Simon Gillespie

Finance Advisor

Simon is a Finance Advisor at Empower Wealth with more than twelve years combined experience in Financial Planning and Mortgage Broking. Simon holds a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning), Certificate IV in Financial Services (Finance/Mortgage Broking) and a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management.

With a background in manufacturing, Simon chose a new career in finance after returning from living abroad for two years. Initially starting his career as a Financial Planner, Simon found an interest in lending structures, strategy and processes early on in his career. Since then he has found a real joy in helping friends and clients buy their homes while educating them about the benefits of correct lending structures and how to use their money in smarter ways. Simon believes he has found himself in the unique position to help people realise their dreams and finds this work very fulfilling.

Simon’s role within the business is to analyse a client’s financial situation and put a plan in place to help them achieve their goals through purchasing and investing in property. He believes that in his position, clear communication is just as important as knowledge and is continually seeking to improve his skills as a Finance Advisor.

Simon’s spare time is primarily spent with his young family, but he loves to take any opportunity to jump on his mountain bike and race downhill. Simon is working on building his own property portfolio using the skills and knowledge that are available within the Empower Wealth team of specialists with the plans to replicate what he teaches his own clients to do in building passive income so he can spend more time working on his golf handicap.

I must congratulate Simon and his team for another successful loan application which enabled us to purchase another investment property. I would say these tighter lending conditions where our expenses and discretionary spendings were scrutinised and questioned by the bank would have put more pressure on Simon and his team. However, they made it feel like it was a seamless process.

Simon and his team were fantastic. He explained the mortgage process clearly and worked closely with the other teams to ensure that I was getting the best I could. Already I am saving hundreds of dollars a month and have some excellent mortgage rates. I fully recommend Simon and his team for sensational service. They have truly exceeded my expectations.

It has been a very smooth and informative process right from the initial interview until the settlement of our first purchase. We had our questions answered in very timely manner and the handover to different professionals was seamless. Absolutely professional and yet personable service.

Fantastic communication & service. Friendly staff.

Dealing with Simon, Jade and the rest of the Empower Wealth mortgage broking team as a stand alone experience was fantastic, but using them in conjunction with the buyers agency service was where thing really came into there own! Having the two teams working together and having a central file of all my important info made the whole process 100% hassle free. I would highly recommend their services to anyone, and did in fact recommend them to my sister who is looking purchase... but she instead chose to completely ignore my sage advice and went for a pre-approval with Suncorp because "I do my banking with them".  Don't fall victim the same "I told you so" wrath I will be subjecting her to in 5 years time, give the team a call!
