laurie-on-vespa-IMG_8307medium-cropped-retouched-250-x-250Laurie is the founder of Awesome Mortgages and is a former banking executive with the kudos of having been appointed as New Zealand’s youngest bank manager. He has an MBA (with distinction) and is a registered financial adviser specialising in mortgage and insurance advice. Download the Disclosure Statement for Laurie Wills.

Laurie is well known for his polished negotiating skills and persuasive ability with the banks  – skills he mastered negotiating with protective landowners access to rugged and little explored terrain in Papua New Guinea. And every now and then his black belt in karate comes in handy!

He thrives on achievement with a proven track record of getting extra-ordinary results for his clients. If he’s not getting his clients awesome mortgage and insurance deals, and sharing his legendary ability to forecast interest rate movements, Laurie will most likely be somewhere deep in the South American jungle pursuing his passion for discovering butterflies new to science. Because of the wonders of modern technology and communication, he’ll often be doing both! Read more about Laurie here >>
