Fast turnaround when you need it

My financial services career began in 2003 when I was lucky enough to gain experience with my mentor and my Dad whilst completing formal university qualifications.  
After that time, I worked in credit and managed a small team.  This honed my skills and allowed me to develop the qualities needed to be a senior loans processor/administrator and then finance broker with home loan connexion.  In March 2021, I established Ever After Home Loans to further cement my career with my business partner Eleanor Crosby.  So, whilst the name might be new the experience and familiarity is not.  
I work with the 4 big banks along with over 35 other lenders.  This is so important when it comes to providing solutions and choices during these often-uncertain times.  It is my job (and my passion) to sort through those options and present my clients with the top choices based on their circumstances.
If you need someone to help guide you through the finance steps to achieve home ownership or simply review your current situation then you have come to the right place.

More about Eleanor!

One of my most familiar comments when I chat to be people is “Please tell me all about you” ……...well this is a little bit about me first so that you may be comfortable with next steps.   

I have been in the banking and finance industry since I was employed at the CBA back in 1996.  Since then, I have been lucky enough to gain varied experience across other lenders, the tax office, accounting, and financial planning as well broking.  

After spending time at both Aussie and Home Loan Connexion my long-term business partner Lauren Conde and I decided it was time to branch out and thus Ever After Home Loans was established.  So as whilst the name might be new the experience and familiarity is not.  

One of the key things I love about finance broking is that we can truly add value and make a very real difference in our clients lives.
