    Business Loan
    I engaged Mark Caldwell's services as a Business Finance Broker to add expert resource to pull together a funding proposal to our bank. The Bank were very supportive of his involvement. Mark's ability to understand our business case, invest time in our proposal, along with present information with the banks credit criteria in mind, meant we obtained the right outcome for our business in a timely manner. What he brought to the table for us was impartial advice and high level of trust; a wealth of banking experience; and a desire to see us succeed.
  • Alex Sott

    Mark helped us re-finance and we couldn't have done it by ourselves. We had a really complicated mortgage to swap and he sorted all the details and got us an amazing deal with a great bank. We are so appreciative of all the help he gave us and would 100% recommend him and use him again. Thanks Mark!
