Why choose us as your mortgage broker?
We want to represent the very best of what it means to be a mortgage broker: delivering a high level of service and tailoring home loan solutions that make a difference to the lives of our clients.
We get tough loans approved
Our expertise is in helping customers who have unusual circumstances, even those that have been knocked back by a bank in the past. Where other brokers have failed, we regularly get an approval from a reputable lender.
Get the right home loan for your needs
We take a holistic approach when assessing your financial situation and long-term goals to ensure that you get a home loan that’s right for you.
Get incredible interest rates
Because of the relationships we have with our panel of lenders, we’re able to negotiate a sharp interest rate based on the strength of your application.
Fast approval, easy process
We can help you navigate the often complex pre-approval and application process, helping you to achieve your dream of owning a home much easier and in much less time.
Our customers love us
We have hundreds of love letters and positive customer reviews on our website, Facebook , Google and Product Review.
Our outstanding achievements
We’re the winner of multiple industry and consumer awards including best customer service and brokerage of the year.
You can trust us
In a crowded market, it’s hard to know who you can trust. As experts, we regularly provide commentary to Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, news.com.au, The Adviser and Australian Broker.
We aren’t owned by a bank
Our expert mortgage brokers will provide you with down-to-earth home loan advice and as a credit licence holder we’re required by Australian law to give you a loan that’s suitable for you needs.
Access to more lenders
We deal with the major banks as well as a number of building societies, credit unions and specialised lenders that offer discounted rates and have flexible credit policies that other brokers have never heard of.
We can help you qualify for a home loan to buy property anywhere in Australia.
Free upfront valuations and credit reports
We can give you a pretty good indication of how much the bank will allow you to borrow and how to overcome the barriers to home loan approval.
We’re members of the FBAA and AFCA
The Finance Brokers Association of Australia (FBAA) upholds professional standards in the mortgage broking industry while our membership with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) protects you as a consumer.
We act in your best interests
You can rest easy knowing that we are legally required to act in your best interests under Best Interests Duty; whereas a lender has no legal obligation to do so.
We are loan approval experts
We specialise in helping people with complex financial situations and those who do not meet standard lending policies. Our company mission is to help people who are being let down by the Australian banking system.
We know which lenders can help and which ones can not.
Unlike most mortgage brokers who are just salesmen, we are experts in the lending guidelines used by the major banks and other lenders.
We deal with a wide variety of lenders and know their policies back to front, as well as the hidden catches and potential problems you might face.
We have an extensive in-house credit assessment process which we complete before applying with any bank or lender.
Most of our mortgage brokers have worked in the credit department of a lender approving and declining loan applications, so we can talk their language and build a case to get your loan approved!
Our services are completely free in most cases
Our services are completely free for most home and investment loans. We will only charge a brokerage fee for certain types of short term loans, small loans, some types of commercial or trust finance and if you refinance, or in any way exit, your home loan within the first two years.!
We get paid by the lender for doing the work that would otherwise be done by a bank manager, so you pay the same rate as if you went to the lender directly.!
However, unlike a bank, we can help you choose from a wide variety of lenders and get the best option for your needs from our panel of over 30 lenders.!
Are you out in the bush? Interstate? Overseas? To us, it doesn’t matter! We can deal with anyone who is buying or refinancing a property in Australia.
Our business is streamlined to enable us to efficiently deal with your application by mail, phone, fax or email.
We commonly deal with applicants from all states of Australia, in particular NSW, VIC, QLD and the ACT.
Home loans from 50+ lenders
Did you know that some larger mortgage broking companies are part owned by one of the banks?
We are privately owned and can arrange loans with the four major banks as well as several reputable non-bank lenders.
Why should I use a mortgage broker if I can go with a bank?
Unlike your bank, we have more than 50 different lenders to choose from with a range of different policies so you can be confident about getting your home loan approved and not damaging your credit file.
Following up on the progress of your loan can be stressful and time consuming. That’s why we deal with the banks so that you don’t have to. We have efficient systems in place to track your loan and provide you with timely updates.
Our mortgage brokers have a much higher level of training and experience than bank lenders, many of them with years of experience in the mortgage industry.
Our outstanding reputation and achievements
We have built a reputation on being well-organised, well-trained and having expertise that is second-to-none.

Free valuations and credit reports
We can order free up front valuations with more than six lenders. This means that we know what the bank thinks your property is worth before applying with them.
By ordering a valuation before you apply for as home loan it ensures that your credit file isn’t damaged by having too many enquiries.
We can also provide you with a free copy of your credit file so that you know where you stand with the banks.
We take a holistic approach
The mortgage industry is a minefield of complex policy catches. This is why we make sure that we take your full situation into account and provide a complete solution.
A lender might approve a loan for someone to buy land but then not approve the loan to build a house on it!
Our loan assessment process is thorough. We look at your needs now and in the future and make sure that we are getting you the best loan for your needs.
What if you don’t qualify right now? We will help you get to the stage where loan approval won’t be a problem with our prepare to buy program.
We don’t forget about you once your home loan is advanced either! We offer exceptional ongoing customer care by conducting annual reviews on your home loan and we will be there to assist you for the life of your loan.
