NZMBA Accredited Auckland Mortgage Broker and Director Christine Lockie
20 years advocating for borrowers throughout New Zealand.
With more than 20-years experience in the financial services industry, Auckland based Christine Lockie's expertise in achieving finance approvals for clients is based on an understanding of what makes the finance industry tick, her knowledge of individual lender requirements and the close contacts within her extensive network of lenders.
Before specialising in mortgages, Christine worked for an Auckland merchant investment bank where she was involved in mergers and acquisitions, management buy-outs and public investment through prospectus – experience which paved the way for her to move into mortgages.
With a passion for mortgages and lending in the way some people love cars or shoes, Christine thrives on the challenge of negotiating with lending institutions to achieve the best results for her clients.
Whether people are looking for funding for commercial or residential properties; are salaried, wage earners or self-employed; have previously had credit difficulties or mortgage arrears; or require 100 percent or development funding, matching them with the right lender is what drives Christine.
Many of her clients come to seek advice, and because of her extensive finance industry experience she is an excellent source of relevant and up-to-date information on the various finance products available.
Even the industry recognises Christine's expertise. She received the New Zealand Mortgage Brokers Association award for Mortgage Broker of the Year – Northern Region in 2008 and 2006, and obtained a finalist status for the award on several other occasions. She was also awarded the NZMF Broker of the Year in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. She then completed the company buy-back from New Zealand Finance in 2007.
Much of Christine's business comes from referrals. This is important as people generally refer their business contacts to people they know and trust. People trust Christine due to the dedication and professionalism she demonstrates across her large portfolio. Christine is an award winning and accredited member of the New Zealand Mortgage Brokers Association (Professional Advisers Association), the North Shore City Chapter of BNI and Auckland Chamber of Commerce.
