Weve worked with a few other mortgage brokers in the past but none were as good as Leah. What made Leah standout for us was her great and timely communication. She answered all our questions in a way that we could understand and she never kept us waiting. She was a pleasure to work with and I will certainly continue to do so.

Leah was recommended to us by our friends and understandably, she was fantastic from start to finish. She helped guide us through every step being first time buyers in Aus.
She also offered advice over and above just the purchasing process with a very personal approach which was much appreciated.
I wouldnt hesitate to use Leah again next time, or recommend to others.
Thanks again Leah.

We cannot thank Leah enough for the advice and service she provided to us. From our initial consultation to the settlement date, Leah and Amanda went above and beyond to ensure that we got the best possible interest rate and investment loan for our personal circumstances. Not to mention, in a really tight timeframe. Throughout the process, Leah kept us up-to-date and informed. Afterwards, she followed up to ensure that everything went smoothly. We cannot recommend Leah and her team enough

We cannot recommend Leah highly enough. What a wonderful experience and result
Leah, we are so grateful for your time and patience and experience and knowledge. Every time we found a potential property, you'd run the numbers, get on a call and talk us through what it would all look like. Always listening to our ideas of how to work it, then coming up with better ways. After our inspections, you were on the phone, asking us how we felt and if we wanted to move forward, always ready to impart more knowledge at every step with whatever we'd decide next. You are a true professional and an incredibly kind person. A rare find. We are clients for life and tell all our friends and family to call you whenever they're in need of a broker. Thank you again Leah Writing this from the gorgeous, spacious office of our new home - YAY

Thank you, thank you, thank you

Over the years we have always pondered over whether or not it is better with a broker or not. With Leah as our broker, we are not only convinced of the value of a broker, we are extremely grateful to have her as our broker. We have used other brokers and we are shocked at the disparity in quality. Thanks for everything

I was refereed to Leah Nugent from a friend that had nothing but good things to say. My husband and I are super happy with her service from start to finish. Very professional and informed us throughout the whole process where things were at. Nothing was ever a problem or drama for Leah, she took it all in her stride. Definitely will be recommending her services to family, friends or who ever will listen. Nothing but praise!

31 October 2022  


Leah was truly phenomenal. Easily the best broker weve dealt with, but also one of the best professionals across any industry Ive encountered. Great customer service and truly helped us get the loan across the line when time was tight. She probably could have scolded us for being slow to do the paperwork but instead she just made the deal work and did it all with a smile. Genuinely one of the best professionals Ive ever encountered, lovely person and great at her job. If youre reading this, stop looking for a broker now and call Leah. Highly, highly recommend her.

Leah Nugent was my broker for our new home loan. It was very refreshing as my old broker had really let me down with some poor lending options. I’d recommend Leah to anyone who’s in need of a broker etc. Leah always replied to my emails & phone calls asap. She made the whole borrowing experience stress free.

From my initial contact with Leah to my Refinance Settlement I found her to be EXTREMELY friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
