Craig Lescoe

Broker/Owner National Realty Centers
Craig Lescoe graduated from Michigan State University in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Building Construction Management. Where he specialized in residential real estate and obtained his license.

Then after five successful years as an individual agent, during which time he acquiring and managed over twenty investment properties. Craig helped launch and build Michigan’s #1 real estate team for 2000 and 2001.

In 2002, needing a new challenge Craig accepted a position as Managing Team Leader for the Keller Williams Ann Arbor, Dexter and Saline Market Centers. After five years with KW, Craig felt like he had earned his Master’s Degree in Real Estate and was ready to take his career to the next level.

In 2007 Craig founded National Realty Centers. Now please keep in mind, in 2007 the Michigan real estate market hit rock bottom. Property values were at an all-time low; the foreclosure rate was at an all-time high and record levels of agents were leaving the business.

Needless to say, it was not an ideal time to launch a new real estate business, but Craig knew it was the perfect time to help others, it was the perfect time for his new agent-friendly-business model.

Craig has always believed that in order to be truly successfully, he would need to find a way to help others be successful. That’s why he designed his business model with the agent in mind.

Today, National Realty Centers has grown to 285 agents in 3 locations. Birmingham, Livonia, Northville

“Our level of success in both business and life is in direct proportion to the number of people we help be successful”

I came over to National Realty Centers as a cost saving move verses paying the high rates at the national chains. The money I've saved is incredible! What I wasn't expecting is the high level of staff support and the ongoing marketing and technical updates. I couldn't be happier working at NRC.

I feel Craig has an "HONEST" interest in my success. The support he has given me has been way above and beyond my former broker. I also like the fact that the commission structure is the best available, that I am aware of, in the State of Michigan. I never feel that I am working for Craig, but working with him. What more can you ask for? Thank you Craig!

I was a Real Estate office manager in the Ann Arbor area during a portion of the time when Craig was manager of his former office. He brings the same work ethic, tenacity, and dedication to the National Realty Center venture that he displayed back then, and has continued to improve and increase personally and professionally. I couldn't be more pleased that I have the privilege of being part of his NRC family.

I have been a National Realty Centers Agent under Craig's supervision since April 2010 and I describe him to others in three words...Great, Great and Great! He has not waver since I first met him! He runs a well-organized, efficient, diverse, friendly and family like brokerage firm out of three locations (Livonia, Northville and Birmingham).

Craig is a person of high integrity and morals. He is reliable, dependable, patient, knowledgeable, and available and goes that extra mile to make sure that he and his team support you in any way that they can. You can count on him to get back with you in a timely manner and give you the right answer. He is not afraid to say he does not know something, but is always willing to find the answer.

Craig is technically savvy, stays abreast of what is happening in the real estate industry and timely shares this knowledge with the agents on a continuous basis through training, new systems and procedures via blogs, webinars, classroom sessions, on-line support website, one-on-one, etc. All of this is done so that we as agents can continue to grow and focus on what really matters... that is to be more productive in helping our clients to buy and sell real estate while building lasting relationships that keep them coming back and referring others. Craig continuously work at providing the environment that allows us to do just that!

I can go on and on about Craig, but his reputation precedes him. I have not heard anyone say a negative word about him. He is a great guy that is fair, honest and always willing to help which makes him...Great, Great and Great!

National Realty Centers (NRC) goes above and beyond when supporting their agents. The compensation structure is most definitely one of the best in the trade. While this is an obvious key factor that any agent is concerned about when choosing the right broker, the additional support cannot be ignored. Craig does a fantastic job with providing updates within the industry by hosting live online tutorials/classes. The entire support staff is friendly and helpful. I am thankful for being a part of such an amazing group of professionals.

National Realty Centers is a great place to work. Craig is always there for us whenever we have questions. The resources offered here are high tech, resourceful and immeasurable for such a phenomenal commission structure. Another deciding factor for me was the fact that our broker does not compete for business with his agents! NRC is always keeping us up to date with major news and weekly online meetings, all news including legal updates, mortgage information and relative realtor magazine's displayed in our back office. Craig is constantly rolling out new, innovative ideas to help us and many times, at no extra cost to his agents. Being in the business since 2001 and having experienced several other brokerages throughout the duration of my career, NRC is the best, bar none!

I joined National Realty Centers in March of 2008. I could not have made a better business and personal decision. The business part is a no-brainer based on the compensation plan. The supportive staff and leading-edge technologies are icing on the cake. From a personal aspect, I absolutely feel like part of a big family that is invested in my growth and success. NRC is truly the right fit for me; and I encourage all agents who are serious about their career to join our team.

Associate Broker
I joined NRC in 2008 and I have never been sorry that I made the move. As a full time associate broker with over 30 years of experience I feel that NRC allows me use my experience while not weighing me down with large office commitments. The office staff is knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant and I always feel like they have my back. Craig and his in-house marketing team are consistently working to stay ahead of the curve where it comes to better exposure of our listings and easier ways to keep the lines of communication open to our clients.

I moved my license from one of the large national brokers in 2009 and it was the best decision I made in my real estate career. The support and marketing I receive from NRC for my listings far exceed anything my other broker ever did for me, and at a fraction of the cost! Craig and the rest of the NRC team are truly committed to helping you be as successful as possible.

Craig congratulations on ten years of NRC! I am proud to be part of the team. Thanks for all your help and support. Agents who are just starting in the business have no idea what an advantage your business model is to their professional success. We "older models" appreciate your all-in approach to giving your agents every available tool to soar! Thanks again...

Back in 2007 I was I unhappy with the real estate office I was with and unexpectedly stumbled upon Craig. And from the first luncheon I knew I wanted to be with National! I transferred my lisenced and never looked back. He is trustworthy, helpful, professional and makes you feel part of his family! NRC is the place to be?

I can't say what a pleasure it has been since I joined National Realty Centers in March of 2016, should have done it years ago. Craig's approach to running a real estate office is spot on, everything that you need to succeed is provided. The website is very helpful and continuously updated. NRC provides you with support before you even realize that you need the support. All of the technology is taken care of for you, which is helpful for someone like me that is not as tech savvy.
