Client Testimonials

Orange-5-Stars1 Melanie

“We were met with professionalism, kindness and patience to begin the journey of looking for a home in Lancaster County. As the weeks and months went by, the knowledge and insight was so evident ~ our total confidence grew. Kyle Shuker listened to what we wanted and addressed our concerns; thereby, leading us in the right direction. He knew what was acceptable in a listing before we even realized. Furthermore, the office was easily accessible, bright and friendly. We felt very comfortable there. The area is not boastful, it is rather pristine and welcoming.”

“Buying your first home can be an intimidating process, but Ryan made it stress free. My wife and I can’t thank him enough for his hard work in trying to find us a house that felt like our own. He was extremely knowledgeable about the market and guided us along every step of the way. Communicating with him was a breeze and he was very generous with his time. In the second half of the process, Sam was equally easy to work with and we felt like we could reach out to her with any questions. We greatly appreciate their handholding and all the effort that went into our house hunting!”

“We would work with the Craig Hartranft team again in a heartbeat! This was our first time buying a home and David was incredibly patient and thoughtful throughout the process to make it an easy experience. David brought a wealth of knowledge and always came with a smile on his face. We are so happy with our home and couldn’t have imagined working with anyone else. THANK YOU, David!”

Outstanding job!

“Buying a home can be stressful but thanks to the help of Sarah, Keith, and Brooke they managed to sell my home over asking price while helping me find a new home ,and answering the millions of questions I had. Through the whole process all three of them had my back no matter what curve ball was thrown my way. I’d recommend this team to anyone not only do they get the job done but I feel like in a way they also become a friend in the process. Thanks for everything!”

I’m usually a ball of nerves but not with Sarah Sample because I knew we were getting the best guidance out there. The only reason we have our dream house, in our dream location, in this competitive market is because of Sarah Sample. Her unparalleled reputation made the buyer choose our offer. Thank you Sarah!!!”

David and his whole team were such a pleasure to work with and we recommend them to anyone!

“Leah Barber was absolutely fantastic! She told me everything I needed to do (and what NOT to take the time and money to do!) to prep my brother’s home for sale. I think that over 100 showings and 22 offers speaks for itself! The home brought sizably more than what I had expected. Thank you, Leah and the C.H. team!”


“Kadric Martinez is an excellent realtor. He guided us through the house buying process and Lancaster Real Estate market with much needed expertise.

We feel we met a good friend in the process!”


“Alli is probably one of the best realtors I’ve ever worked with. She has gone above and beyond for us in our home buying process.

Have a crazy schedule? There’s always someone available for showings. I would not go anywhere else for my reality needs.”


“I specifically worked with Mitch Hershey and Samantha Bergantine on the Craig Hartranft team recently when selling an investment property in Lancaster city. As an out of state seller I was dreading the entire process, but they made everything incredibly simple. The team answered all questions and concerns I had in a timely manner and handled everything that I could not from far away. I can’t recommend them enough and look forward to working with them again in the future!”


“Kyle is the best realtor we have ever used and we will definitely use him in the future! He made the home buying process easy in a very difficult market. We felt he really had our best interest in mind throughout the entire process. Would highly recommend!


“Working with Brandon and his team has been a wonderful experience as first time home buyers. The professionalism and attentiveness to our concerns, needs and questions was truly one of a kind. It’s safe to say that we will continue to work with Brandon and his team, especially as we progress through our own life, and our future housing needs. You won’t find a better realtor and staff for your housing needs!


“We purchased a house with David Ishler during a time of high prices and record low inventory. As first-time homebuyers, David made the process so smooth that previously we were stressed about. His years of experience came in very handy, and we always felt like he prioritized us as clients. We are so happy with our new house and are glad that we have a solid realtor to recommend to others. We enjoyed using the moving truck as well which is a perk we get forever (only pay for gas). We also were really pleased with other interactions with Berkshire Hathaway staff on the Craig Hartranft team. Our Contract Manager, Sam, was helpful and responsive. Don’t fool around with the largest purchase of your lifetime – use a good realtor!


