    The buying process with Craig DeAtley was essentially seamless. Every detail was taken care of before I had even thought of it. He provided recent comparison sales when we were discussing placing an offer, set up home inspections and had them done for us even when we were out of town, and used a remarkably easy electronic documentation system to send/receive contracts and signed documents. Craig DeAtley always kept us up to date on the progress of our house-buying journey. He was immediately accessible anytime we had a question, and would always reply back in a timely manner if he were unable to answer our question immediately. I couldnt be happier with my experience with Century 21. The entire staff was polite and knowledgeable. I always felt welcomed while visiting their office. There were even fresh baked cookies when we arrived at their office on the day of our closing. They truly made buying a house an enjoyable event. ~ Seth and Jasmine, Portsmouth OH
