Peter and his team made our refinance easy and stress free. Professional from beginning to end, we never felt anything was too much trouble, all our questions were answered and the whole process was without issue. Peter is very responsive and extremely easy and friendly to deal with. Highly recommended.

Trish & Ralf (Refinancer) Pakenham, VIC

Peter and Lynne just helped us refinance to a much better rate than we were on. It was so easy and they both were with us every step of the way. Communication is great and they follow up straight away with us and the bank to make sure things are progressing. The whole process was made very easy. I couldn’t recommend Peter and Lynne highly enough.

Michael & Johanna (Refinancer) Officer, VIC

Peter helped my wife and I purchase our first home, he made us feel like family from our first meeting and has always taken great care of us. Peter's professionalism and knowledge of the ever changing housing market and tailored loan options is impeccable. Several years after our first home purchase with Peter, he helped us again to buy our first investment property! Peter and his lovely wife and partner Lynne are the real deal and I can highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home or investment property. Don't waste your time anywhere else, give Peter & Lynne a call, you will be impressed!

I bought my first home with pretty much no stress at all. Awesome service and really good down to earth people. 100% would use these guys again.

Brennan (First Home Buyer) Mount Evelyn, VIC

Thanks to Peter and Lynne Ruddock for making the loan process easy and stress free. Your team are professional, knowledgeable and caring. Thank you for going above and beyond in assisting with my financial goals.

Jacqui (Refinancer) Vermont, VIC

Peter and Vicki have been so helpful making the complex part of moving easy. We highly recommend them.

Jon & Fiona (Upgrader) Tuerong, VIC

Most people have a busy lifestyle and the idea of reviewing the mortgage is a daunting. Peter and his team just made things so seamless

Rebecca & Mark (Refinancer) Glen Waverley, VIC

Both Peter and Vicki have been wonderful to work with. Peter has helped us many times over the past to obtain loans and organise our finances. He is professional and highly competent. Vicki has been fantastic; helping us to navigate all the complexities of the banking system. Many thanks to both of you.

Ismail & Sonia (1) (Refinancer) Macleod, VIC

Peter and Lynne do a great job. I have utilized their services on at least 3 occasions now after having them recommended to me. I recently had a very difficult experience with obtaining finance and Peter went above and beyond to help me. So I was disappointed recently to hear the Royal Commission findings for brokers. I hope any changes don’t impact Peter’s business too much. I personally don’t begrudge his commission as we all need to get paid for our services and I think Peter and Lynne do a great job.

Susan Sieber (Upgrader) Box Hill, VIC

Wonderful experience with Peter and his team. Peter helped me to purchase my first home in Australia by doing all my paperwork and submitting to the lender of my choice. I was informed regularly throughout the process of my application. No problems or hassles and I was happy to have my loan approved within my settlement time. Thank you Blackburn team. Keep up the good work.

Liz Nguyen (First Home Buyer) Blackburn, VIC

The service from Mortgage Choice for the purchase of my apartment has been superb. It was my first property purchase in Australia and Peter helped me prepare all the necessary documentations, fitting into my schedule. I really appreciate the dedication this firm does to ensure the application goes through smoothly, and by giving me regular updates throughout my application. Thank you. Keep up the good work.

Elizabeth (First Home Buyer) Doncaster East, VIC

Peter from Mortgage Choice Blackburn was exceptional to work with. He went above and beyond to make the whole process of buying a house stress-free and enjoyable. He was readily available to take all my calls and answer my many questions. Vicki promptly kept us updated during the whole process.

I would highly recommend Peter and Vicki, and will definitely use them again in the future. I cannot thank them enough for all the hard work and time they put into helping my partner and I buy our first home.

Jessica & Michael (First Home Buyer) Hampton Park, VIC

Peter, Lynne and Vicki have just been fantastic throughout the refinancing process. We had various roadblocks along the way (including a missing Title!!) but they graciously accommodated us while everything was sorted out and could not have been more helpful. Their respective communication was prompt and thorough. This is now the third time we have used Peter's expertise for home loan finance and we highly recommend him to anyone seeking leading industry advice and guidance.

