Hello and welcome to my page. My name is Stephen Venn. I am married with 2 daughters, one at University and the other is a teacher. We've lived on the Peninsula since 1990.

Having worked for 40 years within the Banking & Finance Industry, I understand how frustrating and time consuming it can be to have to try and find the right loan, or combination of loans, to suit your circumstances, often within a tight time frame.

In May 2000, I became a Mortgage Choice Specialist Home Loan broker to fulfil that particular need in my community. Since then I have helped hundreds of my neighbours to achieve their goals and sometimes, their dreams.

No matter if you're:

  • first home buyers
  • upsizers and downsizers
  • investors, and
  • those looking to refinance their existing loan to lower their repayments or consolidate debt.

I can help you find home loan that suits your needs, not the lenders!

My role as your broker 

My role as your Mortgage Broker is to provide you relevant information, education and direction to assist you in choosing the right home loan to suit your particular financial situation and personal needs. I achieve this by using the unique Mortgage Choice software to analyse products and lenders in addition to my years of experience as a qualified Mortgage Choice Mortgage Broker. I then electronically complete your mortgage application, obtain the relevant approvals and manage the process through to settlement and beyond.

If you're a First Home Buyer we can also assist you with completion of the First Home Owners Grant application (for those people who are eligible for this government initiative).

When should I consider refinancing my loan?

Refinancing should be considered when you want to take advantage of a debt consolidation savings plan, or if you want to switch loan products to one that will pay off your loan faster or better suit your lifestyle and needs. It may also be appropriate to refinance your loan when you are considering a major purchase such as an investment property, car or renovation.

If you are considering refinancing it is important to have your break costs clearly explained before you work out your overall savings. If you want to find out if refinancing is right for you please give me a call.

We can arrange an appointment at my my office or I can come to you.

I work from modern professional offices in Dee Why together with another Mortgage Choice Mortgage Broker and an office manager who provides support through the loan application process.
