“Matt has come straight out of the credit team at Macquarie Bank and has taken the courageous leap straight into opening his own broking business … producing results that brokers usually see after many years of broking by settling over $58m in loans this past 12 months as a standalone broker. This is due to Matt’s hard work, tenacity and the great relationships he has built with his lenders. His expertise in all the fields is what sets him apart. ... Matt is also very humble and is always giving back to the industry so early on in his career by continually offering to help other Connective brokers by sharing his knowledge and insights into his success.”
