Carla Della Gatta

I am the Operations Manager at The Loan Machine, looking after clients post settlement. I confirm their new loan details and perform ongoing, regular loan reviews, to ensure their loan continues to meet their financial goals and their rate remains market competitive. I pride myself on building a long-lasting relationship with the client where they can approach me directly with any post settlement queries.

Changing lenders, setting up accounts and internet banking can be overwhelming, and I do my best to make this process simple and stress free for clients, liaising with the lender on the client’s behalf wherever possible. I love assisting our clients and ensuring they are comfortable with their new loan. I also manage the recruitment and training of new staff and as a stickler for process, love strategising process improvements to increase business efficiency.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two teenagers, watching my kids play sport, relaxing at the beach, walks with my Groodle, and curling up with a good book.

I am a Broker Assistant for the dedicated team of brokers of The Loan Machine. I collate and follow up documents and client information to assist with lodgement of loan applications. Once our team of brokers confirm the goals and objectives of our clients I assist to ensure we have a smooth application to bank and hopefully a prompt and stress-free approval.  As with all our processes at the Loan Machine our focus is always keeping our clients informed at all stages of the pre and post loan process, and to answer any concerns efficiently in a professional and concise manner.

My relaxation times are spent watching my family play their sport, catching up with friends, reading and completing challenging jigsaw puzzles.
