Jon's career began in 1992 working in International Finance & Trade for Westpac before moving across to ANZ Bank where he worked in a number of roles culminating in a managerial posting.  Having seen the decline of relationship banking unfold during the 90's Jon was one of the 'early adopters' when the mortgage broking industry began.  Since building the foundations of Melbourne Mortgage Advice in 1999, Jon has helped thousands of people achieve their property dreams.

Ajit is one of the hardest working men we’ve ever seen. He’s an absolute machine dedicated to providing excellent service. Ajit makes sure that all the loan applications are entered, vetted, correct, submitted, followed up, documented, booked and settled. He is an entire engine room in his own right. 
Diligent, focused, sharp as a tack and a hell of a nice guy.....we’re lucky to have him! 

Georgia Gillingham - Administration Support

Georgia is another of our Admin Support professionals. She makes sure that all the loan applications are entered, vetted, correct, submitted, followed up, documented, booked and settled.
Her depth of knowledge and maturity far exceeds her years……. we suspect that she’s some sort of time traveller or something. 
Georgia’s style is a refreshing blend of old fashioned hard work, accountability and consistent excellence. She’s a rare find and an essential part of our team.
