“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” ~ Phil Jackson
Lady Boss | Director and Principal Mortgage Broker
Deanna (De) is the Director and Primary Mortgage Broker here at More Than Mortgages (MTM). Currently ranked no.1 female broker in the ACT (a title she’s held for 4 years now) and no.63 nationwide (Mortgage Professional Australia Top 100 2020), De has ranked in the Top 100 in the country every year for the past 6 years.
De started in the industry over a decade ago and has organised over half a billion dollars worth of home loans. De is a member of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA), and has her Certificate IV and Diploma in Financial Services (mortgage broking).
Most recently, De and her team won “Business of the Year 2020” at the BX xCellence awards in Sydney. De has also been listed as a finalist in 2 categories for the Better Business Awards 2021, and is looking forward to collecting a winning spot in June 2021.
De’s drive to consistently meet and exceed her own and her client’s expectations comes from her desire to help everyday Australians get into their own homes. Read more about De’s story here.
Outside of work, you’ll find De walking her two dogs around her 16 acre property, riding her motorbike, catching up on some salsa (dancing that is, not the dip!), fishing, scuba-diving, travelling or supporting her fiancé Andy in his love of AFL (Go The Cats!!).
Deanna is a credit representative (CR 504972) of Mortgage Specialists Pty Ltd (Australian Credit Licence 387025)
You can reach De on 0448 000 976 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Da BOM | Director and Business Operations Manager
Natasha (Tash) has over 8 years’ experience in the industry working alongside De for much of that time. Tash officially became a director and shareholder of MTM in February 2021, hence her title of Da BOM (Director and Business Operations Manager).
Tash is a member of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) and has undertaken her Certificate IV and Diploma in Financial Services (and it’s worth mentioning that she had a call from the assessor regarding the outstanding quality of her submission). To top it all off, she also has a degree in Finance! She is one smart cookie.
Tash’s role is to oversee the entire loan operation, train new staff, and keep De in line! Not only is Tash the “behind-the-scene’s machine”, she’s now a Director and shareholder/part-owner of the business. Tash is also a mortgage broker in her own right and looks after her own as well as many of De’s repeat clients. Tash is the glue that holds MTM together which is why she is an integral part of Team MTM.
Outside of work, you’ll find Tash travelling the globe, indulging in good food and wine, or taking care of her small suburban farm (keeping Bunnings in business – she has dogs, chickens, bees, veggies, and enough fruit trees for an orchard!). She also has a property portfolio comprising 3 houses so far.
Natasha is a credit representative (CR 517781) of Mortgage Specialists Pty Ltd (Australian Credit Licence 387025)
You can reach Tash on 0455 551 556 or email@example.com.
Mortgage Broker | All-round Legend
Matt is the newest member of team MTM and with almost a year of mortgage broking experience behind him, he’s quickly become a valuable addition to the team.
Matt provides support to De and her clients, and is now starting to build a clientele of his own. Matt is a member of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) and has completed his Certificate IV in Financial Services and Diploma in Financial Services. Matt is a property investor himself and he now sits alongside MTM’s director and senior broker (aka Lady Boss) to learn his craft from one of the best in the country.
Outside of work, you can find Matt playing in his local cricket competition, mountain bike riding and snowboarding in the cooler months. Matt also enjoys pretty much any water sport activity, playing the occasional round of golf and attending live music events.
Matt is a credit representative (CR 518601) of Mortgage Specialists Pty Ltd (Australian Credit Licence 387025)
Here’s what one of our clients had to say about Matt:
Matt was receptive, informative, responsive and just over all a good guy (as per his signature block). I will recommend him to anyone looking to refinance or get a new mortgage. After having a really crappy time with another broker, Matt gave me faith back in the industry. I honestly had a great experience so I would not change it. Thanks heaps Matt, I truly wish you so much success in this industry, you have my business for life. – Tania, Harrison, ACT ~ April 2020
You can reach Matt on 02 6188 4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just. A. Legend
Elliott (Elli) joined the MTM team in 2019 and quickly became an important cog in the MTM machine. With her strong work ethic and customer service focus, it wasn’t long before Elli set her sights on becoming MTM’s next qualified mortgage broker, and we are pleased to say that is exactly what she did.
Elli is now a member of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) and has her Certificate IV in Financial Services and Diploma in Financial Services. Elli sits alongside MTM’s director and senior broker (aka Lady Boss, De) to learn her craft from one of the best in the country.
Elli is a property investor herself, with a passion for helping the average Aussie buy their own home or investment property.
Elli has the drive and determination to achieve whatever she wants in her life which is why she was able to save and buy her own home (on her own). She has also walked the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal and the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea, and she has travelled to 5 out of 7 continents in the world, often on her own! When Elli’s not at work, you will find her at 5am out on Lake Burly Griffin going for a row or bike ride, nursing a concussion from playing soccer, or snuggling with her little bulldog Mable.
Elli is a credit representative (CR 528329) of Mortgage Specialists Pty Ltd (Australian Credit Licence 387025)
Here’s what one of our clients had to say about Elli:
We both want to thank you for your excellent service. We want to thank Elliot especially for her dedication and for the fact that she managed to raise the standards of all the other parties involved, due to her thoroughness and professionalism – Jed Cannon, St Helens Park NSW ~ Jan 2020.
You can reach Elli on 02 6188 4555 or Elliott@morethanmortgages.com.au.
Business and Web Coordinator | CEO
Gina is our Business and Web Coordinator. Gina is responsible for creating, updating and publishing content on the MTM website, preparing and publishing the monthly newsletter and managing the MTM social channels.
She also deals with lenders on a daily basis and provides financial and administrative support to both De and Tash, which is why she has been dubbed MTM’s CEO (Chief Everything Officer!).
Gina has been with MTM from it’s inception, creating the website (including this page!) and is De’s favourite employee (maybe because she’s De’s mum!).
When Gina isn’t providing support to the MTM team, you can find her trekking around the Himalayas and helping to rebuild schools in remote villages in Nepal with the Reach for Nepal Foundation (where she volunteers as their Lead in Events Management). Any other down-time is spent getting cuddles from her other favourite child, Alfie (her little SHIT-zu/Maltese terrier).
You can reach Gina on 02 6188 4555 or email@example.com.
