"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."

Let’s talk about LVRs. Did they actually change?
Not exactly. What has changed is the Reserve Bank of NZ’s requirements of trading banks in NZ to abide by mandated rules that had been put in place.
Money is cheap, but is it easy to get?
In what is close to the perfect storm for our business, money is the cheapest it has ever been, but it has also never been harder to access.
To break or not to break, that is the question.
With Interest rates at an all-time low, a lot of people are thinking about breaking their current fixed rate to reset at something lower. This is effectively breaking the contract you have signed with the bank, the benefit on the face of it appears obvious for the borrower – stop paying an old fixed rate above 4% and start paying a new rate of perhaps 2.79%.