“Kadric offers a personal experience that shines with his professional work: He is knowledgeable and offers helpful advice that proves you’re in the right hands. I felt Kadric was on my side as a buyer agent, and he displayed that when he successfully negotiated every need. If you’re looking for a reliable company with an even more reliable staff (shout out to you too Samantha!) then give Kadric a call to help you find your new home.”


“I really enjoyed working with Keith and Samantha. They were extremely efficient, professional and friendly. My house sold within a weekend and everything went smoothly through the settlement. I highly recommend them.


“I worked with Kadric, from the Craig Hartranft Team, on purchasing my first home! Kadric was very helpful, informative and always available to discuss any of the questions or concerns I had. This was extremely important to me as buying a first home is one of the biggest purchases I will make, so his guidance and real estate knowledge were crucial to helping that happen. I can happily say that I am officially a first time homeowner and The Craig Hartranft Team was a major part to that so thank you all!!


“Sarah Sample has Sarah Sample has great attention to detail, is very responsive, and found exactly what we needed and stuck with us through the whole process. The moving van was also a huge help!”


An excellent experience in home buying. Jerome Maurer was so easy to work with and very helpful at every step of the process. We could not have had a better realtor.”


“As a seller, the Craig Hartranft team was exceptional. Jim Hogan was professional and knowledgeable. His expertise made the home selling process straight forward and most importantly… successful. I would highly recommend this agency.


“We had a great experience with Brandon Hartranft of Berkshire Hathaway Homesale Realty – The Craig Hartranft Team when buying and selling our homes. Brandon was professional, kind, responsive, and detail oriented. We have recommended them to several friends who had similar positive experiences and will continue to recommend and use them in the future. Finding a good real estate agent can be tough and we are so fortunate to have worked with Brandon!”


“I have used Mitch Hershey on The Craig Hartranft Team for a couple home sales over the last few years and have been very happy with the quality of costumer service, follow through, and personal touch that he put into every transaction. He was a trusted resource that was available anytime I needed him. I am extremely grateful for how organized and professional everyone on his team was, it made the whole process very easy for my wife and I. I would HIGHLY recommend this group for anyone looking to buy/sell a home.”


“Buying your first home is a large task, buying it from out of state is even more challenging. Thankfully I heard about The Craig Hartranft Team! Ryan Quindlen was fantastic and made us feel like valued clients by showing many homes in just a weekend then accommodating a last minute appointment to see the home we ended up purchasing. He provided excellent advice for handling the offer phase which helped us beat out the competition and secure our home. Highly recommend!


“Leah Davis and The Craig Hartranft Team made the purchase of our home a BREEZE. Leah made sure all timelines were met, and was always available for any questions we had. Now, three years later, they continue to keep in touch with their new app that gives you monthly updates on your home, value, loan info, etc. We know we have a realtor for life.


“We worked with Keith Shaub. He helped us sell our parents’ home. Such great experience. Def made the process so easy. Great communication and quick sale. I would highly recommend to anyone.”


“After looking at several houses and bidding on a few, the process became very discouraging. Sarah never gave up and eventually found the perfect house for us. Sarah is a high energy professional and an absolute pleasure to work with.”


“Kim McPhail from Craig’s office was referred to us by a friend. Buying a home is always a bit challenging, during 2020 I figured it would be near impossible. We were looking in Lancaster but from out of state. Kim and the team exceeded my expectations. I was able to get solid information about homes, both from Kim and the portal. I was able to get a really good sense of the condition and suitability homes we viewed by having Kim as our ‘eyes on the ground’ and video sharing. The offer and closing processes were smooth. Thank you Kim, Paxton, and the Craig Hartranft team!”


Wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Sarah worked tirelessly to get us exactly what we wanted. We are so thankful for her expertise and patience!”


“I highly recommend contacting David Ishler for all of your home buying needs. He was absolutely incredible every step of the way and our experience could not have been more pleasant and smooth sailing. His extensive knowledge of the market, resources available to him and ultimately his patience and kindness are what got us into the perfect home for my family!”


“We worked with Mitch Hershey, part of the Hartranft Team, to sell our home. Mitch was great to work with: prompt to call/text/email back, honest and forthright with information, and very knowledgeable about the market and the area. It really could not have been easier to sell a home. The entire team made this potentially stressful experience astonishingly easy, especially considering the ongoing pandemic!
