|Craig C. Lewis
Throughout my career, I've tried to follow three simple rules: surround yourself with the best people available, aim for an outcome where both sides win, and uphold the truth at all times. At Prudential Commercial Real Estate, I've been able to do exactly that.
After spending two years in London, England, Craig relocated to Modesto as an Account Executive for Pacific Bell with a responsibility for real estate accounts across the entire Central Valley.
In 1979, Craig joined Stone Real Estate, the family-owned company that would eventually become Prudential Commercial Real Estate. In 1983, Craig assumed the role of President/CEO, sharing ownership with Thomas R. Stone and Ronald V. "Bud" Stone.
Since then, in addition to being involved in numerous residential developments, investment and commercial building projects and ventures, Craig has engineered the growth and expansion of a completely diversified real estate corporation that now includes commercial real estate sales, residential real estate sales, property management and mortgage and lending services.
In 1989, Craig negotiated the company's association with The Prudential Real Estate Affiliates. As a result, the company's offices located in Modesto, Manteca, Turlock, Ceres and Merced, are now part of a vast international network of leading real estate companies.
At the same time, Craig continues to be involved in important community initiatives focused on developing the Central Valley's economic base for years to come. These endeavors have most recently culminated in Craig being named the Modesto "Citizen of the Year" for 2001.
Craig and his wife, Harriet Manwaring Lewis, married for more than 25 years, enjoy an active family life with eight children.

Vice President of Operations
I've worked with several companies, in almost every phase of the real estate industry. After returning to Prudential California I can honestly say, It's great to come home again!
Sometimes the best way home is the long way. For Marcia McKinsey, that route gave her a background in real estate few other administrators possess.
Following her studies at Modesto Junior College, Marcia graduated from Fresno State with a degree in business. She was promptly hired as a founding employee at the new Modesto Banking Company in 1981. During her six years there, she earned a reputation as someone who could be relied on to perform virtually any function within the bank, from data entry to customer service, from management duties to public relations.
Marcia would put all of those skills to work in her next three positions, starting with her own small business in Dallas, Texas. But her heart remained in Modesto, where she soon returned to an office management post at Century 21/Freemark Development. After six more years (during which she earned her own real estate sales license), Marcia accepted her first position at Prudential/Stone Real Estate. Here she worked as our Escrow Coordinator, an intense and demanding job which keeps agents, clients, and lending institutions on track while the homebuying process moves through its regimented stages.
In 1998, Marcia left to fill in the last few missing pieces in her real estate repertoire. Moving to Stewart Title Company for a year, she worked as Administrative Assistant in support of the Division President. She handled everything from personnel training to payroll, title processing to employee supervision.
Combining that experience with the wide spectrum of skills she had accumulated over the previous two decades, Marcia became the irresistable choice when the V.P. spot opened at Prudential California. And the chance to return to Prudential, Marcia admits, was equally irresistable!
Now, rather than keeping several dozen escrows simultaneously on track, Marcia keeps the entire operation running smoothly and on schedule. And as intense and demanding as that can be, Marcia is clearly up to the challenge.
After all, she came home.
