Great experience with Mark for the second time initially was for purchasing my first property 3 years ago, then recently when refinancing that property. He was helpful, reassuring and answered my multitude of questions being inexperienced in mortgages. Took care of everything, so I didn't have to worry about. Highly recommend

Mark Waugh has assisted us with several loans refinancing over the years. He was recommended by friends and I would similarly recommend his services to others. He made it very simple to compare lenders and obtain the most competitive rates.

Mark has assisted me in navigating through what often feels like a minefield of information and processes when it comes to applying for a home loan. I called upon his expertise with my initial home loan and now once again with my refinancing. Truly makes it a painless process, at least for me -

We have used Mark for our mortgage needs, both personal home and investments for many years, including recent refinancing. He has been professional and personable and taken all the stress associated with dealing with banks and lenders to find the best options for us, completely off our shoulders.
I would highly recommend him. Thanks Mark.

Thank you very much Mark for your help with our loan application recently. You made the process so simple and seamlessly for us. You impressed us again with your professionalism and care for your clients. Cannot recommend you enough.

Only the highest of praise and thanks to Mark for his service helping us secure our first home loan. As first home buyers, we had very minimal knowledge of the details, requirements and stages of the process. Mark explained everything clearly even multiple times, explored all scenarios with us to make sure we were comfortable with our decision, made gathering documents super simple and worked late into the night when we gave him some pretty tight timeframes. Our mortgage was secured without delay, and he responded quickly to my many questions throughout. I wholeheartedly trust Mark and his advice, and will call him first up when were ready for our next property

Mark assisted with initially navigating and securing a loan for purchasing our first property, and subsequently guided us through the process of refinancing when our fixed rate loan had run its course. In both instances Mark provided great advice, found the best rates available at each time, explained the process and the concepts clearly and in simple terms, and guided us through the steps in a way that made the experience straightforward and low stress. Highly recommend his professional, friendly, and effective service.

Mark is a great professional, strongly recommending him.

Mark is a highly experienced and knowledgeable professional delivered prompt, efficient and timely service in relation to the mortgage requirements with my first property purchase - I highly recommend Mortgage Choice Norman Park.

Mark was extremely helpful during the process of the purchase of my next home. He assisted with additional information, which allowed me to confidently offer on properties without the fear of my finance being comprised during the time of regular rate hikes.
I can not recommend Mark and services highly enough.

Mark was great to work with, he pushed the bank who was processing our home loan application to give a timely response when it was needed.

He also proactively spoke to our Real Estate Agent to give him peace of mind and reassured him on any time sensitive matters that related to the financing.

I found the experience of refinancing our home loan with Mark at Mortgage Choice Norman Park a smooth process.
Mark took time to ensure that he found the right Lender and was constantly available to answer questions, Whilst ensuring the correct documents are submitted for a prompt approval.

Mark Waugh was amazing in helping to walk us through the process of obtaining finance to purchase our first home. He was very patient and was happy to answer any and all questions that we had.

Mark was amazing to work with. He was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. My husband and I had an unique case and Mark was able to identify some important parts of the home loan that were needed that other brokers weren't able to identify. We couldn't recommend Mark enough. Thank you Mark for changing our life

Cannot recommend Mark and Mortgage Choice Norman Park enough. It took sometime to work through our loanlending scenarios and an extended time to find the right home for us, but through that time Mark with us to find the best solution to our situation.

I have been a client of Mark Waugh since 2009 when I purchased my 1st home. Since then I have purchased an investment property and refinanced that loan recently. All in all I am extremely satisfied with Mark . I would wish that my bankers overseas which handle my investment properties overseas come up to the level of service provided by Mark. Thanks again

I have dealt with Mark before with our own home loan ,and in this instance he has gone above and beyond to get us this mortgage.he got us out of a very sticky situation with the finance company. He kept us up to date with all the processes and assured us that it was all in hand which made us more relaxed with the outcome would be in our favour. I truly would recommend both Mortgage choice and Mark in particular to all my friends. As I feel with Marks dedication and care for his clients they will not be disappointed. mark is a credit to the profession and I look forward to our continued future dealings. Kindest regards Kevan whittaker

I would not normally write a testimonial but the service guidance and assistance that I received from Mark was excellent. I was hesitant to use Mortgage Choice as there was mixed reviews about the company generally but when I read Marks feedback I thought I would give him a go as it was so good. I can see why now. His knowledge about the industry and experience became quite evident and he has put me on a better path financially. If you can find that one person who can proved the advice that you need and tailor it to your circumstances you are always so much better off - that was what Mark provided me. I would not hesitate in recommending Mark and I will continue to be a client for the long term.

It was a pleasure dealing with Mark during the process of buying my first home. He was always professional yet very personable so I never felt uncomfortable to ask for further clarification on anything I didn't understand (and I asked loads!). He went over and above on many occasions, including ringing me from abroad. Mark came highly recommended to me and I'd happily recommend him to anyone about to start their real estate journey.

Mortgage Choice was recommended to us by our financial advisers. We started with a mortgage health check and progressed right through to a complete refinance.

We now have a better loan, a cheaper loan and a more convenient loan. We had no idea that the banks were offering considerable discounts on interest rates.

I would strongly recommend the services of Mortgage Choice, particularly to anyone that has not had a mortgage health check recently.

We have known Mark Waugh and his team for over 3 years and over that time we have learned to appreciate his outstanding professional conduct, his dedication and knowledge.

We have recently bought our second property and having Mark in our corner meant we always knew where we were at and that we were well looked after.

We routinely recommend Mark to our friends who are also active in the property market.

A big thanks to Mark and his team.

We were extremely happy with the service we received from Mortgage Choice. Being first home buyers we were very nervous about getting finance and all that is involved about buying a property, however, Mark was very thorough in explaining everything and he (and Lisa) were very supportive throughout the whole process. In the end it was much easier than what we expected. We also received regular feedback from Susie, the processing consultant looking after us. She kept us up to date with everything that was going on and we were never left wondering at what stage the loan approval process was at. We felt as though both she and Mark went the extra mile to make sure everything happened as quickly as possible. We are very grateful for the service we received and we would definitely recommend Mortgage Choice and Mark Waugh especially, to anyone else looking for a mortgage.

Being my first time in using a mortgage broker instead of applying to the lending institution directly, it is so much easier and is such a relief when time is of the essence in a loan application, as the broker's knowledge of each lending institution provides invaluable information as to which lender will be willing to lend the funds in my situation and at what rate of interest quickly.

Mark Waugh at MC Norman Park was a pleasure to deal with - very knowledgeable, friendly and always available to take ones call. I'd definitely recommend Mark to friends family. Thanks again for your excellent service
