What clients are saying...
Craig has helped me a great deal through our discussions throughout the selling process. His insights were very valuable. He assisted me in buying or selling 4 properties since 1994.
Craig is wonderful - he has helped us out a lot over the years and we couldn't ask for a more friendly and knowledgeable realtor to work with. Not to mention Laura is phenomenal, responsive and kind!
Craig and Laura were amazing to work with. They represented our home very well from the photos to the description. Within a few hours of signing the contract and listing our home, we started receiving requests for showings the very same day. Our home received 3 offers within 24 hours. Craig diligently summarized each of the offers and advised us on which offer to consider. We were very pleased with his recommendation. Craig stayed on top of everything and kept us up to date on any changes. The closing process also went very smoothly. We would highly recommend the Shorewest team and most specifically Craig Francois.
best in the business! Helped me through ever step of the process!
Craig has been a good friend of mine since high school and I know the type of professional he is as well as his past successes and experience. So this was an easy choice for my wife Lois and I. Laura Neumann who we also met through our selling process was also very thorough and tremendous to work with. Craig knew exactly what list price would generate traffic and gave us his best assessment of what he thought offers would come in at, and was spot on, which were higher than list price I might add. The photo's of the home, selling features, and listing materials were above my expectations. I have recommended Craig to many of my friends and family and will continue to do so in the future.
Craig was our realtor when we first moved to the area 3-4 years ago and was just as great the second time around with both our home sale and our new home purchase. His attention to detail and his accessibility made the transition as low stress and smooth as it could be. He and his staff did an amazing job with the listing and pictures, as well as keeping us updated on showings, any changes, etc. Any questions we had, small or large, were answered without delay. We had an excellent experience and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the area.
You have a great asset in Laura Neumann - she was terrific to work with in selling our home. Most of the process was done by phone and email, as we were already out of state, but Laura made the process smooth and assisted in all of the little detail items with which we needed help; for example, she communicated with an auction company to collect and sell our leftover furniture, visited the home multiple times near the end of the closing to ensure everything was on track, communicated key information to the buyer, and kept everything on track. I'd use her and Shorewest again, absolutely.
This is the second time I have went with Craig and I couldn't be happier. He makes things very easy. He is also very prompt when I needed questions answered. I have bought and sold other homes in other states and Craig is by far the best of all the rest.
My wife and I are so lucky to have Craig's energy and intelligence in navigating the path to home ownership. Once again, Craig has shined above the rest. I would have a hard time putting my trust in another realtor after all the work Craig has put forth into our working relationship.
This is the second time Craig has helped us find a place to call home. Craig is the most down to earth agent we've met. He makes you feel like an old friend and you can trust he has your best interest at heart. He gives you the same consistent level of attention, whether you're spending $120k or $300k. Craig always took the time to answer our questions in an amazingly timely fashion. He made it feel like we were his only clients. We will definitely tell all of our friends and family about Craig and Shorewest.
Craig was awesome. He was patient, courteous, informative, attentive, and very responsive. He made buying a first home experience as smooth as possible, and I am very happy that he was my agent. His integrity and professionalism were very evident, and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to buy a house.
As always, Craig has done an excellent job with our most recent property sale. He has helped my wife and I buy and sell several properties, and we refer him to other people regularly. We would gladly recommend Craig! We especially appreciate his continuous attention, even on weekends and holidays. He goes above and beyond every time!
Craig and Laura were great from the beginning to the end. They were always available to answer our questions, helped us sell the house safely in the middle of the pandemic, and used their multiple contacts to get many visitors.

Craig was great through this entire process. From showing us homes to taking care of the sale of our own home, he was awesome. Even though we took our time in making decisions, he always kept checking in on us and seeing what he could do. We really appreciate his help in making this experience easy. We got everything we wanted and more...thanks Craig:)
Our experience with Craig Francois was excellent from the beginning of showing us homes till our Closing last week at Shorewest. We worked with Craig & Laura a few years ago when we sold our home near Lambeau Field and sent a Kudo letter, which we believe is still on your site. Craig's Salesmanship, Courtesy, Personality and Communication skills are Stellar and he is a pleasure to work with as well as being a true Professional. We shall continue to share with friends the excellent experience we had working with Craig & Shorewest. Also enjoyed having our closing in the Lombardi Conference Room at Shorewest. Hollee & Michael Patri
Craig is the only person we will deal with in the future. Once you start working with Craig you realize he's like an old friend who's just looking out for you to make the whole experience feel easy and not stressful. We recommend him highly to any of our friends who ask.
