Craig Knizek

Craig Knizek is a multi-faceted real estate entrepreneur. He currently serves as Co-Managing Partner for both the Sherman Oaks and Calabasas offices. He has been named byThe Wall Street Journal as among the top 250 brokers in the United States for the past three years. He also founded Prescott Properties, a real estate design/development company that renovates and builds spec homes.

Craig grew up in the West San Fernando Valley, attending El Camino Real high school, UC Santa Barbara, and the University of Stirling in Scotland. He lives in Sherman Oaks, and has two daughters who attended the Oakwood School in North Hollywood, and now study at UC Berkeley & Pitzer College.

“I love where I live, and I enjoy serving my neighbors, friends, and their circle of friends. It’s rewarding being involved with clients whom I like, in such a huge moment in their lives. I share the excitement with them. Selling a house can be a positive catalyst of change for people. I also really like that my kids see me helping clients achieve that goal.”

Craig spent twenty years working in the film/television industry, collaborating with illustrious creative talent, shepherding and producing their creative vision. As Producer of Sony/NBC’s hit series “Mad About You,” and the original Associate Producer of “The Simpsons,”Craig negotiated deals and schedules with high-ranking studio executives, talent agents, managers and attorneys throughout the entertainment industry. He’s proud to be able to translate his skill set as a realtor to helping his colleagues from the entertainment industry.

Craig and his wife, designer Allison Knizek, have built fifteen “spec” homes, a skill that informs every piece of advice he now offers clients about how best to allocate resources to a home as they prepare to sell, or to those wondering how to budget desired remodeling projects for a prospective purchase.

“As a television Producer, my task was to shepherd my writer/director’s vision, to understand their creative desire- to “get it’ and, to make it happen…on budget, and most definitely, on schedule. That’s how I approach my job as a realtor. I understand and truly value the relationship of being a trusted advisor.”

Craig proudly serves on the Child Life executive committee, and administers the Adam Hunter Knizek memorial fund at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
