Joanne Nugent - Mortgage Broker, Owner & Manager

Joanne Nugent

Owner, Manage & Mortgage Broker

I love my job; I love my clients; and there is nothing more rewarding than helping clients secure the finance for their new home, whatever their circumstances and whatever their requirements may be. 

Your home loan journey is my home loan journey - and I'll support you every step of the way! 

As a resident of beautiful Samford Valley, I am proud to be a Mortgage Choice Mortgage Broker, a Chartered Accountant and a Senior Associate of the Financial Services Institute of Australiasia. Through university and post graduate studies, I also hold a Bachelor of Business (Banking and Finance); a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment; a Certificate IV in Mortgage Broking, a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management; and a Queensland Real Estate Certificate.

The move to Mortgage Broking was the perfect decision to make as it combined my interest and experience in the banking and finance industry, along with my desire to own my own business, and develop strong professional working relationships with my clients, providing them with the care and support they deserve when making such important financial decisions.

My professional approach to mortgage broking is to make home loans simple - to save my clients both time and money in securing the finance for their new home while also educating them on the benefits of property investment and savvy home loan management.

While I work from my home office here in Samford, I am available to meet with clients at their home or workplace at a time that suits them. Making home loans easy is my goal!
