MEET THE OWNER, FOUNDER & ACCREDITED MFAA/FBAA MENTOR/CPASylvia MacFarlaine

Sylv (as she prefers) has 26 years of Accounting and Finance Experience and couldn't be more passionate about the Mortgage and Finance Broking Industry if she tried. Incredibly committed to Broker development she eats and breaths her tag line - "building your business for tomorrow". She defines her "superpower" as a solution specialist - her unique ability to think outside the box defines her entrepreneurial mindset, bringing innovation, resourcefulness and impact to the lives of Brokers. Her purpose is to make sure Brokers are achieving their ultimate level of success.

Driven to find solutions to alleviate broker pain points – Sylv’s ultimate focus is to empower through knowledge and self-education, and impact through action. She believes that we are all RESOURCEFUL especially when we want something bad enough. But sometimes we just need help finding the resources.

Sylv knows first-hand just how lonely business can be and what its like to be unsupported. After 26 years of self-employment running a 6-figure business (part time), Sylv wants to share her secrets to success. But she also wants you to know that traditional methods are outdated. So she’s is ready to rock the status quo and prepare Brokers for the long game.

By her own admissions “my transition into Broking was challenging and learning by trial and error. It cost me time , money and a lot of stress. I want better outcomes for Brokers”

Sylv advises “New models that focus on the three elements of sustainability – community, environment and financial outcomes are emerging, and the market is ready for them. The time is ripe for Mortgage and Finance Brokers to make an impact and set the benchmark for ethical lending and best customer outcomes.”

MEET THE MARKETING MANAGER & ADMINISTRATOR Kimberley Valkanis

Kimberley has been passionate about the media industry since picking up her first camera at 16 in high school. Ever since, she’s been curious about everything in the media world. Either its photography, film, advertising or social media. After receiving a media award out of everyone in year 12, Kimberley knew she wanted to pursue a career in this field.

She then completed a diploma and degree at Deakin University, where she graduated with an overall Distinction. Kimberley has worked for various internships, gaining experience in the real world. From a restaurant to a dentist, she has learnt to communicate to different target audiences online.

If 2020 taught her anything, it would be how to market businesses, how to use social media to your advantage and utilising social media creatively in a way to connect with clients.

But if Kimberley could teach YOU anything, it would be to take advantage of all the little aspects that new media offers. In other words, “film yourself how much you love what you do and share it!”

Helping brands and businesses stand out online
as well as grow a connection with their audience.
