Lady Boss | Director & Principal Mortgage Broker
Meet Deanna, or De for short, because who has time for extra syllables? She’s the Captain Marvel of More Than Mortgages (MTM) and has been named the top female broker in the ACT for an impressive six consecutive years. Not just a local hero, De’s made it onto the national scene with a Top 100 ranking for eight straight years!
Thirteen years ago, De entered the world of mortgages and quickly started building her empire of almost a billion dollars in home loans. A member of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA), she also has a Certificate IV and a Diploma in Financial Services under her belt. But don’t let these formal titles fool you; she’s far from stuffy or proper (if you need a reality check!).
When it comes to shiny plaques on the wall, De has quite a collection. Latest under her belt was in 2023 when she and her rockstar team won ‘Mortgage Brokerage of the Year’ and she snagged the ‘ACT Mortgage Broker of the Year’ awarded by the Specialist Finance Group.
But why does De do it all? Simple: she wants to help you get the keys to your dream home without you having to sell a kidney. It’s this genuine desire to make homeownership accessible for everyday people like you that drives her to continually exceed expectations, both hers and yours. She’s like your financial fairy godmother, just without the wand.
When she’s not making mortgage magic, De has an appetite for adventure. She’s the proud owner of a 16-acre property where her two dogs rule the roost. She’s also a fisherwoman, a golfer, and she can shake things up with either some salsa dancing (the dance, not the dip—though who’s to say?) or belting out a tune on karaoke nights down at the local.
And get this, in 2023, she didn’t conquer Everest, but she did climb Gokyo Ri in the Himalayas. Yep, 5,357 metres, with no prep. Talk about an overachiever! But the climb did more than test her stamina; it transformed her life and led her to start organising charity treks for underdeveloped Nepalese villages. De also spearheaded MTM’s efforts to sponsor the education for three young Nepali girls, providing opportunities they might not have had otherwise.
So that’s De in a nutshell. She’s the financial guru you never knew you needed and the adventure hero you didn’t know existed. Trust us, you’ll want her in your corner and we think she’s pretty awesome, if we do say so ourselves.
