Led by owner and company director Robert Carmichael
Certitude has grown out of a desire to support Australians through the key financial decisions that become milestones in their lives. At 22 years of age, Robert experienced first-hand the difference a good mortgage broker can make during the home buying process.
Welcome to my world of mortgage finance, where experience meets enthusiasm. My journey in this industry was sparked by a personal experience that reshaped our outlook on home ownership and mortgage brokerage.
At the young age of 22, my wife and I were intensely focused on saving and realizing our dream of purchasing a home. We took the bold step of purchasing land and engaging a builder. It all seemed like a dream come true, until unexpected challenges emerged. There was a major issue with the land, and later, a series of complications arose with the builder. Suddenly, the dream of completing our house hung in the balance, and the stress was nothing short of overwhelming.
We notified our Mortgage Broker. He not only introduced us to people who could help us secure a different block of land but secured a loan for us when we thought the banks would surely decline. He also played a pivotal role in navigating the complex challenges that we had as young inexperienced home buyers. With his sound advice, patient guidance, and the ability to explain complex financial matters in a way we could grasp, he made all the difference in what was once a tumultuous house-building experience for our young family.
This transformative encounter with our own mortgage broker ignited a fire within me. It set me on a path to become a mortgage broker myself, driven by the aspiration to become as knowledgeable and versatile in the industry as possible. I was determined to provide the same level of support and guidance that had made a world of difference to my wife and I as we navigated this challenging chapter in our lives.
Today, as the director of Certitude Finance Group, and an experienced mortgage broker, I am confident in the impact I can make on my clients during what can sometimes be a highly stressful time. My goal is to always be as supportive, informative, and instrumental as our mortgage broker was to us. My journey, fuelled by personal experience, a passion for helping others to not only have home ownership but also to create wealth has led me here, ready to guide you and your loved ones toward your own financial dreams.
