Businesses are nothing without the people in them. Meet My Mortgage - we LOVE our people.

Meet My Mortgage

Adam Thompson
Mortgage Adviser - Company Director

Adam has been a Mortgage Adviser since 2007 and started My Mortgage in 2012 in an effort to deliver a more personalized service to his clients using all of the benefits of available technology and to cut down on the jargon used by a lot of banks and Financial Advisers.

Adam has recently built a new house on 30 acres near Cambridge so when he's not talking Mortgages he'll be on the farm with his family or in the bush.

As someone in his early 30's, a property investor and having bought his first home at 18, Adam can see the lending process from a number of different angles and really enjoys getting to know his clients well so that he can achieve the best result in the long term. He keeps saying that he'll be doing this until he retires and is looking for clients who want certainty of service in the long term and can build a long term relationship to get the best home loans options and ongoing advice

Claire Williamson (Martin)
Mortgage Adviser - Company Director

Claire joined the My Mortgage team in 2015 following an OE and previous experience in Sports Management, Accounting and Retail. Her enthusiastic approach to giving people real old fashioned service and working tirelessly for a great result has seen her strike up some excellent client relationships and she's always looking for more.

Claire is passionate about working with first home buyers and those people who want that hands on service with all of the jargon explained in simple terms.

She lives rurally near Cambridge and when she's not working she loves hanging out with her animals, growing things in the garden, climbing mountains and exploring all the awesome things NZ has to offer.

Greg, his wife and their 3 children have recently built a home in Cambridge and love the Waipa lifestyle of being central to everything and getting to live in New Zealand's "most beautiful large town" (As decided in the Keep New Zealand Beautiful Awards, 2019)

Hannah Dyer
Lending Process Manager - Shareholder

Hannah joined the team in 2017 having previously worked as a Bank Manager for Westpac and in Insurance Support roles which have given her the perfect background to run the lending part of our business.

Hannah is in charge of compiling the perfect loan application and making sure we get the best offer from the bank.
