Our dedicated team
CEO & Director
Professionally, Matt has a combined 23 years in banking, mortgage broking, property legals and budgeting. Specifically, Matt was a bank Manager with Bank of Queensland, before taking a stake in a start up mortgage broking business, which he then built up and sold, to become a business partner and Director of Conveyancing Works Solicitors. Matt and his partners grew this business to be the largest conveyancing business in Australia, before deciding to sell to Slater & Gordon. Following the successful sale of this business, Matt committed to a National Business Development Role with Slater & Gordon in Melbourne, to help set up Conveyancing nationally.
Personally, Matt has been involved in both residential and commercial property investment since 2000. Matt studied a Bachelor of Commerce and has completed a Cert IV in Finance and Mortgage broking and is accredited with the FBAA. Matt has a Life Coaching qualification coupled with many years of personal and business life coaching experience.
On a lighter note, Matt loves all things sport – particularly Rugby League, Rugby Union (an avid Queenslander!) He is a keen trail runner and can now call himself an ultra marathon runner with a few 50km+ and 100km trail races under his belt. He also has a personal interest in raising funds for Type1Diabetes and volunteering as a Life Saver at Met Caloundra Surf Life Saving Club.
Marketing & Strategy
Nerida has a Bachelor of International Business, with a marketing major. She has worked in marketing for 20 years with a particular focus on brand marketing, start up branding and marketing strategy. Nerida is also a graphic designer. She has owned her own consulting business/s since 2005, working in the legal, financial, industrial and property industries, in between having three children.
Nerida also loves sport and fitness, camping and travelling, great food and good coffee. Her family will tell you she’s a crazy runner too – with trail ultra marathons being her event of choice! Matt and Nerida have run the Blackall 100km trail race in the Sunshine Coast hinterland (twice) and done multiple 50km+ events and have spoken about some crazy plans to do longer events down the track (pardon the pun!)
Senior Mortgage Broker
Roger has over 35 years experience working in the finance industry, assisting clients with their lending solutions. Prior to becoming a mortgage broker, Roger worked as a Senior Relationship Manager and Business Banker with ANZ, based right here on the Sunshine Coast.
Roger is an extremely valued member of The Savings Centre team. With his kind and compassionate nature, you will feel at ease working with Roger as you purchase your property or look to refinance existing loans. Rog says he loves all facets of finance, but of particular enjoyment and satisfaction is when dealing with clients buying their first home, particularly the ones that don’t have huge savings. It is very rewarding.
When Rog is not in the office, he loves golf, fishing and boating, family life and grandkids (perhaps not always in that order!!) He also enjoys watching most sports, especially rugby league and golf.

Sam has been working in finance for around ten years and is a born leader within The Savings Centre team. As a senior mortgage broker, Sam has worked with many clients to achieve outcomes across residential and investment property lending – including those with complex business structures. He knows our lenders products inside and out – with an amazing ability to recall which lenders are offering which products at what rates on any given day. Quite a skill!
Sam is born and bred on the Sunshine Coast, and purchased his first property some years ago, thanks to some very dedicated budgeting and saving!

These days Mary manages our front reception, looking after our amazing clients at the front end and also keeping the rest of The Savings Centre team organised with where they need to be, doing what they need to be doing! On her days off, Mary loves to swing a golf club and hang out with her grandkids, rushing from soccer to netball to Nippers on a weekend!
These guys are the best in the business. I have been a client for a couple of years and have put them through their paces but no challenge is too big for them. They have superb service, and are tireless in their pursuit of helping us achieve our financial goals. Best of all, they are all honest and lead with integrity. Strongly recommend even if you’re not local to the Sunshine Coast – distance is no barrier.
Excellent customer service. The Savings Centre is able to achieve a very good refinancing option for us in a short period of time. Highly recommend for property buyer / investor looking for a broker that can deliver results.
Thank you all for your service, it is great to do business with you. Looking forward to working with you more in the future.
Friendly, proactive group of people! Thanks guys.
Cristine, The Sunshine Coast
Would like to commend Matt and his staff for their friendly service and willingness to help. Haven’t needed to use their service at this time, however because of the positive communication and generous attitude and advice, will definitely be our first port of call if we have a need for finance in the future. Happy to recommend your services. Many thanks once again.
Fantastic service from every member of The Savings Centre team that we dealt with. They were always happy to help and answer any questions we had in regards to the process. Thank you all!!!
I used “The Savings Centre” to change loans and set up a new loan structure. They found a great deal and managed the loan transition all the way through. Nothing was a problem and happy help at any request.
Matt and his team of experienced mortgage brokers were able to secure us speedy finance for a small development project without any hassles. Great communication and customer service. Looking forward to many more deals.
Thank you for doing an amazing job from an amazing bunch of people! Keep up the great work!!
Rossco, The Gold Coast
Every single team member from the Savings Centre helped us along the way. The entire process was seamless. I would recommend everyone use (or change and start using) The Savings Centre team because they really were the glue that kept our property deal together, when others could not.
Matt Jones, The Sunshine Coast
Love the way you guys work as a team, servicing clients with big picture methodology coupled with a bucketload of integrity… Legends
It is a real pleasure working with these guys, great attitude, very helpful and friendly service. There was many a time I was overwhelmed with all the paper work but they helped me get through it and ensured I understood the structure they had put in place based on my requirements. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work.
The team at The Savings Centre have been a great addition to my property team as I enter my property journey. They have helped my partner and I secure a loan for our first home, helped me get finance for 2 additional investment properties, and helped me to access equity in an existing investment property. They are always easy to get in touch with, and have a network of reliable professionals who I have used throughout the settlement processes.
We have had a very positive experience with The Savings Centre and cannot recommend their services highly enough. Matt and his team are trustworthy, reliable and extremely friendly and we have been exceptionally impressed with the service provided on every occasion so far. Their knowledge, experience and commitment to their clients is such that we will continue to use and have no hesitation in recommending The Savings Centre to all we know.
The team were professional, timely in response and proactive – great customer service.
