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. After that, 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 across four different states.
The FI Team's Big Hairy Audacious Goal is to reduce the U.S. retirement age by ten years from 65 to 55. They are doing this by coaching, guiding, and mentoring early-stage investors to achieve financial independence in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Now, rather than helping 100 people per year, they can help hundreds (if not thousands of people per year).
In addition to The FI Team, Craig has a rental portfolio of 24 units along with being invested in multiple syndications, and coaches agents wanting to grow their investor-friendly real estate agent teams!
