She was offered the opportunity to move back home and was promoted to Bank Manager at Bairnsdale Branch. She managed the CBA Bairnsdale and Orbost for six years and then decided to take the plunge and start her own business doing what she loves, helping people with the biggest financial decisions in their life that majority of times the banks make harder than they need to be.

With over 15 years experience in the banking industry, Jaime prides herself on thorough customer service and the repeat business she receives is the evidence that she does more than what she promises. Jaime is committed to ensuring her clients are kept in the loop with every step of their application. Jaime works hard for each and every deal and loves nothing more than when she gets a deal across the line that others or banks have said are not possible.

Steph D'Arcy – Mortgage Broker


Steph started her career in Banking in 2015 with a major bank as a Business Banking Associate, then progressed to a Business Banking Manager. In this role Steph was exposed to high volume of commercial and small business lending. Her latter years at the bank was spent specializing in dealing with brokers and supporting their clients journey over the bank so she only knows too well the roadblocks that we all come up against. This is where she met Jaime and after joking (kind of!) with Jaime for several years about joining the GFS team, she made the leap in April 2024. Steph loves to help all clients but certainly has a passion for small business clients. Steph thrives on ‘winning’ and making the process of finance as easy as possible for the client. Steph has recently moved to Warragul and this see’s GFS expand further throughout Gippsland.

When she is not crunching numbers and getting loans approved, you will mostly likely find Steph at the dog park with her 2 Great Danes, or sipping on a glass of champagne with her friends and family.

Her everyday consists of supporting our clients and the team with everything from incoming phone calls to anything settlement related; bank discharges, loan contracts, insurances, liaising with banks and conveyancers plus everything in between! Tayla has come from a very client/customer focussed background; she prides herself on her communication as well as the quality of her work. Tayla is very thorough in what she does and understands how important it is to make this process as seamless as possible for you. Nothing is too hard, or no question is too silly when it comes to supporting our clients!

When Tayla is not busy organising settlements at work, she is twice as busy running around after her little boy Jameson & spending quality time with her family and partner Tim.
