"We first utilized the services of Yew Kong at Mortgage Choice in July 2004 for a pre-approval. We eventually bought a property in September 2004 and the pre-approval was activated with military precision. One week prior to settlement Yew Kong's determination and efficiency was put to the test, as the selected bank failed to deliver the correct documents in time for my husband to sign before proceeding overseas for a business assignment. Once the correct documents were obtained, Yew Kong ran around on a few trips to get my signature and then arranged for the documents to be delivered out to Singapore to hasten the process for a smooth settlement. He went beyond the call of duty and provided this extra service with a smile. Though I was anxious about the settlement, we were confident that Yew Kong would deliver his promises about extraordinary service. We are happy to say that settlement went ahead as scheduled without any hiccups.We were very impressed with Yew Kong's professionalism, thoroughness in explaining the products and features of the loans, his calm and collected manner when under pressure and his unflinching motivation to provide an excellent service and be responsible for the only acceptable outcome-a smooth and hassle free settlement. We totally trust and respect his advice we have no hesitation to recommend his impeccable services to anyone.

Yours sincerely,

Guido Lilio and Michelle Eime."

"To Whom It May Concern

Ten years ago, I would not have believed that I would be on the verge of buying my third property before I reached the age of 35. I work with the Postal Services, earning a modest income. No, I did not strike the Tattslotto, if that?s what you think!

I have to thank my Accountant for his advice to look at an investment property back in 2000. This first modest property has helped me to fund my second property. It was my good fortune to meet Yew-Kong Lye who advised me on how to structure my loan with the equity from my first property to buy my second property. The repayments were paid from the rental income and I did not have to dip into my own pocket for any of the repayments. Now, four years later, I?m ready to invest in my third piece of property.

Not only did Yew Kong give me good advice on how to structure my loan to get the best mileage out of my first investment property, he saved me a lot of time as well. Dealing with Yew-Kong was a pleasant experience. He took control of the loan application and dealt with the lender removing all the stress of seeing the loan through the different processes involved from the submission till settlement from me. That is why I have come to him again to help me with my loan application for my third piece of property. I have no qualms about recommending him to all my friends.

Yours sincerely

"To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about the help I have received Your focus was getting me a competitive home loan that suited my requirements and you have far exceeded that. You have probably saved me nearly $30,000 in interest over the 30 years life of the loan if I had a loan that was a quarter of one percent worst off. You explained everything clearly and you were very thorough in your processes and kept me informed along the way and never failed to return my calls in a timely manner. Your professionalism is second to none and you completely took charge of the whole process without me having to stress about things. The best part was how you encouraged me to apply for the First Home Buyer additional grant when I thought I did not qualify. I was $18,000 richer.
Again I thank you for the excellent home lending advice and assistance you provided me when getting me into my first home. You ensured that I received very competitive interest rates and provided me with fantastic continual, prompt personal service. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.

"You may remember that you had helped me previously with home loan advice.

Unfortunately, there were various reasons why I ultimately chose not to follow through with your advice on the last occasion we met. I recall that the reasons for this were unfortunate and not of your direct making.

I was struck at that time, however, by the fact that you still followed through on your undertakings, even though I made it clear that I would not be taking up the loan that you had arranged because of my disappointment. The fact that you followed through on your actions showed high professionalism on your part, and I have never forgotten that gesture.

So, if you are willing to do so, I would like to again make use of your expertise.

"Thanks Yew Kong, We are very happy with your services and relieved that the process has come off without a hitch!
After our initial stress of being with a different mortgage broker who dropped the ball, we were very worried that we wouldn't even get our finance together in time. It was such a relief when we engaged your services and you assured us that we would be fine and walked us through the process of applying for loans - and also structuring it in such a way that our resulting finance will benefit us for more than just this investment property.
Thanks for your comprehensive and professional service and assistance

I found my recent dealings with Yew Kong Lye at Mortgage Choice Essendon to be professional and the advice received extremely helpful.

I had previously secured the services of Yew Kong when obtaining a mortgage in 2001 and upon my recent property purchase sought his expert advice again. After pre-approval, Yew Kong kept me informed with market information via his on-line newsletters. Upon purchase of my new home he was able to progress every stage of the process with my solicitor and the financial institution with great efficiency and in a timely manner.

The settlement and financing of my home was completed within a very tight timeframe (20 days) to my complete satisfaction.

I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Yew Kong.

"4 years ago, we were trying to save enough money to purchase our first home. We did not think we would be able to take this huge step in life; however Yew Kong Lye showed us ways of achieving the goals required to own our first home.
With Yew’s help we were able to purchase our first home and we moved into our fantastic home in January 2013.
2 years later Yew Kong Lye has helped us re-finance our home loan which in turn will help us save an extra $2000 every month which in turn will be approximately $24000 a year, something we have been struggling to do for a very long time.
We can’t wait to see what our future brings, thanks heaps for your continued help!!!

I have known Yew Kong for many years and have been very pleased to have him as our Mortgage Broker. My husband and I have recently commenced some investment plans and Yew Kong was invaluable in helping us get the most appropriate and cost effective loans for our investments as well as ensuring our home mortgage was the most suitable for our needs. At all times he was able to provide a wide range of options for us to consider that helped us to achieve our plans. He also ensured that right up to the very end, he supported us through the process so that things always went smoothly. He is very professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with at all times. I would gladly recommend Yew Kong, and have done so on numerous occasions"

"I had the good fortune of coming across Yew Kong Lye more than 16 years ago now.

I have always found the 'financing' side of life quite complex and problematic. However, Yew Kong has always been able to make this process simple and has consistently found me the best financial products on the market.
Yew Kong was instrumental in me purchasing a property in a suburb that was destined to reap considerable capital return - his general advice has been incredibly helpful and I will be forever grateful for his wisdom and kindness.

Not only has Yew Kong helped me with my mortgages, he has also been great council to me in other aspects of my life. He is selflessly helpful and an inspiration

He is easy to work with and has demonstrated to me a high level of integrity. I have no hesitation in recommending Yew Kong as the broker you can work easily with and can be fully trusted.
