Erich understood our requirements and suggested the best way to structure our mortgages to suit our needs. He worked highly effectively with the best lender to deliver the outcome. He was always responsive and informative.

I found Erich to be honest and was able to communicate all aspects of the process which made me feel completely comfortable - would certainly go back :-)

Erich provided as much information and guidance as needed in a timely manner. I think if the situation were different it would have been a much smoother and quicker process. I felt supported and informed throughout the process.

Particularly for first home buyers, we would recommend Erich for any home loan/lending needs. Erich's outstanding professionalism and knowledge of his lending products ensures his clients get the best results. We have no hesitation in recommending Erich to anyone we know and would not use anyone else!

Erich, I'm very thankful and grateful for the help you've provided. Your prompt responses to any questions I've had, along with taking the time to build the big picture has been fantastic.

Thanks for the amazing service. John, you were incredibly responsive and helpful. We really appreciate it! Furthermore, our application process was challenging due to our living circumstances overseas. However, you persevered and were very patient throughout the whole process. Thanks again!

Erich, I didn't know anything but you answered everything easily so I could understand it.

05 March 2021  



We were very happy with the service we received. Erich was extremely responsive and helpful. We were purchasing a property from overseas and he worked extra hard to accommodate time zone challenges and other issues as they arose. Erich was very quick to follow up and we felt we could ask any question and get a clear, informed answer. That support was fantastic!

As always John was professional, approachable, available and provided great service and options for our loan needs - reducing paperwork and providing clear advice and instructions - hence we've come back three times = 3 loans. Thanks John and team!

Erich made our mortgage application significantly easier than expected. He and the other staff were incredibly responsive, even when given very short time frames. We came into this process expecting a bureaucratic headache but everything just worked. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing. Thank you Erich for saving my bacon!

Erich, we are happy with your services and the way you engage in solving our requests.

17 July 2019  



My loan was so difficult to deal with because of my circumstances. John fought tooth and nail to get it approved. For section 3, I gave a score of 3 because it took ages to get the approval thru as the bank kept inquiring over figures and questioning my accountant's interpretations as I am self employed.

15 May 2019  



We were very happy with Erich's service. He is very personable; yet very professional and able to give good advice (we believe) suited to our situation. Erich kept in good touch and we really appreciated his time explaining our loan application paperwork. We recommend you highly, Erich. Thanks!

I was having issues in obtaining a home loan with the bank I was with for over 20 years. The bank kept rejecting my application for a home loan and would not explain or advise on what the issue was and why it was being rejected. I approached Erich at Mortgage Choice who looked at my details and my application and advised me on exactly what the issue was and how to rectify it in order to obtain a home loan. After all this issues were rectified, I engaged the services of Erich in applying for a home loan and it was accepted by a bank with no further issues. Without the services of Mortgage Choice I would not have been able to obtain a home loan. I highly recommend Erich as a broker and would utilise their services again if needed. Thank you to Erich Gruener and his staff for their assistance in this matter and I am eternally grateful.

Thank you (John and Maureen) for all your assistance with the purchase of my first property, it made settlement much less intimidating knowing I had help navigating the process and that I could call on you both for advice.

I've been meaning to drop you a line to say thank you John for your help in organising our home loan for our first house purchase. It was a daunting process for us as we'd never done it before and your help made all the difference. We'd also like to thank you for the very nice gift hamper we received.

I will be recommending you to friends in Canberra and we'll probably be back in future if we decide to move (although that will not be for many years).

Thanks again.

Leighton and I are very grateful for Erich's professional and responsive manner during our loan application process. We are somewhat in awe of your knowledge of lenders and how best to assist us in each circumstance we are in. Although I hope we will not be moving anytime soon, we will have no hesitation in getting in touch with you should the need arise. Thank you for helping us out again.
