Owner | Mortgage Broker
As owner of Mortgage Choice Hoppers Crossing as well as a home owner & investor, Pat understands the pressures that can come with buying property and owning a small business. After years in the food industry, he has spent the last 13 years in the finance industry, helping people through the home loan process.
"I experienced the service of Mortgage Choice while I was still working in the food industry. I loved the service and the transparency of the paid the same philosophy so much that I decided on a career change - and haven't looked back. I am so passionate about our team's customer service & ensuring our finance knowledge is up-to-date. We pride ourselves on being our customer's very own home loan team."
Working at Mortgage Choice Hoppers Crossing since 2006, Tabitha is well versed in what is takes to get a customer's home loan application across the line. She knows how important it is to get customer's into the right product from the start of their loan, so works hard to make sure she's updated on any lender changes & new low rates.
"Lenders will change their requirements all the time, and often have special rates available. A special rate could save a customer money while changing requirements could mean the lender is no longer suitable for the customer. So I can do my very best for a customer, I make sure that keep up to date and get customers into the right loan from the very beginning - because the wrong loan costs money!"
Loan Packaging Manager
Betty is the customer favourite on our team! Betty packages up & presents your loan to the chosen lender, and will work hard at following up with the banks to keep it moving. She contacts our customers regularly to make sure they know exactly where we're at with the loan - keeping everyone updated & informed.
"There's a bit of an art to putting together a loan application in the right way & so the lender will view it favourably. And no two loans are alike! So it's really rewarding when I can tell a customer that their loan has been approved. I love seeing the work I put in help customers purchase their first home or their dream home."
Owner | Financial Planning

"I love investing in property and the freedom it can bring to finance. Putting your money to work now, whether you earn a little or a lot, makes a huge difference to how you live later on and if you can afford to do what you want. All Australians should have access to easy to understand financial advice to help them get there."

Charmaine La Rocca
Financial planning administrator
There's a lot of administration & organising that goes into building & rolling out a financial plan. We needed someone super organised & on the ball - and that's definitely Charmaine. She's makes sure everything that has been planning by our clients & Matthew is put in place, including following up with any suppliers & insurers - so you don't have to!
"I really believe in financial planning, but I know how much work is involved in putting an effective financial plan in place. For our clients - that's where I come in. As soon as a plan is decided on, I kick into action to organise everything and chase suppliers to get it happening quickly. I love knowing our clients can rest easy - knowing we've got it all in hand."
Customer service coordinator
Melissa is a integral part of the team at Mortgage Choice Hoppers Crossing. She manages our customer service process, reminding customers when it's time to review their home loan & keeping in contact with you long after your loan has settled.
"The home loan process doesn't finish at settlement. Because home loans often last many years, it's important to our team that we make sure that the home loan / busienss loan is still right for the customer. It's also important to make sure we're still communicating with the customer and fixing any issues that might come up."
Tanya is the friendly smile you'll see at reception when you come through the door! She's there to coordinate the team to make sure that you're getting the help you need with your home loan or financial planning.
"Our customers love our full range of services, and because we have a big team it's good to have someone to coorindate it all! I work with both mortgage broking & financial planning sides of the business to make sure customers are getting the high level of customer service they expect from us."
