Phil Swan

Licensed Real Estate Agent / Director – Robert Crawford Property Management

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 a business partner at Robert Crawford Real Estate 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.

Robert 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.

There are currently no inspections available. Please return soon.

Friendly Manner

We have been in our family home for about 40 years and have not bought or sold a property in that time. Phil made us feel very comfortable with our decision to use Crawfords Real Estate and Phil for our sale. Phil has a very friendly manner and acted professionally at all times, he was only too happy to answer our many and varied questions. He kept us informed of all aspects of the sale. We appreciated his attitude and help during our sale process.

Agent of Choice

From the first time that I met Phil Swan I found him to be engaging, motivated and show great empathy surrounding the circumstances of the sale of my family home. Phil displayed superior knowledge of the market, trends, strategies to achieve a favorable outcome and communicated this effectively. Phil's successfully uses an inclusive approach with vendors, working together with the vision of achieving a positive outcome. Phil's prompt reliable service lead to the quick sale of our property at a price we were happy to accept. I would recommend Phil as an agent to any prospective vendors with the confidence in knowing that they will be well looked after and Phil will strive to achieve the best outcome possible outcome at all costs.
