About Alastair Watson


Finance is a complicated web with heaps options, lots of hurdles, plenty of detail, stress & pressure to deliver on time frames. Our aim is to take care of all the detail (our fun stuff) so you can focus on your goals (your fun stuff). From start to finish we’ll make sure to remove the risk, manage time frames, provide recommendations & advice and make sure to get you the best possible deal from the right lender.

Our ambition is to become your lifelong bank manager. We continue to track fixed rate rollovers, offer continuous advice as your property journey evolves and cover all basis be it homes, investments and even business lending.

Everything. I’m keen to help any situation and have experience with all the different stages of the borrowing cycle from First Home Buyers to downsizers and retirees, up/down sizers, investors to business owners.

We have access to more lenders than any other Mortgage Broker in NZ which includes Kiwibank. Every lender suits your situation better than the rest, that’s where we go straight to the best recommendation so you can avoid approaching multiple banks yourself. They all differ in products, policy and pricing so access to multiple lenders is very important.

    Home Loan
    "Alastair provided exceptional service in arranging our mortgage. From the outset he made what was a busy time for us so much less stressful. We felt well informed and supported through every step of the process, Alastair went over and above what I would expect from a mortgage broker, he put us in touch with agents, spoke with councils and made sure the property we were purchasing was a good investment. He really had our best interests at heart. What I valued most was that Alastair was accessible whenever we needed anything, and also managed to meet some pretty tight deadlines! I would gladly recommend his service to other home buyers!"
