On what he finds most rewarding: Professionally I find it most rewarding when I take care of my clients on a level where their loyalties refer their friends and family members and they consider me the family Mortgage Advisor. Personally I find it rewarding dedicating myself to a healthy lifestyle. My motto is, ‘a healthy body equals a healthy mind. On helping clients be successful: “My thought process on helping clients is very simple. If you’re not in the business to help your clients succeed, what are you in the business for?” Who has inspired him: “Coming from a single parent home my inspiration has come from my mother. She has instilled my moral compass, integrity and ethics. Showing her through my success, she did an excellent job in giving me all the tools to succeed in life and business.” On his priorities: “My highest priority is my family.” On his interests: “In my spare time when school is in session I teach an after school program called ‘Money Smart.’ It teaches the value of the dollar to middle and junior high students by looking at their earning power compared to the cost of living. Also, I coach a basketball team of middle school students at the neighborhood YMCA. In addition, I enjoy chess, wine, biking, working out and traveling. I also of course enjoy my friends and I am a great cook!”

Great professional service

Craig was instrumental in me and my wife buying our first home together. I had a foreclosure, due to being laid off for a year, and without his assistance and knowledge of the buying and credit process, we would still be renting to this day. I believe he went above and beyond his basic duties, he spent extra time working with me to help clean up my credit to insure we would get the best interest rate. He was able to get us a great rate, even with my low score, and we were able to move into our new home.

Over the next few years, continuing to work with Craig we were able to increase our credit score and refinance our home a couple of times with lower interest rates each time. When we were ready to purchase a new home, he worked with us to insure the price was within our current budget and was able to secure a wonderful loan. He is also very knowledgeable in the VA loan process to insure a smooth transfer from one home to the other.

We are very pleased with the service and professionalism Craig provided us and will continue to work with him for all of housing finances in the future.
