Gordon MacVicar

Mortgage Broker

  • Gordon co-owns Mortgage Choice Peregian Beach with his wife Larissa
  • Gordon started his career in the mortgage industry in 2016
  • Born and raised Auckland, NZ, moved to Sydney in 2002 and made the sea change the Sunshine Coast in 2016

My career has been varied and diverse and this sets me up to help clients find the best finance solution for their needs. I started my life as an electrician before moving into sales and management for a multinational company and then being involved in a start-up lighting company. Having worked in both small and large businesses, I've witnessed first-hand how good finance can help businesses and individual's thrive. 

Being Self Employed myself, I have an understanding on how small businesses are run and what is involved. I know the challenges businesses can face when it comes to obtaining finance and the stress business owners can face on a weekly basis - which is why we are committed to giving you the right answer and solutions quickly.

A retired triathlon enthusiast and architecture admirer Check out my Instagram page, I am an outdoor lover originally from Auckland. 

When I'm not with the family or working I'm mostly out running 🏃‍♂️ the trails and pavement training for marathon events.