B & H (Refinancer) Box Hill North, VIC

Peter and his team at Mortgage Choice Blackburn are amazing! We first met Peter 11 years ago when we purchased our first home. Since this time we have watched others weather the financial hardships that come along with having borrowed more than they could really comfortably afford. Starting a family and subsequent changes to income, made things financially difficult at times, but nowhere near as challenging as they could of been, if we had over extended ourselves.

We were so grateful to have had a broker who encouraged us to dream big, but most importantly only borrow what we could truly afford, knowing the financial challenges we would experience as our family grew. When it was time to refinance we had no hesitation in returning to Peter, knowing that he would make the process as painless as possible, and give us advice we could trust.

We weren't disappointed! His attention to detail, clear communication, and understanding of our needs made the whole process a relative breeze. We would highly recommend anyone looking to speak to an honest, expert in the industry, to speak to Peter & the team at Mortgage Choice Blackburn.

Jacki Brewer (Refinancer) Blackburn, VIC

As first home buyers, we would have been completely lost without Peter's advice and guidance. We can't recommend Peter and the team highly enough.

Steve & Kristin (First Home Buyer) Officer, VIC

The service was excellent and personalised, numerous questions were answered, everything was explained and nothing was too much trouble.

Petra (Upgrader) Doncaster East, VIC

Peter and the mortgage broker team at Mortgage Choice Blackburn were fantastic to deal with. Thank you for all your help.

Roland Youakim (Property Investor) Blackburn, VIC

Peter and Lynne have made our home loan journey as easy and painless as possible. From knowing absolutely nothing about loans and the housing market, to buying our first home, to changing our loan to suit our current needs as a new family of 3, Blackburn Mortgage Choice has held our hand and helped us every single step of the way. We recommend them to everyone!

Nicole & Matty (Refinancer) Boronia, VIC

I have dealt with Peter for 3 purchases over the past 12 years and he is always my go to person for the right advice and the right loan.

Cathie (Upgrader) Wantirna, VIC

Peter was an efficient person to work with and was always prompt in replying to my many questions as a first home buyer. I was happy with the whole process and would recommend Peter and his team in Blackburn & Box Hill.

Kay (First Home Buyer) Forest Hill, VIC

I've never gone through the process of buying a house before and Peter was great from the beginning. He gave me advise in language I could follow, and made sure I was financially set up for all the hidden costs that you get once contracts are signed and settlement day comes. I was always able to email him or Vicki when I had questions, needed advise, or just needed something explained to me. I have had plenty of property reports sent through over the last few months which were a great guide when putting in offers. You never know how long it will take to buy a place, but Peter and Vicki were always there to help.

Laura (First Home Buyer) Lilydale, VIC

Thanks Peter, Vicki and Lynne for all your help with my mortgage ... and the extra time, patience and tips you provided to me Peter! As a first home buyer, purchasing a property interstate (which made everything even more challenging) I was always grateful for your prompt response to every question I had. I really felt the whole time that you were committed to helping me out and I have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks for everything!

Alex (Property Investor) Box Hill North, VIC

You guys are great. Fast and smooth. I really enjoy doing business with you.

Ismail & Sonia (Refinancer) Eltham, VIC

Thank you Lynne, and please thank Peter. It is always a pleasure to do business with him and I will certainly highly recommend his services to everybody I can. Please let him know when he upgrades his car to a Porsche he should avail himself of Darren’s services.

Jen & Darren (Refinancer) Castella, VIC

Thank you for your service. I found working with both Peter and Lynne a pleasure. For me, the most important aspect of their service has been well placed updates and follow up touch points. I felt part of the mortgage process without having to be the driver of the mortgage process. A great relief.

Michael (Property Investor) Forest Hill, VIC

I hope you both are doing well. First of all I want to thank you both for sorting our finance for home loan and make it look like a piece of cake. We both really appreciate your efforts, it means a lot to us. It would not have been easy without you both.

