Priority People

Craig Mackay

Finance Broker / Director

Craig joined Priority in 2010 after working for Westpac for 2 years. Craig wanted the freedom to really help his clients achieve the best outcome when they look at structuring their finance and providing more than just one lender solution. Craig’s range of experience in Residential lending, Investment property lending, Commercial lending and equipment leases allows him to help with all facets of your finance needs.

Craig is a local man and enjoys spending his spare time with his young family or running around the hockey pitch (even if it is more of a meander these days).

Craig enjoys helping people achieve their property dreams whether you are a first home buyer, need a bigger home or an avid investor Craig would love to help your dreams come true.

Chris Wolter

Finance Broker / Director

Chris was born in Sydney NSW but as a child followed his family throughout the state as they owned and operated several rural properties before eventually settling in Tamworth.

Professionally, Chris followed a career in sales and media before studying to become a fully qualified mortgage broker, joining the Priority team at the start of 2013. Chris believes achieving positive financial outcomes for his clients is the most rewarding aspect of his role at Priority – “Purchasing a home or real estate asset is the biggest thing many Aussies will do in their lives. Helping that dream become a reality and the satisfaction that comes with that is the reason I enjoy coming to work every day”.

Personally, Chris loves spending time with his family who are all dedicated basketball fans working towards their next American adventure together.