WOW!!! Outstanding experience with Craig Francois and his partner, Laura Newmann!! Questions answered at any time of day or week, texts were answered within minutes. Craig and Laura gave expert guidance on trends and values of purchasing and buying. We could not have asked for a better selling and purchasing experience than what we got with Craig and Laura. Hands down, THE BEST TEAM!!!
We were very happy with with all Craig and Laura were able to do for us. We had a challenging property to sell and they kept us on an even keel through the ups and downs of the process. We would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.
Craig was patient and knowledgeable and very friendly! He made us feel very comfortable with the home buying process and answered all of our questions promptly. We would absolutely work with him again and will recommend him to others!
We have worked with Craig on multiple transactions as both buyer and seller over the years. Each time we experience the utmost professionalism, honesty and promptness. From a primary residence to investment property, Craig and his team are by far the best we have ever encountered. Regardless of the real estate need we have, our first call is to Craig to gauge his thoughts, even in markets where he isn't. We trust, believe, and have seen that Craig and the team always have our best interests at heart. Far and above the best real estate team we could ever had the opportunity to work with.
Craig was everything you would want in a real estate agent. He was knowledgeable, explained the complexities of selling a home in terms we could understand, and understood the potential pitfalls. His advice on all substantive matters was constructive and accurate, and just as importantly, he and his staff responded to questions very quickly (even on weekends!). Once decisions were made, he enthusiastically carried out those decisions.
Craig is great to work with! My husband and I moved to Green Bay from out of state and Craig began helping us look for a home before we even arrived. He not only walked us through what to expect as first time home buyers...but also how to make the most out of our time in Green Bay. He was always available for a phone call and quick to respond by email and text (which was so necessary - some of these homes moved fast!). We loved that Craig gave us honest opinions about what we should be evaluating; we knew that he always had our best interests in mind. He said he was never going to talk us into a home - and was patient with us until we found the perfect fit! If you're looking for a great home, easy process, some good supper club recommendations, and a familiar face in the Packers tailgate lot...we highly recommend meeting Craig!
Craig made the purchase of our home incredibly smooth! We moved from another state and needed help with recommendations for everything, and Craig over delivered throughout the process. He explained each step in great detail, and took special care to ensure that we felt comfortable. He made us feel very welcome in the Green Bay area!
Craig and Laura did an excellent job in everything they did to get my house sold. My situation was unique in that I robbed less than a year ago. I did not want a sign out front, a lockbox or any open houses. Craig assured me that would not be a problem. And it wasn't. Between Craig and Laura, they went out of their way to assure I was comfortable with each showing. Craig and Laura walked me through everything. They are an awesome team!
Craig was very nice to work with, informative, took the time necessary to help us understand the process, the offers we received and how that process would work. Comes with a lot of knowledge. Always felt better about the process and what was going on after talking with Craig.
Craig and the team at shorewest realty did an excellent job selling my duplex, I would highly recommend them! The Duplex sold in less than a month which was more than I expected for a high end property . Craig stayed in contact with me and kept me well informed during the whole process , Great job!
Craig was amazing to work with. Very professional and always kept us updated. Would definitely recommend!
Craig was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns and always offered good advice about selling our home. We enjoyed working with him and Shorewest Realty.
Craig is a consummate professional. When we discovered that requirements (due largely to excessive regulations) for buying a house had changed and that the current market required quick responses, we were fortunate to have a realtor with the knowledge and experience that Craig has.
Craig Francois is top notch in what he does at Shorewest Realtors! Through out the entire process of house hunting to closing and even following up after the closing he made us feel like our interests and needs were most important. The was no pressure to purchase, and whenever we reached out, we recieved prompt timely responses. Laura Neumann stepped in as well when Craig was away on vacation. Sincerest thanks to both for making this portion of our move from the Chicagoland area as stress free as possible, and a good experience!
Craig and team were amazing to work with! They kept us in the loop every step of the way! Their communication was timely and meaningful, giving us a chance to react if necessary. They went above and beyond when we encountered delay and took it upon themselves to be instrumental in removing any obstacle. The end result being mutually beneficial -the SALE of the property! True partnership in every way!
Our experience with Craig was exceptional. He spent a lot of time with us to understand what we were looking for in a new home and then was able to narrow down our search and in a short period of time we found our new home. Craig was even willing to set up a showing on Mother's Day in the early morning so that we could get an offer in since there was another competing offer being presented that same day. Great communication throughout, made us feel comfortable through the process. We're so happy with Craig he is now our listing agent for our current house sale.
