"Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart." - Zig Ziglar
Craig was born in Kelowna, BC on Friday, February 13th and raised amongst 4 brothers in a small town now known as Lake Country, just 20 minutes north of Kelowna, where his parents still reside today. Sports were a huge part of life growing up something he believes every child should get to experience because it not only teaches leadership and devotion but how to work in a team environment. Craig loves living in a four season destination so when he's not helping people buy or sell Real Estate you can find him taking advantage of the outdoors and spending time with his significant other Lynn along with their beloved 4 legged friends Oscar and new addition Charlie. A natural competitor, Craig enjoys playing sports such as golf, squash, tennis, hockey and his relatively new favourite pass time ultimate frisbee.
After graduating from George Elliott Secondary in Lake Country with a great interest and passion in not only sports but Law, Physics, Mechanics and Computer Science, he decided that starting his Electrical Apprenticeship was a direction he wanted to take. At the age of 22 he became one of the youngest Interprovincial Journeyman Electricians in the Okanagan Valley working successfully in the trade for the next number of years. He soon discovered that he needed a new direction, something that required more of a personal touch and social interaction, but wanted to build on the enormous construction experience he had developed. As an Electrician he became very familiar with the ground up construction of custom homes along with large scale commercial and industrial developments, this eventually drew Craig to buying and selling homes personally in and around the Kelowna area.
Craig bought his first home when he was only 21 years old in the beautiful town of Peachland, BC. It was a 4 bedroom, 2 bath lake view home complete with a basement suite to help with the mortgage. He slowly began updating the property over the next couple of years eventually renting the home when it was time to upgrade and buy a second property. He bought, sold and renovated many homes over the next 10 years and enjoyed it immensely. With a natural interest in investing and a passion for Real Estate it was an easy decision to focus on an exciting yet challenging career. This is what brought Craig to Century 21 Assurance in Kelowna, a 100% Canadian owned company that shares the same goals and values as himself, where he can do what he enjoys most.
