I have used Shane Papp’s services a couple of times now to navigate the whole home loan process and finding the best products that suited me.
He took the time to come out and meet with us to get a good understanding of what we required and wanted and then used his knowledge to narrow down the field of products to get us the best deals that were available at the time.
He gave great advice and helped with making the application process as quick and painless as possible.
Couldn’t have asked for more in terms of service and attentiveness and definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to engage a broker.

We believe Glenn did an incredible job of letting us know when and what should be happening in the process of our mortgage when our Realtor, solicitor and local bank where failing us and the fact he was operating from the other side of the country was amazing.
