Get to Know Craig Newport

As a member of the GMAC Real Estate team we are committed to providing Premier Service to all of our clients.  You will actually receive an independent research firm customer satisfaction survey once the transaction is completed for you to grade us.  We have a 94% positive satisfaction score, the highest in the business!  I pride myself on being a Trusted Advisor, Skilled Negotiator and Expert Facilitator.  I strive to make the entire process as stress free and enjoyable as possible.  In addition, as a client of mine, you will automatically be enrolled in the GMAC Home Rewards program giving you discounts on everything from restaurants to rental cars.


I am currently a resident of Oakville but have extensive knowledge of the entire St. Louis area.  I have lived in Des Peres, Kirkwood and Ballwin and have listed and sold properties from Wentzville to South City and everywhere in between.  I have worked with everyone from first time buyers to retirees and feel comfortable with most everyone.

I have a shared website, , that provides a wealth of Real Estate information to the general public for Free.  You can find information on just about everything from What Your Home is Worth  to Tips for Selling Your Home on Your Own.  Our complete marketing plan can be found there as well. 

I am very aware of the power of the internet in Real Estate transactions.  That is why we use many sites, including fee sites, to market our listings.  Unfortunately many agents still only use the standard MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and miss many potential buyers.  The number of people using the internet to begin their home process is nearing 90% before they ever talk to an agent.  In addition to using the MLS we subscibe to other services to help search every possible option for our clients looking to purchase a home. 

I am skilled with foreclosure and investment properties and work with several groups of investors by recommending and advising properties that fit the profile they are comfortable with.  I have co-listed numerous foreclosures for several major banks including GMAC Mortgage Homecomings division.  Navigating through the purchase process with these homes does not have to be challenging and I have the knowledge to make sure it is not.

I have recently become more involved in the relocation market.  I am comfortable with the various aspects of relo including the BMA (Broker Market Analysis) and ERC forms, listing and selling under corporate guidelines and assisting incoming transferees in finding their new homes.

Through our extensive network we have the ability to find and locate top agents in other markets for anyone moving out of town and not covered by corporate relocation.  This helps take the guess work out of who you should use in an unfamilier market.

GMAC Real Estate pledges Premier Service and I am Premier Service Certified.  This is a separate designation given after additional training and testing.  My goal is to make sure you are completely happy with the entire process.

I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Missouri Association of Realtors and the St. Louis County Association of Realtors.  I am a former member of the Jefferson County Association of Realtors and subscibe and practice all aspects of the real estate profession that these organizations stand accountable to. 

We have a number of Mortgage Brokers we work closely with and even have a separate GMAC Mortgage office within our GMAC Real Estate office.  The whole aspect of obtaining a mortgage is an area where many people get taken advantage of through excessive fees and interest rate.  We make certain, and know this does not happen with the lenders we use.
