Craig Sargent; is a Bay Area native, born and raised in San Mateo and have lived up and down the Peninsula.
I attended Serra High School and graduated from Carlmont High School in Belmont, and still, maintain a strong network of people from both areas. I went to the College of San Mateo to play baseball for one year and then transferred to Arizona State, where I was a pitcher of the club baseball team for the remainder of my college career. After I graduated, I moved back home to CA and spent 4 years in San Francisco in both the Marina District and North Beach, where I entered the world of radio to pursue my dreams of becoming a sports broadcaster and host. Fun fact: I was heavily influenced by my father, who was the Director of KNBR at the time, a former radio host and currently Director of Broadcasting for the San Francisco 49ers the past 15+ years, as I always wanted to be just like him.
Over time I watched the world shift to a more digital approach when it came to streaming and consuming content, so I made the switch to managing partnerships for LIVE365, an internet radio platform where brands, celebrities, and content owners create branded channels, gaining a lot of great experience. Wanting to stay in the sports industry, I had the opportunity to be an account executive for the San Francisco 49ers for two years at a very exciting time when they were opening-up Levi’s Stadium, and supported Super Bowl 50 at our new stadium; during my time there I specialized in selling high-end suites, seats, events, and private dining at Michael Mina restaurant within Levi’s Stadium. My experience at the SF 49ers eventually, lead me to an opportunity to change the game in the sports ticketing world and I took the role of VP of Sales at IDEALSEAT with my current Real Estate partner Sean Sabean; we were the “Air BnB of sports ticketing,” focused on customizing the sports experience with data. I gained extensive experience raising. millions in capital for this budding start-up.
I joined Compass and Palermo Properties because I personally wanted to be a part. of a team with experience, a strong Bay Area presence, and a team that’s well respected, and I’m certain those Palermo Properties embodies all three. With 20+ with years of experience, I am excited to learn and grow with this team constantly. I am looking forward to working with you and serving the Greater Bay Area that I’ve been lucky enough to call home most of my life.
