Craig comes to us with 34 years of municipal public employment.

Craig and his wife, Jan, are both lifetime residents of Albert Lea and have made Albert Lea their home for their entire 34 years of marriage. They feel very blessed to be a part of this community. They have two sons, Mike and his family who live in Milwaukee, and Jeff, who lives in Albert Lea. In Craig’s free time, he enjoys spending time with his family – especially his granddaughters – Emmie and Brynley, golfing (most of the time), running, racquetball, snowmobiling, and just being active. Craig is excited to be a member of the CENTURY 21 Atwood professional sales team and looks forward to assisting you with all your real estate needs.
