Paulette Trotter

Director and Mortgage Adviser

Publicly Available Disclosure

I have worked passionately in the finance industry for over 30 years, been employed by two major banks during this period, and been an independent Mortgage Adviser since February 2017. Without a doubt, I have the experience to help you secure the loan you need. I work for you and not the banks! I'll communicate with you on time, every time so your property transaction becomes stress-free and the exciting new project it should be. I want you to get the best possible outcome, saving you money. I get satisfaction in achieving exceptional outcomes for my clients. I'll get to know you and your specific situation, and I'll speak to you in real, understandable terminology.


Lucy Bremner

Customer Service Manager

I started with Loanmarket at the beginning of 2019 and for Paulette specifically in March of that year. My working career started with ANZ in Whakatane, way back in 1987, before leaving in 1996 to raise my three boys.  After a stint living in Singapore I returned to the Bay of Plenty and started work with Westpac Whakatane in 2011 before transferring to Howick branch until Loanmarket knocked on my door.

In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, both weight training and 9Rounds, and have recently found enjoyment in hiking up and down mountains with my husband Mike. Along with Mike, we enjoy watching sport & travelling, if we can combine the two, that's even better! In quiet moments I enjoy reading, catching up on my television shows, and hanging with our dog Maggie, a slightly crazy Hungarian Viszla.


Meshie Naidoo 

Customer Service Manager

I am a seasoned finance professional, having worked with Paulette at Loan Market now for almost 3 years. Prior to this, I spent 19 years at ANZ. In my spare time, I treasure moments with my family, relishing in their company while enjoying red wine and music. I also enjoy time with my grand daughter- we love cooking and baking together.


Maureen Hunt

Customer Service Manager

I started with Paulette in September 2019 and prior to that worked as Customer Services Manager and as an Insurance Broker for PIC Insurance Brokers.  Having said that, my main roles have been in the banking industry formerly with ASB, Postbank (now ANZ), and Waikato Savings Bank - thats going back a number of years!!

I love watching most sports golf, cricket, soccer, league, rugby, hockey, tennis, etc.  I have not actively participated for a number of years however I am keen to get back into tennis after a few this space.  I love to walk to stay healthy and to enjoy the outdoors plus I'm an avid reader - more on crime/action stories but happy to read recommended books or biographies.


Rachel McGrath

I have worked for Paulette since October 2020.  Previous to this, I was an executive assistant to a Ray White director looking after 30 agents.  Prior to that I was working in an accounts role for a commercial building company, and prior to that I was a business and home lender with ANZ for approx 10 years. In my spare time, as I have 2 children, we like to keep active, playing squash, boxing and soccer.  I also enjoy taking on small building improvement projects around home.

Corrine Hughes

Adviser Assistant

I have been with LoanMarket since 2013 and before that worked for Westpac in the branch network and then approving the broker applications at head office. 

I think it is such a privilege to play a part in such an exciting chapter in people’s lives. Whether it is buying, moving, investing or renovating property!

After living in Auckland for 7 years & working from the Highland Park office we moved down to Hawkes Bay in 2019. Since then I have been lucky to work remotely for Paulette while living down here on a lifestyle property with my husband and three kids!
