5 Questions with Craig Segien: Always Improving

8/13/2019

“5 Questions” is our way of turning the spotlight on our talented and accomplished employees in the Boston office who make stellar contributions both at work and on their own time.

5 Questions with Craig Segien: Always Improving

After graduating from UMass Dartmouth in 2010, Craig Segien first started with Cushman & Wakefield as a Commission Accountant, then transitioned to the Valuation & Advisory group in 2014 and has been there ever since, focusing on multi-family valuation.

Craig took the time to give us a little insight into his professional role, life with a new baby and some of his favorite spots in Boston. Thanks, Craig!

What do you like most about your job?

We have a talented group here in VAS and much of the team has been in this business for a number of years. This experience, along with the quality and timeliness of our work, helps us stand apart from our competitors. Despite being appraisers, we also have a fun and tight knit team that has lunch together on a regular basis. In addition, Rob Skinner and his wife Krista, host our team and our families at their house a few times a year and its always a great time to get together.

When you’re not working, where are you and what are you doing?

My off-time has changed drastically over the last couple of years. My wife and I had our first daughter, Caroline, in October of 2017 and are now fully occupied with dance, singing, swimming and Gymboree classes. My second daughter, Emma, was just born about 3 weeks ago so we are adjusting to a new baby and having quality time as a family. One of my bigger challenges now is getting out, but I try to play hockey one or two times a week.

What does CRE in Boston look like five years from now?

We’ve had an upward trajectory for several years now, fortunately for Boston, we have a very strong employment base as well as a number of great colleges and universities driving demand for housing and the life sciences. It’s hard to predict but the industry keeps growing and I’m optimistic about what the next five years will bring.

What’s the professional accomplishment you’re most proud of?

I’m always trying to improve in terms of client service, productivity or by earning the MAI designation, which is a time-consuming process. With a growing family this can be tough, but the results will be worth it.

What’s your favorite spot in all of Boston?

Now that we’ve moved to the suburbs, I don’t venture into Boston for dinner too often, but when my wife and I come in for a date night we always enjoyed going to Toro in the South End. If it’s not a date night and we have our daughters with us, we make sure to visit a restaurant that serves chicken fingers and-or mac and cheese.
