Customer Reviews

Michael Chadwick Review

"Can't speak highly enough of him"

Absolutely loved my experience with Michael when my husband and I bought our first home together. He is super responsive and quick to act which is obviously important when it comes to buying property. He was fabulous when we wanted to refinance and put in the work to organise us a better rate. He does everything to make the lending experience seamless and to make your life easier! Importantly, Michael is genuine and kind and really cares about us and our family. Have recommended him to several family members and friends and can’t speak highly enough of him.

James Downey Review

"Such an amazing service..."

Full credit to James Downey from Loan Market Elevate, I generally don’t review services but after receiving such an amazing service if I don’t review it will be injustice. He is very friendly and pleasant to talk to, always ready to help and deliver a solution in optimal time.

I was struggling with increase in interest rates to keep up with finances. James managed to refinance my home loan and reduce my repayments to a much lower interest rate which assisted me to increase my savings from day one and secured me a refinance rebate at the same time!

Rakesh Swami Review

"Absolutely amazing..."

Rakesh Swami from Loan Market who helped us with our Land and Home Mortgage has been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING at helping us in every possible way - he has called bank branches for us, spoken to relevant people to expedite things, answered even the smallest of questions in detail, helped us out in understanding numbers and getting us the best contract with banks. In short, pretty much gone above and beyond to support us in every way possible.

I highly recommend speaking to Rakesh for any kind of mortgage/financial situation.

James Downey Review

"Always ready to help..."

James & his team managed the refinance of multiple investment loans, our home loan and a construction loan all at once. Despite the multiple moving parts, the process was easy and even more successful than we could have hoped for.

The best part is, once it was all done he checked in regularly to try and find more savings and help with our cashflow. It's a huge benefit to have a broker & a team who listen, get the best result but then don't walk away...they keep connected as a long term partnership.

Frequently Asked Questions


How much deposit do I need to purchase a property?

Typically lenders ask for 20% of the total house price before they’ll consider giving you a loan but there are a number of ways around this. Some lenders will accept a smaller deposit but it’s likely that you’ll need to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI).  There might also be grants that you can take advantage of. Get in touch to chat about your options.

Can you help me understand my borrowing capacity?

Of course! Borrowing capacity refers to how much you can borrow from a lender. As your borrowing capacity can differ widely from lender to lender, get in touch today and we can help you understand your maximum borrowing power from the 30 plus lenders we have access to.

How will you decide which loan is best suited to my circumstances?

With more than 30 home lenders on our panel, you and I are spoiled for choice. We narrow the search down by first understanding your needs and objectives. We will show you the features of each loan and explain the benefits, allowing you to make an informed choice which lender and loan you would like to apply for.

Does it cost to use a broker?

You do not pay a fee for our services. Instead, we’re paid a commission by the lender you choose for doing the work on their behalf and looking after your home loan needs ongoing. Learn more here and get in touch if you have any questions.  

What fees should I be aware of when purchasing a property?

There are several fees that often aren’t discussed in length when buying a property. These include stamp duty, application fees, pest and building inspections and more. Get in touch with a broker today for an up-front conversation about all the hidden fees. Find a summary here.  

What grants are available to me?

There are many grants that are available for those wanting a home loan and the options differ from state to state. To find out what grants you are eligible for, get in touch with our Home Finance Managers to help you understand what grants you could be eligible for.

How much does it cost to refinance?

Some of the costs you’d expect to pay include discharge, application and settlement fees and we work with you ensure that the savings outweigh the costs when refinancing from one lender to another. To find out how much you can save by refinancing your loan, give us a call.  

What is Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)?

LMI is required if you need to borrow more than 80% of the value of the property you are purchasing. You pay a premium which can be funded in the home loan and it protects your lender if you can’t pay your loan and the home needs to sold.
