“I first met Peta Siebert when she was appointed as my Regional Manager with Aussie Home Loans. At that time I had been a broker for around 2 ½ years. It wasn’t until Peta started working with me that I realised that I had been on my own with virtually no mentoring previously. Peta left Aussie in June 2013 and after approximately 9 months, having recognised how important Peta was to me being successful, I resigned from Aussie and joined her at Barry Plant Financial Services. When she was head hunted by Jellis Craig I was the first broker to join her. This quickly became 5 brokers as we all recognise her abilities and the positive input she has on our own businesses.Peta is unique and in my opinion one of a kind. She never micro manages but is across all my deals and is ready to step in when being a broker doesn’t achieve action with lenders. She understands borrowing, is helpful when a deal is complicated and offers suggestions whether it be lenders, products or just to talk through options. She has a 2 hour 1 on 1 with her brokers each month where she dedicates this time to us personally. During these sessions as well as talking through individual deals,she also demonstrates her support around life coaching.To me being a leader or manager is more than assisting with the day to day territory, it is taking a personal interest in your team members and business partners along with their welfare. Peta does this in spades.I would have no hesitation in recommending anybody wishing to become a broker to apply with Peta as I know they will learn the industry thoroughly and also will be looked after extremely well.”
Beth – Senior Mortgage Broker
"In her capacity as a management leader of a group of self employed mortgage brokers within which I'm a member, I find that the effort and dedication which Peta has exhibited over the years, has eclipsed that of the previous managers combined. As a consequence of her accumulated knowledge, experiences and business acumen, I have no hesitation in making Peta my first point of contact for advice and guidance when seeking assistance in relation to the operation of my own business. Communication is without fault and it is evident that customer care/service us a high priority. Overall, it is very rare to find a person with such attributes."
