Dee Rutherford

Finance Specialist & Customer Service Superstar

Ordinarily nestled behind her desk in leafy Warranwood, Dee’s organisational skills and boundless motivation is all about making Evimero’s clients feel supported with first class care.

Dee has a Diploma of Finance & Mortgage Broking Management with experience in lending and credit assessments to procure premium solutions. From helping clients with application submissions and compliance requirements, to liaising with all parties to ensure optimal decision-making strategies are applied, Dee also has core strengths in budget management, strategic planning, data analysis and reporting back in simple terms that you can understand.

Essentially, Dee is a passionate negotiator who helps to pull everything together.

Dee will go through your initial aspirational goals, help you understand what’s possible, and then set about the process of setting the wheels in motion. Where you might stumble as you struggle with the hurdles of attaining the loan, and then the paperwork, the conveyancing/solicitor reviews, the timing of the settlement and payment schedules, you couldn’t ask for a more empathetic and compassionate person to be your guide.

And when the gloves come off and she’s just Dee, you’ll find her at home with her hubby and three children. Whether it’s taking the kids to their sporting activities, connecting with people at church, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, or investing time into the Kivuli Project in Kenya (which she co-founded), Dee is always doing something!

Christian Arsenis

Finance Specialist & Lending Genius

Behind his beaming smile, there lurks an analytical powerhouse of positive energy. Christian can usually be found out on the road meeting clients, lenders, and anyone else who doesn’t mind a chat! He’s no fool either! Christian loves ALL people, and particularly loves helping families, individuals and businesses realise their financial dreams.

Sharing his extensive banking and lending knowledge is exactly what he does best.

Christian has a Diploma of Finance & Mortgage Broking Management, with extraordinary experience in Senior Corporate Business and Bank Management, Home Loan Lending, Superannuation Funds and so much more. He understands the processes of loan applications (especially complex ones), the hoops you may need to jump through, the proof required to justify the loan, and all of the quagmire that goes into the issuing of both commercial and domestic loan documents and approvals.

Driven and conscientious, and a great communicator on all levels, Christian puts his heart and soul into finding the best money saving outcomes for his clients, whilst setting them on a pathway to prosperity. Each client is unique, and tailoring the right loan, at the optimal lending rate, takes time, but Christian is patient enough to keep digging and dogmatic when it comes to striking an excellent deal for you.

Both Christian and Dee believe in giving back at every opportunity and look for ways to use their abilities to add value within their community. Likewise, Christian knows the importance of a healthy work/life balance, so when he’s not working, he’s spending time with his amazing wife and two awesome boys (and Molly the dog). And, whenever he gets the chance, you’ll find him surfing, skiing, fishing or camping in the great outdoors.

Zoe Bernado

Finance Specialist & Customer Service Superstar

Fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, Zoe has exceptional skills when it comes to communicating with our clients, and her enthusiasm for working hard to help people secure the right lending solutions spans more than ten years.

Zoe has a string of qualifications, including a Diploma of Finance & Mortgage Broking Management, and an Advanced Diploma of Business. She is also a Certified Kaplan Tier 2 Financial Adviser, with other specific lending certification in Residential Property Lending and Home Loans, Credit Cards and Personal Loans.

When Zoe meets new clients, particularly, she springs to attention, digs deep for any information that she feels is important to your situation, and goes about the process of finding the right product to suit – with a hop, step, and a jump. She’ll leave nothing to chance.

Zoe’s background, as a Lending Specialist, evolved by starting out as a Customer Service Consultant for two leading banks. She soon rose in stature to be in charge of Home Loan Analysis, Assessments, and Applications. Throw in a stack of other experience in arranging and managing Term Deposits, General and Life Insurance and Key Customer Portfolios, and you have an all-rounder! No matter what, Zoe understands finance and the processes that need to be undertaken to help people succeed and grow, and indeed navigate closer to their dreams through the best possible lending options.

You’ll usually find Zoe in the office, connecting the dots with precision, and making sure that every possibility has been explored, and that every conversation and calculation counts towards another attainable loan choice – for you. She does draw the line at leaping over tall buildings though – but you get the drift.

Zoe’s free time usually involves baking amazing treats to eat, travel, dabbling in her own property investment endeavours, and scratching her head about what her two high school children are wanting to get up to next.
