Testimonials

I recently refinanced with Doug who assisted me with finding the best product and set up to suit my needs. He is a fantastic communicator who kept me up to date with progress and assisted trouble shooting when needed. As a customer and also an experienced banker with Home loans products, I was very satisfied with Doug's service- he is knowledgeable, resourceful and organised. I recommend him to anyone looking for a new Home Loan.

Katie Nurse, Head of Campus Administration & Operations at Caulfield Grammar School. LinkedIn and Facebook Review, Jan 2016.

These are the reasons you should use Doug as your mortgage broker based on my experience: - he is resolutely reliable in timing and follow up - he does what he says he will do, without exception - he seeks to understand what you want and finds the solution - the money he saved me covered the costs of changing my mortgage in 7 weeks! I'm now saving thousands of dollars every month. Really. On top of all this, he's a great bloke. Just do it.

Doug’s advice has been invaluable. As the reluctant household “chief financial officer,” I recently contacted him to break our fixed-rate home loan, refinance and apply for a personal loan to fund a new business venture. He suggested a split on our existing loan, rather than re-mortgage. His sound advice, which was supported by our accountant, saved us breakage fees, considerable interest and time. As soon as our fixed-rate period has expired, I will be contacting him again for a health check on all our loans.

I found Doug to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable about mortgage lending and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking at new loans or looking to review their current situation. He took the time to fully understand my specific circumstances and recommended loan products to suit me. Nice work Doug!
