Craig K. Powell is a 5th generation Sacramentan whose family has been providing fine apartment homes to Sacramento residents since 1939. Starting in that Depression year, the matriarch of the family, Gladys Powell, then a single mother, built the Cottages on O Street, a 14-unit community of charming rental cottages in Midtown Sacramento that remain in the Powell family to this day.
Craig is a 1977 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley’s Hass School of Business, and a 1981 graduate of the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, graduating summa cum laude. He practiced corporate and securities law in Sacramento on a full-time basis from 1981 until 1997.
Craig is a member of the California State Bar, the Sutter Club, the Midtown Business Association, the Land Park, Sierra Curtis Park and Winn Park Neighborhood Associations, the Rental Housing Association of Sacramento Valley, the California Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association.
Since 1995, Craig has served as the general partner of Powell Properties, L.P. and oversees the management and operation of his family’s rental properties. In his spare time, he enjoys literature classes, European travel, book collecting, writing, biking, swimming, auto touring and politics. He also makes an acclaimed martini while serving as host and bartender at occasional parties held at the Villas Encantadoras’ Tiki Lounge.
