Free Advice for Mortgage and Loan Solutions

Here you’ll find articles explaining in plain language some of the most asked about subjects regarding mortgages, home loans, debt management, and much more.  Let’s start by talking about what exactly a mortgage broker is and how working with one benefits your lending needs.

What exactly is a mortgage broker and why would you use one when applying for your home loan instead of going directly to the bank?

A mortgage broker is someone who acts on your behalf when talking to banks and other financial institutions. They are the conduit between someone seeking a home loan and the potential lenders. After the earthquake events of 2010, 2011 and 2016 it is important than ever to get that extra assistance when purchasing in Christchurch and other parts of the South Island.

In New Zealand, mortgage brokers are almost exclusively paid by the banks. This means our services to you are free. You should be careful to check this with your mortgage broker at the outset, however, as some brokers do charge for certain aspects of their advice. However, as mentioned above, our mortgage broker’s service to you is a free service.

  • It wouldn't be wrong to say that Scott is the best in town. In 2019, we initially reached out to him based on stellar Google reviews while purchasing our first home. Now, in 2024, for our new property, choosing Scott again was a no-brainer. His exceptional skills as a mortgage advisor speak for themselves; he truly excels in his field.

  • When we began our journey towards our first home purchase, Greg was a specialist that we decided to ask for a mortgage advice. All the info that Greg gave us was structured and almost completely understandable even for those who know absolutely nothing about buying a house. Greg was truly patient to explain us things that we struggled to figure out on our own. We really appreciate his guidance, and fairly can recommend him as a wonderful mortgage broker.
