Craig Vaughan

craig 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. It was during this time working and studying abroad that Craig became aware of a gap in the market for specialist providers of home loans for expats, whether Australian Expats living abroad or foreign expats living in Australia. Craig is married, lives in Brisbane and enjoys traveling to places off the beaten path. In 2008 Craig completed the Mongolian Charity Rally by driving from London to Mongolia via Russia and Kazakhstan and is planning a similar expedition for 2012.
