Craig has been helping people buy and sell real estate since 2003. After graduating from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Craig played music professionally for 10+ years and landed in Panama City Beach in 1997 to play with the popular showband, "Clutch." 

He got pulled in to real estate in the early 2000's and had been in the business full-time ever since. Craig focuses on making sure his customer's goals come first then works hard to get them where they want to go.

"For me, it is always about the buyer or seller I am working with. It's THEIR money, or THEIR house or THEIR condo...THEIR life really. I am just here to help them. Closing a real estate transaction is complex anymore. I work hard to make sure everything is done right so the customer can relax and enjoy the process."

When Craig isn't working in real estate, he likes to exercise, play golf and still plays the saxophone on a regular basis. 

He lives in Panama City Beach with his wife Christy, his children Ava and Roman, and their dog Meatloaf.

 "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."   - Aristotle

Samantha is originally from Mobile, AL where she graduated from the University of South Alabama with a degree in Marketing Management. Her profound love for the beach, along with the lasting memories of friend and family trips to the Emerald Coast, inspired she and her husband to move back to their southern roots—the Gulf Coast.
