Some mortgage brokers like to complicate matters. We don’t. At Zest, our mission is to ensure moving into your new home, refinancing, renovating or investing is something you love.
It’s that easy.
Having consulted in two of Australia’s largest banks, Mel Wright (Zest’s founder) grew tired of seeing unhappy, frustrated clients. Mortgages aren’t that difficult, you just need people who care.
As a mother of two boys and business owner, Mel understands that life today is busy. That's why Mel's mission is to help people get the financing they need, without the stress. In her downtime, you'll often find Mel creating educational material for her clients, with a glass of Barossa Valley's finest of course.
Amanda’s primary role is to support Mel with her workload. With 14 years in finance, including extensive CBA experience in pre settlement verification with brokers, lenders and solicitors, Amanda is an integral member of the Zest team. Amanda has a Cert III in Business and is completing her Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Brokering.
With 23 years of banking expertise and in-depth broker CRM experience, Joanna is passionate about helping Zest's clients get the right loan for their needs and busy lifestyle. Speaking of busy, Joanna is the mother of two teenage girls who are looking to follow their mum's finance footsteps.
