When we’re talking about your finances, you need to be able to trust the person whose hands you’ll be placing your dreams in and know they care about you and your future. I believe that trust begins with getting to know your broker.
So, I’m going to tell you my story and lay everything out on the table. When you get to the end, you’ll know exactly who I am and what I strive to achieve for people every day.
It all started when…
I was working for one of the Big 4 banks where the sales targets were crazy, the opportunities were rare, and I could see the focus moving away from the customer and onto profit-making. Taking away that person-centred approach to banking didn’t sit well with me, so I quit.
I quit when I was the household breadwinner with a 2-year-old son. Bold move, but it paid off (money pun).
I jumped on an opportunity to become a Mortgage Consultant and rapidly went from consulting to becoming the Personal Assistant to five different brokers, learning their lender policies and rates inside out. 10 years later, I made the leap into self-employment as a broker, and I’ve never looked back.
