Engaging me as your mortgage broker is not just about getting a home loan. It's also about repaying your home loan. I will help you through the process of buying a property and getting a mortgage, but also keep in regular contact with you, inform you of changes in the mortgage market and ensure your mortgage is always structured for your personal situation. Having me on your side to help structure your loan will save you thousands of dollars.
Being part of the excitement of when first home buyers become home-owners is one of the most rewarding parts of my job as a Mortgage Adviser.
Buying your first home is an exciting experience, but can be stressful and confusing on your own, so I will guide you through each step to understand the process and ensure your home loan is suited for your situation.
"I'll always be grateful to you for stepping in and finding a solution for me so quickly. Thank you so much" Irene "Zane was pivotal in the process of purchasing our new home. Right from the start he was exceptionally helpful in working through all the steps involved. He provided us with solid advice, useful property reports and assistance in dealing with the banks to ensure we made the right decisions and settled with ease. If your in the market for a new home - We highly recommend Zane" Lauren & Ollie "When we met Zane we had already been turned down by two other brokers and my own bank home loan specialist. They all said we have too much to solve before we could buy a property and we should just withdraw the offer we had put in the house (offer that already had been accepted). Zane's approach was completely different - he heard our case and what we still had to do; proof of income from contracts, money for deposit still overseas etc and worse, less than 2 weeks to meet the finance condition. All I can say is, we got the house. In just over a month, we went from offer to settlement. In less than 2 weeks we went from "give up, you cant do it" to all the conditions met, with time to spare. All because my solicitor told me - before you give up, call Zane! We are really happy and really, really grateful to his help during the whole process. I already gave Zane's contact details to everyone I know who is looking to buy. He is definitely the best. We are really grateful for your help" Ronaldo Santana "Zane has been a breath of fresh air during what was a long and arduous process of finding a suitable property to purchase in Auckland. His knowledge is second to none and the effort he puts in to ensure you are getting the best deal and service is exceptional. The evening before an auction the following morning, I found the house I wanted to buy. There was a major problem getting the finance approved without conditions in time to buy. He managed to scramble that night and early the next morning and got me approved unconditionally and I went on to win the auction with his guidance, without risk my deposit. Such a massive effort of which I am so grateful!! I highly recommend his services for anyone looking for a motivated professional mortgage adviser/broker to work in his clients best interest" Mike Morpeth "We just want to say a HUGE thank yo u to Zane! He helped us to buy our first home which proved to have a few hurdles when it came to having finance approved but he pulled a few strings and got the green light for us. It was such a great experience to have someone so knowledgeable to help us newbies on to the property ladder! We will be recommending Zane to everyone in the future". Thanks again Ron & Larnie "We finally did it! Zane made the whole process easier than we expected. We were informed from start to finish even while he was away overseas getting married. This is a huge bonus to Zane and his work ethics. We have no hesitation to highly recommend him to any other person". Thanks again Rich & Barbs "When our old lender would not meet the market with their interest rates at the time of refinance, we reached out to Zane and have never looked back. Zane promised to do better then the "special rates" being offered and over-delivered with what he secured for us. Without hesitation, we would recommend Zane for his professionalism, industry knowledge and ability to deliver a market leading deal. Thanks again, Zane!" Colin & Stephanie Dryland "Thank you so much for all your help and assistance through this, you made the whole process much easier than I had expected". Megan "Zane was very professional, always replying to our emails very fast. He was always happy to suggest our best options". "Fast, easy to talk to, listened to my needs, no fuss, got a good deal." "The refinance happened with very little input from us, which was just as well because I've been flat tack. Appreciate everything! Just wanted to give you a quick thanks while I've got the chance. I'll touch base properly soon. Cheers." Colin "Zane is a very professional man that will always give the best advice. His level of communication was spot on, we always were informed of what was happening regarding the loan application, potential homes to buy (advantages & disadvantages) etc. Zane is always up to date of what is happening in the market, he makes you fee comfortable at all time, he did not rush us at all. Zane will definitely be our go to person from now on in regards of property investment, loans etc. We will always recommend Zane to our friends". Monica & Juan Tips
Don't stretch yourself too far. Just because you have the capacity to borrow a lot of money, it isn't always a good idea to do so. Having a loan that is easy to manage will save you a lot of stress and money in the long term. Plan for the future. Look at your life and major events that you can
foresee in your future and structure your mortgage around these events. Community
