We have now used Katharine twice and will definitely be using her again. Everything was extremely straight forward, kept us informed and got us a resolution that far exceeded our expectations - a solution that we had been advised was not even an option by both the bank and other mortgage brokers. 10 star rating!

02 March 2019  


Katharine provides an exceptional level of customer service, she provided me with clear advice, gave options and made sure all the boxes were ticked prior to lodgement of documents with bank. This is the 2nd time that Katharine has helped me secure a mortgage and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Once again, Katharine went above and beyond in helping us to organise the finance to purchase our new home!
Cannot speak highly enough of Katharine and would recommend her to anybody seeking a mortgage broker.

26 May 2018  


This was my first home loan and Katharine was more than helpful. It was both exciting and daunting but Katharine stepped me through the process with ease. I would highly recommend Katharine’s services.

19 May 2018  


This is the 2nd time that Katharine Smoother has assisted me with my mortgage - first to puchase a home and the second time to refinance, and I strongly recommend her to everyone. She kept me well informed throughout the whole process, taking my calls (even on Sunday) and answering my late night emails promptly. I believe that she went over and above what was expected to get me the best possible deal. I cannot speak highly enough of her. She was extremely professional, her attention to detail was fantastic and her friendly and approachable manner made the whole process stress free. You should be very thankful that you have such a wonderful person working under the smartline banner - her excellent work is far better advertising than any advertising campaign could ever be, and I will continue to spread the word about the fantastic experiences I have had.

21 May 2016  


Katharine is a stickler for detail! She made us very aware of things that can go wrong, advised us not to get too sure of approval, but in the end all was well and she came through with the goods! She was able to pull a few strings and keep on top of things along the way with her banking knowledge. Very impressive!

15 May 2016  


I have had the pleasure of dealing with Katherine Smoother many times.She is absolutely the best.I would highly recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

Katharine has been fantastic! She\'s incredibly easy to deal with, and did all the hard work for me. I appreciate how accessible and approachable she was through the whole process - nothing was too much trouble - and I also appreciate how she took a real interest in my purchase (it\'s nice not to feel like a number or just another one of the crowd). I have no hesitation recommending Katharine to anyone looking for a mortgage.

We have used Katharine Smoother twice (in the last 3 years), and we are very impressed with the way that she has made the loan application process easy. The first time, we built a house on a property that we were sub-dividing, and the second time, we bought an established home that had \'added value\', as it was also sub-dividable. Our ability to prove our income is also complicated, as we live overseas, but are paid from Australia, but she managed to handle all of these factors, and get us the result. We would have no hesitation in recommending her, and Smartline.

23 March 2016  


05 March 2016  


Katherine was fantastic! She was always contactable and returned calls quickly. Everything was explained in easy to understand terms and she was very patient when I needed things explained a few times!! I have already recommended her to two family members who are looking at taking out new loans and will recommend her to anyone I know of doing the same. Thanks Katherine!

06 February 2016  


Katharine was a great help, she took alot of the financial weight off our shoulders. We knew very quickly we had made a great decision by enlisting her as our representative. Thankyou so much. Cheers

23 November 2015

Katharine once again provided us with prompt, efficient and friendly service during the refinancing process. We are very happy with our new loan and will contact Katharine again next time we need a loan.

30 September 2015  


23 September 2015  


After 6 weeks of back and forth with a bank branch, we were recommended Katherine. It took her 2.5 business days to secure us unconditional approval on our home loan. Although we didn't end up with the lowest interest rate on the market, the loan splits and benefits that she secured for us mean the loan set up is perfect for us. She was not only efficient, but very accessible and friendly to deal with. I would recommend her to anyone, a wonderful broker.

Mrs Smoother is great at what see does and makes the whole process so easy. She explains everything very clearly and in simple terms so us average people can understand it. She is always easy to arrange time to meet up, any time of the day, even late in the evening to suit my work hours. This is the second time I've used Kath and will use her again next time. I always tell everyone about her, and if need to, use her.

We first applied for a loan in febuary 2014 to purchase a 70 acre lifestyle block with a brick home on it but were declined, Kathryn did not close the book on us she told us what we needed to improve on and how much extra money we needed to save. Kathryn kept in close contact with us phoneing us every 8 weeks to check in after a long wait our loan was approved in November and we are now in our new home. The service has not stopped there she called us after settlement to make sure everything was good and let us know that she would contact us in 12 months to catch up and to give her a call if we needed anything in the meantime.

Absolutely gobsmacked with the service we recieved!! We had never previously used mortgage advisors and we were pleasantly surprised with how much easier this process was for us this time around.

