Dreaming of a career as a pro-AFL player growing up, we’re extremely thankful Daniel makes such a great mortgage professional. Because without his commitment over the last 14 years to provide MMO clients with the best possible service, our business wouldn’t be half of what it is today. Daniel’s clients know what a difference he’s made to their lives too – as you can see from their comments below.
Whilst his laid back style would suggest otherwise, Daniel’s got an eye for detail and is a stickler for crossing the i’s and dotting the t’s. #thissentencedriveshimcrazy
Whilst it’s not that impressive for him to know the rate discount he’s negotiated for you, or how much money you’ll save by implementing his strategies, Daniel’s also been known to recall the address of a client’s fourth investment property.. and their dog’s name.
Daniel’s ability to focus on the little details to deliver a ‘big picture’ solution is what makes him so great at his job.
When one of your work colleagues (who’s not yet a MMO client), complains to you about all the things that went wrong with their latest property purchase, more often than not, it’s because someone didn’t pay enough attention to the little things. When Daniel looks after you and your loans, EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL is taken care of – it’s why you want his help.
In 2015, The Adviser Magazine recognized Daniel as of Australia’s, “Top 30 Brokers Under 30.” (If he was “under 30” for longer, we’re sure he’d have made the list again!) And more recently in 2017, Choice was awarded Daniel the title of ‘Platinum Achiever,’ revealing him as a top 5% performing mortgage professional for our aggregator.
