Craig Heger is the Closing Manager and has been an essential part of the team since 2013.
Craig meets every challenge with quiet determination, a trait he began to hone years ago. When he was only in the 6th grade, Craig decided he was going to have a Siberian Husky. Not realizing then how dedicated he was to this goal, his father made a bet with him. Craig had to keep A's and B's during the 6th grade. He ended up with a perfect 4.0 and a beautiful Siberian husky that he still has today. Thanks, Dad. After graduating from Cleary University in Michigan where he excelled in corporate finance, Craig decided to move to Florida at his sister’s request, who was already living here. He immediately found opportunity with the one the largest hedge fund companies in the U.S. and sold over $15 million in properties at only 23.
Now at 28, Craig has facilitated hundreds of successfully closed transactions and wears every hat from showing property to final negotiations. From start to finish, he closely attends to every detail to ensure a smooth and ejoyable closing experience. Craig, in joining Jeff’s Team, has experienced sales in homes, condos, and vacant land on the north end of Jupiter to Boca Raton on the south end. He has experience in gated golf and non-gated communities along with waterfront living.
Craig handles everything from entering the listing in MLS to working with the title company to close out the transaction. He is in constant communication with you. Craig quarterbacks the start of the listing, keeps track of all critical dates that must be met, and works diligently to make sure the closing goes smoothly. From making keys to meeting the inspector to driving you to the airport, Craig will be there for you. He believes in showing up to work early, working late, and making sure the client is happy. Most of all, he believes anything can happen because you never know who you are going to meet.
So please contact him any time, because he really looks forward to meeting you and hearing any challenge that you may have for him.

Dear Craig, I am writing to highly recommend your services to others who are in need a real estate professional. I am very grateful for your help and find you personally to be exceptional individual. I do not know why you haven't hit some best professional 40 under 40 list, yet.YOU HUSTLE. In my personal opinion, hustle wins, especially in your business.Over the past couple of years, I have had the great pleasure of working with you on two opportunities . Both turned out great. But the thing that I might highlight, is that someone gave me your name on the first day, so I sent you an email at 730PM saying that I might be interested in renting or selling. We did not even speak, and by midnight you had all of the rental and sales comps to me. Your competitors were days later after even speaking with them . Your hustle didn't stop over the next two opportunities. You called me within an hour when you were sick. You are communicative, I do not believe that you ever communicated in a time more than 24 hours, and your actual response time was 1 hour in most situations.You understand the markets, you understand the contracts, you are flexible and detail oriented, and by the way, you happen to be nice too. In my opinion, real estate is both emotion and money. You have the personality to deliver both goals to any kind of buyer and selle r.I know that you have a very powerful team behind you, however,outside of process ease, it was actually you, not the team that made it happen.

Dear Echo Fine Properties team, This is to thank you all for your excellence and professionalism throughout the sale of our house.From magazine quality photographs to the gorgeous brochure, to the attention to detail in presenting our listing, we couldn't be more pleased. Your listings are a cut above the rest, and we believe that translates to better results for your clients.Jeff Lichtenstein assessed our property, negotiated our sale, and advised us on a listing price that was spot on. His experience and feel for the market are a major asset in both selling and buying a home, and we have benefitted from that expertise for several real estate transactions already.Craig Heger was outstanding. He showed our home, and ultimately sold our home, and then facilitated every step of our sale after we went into contract. His dedication and business ethic were so exceptional that our buyer has recommended him to family members for their next purchase. We look forward to working with him in the future again as well.

Craig, I want to thank you very much for selling our waterfront lot. I was very impressed with how professional and hardworking you were from the start. You took an unsellable lot that many top brokers in the area could not sell for five years, and you sold it in 4 months. You had a beautiful game plan and kept me educated throughout the process. I have been through many real estate transactions over the years and this deal was by far the easiest one. My husband and I did not have to do a thing. You quarterbacked everything brilliantly. Thank you for all your hard work.

We first met Craig in the summer of 2016, when he became our selling agent for our rental property in PGA National (a golf community in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida). Within a few months, Craig had our property under contract, for very close to our asking price, and with a closing date that allowed our tenants to finish out their lease. We knew that we wanted to buy replacement properties, and Craig's ability to understand our needs, and his patience while we looked at many possibilities over the course of a few months was much appreciated. In addition to being able to schedule showings on short notice, he is very knowledgeable about PGA National, so his advice as to which areas would be best for us was invaluable. Although we confined ourselves to properties in PGA National, I have no doubt that he would bring the same expertise to any area in which his client(s) may be interested.In addition to helping us with the sale and purchase, he has also given us service above and beyond that which we would expect of a realtor. (He recently went to our new property to ensure that the electric and water were ready to be turned on, and he has undertaken other tasks for us).For the above reasons, we recommend him highly as being knowledgeable, competent and reliable, and we certainly look forward to working with him in the future.

After an extensive search, we chose Jeff Lichtenstein and Echo Fine Properties to sell our home, because we noticed the following things about his realty firm:His firm had a high volume of sales in our neighborhood;His advertising material and photos of homes for sale were very professional;His listings seemed to have a shorter time on the market than other realtors; andWhen we were making a realtor selection, Jeff took time away from an out-of-the-country family vacation to talk with us.We benefited from all of the above and, as a result, achieved a relatively quick and above-market sale price for our home.While our home was on the market, Jeff’s team was very responsive. Blake and Craig provided much of the day-to-day assistance and worked seamlessly together. Someone was always available and made time for us when we needed them. Blake’s being personally there for showings/ inspections and his post-showing communication couldn’t have been more prompt, thorough or valuable. Craig’s attention to detail and ability to keep documents completion correct and on schedule ensured there were no glitches in the process.Still, Jeff was always available for counsel, guidance and negotiating at critical times. He made the effort to listen, understand, and be creative in meeting our needs. His extensive experience and skill in pricing, responding to offers and negotiating were invaluable.Even though our home value was modest by comparison, Jeff and his team gave us the same robust, thorough communication and professional services (photography, advertising copy and marketing brochure) that he gave his multi-million-dollar home sellers.After a sales contract was signed, their very efficient processes ensured no balls were dropped or momentum lost. Closing was smooth, fast and had no glitches. Every detail was taken care of.All-in-all, we know we made the right decision to select Echo Fine Properties and Jeff Lichtenstein as our realtor and would do it again in a heartbeat.
