Narelle Hillgrove

Mortgage Broker Assistant

Narelle brings a wealth of experience and diverse expertise to her role. She holds a Certificate IV and a Diploma in Finance and Mortgage Broking, along with a Diploma in Financial Services. With a remarkable 20-year background in property investing and home improvements, Narelle has a deep understanding of the real estate market. Her professional journey includes previous roles in home and motor insurance claims, as well as procurement, demonstrating her versatility and breadth of knowledge.

One of Narelle’s most fulfilling achievements is her ability to assist and guide others into home ownership or investment properties. This aspect of her career has provided her with immense satisfaction over the years. Prior to her current pursuits, Narelle had a distinguished career in the public service, including seven years in the Defence Force, where she served with active duty in the Kuwait/Iraq region as part of a ship’s medical team and as a chef.

After high school, Narelle trained as a chef, a skill she continues to enjoy. She is a married mother of three and describes herself as a self-confessed chocoholic, humorously offering a “dessert removal service.” Narelle has a passion for traveling overseas, experiencing different cultures, foods, and market shopping. She also loves spending time with her border collie and poodle, dining out, and catching up with friends.
