Mark Attard

When I bought FinancePath in 2008, I had three goals in mind.

1.To build a team of passionate professionals dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of their clients, family and friends.

2. To help raise the standard of lending and money management advice available to all Australian's

3. To educate and empower people to take control of their money

With more than 15-years experience in the finance and property industry, I am as passionate now as I was at the start to continue building our business and help our clients live their dreams.

"Mark has always gone above and beyond and has a clear understanding of our business and our financial plans for the future.  He always explains the options and gives his recommendations for the best way to move forward. We have always been given options that other services would not have offered.  The communication between our accountant, solicitor, lenders ourselves and Mark has always been smooth and with clear understanding on all sides.  This would not have been possible without FinancePath."

Chris Collard
 

After starting out as a business analyst at AXA in 1999, I built a career in a number of roles across the financial services industry.I joined Mark Attard at FinancePath in 2010 to build upon the solid foundation that had been set, and grow the business by broadening our network of trusted partners and manage the day to day operations of the business.

With a Bachelor of Business (economics and marketing), an Associate Diploma in Mortgage Broking and a Diploma in Financial Planning, I understand the intricacies of smart money management.

I was a client first and I practice what we preach and have seen first-hand, the value in the advice we provide. My job is to share this knowledge with our team and make sure they continue to ask the right questions to understand where you are at. Only by truly understanding what you want in life, can we deliver a solution that best suits you.

"Have never looked back.  Chris is fantastic at what he does. Very thorough and so helpful.  He gave us the best advice and we feel like we are in a better position now then we were years ago.  Process went smoothly.  Not having to run around ourselves.  All the hard work is done by FinancePath" Sophie Walker

My role at FinancePath is taking care of you once your loan has settled. This means ensuring you are familiar with the internet banking systems to manage the loan and putting in place the income and repayment structure we have recommended for you. Whether you have bought a new home or refinanced an existing debt my job is to make things easy for you to understand and be there for you for any enquiries or assistance you need to move forward.

"Rory was very helpful when we established the loan and was happy to sit down and go through everything with me." Catriona Corben

My professional development includes courses in people management, understanding the customer to drive sales and customer results, call centre management and customer engagement.

My top advice to FinancePath client's is to ask as many questions as possible. This will ensure your goals are met and you will be matched with the best financial strategy that suits your individual needs.

John Mayman

 

Having worked as a mortgage broker for more than seven years in regional Victoria, I moved to Melbourne April 2014 to join FinancePath.

Here, as a lending consultant, my success to date has been in really caring about what is important to you. I take the time to ask lots of questions (my love of a chat is legendary within the four walls of Financepath ) and more importantly really listen to where you are at.

I have a Diploma of Financial Service Mortgage Broking, and understand the ins and outs of smart money management. For me the key is to make sure you have a clear understanding of the big picture, while taking care of the small details.

"John, was very helpful and informative, he took the time to listen to our questions and get answers for us." Ashley Tan

"I just wanted to let you know what an amazing gem you have in John! I think I've been a unique client in more than a few ways, and not exactly straight forward.Not only was John my mortgage boy (thought I'd choose that word since I know how much he loves being referred to the young one), he was a pseudo friend, a listening ear and counsellor.  I think I kept him on his toes. Between my expedited purchase, my changing life circumstances and my ever wonderful conveyancer, I never once felt like a frustrating client. John always was more than a pleasure to work with, I think we had some good laughs along the way too. Thank you for trusting him with me." Amanda Nicholson

I love getting on the whiteboard and mapping out a client's situation, helping them understand what is possible.

My lending advice is to set a goal, and make it a big one. I am here to support you with the numbers and help you understand your worst case scenario, so you can make better decisions.
