers as it took to find the right place at the right price. Craig was trustworthy and professional throughout the process, both when advising us, and when negotiating on our behalf. His background as a lawyer gave us confidence in knowing that we had all our bases covered when completing the paperwork. Craig is a great communicator and always kept us up to date on the progress of the market and any of our offers, and when it came down to the wire he was able to write offers quickly and confidently, so we did not miss out on any opportunities. In some cases he was doing this at 11pm at night to ensure that we were in the best possible position for our offer.
What a pleasure it has been working with Craig! We would have no hesitation in recommending him to any potential clients" - Dave and Jennifer Hetherington
"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Craig in both the sale of our existing home and the subsequent purchase of our new home.
As our listing agent in the sale of our home, we can sincerely state that Craig was totally committed to making it happen; expending a significant portion of his time, resources and skills in marketing the property and eventually “making the deal” happen.
He very clearly had our best interests in mind as he doggedly worked to get us the deal that we felt was right for us. There was never an attempt to push us into a deal that he knew was not true to our needs. He respected our position, set that as his objective, and, with hard work, patience, and perseverance, made it come together as we needed it to.
He was instrumental in allowing us to easily make that next step with the purchase of our new home. Through his strong connections to the market, to other Agents, and no doubt through his “always gentlemanly ways”, he was able to renegotiate the sell date, after our sale was already done, in order to provide us with a seamless transition to our new home.
We would not hesitate to highly recommend Craig to any prospective seller or buyer. He certainly took care of all of our real estate needs and always did so with an open mind, positive attitude and a smile."

"We have bought, sold and developed residential properties over the last 15 years. The last time we listed our house in the spring of 2015 we chose Craig Doherty to be our Realtor. His commitment and dedication to selling our house was exceptional. Craig is a natural “people person”, has a sincere interest in all people, and always made us feel, as clients, important and comfortable. He is an excellent communicator and any issues that arose during the selling process he always addressed promptly. Also, being a former practising lawyer, his negotiation skills are very shrewd. We would definitely use Craig Doherty as our Realtor again for either buying or selling any future properties." - Maggie and Bruce Macdonald
"Craig Doherty successfully negotiated both selling our house and buying a beautiful condo in just the right location and right size. We were delighted with Craig's integrity, attention to detail, patience and understanding of today's complex Real Estate Market. He brings both a professional legal background and extensive work experience in both Australia & Canada. He will also advise and help you obtain professionals experienced in preparing your home for sale, reliable building inspection plus any trades required to make corrections or repairs, as well as moving & downsizing companies. Craig's enthusiasm for the job and ability to answer calls at any time makes him a Realtor anyone will enjoy working with for the best possible outcome." - Diane Jeffries
