Mortgage Broker for West Auckland and North Shore

Raymond is a welcome addition to our brokerage team to assist with strong commercial, first home buyers, new builds, and rental growth in the Hobsonville, Whenuapai, Kumeu and surrounding areas.

Raymond started his Banking career in 1981 in South Africa and was a Home Loan & Relationship Manager at ABSA Bank. He completed his Bachelor of Commerce degree through UNISA in 1992, and obtained various other financial qualifications in Financial Management. Over the last 15 years Raymond specialised in mortgage lending and has worked at Sovereign Home Loans, and BNZ, and has spent the last 10 years as Business Banking Manager at ANZ looking after owner-occupied and rental home loans and commercial property funding.
In the role of Business Banking Manager Raymond’s primary focus was dealing with existing and new client’s home loan applications and commercial loans. He brings with him a wealth of experience in lending and rental portfolio management.

Raymond is a Registered Financial Adviser focusing in West Auckland and North Shore, and is available by phone or email almost 24/7 to discuss your mortgage requirements, at your home, your office, First Rate Mortgages office in Orewa, or to meet for a coffee at the local cafe. He can assist with refinancing, consolidation of short term debt, first home buyers, rental properties, whether you may have low deposit or poor credit history. One aspect of the new role with First Rate Mortgages that Raymond is excited about, is being able to help clients when they do not tick all the traditional bank boxes.

Raymond’s hobbies and interests include fishing and rugby, and a favourite pastime is spending quality time with his family and grandchildren.

“Raymond was wonderful from start to finish with what initially I thought could be very difficult due to circumstances. I can not thank him enough for all his help and recommend him very highly! When we buy again, we will be asking Raymond to assist us again.”
