Local experts

Style sat down with owners of Mortgage Choice Nundah, 
Matt and Hanna Cunliffe.

After returning from a lengthy trip abroad with the desire to add more feathers to his cap, Matt began working for Mortgage Choice with the aim to help everyday people realise their dream of home ownership whilst assisting people to create wealth through property and finance. Wife Hanna was quickly immersed in the industry shortly after meeting Matt, and soon became just as passionate for the business, staff and clients as he is.

What’s the most rewarding part of what you do?
We both enjoy seeing clients go from not owning a single property to being confident enough to purchase multiple due to the sound financial position they have been able to achieve through initial interactions.

Most people wouldn’t know?
Mortgage Choice is not just about mortgages. Providing a full suite of financial services, clients can rely on Mortgage Choice for help with commercial loans, personal loans, car and asset finance, development finance and any number of other solutions when borrowings are required.

What clients do you work with?
From first home buyers to very high-net-worth individuals, new startups to well-established businesses and anyone in between, our client base is made up of a vast range of people at different places and stages in their life. Interacting with a broad spectrum of people is what we enjoy most.
