“Peter’s attention to detail and knowledge of the mortgage market made a complex transaction very painless.”
Doryan, Castlemaine 

Save hours researching the best deals

Quickly compare 450+ loans from over 20 lenders, including the big 4 banks. No need to spend ages trawling websites, finding rates and calculating repayments. I do it all for you in seconds.

Save money with better rates

As a mortgage broker with one of the “big three” groups, I can access better loan rates than you get on your own.

Avoid the headache of complex forms

Leave the tedious forms and phone calls to me. You won’t have to worry about tricky terms and jargon. Or jump every time the bank requests “one more thing”. Sit back and relax while I do the running around.

Free advice you can trust

Some brokers steer you towards loans that are better for them than they are for you. But I get paid the same rate no matter which home loan you choose from our panel of lenders. So you can be sure of this: I only want the best deal for you.

How I get you the right deal

Step 1 — Work out exactly what you need

We meet to discuss your income, your expenses and your plans. If you like, I can visit you in your home, outside office hours.

Step 2 — Search the market thoroughly

I compare 450+ loans from over 20 lenders and help you select the best loan. I go through the options with you, explaining the finer points and discussing the pros and cons so you know exactly what you get with each deal.

Step 3 — Fill in all the forms

I complete and submit the paperwork, handle the requests for information, and keep you up to date on the progress of your application.

Step 4 — Deliver the loan on time

Don’t worry about banks or conveyancers causing you headaches. I sort out any problems. I've even driven two hours to Melbourne to ensure documents reached the bank.

Step 5 — Ensure you’re 100% happy

I phone you after your loan goes through to check everything’s OK and that all the accounts have been set up correctly.

And I don’t stop there…

Every 12 months I check with you to make sure the loan still meets your needs.
