Emma Johnston > Mortgage Broker

"I am a Financial Adviser and have been in the financial services industry for the past 22 years; including being a mobile mortgage manager for over 15 years, with two major NZ banks.

My personal experiences have given me valuable insight into different lending scenarios from a client’s perspective.  I own my own home and have built before and have also had rental properties.  Many of these scenarios can seem overwhelming; however, I enjoy making the lending journey an easy and stress-free experience for my clients.

I enjoy spending time with my family and getting out and about on the weekends to walk our much-loved dog.  I have two young children, they’re into sports and activities, so I love to support and cheer them on from the side-lines."
