Since beginning his career in commercial real estate in 2013, Craig has spent the vast majority of his time and energy working on behalf of numerous office and industrial tenants ranging from early growth stage entities and established mid-tier companies to national firms.  Craig has a passion for working as an advisor to veteran, women and minority owned companies, negotiating winning transactions for a wide assortment of occupying businesses and nonprofits throughout Maryland, Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.
