VOTED NZ's Top 10 Mortgage Adviser 2017

In 2008 I started property trading, buying houses, renovating them and selling them to make a profit. I was property trading while still working full time in the police which was pretty full on. I really enjoyed the property industry and I had a mortgage adviser arranging my finance for my investments. I thought he had a great job and it made me wonder if I should try a career change and give mortgage advising a go.

I started my career as a mortgage adviser in 2012 part time mortgage advising while still in the police. My mortgage advising business grew very quickly to a point where I decided to resign from the police and I wound down my property trading.

A couple of years later I started Nest Home Loans with Richard Petersen, and never looked back! Richard and I spent countless hours on systematizing, programming, designing to make Nest the absolute leader in the industry.
In 2017, I received the prestigious award of being the number 6 broker in the country. Not a bad result with the high achieving brokers around me were seasoned veterans, and there I was….a 3 year rookie! If you were to ask “how could Jeff play ball with the big boys” I’d say it was due to the hard work Richy and I put into our unique Nest systems which guarantees the highest level of service, and that’s what our clients want.

Since then a number of top advisers have joined the Nest Whanau, and they too have been helping thousands of Kiwis into homes.

What gets me out of bed each day (other than the alarm clock), is hearing all the struggles some of our clients have been through, and when they come to Nest they finally get their dream home. I love reading the testimonials that my team gets on Google, Trade Me and Facebook. [I cant find the link to the google reiews, its not the one, that’s not the right link to display the google reviews)
