About Roger

Q. What inspired you to become a Mortgage Broker?

A. My experience in the financial services and property sectors made becoming a Mortgage Broker a natural progression and the opportunity to help people achieve their property ownership dreams will always be inspiring for me.

Q. What is the best part of being a Mortgage Broker?

A. I love solving problems, finding solutions and thinking outside of the box. As a Mortgage Broker there are plenty of opportunities to do that!

Q. What have you found to be the most challenging aspect?

A. The ever-changing lending environment and keeping up to date with and on top of those changes.

Q. What is your most memorable client experience?

A. There have been many and they all have the same theme – the look (or sound sometimes!)  of delight from a client when you have done the best job you can and achieved the result that they wanted.

Q. How would you sum up being a Mortgage Broker in three words?

A. Cool, Calm and Capable!

Q. If you could have dinner with any three people (alive or dead), who would it be?

A. Elvis Presley (I don’t know why… I’m not even really a fan but I think it would be an amazing experience!), King Henry VIII and my Nana  (who would be very pleased that I invited Elvis). 

Q. Complete this sentence: If I Wasn’t in Mortgage Broking, I would be…

Who can Roger help?

First Home Buyers

We help first home buyers achieve their dream of home ownership by reviewing their finances and helping them find the right loan. It’s never too early to start this process, and making plans early on can set you up for success.

Home Owners

It doesn’t matter if you’re planning to build or simply buy an existing property. If you are looking to build your property portfolio, we are here to help and make sure you get it correct the first time.
