Outside of going away for college I have spent my entire life in the Conejo Valley. I have seen it grow from a “post Mayberry” type small town into the incredible area it is today. I went to school here, got married here, and am raising my 2 kids here. I love my community and I continue to be impressed by the people that live here. I truly believe that there is no better place to live and raise a family.
Because of my over 47 years of living and exploring the Conejo Valley there’s very little that I do not know about it. I have been to every park, school, hiking trail, most restaurants, and all of our incredible cultural centers and open space museums.
I have been into just about every housing tract that we have here and many of the custom estates as well. I am confident that my area knowledge combined with my over almost two decades of real estate experience I can help you achieve your real estate goals.
Remember, when making one of the largest financial investments of your life, experience and knowledge count and who you hire matters.
Craig is a great, professional real estate agent. He assisted my wife and I with our first home buying experience and was responsive, patient (we had a lot of questions), and very knowledgeable about the entire process from start to finish, including following up once the purchase was completed. I highly recommend Craig to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home, whether its your first home or your 5th one.

Craig has been wonderful through the process of me purchasing my home. We had a 21day escrow and during the quick process, Craig was organized, on top of all aspects of the process and 100% available when needed. His negation skills were perfect. After our initial meeting, Craig totally understood what I wanted and needed in a home. I will definitely recommend Craig to all of my family and friends.

Craig helped us from start to finish in the sale of our home. He knew every aspect of the selling process. From recommendations for home improvement to advance notice of showings, he was accurate and professional the whole time.

Craig was recommended to us from a long time friend and co-worker, Matt H. We found Craig’s local knowledge and selection of properties to be exactly what we were looking for. He always kept our family needs in mind, and helped us make the right decisions, even when we couldn’t see which way to turn. When the chips were down, and inventory was tight, Craig always supported us. Whenever we were losing hope, Craig had a caring way of helping us see our way to the future. We went through tough times on the actual purchase, and Craig was always there to help us close the deal with our interests at the front. We now live in our dream home, with the best schools and great community! Craig has become part of our family, and will be our agent as long as we live in Ventura County!

We just recently purchased a home and Craig was our realtor. He is amazing! If it wasn’t for Craig we would not be in our dream home. Not only is he an amazing guy but he knows everything there is to about the real estate market and will get the deal done! Buying a home is one of the biggest things you will do and I’m so thankful that I had Craig who had our back. Many realtors just want the commission but Craig is different, he just wants to see his client happy and will go up and beyond. When we moved into our house it wasn’t cleaned and there was literally three dumpsters of trash that had to be hauled away. Craig had a cleaning crew come in to clean my house and he fought to get us reimbursed for the costs of the dump fees. He fought really hard for us even after the close of the house. There was also a huge beam that was left and instead of just letting us deal with it which most would have done he posted on his personal Facebook page trying to get someone to take the beam. It ended up that he paid someone to come and cut it and remove it. I am indebted to Craig for all he did and more importantly for getting us in this house. Other realtors I spoke to had said there was no way we could get this deal done but Craig did it. He’s a true professional and one thing I love about Craig is that he gives back to the community. Thank you Craig for everything you’ve done to get my family in this home. We would never use anyone else and will recommend Craig to everyone we know. He is simply the best realtor I’ve ever worked with.

Craig sold this home almost immediately after putting up the sign. He is a pleasure to work with and very professional. He answered all our questions and was very helpful during a difficult time. We really appreciate all Craig did for us throughout the process. We will definitely use him again!
– Cyndi and Chris
What turned out to be an extremely complicated transaction, Craig was the reason why not only it executing and getting us into the house of our dreams, but he made it fun, painless, and essentially stress free. Craig exuded honesty, trust, a sense of humor, hard work, and a tireless pursuit of our best interests…values and traits that seem to be lost these days in this industry. We highly recommend Craig and will definitely use him as our real estate agent in the future. Craig is simply the best!

For years, my husband and I discussed the possibility of returning to Ventura County but had no idea if it was financially possible. Approximately 6 weeks ago we contacted Craig on the recommendation of previous clients. During our initial contact he questioned us about lifestyle, desired type of housing, budget, preferred geographic location within the county and any mobility issues that needed to be considered. Within a very few days Craig called to discuss results of his initial investigation of areas that met our needs and he forwarded listings in those areas that were representative of what we might expect to find there. At regular intervals he has continued to call and e-mail and send new listings for us to review. We always feel that we have his full attention and that he is highly interested in us. Calls are always answered or returned very promptly and his thoughtful questions and recommendations demonstrate that he has listened to us carefully.
Our FL home has now sold and we are leaving for CA next week with every confidence Craig will find us the right home in the right community. This man is the consummate real estate professional who has exceeded our every expectation! It seems clear that personalized service and complete customer satisfaction is the foundation upon which his business is built.

I have worked with Craig for over four years and not only does he know the area well but he will give you his 110% to do everything to help you. There is no other realtor in this area that I would ever use other than Craig. He’s truly a realtor that will work for you. When we let Craig know we were looking to purchase a home he had comps that day and already had appointments scheduled for us to see homes. He made the time around our hectic schedule and since he knew the area and market so well he was able to negotiate within a reasonable range. A very great experience! Thank you Craig!
