About Us

About Craig Ratowsky

For more than 43 years, Craig Ratowsky has been synonymous with Southern Californian real estate. And that’s not just because of his unparalleled experience buying and selling property in Orange County’s sunny coastal communities. As a beloved community member of Huntington Beach, Craig’s passion in life is helping others love where they live just as much as he does.

Highly respected and committed to his clients success, Craig’s approach to real estate is deeply relational: the majority of his clients are repeat business or direct referrals from satisfied customers. Craig has sold to several three-generation families, demonstrating his excellent long-standing reputation and professionalism.

His impeccable knowledge of his hometown surf city, extensive network, and decades of experience buying and selling O.C. real estate puts Craig in a league all of his own.

Craig knows all the region’s hidden gems, the floor plan of every type of house in Huntington Beach, and everything from which neighborhoods are up-and-coming to which have underlying foundation issues (hint: it’s to do with the soil.)

One past client described Craig as “extremely competent, a straight shooter, ethical and reliable.” Another raved that Craig “truly cares about his clients and always represented our best interests, especially when we had multiple offers. Craig was responsive, available, and patient. Highly recommended!”

Expert, advisor, and guide, Craig uses his market knowledge to streamline the process and ensure you feel empowered every step of the way. Because every individual has unique needs, Craig’s approach is highly personalized. Put simply, Craig doesn’t just make the process of buying and selling property financially lucrative; he also makes it fun.

As a devoted husband and proud father of two, Craig’s reputation for honesty and generosity precedes him. In his spare time, he enjoys watching basketball, bike riding along the beach with his wife, Chris, and eating too many See’s Candies.

Outstanding. Craig was an exceptional help at every step of the process. Craig gave us our options and helped us to come up with a strategy to price and present our home. He did a great job of marketing and showing our home and kept us informed and advised on all contacts with prospective buyers. Craig made sure everything went well through escrow and closing. We feel we got a very good deal thanks to Craig, and are pleased with the outcome.

    

When it came to buying our dream home in Huntington Beach there was the only one choice and one team. Craig Ratowsky and his son Justin Ratowsky. Buying a house when you are out of state is extremely stressful. We have worked with Craig Ratowsky on two prior transactions and he never disappointed. Craig and Justin Ratowsky always looked for the best interest of our family and what our “wants” were and not their “needs”. We truly appreciated their honesty with every house we looked at via email or in person. Negotiating is their area of expertise. They knew the market and showed us the facts. They are both attentive to the details of both parties. Both Justin and Craig were on top of every appointment, transaction, and made sure our family did not just find a house but a home. In Craig and Justin, we trust!

    

As a retired real estate professional, I knew many fellow realtors in the community. When it came to selling our own home in Huntington Beach there was only one choice, Craig Ratowsky. Because we live out of town now, we needed someone who we could have the most confidence in doing everything necessary in the sale of our home. We knew Craig would always "have our " in representing our interests. We appreciated his candor when we needed to be told to take the offer because he had done his due diligence and negotiated a fair market price for the home. Once in escrow, he kept us informed and continued to track the transaction all the way to the finish. Hire Craig Ratowsky!

    

I met Craig in September when I became serious about moving to Huntington Beach from Sherman Oaks. He put me on the listing book emails which I received daily with new listings and changes. I was diligent about checking every day and at night I would search realtor.com. We looked at one I thought had potential, but timing wasn't right. I my in 2 weeks in March and did a short escrow with a 30 day rent . Since September I had not seen one I felt I wanted to make an offer on. I started booking appointments to see apartments on a Saturday. On Friday, a came on the market that I was interested in. Craig and I went to see it at the that weekend. I knew it was the for me. There was a lot of traffic during the , so we had a feeling there would be multiple offers. The owners were taking offers the following Wednesday and I believe besides mine there were 6 others. I told Craig he had to get me this ! He had a great strategy and I ended up getting it. His experience and knowledge definitely played a big part. So I did not have to put my stuff in storage and rent an apartment. I still look on the sites all the time and I have yet to actually see a I would buy. I would still be in an apartment! On top of everything Craig is a really nice man. I highly recommend him!

    

We owned a home in Oregon so we decided to move to Oregon to be closer to our family. My neighbor next to me had used Craig Ratowsky several times when buying houses and highly recommended him so I decided to interview him. I was so pleased with his presentation and interview I decided to go with him at that time. He listened to me and never pressured me in any of my decisions and was always there to answer any questions or help me with any problems. My experience with realtors before were not pleasant, but I would very highly recommend Mr. Ratowsky. He did a wonderful job for me and made me smile each time I spoke with him and my to the first family that came to look. He is a wonderful realtor as well as a great human being. Always has a smile on his face and ready to help.

    

Craig is the only realtor we even think of when either buying or selling a property. He is always professional, responsive, hardworking and fun to work with. When you go with Craig you are ensured honest feedback on current market conditions and when selling, honest feedback on your property's condition and comparison to other similar properties currently on the market or recently . In selling our condo Craig recommended a number of inexpensive upgrades which allowed us to increase our condo asking price and receive an acceptable offer within the first month on the market. Our selling experience was fast, painless and fun. Craig comes highly recommended.

    

I choose Craig Ratowsky after interviewing 3 realtors. He guided us throughout the entire process and went beyond expectations. Craig's experience and calming demeanor helped us through everything from establishing a sale price, being present during the appraisal and home inspection process and providing guidance on repairs and staging. He truly cares about his clients and always represented our best interest especially when we had multiple offers. Craig was responsive, available, and patient. I highly recommend him.
