It's been a massive 6 months for us.  After months of planning we've finally opened "Mortgage Choice Financial Planning" which is already proving popular with clients.  I can promise you it's well worth sitting down with Adam for a free, no obligation chat to see what he can do for you.  You'd be amazed and excited at the possibilities. This is an exciting time for us and we can see big things coming for MCFP Gymea.

We've also relocated to our new office at 105 Gymea Bay Rd, Gymea after a 6 month process.  Even with meticulous planning this was a bigger task than I would have thought.  I'm exhausted!  We had our Grand Opening last night which went really well and draws a line in the sand - this is where we can now forget about colour palletes and swatches and get on with the job at hand.

Finally, interest rates have started to drop which is great news for all home buyers.  You may have seen Yours Truly on Channel 10 News live at 2:30pm on the first Tuesday of every month (and then played throughout the day and night - keep an eye out for it).  I'm now giving economic updates on why the Reserve Bank made the decision they did on live national TV! Live TV is a bizzare experience - the news desk is literally in the middle of a crowded floor of Ch10 office workers.  It's not in a pivate studio.  And if that doesn't make you feel like a fish out of water, imagine doing it with Lachlan Murdoch standing on the stairs watching you!  It's a great life experience and I'm thankful for being given the opportunity to do it.

There are a growing number of economists who believe the Resver Bank will cut rates by at least one more 0.25% by the end of the year.  This will be in an effort to increase consumer spending.  Retailers are still hurting and the only solution is get people spending again.  Rates could drop even lower should the Aussie dollar stay high, although that has now dropped to an 11 month low.  

As always, please feel free to contact me direct on 02 9525 4544 or via email if you have any questions at all or if there is anything at all I can do for you.
