Gavin helped me with my first loan on moving back to Newcastle, and again with my refinance after all the interest rate rises. Both experiences were positive. The process was simple, and everything happened really quickly – approvals, settlement, everything! Really great to deal with.

Rod Sattler-Jones’ Success Stories

My wife and I have 3 young kids and due to some bad decisions we got ourself into a bad position where we maxed out credit cards, took our personal loans, financed our car and used a lot of interest free facilities to get by. With multiple interest rate increases it became incredibly difficult to meet our ongoing repayments which added a lot of stress to my family and I. We decided to reach out to Rod for assistance and we were blown away. Rod was able to refinance our home loan and consolidate our debts. Our overall repayments dropped by more than $2000 per month and he was able to arrange for a $2000 cash back payment which we used to buy our kids Christmas presents. We couldn’t thank Rod enough for what he did for our family.

I have a decent property portfolio which consists of my owner occupied home and 3 investment properties. I had so many loans secured against all my properties and it was an accounting mess. On top of this, due to the many interest rate rises we had received, it was becoming quite hard to keep meeting the repayments on all my loans. Rod came highly recommended by my work colleague so I reached out to him to see if he can assist. Rod consolidated my loans so that they were structured correctly from a taxation point of view with 1 loan for each property. On top of this, Rod was able to secure me significantly lower interest rates saving me over $4,500 in interest charges p.a. I couldn’t be happier with Rod’s service and professionalism. Rod is now looking into options of investing in my Self Managed Super Fund and connected me with a trusted accountant and financial planner to assist with this process.

My Husband and I purchased land with the intention of building our first family home. My husband has recently changed jobs so we settled on the land and decided to wait for a few months before choosing a builder and applying for a construction loan. After several interest rate rises we tried with our current lender and multiple other lenders to gain approval for our construction and no longer qualified resulting in the high possibility of us having to sell our land and no longer being able to build our dream home. Rod was referred to me by my friend so I decided to see if he can help. Rod worked so hard to find us a lender with a large enough borrowing capacity for us to complete a build and succeeded. He not only got our loan approved he also was able to secure $4000 cash back from the lender he placed us with. Thanks to Rod, we are in the process of building our dream home and are forever grateful.

Gavin Bennett’s Success Stories

My husband and I had been saving for our first home for years and didn’t think we had enough savings as a deposit and thought our dream of owning a home in the current market was out of reach. A friend of ours recommended I speak to Gavin and am I glad we did. After an in depth conversation about our total financial position, Gavin explained that we are eligible for a government scheme that allowed us to purchase a house with a small 5% deposit, no stamp duty and no lender mortgage insurance. To our surprise, we actually had more than the minimum deposit required. Gavin was so thorough and explained everything in so much detail as this was so new to us. He submitted a pre-approval application for us to secure our place in the government scheme and we located and secured our first home only a few weeks later. Without Gavin we would still be renting paying off someone else’s mortgage.

I am an existing client of Gavin’s. He did the finance for our home loan a couple of years ago. He recently contacted me to let me know that my home loan had been open for 2 years and he is conducting an annual review of my loan. I was blown away by this. I had used other brokers and dealt with banks directly in the past and never once had I been contacted for a review. Gavin was able to secure a discount with my current lender but also let me know of a promotion going with another lender offering a significantly lower rate and a cashback offer. I made the decision to refinance, saving over $1000 in interest and I lowered my monthly repayments and went on a small holiday with the $4000 cashback Gavin secured for me. Gavin did what he said he would do and the service I received from Gavin is second to none.

I am self employed and have always struggled when it came to finance approval due to my business structure. I have had my loan for years and I have been stuck on a ridiculously high rate. I have spoken to my bank to get the rate down and been referred to other brokers in the past and no one has been able to help me. I was referred to Gavin and reluctantly reached out thinking I would be knocked back again. To my surprise, it was the complete opposite. Gavin was so knowledgeable and immediately identified multiple lenders that would consider my situation. Gavin collected the appropriate documents from me and submitted an application to refinance my loan. After only 24 hours Gavin called with the good news that my application was formally approved. I couldn’t believe it. Gavin was able to reduce my loans by over 2% which saved me $6,500 in interest over the next year and also secured me a $2000 cashback offer. Gavin literally is a miracle worker.

Ange Dodovski’s Success Stories

I was lucky enough to purchase a house a few years ago and fixed my loan at a very low fixed rate. I used a broker who I never heard from again. The broker didn’t contact me at the end of my fixed rate and my rate ended up reverting to a ridiculously high rate. When I contacted the broker, he told me there was nothing he can do about it. I was then referred to Ange at Finance Empire, who was able to present me with multiple options. I was able to refinance my home loan, decreasing my rate by almost a full percent and secured me a $4000 cash back promotion for refinancing. Ange exceeded our expectations throughout the whole process. From start to finish all communication was spot on. A broker I will be referring to friends and family.

I wanted to purchase a property with my girlfriend. We didn’t have a large deposit and I have owned property in the past, so I wasn’t eligible for any first home buyer benefits. I booked an appointment with Ange at Finance Empire. I honestly didn’t think I would be able to buy another property with the deposit I had. Ange was amazing. She took the time to listen to our circumstances, asked us a few questions was able to come up with the option of using my parents as security guarantors on the loan. We were able to purchase a house with the assistance of my parents which I didn’t even know was possible. Ange was truly amazing. The whole process was seamless and stress free. She was very knowledgeable and met with my parents separately to discuss their obligations as a security guarantor. Her communication was excellent, and we were always kept up to date on the process of our application. Without Ange we would still be renting instead of paying off our own home.
