The CR Maryland team is proud to be Maryland born and raised! Craig Reich established CR Maryland in 2004 as CR Property Group. The company focused on buying, renovating, and reselling homes. Within a few years, CR Maryland became one of the largest home renovation companies in the northeast. As the company continued to grow, it expanded into a full-service turnkey real estate investment company that buys, renovates, resells homes and buys, renovates, and leases rentals.
With the experience of over 2,000 transactions, we have an unparalleled network of resources and relationships that we use to purchase and renovate houses. We have the advantage of performing high quality, modern renovations within an accelerated timeline and a premium ROI.
We are one of the only turnkey investment companies that can truly ensure our properties’ quality and high potential ROI for investors because we don’t outsource renovations or property management. Unlike other turnkey real estate investment companies, CR of Maryland has a hardworking internal team dedicated to rental recruitment and management. We operate a rental portfolio of over 300 properties that are fully renovated and occupied.
CR Maryland’s core values are the foundation of everything we do. The culture of CR of Maryland is built around a set of core values instilled by our founder Craig Reich. We have been able to maintain and grow this culture because we hire to our core values. Each team member not only understands our values, they have embraced and lived them long before they became part of our team.
Passion | Community | Integrity | Empowerment
Unlike most “house flippers”, we don’t just give a home a “new coat of paint” only fixing the obvious cosmetic issues.
Quality is everything. We renovate 100% of the house: the roof, siding, electrical, HVAC, mechanicals, plumbing, foundation and more. We introduce modern designs, energy efficient appliances, materials and technologies. With more than 2,000 renovations, we have the experience to operate an efficient construction process and with the highest quality control procedures. The result is a stunning and reliable CR Maryland home.
We are a full-service turnkey real estate investment company with a full-time team and support staff.
