Craig Vaughan

Director and Mortgage Broker

Craig Vaughan has been an expert in bank policy and procedure since 2006. His company, Professional Home Loans, assists Australian Expats living abroad with home loan finance for Australian properties. Professional Home Loans also helps foreign expats who are living in Australia as temporary residents with home loan finance. On a personal note Craig graduated from law school in 2006. During law school Craig studied at Nottingham Trent Law School in the UK on scholarship from QUT.

Craig is married, lives in Brisbane and enjoys traveling to places off the beaten path (like the time he drove from London to Mongolia via Russia and Kazakhstan as part of the Mongolian Charity Rally!)
