“I have built a reputation on my tenacity to respond promptly and professionally and working tirelessly to secure the best financial packages for my clients, who often don’t fit into traditional lending options.

“Much of my time is spent dealing with credit policy teams, finding solutions to technical challenges.”

Helen said 80 per cent of new business generated is from existing client referrals.

“I have been cognisant of maintaining exceptional customer service in my busiest periods.

“As a team we are focused on communication, empathy, transparency and problem-solving and I believe this is what brings people back year-on-year.”
