"Dedicated and personalised advice specifically for you to ensure you reach the property ownership goals you have set."
Mark Thompson has enjoyed a successful career in the banking industry, spanning close to 30 years. Working for three main finance institutions, his previous roles include mobile mortgage manager and senior commercial manager.
Mark’s experience in lending, management, credit assessment, and mortgage broking in the banking industry allows him to call upon his knowledge and assist clients, no matter how challenging the funding application.
“I like to listen, consider the borrower’s current situation and where they would like to get to. From there I can formulate a solution to ensure they are able to reach the goals they set themselves in the short and medium term, and to put in place a plan to help them towards their longer term goals.”
Clients working with Mark will have his full and undivided attention, and know that he will work hard to help them realise their dreams of financing a property. He was previously awarded ASB’s Top Commercial Manager in 2014 and 2015.
“With me there is never a no. Sometimes it might just be not right now followed up with a number of objectives to accomplish in order for a finance decline to turn into an approval.”
Based in Christchurch, Mark will be providing financial advice for all types of prospective borrowers. From first home buyers to experienced property investors including commercial property, and business related finance.
