Best in the business! Derek made such a scary/stressful thing for myself and my partner so much easier! We had a poor experience with another broker who just wanted our money but Derek sat down with us and went through literally everything and answered every dumb question we had. Couldn’t recommend Derek more, will always be thankful for him ☺️
I appreciate Derek's ongoing communication via email as it keeps me in touch with market conditions and rates, and it was one of his emails that prompted me to refinance.
I have total trust in Derek, and the high quality of service he provides, going above and beyond my expectations. I always encourage my friends to contact Derek if they are in the market for a new loan or refinance options.
Derek has been my mortgage broker for over 10 years and helped me purchase properties on three seperate occasions. He provides honest and impartial advice, and has always been willing to help me achieve the best possible outcome for my present situation. My best investment by far was finding him to do all the hard work and number crunching. Highly recommended.
Derek helped my husband and I with our first home loan. He helped us with all our queries and made this process so much easier for us. I even got my parents to go through Derek and they love him! I definitely recommend him.
Derek is very helpful and gives you good advice when need. He made the process of buying a property for the first time very manageable. It also became less stressful as he provided guidance every step of the way
Derek provided fantastic service, reliable advice, regular updates, and was extremely helpful.
Awesome personalised service. Derek was available to me every step of the way and had loads of actually useful advice. Derek made purchasing a home for the first time much less daunting than I am sure it could be. Thanks Derek
I am extremely grateful for Derek's friendly & helpful professionalism. He was there every step of the way, often going over & above. Derek's knowledge & experience made me feel at ease during what can be a stressful and time consuming process. I unreservedly recommend Derek. When I buy my next property I will definitely be availing myself of Derek's services. Thanks Derek, I couldn't be happier.
We have just bought our first home & Derek made the process less stressful with his prompt responses & all of his help & support around the clock! We would highly recommend him. Thanks again Derek!
With my settlement, I had a very short time frame to get a home loan approved with a bank. Derek helped me expedite the process working through the weekend to finalise the process. I am very happy with this service.
I was clueless about buying a house in Australia.
Derek helped me at every step starting from the basics.
Derek was thorough and professional. He made sure that the all the required documentation was in place before we went ahead with the application. There were no hassles in getting a loan and the bank did not have to check anything again which meant there was no to and fro happening between the bank, Derek and us.
Apart from that Derek also provided useful tips when it came to buying a house. This was helpful in the setting the dates and the negotiation.
If you are looking for someone who is considerate and meticulous, Derek is the go-to person. 100% recommended.
Derek McLeod was an enormous help when searching lenders for our first mortgage and it gave us huge peace of mind knowing he was helping us. He not only proved to be highly committed but he was also very approachable and kept in touch through the whole process. We bought our house two years ago and he's still helping us by getting us better interest rates. We would highly recommend him and we'll definitely seek his help in our next purchase.
Derek is EXTREMELY knowledgeable, hard-working, professional and friendly. This was our first home and we're so fortunate that we had Derek with us throughout our experience and if we were to do this all over again, we would want no one but Derek as our Mortgage Broker. His passion for sharing his wealth of knowledge is highly commendable and we can not recommend him highly enough. Thanks for making this journey less stressful and teaching us a thing or two along the way- we love our new home!
This is the second time we have gone to Derek at Mortgage Choice, Carindale. He was so helpful and easy to talk to the first time, there was no question of who to see when we needed to renegotiate our mortgage. Both times, Derek found the perfect financial package to suit our needs, explained the pros and cons so that we could make an informed decision and kept us regularly up to date along the way. He took the time to answer our questions at any time of day and on weekends. On a number of occasions I would send an email outside of normal business hours, expecting a reply the next day, only to have Derek call us immediately after the email had been sent. That’s customer service at its best! And once settlement has taken place, Derek continues to look after his customers. On our previous mortgage, and without any prompting from us, he negotiated a reduced interest rate with the lender in our behalf. This was two years after settlement and led to an increased saving on our repayments! We will definitely be contacting Derek for our future financial needs!
Derek from Mortgage Choice Carindale was an enormous help in obtaining a home loan to buy our first home. Derek has a wealth of knowledge within this industry and we would highly recommend his services to anyone wishing to buy or build a house. Without his help, we would not be in the exciting, initial stages of building our first home. He is still providing ongoing support through this process for us three months after the deal was done and we couldn’t be happier with his service. Thank you Derek.