My Advisor Katharine Smoother, is amazing & thanks to all her work we are now the proud owners of a beautiful home that we had been renting for 4 years. We had an unsuccessful loan application a few months prior to contacting Katharine as we were told my husband had not been with his current employer long enough & we needed to reaply after 6 months, even though he had recently change jobs he has worked in the same industry for 25 years & had never been unemployed. If we had waited the 6 months we would have missed out on buying the home we wanted. Thanks to Katharine & all her amazing work, finding a lender that would look at my husbands work history (not just how long he had been with his current employer). We settled just before Christmas, It was the best Christmas present we could hope for. Thanks again Katharine, I have already passed on your contact details & we are so happy to have you on our team. Kind regards, Gary & Suzanne Naylor

Smartline was definitely the best choice for me!!, wouldn't have been possible without Katharine Smoother. She is absolutely AMAZING and that's an understatement !!! Extremely professional, and explained my loan options in a way that I could understand clearly..she doesn't treat your loan application as though you are just a number ! unlike the main banks. Katharine has actually saved me thousands even in just a year ! Smartline are flexible in their approach..they actually COME to you ! they know you have a busy personal life. Katharine has also given me the tools/ advice to continue to save me money ect. Thankyou SO much Katharine Smoother at " Smartline" I have already recommended you to SO many people. Nadia Jackson

Katherine was extremely helpful, friendly and flexible. I always recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy a house.

28 November 2013  


Katharine was brilliant, every question answered thoughtfully, timely and honestly. I will be recommending Smartline to my family and friends. Cannot speak highly enough of the personal service provided. She was there with me every step of the way reassuring me when I had silly questions, what bank would do that in such a personable way??

16 November 2013  


she has made it the best home buying experience ever out of buying 2 homes previousely and she is very informative and professional. Best experience and will highly reccommend her.

11 November 2013  


Katharine was a godsend and was able to find a lender who would lend to a non resident when our own bankers (NAB) changed the goalposts. She kept us informed throughout the process and explained everything in simplistic terms that were easy to understand. our experience was extremely stress free from start to finish. Thanks Katharine for enabling us to start our new life in Australia in our own home.

My partner and I have been continually impressed by Katherine. She is very professional, we both agree that Katherine went above and beyond for us, as I am sure she does for every client. We, as first home buyers/builders knew very little about borrowing prior to our experience with smartline, Katherine armed us with the knowledge we needed, she also has a good report with the builder we chose. Her help through our building process was priceless. We recommend her to everybody, and no doubt will use smartline again in the future.

21 June 2013  


Katherine is outstanding she is very efficient, gave me great advice and took all the stress out of organising my loans in a town where I knew no one I felt so lucky to be put in contact with katherine, who helped me to understand my choices and set up my loans, even though I work away in a remote location I had complete confidence in Katherine her friendly helpful manner and always contactable she kept me updated on progress while away I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Katherine.

19 June 2013  


Katharine was wonderful. We always felt comfortable talking to her and appreciated her honesty. She worked very hard to get us in the best position we could be in financially and there is no way we would be in our new home without her help.

15 June 2013  


She was wonderful and made both apply for our first home loan and 12 months later refinancing our loan easy and stress free.

08 June 2013  



04 April 2013  


Katherine is a wealth of knowledge and was able to find a way to get our new property that we would not have considered. She is always available, remains in touch and that is why we will continue to have Katherine as our broker.

03 April 2013  


Katharine was extremely easy to deal with and made the whole process painless. Her overall understanding of products and general property purchase rigmarole was very helpful. She explained things very well with no tech speak and we would recommend her to anyone to assist with their purchase. She's just a lovely person, so accommodating and really does go the extra mile to see that everything is done properly and on time. You could never go wrong with Katharine.

02 April 2013  


I would definitely recommend Katherine Smoother to anyone she was very professional and also genuinely caring to my situation

28 March 2013  


Katharine was able to assist us finding a loan for a rural property that we otherwise might not have found. Her help and communication was always excellent, she was even able to recommend other people to us for conveyancing etc. who were equally as helpful.

20 March 2013

I work in the property industry and refer Katharine Smoother to my clients over any other broker/banker - she is fantastic!

24 January 2013  


Talking to Kathrine was like talking to my sister only Katherine is smarter,we were so comfortable discusing all facets of the loan.We live on a farm and Katherine was allways on time regardles of circumstances. I would hate to pay her phone bill as she was allways in contact with us letting us know every stage of the loan.Better still i think i have found a new friend.Thank You Les Sparks

03 January 2013  


My fiancee and I have used Katherine Smoother several times, and we both regard Katherine very highly. Katherine made our experiances in borrowing quite stress free and was always available to explain whatever was unclear. I have no doubt that we will use her again. We have, and will continue to, recommed her to everyone who is considering borrowing or refinancing.

