Desiree joined Mellor Olsson in 2006. She holds a Certificate III in Financial Services and an Advanced Diploma in Conveyancing.
Working as a conveyancer for several years in all areas of land transfers, including owning her own successful conveyancing company that specialised in business and land settlements, has given Desiree a complete working knowledge of the process of property transfers and securities in South Australia.
Desiree has specific experience in mortgage production, security documentation and settlements due to her previous banking career of over 14 years. This included preparing loan documents that cover the entire process from approval through to the completion for loans in all states as well as complex loans (e.g. Company Titles, Trusts and Cross State Securities).\
This extensive experience led to Desiree being involved in training teams for the initiation/application of the First Home Owner Grant when it was first introduced by the Federal Government.
She is a member of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers and the Law Society of South Australia.
