"We first met Laurie in December 2010 after he was highly recommended to us by our Real Estate Buyers Agent. Amanda and I both have full time professional roles, earn above average incomes, pay our bills on time and have a clean credit record. However, we sat just outside of our bank of 5 years credit criteria for some new properties we wanted to purchase. To say this was frustrating would be an understatement, but this is the new age of risk adverse consumer lending. Cue our meeting with Laurie. We outlined our financial position with him, explained what we were hoping to achieve and after a brief period of discussion he agreed to source finance on our behalf. After a very short time frame of a few days only, Laurie
presented us not one, but two letters of offer from banks he had approached. This was an informative, insightful but most importantly stress free process for us and with a more than satisfactory outcome. If you are looking for an honest, upfront and frank Mortgage Broker who has a “no BS” approach and will work hard for you the customer, then Laurie Warren is a must talk to man. He won’t make false promises, he won’t say something if he doesn’t mean it and he will go the extra mile to deliver the best possible result. Importantly, he is pro-active, communicative and acts in a timely manner during a process that is typically tense and high pressure for the Home Buyer. These are traits that made our experience virtually pain free. We would have not the slightest hesitation in utilising Laurie’s knowledge and skill set in Home Lending finance in the future."
Cliff and Amanda Carr
" Very good in all aspects, great communication, dedication and knowledge. Would recommend highly to everyone."
