He was commuting more than 90 minutes each way to work, working 12-hour shifts in the mining industry, all while trying to keep up with the property market.
Dario said he received a call from Cody’s mother, a long-time customer of his, asking if he could reach out to Cody to talk about his challenges and help get him back on track.
“We talked and I told him things happen for a reason, and I gave him my big brother shoulder and I listened,” Dario said. “I told him I would be there with him and encouraged him that the next house could be the one if we just worked together.”
Finally in January 2022, Cody found his house, an offer was made and accepted, and even though there were a few hiccups and delays, Dario kept his word and assisted all the way through to settlement in April.
“I think if Dario didn’t help me out so much, if I didn’t have him backing me, I don’t think I would have been in a house,” Cody said. Dario said it came down to the core values of Beyond Bank, which was all about building relationships and supporting customers. “When we look at changing lives at Beyond Bank, what we are really doing is old-fashioned relationship banking,” he said.
