I want to create financial lightbulb moments that help you achieve your financial goals. My first step, always, is to get to know YOU – your vision, what you stand for and your goals. I’ll then research over 60 lenders to find the right loan deal for YOU, discuss how to protect yourself and then continue to review your position year-on-year. I specialise in home loans, investments loans, car loans, equipment finance and business, commercial and development loans. I believe in the value of true long-term relationships through honest conversations and always acting in your best interests. Outside of work I try to spend quality time with my four beautiful children and wife - you'll see us at the beach, numerous sporting grounds, out for family dinners or kicking the ball out the back. I'm still football (soccer) mad and still manage to play although something tells me that I'm not as fast as I think I am.

As a young professional, I ventured into the broking industry in 2007, seeking to explore new opportunities after a stint in accounting. Quickly realising that mortgage broking was my calling, I found immense satisfaction in helping others achieve their financial goals. With my strong connection to my South American roots and experience as a child of immigrant parents, one of my goals is to become a pillar of the Spanish community, using my skills and Spanish-speaking abilities to educate and guide others like me towards financial success. Throughout my career in broking, I have earned numerous recognitions and accolades, which have given me the confidence to help my clients ignite their financial potential and experience a lightbulb moment they might not have known was possible. Family is my top priority, and I always strive to put them first. I love spending time with my loved ones, including my two mini Dachshunds, Astro and Nova. In my free time, I enjoy playing football, tennis, and listening to my Spanish music playlists at home. Travelling is another passion of mine as it has given me diverse perspectives on life.

I am a St George / Ramsgate local and love living and working in our community. I started in the finance industry in 1989 as a branch teller, and worked my way up to a senior lending and legal manager with one of the major banking corporations. Since then I've held multiple positions in relationship management, credit management, financial planning and have been a finance broker for over 10 years. Outside of work, in amongst taking care of my elderly father, I enjoy physical activities like going to the gym three to four times a week.

I started in the finance industry back in March 2021 when an opportunity was identified in a menteeship program to become a mortgage broker. It was great to learn the ropes under experienced brokers, but unfortunately the low volume of clients had me looking for alternative options. My mentor at the time introduced me to Onur and Nelson. After our initial conversation and meet up, I recognised the potential of where Build Invest Grow was going and I could not pass up this chance to work alongside such a professional broker like Onur. My daily role in the business is to assist the clients reach a formal/unconditional approval stage for their loan after their needs and requirements have been recognised by the broker. This involves regularly communicating with our customers, gathering supporting documents, liaising with potential lenders and compiling the loan application. It brings me great joy to hear the excitement of clients when I call them at formal approval, it makes the journey very worthwhile. Outside of work I like to travel and explore new places or take on new home improvement challenges.

With 8+ years experience in the mortgage industry, 3 of which as a Senior Broker Service Specialist I am here to help you with your loan needs. I've been providing mortgage guidance and customer service for our clients with a particular focus on post-settlement for the past 3 years. I take pride in delivering an excellent service, guiding customers through every step of their mortgage settling process. I'm committed to helping them succeed from the settlement and giving them support on post settlement process. Personally, I love to explore new places. I enjoy travelling and going on amazing hikes with my friends. I am also always up for a challenge and looking to take on more extreme activities in the future. Life is an adventure, and I am all about embracing it! I am always looking to experience something new and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Joie Leodivico

I have been working in customer service for the past ten years. Whilst I haven't had the most conventional career as I've come from a Professional School Teacher to an Account Specialist Trainer and now a Senior Broker Service Specialist, my experience is a testament to how I love and enjoy helping others. I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue a career in the financial industry because I know I am helping so many people. In the team, I am responsible for assisting in completing loan applications, gathering documents needed for the application, preparing loan documents and other relevant paperwork, and processing loan requests. Overall, my role can help make the loan process easier and more efficient for the team, clients and lenders. Besides work, I am a daring traveller who loves to discover new places and push the boundaries of what I consider to be normal.
