With the firm since 2005, Craig Terrien is an agent whose goal is to encourage the preservation and restoration of architecturally significant homes with a focus on the San Fernando Valley. He founded one the first curatorial Real Estate websites in Los Angeles, which has enjoyed great success and been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Dwell Magazine and Daily Variety.
A champion of the architecture, laid-back lifestyle, and sunshine of the San Fernando Valley, Craig enjoys introducing transplants from over-the-hill to all that the Valley has to offer. He has enjoyed many years of connecting sellers of architecturally significant homes to appropriately sensitive buyers. Specializing in Mid-Century Modern architecture, Craig has sold homes designed by the likes of Richard Neutra, Ray Kappe, Edward Fickett, Palmer & Krisel, Richard Dorman, and Rodney Walker, to name a few. His website, SFVmod.com, showcases the local architecture that is on the market, as well as those homes he has sold in the past.
Prior to his career in Real Estate, Craig was working in post-production for film and television, after having earned a BA in Audio Engineering from the University of Colorado. A love of architecture brought him to Real Estate. When not selling homes, you’ll likely find him training for his next marathon, volunteering at the local elementary school, or pouring Manhattans for his neighbors.
Having restored several architectural homes himself, Craig’s hope is to facilitate a better understanding of great architecture and design for those of all income levels, promoting its preservation and helping find ways to maintain its relevance in the face of issues such as energy efficiency, drought, and cultural changes.
