Dwayne Brittain

Dwayne Brittain

Owner | Mortgage Broker

Dwayne has had considerable experience in the mortgage and finance industry with over 33 years of banking experience spanning commercial lending, mortgages, agribusiness and consumer lending. Dwayne is passionate about making sure he is up-to-date with new low rates and home loans on the market, and is able to get his clients the best ones available.

"Having had a lot of experience on the bank side of the process, I love the fact that as a mortgage broker we get to offer choice - a panel of lenders with hundreds of home loans - because no one's the same and we all need different things financially. It allows us to find a loan for our clients that feels tailored to them."

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.
