Simone Ettridge

Lending Specialist

Simone is appreciated around the office for her in-depth knowledge of the multitude of lending partners on offer to our clients. Her expertise lies in understanding what position clients are in to take the leap into taking out a mortgage and preparing them for what lies ahead.

With over 20 years’ experience and background in the banking world, Simone really enjoys being able to create a positive experience for all lending clients she works with. Liaising with clients and researching the different lending options are a daily task for Simone. The support she receives from the lending team is what makes her enjoy working for the Hrkac Group, which she has been part of for the last 12 years.

Keeping herself active, Simone enjoys regularly playing tennis. She also enjoys keeping her skills up at both snow and water skiing depending on the season. Simone loves going home to her husband, two adult(ish) kids, and two energetic Kelpies. On weekends, Simone also loves going out and spending time with friends.
