With over 25 years’ experience in the banking industry, Glenn brings expertise, knowledge, and a passion for delivering positive outcomes to each of his Smartline customers.
‘My goal is to help my clients reach their financial aspirations,’ he says. ‘I provide exceptional service by always being available; providing well-informed, honest advice; and going above and beyond to meet my client’s needs.’
Glenn says that customers appreciate his reliability, experience and knowledge. ‘I work to the highest standards of professionalism and always put my clients’ best interests first. As a proactive communicator, I’m also dedicated to taking the stress out of the borrowing equation for my clients, getting results within great timeframes.’
Holding a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management, Glenn has a strong track record of success as a lending expert and in fostering and developing internal and external relationships at an interpersonal level. He has worked in a variety of roles at some of Australia’s leading banks, including Bank of Queensland, Suncorp and ME Bank, with a main focus on mortgage lending.
‘My extensive experience within the banking industry has given me the ability to understand the banking landscape, positive and negative, which enables me to have complete control over each client’s personal financial situation and their subsequent requests for assistance,’ he says.
Glenn specialises in assisting clients with home loans, investment loans, asset finance, and business loans. Before making any recommendations, he takes the time to build an understanding of each client’s current requirements and financial goals. ‘With this knowledge I can tailor the appropriate financial solutions that fit the desired outcome.’
Glenn is based on the southside of Brisbane, where he has lived since childhood and is now raising his own young family. ‘I have links to the local community through schools and sporting organisations and enjoy the lifestyle that Brisbane has to offer,’ he says.
While he is mobile across Greater Brisbane, Glenn’s professional networks also extend throughout Queensland, and he is happy to travel to meet a client anywhere.
