About Craig Townsend

Craig Townsend farm and ranch experience has a long family history. He proudly continues that heritage through ownership in his family’s farm and ranch now under its six generation of management.  The values of integrity and a strong work ethic learned from his agricultural background has never escaped Craig. This is evidenced in his procurement of an appointment to the United States Naval Academy, where Craig excelled earning a Bachelor of Science in Economics.  Acknowledged for his leadership, he fulfilled several roles throughout his service around the world earning recognition for his efforts. Craig is a decorated veteran, with over 11 years of military service.  

Craig further obtained and refined his business expertise at the University of Colorado Boulder where he obtained his Masters in Business Administration with emphasis in Real Estate Finance and launched his 11-year career in Real Estate.  His experience in the procurement of development land, entitlements, contracts and financing deals across the country play a crucial role in his successful transition into the Land business.  

The value of teamwork cannot be over emphasized, as a rural child from western Kansas, a Naval Academy graduate and seasoned land professional Craig understands trust is essential to a successful pursuit of goals. Craig possesses an innate ability to analyze a deal from all sides helping both buyers and sellers get the right answers to their questions so they have the confidence to make an informed decision.  Craig’s service to his clients, his community and Mason & Morse Ranch Company are of the highest standards you will find in this industry. 

When not serving the needs of his clients, you can find Craig engaged in his local community serving as a Chapter Advisor to FFA, serving as a board member to the Steamboat Springs Rodeo Board, Community Ag Alliance, VFW and President of Historic Routt County.

Craig and his wife Ranada happily call Steamboat Springs, Colorado home where they enjoy taking in the outdoors and endless recreational opportunities of the various seasons. Craig is licensed in Colorado.
