Trusted Adviser

I have spent 11 years building home lending products and creating processes that have helped hundreds of thousands of people to purchase their first or subsequent home and in many cases, to own it outright. Whilst this has given me a great deal of satisfaction, I now want to help people more directly. Working as a professional mortgage broker is great because it has provided me with the perfect opportunity to get to know my customers on a personal basis.

In my new role, I have much greater scope to help you achieve your personal goals. I am here to offer you a broader product set across multiple lenders, to ensure you get the right product and process for your particular needs and financial circumstances. My job is to deliver you with a custom-made home loan – one that is specifically tailored to your needs and goals, because everybody has unique requirements. From my experience of over 20 years in the mortgage and finance industry, I know that no single lender has a product suite that suits everyone and I am here to use my experience to analyse the available options and help you choose the one that will be most beneficial to you. If you are worried that your unique requirements or circumstances may pose a challenge, then don’t be. Unlike the banks, mortgage brokers do not use a one-size-fits-all approach to home loans. I will work with you to help you find an appropriate solution and do everything I can to ensure your home buying process goes as smoothly as possible.
