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.  

Benefits of choosing me as your broker:Easy: I do the hard work for you.• Quick: I compare hundreds of home loans in minutes.• Complimentary: No charge for our appointment/s.• Comprehensive: I search from a panel of 30+ lenders including the major banks.• Detailed: I look at the features of a loan, not just the loan rate.• Personal: My service is personalised to your needs.• Professional: I am a fully trained and accredited expert broker.