27 December 2012  


I think all of my dealings with Katharine was great
and she made my transition into my owning my home
so easy.

12 December 2012  


Katherine Smoother was absolutley brilliant, i could not reccommend her highly enough, nothing was too hard or ever a problem, she is definatley an asset to your company

07 December 2012  


I was talking to a CBA employee a couple of days ago re Discharge of Mortage. My end of the conversation consisted of "My Mortgage Broker this...." My Mortgage Broker that...." etc etc etc. Finally the CBA employee just had to know who this amazing Mortgage Broker was, I mentioned Katharine Smoother's name and this fellow immediately knew of her and told me that she has an excellent reputation and is held in high esteem based on word of mouth amongst bank employees. What a wonderful testament for Katharine and Smartline! Keep up the good work. Jo Leek

06 December 2012  


We could not fault Katharine in any way. She was very knowledgeable, friendly reliable and very professional in our dealings. We will certainly continue using smartline and will recommend to all family and friends

01 December 2012  


Katherine was really friendly and very helpful through the whole loan process

16 November 2012  


Katherine made the whole process very easy. She answered all our questions and never made us feel silly for asking

04 November 2012  


Katharine was always available to help with any of our enquiries no matter what time. We went from not even thinking we would be able to purchase a house to moving into our own home within a couple of months. This was due to Katharine's clear and valuable advice to our circumstances. We have, and will continue to recommened any home buyers to talk to Katharine. Thank-you!

Katharine is very approachable and has good product knowledge.

Katharine was fantastic throughout our entire loan application process. We were kept informed every step of the way, and felt so confident that our specific circumstances were being catered for by Katharine's individualised approach. Katharine and Smartline are highly recommended by these very satisfied customers.

30 August 2012  


As a first home buyer I was guided by an experienced professional through the whole process

01 August 2012  


Katharine was absolutely amazing. She helped us find out the best solution for us and helped us every step of the way. We would have made some big mistakes if we hadn't have gone to see Katharine. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

My partner and I work full time so other Mortgage Brokers couldn't fit us in. Katharine made herself available after hours (even on Sunday nights) to provide us with the info we needed. Being first home buyers, Katharine provided us with so much helpful info. Will definitely recommend to our friends!

30 April 2012  


Katherine was absolutely fantastic...nothing was a problem and any question's we had she was able to help us.Trevor and I would have no hesitation in recommending Katherine to anyone who needs help.

19 December 2011  


Katherine was truly amazing while i was after my home loan. Her help and knowledge was extremely valuable and she made me feel comfortable with all the decisions that needed to be made. Katherine was always available for any questions that i had and she was very clear and accurate with her responses. Thanks for everything, Kath!

15 December 2011  


30 November 2011  


Our Smartline Adviser made the whole process of buying our first home so simple and stress-free. Katharine was always available to answer our questions and explained everything very clearly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking at taking out a mortgage.

16 November 2011  


The purchase of our new house was made so easily and seamlessly with the great assistance from Katharine and Smartline

03 November 2011

15 October 2011  


As a first home buyer I was apprehensive about having a mortgage, and prior to the meeting Katharine I knew very little about what was available. I was very pleased to have been refered to Katharine from a friend. She is a brilliant adviser. Katharine was very patient while I found the perfect house, and had all of the documentation ready to go as soon as my offer was accepted. She took the hastle out of the process! Thanks Katharine!

Overall good service, would recommend with one warning: One major negative was that the details of when the FHBG would be paid were not explained up front. As a consequence we had to scramble to get the extra money for the deposit for which we'd been lead to believe we could use the FHBG which we weren't eligible for until settlement and not at exhange. This was the only sore point for us, and we would recommend Katharine to our friends for her services.

I thought she was wonderful in regards to the general process of applying for a mortgage. She didnt have much knowledge of our bank but was very willing to find out and assist.

02 August 2011  


As a single woman I have needed help making financial decisions. Katherine has been an asset to helping me gain a bit of independence in making these decisions. This is the second time I have sought her assistance and would do so again. Her input has been invaluable.

