Testimonials.

"I cannot recommend Warrick enough!! Numbers are not my thing, and Warrick was always there, happily answering any questions we had. He spoke in a language I could understand and walked us through every aspect of buying our first home, including a great mortgage deal and advice on insurances. We are now in our new home after a busy eight weeks scouring the North Shore. It would have taken us a lot longer if we didn't have full trust in Warrick and his advice, giving us the confidence to act quickly. Thanks so much again Warrick. We owe you a beer, or seven!"Jenna & Mike

"Warrick has provided our banking services and advice for a few years now. We have always found him to be responsive and attentive to our needs. He’s been quick to suggest a better way of doing something, if there is an option that might suit us better, and appears happy to do the hard yards, make the phone calls to other advisers such as the accountant, and keep things moving along. I have no hesitation in recommending Warrick as someone who can look after your banking or lending needs, with a big picture view, who's also a decent bloke."Kris

"It was an incredible experience with Warrick who made our purchase as smooth as silk. He explained the process very clearly and well prepared our supporting documents that made the approval from the bank happen so quickly. Importantly, he always responds and acts on our enquiries promptly and keeps us posted on the progress. I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a mortgage for your first home. Well done, Warrick!"Lyn

"Warrick is the best mortgage broker we have ever had. Very helpful and always responsive with a professional manner. We’ve used his services two times so far and can absolutely recommend him. He was able to get the best deal and maximum possible cash-back for us and took the best care of all the complexities behind the scene. Thank you, Warrick, and we will come back to you again next time."Mehdi

"We entered the housing market for the first time this year and admittedly found out that we needed to quickly understand a whole lot of things we never had to know before. Everything from building reports, to lawyer documents. Warrick was recommended to us, and had it not been for his knowledge and incredible support, we would have been overwhelmed and possibly given up. Warrick was an amazing support guiding us through each step and doing all the hard work on our behalf. He provided us with professional advice throughout and was always available even for the questions I felt silly asking. We ended up purchasing our first home in September and would highly recommend Warrick to anyone who is thinking of purchasing a home."Kerryn & Reuben

"Warrick recently helped us to re-mortgage our existing home and purchase another property. He took the stress out of the application process and secured us a great deal across our mortgages. We chose Warrick because of his friendly and professional manner, his contacts, negotiating skills and his extensive banking background. Nothing was ever a problem for Warrick and we were very pleased to have him on our side. We would recommend (and have done many times) Warrick as a mortgage adviser if you want an approachable and knowledgeable person who can get you the best results." Ange & Justin
