Craig has been a licensed real estate broker since 2002, and since that time has been consistently recognized as one of Chicago's top producers (top 10% citywide). He is a member of the local and national Realtor® organizations. His prior career in software and technology sales gave him the skills he uses today to focus carefully on a client's needs, and assemble the resources needed to meet those needs. Craig's work as a volunteer docent for the Chicago Architecture Foundation's famous River Tour, and enthusiasm for Chicago's architecture led him to pursue his career in real estate.
As a city resident since 1989, he has seen the dynamic changes in Chicago's north side neighborhoods first-hand. It's this experience and his integrity that have enabled him to complete over $100 million worth of transactions for buyer and seller clients. His practice is referral-based, and driven by satisfied clients and their recommendations to their friends and colleagues.
Raised in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, Craig purchased his first condo in 1998, and has since purchased and renovated a multi-unit building in Lincoln Square. As an investor and landlord, he stays tuned to the rewards and demands of owning real estate and rental property. The process of buying or selling real estate is one of the biggest financial decisions in life--it's Craig's goal to have his clients enjoy the process, and feel confident they are getting the best information, representation and advice available. Craig's experience and guidance have helped his clients navigate real estate changes with confidence that they have a trusted adviser on their side.

After spending time looking for my own home and experiencing the challenges and joys of the process, I decided I wanted to help people realize their dreams to own a home.
I'm a classic nerd who is in to the statistics and data of the market. These skills of analysis certainly help when breaking down the dollars and cents of a home decision.
I also have the heart of a teacher and know it is my job to help you learn all about the process of buying or selling a home. I don't believe in holding my knowledge "close to the chest." I want every client to have all of the tools and understanding they can so they can make informed, educated decisions.
Finally, I have a relentless drive to be known as a trustworthy agent. This is shown by the way I will answer honestly at all costs, return communications with haste, and go the extra mile to earn the trust of each client regardless of the size of the sale.
This approach has led to multiple customer service awards based on actual customer reviews and shown that I will act not only as your agent, but also your advocate, your counselor, your problem-solver and your friend.Whether buying or selling a home, I covet the opportunity to help you navigate one of the most important decisions you will make.
