"Marie Donovan was in an Adviser role prior to establishing an Adviser business with Loan Market. For the last 11 years, I was privileged to have her as an Adviser. Marie is totally on top of her game, thoroughly professional, always helpful, positive, and solution-oriented and focused, responsive, and , importantly ,a joy and pleasure to deal with. I have no doubt that Marie will bring these attributes and her integrity to Loan Market and can and do unhesitatingly recommend her."
"Marie has provided us with outstanding expert guidance and help in all aspects of borrowing . Marie completely took the stress out of borrowing and we always knew that she would respond to any of our queries and calls as if we were the only people she was working with. We have no doubt Marie will bring the same level of professionalism and expertise in her new role as a Mortgage Broker and would recommend her at the highest level to anyone looking for the best in their business."

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%.
