A 20 year veteran of the banking and finance industry, Alan loves working with mortgage brokers who are motivated to help Australians achieve their dreams of homeownership.
In his own words, “There is nothing better than seeing the smile on a brokers’ face when they have helped a first home buyer in their new home or assisted a client with finance for their dream property when their own lender has declined them.”

Alan specialises in:
