About Robbie

I have been involved within the Financial Services Industry since 1978. Leaving school, I commenced employment with the ANZ Bank before embarking on a successful mortgage and insurance advisory career in 1997.

Being an adviser opened up so many more opportunities to find the right solution to fit a particular situation.

After 40 years I still get that buzz of helping people achieve those short, medium and long term goals. There is nothing better than helping young people achieve their dream of home ownership. Our business is not about product. It is about understanding the goals and dreams of our client and working together to bring these to reality.

My Three Golden Rules

  1. To achieve the best possible client outcome.
  2. To keep it simple.
  3. To do what I say I'll do.

Neither Lifetime nor I have been subject to a reliability event. A reliability event is something that might influence you in deciding whether to seek advice from either myself or Lifetime. As an example, this would be a serious event such as legal proceedings against me, or bankruptcy in the last four years.
