Stephen ‘Craig’ Lariscy
Raised in a ‘furniture industry family’ in Sylvania, Georgia, Craig grew up acquiring a unique perspective on what makes a house a home. Upon selling his family’s Lariscy Furniture & Bedding business in 2014, Craig graduated from the Barney Fletcher School of Real Estate, became a licensed REALTOR® and launched into real estate sales with broker Jeff Raines at Statesboro’s Low Country Auction & Real Estate where enjoys showing clients the best that the CSRA and Low Country has to offer.
Perhaps remarkably, much of Craig’s 36-year career was not spent in real estate, but with marketing and advertising. Upon graduating college, Craig moved to New York City to work in marketing and advertising. His first 3-years were at the Ayer Advertising Agency in media planning and negotiation. His next 6-years were as Advertising Sales and Marketing Account Executive at Turner Broadcasting’s CNN. For 10-years Craig served as Senior Advertising Sales and Marketing Account Executive at E! Entertainment Television.
With his unique professional background in marketing, advertising, sales and negotiations - pared with his skills in communication, negotiations, client relationships and out-going personality and passion – make Craig an ideal real estate partner for client’s who want a marketing plan tailored specifically tailored to their unique property.
Craig is an enthusiastic and active member of the community. Last year he served as 2015 President of the Screven County Chamber of Commerce and was awarded the prestigious Agnes Tebeau Volunteer of the Year Award. He also co-chairs two of Screven County’s biggest events, the annual ‘Wild About Screven’ Festival and the annual ‘Christmas Extravaganza’ Festival.
He is a cum laude graduate of The University of Georgia with a B.A. in Journalism and of Screven County High School. Craig lives in Sylvania and loves horticulture, swimming and all things outdoors.
