William Shillito

Mortgage Lending Advisor

William is a Mortgage Lending Advisor with over 3 years’ experience in Mortgage Broking and over 7 years in property. He holds both a Bachelor of Tourism Management and a Diploma of Finance & Mortgage Broking Management.

Born in Melbourne but having lived most of his life in New Zealand, William has always been passionate about travelling and property. In 2017, he decided to combine both interests and move to London in pursuit of a job in property. This landed him a job as an Operations Manager for a home rentals agency where he dealt with customer issues while they were staying at the properties he looked after. Naturally, this also included liaising with contractors, drafting contracts as well as other property maintenance tasks. After 2 years in London, he decided to move to Melbourne to be closer to family and that’s when an opportunity popped up at Empower Wealth.

Initially, what drew William to Empower Wealth was the company’s commitment to prioritising customers, a value closely aligned with his own. Upon joining, he discovered the depth of the company’s offerings, sparking a strong interest in wealth creation and cash flow management. Witnessing the tangible impact on clients’ financial futures further fuelled his enthusiasm, especially upon learning about the Money SMARTS system and its potential to enhance household financial management. He has now successfully harnessed this system to purchase a property of his own.

A lifelong sports enthusiast, William received a sports scholarship throughout his university years. Outside of work, he enjoys exploring Melbourne and attending cricket games at the MCG. A devoted soccer fan, he played for years in Christchurch and passionately supports Tottenham Hotspur.

Bede was instrumental to us securing our forever home. We purchased in Sydney in January 2021 with stiff competition after 1 15 minute inspection and 70 groups through the open. The relationship we had built with Bede through our search gave us confidence to act decisively on the purchase on short notice, without formal approvals in place. William and the settlements team were professional and gave us confidence that all would go through... and it did. Thanks a lot to the whole empower team for your support.

Dean Wills and William Shillito from Empower wealth team were outstanding in terms of understanding our needs and finances. They got us almost 100K more than any mortgage broker in Canberra could get us. They negotiated for us with the bank and chose the best product with the best interest rate for us. Our loan approval was completed in less than a week. That is the fastest turnaround time I have ever heard for a bank. We also appreciated their help and answering all our questions at every stage of our loan as this was the first time for us. They were actively following up with the bank, solicitor for the bank, our solicitor, buyer’s agent, real estate agent, and us for our loan and settlement to make sure things went predictable and on time. We really had peace of mind working with them knowing that they knew this back to front and were very experienced.

As a first-time property investor, the aspect that I understood the least was the finance side of things. Simon and William did an amazing job answering my questions and being able to explain things in a way that I understood. They made the process extremely smooth for me. I'll be using Empower Wealth for my next property that's for sure.
