Meet Steve, the proud owner of Peninsula Home Loans since 2012.
The business grew out of Steve’s passion for both finance and his community in the Mornington Peninsula.
The Covid19 lockdowns were devastating for Steve, as they brought a halt to a core part of his business – building and managing relationships with his customers.
Steve decided to innovate, organising virtual appointments and electronic signatures of documents, which allowed him to continue operating.
This transition was made easier as his customers were flexible and understanding – although they say they miss the personal experience.
To give back to the Peninsula, Steve sponsors the local Mt Eliza soccer team and donates hampers to the community for fundraising events.
Although the soccer season was put on hold during the pandemic, Steve says they will continue their sponsorship, but he misses the engagement with the community.
