Meet Janet Harris – Director of Point Home Loans

Janet Harris has been a mortgage broker and adviser since January 2007 and she formed her own company, Point Home Loans in April 2012.

As you will tell from her accent, Janet was born in London, England. But what surprises most people is that she moved to New Zealand with her parents and brother as long ago as 1977 – surely time to have lost that accent by now?

The family home was in Long Bay at the top of the North Shore, long before that area became fashionable – Janet kept her pony in a craggy cliff top paddock, which is now Gilbert Place and full of million dollar + homes! – and she went to school at Westlake Girls in Takapuna.

After an early career in fashion design and pattern cutting, and then a few years of travelling, Janet decided to become an accountant. This is not so much of a dramatic change in career when you consider that both require great attention to detail and precision!

Janet worked mostly in the fashion industry as a company accountant, before deciding on another career adjustment – not as big a change this time – to become a mortgage broker. She still uses her skills in analysing problems, finding solutions, being generally detailed and precise to meet strict deadlines, but she also gets to talk to people and really help them, too!

Janet loves to help people buy a house – whether a first home, next step as the family is growing, investment property or just another house – it’s an honour for her to be part of peoples’ biggest financial decision and to help them with advice that takes the hassle out of the whole process for them.

You won’t be just a number with Janet, she will give you genuine and individual advice on all aspects of the home buying process, with prompt and efficient service!
