Craig’s career highlights include a tenure as a top-producing ranch sales agent at Country West Ranch and Land LLP, followed by 15 years as the Montana Managing Broker at Live Water Properties, where he earned multiple top-producing sales agent recognitions. Licensed in Montana with multiple notable transactions.

His approach combines intricate market knowledge with a steadfast commitment to each client relationship.

“Craig has been a respected colleague for nearly 20 years,” said Mike Swan. “His skill set and knowledge base in the hunting, fishing, farming, and ranching world is vast.  He established himself early in his career as one of the top brokers in Montana from both a production and professional standpoint. We’re not a company that is ever looking to just add bodies. We are highly selective about our team members and the qualities and skill sets they bring to the table. Having a broker of Craig’s caliber and reputation throughout Montana is a tremendous addition for us. He embodies our company’s culture and embraces our values”
