John was available and helpful throughout the whole process of my refinance. He said he would get the job done - and he did.

From the very first contact John was always the broker we were going to use. His calm methodical manner put my wife and I at ease that we had chosen the right man to help us.
Communication from John was fantastic It happened often and we never felt we needed to chase him for anything.
The process was straightforward and we got exactly the result we wanted, with the lender we wanted. We plan on using John again and would highly recommend him to anyone.

John looked after my finance as 1st home buyer and got me in my place very quickly.
A hard working broker who also happens to be flexible making the buying process less stressful.

If you want to be in the best of hands getting a home loan, specially when you have zero experience buying a home, go with John.
He will walk you through the mortgage process, loan typesoptions really clearly. He answered all the questions I could possibly throw at him and he was happy to chat through any tricky topics over the phone until I felt fully confident I understood what I was doing.
John was always in touch and checking I had completed certain tasks in time and kept everything moving smoothly with the lender and my conveyancer throughout the whole process.
Very professional, knowledgable and patient, I highly recommend John Timms as your Broker of choice

Have used John three times now for different support and had faultless service each time. He is flexible, knowledgeable and responsive. He works hard to ensure he offers the best possible support and has got us the result we wanted each time. Would have no issues recommending to anyone.

John was brilliant. From the very beginning, he provided a wealth of information and support as I bought my first investment. When we reached any obstacles, he offered a solution. I’d happily recommend John to anyone I know seeking a broker.

John Timms couldn’t have been more helpful. I’d gladly recommend him to my friends and family in a heartbeat.
From start to finish he was assisting me.My deal (auction) went through at 10pm and i needed advice from John and he answered my call after 11pm. He put me on to an excellent conveyancer (Fleur)who made the deal trouble free.
End of the day can’t say enough of Johns efforts and assistance.

John Timms was above and beyond amazing! He got me finance despite multiple and significant hurdles that others had walked away from. He stayed positive and extremely diligent despite a big mistake from myself. I cannot thank him enough for his achievements, my life has changed enormously thanks to his huge huge efforts. He succeeded where so many had failed before. I am forever grateful and appreciative of his brilliant work.

I cannot speak highly enough of John. He was so professional and efficient throughout the entire process and helped to alleviate my stress as I had been very poorly serviced by a previous broker. The entire process was seamless and quick with John.

John Timms was supportive, patient and understanding for my unique situation but most importantly maintained communication the whole time as well as a non judgemental approach. I have already recommended Smartline to others. Thank you

Stressful! Very poor customer service and communication skills. We initiated contact, we initiated updates. Wrong forms used in application process. Did not have trust in this particular Broker at all.

John was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He helped us through each step of the process and we were glad we stick to his advice saving us an considerable amount. We definitely would recommend John for Mortgage advice.

I had the privilege of having John Timms as my broker and he delivered exceptional service and provided solutions every step of the way. Even when there were issues/delays he will always be able to communicate promptly and professionally.

John was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He helped me find a great deal and worked with me and the dealership to organise it all. He even got the insurance company to call me to provide a quote.

My experience with Smartline was exceptional. My broker made every effort to help us through the forms and information that we needed to provide. They ensured that everything happened in a timely manner and we managed to bring our settlement forward.
