As a first home buyer Smartline was extremely helpful throughout the process of purchasing my first home. Ryan and his time were prompt and exceeded expectations, reducing extra stress that could come of this process. My finance was unconditional well before it was required and made the process really smooth.

02 March 2022  


With Gods grace , we collected our key last week. In our journey Ryan Mau have did a wonderful job which makes the process so easy for us. I didn’t expected, it will be so smooth, particularly when we are on visa with less than 1 year validity. It’s only because of Ryan’s professionalism, experience and team work. Ryan and his team mates Chrissy and Angus responded quickly on all matters as a team.

Before I coming going to Ryan, I had tried 2 mortgage brokers for our new home build at a new development and both were making the process more complicated. For other reasons and due to this mortgage brokers , we dropped that plan and proceeded with current house plan and God brings Ryan through real

I really appreciate the way Ryan dealt . Simple , straight forward and quick.

Highly recommendable and I will refer to everyone. God Bless Ryan and Team

After being turned down by our own bank, Ryan helped us secure a new and much better loan that enabled us to consolidate debt and have enough left over to finish our renovations. Friendly and approachable yet always professional, he kept us updated every step of the way and we can’t recommend him highly enough. This is the second time in 11 years he has helped us negotiate the world of finance - thanks, Ryan!

10 January 2020  


The banks refused to help me with my problems.i contacted each broker in Mackay and all told me they couldnt help me. Ryan was the last one left to contact and he offered to try.The end result was a far better option than i was hoping for. I am 100% satisfied and so thankful to Ryan. Raymond Ellis

Ryan went above and beyond to find the best home loan for us. As new home owners we were clues of the whole process but Ryan made it a breeze and cover everything with us.

01 October 2014  


This was our 1st home loan. Very new to everything which was very daunting. Ryan walked us through step by step all the way. Explained everything in detail and spoke in a way that we could understand. Was contactable via email , phone or tex at anytime of the day/night with questions or concerns. Have already recommended Ryan and the Smartline firm to all friends and family.

20 August 2014  


Great service, able to be contacted at any time, and good advice provided.

08 August 2014  


I was very impressed with Ryans friendly, open professional approach. I felt that I was valued as an individual client and not just another number. I also found he was easy to talk to and communicate with, relaying things in a manner I could understand.

Whilst going through our loan process, Ryan was on leave. This did not effect the service that we received - Heather took the bull by the horns (so to speak) and upon his return, Ryan knew where we were at and continued the high standard of service. We can't thank both Advisors enough for the reassurance and confidence that we felt through this process.

Ryan was a great help. He has done an awesome job in helping my wife and I to get all relevant papers and processes in place to set up and supply our house loan. He made the whole process very easy and met all deadlines with ease. Ryan also went to extra lengths to reply to all emails and questions with all information and answers needed, even after hours. I would strongly recommend Ryan and have already done so.

Myself and my partner were very impressed with our adviser,Ryan Mau, he did a fantastic and speedy job. He made the process very easy and hassle free for us both. We would deffinately use both Ryan and Smartline again.

15 December 2010  


As a client based overseas I found that I needed to rely on Ryan for more than standard service to ensure my loan was processed accurately and in a timely manner. For Ryan's part he provided great client service - unfortunately the same could not be said for the lender. Unfortunatley this lack of service on the Bank's behalf required me to devote far more time and effort than should have been needed.

12 December 2010  


Ryan is a great broker who is thorough, motivated, honest and above all, what I like - a straight shooter!!