26 July 2011  


we were 1st put in touch with Katharine by a friend. we had ALWAYS been with our previous bank and never had any issues. after talking to Katharine we had found that she could offer us alot more with our loan. one to really suit us and our life. We instantly found Katharine to be a very warm and friendly person. She has helped us though what i thought would be a nightmare in buying another house. i would email her silly questions and she was always fast on her reply and helping me understand what was happening. She has now become a friend. She has already seen our house and brought a lovely pressie with her!!! im sure we will continue to be friends with Katharine and also get advice from her as well. but now the friendship comes first. Thank you!!!!!!!

15 July 2011  


She is very organised, as financial decisions can be difficult sometimes she has made ours very easy, highly recommended in our household

14 July 2011  


I've delt with serveral Mortgage brokers Katharine is by far the *BEST* mortagage broker I've ever met.

13 July 2011  


Katharine was great and we will use her again... she was flexible and always got back to us quickly. Katharine was always one step ahead with the process and this was helpful.. we never had to chase her for anything.

09 July 2011  


Katharine was very helpful and accomodating, especially as we were first home buyers. the after-hours home visits made the whole process very simple and convenient also.

06 June 2011  


Katherine was a huge help. I admit to being financially incompetent so there were a lot of things that I didn't even know that I didn't know. Katherine was very patient with me and could even foresee things that I was likely to be unaware of and either handled the issue herself on my behalf or at least told me explicitly what I needed to do. Katherine really made the whole process as easy and cost effective as I think was possible.

02 June 2011  


Was fantastic transaction was so smooth and simple all the research and everything was done for me and set out in a simple understandable manner will definitely use Katherine again when I transfer my loan in the next year

19 May 2011  


12 May 2011  


Katherine was fantastic. She was helpful, professional and demonstrated a strong knowledge of the different loans to suit our needs. I would recommend Katherine to all of our friends and family.

09 May 2011  


Katharine helped me for 3 years to get my first home. She always had a solution was, was always ready to have a chat about where i was at and what i needed to do. She made the whole process easy, uncomplictaed and as stress free as i could hope.

What I liked most was the genuine interest shown regarding the purchase of my new property. I beleive justification to why a chosen bank was recommended over other financial institutions with evidence to support to support their decision.

Good Morning
What can I say.... The service offered was totally professional from first contact to settlement. Katharine Smoother was EXCEPTIONAL! Her industry knowledge and sound advice inspired the utmost confidence in her personal ability and in the wonderful service offered by Smartline. Katharine is a valuable representative for Smartline, she is the perfect blend of professionalism, friendliness, accessibility and good humour. I truly cannot praise her highly enough. I feel Smartline must offer their representatives access to a wonderful support network, which results in a superior customer experience. Keep up the good (and valuable)work. Kind regards
Jo Leek

19 November 2010  


Katherine was excellent through a very stressful time. I can't praise her enough. i have refered her on to all my mates and will use her again.

14 November 2010  


I very rarely meet anyone as competent as Katharine and she has an engaging ersonality that complements her business acumen. I know that she is a valued and loyal employee that is comitted to the business goals of your company. One in a million !

We were most impressed with Katharine's knowledge and friendly attitude. She was very efficent and completed tasks in a timely manner. Coming to met us in our home after hours was more convienent for us and we greatly appreciated it.

23 July 2010  


16 July 2010  


I found Katharine's personal relation skills and knowledge relating to everything involved in my process of refinancing my home loan and purchasing an investment property were excellent. I cannot think of any way to add value to your service having personally dealt with Katharine whom I would recommend highly to anyone I know needs to refinance or upgrade their property portfolio.

08 July 2010  


28 June 2010  


we found katharine to be exceptional and took a lot of stress away from us

16 June 2010  


Katherine made the whole process smooth and easy, hassle free.I have already gone back to her for another loan.

30 May 2010  


As a first home buyer, the advise and assistance I received from Katharine was extremely beneficial. At the time I stumbled across Katharine, I was in the process of researching various loans and I was extremely confused. I had only a basic knowledge of loans and did not feel comfortable with any of the bank managers I met. I felt at ease discussing the process with Katharine and I felt a lot more comfortable getting assistance from an independant adviser.

04 April 2010  


We found our adviser to be very attentive to our needs and so very well equipted to be able to provide us ALL the potential options and advice to assist us in making the right choice of in a loan. I have had no hesitation in refering her to at least four couples considering property investment.

24 February 2010  


I did not get the feeling that katherine gave us many different options of Home Loan Lenders to look at but she was very good in customer service. Every time she send us something she followed it up with a phone call to make sure we received it and understood it. she is very very patient and does not mind explaining things over again. She gave you really the feeling to do her best for us.

17 February 2010  


Being in the real estate selling industry myself, finding a good reliabe broker can be a challenge, Katherine always when delaing with myself or my clients makes every effort to make every deal a success.
