Being new to the industry, what do you like most about life as a mortgage broker?

What I like most is helping people and the flexibility of being self-employed. 

What do you think of our mentoring programme?

I think the program is great, David is a big help teaching me how to think like a broker and constantly testing my knowledge to ensure that I fully understand what it is I am working on.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I run a general store with my Parents on the Central Coast. Some of my hobbies include occasionally being a DJ at clubs. I also like to read about personal development and psychology and of course, Netflix. The Blacklist and How to get away with Murder to name a couple!

What challenges are you facing with the current climate?

The paces that lenders are changing their policy and building a network in the digital age.  

Describe what you were like in high school in 3 words…

Quiet and Awkward….aka… The Quiet Achiever!

What is your key for success?

Customer Focus, ensuring that I fully understand what the expected outcome of my client is and doing my best to enable them to get that. And of course, being kind.   

What makes you laugh?

Hmmm…. British humour 🙂
