In 1974, I embarked on a career in the property profession as a trainee surveyor. I was thrilled to qualify as a Chartered Surveyor in 1978 and became a Fellow shortly after. In those days, a surveyor did everything including sales, lettings, surveys, commercial, valuations and other professional work.
I was excited to open my first Andrew Craig office in Gateshead, in 1990. We now have twelve branches and we still provide all of those diverse services but in the modern environment, they are provided by different specialists.
This is a true family business and I am privileged to work daily with my wife and three daughters, who all have specialist roles. We are joined by an incredibly enthusiastic and hugely skilled team of true property professionals. Our continued success in the North Eastern market is due to our forward thinking, family style of management and our well motivated teams of specialists.
We have branches on Tyneside, Wearside and in County Durham and as a large regional company, we are able to offer our clients a one stop property service, including:
Energy performance certificates
Our mission is to provide exceptional service combined with effective marketing techniques across all relevant media channels. This no longer focussed purely on traditional press adverts but includes our own acclaimed web site, property portals, such as OnTheMarket.com and social media. We use effective targeted email campaigns to bring our properties and services to the attention of a huge audience.