Saurabh & Priyanka (First Home Buyer) Doreen, VIC

Being a first-time home buyer, I had no idea about the processes involved. Peter and Lynne were always extremely prompt and helpful in answering all of my questions. I would highly recommend them to anyone trying to navigate a process they are unfamiliar with.

Lara (Property Investor) Blackburn, VIC

A very big thank-you for helping out with the purchase of our new house and assisting with the mortgage process. We certainly couldn’t have done it without you both.

Matt & Jess (Upgrader) Chirnside Park, VIC

From knowing absolutely nothing about loans and the housing market, to buying our first home, to changing our loan to suit our current needs as a new family of 3, Blackburn Mortgage Choice has held our hand and helped us every single step of the way.

Nicole (Refinancer) Boronia, VIC

Peter and Lynne are a good team. From choosing a home loan to settlement, they ensure the process is as simple and painless as it can be. They are very responsive to my enquiries, providing answers and taking actions on short notice. I am very impressed with Peter and Lynne's service, and will definitely go to them for any future home loan needs.
For the first time buyer, it might be helpful to know which party (bank/lawyers, conveyancer,etc.) does what, since they work with each other behind the scenes and I wasn't sure if things were progressing. But in reality, if I had any questions or worries, one email to Lynne always got it resolved, so it's not a big issue.

Dominic (First Home Buyer) Rowville, VIC

Hi Peter Thank you so much for your service. You were proactive, professional and always very helpful. Your turn around time for any query was very impressive. We will surely recommend your service to friends and family. Good luck.

Priya & Jagat (First Home Buyer) Williams Landing, VIC

Honestly, you both were so friendly and helpful throughout the whole process!!!! They were fantastic through the whole process, giving great advice and listening to me needs. I will recommend you both to my friends!

Ash (Refinancer) Mitcham, VIC

Top notch service! Peter and Lynne were great. Prompt responses to all our queries and sound, practical advice were the things we appreciated most from Peter. I will definitely refer Peter and Lynne to my friends and family.

Ven & Frank (First Home Buyer) Vermont, VIC

Both exceptional people work with. Peter explained things really clearly and in an easy way to understand. Lynne's communication and responses were very quick and always felt in the loop. Always willing to go the extra mile and meet at a convenient time or place that suited us. Really happy with the service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.

Joel & Nicole (First Home Buyer) East Ringwood, VIC

We are supremely impressed with the service we received from Mortgage Choice Blackburn. We were supported all the way through and for a first time home buyer we couldn't have felt more at ease. Lynne and Peter were so attentive and thorough from application to settlement. We were never in the dark about the process, even our silly questions were answered without fuss. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to my family and friends.

Candice and Andrew (First Home Buyer) Berwick, VIC

It was a pleasure working with Peter and Vicki. Organising loans is of course a stressful business but good, calm advice and constant updates made the process significantly easier. From start to finish the Mortgage Choice team presented themselves professionally. I wish them all the best in the future.

Peter and Lynne are wonderful. From our first meeting we have felt that they only have our interests in their sights. They are warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We have recommended them to our friends and family because we have been so happy with their service.

Nicole & Matthew (Refinancer) Boronia, VIC

My previous experience with a broker was disheartening - sketchy information, mistakes, minimal communication - I never wanted to use a broker again. A friend recommended Peter. I was hesitant, but I gave him a call. Within minutes of talking to Peter, and emails from him immediately after getting off the phone, I had the information I needed to make a decision on what to do with my home. When we moved to next level to organise finance, Peter guided us clearly through the process, and with help from Lynne (his partner), they had us sorted within a couple of weeks, even with the slowness we know banks work at. I have use Peter and Lynne a number of times now, and process was always smooth and a lot easier than I would have expected. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, straight forward broker service.

Paul & Jodie (Refinancer) Grovedale, VIC

Peter, Lynne and Vicki were very helpful and patient. They ensured the process was smooth and easy to understand. We would not hesitate to use their services again.
