Was referred to Chris from friends. Chris was very professional, prompt and knowledgeable and still maintained financial guidelines and procedures. Chris eased the stress of buying a new home. Chris kept continual contact throughout the process too. Unlike the real estate. I never had to all Chris anything, he always answered any thought I had before they even became a question.
I have recommended Chris to others already, on several occasions and will continue too.

Chris was extremely helpful and always prompt in getting things done. After previously being told no by another mortgage broker who didn't take the time to discuss our actual options, Chris asked lots of questions and discussed with us the best way to do things to achieve our goals. It was fantastic to see his energy and enthusiasm. We highly recommend Chris and the Smartline team.

Chris is a pleasure to do business with. Friendly and Professional. Always feels like he has my best interest at heart.

12 November 2018  


Chris Iannello worked TIRELESSLY to assist us with establishing a loan with the Comm bank. My own personal circumstances made Chris' job that much harder. This deal was approximately seven months in the making, but he fought for us, got it through and saved us hundreds of dollars per month on loan repayments by getting us a MUCH better rate. Chris was amazing to deal with and kept us up to date every step of the way. Chris' persistence and caring for his clients is what makes him a stand out broker. I have a career in real estate, have already referred two people to Chris and will continue to do so.

Chris Iannello was fantastic! I went through three different brokers before Chris, none of whome would give me the time of day, simply saying they couldn't do it. Chris on the other hand did everything he could, exploring every possible avenue finding us a home loan. If it wasn't for Chris I would still be stuck in the rental trap.

01 May 2012  


Thankyou for providing us with good old fashioned service Chris. You made the whole process very easy for us.

14 March 2012  


Chris Iannello offers a refreshingly friendly and personal, yet professional, service - he makes himself available to assist with any concerns that arise for us; he also takes it upon himself to keep an eye on our mortgage and advise us when a better option becomes available. We feel very confident having Chris as our adviser. Kerryann and Dave, BUNBURY.

Chris was fantastic, he answered all my questions and gave me very good advice. He spoke in plain and simple terms so I could understand exactly what was going on with the whole process of getting a mortgage from start to finish. He contacts me regularly via smart line to check to see if I need any advice and lets me know about interest rate changes immediately, and how it will affect my mortgage payments.
