    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Originally from the beautiful river town of Batesville, Arkansas, I moved to Little Rock for a short period time after high school and finally relocated and planted roots in Jonesboro, the place that I call HOME with my wife, Emily, and our four kids.

    After graduating from Arkansas State University, I entered the working field with a Graphic Design degree that took me from a designer and laborer in the printing industry to a VP of Product Development for a consumer goods company for the past 20 years. During my time as a VP, I spent years traveling overseas to negotiate pricing and manufacturing of products to bring to the retail shelf.

    I am an avid sports fan and spend much of my free time supporting local sports. I have spent many years coaching and just being a fan to local youth sports. I love helping kids learn sports and seeing them excited as they excel over time. I grew up being an Arkansas Razorback fan and still support them to this day, but have added a true love for all sports of the Arkansas State (Indians) Red Wolves.

    I am confident that I can bring my past work experience and love for my community to help make the home buying or selling process easier for you. I simply love to help people and enjoy the thrill they get from the success. I would appreciate the opportunity to earn your trust and respect as your next REALTOR®. Give me call when you're ready to get started.

    Craig was very insightful on my first home buying experience and very helpful with any questions I may have had. He was very quick to respond and get the ball rolling. We are very thankful for all of Craigs hard work and the tenacity to get the job done.

    If you're looking for an agent, you can't go wrong here! Craig is a fantastic and trustworthy person to work with. He was very patient and generous to share both his knowledge and experience whenever I had any questions or concerns, which I appreciated a great deal as a first time buyer. My work schedule can be a bit crazy sometimes, but he was very accommodating and able to work around it.

    Chancery gave Craig 5 stars out of 5
    Craig has gone above and beyond for my wife and I. I could recommend a realtor more than Craig. He showed us our dream home with us even asking to see it because he had a feeling that it qould be a great fit and knew it was available. He has even gone out of his way to check on us after closing to make sure everything is going great and to see if he can help in anyway. He truly is amazing and passionate about what he does.

    I've dealt with hundreds of realtors in many states and Craig is so far above every single one of them. Easily the best realtor in the United States. Take my word for it, he will take care of every need you have and I cannot thank him enough for how awesome he was in helping my family find exactly what we were looking for. Just call him and you'll see how amazing Craig is and how he will be the best teammate you'll ever have!

    Chris gave Craig 5 stars out of 5
    I have know Craig for many years, before he became a realtor. He has always had a very detail oriented personality. My wife and I worked for nearly a year with him to get our old house ready to sell and to find a new one. He definitely took care of ALL of the little details which kept us on track. We bought a new construction house and he even assisted us with picking out custom items like cabinet hardware, etc. Craig definitely went way beyond what we expected from a realtor.

    I assure you, you won't work with an agent who works harder, pays more attention to detail, or does better work than Craig. He truly thinks of every way to make your buying/selling process as easy as possible. For fact, he's friendly, trustworthy, and dependable.
