Phil SwanLicensed Real Estate Agent / Director – Crawford Real Estate & Robert Crawford PM
I am passionate about people and building long lasting relationships with them. I love living in Newcastle and am very parochial about how great it is to live in such a wonderful part of Australia.
I pride myself in building strong rapport with clients due to my professionalism, honesty and high work ethics.
Prior to becoming the business owner of Crawford Real Estate and business partner at Robert Crawford Property Management I worked at Newcastle Permanent Building Society (The Perm) for over 10 years in business development and relationship management, in-fact the last 5 years as the Treasurer.
Having worked in the finance industry for over 20 years mostly in the Financial Markets sector, I have gained extensive knowledge of how the mortgage market operates and how this relates to the Reserve Bank of Australia when it is setting the official cash rate which influences the interest rates banks charge for mortgages. This has a major impact on the housing market when it comes to people buying and selling their homes which can be very stressful and with my knowledge I help my clients understand the process and lessen the stress.
My passion for getting the best results for my clients is matched by my passion for supporting local charities such as Variety the Children’s Charity.
Crawford Real Estate provides services including property sales, property management (rentals) and will work with clients for all their requirements relating to real estate.
Away from work, I love spending time with family and friends, travelling, collecting wine, playing golf, watching the Newcastle Knights and enjoying the lifestyle the Newcastle region has to offer.
