David had great knowledge of the mortgage market. Where his experience was especially appreciated was with the different processes the banks take in assessing loans and the paperwork required. We would not hesitate to work with David again.

David was amazing to work with and took so much stress out of the whole process, particularly as a first home buyer. I couldn’t recommend David highly enough and would never dream of buying without his help!

David was extremely helpful through the process of obtaining my first home loan. He was very thorough, which lead to a smooth settlement. At all times I was kept up to date with my loans progress and things were explained in an easy to understand manner. I would have no qualms recommending David to my family and friends.

19 February 2020  


We are very happy with David’s service. He is experienced, thorough and responsive to our queries. Would definitely recommend him to our friends.

16 February 2020  


Would be helpful if there was an interactive spreadsheet to understand the calculations behind the loan proposals would be helpful so I can also play around with these amounts. For example if a loan proposal was done for amounts of $500 and $550, but I wanted to know how much the figures would be for a specific number like $535 I'd have to email the broker to re-run the numbers and send me a new update rather than just plug it in myself.

The information provided highlighted the options & assisted in making the decision to change so much easier.

David was just fantastic; his help in navigating through an unfamiliar and daunting process was invaluable.

12 February 2017  


David did a fantastic job for us and set us up with an ideal loan structure with our lender. His understanding of the finance industry and possible arrangements for us was first class.

09 January 2017  


David is very experienced and knowledgeable and easy to discuss the situation with and I would highly recommend David.

11 November 2016  


David went above and beyond what we expected to help sort out our refinancing and construction loan.

23 September 2016  


Took all the stress our of getting a home loan. David would always help out with queries or running some new numbers. Even helped get a last minute better deal.

01 September 2016  


David was great throughout the process from start to finish. As someone who had never bought before, David made things really relaxed and easy to understand and I will have no hesitations in recommending him to friends and family

27 June 2016  


This was not a routine purchase; my wife and I live in Canberra, David lives in Melbourne and the property purchase was in Brisbane. In addition, there were two other properties that had to be valued by the bank and the purchase was conducted over Christmas when many enitities operate with reduced staff. Despite this complexity, once again David worked with a great sense of purpose, his attention to our needs was incredibly prompt and he communicates (by phone and email) with great clarity. He is direct without being forceful or pushy and I expect we were able to achieve timely and relatively stress-free results because of David\'s ability to influence other stakeholders involved in the purchase. Once again we are very grateful for David\'s support.

10 February 2016  


The professionalism, depth of knowledge and timely service. I also wish to express my gratitude for David\'s help and will definitely recommend David to family and friends.

08 February 2016  


We found David to be very helpful and knowledgeable. He assisted us to understand home loan structures and the options that were available to us. It was clear to us that he was an expert and he was very professional in his dealings with us. He helped to make the entire home purchasing process seamless.

If it were possible, I would rate David 20 out of 10. I will definitely be recommending David to my family, friends and any acquaintance in between!

05 April 2014  


David was amazing. He was always available to discuss issues and was always honest with us. He made the whole experience very easy and enjoyable for us!

13 February 2014  


David had provided a loan for my wife and I in the past and we had no hesitation in seeking David's services a second time around. Once again he did a great job, again it was an interstate purchase (David is in Melbourne, we are in Canberra and the purchase was in Perth) but he managed things extremely well. This was a notable achievement not only due to the distances involved but the purchase involved a leaseback to the seller (Defence Housing Australia) but David was able to recognise the 'intracacies' of the arrangement and worked with the Settlement Agent to ensure a seamless process.

06 December 2013  


We hit some serious and unforseen set backs when we initally tried to buy a house, David was there for us through all of this time, not only helping us fix the situation, but was also honest and open about what options we had available to us. He helped us finally purchase our first home in March by working with us to find a lender that suited our needs.

17 June 2013  


David is a pleasure to deal with, and my wife and I would not even contemplate using any other adviser. Cheers Alan

David was fantastic to work with. Being first home buyers, we needed assistance in not only securing our home loan, but also a thorough introduction into all the different aspects of lending, from simply setting up accounts to handling all the difficult negotiations involved in an "off the plan" purchase. David achieved this. We highly recommend David to prospective Smartline customers.

I wish to highlight that, despite not have a functional laptop to start with, David has been providing me with very helpful and timely advices. As well, David played an important role in the smooth settlement of my first home (which could have been easily done pear-shaped otherwise). His professionalism outpaces any other mortgage advisers that I have encountered in the past. I really appreciate his help and would certainly recommend him to family and friends.

04 May 2012  


Over all David Boylan was great - he was more than happy to help us with our loan inquiries and was very patient with us. I've already referred him to a few of my friends, as they are in the starting process of looking for houses to buy.

Positive - for me it was my broker, David truly is an asset to your company and his knowledge, experience and perseverence (without pushiness) should be role-modeled. Suggestion for Improvement- I had not heard of Smartline, but was referred by a colleague. If it hadn't have been for David's approach as outlined below, I probably would not have used your company.... very glad I did though!

07 March 2011  


David is fantastically helpful and makes getting a loan very easy, I have now had 4 loans via David and will always use him and recommend him to friends

It is clear that David has extensive experience in the industry. He provided regular contact, keeping us fully informed as to where the loan application stood and what to expect as we walked through the process. When there was conflicting advice/information between the Agent, the conveyancing company and what David was advising, it was David who was always right.
