Craig Patterson – 30 years of results

Principal and Sales – 0407315620

With more than 30 years of experience in real estate sales, which has rewarded Craig’s clients with intimate access to knowledge and expertise of what is sought when it comes to matching the right property with the right customer.

Craig is renowned for his honest advice and excellent reputation. So much so that our customers keep coming back to us many years later, even decades later!

Their belief is that the person with the name on the door should be fully responsible. Craig is a proud small business owner. Not part of a franchise.

Craig believes that real estate is as much and more about people, than just the property. Rather than speed his clients through the door of a franchise, Craig wants to get to know the complete buying or selling requirements and help people achieve what they actually want. It’s one of the reasons Craig’s customers prefer him over the express aisle! Many sales are discrete and ‘off market’ along with successful Public Auction Sales & traditional Private Sales.

Craig is also passionately involved in The Mill – housing development in Warrnambool. Find out more about The Mill project here.                                                                       “A little bit like bringing a piece of Collingwood and Fitzroy to regional Victoria”.

It is not about us . . . it’s about you and your expectations. Our staff are dedicated to identifying and achieving your goals with you.
