Craig Ekedahl, agent
I’ve always been a creative professional. A sculptor and, for the last 12 years, a television producer. As a producer, creating compelling stories from often normal lives is an enjoyable challenge. Producing was a natural progression for me from sculpting. Both are about building. Something new and exciting from something routine. Creating a narrative designed to get people where they want, or need, to be in the end.
Some time ago my wife and I started building our own story. We purchased a wonderful house. Our child grew up in that home and it is where some of my best memories were formed. Sensing a soft spot in the market we have since purchased and sold nine properties of our own. Many of those are multi-unit properties that we hold; Income from them will help send our daughter to college and finance our retirement. I love buying in Los Angeles. Each neighborhood is different and unique and full of potential. Our properties are scattered across the East Side and there isn’t one of them I wouldn’t live in myself.
I’ve become a Realtor to help other people build their stories. Whether it’s finding and buying their dream home, buying an investment property to provide some financial stability for the future or selling a house to take advantage of an up market… I’ve done it and I enjoy it! I understand both the human side and the business side of a real estate deal. It’s not always easy but when a great deal comes together or a person finds her forever home, it’s incredibly rewarding. It’s what I do. And it’s a great start to a brand new story.
