About Us


Our business rebranded to Loan Market in 2014 after being established in Queenstown for over 10 years.

We pride ourselves on an open and honest service where you will gain a full understanding of how the lenders view your position along with the best strategy to achieve your goals.

Whether you are looking to secure your first home, investment/commercial property or business lending we will always tailor the best solution for you and partner you with the right lender at the right time.

We are very passionate about our industry and raising awareness of how we actually add value to our clients. The advisory sector is growing significantly and we see ourselves at the forefront of that growth with hard working, genuine and well placed advice.

We look forward to working with you soon.

Our support team


Gabriella Hislop - Customer Services Manager

After moving from Australia to New Zealand, I worked as a banker for several years before joining the Loan Market team.

I am passionate about helping people and making things as easy as possible for customers. I absolutely adore the scenic Queenstown and the beautiful people who call it home.

I have a love of all things organic and natural health. In my spare time I love going on trips with my daughter and family to soak up all New Zealand has to offer

Penny Ford - Customer Services Manager


I started with Loan Market as a Customer Service Manager in 2021. Before that, I spent over 14 years working in banking and lending and have worked with a wide range of clients, from first home buyers to investors and mostly helping customers with houses under construction.  In between these two roles I worked in our family owned vineyard.

I really missed helping customers and being involved in  lending  and when an opportunity came up to join the team at Loan Market I knew this was the right fit for me. This role allows me to support the Mortgage Advisor in providing  a seamless customer experience where clients can have confidence and knowledge that we support  them through this lending process and make it easier for them to understand   what options will work best for them while always keeping them informed.

In my spare time I enjoy horse riding and helping out on our vineyard.

Jodi Stevenson - Customer Service Manager


I have been living and working in Wanaka for the past 15 years and am the Customer Service Manager for Wanaka, working alongside Pete Eastwood.

I have an extensive background in lending, having worked in the banking industry as a lending consultant for 15 years, and I am passionate about getting the best outcomes for my customers.  With experience working inside the banks I understand first hand that there can be a few challenges you will go through to get a successful outcome, and I can help you to achieve this with as little stress as possible.

My previous colleagues would say I am a fighter when it comes to getting the best outcomes for my clients, and I don't mind the hard work required to make this happen.

I am looking forward to using my previous experience and knowledge to support you to achieve your financial goals.
