Administration Super Heroes, in no particular order…
Tam(ra) joined the team late 2019 as broker assistant to both Tameeka and Carrie. She has over 15 years of customer service experience and delights in being a part of helping our clients achieve their property dreams. In her spare time (apart from growing a tiny human) she loves adventuring around our beautiful state with her hubby and fur babies.
Sophie comes to Up after 18 years with Westpac mainly working as a Business Analyst in the new projects space. Sophie is looking forward to moving into a more personal work environment where she will be able to give Carrie’s clients individual attention and personalised service. Outside of work Sophie is the mother to two beautiful kids who keep her incredibly busy with all types of sports and activities. Weekends are either spent running to different sporting activities or spending time down the east coast with her fishing mad hubby and water loving kids.
Keisha joined the Up team in 2020, after previously having worked at Westpac for 10 years, and then buying a bakery! After 6 years of bakery life, she was missing working in finance and decided to move on from the world of bread, and make her return to the finance industry with our very lucky team! Now she misses bread… kidding! Outside of work, Keisha is a keen marathon runner (I know, eeek) and enjoys hiking in the mountains, especially in Winter, when she says it’s best as you barely see a soul for days! She also loves travelling around the world when she can, and spending time with her partner, step-kids and two dogs.
Ella is not just the beautiful face in the mural on the side of our building, although that is pretty cool, she is also the youngest person on our team, and an absolute gun… at everything! Ella joined the Up Loans team mid 2020, right in the middle of the years craziness, as an administrative assistant to Kirsty. With years of customer service experience under her belt, Ella is the first voice you hear when you call us, and she loves helping our clients with all their property needs – she especially loves seeing the excitement of first home buyers, as she is hoping to be one herself this year! Ella likes to travel her home state camping and hiking (even though she has a terrible fear of heights) and we’ve heard that Ella and her partner Elliott may or may not have hiked Cradle Mountain around 10 times one year…!
Georgia is one of the young guns at Up Loans, only just graduating Year 12 in 2020. She decided that Uni wasn’t for her so went straight into working full time for Team Tameeka at the start of 2021. Georgia is also furthering her skills by completing a traineeship with us for a Certificate III in Business Admin. In her spare time she plays a lot of sports. Netball and basketball are the two main favourites, but she’s pretty pumped to give anything a red hot go. Georgia loves being outdoors, especially at the beach and in the ocean (even though the thought of large open water scares the heck out of her) and her life goal is to travel the world and experience all the wonderful sights!
Isabel joined the Up Loans team in December 2020, fresh out of school after finishing year 12, which makes her the baby of the team. Between passionately updating us on whatever Harry Styles has been up to this week, and encouraging other team members in the break room to watch old One Direction music videos, she also wonderfully fulfils her role as administration assistant to Kirsty (and making us all laugh constantly). Isabel’s main job involves calling banks (so many banks!!), as well as doing all sorts of other day to day organisational tasks, which although probably doesn’t sound that exciting, her little Virgo heart lives for the satisfaction of creating order amidst the chaos which is Kirsty. Although she has a lot of adventures left to have before she enters the world of property herself, Isabel is enjoying learning about the first home buying process and can’t wait until the time comes when she moves into her own home. Whenever she can, Isabel tries to get down to her family shack on the east coast, hanging out on the beach with her doggo and surfing if the ocean’s not too freezing cold!
Eliza joined Up Loans in mid 2021 as a broker assistant to Carrie. She comes to Up Loans with a wealth of knowledge after spending five years in a local Conveyancing firm practicing in all areas of property transfer – in fact the Up team have been dealing with Eliza for years as she assisted their clients to make their settlements as smooth as possible. Excitingly, Eliza purchased her first home at the very fresh age of 19 years old and was able to experience Up Loans as a client. She is currently building her second home (at a whole 21 years old!) Outside of work you’ll find Eliza travelling around Tasmania on road trips with her partner or curled up on the couch with a blanket watching a movie. Eliza is almost as excited to be working with Up Loans as we are to have her.
Lucy joined Up Loans with a great deal of excitement and trepidation. After a decade working in Hopsitality and the Arts, it was time for a change of hours and industry (which her two cats and two humans have been very pleased about). Lucy has a passion for people-pleasing, absolutely loves finding solutions to problems, and after experiencing the high of that first home purchase herself, she can’t wait to help more people get that feeling for themselves! If you need a friendly face, or a reassuring voice, Lucy will be here to answer the phone, suggest a nice wine, and handball the big issues to the big guns (thanks, upper Up Team!).
Sallys role is also to help get our files from approval to settlement as quickly and as smoothly as possible. She has 25 years of banking experience, from branch banking through to coaching and supporting managers and teams. Her passion is helping others and finds nothing more rewarding than making a positive difference to our clients. Her other (slightly more exotic) passion is Scuba Diving, particularly scuba diving with the elusive Leafy Sea Dragon!
Karl’s sunny disposition and eager attitude make him the perfect lead loan processor on our team. His job is to be the details ninja and make sure that our submissions are going into the bank with the best possible chance of approval! In his spare time Karl enjoys travelling to the beach and spending time with family & friends.
Dave joined the Up Loans team mid 2018, and his attention to detail and solution focused attitude have meant he has fast become an integral part of our loan processing team. In his spare time Dave enjoys spending time with his pets and reading.
