Barrie and AnneMarie Crake, each with more than 30 years of real estate experience, provide a powerful real estate advisory service for buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of homes, land, investment properties and second homes. They met each other in a real estate class in 1986 (marrying in 1988) and have been helping clients achieve their real estate goals ever since!
Their strong marketing background maximizes the exposure of the homes they list and sell and their deft touch in event planning and creative home staging allows them to achieve top sales price in every market. Their average time on the market to sell a home in 2013 was twelve days. Barrie and AnneMarie Crake, who have continually ranked as top producers, are excited about the increased opportunities that the Pacific Sotheby's International Realty network can provide for their business and to their clients.
