Melinda Whelan Personal Mortgage Adviser

Building on her more than 15 years in banking and finance, Melinda Whelan was the first Smartline Adviser in the Northern Territory. Based in Katherine, she has mobile coverage of Darwin and other areas of the Northern Territory.

More than anything, Mel most enjoys the relationships she gets to develop with clients – whether they are seeking a loan for their own home, a property investment or for their small business. “I love the fact that I am a part of some of the most significant decisions a person will make – buying a home,” she says. “I have a can-do attitude and willingness to go the extra mile for every client.”

Honesty, professionalism and integrity are other qualities Mel holds in high regard. She enjoys offering clients greater choice in their lending advice, with access to up to 25 ranges of loan products.

“As a Smartline personal mortgage adviser, I give my clients a real choice – offering them a range of options for their lending requirements.”

Her lending and mortgage experience began more than 15 years ago and includes senior roles in home loan and small business lending. She has a strong network of quality contacts throughout the NT, including real estate agents, builders and solicitors who can assist her clients.

Mel has a strong community focus and is proud of the fact that $10 from every loan she writes goes towards Smartline’s extensive charity work. Throughout her career she has been actively involved in charitable activity in the workplace, including a fundraiser for the Katherine Hospital.

She can service clients in Katherine, Darwin, and other towns in the NT.