I would encourage people to consider Shorewest when purchasing or selling a house. We had an accepted offer in less than two weeks. Craig Francois was our agent.
Craig kept me grounded during the entire process. He shared where the market was, what nearby influences affected value and state of showings. He was extremely professional and helped keep the emotional issues out of the deal. He's also supported by Laura who can take care of additional detail. I'd recommend Craig and his team!
Craig definitely deserves a 5-star rating for his work with clients. He is very thorough and professional and has the best interest of his clients in all aspects of the real estate transaction. He will give you good advice and never makes you feel inadequate. We have worked with him on several occasions and I always recommend him to anyone I know who is buying or selling real estate! Needless to say, he also has an excellent partner in Laura Neuman. She is also excellent with clients and her attention to detail is outstanding. She has a great personality and definitely is in the right profession. We surely enjoyed working with both of them. They are an awesome team!! Shorewest should be very proud to have them as employees!!
Craig was great. He listened to my many questions patiently. He was good at letting me vent and not get upset. Good man.
It is our pleasure to share with others that Craig Francois is a Realtor Extraordinaire. His stellar professionalism courtesy and kindness was outstanding and we So enjoyed working with him. Craig priced our house correctly and it sold in just 7 days on the market. Craig always answered our questions and returned our e-mails or calls quickly. We had every confidence in him and have passed out his cards to our neighbors. I have owned 6 homes in my lifetime and this was the smoothest and most enjoyable Listing and Selling of any of the homes I have owned. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Craig Francois to take care of your Real Estate Needs. He is a JOY to work with. Laura, his assistant took beautiful pictures of our home for marketing and was there for us also. The Shore West Office personnel, Michelle and Barb were also most helpful to me as I had to fax information as we are moving out of State. Thank you all, it was a real pleasure selling our home this time. Hollee and Michael Patri, Green Bay, Wisconsin (Go Pack)
Absolutely amazing to work! Stays in constant contact with you via email and text/calls. Doesn't miss a thing and is very good at explaining the complicated things and making sure you're on top of what needs to be done. I'd recommend him to ANYONE!
Craig not only has helped my parents and whole family find a house and commercial property but now has helped me get my first house! He got me into a listing within 12 hours of being on the market and I had an accepted offer within 22 hours of being on the market!
Craig has helped me buy and sell several homes in the Green Bay Area. He is always quick to respond, gives great advice and has many connections to get your house sold fast or find just what you are looking for! Thanks again Craig
Craig has the qualities of everything you'd want in a realtor; good communicator, professional and timely. Our property sold for asking price shortly after it was listed what more could any seller ask for? Thanks Craig! --Toby Vandenack
We enjoy working with Craig and Laura. We had a not so good experience many years ago, and when it came time that we were selling again, my sister in law told us about Craig. What a difference it was. So again, we were selling a rental, we went with Craig again. Craig and Laura did not disappoint. They were available to us and patient with the many questions we had. We felt confident with Craig's advice, when we had to make a decision about multi/different offers.
Craig has been the only realtor we have known. We bought our first house with him 13 years ago and when we decided to make the move we knew right away he was the guy to help us find a new home and sell ours. This time my wife and I were pickier about the home we were going to select. Craig was unbelievably patient with us as we looked at many houses and some houses twice. It took a while but we found the house that we wanted. I think the best thing about Craig is that he is honest and straightforward. As we looked at houses he pointed out things that we did not see or overlooked. He would tell us if the house was overpriced for the area or if it was a good value based on his experience. A person just looking for a commission would have looked passed those items but Craig is not that type of realtor. Craig was also up front with us about how quickly the market was moving and that if we found something we better move quickly. This was very true, a few houses we looked at sold in a day. When the house we ended up with came back on the market because a deal fell through he was right there to let us know and get us in the house. Yes, this was one of the houses we dragged our feet on the first time around. We wrote an offer and Craig walked us through the process. When it came to selling our old house, well lets just say the house sold in less that one day. I have nothing but great things to say about Craig Francois. He is a great realtor and a great guy. We will definitely go back to him for future realtor needs.
Craig was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgable. He made selling our home a great experience in that he communicated well and timely, as well as sharing his insight. We would recommend him to friends and family. Sincerely, Carla and Mike Martin
