The service we received from our broker (Mel) was first class, she made the entire process extremely easy for us and kept us informed throughout and was more than willing to answer any questions we had along the way.

Mel went above and beyond for us during our separation which made the process of sorting out finances very easy.
Thank you!

I never fill out these but because of my personal experience with Mel when I seen this email pop up I thought the amount of effort and try Mel put into making my wish come true, the least I could do was acknowledge her commitment to the smartline branch and her community. Thankyou for such a wonderful service.

Informative, smooth, easy process. I would recommend to anyone. Mel was great. Helped us terrificaly through the process and was able to quickly update our applications when things changed at the last moment. People often comment about how difficult home loan applications are but I can honestly say it was as easy as a short meeting and Mel handled everything else. Our first home loan was a breeze!

Excellent service by Mel Whelan. As first home buyers, we were not sure of many aspects of applying for loan. Mel did a great job by explaining everything patiently and assisting us with her knowledge of the industry. I would definitely recommend her to my friends.

02 October 2017  


Mel was the saving factor in a deal which could have easily fallen through. Mel delivered a very high level of satisfaction in the professional and timely manner in which she went about financing and refinancing to meet our personal requirements. I have already recommended Mel to other colleagues and friends of mine.

Even though we knew Mel she acted very professional at all times. She was soo knowledgeable and knew her products. Her laid back attitude made us feel very comfortable especially when making decisions and signing contracts.
Have already recommended her and Smartline to other family and friends.

07 January 2016  


Having had many recommendations to use Mel as our broker we were disappointed with the service. There were many changes in bank rules etc along the way, which may have been avoided if the applications were completed and lodged before she went on holidays. We found we had to contact her in order to get information.

Thankyou for providing an opportunity to praise the work of Melinda Whelan. I have been utilising the service of Melinda the past few years and I always find her to be professional in all areas of service. Melinda (Mel) is only to ready to answer any questions I may have (no question is a stupid question) and she assists us to get the most from our lending. I have been very confident in recommending Mel to friends and work colleagues, as I know that they would be in good hands.

Mel is always accommodating, I fully trust the advise that I am given for my needs at the time. The best advise and service that a client can receive and ask for.I have recommended Mel to many of my friend and they continually go back as their circumstances change. Mel deserves a medal.

Mel was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process in helping us buy our first home. We were difficult customers because we wanted a rural property on a particular road and it needed to be certified, we finally found the right one and Mel helped us through quickly and smoothly!

This is the second time that I have used the service of Smartline (Melinda Whelan). I have been very happy with the service. I have and will continue to recommend the services of Melinda to friends and family.

Mel's service was exceptional. And still is. I feel very important. Nothing is a problem.

19 September 2013  


Mel made the process very easy for us, she helped us take control of our current loan situation and when we were delayed by the bank she made contact with the bank to ensure that our builder received his payment within a reasonable time. I would highly recommend Melinda, the entire experience was stress free and easy. I plan to use her service again.

18 September 2013  


Mel was so easy to deal with; choices with full explanation were given and what she said made sense. My business transaction was delt with in a highly professional manner that also included friendly customer service above and beyond what one would consider normal customer service - all of this makes you feel important and definately want to come back

Only downfall was the bank and their delay in corresponding, not the advisors fault.

24 May 2011  


If all Personal Mortgage Advisors are the quality of Melinda, then you are will be the preferred agency for Personal Mortgage Advisors in no time. Melinda should be used to train others as her knowledge, people skills, and efficiency are second to none (and I've dealt with a number of people in my time).

03 May 2011  


Awesome service from Mel. Very friendly, knew her products and kept us informed throughout the whole process. After the process was complete, we still had further contact ensuring we were 100% happy. The thankyou basket was a great touch. We will definitely use her again!! Darren & Heather Kirk
