We are well into September and the first day of fall is looming! Decisions must be made...do we put our bathing suits away, do we pull out our cozy sweaters, is it too early to decorate for Halloween! Before we know it the leaves on the trees will turn rustic shades of reds and golds and the flowers in our yards will ready for winter.

Craig understands how hard work, dedication and focus are paramount to accomplishing a goal. He learned this firsthand while earning his bachelor’s in Construction Management Technology at Purdue University, during which he played football on a full scholarship. He applies these lessons to how he works with his clients, ensuring their satisfaction throughout the entire process.
As a Glen Ellyn native, Craig decided to move back to his hometown after college to raise a family and make it his home once again. Today, he and his wife’s love for older houses, his construction background and her design background has translated into rehabbing and bringing them back to life. His three daughters have followed in his footsteps of being active in sports the arts and the community.
“I am very excited to be back in Glen Ellyn to combine my passion for the community, knowledge of the area and construction, and my drive to see others turn their investment from a house into a home.” In addition to helping his real estate clients, Craig proudly serves the community as a firefighter in Wheaton.
