Craig grew up a world traveler; curious about everyone and everything. He was born in Japan to an Air Force family and within a few years returned to the USA. Craig crisscrossed the country several times as the family moved from coast to coast, eventually living near San Francisco, California. From there it was on to Italy. Living in Naples proved an eye-opening experience as Craig was fortunate to have had his parents drag him into countless museums, palaces, cathedrals, 2000-year-old ruins and into most of the major European cities. After Italy, the family moved to Rome, New York (how ironic, right?) and for four years he enjoyed life in beautiful upstate New York. After graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Craig spent ten years in Durango, Colorado as a Certified Ski Instructor and Realtor. Of course, he also found a little time to enjoy many outdoor pursuits such as fly fishing, mountain biking, sailing and hiking in the San Juan mountains.
Craig met his wife, Rica, right here in Arizona and helped raise her amazing family. Time flies and the kids have all grown up, but Craig and Rica still keep them close for family dinners, family outings and trips to California and Colorado to beat the heat. Craig and Rica are both dance enthusiasts and for many years have been going around Scottsdale and Phoenix to dance Argentine Tango, Salsa, West Coast Swing, Hustle and County Western.
In 1985 Craig moved to Arizona and has been a licensed Real Estate Agent and a Certified Real Estate Appraiser for over 35 years in the Phoenix metro area. During this time he’s seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, but through it all Craig says “Phoenix is still rising.”
Being a Realtor has given Craig the opportunity to meet all types of interesting people and to see the most amazing homes; from barrios to mansions which all make up the fabric of our community. Craig’s extensive travels enhance his ability to instantly relate to all of his clients, no matter where they hail from and no matter what their background.
Asked about why he joined 72Sold/Hague Partners, Craig recently stated: “New tools and methods are being developed every year which give real estate agents superpowers to serve their clients. Our 72Sold way of selling a home is one of those tools: it’s ground-breaking, cutting-edge and people are just loving it.”
