Testimonials

  • Andrei & Vera

    My wife and I were in a very tight situation. We needed to purchase a property before the end of 2017 as we were not New Zealand residents yet. After trying unsuccessfully with a couple of banks to get a mortgage on our own, we came across Craig Pope Mortgages, and he managed to pull off nothing short of a miracle. We got our first step on the property ladder, and I am sure this would not have been possible without Craig and his team. As this was the first time we purchased any property, Craig was very patient and responsive to all our inquiries which I can imagine at some points might have been too much. I'd just like to take this opportunity to once again thank Craig for coming through for us, and I would encourage anyone who thinks they're not going to be able to get a mortgage, to just give Craig a call!

    When I talk with Craig he uses phrases like 'we' rather than 'you'. He makes me feel that he genuinely cares about obtaining a good outcome for me, and his communication is fantastic. I always know exactly how things are progressing and what the likely outcomes will be. Craig is by far the best mortgage broker I have ever used and I recommend him to friends and family whenever I have the opportunity
  • Matthew & Jamie

    Craig was totally onto things. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help us buy our first home. We would highly recommend him, he removed a lot of the stress from the process.
  • Tim & Hazel

    We found Craig to be honest, reliable with the information he gave us, but above all he was/is an excellent communicator. Always available for a chat and returned phone calls.
