Time is our most precious commodity these days. As an experienced mortgage adviser, I build trusted relationships that save your valuable time. I can broker achievable solutions that work best for clients whether with an existing bank or another lender. I research the best mortgage terms that address the unique requirements of lending. Being prepared for the milestones saves you stress in the long run so talking to me well before you’re ready, makes logical sense. When the moment arrives to finance a home, you can feel secure knowing I’m already there on your timeline.
AND I do all the negotiating with the bank’s on your behalf.

Borrowing to buy a home or business is a big step so it is important to employ someone who has walked in your shoes to carry out the task. My significant background and expertise in all facets of banking, finance, farming, business ownership, and sales management equips me well to guide you on your own journey. I do the leg-work for you and my services are at no cost to you*.
*Very occasionally in unusual circumstances there might an upfront fee, but I’ll let you know well ahead of time.

First Home Buyers

Buying your first home is very exciting. It can also be time-consuming and overwhelming as it’s probably the biggest financial commitment you’ll make in your life. I will guide you through the various mortgage options to locate the best solution. I will talk you through Kiwisaver, Home Start Grants, guarantors, gifts, pre-approvals and deposits as part of your home loan structure. I can talk to your bank for you, or another bank and then translate the alternatives to ensure we’re comparing “apples with apples”. And again – I do the presenting and negotiating for you.

Home Loans & Refinancing & Top-Up

Nothing gives me a bigger buzz than assisting with the securing of finance to take your home loan needs to the next level. Many of my clients have a change in their living circumstances and need to upgrade, downsize or relocate. Perhaps they need extra funds to add onto an existing home for a growing family, provide a rental income stream, to improve their lifestyle, or to deal to those unexpected curve balls life sometimes throws our way. Whatever the financing/refinancing reason, I’m able to take away the guesswork and easily deal to the financial aspect getting you where you want to be.
