I remember very clearly the emotions I felt when I purchased my first home. I was so excited, yet terrified at the same time. It was a challenge trying to navigate my way through the purchasing process with real estate agents, lawyers and banks. I wished that I had someone to help me through the journey, and this is what I now do as a mortgage adviser with Nest Home Loans.

All of my previous jobs have involved working with people which I really enjoy. I have worked as a police officer, as an immigration officer (helping people through the process of obtaining New Zealand residency) and as a personal banker processing mortgages in a bank.

I am very much a details person. I pride myself on my ability to help people understand complex processes, how legislation or rules apply to their circumstances and what pathways may be available for them.

I enjoy talking with people, getting to know their stories and travelling with them, on their journeys, to reach their goals. When I am not at work I like spending time with my husband and our two children Ben aged 9 and Hayley aged 7. I also enjoy going to the gym, photography and sewing.

I look forward to working with you!

  • We have had the most exciting, anxiety provoking but overall amazing experiencing working with Tineke and the team at Nest Home Loans. We would like to acknowledge T for the incredible service you provided. Your hardworking attitude, kind nature, great communication skills, on-going support and reassurances given to us (during those anxiety provoking periods when waiting for feedback from lenders) is to be highly commended. We thank you and highly recommend you to other first home buyers!

  • Nest home loans were able to provide us with a mortgage where I don't believe we would have been able to achieve it without their expertise. Highly competent and very honest with such a diligent attitude would very highly recommend to all families.
