Craig Dellio was born in Toronto, Canada, into a family where selling was a part of life.
Craig’s father began his own custom tailored menswear store in 1951 at the age of 23, using his immigrant father’s $5000 life savings and a similar sized bank loan. At the age of 12, Craig began working at his father’s store on Saturday mornings, pricing merchandise, stocking shelves, and selling clothes.
Throughout high school, Craig worked with his father, selling everything from shirts and ties to cashmere sweaters to high end luxury clothing, while observing and learning how to develop lasting client/seller relationships and efficient selling techniques.
Craig graduated from McMaster University in 1979 majori ng in Geology. He was hired by Gulf Corporation, and moved to Calgary, Alberta to drill oil and gas wells in Western Canada.
Geologists sell their “ideas” for drill sites to company management to explore for oil and gas, and if successful, will positively impact the Company they work for. Craig “sold”, his ideas to his employers, convincing them to drill 8-10 wells each year at costs exceeding $400,000 per well.
In 1987, Craig moved back to Toronto to join his father’s company and spent 27 years marketing, promoting, buying, selling and overseeing the operation of a successful independent menswear business.
In 2014 Craig retired and moved to Plano, where he lives with his Texan born wife, Tessa. He spent the first two years exploring the state, including Amarillo and the Palo Duro Canyon, South Padre Island, Fort Worth, El Paso, Lake Conroe, Austin, San Antonio and the Hill Country. He enjoys enriching his life with Texan culture, food and art.
With numerous listings, sales, rentals, leases, and securing apartments for his clients, Craig looks forward to working hard and establishing new and rewarding relationships with his clients at Rogers Healy & Associates. Whether you are interested in selling, buying, investing or leasing, he will be working when you’re not, and working smart, and working hard for you.
