My name is Craig Laurenson and I am Texas Realtor in the Fort Hood area. I have not always been a Realtor. I started out back in 1989, graduated from High School, and 5 days later left for Basic Training in the U.S. Air Force. I spent 4 years in the Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller. I went in as a Field Artillery Surveyor but my ultimate goal was to become an Officer. After finishing my degree I applied to become a Warrant Officer and a Black Hawk Pilot. I flew Black Hawks for 10 years, amassing 1000 flight hours, 600 of which were in combat in Iraq. I have been stationed all over, including Texas, Alaska, North Carolina, Alabama, New York, Korea, and Iraq. I retired after just over 20 years of service. I decided to become a teacher and taught for 3 years but my heart was not in it.

During my 3rd year of teaching, I pursued my passion for getting my Realtor license. I have been a Realtor for 3.5 years and I have not looked back. I am married (10 years in February) to an awesome woman, Wendy and together we have 4 amazing grown children. Some of the things that I love to do are working out, mountain biking, building things/home projects, camping, hiking, driving my DeLorean, and most of all playing hockey. I recently found a ball hockey league in Austin and it is awesome.
