I have worked with Craig for real estate transactions in personal and business, acquisition and sales. With hand on heart, I can attest to Craig’s dedication to his work in finding each individual the best fit in relation to price, location and property character. Having been raised here, he enjoys an above-average awareness of value and location throughout the Petawawa and Pembroke area. Coupling this knowledge with a personable, non-invasive approach to sales, Craig is an extremely effective real estate agent.

Craig provided first class service during the sale of my Petawawa. On several instances he far exceeded my expectations by helping to arrange numerous appointments, thus allowing me to meet the conditions of my sale on time. I found Craig to be very personable and genuine. He was very responsive all my inquires and never failed to follow up. His knowledge of the market and the Petawawa area is evident through the advice he provided and the details to which he pays attention. I highly recommend Craig!

Captain. Adjutant, Royal Canadian Dragoons

Craig was referred to me by dear friends. Being military we needed to sell as quickly as possible to affect our move. From the outset, we knew we’d made the right choice. He presented data on the general real estate market for our region and homes in our price range. Throughout our wait for a potential buyer, he provided feedback and data about the people who viewed the house so that we could make the necessary adjustments to increase its appeal. In the end, we never felt pressured and sold the house at a price that met our full expectations.

Chief Warrant Officer - Canadian Operational Support Command

Having attended high school with Craig over 20 years ago, he was a natural choice when the time came to move back to our hometown. He was quick to line up tours of the homes we requested, and also recommended additional houses that might be of interest to us.
Edmonds & Associates provided excellent and efficient services as the timing of purchasing our home was essential for us. Craig completed the required paperwork and worked with us through the process of purchasing our new home as well as support us in the long-distance transactions.
Craig and Edmonds & Associates made the purchase of our home a pleasant experience in our journey back home to family and friends.

Economic Development Officer

I worked with Craig to buy my first home in Pembroke. Craig made the process super easy and was a pleasure to work with! I really appreciate how much time he took to show me properties and how easy it was to schedule appointments with him. Since I am a newcomer to the area, I am grateful for how honest he is about aspects of Pembroke I am less familiar with. I would recommend Craig to friends and family, and hope to work with him again in the future… although I love my new home so much I’m not sure how soon that will be! Overall, Craig is an excellent realtor who provides and smooth and easy home buying experience.

Satisfied Client

Craig’s no-pressure approach and calm, professional demeanour made all interactions in the process very agreeable. After our first meeting, he completely had an appreciation of our expectations and demonstrated that throughout the sale. He truly understands the real estate market dynamics in the Ottawa Valley and gave unprompted, yet timely, advice. Although he is well-connected and attuned to current market conditions, it was his non-relenting efforts and infectious optimism that were the key factors on the quick turn-around of our house.

Happy Client

Craig was able to put me in a home that was exactly what I was looking for.

I was out west at the time and was looking to retire in the pembroke/petawawa area. Due to the distance, everything was done online and through texts or email. Craig was my eyes and ears for properties in my price range and guided me towards a home that suited my wants and needs.

He was always able to answer my questions and when I did see the house for the 1st time when I received the keys, I couldn’t be happier with Craig and the effort he made with the home.

Thank you Craig for all that you did.

Recent Buyer

In December 2012, the opportunity to purchase a second home presented itself and I contacted Craig to conduct due diligence for me and negotiate with the selling agent. Craig immediately undertook the assignment and presented a professional report on the subject property. Due to his extensive experience in the housing market, Craig was able to finalize the negotiations and we were able to take occupancy in February 2013.
I would strongly recommend Craig Edmonds as an agent to anyone seeking to purchase or sell property in the P


Craig is both a great friend and a Realtor. He exudes professionalism, pays great attention to detail, has a thorough knowledge of his industry and market, and is an individual who REALLY listens and provides valuable advice.

Mortgage Agent

Regarding Craig Edmonds, Real Estate agent:

I whole-heartedly endorse Craig Edmonds in his role as a Real Estate Agent with Royal Lepage Edmonds and Assoc.

Craig is friendly, responsive, and as a product of Renfrew County, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone with more experience in the local real estate market than he has.   

Our first exposure to Craig’s professionalism and thoroughness occurred after we attempted to sell a recreational property not once, but two times.  In each instance, we engaged a long-time, well-known local real estate agent.  We were very disappointed in the performance of each of these agents.  Our disappointment was not only in the fact that the property did not sell (for that we cannot blame the agent), but during the process (each approximately 8 months long) we never heard from either agent, unless I contacted them for an update.  With Craig, this was definitely not the case. We received unsolicited monthly updates from Craig detailing the number of requests for information, the number of calls, the number of requests for walkthroughs, even the number of “hits” on the online advertisement.  We could not ask to be better informed than we were!  Through Craig we were able to sell this property.  The ultimate measure of our opinion of Craig’s service is that the following year we had need of real-estate services again.  I only made a single call and that was to Craig! This second time, Craig was also very successful in selling the property (in very short order).    

In both instances, Craig took the time to meet with us, walk the properties in question, and to discuss what our needs and expectations were with respect to pricing, timing, and any other issues we might have.  Craig was always very responsive to our communications which was much appreciated and helps to make the negotiation phase of the sale as painless as possible. 

In closing, Craig has become our “go-to guy” for our real estate needs, a position that is well earned!

Past client, (multiple times).

I hired Craig to help us with our first house purchase. He was excellent, providing great service, advice and assistance to walk us through the process. For buying or selling a home I highly would recommend contacting Craig!

Local Business Owner

“We recently sold an estate house with Craig. While this was a stressful time for us, he made it practically stress-free. We felt 100% confident by having Craig as our realtor. He was candid, quick to provide honest answers to all our questions. He clearly explained the process and what we could expect. He sold the house at the full asking price within 4 days.

Craig is one of the BEST realtors we’ve ever worked with, his professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness, and ability to close the deal was Outstanding!!”
