Leanne was amazing to work with and we would absolutely recommend her. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Her guidance helped us secure a loan quickly and without any fuss. She went above and beyond to help us understand the process and made sure we were getting the right mortgage for our circumstances. Thank you, Leanne. We cant wait to move into our new home

Leanne and the team were amazing at helping us refinance to carry out some renovations. The process was easy and straight forward and they provided excellent guidance throughout.
In addition, they even negotiated a rate reduction with one of our previous lenders without us even having to ask. How good is that
Very happy.

Leanne Dodds was exceptional.

We had a tricky situation in relation to doing a renovation to our home. Leanne completely understood what we wanted and needed to refinance and tap into our homes equity.

Long story short going directly to our now ex-bank and having to jump through hoops to refinance and utilise the equity to renovate versus speaking to Leanne over the phone and video conferencing and getting the deal done without one hoop was simply amazing.

Do I recommend Leanne in my eyes you'd be crazy to not utilise her great skill, knowledge and customer service.

My wife and I will never go through a bank directly again to finance anything.

Thanks again Leanne.

PS. Maybe one day we'll meet in person.

We found working with Mortgage choice Tumbi a very pleasant experience. They made buying our first investment property easy.
The level of service and expertise provided by Emily was faultless from start to finish. Regular and clear communication clearly stood out from the entire team. Emily was always willing to answer our questions and provided us with relevant information. John was fantastic, provided different options which made it easy for us to quickly decide on what we exactly wanted. He explained it in plain and simple math.
We felt supported throughout the entire process and are looking forward to working with them again.
We will highly recommend Mortgage Choice Tumbi Umbi to anyone looking for a loan.

I cant speak more highly of Leanne and the team at Mortgage Choice Tumbi Umbi.
All my phone calls, question, and just random what about this were answered quickly and patiently - especially being a first home buyer and having zero experience with such complex matters.
Leanne made buying my first home such an easier process, especially as this was a very short timeframe from the open house to the keys in my hand.
If youre looking for someone to help guide you through your first home buying experience, or just mortage questions, I would strongly recommend giving Leanne and the team a call.
