About Us

Our brokerage's success happens because of our shared goals and positive culture. Our way of thinking, achieving, and living is a collective mindset which consistently puts our clients' best interests first."  — Creig Northrop, Founder and CEO, Northrop Realty.

Our Start

Real estate is a part of Creig Northrop's DNA. His knowledge and expertise, along with his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park, solidifies his understanding of what people want and the emotional decisions they make based on their needs.

Our Foundations for Success

In 2000, Creig started the Creig Northrop Team. Their motto is, "If you're going to do it, you might as well be the best." With that mindset, Creig and Carla dove headfirst into establishing a team and maximizing its recognition within Maryland. Carla's extensive background in marketing and law was utilized in developing an award-winning in-house marketing department and cultivating the company's culture of "everyone matters." Creig's focus was on managing the business and building a top-selling team. They weren't afraid to ask questions and take inspiration from other leaders in the industry. Their commitment to learning and growth resulted in the Creig Northrop Team becoming the #1 team in the nation an unprecedented three times! 

Accomplishing the pinnacle of performance as a real estate team, Creig and Carla sought new levels of success. In February 2018, they announced that the Creig Northrop TeamTM would become Northrop Realty, A Long & Foster Company. Today, Northrop Realty is a full-service brokerage that employs more than 200 energetic professionals -- all of whom offer distinct specialties focused on ensuring extraordinary service to their clients.
