About Stuart Crawford
The Crawford Team was formed to build a platform that delivers an extraordinary level of service to our valued clients, unmatched in our industry. We operate a Five Star business as true professionals, working tirelessly to add genuine value to those we are fortunate to serve, showing our appreciation each step of the way. After years of hard work and continuous system improvements, I am proud to say we are one of the most reputable and well-known mortgage teams in the area. This achievement was only possible due to the clients that have allowed us to assist them – something I do not take lightly. I was born and raised in the Southwest, growing up in Texas and New Mexico. I attended Arizona State University and earned a degree in Finance at the WP Carey School of Business. After graduating from ASU, I started my financial services career as a mortgage banker with the privately-held firm, Waterfield Financial. During that time, I was selected to attend the acclaimed mortgage academy, XINNIX, where I graduated in the top of my class. I was part of a high-caliber team in the Scottsdale branch that became the company’s No.1 Office for nationwide, earning us a place in the top-producers “Waterfield Club”. The company was then acquired by a substantially larger entity, American Home Mortgage in January of 2006. While at American Home Mortgage, I expanded my business experience by working on large builder accounts and achieved President’s Club status as one of the top producers in the company. In 2007, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to join V.I.P. Mortgage in its infancy with only a handful of employees to assist in the growth and branding of the company. The experience at V.I.P. has been exciting over the years, as the company has grown from a single office to multiple branches in several states with hundreds of employees. When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and friends, and doing anything that makes me smile or laugh.
