The Shephard Family

The Craig McKenzie Team here on Whidbey Island has been an absolute blessing to our family. Their entire TEAM assisted us in the home buying and real estate process. They have the mortgage companies, the inspectors, the real estate agents, and the power to make movements. The Homes For Heroes Program that they also represent gives money back to Veterans and their families. They also contribute ON TOP of that! I have never felt more relieved about the home buying process. They handled everything. RECOMMEND WHOLE HEARTEDLY!

My husband and I were PCSing from South Texas and knew we wanted to buy a home at our next duty station. I reached out to Alicia and from day one I knew it was going to be a positive experience. There was a lot of uncertainty of when we would move and when it was time to jump on a house Alicia went out of her way to make her self available. Highly recommend her to anyone moving to the area. It will put you at ease having someone like Alicia in your corner.

I have been thinking for a while how to properly articulate the way I feel about this team. When we first went to speak with them we had not yet gotten a pre-approval and weren’t sure what we were looking for. We were not the most ideal clients, however, never once did they ever treat us as we were second rate, or anything less than their most valued clients. They are the only ones on the Island that participate in the Homes for Heroes program, which as a veteran was a huge deal to me. I don’t think I have the lung capacity or musical ability to sing their praises as loud as they deserve.


"The Craig McKenzie Team has helped us immensely in purchasing our very first home. Jim was always very quick to respond to our questions and/or concerns, and made the whole process smoother than we had ever hoped! We love that we can still call/text Jim for advice and questions even after closing. He is always helpful and prompt, and we so appreciate his support! Buying our first home was definitely scary but the entire team made it less stressful and our experience with them has been nothing short of great! Great team of people to work with. Highly recommend!"


Jim, Debbie, and Miranda made the process of finding a house and finalizing the process seamless and stress free. They were always available to assist with any issues that arose and to answer any questions. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I was partnered with The Craig McKenzie Team through the Homes for Heroes program and got to work with Alicia Turner. Living remote at the time she went above and beyond to get the information I requested. Her persistence and dedication led to finding me the perfect home. I'd definitely recommend The Craig McKenzie Team to anyone both on or off Whidbey Island. The entire office was there to answer all of my questions whenever I needed something and continues to follow up. I can't thank these guys enough.
