Carol King
Mortgage Broker

I love the Sunshine Coast and living in the most beautiful area of Australia. It is my job to help you secure your first home, investment property or just get the best deal on your home loan. For me it is about offering you choice and real alternatives with your lending and not just a fixed or variable rate. I know because I have worked for the big banks and I left to pursue real choice in lending for customers and deliver on customer service expectations. I did take with me over 10 years' experience in the finance industry I can help you find the best solution for you and your family. Everyone is unique in the way they like to do their banking to what they want to achieve in life, so I can tailor your home loan and match it to your goals and help you reach them faster. This is not rocket science but just listening to your needs and values and matching them with what you want to do. I am passionate about helping our clients obtain the great Aussie dream of owning their own home. But I have the experience and knowledge to recognise how important it is to get the product right, simplify the process and make it a great experience. I believe this can be done by demonstrating commitment to excellence and first class customer service.

Nicola Cranswick
Mortgage Broker

I'm Nicola a Broker here at Loanmarket Buderim working alongside Carol and the team. I just wanted to tell you a little about why I became a Broker. I have been in the finance industry for over 32 years across Australia and New Zealand in a variety of lending roles from Residential to Commercial. Over these years I have been lucky enough to meet some fantastic people and have felt very privileged that they put their trust in me to help them achieve their financial goals. Customer service has always been the backbone of how I conduct myself, not just by providing good customer service but by going above and beyond what is expected. Having the ability to work with numerous lenders means no matter what your situation I will always work in your best interest and find the right deal for your personal situation. This is why I love what I do! Being a broker means I am not restricted by one financial institution's policies and rules, which can be very limiting and was one of the reasons I made the decision to leave the Bank. When Carol offered me the opportunity to be a part of a multi-award-winning, family-owned company here at Loanmarket Buderim, I jumped at the chance to work alongside her. This exciting opportunity was a way for me to provide outstanding customer service every single day and continue to learn and grow from a market leading Broker! Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you can make, whether you are a first homeowner, property investor, or you are looking to save some money with refinancing, I am here to help you work your way through the process. Here at Loanmarket Buderim, we have access to over 60 lenders. This means we can work with you to ensure you have the most competitive interest rate and the right loan structure for your personal situation. Loanmarket Buderim is committed to building an ongoing relationship with you, we don't just get you into your home and disappear, we stay and work with you for the life of your loan, through regular catch-ups and loan reviews to ensure we keep pace with your life changes. If you would like to see how I could help you, give me a call today!

Alyson Watson

I take a personal approach to lending, I'll keep you up to date throughout the whole process. Hi, I'm Aly, Mum of 3 children and Nanna to 1 new grandchild! My family is very important to me, so when I pick up a loan file I like to get a real feel for the client's situation, taking a holistic view of the file and family. I have been in Finance for over 15 years, mostly branch-based. The last 10 years I have been with one of the major banks as a Home Lending Specialist/Branch Manager/Relationship Manager, but felt I needed more. I love to cook and spend time with my family, I love to get away with the family to go camping and mountain bike riding. I have a great passion for customer service and helping customers' achieve their dreams of owning their own home. I love to help them save money and to make things simple and easy for them. I love how my boss constantly believes in me. She pushed me to endeavour on projects that I thought were way beyond my abilities for both my age and knowledge, and I am so grateful for her insistence. I’d be in a rut otherwise.

Gayle Harris

Say goodbye to complicated lending, I'll take the time to understand you and your situation. Hi, I'm Gayle. I enjoy helping our clients into their dream home and making the process as simple as possible. I like the flexibility of my role, as a mother of two young men having a good quality work-life balance helps me bring my A-game everyday to work. When a client's file is handed over I will go above and beyond what's expected of me to deliver the best outcome I can. I love learning as much as I can and being pushed to achieve more! I love feeling a sense of accomplishment when I am up against a deadline and we only have one shot to get it right, and it turns out better than we could have imagined and having a boss that appreciates the work I do and always thanks me for the hard work at the end of the day.

I have been in the finance industry since 2008 and involved in all aspects from consumer finance, marketing, business development, commercial finance and retail banking. Moving into a lending role was a natural progression for me and one I have jumped into wholeheartedly. Helping clients on their home loan journey is a passion of mine and it gives me great satisfaction to know I have made a small impact in someone's big life event. Customer service is my speciality and I'm looking forward to helping all of our clients achieve their dreams and goals. I love the team I have joined. There is a great sense of comradery here, we get into our work and each share the same passion for helping clients and have a bit of fun while doing it. The support from my boss and the team is wonderful, it's the kind of workplace you just want to be a part of!
