Ash has been fantastic in helping me find the best home loan product out there. He was awesome for me in 2017 when I was first getting into the market, and hes been great again more recently as were purchasing our family home. I highly recommend him and the service he provides, it can be a daunting task, especially for first time buyers, but Ash is great at explaining and setting out the plans. As well as being super accessible via phone and email when needed. Thanks Ash

Ash went above and beyond helping us buy our first home. It was a long journey to get there... approximately 18mths and involving a change in jobs more than once and at the 11th hour when our pre-approval was going to expire. Ash did an outstanding job in helping us and getting a reasonable loan with terms and conditions that met our needs. Highly recommend.

Ash went above and beyond to help me and my family get our first home. But on top, he was always available to explain and often calm us down through the journey. If I could give more stars I would. Ash is the only person you need to help you secure your home.

Ash and his team at Mortgage Choice are responsive, creative and fantastic to deal with.

Ash is an excellent broker. He's efficient, really patient, always composed and up for a challenge.

I cannot recommend him highly enough.

29 June 2021  


Ash is an excellent broker. He's efficient, really patient, always composed and up for a challenge, challenges I threw at him many, many times.

When my settlement day came the bank revealed they made a huge error, entirely their fault. Ash immediately went into damage control and we had the matter resolved within days.
Some call it a miracle, I call it Ash just doing what he does best.

I cannot recommend him enough but I will be and have been to everyone I know.

17 June 2021

01 April 2021  


Ash helped my son with loan application a year ago and I called on him to this year to help me refinance my loan. He was a professional and responded to questions quickly and always kept me informed. His knowledge and expertise was most helpful as I would not have had the time or energy to arrange a refinance. it took the burden off my shoulders knowing that the process, documentation and settlement were all in order. Thanks Ash.

22 March 2021  


I was recommended to Ash through word of mouth.
Ash was an invaluable asset to my home buying journey from our first discussion to the settlement of the property.
From his approachability, ensuring I ticked all the boxes for a mortgage and explaining everything in layman terms, I have felt informed every step of the way.
His availability has been at the forefront of his service and I would highly recommend his services.
Thank you Ash!

I was recommended to Ash by a close friend. If anyone is looking for a professional, personable, patient, knowledgable and reliable broker Ash is the one for you. He patiently walked me through each step of the process, explaining in detail what was required and why. He also answered my never ending questions and managed to get my loan formally approved within a few days, just before Christmas.

I was recommended to Ash and Smartline by my sister and he exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend to anyone else who is looking for a professional, responsive and knowledgeable broker.

Ash from Smartline was amazing. Where all other mortgage brokers failed, Ash rose to the occasion and provided incredible service the whole way through. Such service is almost impossible to come by these days, especially in financial services

02 July 2020  


My advisor was knowledgeable and recommended the best product for my needs. I was always kept informed throughout the process and could speak to my advisor at anytime. The stress was taken out the home loan application process. I highly recommend!

25 February 2020  


Couldn't have improved my experience with Ash - knowledgeable, great communicator and look after our best interests.

28 January 2020  


Why aren't there more stars... Could not recommend Ash more highly. From our initial discussion through to settlement Ash was always responsive, knowledgeable and had our best interest at heart. He asked questions to understand our needs and then delivered what we wanted.
He communicated extremely well through the entire process via email, phone and text (whatever suited us) and always told us what to expect next and recapped what had been recommended and agreed.
In what is a confusing, daunting, drawn out (due to the banks) and stressful process he was by our side. Thanks Ash - you are more than 5 stars in our eyes.

22 January 2020  


Professional, extremely knowledgeable, efficient and kind. We will definitely be working with Smartline Personal Mortgage again and recommending them to friends.

Ash was well versed on the different products and understood what I needed and the best product options. He was friendly throughout, professional and a pleasure to deal with.

05 July 2019  


I can't fault the service Ash provided in any way:

He explained all of the different options available to us (we didn't have a great knowledge of the process we were undertaking- and he really made it easy for us to get our head around everything) and then helped us pick the right one for us. He regularly kept us up to date and was always friendly and responsive when we had more questions.. Even after everything was completed- he checked in on us to see how we were going in the new house and we really got the feeling he cared about us throughout the process.

I would recommend Ash in a heartbeat.

29 June 2019  


Ash is an amazing mortgage broker! Being a first homebuyer Ash was so helpful throughout the process of getting our mortgage, he answered any question we had and would always be available when we called. Ash took the time to explain all of our options to us and found the perfect loan to suit us. I highly recommend Ash to anyone looking for a mortgage broker.

05 June 2019  


Best financial advisor on the planet. By a long way.

15 May 2019  


We had a wonderful experience with Ash. He was very helpful, knowledgeable, proactive and helped us navigate through the loan process step by step. We would (and already have) recommend him to friends and family as he was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

My advisor Ash, went above and beyond any broker I have ever used before. He kept me informed at every key milestone and looked after my interest for the entire process.

My experience with my Adviser was absolutely amazing... My daughter set up contact with him and he kept both my daughter and myself completely informed at all times. he was contactable at all times and never hesitated to go beyond to help us. I would 100% recommend Ash Dalla Lana to any of my friends. In fact I have recently recommended him to my Nephew, who is looking at buying his first home. Personally I could not give Ash enough praise for his absolute professional manner and at the same time allowing me to feel like I really mattered. Something very rare these days in the world of money. Cheers... Carol

Ashley Dalla Lana is the consummate professional to deal with. We went through a long and exhaustive settlement process before receiving finance on our home. Ash was there every step of the way to help us and the process above expectations. It certainly would of been more difficult without Ash's professional support and friendship. Anyone considering financial advice would be hindering themselves without enlisting Ashley's professional knowledge, commitment and support.

Ash was fantastic! Great person to deal with and 'next level' communication from start to finish, making a generally difficult process a breeze. Like most I'm super busy with a full-time job, side business, family commitments and a home reno on the go! Ash made things happen, understood my requirements, slotted into my time pressures and got me an excellent deal. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home loan or refinancing.
