Born and raised in a small beachside town in Sicily, Melina migrated to Perth with her family at the age of 14, not knowing a word of English. Completing her schooling and entering the workforce was a challenge, which many non-English-speaking migrants will relate to.
A job as a retail assistant in a city jewellery store helped her to fast-track her language skills and then, one fateful day, a work colleague invited her to visit a city health club and introduced her to Brian, the owner. Before long, she had forsaken jewellery for barbells and, after what seemed an interminable five years, they were married, and remained happily so 36 years later.
Melina started working in property management almost nine years ago after being introduced to a role through a family connection. Never having regarded herself as a “sales” type of person, she soon found that people responded well to her honesty, quickly came to trust her and happily referred their friends and family. Over the years she has been both a tenant and an owner, so she understands the concerns and anxieties that people have when dealing with property from these different perspectives. Her philosophy in business is to treat everyone with due respect, to never promise anything she can’t deliver and to care for every client’s interests as though they were her own.
Outside of business, her greatest passion is her family; her husband, her three adult children and her adorable grandson, Ethan. She also loves photography and enjoys taking lots of interesting photos whenever she is out and about, exploring the beauty of nature and gardening. She is looking forward to moving to Perth’s northern beaches and cultivating a courtyard garden in her new home.
Loraine believes that finding the right loan is all about communication - listening, asking the right questions and always considering the best finance options available to achieve your property goals. Her friendly, cheerful attitude makes it easy to discuss in confidence, your personal financial circumstances. It’s just another part of the conversation aimed at the ultimate objective – a big Yes from the right lender.
It helps to be a detailed, critical thinker, always looking for the best solution. Having worked with all levels of government, business and not-for-profits in accounting, finance, operations and management, Loraine knows the importance of making sure everyone is on the same page and working together towards an agreed outcome. Then it really comes down to building a case to support the application. Her attention to detail ensures all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed to make sure everything goes smoothly.
As well as being a qualified Finance and Mortgage Broker accredited with a wide variety of lenders, Loraine has a Bachelor of Business in Management and Marketing and an Honours Degree in Marketing from Curtin University (where she also taught in these areas for many years).
Loraine’s wide range of lending experience can help to:
• Finance your dream home
• Start and grow an investment property portfolio
• Save around $30,000 as a First Home Owner, explaining and applying for the grants and subsidies offered to those who qualify
• Refinancing your current property to get a better rate, more flexibility or access equity
• Purchasing a commercial property for investment or business
• Finance your business growth or purchase business assets
Loraine is an avid property fan and loves watching a range of TV shows showcasing property in Australia and around the world. Grand Designs and Selling Houses Australia are particular favourites! Loraine also loves checking out new eateries with her family and close friends and is delighted when she finds somewhere that serves a top-quality apple pie or cream puff. Her personal goal for the future is to find herself a good camera and learn how to use it!
Originally from England, Ron grew up in Essex on the outskirts of London. Working for a large national insurance company, Ron soon discovered a passion for customer service, particularly helping customers to solve their problems.
After 20 years growing and developing his administration and management skills, Ron made the big decision to immigrate to Australia, arriving in Perth on Anzac Day in 1987.
After a brief stint as a real estate agent, Ron found his ideal role with Bartercard, where he helped to grow the local brokerage dramatically. Working as a telemarketer and personal assistant to the Sales Manager, he soon became the go-to person for new clients wanting to maximise their membership participation. The opportunities and business generated by Ron in his genuine desire to help, quickly led to his Sales Manager becoming the top Bartercard Salesperson in the World.
Ron enjoyed more than 16 years at Bartercard, receiving numerous promotions and opportunities to work in a variety of roles from customer service to management and staff supervision. Ron credits Bartercard for expanding his abilities to match up one client’s needs with another client’s products and services, therefore enabling these clients to expand their trade capabilities and maximise the benefits of their membership.
These skills have provided the perfect foundation for launching his role at Resicom Access. Ron is loving being back in the real estate industry where he generates new business as well as matching clients from different divisions to the diverse range of services available within the group. Regardless of how a client is introduced, Ron takes responsibility for their care, making regular quality service calls to ensure they’re well looked after.
On the social scene, Ron has always been a keen backstroke swimmer and since arriving in Perth, he’s been heavily involved with Masters Swimming. For almost 30 years his administration skills have been put to good use at the Thornlie Swimming Club, where he has held roles as Club Captain, Vice President and President.
Currently, Ron volunteers most weekends to work as a Referee at Masters Swimming events (Pool and Open Water) and also officiates each week for the junior swimmers at Thornlie. In 2014 Ron was named National Masters Swimming Official of the year and more recently, he has been invited to Italy and Canada to referee at the FINA World Masters Championships.
As well as time spent with his extended family, travel is also a favourite past time. He also enjoys most sports and still supports his English soccer team.
