Meet our team
Mortgage Broker | Business Owner
Dane has been a mortgage broker for the last 8 years, and has a further 7 years experience in the banking industry. Dane was schooled in Maffra and has been living & working in Sale and the Latrobe Valley area for the last 15 years. He understands first-hand the specific needs of the regional borrower. That's why he's passionate about the value and panel of lenders he can offer at Mortgage Choice in Sale!
"My wife and I have both grown up in the local area, and live here with our 3 young children, so we understand the ins and outs of the local market, and regional finance. We're passionate about Mortgage Choice and the good quality lenders we have available on our panel - lenders that people in Sale and the surrounding areas may not have access to otherwise."
We understand the importance of being part of the local community - as a family and a business. That's why I'm a member of the Committee for Wellington and the Sale Business and Tourism Association as well as the major sponsor and secretary for the Stradbroke Cricket Club (always looking for new players if you know how to swing a stick...).

Client Care Manager | Business Owner
As Client Care Manager, Bridie's role is to ensure the service all of the customers of Mortgage Choice in Sale receive the same outstanding customer service. We pride ourselves on making the process as simple and easy as possible - and Bridie is a huge part of that! Her experience in the finance and insurance industry means she understand the challenges that customers face - and how to overcome them.
"Having purchased propery before myself, I remember feeling a bit overwhelmed at everything that was required. That's a big reason why we place customer care and service as a central part of our business! We complete all the paperwork and follow up with the banks, so the process is less overwhelming for our customers. It's my job to support our clients through the buying/ refinance process to ensure a smooth transition."
Dane and I have 3 beautiful children together which also keeps me busy! We both love our local community and are heavily involved wherever we can be. We love the fact that our shopfront is right in the heart of Sale - meaning we are more connected to the community. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, horse riding and water skiing.

Kate recently joined the Mortgage Choice in Sale team after working as a Human Resources coordinator in Canada. With a tertiary qualification in Business, Kate looks after the administration side of things, ensuring your loan progresses smoothly from application right through to settlement and beyond.
"It's important to me that our customers feel like our team have everything in hand when it comes to their home loan. After all, that's what we're here for! I make sure that the lender is moving your loan to settlement as smoothly as possible and have everything they need to get it there quickly."
Financial Adviser | Financial Planning
Having worked in the Financial Planning industry since 2000, David brings a wealth of experience to the team and our clients. He works with people who want to make the most of their income, get their insurance up-to-date, build wealth both inside and outside of superannuation and have a solid retirement income.
"There's not many jobs out there in which you get to sit down with a client and map out the financial goals they want to achieve throughout their life - and then put together a plan to help them hit those goals. It's a pretty amazing feeling watching a client become less reliant on their paycheck, or live out their dreams in retirement."
