“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” ~ Phil Jackson
Lady Boss | Principal Mortgage Broker
Deanna is the Director and Primary Mortgage Broker here at More Than Mortgages (MTM). Currently ranked no.1 female broker in the ACT and no.49 nationwide (Mortgage Professional Australia Top 100 2019), Deanna (De) started in the industry almost a decade ago and has organised over half a billion dollars worth of home loans. For the past 3 years De has been in the Top 50 in the country and 2 years prior, in the Top 100 (MPA). 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” at the BX xCellence awards in Sydney.
De’s drive to consistently meet and exceed her own and her clients 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 up Mt. Taylor, riding her motorbike, catching up on some salsa (dancing that is, not the dip!), fishing, scuba-diving, travelling or supporting her partner Andy in his love of AFL (Go The Cats!!).
Deanna is a credit representative (CR 504972) of BLSSA Pty Ltd ACN 117 651 760 (Australian Credit Licence 391237).
You can reach De on 0448 000 976 or at email@example.com.
The BOM | Business Operations Manager
Natasha (Tash) is The BOM (Business Operations Manager)! With over 6 years in the industry working alongside De, 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 broker in her own right and is looking after 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. Plans are in the works for her to be a part owner of the business – watch this space!
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 BLSSA Pty Ltd ACN 117 651 760 (Australian Credit Licence 391237).
You can reach Tash on 0455 551 556 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 BLSSA Pty Ltd ACN 117 651 760 (Australian Credit Licence 391237).
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 email@example.com.
Client Service Magician
Elliott (Elli) joined MTM in early 2019 and with her bubbly personality and ability to crack herself up with her own jokes, is the perfect addition to the MTM team. With her strong work ethic and customer service focus, Elli definitely lives up to the job title of “Client Service Magician” (so our clients tell us!).
Elli’s main role is to support De and Tash with applications once they’re lodged, which means she is dealing directly with lenders, solicitors, real estate agents and of course, MTM’s clients, on a daily basis. She also manages De’s diary and is the first point of contact for MTM clients. She has quickly become an important cog in the MTM machine!
Although only 23, Elli’s 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
