Your local Mortgage Adviser servicing Christchurch
I have 15 years lending experience including a business and commercial banking background and more than 6 years as a Mortgage Adviser specialising in all types of housing finance.
My background provides me with expertise in housing loans, first home buyers, construction loans, turn key build finance, investment properties, vehicle finance, asset finance, business and commercial finance. Because I have worked with so many different people, with such a variety of lending scenarios, I can soon work out how to help my new clients too.
I have access to all of the main banks and numerous other finance company options. Once finance is approved I negotiate the best terms and interest rates I can for my clients’ specific situation.
I can help clients anywhere in New Zealand but I primarily work with people in the Selwyn district, Christchurch city, Otago, Central Otago, Wellington and Auckland areas. My office is in Rolleston.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and socialising with friends. Our three children keep my wife and I busy following their sports and activities. I play cricket, swim for fitness and I follow various sports teams. Whenever possible I try to get on my trail bike in the beautiful back country of the South Island.
