Barry Elmslie – Senior Finance Consultant

Barry commenced his career in Banking in 1977 becoming a Finance Broker in 1988. Barry has held a WA Finance Brokers Licence since 1993.

Barry believes to be successful as a home loan and finance specialist you must understand market trends and your product, however it is the relationships that we build that are more beneficial to our clients. “It is not only our product knowledge that can help our clients but the relationships with lenders built over many years. In today’s busy world it is almost impossible for the average client to build a relationship with a lender as may have happened in the past. Most transactions and contact is now via the telephone or internet. Our relationships built over many years can make all the difference when a client is trying to secure finance for that special property”.
