Matthew has blended 14 years of mortgage experience, as well as over 32 years experience in sales, sales management, general management and exemplary customer service and created a service offering that is Vivid Financial Services. This experience has enabled Matthew to adapt the principals of the sales process to the financial services platform resulting in a seamless and highly successful offering to Vivid Financial Services.
Matthew previously had his own mortgage brokerage business during which time he built relationships with some of NSW's major home builders including Jennings, Wincrest, Cosmopolitan Homes and Rawson Homes as well as some smaller boutique builders, working with first home buyers. Spending time in the builder's offices, offering mortgage advice and confirming borrowing capacities, Matthew proved to be a valuable asset to the builders sales staff when negotiating with their clients.
During the past 5 and a half years, Matthew has developed and honed his investment lending skills to include complex structures such as trusts and multiple entity lending structures as well as self-employed and commercial lending; he has also been heavily exposed to the SMSF lending space, this experience has proven invaluable to his clients and coupled with his extensive residential lending experience, helped Matthew develop into the quality broker he is today.
The creation of Vivid Financial Services is a major milestone in Matthew's development and he is keen to take this service offering to all facets of the mortgage, commercial and personal lending markets to assist more people in achieving their financial goals.
Matthew is also a certified and trusted mentor; he has 6 mentee brokers he works closely with to help them develop their broker skills and offering.
