Mortgage Broker Support

Yvonne has joined us in our Orewa office bringing a wealth of life knowledge, having worked in the mortgage broking industry in the past, and prior to joining our team was working in private business and has been a property owner for many years.

In 2000 Yvonne started her journey in the world of mortgage broking, working in support roles to mortgage brokers writing up loans, managing databases, and customer relationships. Yvonne worked with Jet Express Mortgages and Think Financial Services on Whangaparaoa Peninsular, and in 2007/2008 when the GFC started to impact on the mortgage industry Yvonne decided it was time for a change.

Over the past 8 years Yvonne worked as an Office Manager for a well-known nationwide cleaning franchise company where she supported the franchisees plus dealt with new business enquiries which included government agencies, investors, developers, property managers, and real estate agents.

Yvonne has now completed the NZCFS Level 5 Classroom course: Residential Property Lending Strand (Mortgage Advisor) and will be completing the full Level 5 Certificate later in the year, and will be Kim Lyon’s cover when he is out of the office or on leave.
Yvonne lives with her husband Richard in Gulf Harbour. They are very hands-on grandparents to Cooper who also lives with them with his mother and father. Yvonne enjoys all sport, in particular netball and rugby, and has enjoyed coaching netball at intermediate level at schools on the Hibiscus Coast.

Yvonne has a wealth of business and finance knowledge, and her common-sense approach and professional attitude has fitted in very well with our existing team and clients.

“I had a great experience with Yvonne at First Rate Mortgages.
Yvonne managed to provide a responsive and highly professional service during a very busy and stressful time. Yvonne has excellent contacts in the industry and helped me arrange a very competitive and flexible deal. I highly recommend her.”
