With both his father and grandfather being involved in the stock and station and real estate industry, it was inevitable that Hugh would follow.
Hugh has spent the majority of his working life in real estate, property development and sales, as well as being a licensed mortgage and insurance broker.
Hugh lived and worked in Australia for over twenty years and experienced many real estate markets, excelling in off-the-plan apartment sales on golf resorts along the Eastern Seaboard States.
Returning to New Zealand ten years ago, Hugh sold rural and lifestyle properties in the Waikato before he and partner Kim moved to the Manawatu.
Hugh has a reputation for excellence and success and building relationships with clients and customers, many who remain close friends to this day.
Here are a few of Hugh's many testimonials:
"I have known Hugh Crawford for about ten years and have both sold property through him and used his advice when purchasing property.
I have found Hugh to be extremely hard working, diligent, informed and highly reliable.
His professionalism and integrity has added value to any transaction I have made using his services.
I have no hesitation in recommending him.
