Ellen moved to New Zealand from Cornwall in England in 2006. After selling real estate in Whangarei for a time, she joined the team at New Zealand Home Loans in September 2014. Ellen is well-versed in the skills of mortgage management and wealth creation, having owned a portfolio of rental properties in England. Here, she has a lifestyle block in Ruatangata and is also beginning to actively seek out rental opportunities.

A keen kayaker who has a strong sense of social responsiblity driving her, Ellen is enjoying being part of her community. She has a German Shepherd puppy and will soon join the Whangarei dog training association, while her interests in holistic living, health and safety and property investment mean she will come into regular contact with many people who could benefit from New Zealand Home Loans’ approach to debt management.

A disclosure statement is available on request at no charge by emailing me.
