An article revealed a study where training alone was compared to life coaching combined with training. The study showed that training combined with weekly life coaching increased productivity.

Sylvia has been an excellent source of insights on third party financial services. Firsthand knowledge of the sector coupled with her impressive business acumen, growth mindset and forward-thinking approach to learning and development sets her apart as a force to be reckoned with. MyVirtualMentor is a game-changer and one of the few offerings that truly places the finance broker at the heart of everything it does.

Sarah Barnett – Founder/Director – Brokermatch

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

I begun working with Sylvia as I commenced my career as a finance broker. Sylvia’s extensive knowledge and understanding in relation to understanding financial data and complex loan structures was crucial for my business in becoming familiar in how banks and financial institutions assess applications. I felt comfortable in the knowledge that Sylvia was working alongside me to grow my business. Sylvia’s patience and understanding was instrumental in me becoming the broker I am today and her skillset as a coach are second to none.

John Costa- Mortgage and Finance Broker Kensington

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

Sylvia is a great coach with extensive knowledge in accounting and lending. Sylvia has been a great help to me as I was new to the industry and had a basic knowledge level. She is both patient and persistent making sure I always got the best out of myself. I have learnt a lot from Sylvia and will continue to go to her for advice when in need.

Sylvia impressive level of qualifications and experience clearly demonstrates her impact within the Finance Industry as both a professional in the industry and as a resource supporting the industry. Her commitment to developing quality Brokers, best customer outcomes and the longevity of the industry are both commendable and welcomed. In my interactions with Sylvia (since 2009) I have found her to be professional, passionate and easy to communicate with. Sylvia is patient and has the right balance between discipline and empathy to support Brokers in their learning journey. Sylvia is not shy about her message and mission to empower brokers through knowledge-based education and making resources available to support them toward business success

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

Sylvia is highly knowledgeable about creating a successful and sustainable mortgage business regardless of the individual’s experience.  She is sincerely invested in the success of the mortgage brokers she works with and demonstrates this by “getting into the trenches”.  Importantly, her ability to quickly identify strengths and areas for improvement is what sets her apart from other coaches/mentors.

Ben Livera – FBM Mortgage Choice SA/NT

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

Coming from an IT background, finance industry and mortgage broking was new to me. I could see a steep learning curve. Fortunately for me Sylvia MasFarlaine was an excellent coach who was extremely helpful in building my skills in all aspects of my business, including: Lead generation; qualifying leads; client interview and qualifying; packaging loan applications; compliance and quality checks; end to end processes; post settlement customer care; business management; and Implementing best practices.  Sylvia’s in depth knowledge of the industry helped me to quickly get up on my feel and start writing loans. Her professional approach and practical hands on approach helped me develop key skills and build a successful mortgage broking business. I would be happy to recommend her services to any one who want to set up a new business or grow their existing business to the next level.

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

I have known Sylvia for over 10 years in my Network but never really got the opportunity to work together till recently. I referred Sylvia and received sensational feedback. The broker was a regional broker who has gone from being an introvert to now actively seeking out Referral partners. She has worked on the Vision and Mission of the broker business and motivated the broker to put SMART steps in place to move forward in his business.

Anthony Wickremasinghe – Partnerhship Manager – nMB

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

Working with Sylvia MacFarlaine is wonderful. I find her as someone with great experience as well as profound knowledge of business solutions. Her hands-on approach as an accounting & lending specialist and strong personality, gains the respect from whom she associates with. She is organized and Customer-service oriented and has no problem to work hard when necessary. Result driven, experienced and efficient team player. Delivers results and moves on to the next task. That’s Sylvia MacFarlaine’s way. Dedicated and goal oriented strategist that cannot be underestimated.

Minas Economidis – Mortgage and Finance Broker Point Cook.

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

I met Sylvia at a business luncheon in Melbourne. Sylvia’s straight forward and personable nature was very refreshing. It is very clear Sylvia very knowledgeable in her area of expertise and is leading the way with her many projects. I would highly recommend working with Sylvia if you get the opportunity.

Monica Polemicos – Founder/Director – Hypnolab.

https://myvirtualmentor.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/quote.png

Sylvia has extensive experience in accounting and finance, having managed her own successful accountancy business for many years. In my dealings with her, Sylvia has been a committed and professional coach and mentor, and she has been extremely valuable to me by helping me develop my skill-set quickly and thoroughly. I would not hesitate in recommending Sylvia as a valuable asset to anyone that needs focused and intuitive mentoring.
