A passion for helping people, using our in-depth knowledge of banks and lenders to ensure our clients get the best financial outcomes.

We specialise in the structuring of finances for residential homeowners and investment property investors. In Commercial lending, we specialise in Property investment, construction/development, Health, Professional services and Real Estate.

The ability to make peoples dreams become reality, whether that be buying their first home, their dream home or their first investment property. Educating clients how to create a lifestyle and a secure financial future.

How long have you been at The Promenade

We moved from a home office to The Promenade in February 2016.

What do you like about being based here at the Promenade

The proximity to CBD and Jetty, whilst enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and creek outlook.

What trends are you seeing in the mortgage sector

At present in the mortgage/home loan industry, there are many factors impacting on borrowers which are as a result of an uplift in the property market, regulatory limitations on Lenders by APRA, government policies etc.

There are daily changes which affect borrowers such as interest rates changes independent of RBA cash rate, investment lending limitations, borrowing capacity etc. It is our role to be informed on these changes and navigate impacts so we can educate and provide our clients with personalised finance solutions.

What is the process to getting My Mortgage Manager to help a potential client

It is best for a prospective client to contact us and book a consultation via phone, social media (Facebook/Instagram), or via our website or Mobile App: https://1af3.app.link/?brokerId=1-T069DV.

During the consultation, we discuss what your financial and personal needs and goals are, now, short term and long term. Then we research the many different products from a range of 30+ lenders to ensure we provide the right solution that meets your needs and goals. We’ll do the paperwork, manage the application process right through to settlement. We then remain in constant contact via ongoing management to ensure our clients remain with the market-leading product and interest rates.

Anything in particular tips for those with a mortgage

A second opinion maybe the best opinion.

What do you like to do on your days off

Pilates, family time, and attend Jetty or Bellingen markets.


Thanks, Christine and Craig.
