Mel has been our mortgage broker for a number of years. She has helped us secure our family home in a wonderful location, refinance to enable some renovations (and securing a better interest rate to make it seem as though the renovations were free!), and most recently, secure an investment property to help secure the future of our young family as the property market continues to boom. Mel displays an incredible attention to detail, and makes the whole process seamless.. when we’re sure it’s anything but that! Her diligence in securing the best deal for us has instilled us great confidence, as we make these often daunting, life changing decisions. Mel provides an exceptional service to our region, and we have recommended her services to friends and families with great success. We would highly recommend Mel to anyone looking to reassess their current situation or head into the property market for the first time.”

My many thanks and compliments to Melanie Shillinglaw. Melanie Shillinglaw- Mortgage Choice in Doreen and surrounding Suburbs provides an outstanding service, she is warm, friendly, caring and very good at what she does. Last year I refinanced with Melanie and was very happy with a rate she negotiated for me that was almost 1% below everyone else, no fees, much better than NAB and resulted in me saving a significant amount of money, additionally, Melanie made it so easy, she run all the numbers, went through my options, handled all the paperwork, dealt with the bank - could not be happier. We all put our mortgage on I'll get to it later or it's ok, I'm on a good deal list but seriously when was the last time you made sure you actually had the best deal? I know people that spend time looking through junk mail to save a few dollars at the supermarket yet never think about their mortgage! - stop wasting money, talk to Mel

We both just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and awesome service. Aaron and I were so nervous and scared we would never get a loan for our dream home. But you went out of your way, above and beyond to help us and made the whole process so much easier. We can't thank you enough because this definitely wouldn't have happened without you. We will be recommending you to everyone. Thank you again for helping to make our dream finally come true.

Melanie has our regular broker for a number of years. She gives us the best advice possible that will benefit our financial situation with regards to home loans and lenders. She has been there to respond even on leave - that level of service is why I will continue to utilise her services.

Melanie took us through the mortgage process with the utmost professionalism and diligence, and secured us the best deal possible for our needs. She communicated to us in laymans terms so we completely understood what was offered from lenders to satisfy what we wanted. She became our one stop source of advice and information, and made the journey of buying a home easier than we ever imagined. Melanie is a wonderful asset and advocate of Mortgage Choice!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Melanie Shillinglaw from Mortgage Choice for the excellent service while helping us to refinance our mortgage. I was not really sure what to expect, having used a mortgage broker in the past and not being satisfied with the experience. I decided to give Melanie a go after reading her profile and the information on her Facebook page, she really seemed to know her stuff. I was so impressed with her ability to understand our situation and recommend the products that will suit our needs, not only now but in the future. I had a fairly good understanding of the offers in the market, and was delighted when Melanie was not only able to offer a great deal, but she negotiated an even better rate than I could have on my own. The service didn’t stop there, the paper work was so easy to organise and Melanie kept us updated throughout the process to ensure a smooth transition from our existing lender to our new lender. Thanks so much Melanie, nothing was too much trouble. It was great working with her and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great deal and great customer experience.
