Craig Curelop

Craig Curelop started out as a house hacker in Denver. After reaching financial independence in 2.5 years after three house hacks, he graduated from his W2 job at BiggerPockets to pursue being a full-time real estate agent inspiring others to do the same.

In his first year of being a real estate agent he did over 100 deals. That’s an exhausting year. He realized, that if he was going to continue onward, he’d have to create a team; hence the FI Team. In just three years, Craig has grown a team of over 20 agents that do $100M+ per year in volume.

In addition to the FI Team, Craig has a rental portfolio of 24 units along with being invested in multiple syndications, and coaches agents to grow their investor-friendly real estate agent teams!
