Who is eLINK Finance

From Humble Beginnings

eLINK Finance was created with the soul intention of supporting borrowers with the right tools, knowledge and education to get their loans approved by lenders.

The result is a mortgage brokerage tailored to supporting the borrower to achieving their financial goals.

As Australia’s leading mortgage brokerage for 2018, eLINK Finance provides educational materials and tools to ensure borrowers win in the game of finance and especially enjoy packaging up finance solutions that enable investors to build property portfolios for an earlier retirement.

In conjunction with this, eLINK Finance have built a platform to make the loan process easier for the borrower and transparent. Gone are the days of flicking over a payslip and getting a low doc or no doc loan. And gone are the days of interest only loans whereby the strategy is to never pay down the debt.

Just like you hire a personal trainer to help you with your workouts, eLINK Finance is your finance coach in helping you to achieve your financial goals… and sooner.

Experience where it counts!

For me, a positive attitude and hard work have always been key mantras. As a BBA graduate with a Major in Finance, calculation and numbers have always been my area of interest.

I always present myself as an ambitious and confident individual, who strives to achieve the highest standard possible at any given task that I am asked to complete. I pride myself on a high standard of work in all the tasks that I partake in, and a great attention to detail.

Away from my role at e-Link Finance, I am a fun-loving and outgoing person, who enjoys dancing, travelling, listening to music, and watching movies with my friends.

Alone We Can Do So Little; Together We Can Do So Much

As a Financial Controller at eLINK Finance I get to witness miracles happen each day.

Being a property investor myself, acquiring 5 investment properties in 5 years I could not ask for a better place to work at. I get to see everyday Aussies building their dreams and overcoming their financial roadblocks. It is absolutely amazing to see the eLINK Finance team help people day in, day out achieve their goals.

Life has always been beautiful for me and I tend to enjoy every part of it. Nothing gives me more pleasure that watching my 2 beautiful boys growing up into their dream lives. I am very family oriented and a people’s person.

I also get so much satisfaction from doing social service and am really passionate about helping other people and making the world an even better more beautiful place to live in. My dream, adopt a village and eliminate poverty.
