Catriona Hanneman – Personal Mortgage Adviser

Smartline Personal Mortgage Adviser Catriona Hanneman brings her customers a wealth of experience and knowledge. She has been a mortgage broker since 2008, prior to this she ran her own small businesses.

“I’ve gained so much experience over the years and have a first-hand understanding of some of the challenges my customers may be facing, particularly in terms of being self-employed and running a business,” she says.

With her warm and friendly personality, Catriona genuinely cares about her customers’ financial wellbeing and is dedicated to delivering an efficient and personalised service. “I know that obtaining finance can be complicated and stressful, and my aim is to make it as simple as possible for my clients,” she says.

“I’m proactive, deliver on promises, and keep my customers informed throughout the whole process. I also make a point of taking on only a limited amount of customers at once so I’ve got time to give everyone the attention and focus they require.”

She has a proven track record in exceeding her clients’ expectations, and attracts many new clients through referrals from current and past happy customers. “It’s so rewarding for me when clients are over-the-moon with what I can achieve for them,” Catriona says.

She refers to an example where she recently worked with a journalist, a pretty tough customer who described himself as ‘not easily impressed’ and ‘very sceptical’. Catriona assisted this client with her usual professionalism and attention to detail, and he provided a glowing review of her service and expertise, stating:

‘I was blown away by her professionalism, skills and business/personal manner … Catriona had a battle to win me over. She not only won me over, I am in awe at the assistance she provided and the insights she has to provide the best outcomes for my specific requirements. I have no hesitation recommending her service … Brilliant, well done, outstanding, the best … I’m sold.’

“I was incredibly proud to have been able to overcome this client’s doubts and surpass his expectations. This is what I strive to do for every person or family that I work with,” she says.

Catriona is familiar with the range of lending products and structures available on the market and uses this knowledge to find solutions that will suit each client’s individual circumstances and objectives.

“Whether you’re purchasing or building a home or investment property, restructuring or consolidating your debts, I look at the big picture to find the loan that will achieve your objectives in a timely and stress-free manner,” she says. “I always have my clients’ best interests at heart and excel at looking out of the box to overcome tricky situations.”
